Week 8 Reviews: Archangel's Blade, Archangel's Storm, Archangel's Legion

From Goodreads:
The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more... 

From Goodreads:
Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh's darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance…

With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha's consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.

Earning Neha's trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.

With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.

From Goodreads:
Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling "alpha author of paranormal romance" (Booklist) returns to an immortal world of violent passion and lethal power…on the brink of a deadly archangelic war.

Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.

Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael's Tower under siege by enemy archangels. 

My first review of Archangel's Blade, Archangel's Storm, Archangel's Legion
My second review of Archangel's Legion
My Review:
Yeah, I really enjoyed reading these books again! I don't know why I didn't read the members of the Seven's books again before, because they did have important events in them, like Neha's twin sister being alive and such. But it was really great to read them again!

It's funny, I know Dmitri is a Russian name, but I'd forgotten that he was from what is now Russia. And when he reacts to her pictures of where they lived, yeah, that was intense, and horrible of him, even if it was really important to him. It turns out that it was important to her, as well!

Mahiya is a character that we don't see often. This is really the only book that she's in, she's mentioned in others, but this is the only book in which she is actually on screen. I really enjoyed learning about her childhood, and growing up as the result of her father's affair with her mom. Not fun!

Archangel's Legion is a pretty important book in the series, we're back with Elena and Raphael narrating. And there's the big war with Lijuan, and yeah, that's pretty intense. We only got them for a short while in this book, but the Legion were terrifying and amazing and revealed so much yet so little! Like, they remembered the Cascade in which angels developed the venom that they now have to get rid of to make vampires-what drove Uram to bloodlust. Yeah.

Loved reading these books again, they're so freaking great, and the wait for Archangel's War is just driving me up the wall!
