With the launch of a second paranormal series, Singh provides incontrovertible evidence that she's an unrivaled storyteller. In this twist on vampire and angelic lore, the angels create and rule the vampires. This book should be at the top of your must-buy list! Tremendous!

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is tops at what she does because she was born with a gift for scent tracking. When a vampire goes rogue, their masters, the angels, hire vampire hunters like Elena to bag, tag and return them.

Working for angels is one thing, working for an archangel is something else entirely -- they are the most ruthlessly powerful of all. But Elena has little choice when an archangel goes on a killing spree and dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael hires her to help track one of his own. For feisty Elena, half the battle will be to keep seductive but lethal Raphael from killing her before she starts her mission! (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 364 pp., $7.99)

Angel's Blood

Submitted by Jancat on September 3, 2010 - 2:20pm.

This is a good book. I have been driven to re-read parts of it after just having finished it.

The world building is very good in this book. It gives us a new twist on how vampires are made and who makes them. Singh also gives us a different take on angels and their place in the the world.

Elena is a full of fire. She confronts a difficult situation head on and ends up in an unexpected place. She is strong and dealing with her own issues and she has the love and devotion of good friends.

Raphael is a powerful archangel that has job to do with the help of Elena, a unique hunter. Little does he know that she will turn his world upside down. She makes him feel as he has never felt before.

This is a wonderful book and a definite keeper.
