Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh's darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy...
Midnight and dawn, Elena's wings are unique among angelkind--and now they are failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she's regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.
Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena's very survival, violent forces are gathering across the world. In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena's mind, whispers a haunting voice that isn't her own.
This time, survival may not be possible...not even for the consort of an archangel.
Seriously, this is one you don’t want to miss! Nalini Singh’s guild hunter world is unique and unlike anything else. Angel’s rule over humans and vampires but the Archangel’s are the most powerful of all angel kind and our heroine Elena, happens to be claimed by one of them!
Archangel’s Prophecy is Pure perfection! It takes us on a hunt for a murderer who’s made the mistake of targeting Elena’s brother in law. But it’s a race against the clock when Elena’s health and immortality start taking a turn for the worst.
On top of that we have the Cascade to deal with and just when we thought a certain someone was gone, hints of a former enemy return to shake things up even more.
Archangel’s Prophecy is full of action, tension, and heart wrenching moments of intimacy. I loved how we saw more of Beth and were able to see more of Elena’s newly discovered grandparents.
But the end… can we say cliffhanger! Which I’m okay with. I like a good cliffhanger now and again but man am I chopping for the next book to find out what’s going to happen.
If you love urban fantasy and paranormal romance with well developed characters you can’t help but root for, you’ll love Archangel’s Prophecy! I can’t fault it in any way.

Taking another breath while trying not to notice the electric prickling on her face, Elena triangulated the source of the scent to a particular cabin. She’d just stepped foot in that direction when the electricity vanished.
The birds stopped singing.
The air froze.
And the earth trembled under her feet.
She came to a halt. An unknown sound made her look up. The starlings were circling in a constant wheel as they whispered their frantic and incomprehensible warning inside her skull.
The ground jolted violently.
Bunching her wings and gritting her teeth against the renewed pulse of pain, she rose up off the shaking landscape. Cabin doors flew open below her, people spilling out like disoriented ants to run in the direction of the lawn.
The ground under the cabins began to crumble.
Elena swept down to grab a young woman who was a frightening half step ahead of the disappearing earth. Elena wasn’t strong enough to carry a full-grown adult any real distance, but she managed to haul the woman to where the other guests could grab her, then yelled at everyone
to go farther.
A scream split the air.
Elena twisted back…to see a man, his arms and legs flailing, disappear into nothingness. The ground had opened up under his feet in a rushing crash of dirt and rock. She flew toward him as fast as she could, but it was a futile effort.
Even as she reached the spot where he’d disappeared into the stygian maw of the earth, the sprawling and chillingly deep hole began to fill with a golden-red flow of magma. There was no sign of him, no sign of any of the cabins. Not even a smear of flesh or a splinter of wood.
The ground stopped shaking.
The earth stopped crumbling.
The birds danced.
Directly below Elena glowed a wound in the earth that pulsed with scalding heat.
All at once, there were no more starlings in the sunlit winter sky. Only screaming, sobbing people on the grass-heavy ground near a lava pit that shouldn’t exist…and Elena’s left wing was beginning to drag.
