RATING: 5 JASON WITH A SIDE ORDER OF VENOM AND DMITRI STARS!

With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.

Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.

With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


“Let me stretch the wings of my heart with you.”


I so enjoy the Guild Hunter series and Archangel’s Storm could quite possibly be my favorite to date.

Why?

Jason.

You have to really pay attention to his character and note how he is written. He isn’t like Dmitri who really commands his audience, he is quieter, yet in a way just as loud.

I loved the pairing of Mahiya and Jason. They simply work so well together. Some female loves could be anybody really, but in Jason’s case, Mahiya matches his quiet, but is also loud in her own way.

I am still not sure what to think of Neha. To be ruled by the Queen of Poisons is a rather frightening thing with her temper and power. I really would rather be living in Raphael’s territory. She is very well written. The scales are always tipping with her character.

I loved seeing a bit of Dmitri and Honor woven through this instalment. I do have a rawrrrrr spot for Dmitri, but Jason is something else. He takes a lot of crafting from a writer’s point.

I love the title of this installment, it is very fitting.



Her breath caught, but she didn’t break the eye contact. “A man who is a storm, who belongs to no one and who will never be tamed. To expect otherwise would be to ask for agonizing disappointment.”




Beautifully written and I adored the ending. It was so apt for a man like Jason.

  1. The story ends cleanly, no cliffhanger. But it is clear that the major characters of this book will reappear in future books as major supporting characters for other members of Raphael’s Seven and Elena’s Guild.
