Elena Deveraux is a vampire hunter with a unique talent to detect the rogue vampires. Because of her ability to sense these vampires she is one of the best at the Guild agency and is hired by master vampires or angels to retrieve their "property". Now she is summoned to the head quarters of Archangel Rafael, who specifically asks for her assistance and he doesn’t take no for an answer.
Rafael is the archangel who runs the territory in Manhattan and he does that with an iron fist. All the vampires and their masters are under his control, but there is a situation he and his fellow angels cannot handle. So he calls the local Guild agency for help and specifically asks for the only hunter who can help him track their problem.
Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh is her first novel in the Guild Hunter series and a fabulous start.
Elena Deveraux is a strong heroine, who knows how to take care of herself. She always knew she was different from her family and knew she would be at home as a hunter at the Guild. She doesn’t mind working alone, it’s even better that way, it gives her the opportunity to focus only on her target and getting it back to his of her owner.
The summing of Archangel Rafael isn’t what she’s waiting for, because that means working with him is priority number one. Rafael doesn’t like to be left in the dark; he demands loyalty from all his angels and vampires and now from Elena too, at least as long as she is working for him. But Rafael is in for the ride of his life when she awakens intense feelings inside him he didn’t knew he had.
Her secondary characters are great. Sara is Elena’s best friend and the head of the Guild, she always has Elena’s back no matter what en if that means she has to face Archangel Rafael, then that is what she’ll do. Also love the fellow angels around Rafael, they are one by one interesting characters and I really hope to see more of them in the future novels.
This novels is definitely a must read and I’m going to put this author on my auto buy list from now on, she is amazing and I don’t want to miss anything she writes.
