Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance…
With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.
Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.
With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.
I liked Archangel’s Storm! This one was interesting and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
It was nice getting a book focusing on Jason. He’s a pretty mysterious guy, and it was great to learn more about him. I did like Jason and Mahiya together, and I’m curious to see how that works out. Considering everything Jason does, he’s probably going to be away quite a bit, but still, I can’t help but like them together.
I really, really liked Mahiya. She’s had to deal with a lot, and I can’t imaging being in Neha’s court as her niece. There’s a lot of family history we didn’t know until this book, but I’m glad we know it. I feel like it explained a lot about Neha, and I feel like I understand her better. It’s too bad we don’t get more about her consort, who’s only been mentioned, but I’m honestly glad we get the backstory.
We do get more of Dmitri and Honor in this book, and I was a little disappointed with that. Mostly because I just read their book, and I didn’t need more of them in this one. But I also wanted more of Jason and Mahiya and they took away from that. Even though their chapters were pretty scattered throughout the book, I still wanted less of them and more of Jason and Mahiya.
I do want to know if everything we learn about Neha’s family will go somewhere in the books to come. I hope so, because it did catch my interest. I wasn’t expecting that to happen, but once I knew, I really wanted more.
3 stars. I liked Archangel’s Storm but I wish we had more of Jason and Mahiya and less of Dmitri and Honor.
