    Synopsis (from Goodreads): 
    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find that she has become an angel-and that her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, likes having her under his control. But almost immediately, Raphael must ready Elena for a flight to Beijing, to attend a ball thrown by the archangel Lijuan. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan's power lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena...


         Archangel's Kiss is the second book in Guild Hunter series and I feared that I won't like it as much as the first. I did like this book but I didn't feel that spark in it. 

         This books starts with an invitation to a welcoming ball which Lijuan (Archangel of China) is throwing for Elena. In Angel's Blood, Elena is turned into an angel by Raphael, therefore making her the only Made angel in centuries. Most part of this book is set in Refuge (a place for angels/archangels) where Elena recover from the changes and becomes stronger. The relationship between Elena and Raphael was difficult at times but they balanced each other really well. I was glad that Elena knew she was weak and didn't question or argued with Raphael when he made certain decisions. Both of them had their own demons to face, and in the end, the trust kept them together.

         We get to meet Raphael's Seven, his most trustworthy people, which includes Dmitri, Venom, Aodhan, Galen, Nassir, Illium, and Jason. All of them are so unique, and interesting. I'm really excited about every single one of theirs book, specially Aodhan.

         Nalini Singh's writing is very simple, and beautiful. There is a lot of sexual tension which keeps you at your toes, but the end result is mind-blowing. The only complain is that there is a built-up in the story leading to the ball which was stretched so much, and then it was just over. I didn't ever know what happened in the end, and had to reread that part again. Simply putting, the ending was rushed and confusing. I hope it never happens again.  

         Overall it is a really good book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is willing to give it a try. This is an amazing series, and I will continue reading it.
