Book Review: ARCHANGEL’S WAR by NALINI SINGH

Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.

This is the twelfth book of the Guild hunter series, let’s enjoy some guild hunter goodness while we wait for the release of Archangel’s Sun this November.

SUMMARY

The world is in chaos as the power surge of the Cascade rises to a devastating crescendo. In furiously resisting its attempts to turn Elena into a vessel for Raphael’s power, Elena and her archangel are irrevocably changed . . .far beyond the prophesy of the cursed Ancient.

At the same time, violent and eerie events around the world threaten to wipe out entire populations. And in the Archangel Lijuan’s former territory, an unnatural fog weaves through the land, leaving only a bone-chilling silence in its wake. Soon it becomes clear that even the archangels are not immune to this deadly evil. This time, even the combined power of the Cadre may not be enough . . .

This war could end them all.

My heart was in my mouth at the end of Archangel’s Prophesy and I started Archangel’s War with my heart in my mouth as well. The heart in my mouth syndrome left for a few chapters but came back at the end of chapter twenty-three when the toddler fell off the roof, I could feel my own body poised to catch the child as well.

“You’re speaking of it like the Cascade is a living thing.” She chewed on her lower lip. “Though, yeah, it did keep throwing obstacles in my path when I was chasing Archer. Definitely seemed like a mind behind it.”

I said this in my review of Archangel’s Prophecy that the cascade was acting like it has a conscious reasoning and it results in the death of more than one archangel, the injury of several archangels and the rise of a new archangel (talk about a delicious story line).

I found myself laughing hard at the beginning of chapter thirteen because that is when I realised Montgomery is a kleptomaniac with a penchant for lifting valuable beautiful things that he feels aren’t being given the right appreciation.

It’s so eerie that the infection of Lijuan is from China just as the covid-19 pandemic originated from China. Am I the only one with that thought? I wonder. Well damn, Illium’s father is an archangel? And he is a dead beat dad archangel? I was expecting him to be dead not sleeping.

War was coming for more than half of the book; it seemed to be the conclusive thought to every major event in the book. And when it came, it was devastatingly spectacular in the destruction it wroth as well as the loss of the Legions who gave their power and life to Elena and Raphael.

Finally her evil creepiness was taken out; she has been a plague for most of the series. Now that she is gone I am really curious about how the rest of the series will flow since it has always been about Lijuan and her possible rein of death. This was so reverting although it took a while for me to get into it and determine how I felt about it but when I was in I was in you know? And I can’t wait for Archangel’s Sun coming in November, how will I be able to wait that long? Help please. Can Nalini release the book sooner?
