A horrifying secret rises in the aftermath of an archangelic war in New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s deadly and beautiful Guild Hunter world…
The Archangel of Death and the Archangel of Disease may be gone but their legacy of evil lives on—especially in Africa, where the shambling, rotting creatures called the reborn have gained a glimmer of vicious intelligence.
It is up to Titus, archangel of this vast continent, to stop the reborn from spreading across the world. Titus can’t do it alone, but of the surviving powerful angels and archangels, large numbers are wounded, while the rest are fighting a surge of murderous vampires.
There is no one left…but the Hummingbird. Old, powerful, her mind long a broken kaleidoscope. Now, she must stand at Titus’s side against a tide of death upon a discovery more chilling than any other. For the Archangel of Disease has left them one last terrible gift…
I really liked Archangel’s Sun! I’ve really enjoyed this series, and I’m glad the story is continuing!
This book focuses on Titus and the Hummingbird and it picks up where Archangel’s War left off. It’s definitely hard for everyone, and there’s a lot of work to do. There are some pretty terrible surprises along the way, but everything works out in the end.
It’s been a while since I’ve read any of the books in the series, so I was a little bit fuzzy on some of the details. The really nice thing about this book was that I could be a little bit fuzzy on the details and still know what was going on. And what had happened before, of course. A little refresher would have been nice, but at any rate, my fuzziness didn’t get in the way of me enjoying this novel.
I really like the Hummingbird! She’s had a lot to deal with, and she is easily one of my favorite characters in the series now. I’m glad she got her own book, because she’s been mentioned before, and I really liked getting her story. I’m glad things worked out for her, and that she got some happiness. She’s empathetic and a fierce warrior and this really amazing artist. She’s different from Titus in a lot of ways, but I really like them together!
I liked Titus too, and even though I remembered his name coming up before, that was all I remembered about him. We learned a little bit about him, and it sounds like he has quite the family. But I was a lot more interested in Sharine’s story, and I wanted to know everything about her. I didn’t feel the same way about Titus, but I think they’ll be really good for each other. I know we won’t get another book focusing on them, but we’ll for sure see what’s going on with them in the future. Especially with Sharine’s connections to some of the other characters.
I liked seeing Titus and Sharine work together- he really underestimated her, which is understandable, but she also completely proved him wrong. She took the time to listen to his people and wasn’t intimidated by him. She really was the best choice to help him deal with the reborn. And he really did respect her and listen to her, which was nice. And I really appreciated seeing that. I’m not sure why, but I did. She brought a certain kindness and grace to everything she did, which I loved, and she didn’t let what happened destroy her. I think that’s why I loved her so much.
4 stars. I really liked Archangel’s Sun- especially Sharine and her backstory! I can’t wait to read the next book!
