Rated it: 4 stars Recommend it to: UF fans and bad ass angels and vamps, with romance thrown in. It has adult scenes so I’ll have to say readers 18 and up.
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil…
A vampire has attacked a girls’ school—the assault one of sheer, vicious madness—and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders.
The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear.
An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed…
I think I liked this last installment much better than the previous two. I believe it’s the only series that has angels in them that I’ve read so far, and frankly I don’t want to get into that at this point, werewolves and vampires are almost run into the ground already. It’s said by a few, actually by one particularly nasty archangel of China, Lijuan, that Elana’s mortal heart will be the death of Raphael. Let’s just say that weakness had in the end revealed itself to be a strength and had Lijuan’s behind singeing *snickers*
