Wings of silver. Wings of blue. Mortal heart. Broken dreams. Shatter. Shatter. Shatter. A sundering. A grave. I see the end. I see. . .

The world is in chaos as the power surge of the Cascade rises to a devastating crescendo. In furiously resisting its attempts to turn Elena into a vessel for Raphael’s power, Elena and her archangel are irrevocably changed. . .far beyond the prophecy of a cursed Ancient.

At the same time, violent and eerie events around the world threaten to wipe out entire populations. And in the Archangel Lijuan’s former territory, an unnatural fog weaves through the land, leaving only a bone-chilling silence in its wake. Soon it becomes clear that even the archangels are not immune to this deadly evil. This time, even the combined power of the Cadre may not be enough. . .

This war could end them all.


Archangel’s War is book twelve in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. 

In the last book we where left on a cliffhanger ending and the fate of Elena and Raphael was undetermined. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order.

This novel has many different POV’s at the begging and they revolve around Raphael and Elena who are the main couple of the Guild Hunter series even though we do get other couples featured throughout the series. It was great to get the different perspectives, but it also slowed the story down. 

Raphael and Elena’s romance continues to develop and bloom even though we’ve technically seen many HEA for them. I enjoying seeing their growth and development. 

We are also treated to many surprises in this novel and I’d love to tell you about them, but it’s more fun and exciting to be shocked. As for the end; where it goes from here is wide open. I’m curious to see what surprises, emotions, and adventure Nalini Singh will treat use to. 

Narration: Justine Eyre continues to narrate this series and I love how she brings out the voices and emotions on each of the characters. I will say I’m glad I listened to this novel and didn’t read it. I feel if I’d read it would have taken me longer. Why I say this is because; this one was slow at the start and listening made the slowness of the beginning move along. Things didn’t pick up until war comes and that was maybe 80% in. I continue to enjoy the audio for the Guild Hunter series and highly recommend the audios.

More of the series I want to read but have only started.


Yea!! I love this series and loved where this one ended up – what will happen next?? On a side note – This series has some of the best covers out there, but the audiobook covers are not that good. haha

I did find it slow to start as well. It was like, so much build up, almost too much, then the explosion at the end. Nice review!

I’m so far behind on this series. I really enjoy Justine Eyre’s narration so I may need to pick up the audiobooks to catch up. Great review!
