“Once again Singh shows why she is one of the best Urban Fantasy/PNR writers out there.”
~ Under the Covers

I wasn’t sure what to expect with Archangel’s Viper, I have been intrigued by Venom but a little uncertain about him. Especially with Sorrow aka Holly, the young woman that Elena rescues from book 1. I never got a romantic vibe between them. I was half right, I don’t think the romance itself was as strong as other books in the Guild Hunter series, however, it did work.

Holly was a great character and it’s a shame we didn’t see more of her growth through the series, I almost feel like we had a snap shot of her “before” when she was a mess after first being rescued. In this book we get the “after” once she has had time to come to terms with her new and unusual circumstances and abilities. We haven’t really seen how she got there within the previous 9 books in this series.

I’ve already briefly mentioned by initial scepticism regarding the romance, and although I didn’t think their chemistry was as good as other couples within the series, Singh still wrote a great romance. But, this series isn’t just about the romance, Singh also treats us to some action packed scenes that keep the book exciting. I also loved that we got another glimpse into the Legion. The group of kind-of angels that came to Raphael’s aid previously. I really hope we get to see more of the Legion as this series progresses.

Although this book isn’t one of my favourite books in the Guild Hunter series it was a good installment and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Once again Singh shows why she is one of the best Urban Fantasy/PNR writers out there.

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
