Paranormal Romance Review: Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh

Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh (Guild hunter #5)


gifted

Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

 It looks to me that with Nalini each book is a hit or miss. Archangels' Storm was lovely. Both Jason and Mahiya are gorgeous characters, and reading about their love story, their interactions is pure pleasure.


Neha is interesting and complex archangel, however the intrigue itself is easy to guess from the very beginning, so if you want to have some sort of mystery in this book, ti's not going to happen.

There are also updates on Raphael and Elena, and we find out what Dmitri and his new wife are up to. There is a tiny insight into Raphael's mother and Lijuan, a bit of Venom and Ilium. I have to admit I enjoy Lijuan - she is a villain in almost every book, and she is someone I can't quite understand yet, purely because she operates on her own strange logic.

Overall, there is plenty of beauty in Archangel's Storm: lush Indian landscapes, architecture and even wonderful clothes that Mahiya is wearing, but above all, Jason and Mahiya's relationship is mesmerising and poetic. It's definitely refreshing to read something like that once in a while.

Я бы сказала, что Архангельский Шторм - это одна из лучших книг серии, которая в общем-то оказалась очень неровной по качеству. Я нахожу, что мне то нравится то не нравится книга этого автора в зависимости от персонажей.

Джейсон и Махайя - оказались очень поэтичной, даже гипнотичной парой. Между ними прекрасная динамика, замечательные диалоги и волнующие моменты медленного изучения тайн друг друга.

Помимо их отношений книга красива сама по себе - красочные ландшафты, великолепные наряды, экзотическая Индия с её яркой архитектурой, однако интриги как таковой в сюжете практически нет. Догадаться кто такой кульприт, стоящий за всеми неприятностями несложно с самого начала, и нам остаётся терпеливо дожидаться когда до того же заключения дойдут и герои.

В этой книге нам удаётся посмотреть одним глазком на Рафаэля и Елену, новобрачную пару Дмитрия и Хонор, Венома, Илиума, и наконец Личуан - главную злодейку серии с мамой Рафаэля.

Я признаюсь, что именно Личуан интригует меня больше всех, потому как понять её практически невозможно.

В общем, книга хорошая, красивая и свежая. Рекомендую.

I love this series, and enjoyed this one. I did think that the Dimitri updates took away the pace of this story. Though I did enjoy them.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
