Demon Angel by Meljean Brook

The play on demons, angels and much of the Christian faith worked so well. The use of Lilith, Lucifer and Michael to create a great paranormal world over top of our own gave the strength of millennia to the battles and moments which help to form Lilith and Hugh’s relationship in the first part of this novel. The second part of this slightly builds upon the mythos used to create this world, but also furthers the relationship to and great understanding of the characters throughout.

Blind Spot by Meljean Brook

So this didn’t turn out the way I expected. I expected the love interest of course… everything in the Must Love Hellhounds collection has a romantic entanglement of some kind (actually, almost everything you read does). But the guy wasn’t anything like what I expected. The journey they go on didn’t have the usual push and pull – they were both instantly attracted, but rather than having hang ups on getting together, they just couldn’t act on it.

Falling for Anthony by Meljean Brook

This was nothing like what I expected. The first The Guardians story that I read was the novella Blind Spot and I absolutely loved the intersection of angels, vampires, romance and hellhounds. So I decided that this was a series that I just had to have. And I’m so glad that I made that decision. Even though Falling for Anthony wasn’t what I was expecting, more Victorian romance than contemporary as I was expecting, it was still so very, very good.

Angels’ Blood by Nalini Singh

I loved Singh’sPsy-Changeling series. So when I realised that she had a series about vampires and vampire hunters. And angels? I was fascinated. Although I read the three novellas that fit in before the occurrences of Angels’ Blood, I was still incredibly confused about how this world works. And although this story answers so many questions, so many, many more were raised. Which is kind of how a good book should be.

Angels’ Pawn by Nalini Singh

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.

Angels’ Judgment by Nalini Singh

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.

Angels’ Dance by Nalini Singh

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…

A Good Bargain by Christina Henry

Everyone loves a good bargain. And, although I can’t imagine what it is like to go shopping at a Walmart or some such shop, it was still quite amusing reading about Maddie’s (once again) chaotic experience of shopping. The appearance of Lucifer, and Beezle’s snappy comments just helped to increase the enjoyable feeling of mayhem that I know I experience when I have to go to the shops.

Night Out by Christina Henry

It’s kind of difficult to find the time, not to mention the money to spend a night out on the town. And I don’t have supernatural duties and forces to contend with. Maddie and Beezle’s night on the town, although it had a happy ending had the same catastrophic, chaotic style that well, all of her stories do. It made me feel a lot better about my own hermit-like existence at times…

Aren’t You Glad You Didn’t Turn on the Lights? by Christina Henry

In hindsight, this isn’t really the type of story you should be reading while you are in the middle of nowhere, doing fieldwork at 3am… The title alone kind of shows that. Regardless, I actually thoroughly enjoyed these five pages of slight terror that I felt in my tiny, accessible cabin on reserve. I just didn’t so much enjoy it when I decided to turn out the lights…
