Angels Blood by Nalini Singh

4 out of 5 stars.

My first Nalini Singh book and it will definitely not be my last.

Elena is a vampire hunter. And she works for angels, hunting the vamps that have gone bad. But what do you do when an angel goes bad?

Nalini Singh has created a compelling world in Angel's Blood where vampires are created by angels in return for their servitude. Archangels rule the angels, and therefore the world. When one of the most powerful Archangels goes bad our heroine Elena is called in to help with the hunt.

The book is full of vivid imagery- angels flying from buildings in New York! and sizzling sexual tension between Elena and her current boss the Archangel Raphael- who is so alpha male it's untrue.

I hated Raphael at first but over time came to understand and appreciate him. Elena is a feisty heroine with some good one liners. The other Archangels are all well defined characters that no doubt will be developed throughout the series.

This was a great urban fantasy story which is part of a series but to it's credit does not have a big cliffhanger ending. Although I am still glad that I have started to read this series when number 2, Archangel's Kiss is already out with number 3 Archangels Consort due for release anytime now.....
