Thoughts

I absolutely adored this collection. It took me forever and a day to get through because I wanted to read each of the novellas in the order that they take place in the Guild Hunter series. And, honestly, since I’m a bit of a series slut, I kept picking up other series in between books. Trying to work on that habit this year…

This is definitely a collection that I’ll pick up again and again to fill my happy place in reading. It is fun and wonderful and filled with very fun romances that will make you want to pick up more and more of Singh’s books. Or at least, that’s how it all feels for me.

Many of the cute couples in this story may have a happily ever after, but the part that I love the most about their connections… it’s all about acceptance. Every relationship in this collection is about accepting one another and finding a way to create their own future. It makes the romances feel far more realistic in this story…

I love that I finally got to finish this collection! But I was also kind of sad. After all, it’s a bit of a pity that it’s all over. Now I’ll just have to dive headfirst into Archangel’s Blade

Synopsis

In Angel’s Wolf a vampire becomes fascinated with the seductive angel who rules Louisiana. But all is not what it appears to be in her court.

Thoughts

The vampire that was tortured in Archangel’s Kiss had a pretty hard run of things. And he is briefly mentioned in Archangel’s Consort. So I love that there is a novella that is just about him finding a happily ever after. It helps to tie up a few loose ends and brings a whole new angels court to the forefront.

Both Noel’s assignment and Nimra’s court and terrifying-ness are mentioned in Archangel’s Consort and it completely intrigued me and pulled me in. What a fantastic way for me to finish out the Angels’ Flight collection (it may not be the final novella in the book, but it was the final one that I read).

Noel and Nimra gave me that warming of the cockleshell heart feeling. Something about their ability to love one another warmed me up and made me smile. The fact that it’s alongside the race to find out who is trying to kill Nimra… well, that just made me happier and happier.

I may not be a cat person, but there is a total love of cats and pets in this story. They are incredibly important, and the love of pets is something I can completely understand. This whole story made me want to pick up my puppy and give them a huge hug.

5th sentence, 74th page: Stepping into the shower, Ashwini turned it to freezing.

Synopsis

In Angels’ Pawn a vampire hunter faces off against two rival factions and the angel manipulating them both, and a vampire whose help is not entirely selfless…

Thoughts

So far in the novellas there have been angels and angels, hunters and hunters in romances… but not yet a hunter and vampire relationship. And after this novella, I’m still not quite sure if this line got crossed or not. Regardless, Ashwini and Janvier make a perfectly chaotic pairing. The idea of mayhem, madness and a little bit of lust thrown in makes this a thoroughly enjoyable ride.

More than any of the other Guild Hunter stories so far, this story showed the inhumanity and depravity of the angels. Or at least, some of them. The political machinations and manoeuvrings in just this short amount of pages made my head spin a little. And although I have read the Psy-Changeling series and there is many similar moments throughout, this was far more intimidating and overwhelming. Possibly because the lead character was so much closer to the ruthlessness. And so much more afraid.

5th sentence, 74th page: “Lucy’s pregnant.”

Synopsis

In Angels’ Judgment a hunter must rack one of her own gone bad, while surviving the deadly tests placed in her way by the archangels themselves. Unexpected backup comes from a stranger who might just be the most lethal threat of all…

Thoughts

I love Sara. She is the perfect mix of tough, independent and savvy. The fact that she is due to lead a group of hunters who are just as tough, independent, and probably scary, kind of makes her a perfect lead. I love that although she starts off entirely naïve to the potential danger of her new leadership-situation, she quickly grasps the gravity of the situation and comes out swinging.

Although Sara’s independence and strength are probably my favourite things about this novella, I also love her male counterpart. Part of that might just be because I love the fact that he is called the Slayer. Which, when you have a series based on vampires and vampire hunters, can you really get a better name? The shadow man of the Guild might not seem like the perfect partner for their future leader, but somehow, in the midst of finding a murder and foiling attempts at Sara’s dethronement, they work in perfectly.

Having mentioned all of that, this novella didn’t actually have the end that I was expecting…. Which worked out beautifully for me. And left me with that great, bubbly feeling that all good stories do.

Synopsis

In Angels’ Dance an angel trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge finds herself under siege by a warrior angel from a martial court.

Thoughts

This was my introduction to the Guild Hunter series. Since I was already familiar with some of Singh’s work, I knew that her short stories and novellas always help to add to an overarching series. Thus, I began with the story that starts 400 years before the rest of the series. And, it wasn’t in anyway a mistake – I am now completely hooked into this new adventure, and just waiting on the next book to arrive…

Jessamy and Galen are the exact definitions of opposites attracting. Jessamy is seen to be an invalid, unable to leave the home of angels, and although respected, often overlooked for her injuries. Galen on the other hand is never overlooked. He is large, aggressive, and not prone to thinking about his actions and those of others in depth. Or at least, that is how they both appear on the surface. As I have discovered with Singh’s writing, nothing is as it seems and the journey to romance that is often the key thread is littered with small discoveries of a character’s history.

Although my love of this story stems primarily from the joys of a well written love story, I found this new world fascinating. Angels and archangels help to create a tale that just helps to raise the stakes as I discovered the new rules for a brand new series…
