Archangel's Blade

I've turned in Archangel's Blade! I loved seeing beneath the surface of Dmitri, dark, dangerous creature that he is, and learning about the (fascinating) woman strong enough to take him on. I can't wait to share their story with you all!

For now, here's the backcover blurb! Excerpt to come a little later.

ARCHANGEL'S BLADE
September 2011
Berkley Sensation

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh is back in the shadows of a deadly, beautiful world where angels rule, vampires serve, and one female hunter must crawl out of the darkness to survive…

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…

kaleigha said...

Well, hell. That means that I can get my hot little hands on Dmitri AND Zacarius in Dark Predator on the same freakin day. That may just be too much testosterone overload for me.

Seriously, I just can´t wait til September!!!!
.....will we get to read more about Ellie and Raphael,too?

Dmitri is my favorite seven and I can't wait to read his book. I practically have/create his story on my head now that his HEA has a name. I bookmark al his appearance on the three guild hunters books in my ibooks hehe.

Honestly I wanted to see how Nalini will wrote Dmitri since he's far too different in any male hero Nalini wrote. I tried re reading her other works, but can't find any of her heroes that resembles Dmitri's attitude. Arghh I just hope I won't get disappointed (Which I never had FYI) and Dmitri won't lose what makes him special.

Also can't wait what Elena would say/think now that Dmitri's in love hehe. I just hope Honor will have a backbone just like Elena. Since Dmitri seems like a guy who likes pain..

Lynn said...

Wasn't Honor seen at the academy when Elly took her sister? I don't think she was mentioned by name but passed in the hall?

Nancy Perennec Doll Artist said...

Can't wait to get my eyes on it. Archangels Consort inspired me to try to sculpt Elena and Raphael has become my entry into the traveling doll project. Can't wait to see how he turns out! I may have to just follow up with a Dmitri Art Doll too!

Dawn said...

Can't wait to read this one. After three books about Elena and Raphael, a book about Dmitri will give this great series an added dimension. What will Dmitri be like when seen through the eyes of someone deeply attracted to him? Please write Illium's story - love him.

jenn-randomthoughts said...

i still want a continuation on elena and raphael.. i special ordered your books abroad because they are not available where i'm staying

Mimi said...

i just cant wait! wake me up when September comes!

Maggie said...

Lordy! Just re-reading the series and decided to snoop around and find out more about Dmitri. And I did!
I can't wait for Illium, Venom, Galen, Aodhan, Jason and the others.
And maybe a revisit of Ash and her Cajun :D

mila said...
