FIRST TIME IN PRINT

Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) returns to an immortal world of violent passion and lethal power…on the brink of a deadly archangelic war.

Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.

Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.

Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…

★ 09/30/2013
The Archangel Raphael and his consort, Guild Hunter and newly made angel Elena, take center stage in Nalini’s intense, vivid, and sexually charged sixth Guild Hunter novel (after Archangel’s Storm). The Cascade is in full force, heightening power—and possibly causing madness—among the Cadre of Archangels who rule the world. When hundreds of Raphael’s angels are injured during the Falling, an event that causes birds and angels alike to fall from the sky, and a virus begins to kill vampires, Raphael and Elena realize Manhattan will soon be undermanned and under siege. As Raphael’s powers change, he fears for his sanity. While remaining a Guild Hunter, Elena helps her husband forge alliances and keep the city calm, even as she worries that she is a liability to him, though a bigger concern is that Raphael may turn into a monster, should the “cold power” overtake him. The thrilling final battle will keep readers riveted as Singh pulls out all the stops. (Nov.)

HJ Top Pick! In Archangel's Legion (Guild Hunter #6) by Nalini Singh, Archangel Raphael has been alive for eons and is the protector who rules over what is now known as New York. Having only recently found his soul mate, his consort Elena Deveraux, Raphael is slowly learning how powerful love can be. Theirs is a fierce love with an intense bond formed between them, which ultimately is feared by some and celebrated by others. Their bond could prove to be the link that helps him save his city from an unknown attacker when angels begin to fall from the sky. The Falling, as it comes to be known, lasted for less than ten minutes, but took precious lives and injured many. Raphael is unsure if the event is due to the first Cascade in centuries, a shift in power and Archangel's abilities,or if it is a direct threat aimed at him. He has noticed changes in himself already as he grows stronger and his powers begin to change with each strange event. Raphael feels a coldness and distance building within him but he can feel also feel the depth of power he could have if he allows it to take hold. Elena is the anchor that keeps him from giving in to the darkness and instead, holding on to the bit of humanity she brought into his life. Guild Hunter Elena Deveraux is still getting accustomed to her growing power as a new immortal and in becoming Raphael's consort. She wouldn't have believed just a few years ago that she would be the mate of an Archangel but she cannot deny the power of the love between them. With her beloved Manhattan potentially under attack, Elena is torn between her instinct to fight against their enemy, and her fear of losing Raphael to the dark power trying to take him over. She strikes to find a balance between her hunter-born ways and her position of being consort to an Archangel. Their world gets turned upside down as they search for answers to the strange threats against angels and vampires. Elena digs deep to find the courage to move forward in the face of danger, knowing it may not be quite enough to overthrow the evil they are battling. Together Raphael and Elena must figure out which Archangel is behind the attacks and which can be trusted as an ally. The immortals of New York and beyond are called upon to join forces and wage a battle that may end with much bloodshed. But will there be enough time and manpower to defeat those that are using their power to enslave mortals for their own personal gain? Nalini Singh has written an epic, complex story full of love, complicated emotions and painful lessons. Lush with incredible details, there are moments of passion and of humor, as well as philosophical discussions and strategies of war. There are a lot of secondary characters to this story which would perhaps make it a bit hard to follow if you haven't entered the Guild Hunter world before, but it is possible to enjoy as a stand alone if you just keep reading and be a bit patient learning the intricacies. I fell in love all over again with Elena and Raphael. Elena is so fierce and strong...all badass and full of sarcasm but protective of those she loves. Raphael is absolutely powerful. He loves Elena as he has no other before and he watches over his people with a keen eye to keep them safe at all costs. I seriously can't recommend this book enough. If you love paranormal romance that whisks you away to another world, look no further than Archangel's Legion.

Another enjoyable Guild Hunter book.

Once again Ms. Singh has written a excellent story. I have read all her Psy/Changeling & Guild Hunter series & quality is outstanding. I would recommend that you read the other books in this series before this one or at least the 1st 3 which center on Elena & Raphael's story.

Woo hoo! Another book that brings us back to Raphael and Elena. I was seriously stoked about this installment and I am pretty sure I devoured it in two sittings. The Good: It’s about Raphael and Elena! More emotional scenes about their devotion to each other as well as their people and more upon more about the world of the Cadre, angels, vampires and Guild Hunters. Every single book so far has enhanced this amazing world and it’s a testament to Nalini Singh’s talent that I keep craving more! Of course, the very best part was the growth and flaws in the relationship with Raphael and Elena that make it much more real to the reader. The Bad: Honestly, I want more. I want to know more about Raphael and Elena. The fact that he is so old and powerful and the world is on the eve of destruction half the time leads one to want more, demand more, and I don’t know a single reader who wants to wait for the next book! 5 stars!

Another great read in the guild series

I LOVE this series! Raphael and Elena are the hottest thing since sliced bread! The love story Ms. Singh has created with this couple is amazing! Their powers are growing, as is their love for each other. If you have not read anything in this series, I have only one warning. These books are HOT. By HOT, I mean Ms Singh has a way with a "love scene" that will have anyone blushing! Definitely NOT for the young reader. That being said, I would recommend starting with the first book, Angel's Blood. This is a great series! If you love Angel's and romance, a great Alpha male, and an even better strong female vampire huntress, this is the series for you. You could read this as a stand alone, but you would miss out on soooooo much of the story line if you did. To those who have read the others in the series, this is an absolutely superb installment to the series! To the wonderful Nalini Singh, thank you for giving me another love-filled, action packed, sleepless night. I love this series and cannot wait to see what you have in stoer for us next! Please don't make me wait long!

I have read all the rest of this series so far and found this one was my least favorite. The plot was intense in the beginning of the book with a problem in the Angel world and then just fizzled out to have another insistent arise and be throughout the rest of the book. There was a lot of war involved that I did not care for. Raphael and Elena were hot and heavy as usual but I found this book not as likable as the rest.
