In an effort to prevent revenge-fueled attacks upon other archangel’s territories by a grief-stricken Neha, Raphael offers Jason’s services to her as an impartial investigator into the murder. Since Neha had imprisoned her husband, in “solitary confinement,” some 300 years earlier for having an affair with and impregnating her sister, the number of suspects should be minimal and the investigation quick.
Even though Neha despises Raphael, he is the Chief Archangel and she accepts his offer – with conditions. She demands that Jason submit to a blood bond with her niece, Mihaya, for the duration of the investigation so as to prevent territorial secrets from being relayed to Raphael.
Mihaya happens to be the daughter produced by the illicit affair. Neha executed Mihaya’s mother (also Neha’s sister) immediately following the birth and has used Mihaya as a weapon against Eris and as a literal whipping post for most of her life. Now that Eris is dead, Mihaya essentially serves no further purpose for Neha.
No one, not Raphael nor Jason nor Mihaya, has any doubt that Neha means to extract her vengeance and salve her grief by killing Jason and Mihaya on a “technicality” of violating the blood bond. But then the beaten and eviscerated bodies of courtiers close to Neha begin to literally fall from the sky, the balconies, and the cliff sides. Now the game has changed for everyone.
As in each of the previous novels, Nalini Singh’s description of the Archangel World is rich and detailed, from buildings to rooms to clothing. And all the characters – major, secondary and incidental alike – are physically fleshed out from their hair to their boots.
Taken together, the animate and the inanimate, these descriptions are so full that the reader can visualize the action as if watching a video instead of reading a book. One can almost hear the hiss of the coiling snakes, see the green and black flames shooting across the sky and feel the touch of a hand on an arm.
But it is Singh’s style of expressing the character’s emotions that make the story a fulfilling read. Her explorations of hate, revenge, reason versus excuse, and the mental subtleties that differentiate between “damaged” and “broken” are sometimes uncomfortably blunt but never preachy. Her use of internal monologue positioned between the sentences, sometimes even between the words, of an ongoing dialogue keep the reader clear on characters’ motivations.
The major crisis and the ending of the book fall in place naturally, though not predictably, with the beginning and the middle. References to events and conversations from previous books in the series are consistent and repeated accurately, no artistic license being taken with the timeline or previously established characterizations.
The story ends cleanly, no cliffhanger. But it is clear that the major characters of this book will reappear in future books as major supporting characters for other members of Raphael’s Seven and Elena’s Guild.
When I read the first book in this series I was amazed by what a harsh, bordering on unlikeable hero Raphael was in the beginning. He hadn’t lost all ability to empathize with the human race but he was straddling the line of that. But after spending time in Neha’s court Raphael’s early time look positively gentlemanly.
This is what I know….NO ONE, that is no one holds a grudge like and Angel. Neha kept her consort as a prisoner for 300 years because he had an affair. But don’t let that fool you into thinking she didn’t love him. She did in a weird and twisted only Angels would understand way. So when he is killed Neha asks Raphael for assistance in finding the killer.
Jason wasn’t really on my radar. He is the broken quiet guy who has no feeling and can disappear into shadow right before your eyes. So he was interesting but I wasn’t dying to read a book about him, until I started this one. It seems that childhood scars never go away even if you are thought immortal and Jason has some doozies. He is a broken man who believes that he can never love only to be proved wrong when the right woman comes along. I know it is basic PNR plotting but I don’t care I love it and it works.
Mahiya was a fantastic heroine. She isn’t really a physical fighter but she knows how to play a good game and wearing masks has served her well in Neha’s court. She is so good at reading others and hiding everything that she is really feeling. Neha’s court is a battlefield of lies and deceptions so when she meets Jason and he is honest with her even if it wasn’t exactly what she wants to hear she decides to allow herself a little happiness with a man who wants her but proclaims he could never love her. It sounds harsher than it is…remember he is broken.
Still the expansion of the world and seeing how another Angel’s dominion is run is extremely interesting and I liked how it really highlighted the differences between various courts and how deal with things.
I enjoyed the relationship that built between Jason and Mahiya. It didn’t go superfast but it was nice to see them connect right away having a painful past in common.
There were a few surprises and twists and the killer wasn’t who I thought it was going to be. The book was really entertaining and showed a few more talents that various angels have picked up.
Overall I enjoy this series and have really liked my time away from Raphael and Elena.
I have loved Jason in every scene that we met him in during the past 4 books. However I didnt know anything about the Heroine - I have to admit to extreme nerves because this book because this series is in my top 3 of ALL TIME favourites.
I needn't have worried because Nalini obviously knows just what her characters need. I was worried that the heroine would be all tough or match him as a spy. Instead she is gentle but has a core spine of steel that has allowed her to survive in Neha's court. I also realised that Jason needed to be loved, not matched by a fellow spy. Some of the scenes were just beautiful.
After putting the book down I was supremely satisfied because Nalini dares to be different. This romance is original, her alpha men are original and the overall plot of the series is sublime. So many authors start to lose the thread of their series and the villains turn into pussy cats and the series goes to hell. I know just by picking up a Nalini Singh book I am getting a quality read that the author has put 100% effort into creating the best novel and series she can before releasing it to the public.
Sorry if I seem to be going off topic but in this day and age with so many series and authors disappointing me - I look at the honour and commitment of the author just as much as the words on the page.
Thankyou Nalini Singh - authors like you keep me reading.
