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.

Dangerously Fierce by Deborah Blake

I’m really glad that Blake decided to self-publish this book. As soon as I received it I was kind of frustrated, the book was so much bigger than the rest of the books in the Broken Riders series. And then I read the forward – the publishers decided not to go ahead with Alexei’s story, so Blake did instead. And, I for one, am very, very, very glad. I would have been constantly wondering what happened to the third brother and how he found his happy ending.

Silver Silence by Nalini Singh

The conclusion of the first season of the Psy-Changeling series was brilliant. It tied of arcs, but also helped to introduce new characters and changeling packs. The idea of changeling bears especially appealed to me, and Silver Silence finally introduces one of these stubborn creatures was thoroughly enjoyable. The fact that he is partnered with button down and deadly Silver Mercant from Kaleb’s domain just makes it all the better.

Allegiance of Honour by Nalini Singh

The Psy-Changeling series is one of my favourites because although you are constantly revisiting the characters that you love, each book is about a new couple. It is a new love story and each time my heart threatens to burst with the hope and joy of love. It’s also a little frustrating at times, because there are certain characters that you fall in love with, and then only get fleeting glimpses of them throughout the rest of the series. Allegiance of Honour kind of helps with this. Although the main arc of the “first season” finishes with Shards of Hope, Allegiance of Honour revisits every single couple from the series. Including those who are only in short stories and novellas.

Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

This is a great way to round out the arc of the “first” Psy-Changeling series. The Arrows start out as the bogeymen of the story, but as characters are slowly introduced, their story seems to be the epitome of Silence and the tragedies of their race. So, to finish a tale with the leader of the Arrows and his lieutenants just seemed to me to fit. It provided a happy ending for the breaking of Silence, but also hinted at many more battles to come in the future…

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…

Dangerously Divine by Deborah Blake

I read this story in a day. Which is always a good indication that it was amazing and I loved it. Alright, I’ve basically done this with each of the stories set in the Baba Yaga universe, but there was something about Dangerously Divine that I especially loved. Maybe it was the fact that although there was still the aspect of the Otherworld throughout, it didn’t have as large a place in the storyline. Something a little different to the other tales in this series. There were no journeys into the Otherworld, and, although there are gods and goddesses throughout, the fact that the entire story is based in one city with some very mortal enemies was a great change of pace.
