I love the Guild Hunter series. It features angels and vampires. The Guild hunts down vampires who try to skip out on their contracts to the angels who turn them. The series is a mixture of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Mostly it follows the archangel of New York, Rapheal and his consort, Guild Hunter turned angel, Elena. But there are also books that have covered some of the side characters’ romances, which have been a lot of fun.

The series has been mostly following Rapheal and Elena as we’ve been building to this war for a few books now. The Cascade is also coming, which is doing some strange things to everyone’s power, for good or bad.

I don’t want to go into too much detail on this particular story, because of spoilers to this story and the earlier books, if you haven’t read them. What I will say, is that the series has been leading up to this point and this book doesn’t disappoint the anticipation leading up to it. I’m not sure where the series goes from here, but I can’t imagine that the series is done. While the series arc does seem like a finale, there are still a lot of stories left to be told for the characters of this series. And, there will be a large revolt if Bluebell doesn’t get his own story.

This series is highly recommended to anyone who likes paranormal romance or urban fantasy, that has plenty of action and romance, which this series has in spades. Each story builds on the previous, so you will want to read in order.

Archangel’s War Narration

5 Hearts

Justine Eyre continues to do a great job with the narration of this series. It has a large cast, with more males than females, but she doesn’t struggle with the large cast of characters. There is also the very old angels that are cold and extremely confident, which she brings out in their voices. I really love her narration. I don’t think I could ever go back to just reading after listening to her narration of the series.

Author Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated frequently).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I only tried book 1 in this series but I should try more one day

    • Such a fun series that only gets better and better as the series goes on.

    • I think this is the only series where I’ve listened to her as a narrator. But I would definitely try her with another series.

  2. I just read my first by this author and really liked it, but it was a contemporary romantic suspense not a fantasy. I’ll have to try one by her too

    • I’ve not tried her contemporary romance. I do want to try her new suspense story that was just released. I do love this series and her Psy-Changeling series.

  3. I’ve read this author a few times and the books have been a hot or miss for me sometimes. But I haven’t read this series yet.

    • I’ve only read her paranormal stories. She does have a new suspense book out that I want to try.

  4. Yes!!! This was fabulous and worth all the build up. Yeah, I was left limp after this one.

    One of these days I will listen to her books on audio. Love Justine Eyre’s work!

  5. Great review. This one was a hard one to review in that anything you say spoils the story and series. I liked this one. It’s a bit slow at the start, but does pick up and dang the war. ^_^

  6. I was happy and satisfied with how this one ended up, although the getting there wasn’t “perfect.” Still, overall a good one and a FABULOUS series. Thanks, Melanie!

    • I love this series soooo much. There was some heartbreak in this story for sure.

  7. Definitely more interested in the suspense. Thanks for the chance.

  8. I absolutely adore this narrator, and I do admire how she handles this series. Very remarkable.

  9. Thanks for this review. My wife loves this series and it deserves all the attention it can get.

    • I really love Nalini Singh’s paranormal stuff. I hope to be about to get to her new suspense story soon, as well.

  10. I need to try this series. Great review!

    • It is such a fun series. I hope you get a chance to try it.
