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.
