Series: Guild Hunter #11
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal


 

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy…

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind—and now they are failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering across the world. In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

The last few years have been good ones, with the Cascade on some sort of pause.  It’s been business as usual for both Elena and Raphael, but it’s been like looking constantly over your shoulder for the next shoe to drop.  And drop it did, when Elena’s brother-in-law was attacked and left for dead in his home, and threats were left for Elena’s sister and niece.  To say Elena was in the hunt didn’t quite cover it.   Like that wasn’t enough to shake things up, the Cascade just roared forward again and it’s nastier than ever.

As Elena continues her hunt for who almost killed her brother-in-law and to protect her sister and niece, she finds that the attack is part of a series of killings. The question is who is behind them and why.  At the same time the Cascade has attacked not only New York, but also Africa and something crazy is going on in China.  So Raphael and Elena are working overtime to figure out what is going on.  Now you would think that would be more than enough, but no – another strange thing is Elena seems to be regressing and becoming more and more human again.  Plus there is a voice telling her she is part of a prophecy and one will have to die so the other can live.  So who has to die and who is going to live?

As the days go by the answers to who is behind the killings and brutal attack are beginning to point to someone that will hurt Elena to bring down.  And each day she is getting weaker and her wings are being threatened.  Everyone knows her day and night wings might be at risk with everything the voice is saying.  Raphael is trying to move heaven and earth to find the answers to save Elena, but everyone is coming up empty.  It’s becoming a race to see if Elena will capture the killer before she goes down herself.  When all the answers are known, will everyone come out safely on the other side, or will New York be rocked harder than ever before?

Love can conquer all they say, but is it stronger than the oldest and most famous seer in history?  I know that whenever I open a book featuring Elena and Raphael the action will be fierce and the love even hotter.  Archangel’s Prophecy was no exception.  I loved the hunt to find and end the threat to Elena’s sister and niece. I have to admit that I never expected who it turned out to be.   I also lost it several times as Elena was so affected by the Cascade and prophecy.  I saw the true love between Raphael and his consort as the pages became fewer and fewer.  I have to say that the ending was very bittersweet for me and I had to re-read the last couple of chapters several times because I thought a hard rule for me in romance had been broken.  I will also tell you that there is one hell of a cliffhanger.  If you don’t handle those well, you might want to wait until the next book comes out and read them back to back.  Over all, Archangel’s Prophecy is another excellent example of Ms. Singh’s storytelling.  It will challenge all of your emotions before you are finished.  I can promise you this.

Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Paranormal

Kaia Luna, a cook on Ryújin, a BlackSea city, at least she is a cook now but she used to be a lab assistant to her cousin.  So, when Kaia was asked to check in on their new lab experiment, aka Bowen Knight, to see how he was doing, of course she agreed.  What Kaia didn’t expect was for Bowen to wake up while she was the only one in the room or how he would instantly affect her once he was awake.  She also knows that even a weak Bowen can be a deadly one. Kaia discovers new informationwhich seems to say that instead of being a friend to Black Sea, Bowen might be a deadly enemy and he just happens to be her mate.

 

Bowen Adrian Knight, the security chief of the Human Alliance, is shocked to wake up to discover that he should be dead from a sniper shot, Only because his sister, Lily, agreed to let him be used for an experiment is he alive. A second shock is to discover that he is miles down in the ocean on a BlackSea underwater city; and if that isn’t enough, he is being checked on by a sexy and cranky cook that smells like cinnamon.  Once Bowen learns exactly what the experiment is and how it can help his friends and his sister, he agrees to be a living guinea pig. He hopes that even if he doesn’t survive, the knowledge learned will save others in the Human Alliance with the chip in their brain.  Now, Bowen has a definite time table – 2 weeks, after which he will either have the rest of his life or have no life at all.

 

As Bowen is going through the stages of the experiment, he learns a lot about the BlackSea and especially about Kaia.  Kaia is trying to ignore what Bowen is to her, but the more she gets to know him the more what she believes about Bowen just doesn’t make sense.  Both Bowen and Kaia initially try to denythe feelings between them but you know some things  can’t be ignored.  However, all isn’t just science and passion; when Bowen learns that he is a suspect in the death of a really good friend of Kaia’s he demands to try and learn just what happened and how his name was brought into it.  Kaia and Bowen start putting the pieces of the puzzle together while their passion flames higher and higher.  It seems that the BlackSea traitor is closer than anyone ever expected and when the name becomes clear, all are in disbelief.  Time is not on Kaia and Bowen’s side, because soon it’s time for Bowen to take the last steps that will either save every human with a chip or end any future that Kaia and Bowen might have together.  There are huge questions that will also need answering if Bowen comes out of this, like how to combine their worlds in a way that will keep both happy.

 

An ex lab assistant turned cook extraordinaire and a determined security chief find a love that defeats all  odds in Ocean Light.  I was very excited when I learned that Bowen was the next hero and couldn’t imagine who would be his mate, but Kaia was more than his match.  I loved how at first Kaia tried to deny that Bowen was her mate. Bowen was intrigued by the sexy Kaia but didn’t want to start anything when he knew the true odds of his surviving the experiment on his brain.  Even better was watching how they took each careful step towards the love that exploded between them.  I also enjoyed how the mystery on who was selling out the members of BlackSea and other things were puzzled out and that the endings to each suited those individuals.  Come on now, you didn’t really think I was going to tell you everything did you?  What I will tell you is that Ocean Light is an excellent second book in the Trinity series and one that no one should miss if they have loved any of the Psy/Changeling books.  I can also tell you Ocean Light is Joyfully Recommended by me to you as a must read!

Virginia Troy is the owner of an art gallery in Seattle.  When one of her artists turns up dead, Virginia has a good reason to believe that it was murder.  Virginia is one of the few survivors of a cult that was destroyed when she was a child, and the missing author was one of her mother’s few friends with in the cult.  Virginia knows she can’t take her suspicions to just anyone; but Anson Salinas, the man who helped save the children from the fire, happens to be a partner in a private investigation firm.  He is the one person Virginia knows she can hire that will take her seriously.

 

Cabot Sutter is one of the surviving children from the cult who was adopted by Anson.  He is also one of the main investigators in the firm.  When Virginia shows up with her concerns and wants to hire the firm to find out exactly what happened when the artist was killed, Cabot is assigned to the case.  Cabot and Virginia certainly have some past history in having lived in and survived the cult.  As a result, both are wary in letting anyone get too close, yet they quickly become a firm partnership as they start to follow the clues and every lead to find out not only  what happened the night an artist fell off a cliff, but also just what exactly happened the night the fire destroyed the cult compound.

 

Quinton Zane was the cult leader who decided to try and kill all of his followers when the law came down on him.  During the events of the evening, it was unsure if the cult leader had been killed somehow or if he got away when it was all over.   As Cabot and Virginia begin getting a few answers, they begin to suspect that Quinton got away and still lives.  The danger multiplies as more answers are located and, even as each turn seems to bring even more danger, Virginia and Cabot also discover that some of the sparks are actually coming from them.  It seems that romance doesn’t care what is going on around you when love is meant to be.  The final answers prove Virginia was right, and yet it is a surprise on who was actually behind everything.  The question is: Is all the horror of the cult and its ending finally, over or is there more out there to be discovered and ended?

 

Scars on the inside can be much more harming than those on the outside as both Cabot and Virginia learned growing up as survivors of a cult that went out in a deadly blaze in Promise Not To Tell.  I really loved how Virginia and Cabot forged forward even when the outcome brought out things they really didn’t want to think about again.  I also enjoyed trying to figure out the clues as I read along during their adventures.  I was surprised at how well Cabot and Virginia matched up once their attraction was undeniable.  At first, I was sure they were just too far apart, even with the shared background.  If you love a great suspense, then you can’t miss with giving Promise Not To Tell a read.  While not a series, one of Cabot’s other adopted brothers is the hero of When All The Girls Have Gone.

Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Contemporary


 

When Alexa Moore finds herself trapped in an elevator with Drew Nichols, she never thought she’d end up being his date to the wedding of his ex and one of his best friends. Drew can’t believe that Alexa has saved his bacon by agreeing to be his date to this wedding. It’s not that he still has feelings for the bride, it’s that he knows if he goes without a date, everyone will assume he does and he doesn’t want to do anything to ruin the day. But spending the day with Alexa just intrigues him and the night that follows just makes him want more. What was supposed to be an easy date turns into a long-distance relationship trying to see each other on the weekends. But the more they see of each other, the more they want to be together. Can a long-distance relationship turn into forever?

 

I adored The Wedding Date!!! From the moment Alexa and Drew started flirting in the elevator I was hooked. And when they started their long-distance relationship, I was drawn into their story even more. I’ve never had the pleasure of reading Jasmine Guillroy and I’ve been missing out! I love finding a new author so I was given a double treat, a story I loved and a new author to read!

JUDGEMENT ROAD by Christine FeehanJudgement Road by Christine Feehan
Series: Torpedo Inc. #1
Published by Berkley Publishing Group Genres: Suspense


An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

A brutal education in a Russian training facility for assassins has taught this group of men one thing:

It's a long road to redemption.

JUDGMENT ROAD

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He's a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can't afford--until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin...

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she's desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper's imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya's touch is everything Reaper doesn't want--and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club--his heart and his soul.

Reaper is the enforcer for Torpedo Inc. MC in Sea Haven. Anya is a homeless bartender hiding secrets that could cost her everything.

Christine Feehan’s Judgement Road is much more than your normal MC drama.  Reaper and Anya’s love story is a tortured one.  Judgement Road will take you on an incendiary journey into the dangerous world of outlaw Motorcycle Clubs, but it is the romance that keep you on the edge-of-your-seat.

Reaper suffered incredible horrors growing up.  Some parts of his history are devastating.  Anya is the perfect woman to soothe his wounded soul if he will let her. I felt deeply for these two.  I liked the fact that Ms. Feehan didn’t take the easy road with Reaper and Anya.  We must accept that certain problems cannot be instantly fixed.  Ms. Feehan’s characters needed to fight for their happily ever after and they most certainly did.  Reaper and Anya’s love story is smoldering!

Judgement Road’s excellent emotional arc pairs well with the intense suspense plot.  If you are a fan of Feehan’s other novels set in Sea Haven you will enjoy the addition of Torpedo Inc’s fiery brothers. The outlaws of Torpedo Inc. are fierce characters with fascinating personalities.  I look forward to discovering more about them in the next Torpedo Inc. novel.
