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're 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 it's too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena's very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and 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.
Oh, wow, this book was absolutely amazing! I mean, so much happened, and of course, it's a Elena and Raphael-centric book, which you know means it's going to be awesome! It is a few years after Archangel's Heart, which was so great, that Elena and her family have gotten comfortable with their new, well, not so new now, grandparents!
This book had two frames, I'd guess I'd call it. The big, series changes events with the Cascade, which is really important, and adds urgency to the other, the smaller mystery that Elena is investigating. What with Elena loosing her wings, she's on a time crunch to find and stop the bad guy before she possibly can't. Because this has never happened before, and they don't know what's going to happen. It was a very tense book!
So one very important thing is revealed in this book. Well, there were a few things, but this one was a big game changer. Like, it was a piece of information that explained things so well. It was a piece of information that changed how we looked at this. That this is why things are why they are. And it explained so much!
The ending was just so very evil! Such a cliffhanger, and it's terrifying. It's not an action or life or death one, I'll let you know so you don't get too worked up, but it's an important "change our lives" moment, and I just want to know what's going to happen next!
I just absolutely loved this book, and I'm just so darned eager for the next one!
