Like the other books in the series, Archangel's Consort had some great twists and turns, keeping me on the edge of my seat (especially towards the end!) I couldn't put this book down. It's a great mix of intrigue, suspense, action, and romance. The character development is top notch. In this latest installment, it was great to see many of my favorite characters from the earlier books. I loved seeing more of the Seven, especially Aodhan and Illian. They are such interesting characters and I hope they will have larger roles in upcoming books.
Elena as a character is very intriguing. While she's a tough, kick a$$ heroine, she is also loyal, caring, hard working, and honest. She's a strong woman who went through a traumatic experience as a child and who has a difficult relationship with her father as a result of that experience. No 'mary sue' character, she struggles as she adapts to her new body. She also is challenged with her relationship with Raphael, who is so much older and stronger. She seeks to find equal ground between them. One of the strongest beings on the planet and a member of the Cadre of Ten, Raphael is used to getting what he wants. He is not only powerful, he is cruel at times. But Elena makes Raphael more human in his love for her.
Only area for improvement for me was some parts seemed a little repetitive/draggy. That could have been improved with a good editor. But they weren't a big part of the book. All in all, I love this series. Definite keepers!
If you've read Singh's Psy Changeling books, her Guild Hunter series is darker but just as well written. If you like Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward or the Demonica series by Larissa Ione, you'll enjoy this series. Raphael is the ultimate alpha and the dark plotlines, intriguing characters, and disturbing enemies will pull you in.
Also I wanted to complement the artist on the wonderful cover. Very beautifully done!
Other books in the series:
Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter) - book one
Archangel's Kiss (Guild Hunter, Book 2) - book two
Archangel's Consort - book three
Archangel's Blade - book four (Dmitri's story; Singh's blog reports a release date of September 2011)
There are also two novellas: Angels' Judgement in Must Love Hellhounds &Angels' Pawn: A Companion Novella to Angels' Blood. The novellas are not necessary to the main storylines of the books, but they are entertaining reads.

In addition to the wacky weather; Elena has to deal with more family drama that dredges up shallowly buried past trauma. Her half sister’s are being targeted by a rogue vampire as a means to get to Raphael through Elena; and then it turns out that her 10 year old half sister Evelyn just may be hunter-born – which opens up some intriguing revelations which drive home the fact that Jeffrey Deveraux is an even bigger jerk than heretofore realized.
So we have Raphael dealing with the love hate he holds for a mother who was loving and nurturing and doted upon him; and who in her madness broke him and left him to suffer in a field, with shattered bones and a crushed and broken body in blinding agony; and we have Elena dealing with the love hate she feels for a loving mother who abandoned her in death and a father who abandoned her in life.
And here is where I break into a minor SPOILERY rant. As it turns out, Caliane the insane, murdering and atrocity committing archangel – was actually a better parent than Elena’s father. Caliane may have left Raphael broken into bits and pieces; but she explains it was her madness whispering she should kill him and she fought against it – for her son. She knew he was immortal and that he would heal. Jeffrey Deveraux on the other hand knew all along that the hunter-born gene came from his bloodline. I dearly wanted Elena to call him on the carpet and tell him “You KNEW I could scent vampires; and when I told you Slater Patelis the monster was coming (for us), you wouldn’t listen and said no one in this family has ever been a common hunter, and told me to stop telling tall tales. You took no steps to protect us, you’re the reason my mother and sisters are dead. So who’s the abomination now? Boo-ya.” This would be followed up with the classic “you’re dead to me” spit, spit. End of SPOILERY rant.
Add to all this, more archangel politics and Lijuan sticking her nose in everything and it’s a pretty decent ride. 4 ½ stars. I really enjoy the world building, the intrigue, all the side characters; and I like Elena and Raphael – I really do. I just still don’t feel the chemistry and every time they sneak off for some nookie (which they seem to do an awful lot) it’s “Oh God, here they go AGAIN. Can we please get back to the story”???
