Anyway, enough talking about me, let's focus on the masterpiece.
"Archangel's Kiss" takes place in the Refuge, a beautiful city made for the angels to live in, where their young are kept and given knowledge. The descriptions of the Refuge were stunning, leaving me breathless.
Elena and Raphael
Their relationship evolves so much! It's lovely to see them share their nightmares and talk about their families. We get lots of details about the deaths of Elena's sisters (Ariel and Mirabelle) and her mother, Marguerite and Slater Patalis, the one responsible for the bloodshed in her childhood house. Also, Raphael tells his mate about his mother and father, something he hadn't discussed with anyone in eons.
Oh, right, and let's not forget the smexy action! Very ... interesting. Okay, now that's a big understatement, but I'll say no more.
We finally get to know all of them! Venom, Illium, Dmitri, Aodhan, Jason, Galen and Naasir are the seven angels and vampires who protect the Archangel Raphael with their lives, and there are many who are not so fond of Elena. Illium is just great; I already love him - he makes Raphael really, really jealous (knives and sheaths, hahahah), and he's hot when he's jealous ;). I definitely want to know more about Jason and Aodhan and what makes them act the way they do. I know Jason has his own book coming up, "Archangel's Storm", and I hope Aodhan has one too, along with Illium, the poor loner.
There's Zhou Lijuan and her reborn, obviously - as mentioned in the previous book - and there's an aspiring archangel doing wicked deeds around the Refuge and threatening Elena's life. Being the first known angel Made, she's a rarity and a flashy red target for anyone willing to try and hit it. There's quite a lot of thrill here...
I'm looking forward to getting my hands on "Archangel's Consort", since I heard it's got juicy jealousy scenes - Illium, Illium, Illium! - and lots of love too. Thank's to my shitty policy, that'll be only around Christmas time, probably.
Read this series, I promise you won't regret it!
