Archangel’s Consort (Guild Hunter #3)
by Nalini Singh | Gollancz (Feb 2011)
Paperback, 324 pages | Paranormal Romance

Archangel’s Consort is the third instalment in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. I adored the first two books and fell instantly in love with Elena and Raphael. Although I did enjoy this book, it just didn’t measure up to the first two. In fact it felt a bit formulaic; the intense romance, vampire murders, which Elena has to solve by using her tracking ability and lots of hot passionate sex – just felt a bit of a repeat of book two and therefore this book was a little disappointing.

But, don’t get me wrong, all these aspects are the reasons I fell in love with this series to begin with, but as with all series, the story and characters all have to move forward in some way. I wanted to see the characters grow further as they just seemed stuck, doing the same thing over and over.

I was hoping that Raphael and Elena’s characters would have grown and I wish something had happened that would have changed the dynamics a little. It would have been interesting if some of the other characters, that are included in each of the books, were brought to the fore a little more.

However, you will notice that I still give this a rating of 3.5/5 despite my disappointment, well that’s because the writing is still as lush and descriptive as always, there’s still plenty of action, and I just love Elena and Raphael and enjoy everything about them, as individuals and as a couple.

VERDICT:

Archangel’s Concort is a very good third instalment, although a little disappointing as I was hoping for something more. However, this is still an awesome series and one which I will follow blindly and recommend without hesitation – I for one cannot wait for book four, Archangel’s Blade!
