Archangel's Consort: Backcover Blurb

Here's the full backcover blurb for Archangel's Consort. Do not read if you haven't read the first two books. Really. I mean it.

Okay...if you're sure....

*
*
*
*

Nalini Singh steps back into the shadows of her “heartbreakingly original”* world where angels rule, vampires serve, and the innocent can pay the greatest price of all…

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil…

A vampire has attacked a girls’ school—the assault one of sheer, vicious madness—and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders.

The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear.

An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed…

There will be a full chapter excerpt in back of Play of Passion. I'll also put it up on the website. And look, a shiny new countdown widget for Archangel's Consort in the sidebar! Feel free to repost!

p.s. Don't forget to enter the Play of Passion ARC Contest before it closes this Sunday.

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!I must confess to you that you have ruined me for other audio books. I cannot seem to listen to anything else right now except Angel's Blood and Archangel's Kiss. I love the reader, and the writing...well.......that goes without saying, and I can't wait for Archangel's Consort. I do hope that Justine Eyre will continue reading the series (I know you have no say in that, just thought I'd put it out there). And whoever did the cover artwork for Archangel's Consort is fantastic. I love their vision of Elena. It would be so cool to see one of these covers in the "making" process!!I love all of your books, but this series, like Bluebell, has made it's way into my heart!!

:O I can't wait till that one comes out. I'm glad you have Play of Passion coming out. I'm seriously in withdrawal :( Honestly, I hate waiting (oh well but that's life!). There are times where some authors tease me with their excerpts and stuff but then when I read the book, I'm highly disappointed. That, has neverrr happened with one of your books Nalini. That's why I endure the long wait :) because I know you'll give us something amazing each and every time!

emmad said...

Ohh I want bad!!!!

Ducky said...

@ Helen G. I agree with you !!!If you have not listened to the audio..........OH MY GOODNESS!!! The characters just JUMP off the page at you. I listen when I do housework , when I am home alone and it is quiet.........almost nothing better. Check it out :)

rachel445 said...

OMG! Thanks so much for posting this! I'm so excited! And reading this has made me even more anxious..

Anonymous said...

parsa said...

You sure know how to keep our interests alive... :D
I seriously have never been this excited about a book just by reading the back cover blurb. :O

Anonymous said...

I don't know which book I'm more excited for - AC or Kiss of Snow! Hawke or Raphael?! Raphael or Hawke?! (And don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to Play of Passion too.) As already expressed by others above, the wait is PURE TORTURE for both! I'm just hoping I can survive this wait right now, lol. What have you done to me, Nalini?!

Jenny Schwartzberg said...

Wow!! I was not expecting Caliane to turn up yet. The wait for this to come out is going to be agonizing!!! I'm sure Elena and Raphael will survive but I'm sure it's going to be scaaaary!

Anna said...

Elena's gonna have to kill Rafael's MOMMA?!!! Yikes! Or maybe Caliane can be rehabilitated? Who will defeat her? How will Rafael handle this? What does his mom want with him after what she did? GAHHHH!!!! Those questions won't be answered until January. The TORTURE!!! lol

Natasha said...

Gabriƫlle said...

So mummy wants her boy back, and is will to make the rivers run red with the blood of innocents to get him back. Somhow I don't think "Go back to sleep Mummy" is the answer to this one! Can't wait to read it though ;)

Princess Bumblebee said...

Oh, I cannot wait! Love it!
But, I must admitt, when I saw the number of days left till it's release, I was a little depressed. Too many!
Count down faster!

lanilani26 said...

OMG! Awesome! =D =D =D

Anonymous said...

I have an idea! You should combine both your series and have Caliane & the other crazy vamps/angels rehabilitated with Silence. ;-)

Lola said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

okay deep breath...compose self...

OMG that sounds amazing! i literally can't wait till it comes out...No im serious i can't wait please just publish it now! lol

The guild hunter series is my favorite of your series (of all series in the world really)

OMG I have goose bumps.... I can't wait.

As *Ducky* said... """I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!I must confess to you that you have ruined me for other audio books. I cannot seem to listen to anything else right now except Angel's Blood and Archangel's Kiss."""

I feel the same way. It's all I listen to, I keep repeating in my head several scenes and going over the ones I've only listened to like twice XD (compared to the hundreds of times AB's ch12, or AK's ch11, where I usually begin my "reading". =D

Caliane! I was thinking Neha, but possibly-deranged super-powerful-archangel mother-in-law is WAY better =D I wonder if Caliane would want her 'territories' back (Simeria?) or if she would just assume she rules over North America (which I think that's the extent of Raphael's territories...). Anyway, AAAAAAAHHHHH! Mommy dearest is back! I'm so excited =D =D =D

Also, I'm so happy we are going back to the wolve's den in Play of Passion and that we are staying there for Hawke's book ^___^

I love you Nalini (aslo, love your name, lol =p)!! You are awesome and make the next 6 months amazing in the reading department!

Okay, too excited, I feel silly, but super happy =D

kylie said...

Thanks also to Peppypilotgirl its nice to know you're not alone in the madness.... Is that a good thing????

Hugs,

Helen G.

marigam said...

Im hoping there will be a little down time in the beginning for Elena to build her little castle in the sky. Wait. Is Elena and Raphael gonna live together?

Cuz so far, Elena has been crashing in Raphael's bed, right? But now she's going to fix up her/another apartment and since Elena is very protective of her little "nest"(lol. how apropriate right? wings and all) where's Raphael gonna go?

I can't wait to read the little intricacies of their building relationship!

Michelle said...

I WANNAAA READDDDDDDDDDDDDD...........................................................

Michelle said...

Sorry, that was an utter breakout. Me and my whole group went crazy and started hyperventilating. You're killing us! That countdown made me go crazier. Even Play of Passion isn't out yet! I'm going to have a breakdown!!!!

Anonymous said...

OMG. Just read the blurb for Archangel's Consort. Can’t wait to read this book. Caliane coming back. Didn’t see that coming. AAAAHHH. January is too far away.

Anonymous said...

I love this series, and I can't wait for Archangels Consort to come out. Is it January yet?!?

stub blog said...

Seriously Nalini, we're not kidding about it being absolute torture waiting to rd the books in your series. We're like children w/ our need for instant gratification! Just finished rdg Play of Passion & luv the Psy/Changeling series, but Guild Hunter books are my favorites! The excerpt in back of PoP was too short!!!!!! Elena & Raphael are such well-realized characters, I luv that they have their hangups- don't we all ;) But Elena is just so brave hearted & Raphael so sexy & strong they're absolutely my favorites! BTW, for you Hawke fans out there, Nalini had some pretty great scenes of him in PoP- could practically see the sweat rolling of his muscles as he was pumping iron, Mmmm
yum!
