Description from Book:
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best – but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option – even if the task is impossible.
Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other – and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break . . .
This was my first Nalini Singh book. I found it a very enjoyable read. I certainly enjoyed the characters of Elena and Raphael. Angels, however, aren’t so much my thing. Vampires, I am fine with. I can’t quite say why angels (especially angels with wings) make it difficult for me to suspend my disbelief – but, they do. I did get caught up enough in the story to be interested in following Elena and Raphael’s journey in the next book.
