Archangel's Kiss (Nalini Singh)

Archangel's Kiss is the second book in Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series. It is also the sequel to Angels' Blood. (Note: spoilers for Angels' Blood below):
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight. Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, is used to being in control—even when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority… They’ve barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…
You can read the excerpt here! The book is scheduled to be released in February 2010!

So, who else apart from me can't wait to read this?

Edited to add: Nalini has posted the unedited first chapter for Bonds of Justice (Max's story), to her blog!

  5. Renee/Christine - you're welcome. I stalk...I mean visit *grin*...Nalini's blog frequently, so I noticed and was so excited! And the excerpt is goooooood!

    Mariana - I agree. Three months is a long time. At least we have Blaze of Memory to look forward too :)

    Hilcia - I've just read Angels' Judgement (which was great), but I haven't read Angels' Pawn. IIRC it was only released in eBook. I have to read eBooks on my computer, which isn't fun, and so I'm thinking of buying myself a iTouch for Xmas (there are no dedicated eBook readers for sale here). Then perhaps I can finally read Angels' Pawn!

  6. Oh, Orannia, you must read Angels' Pawn! The story was wonderful (longer and I liked it more than Sarah's story, although that was good too). I hope you get that iTouch for Xmas. :)

  7. I can't wait!!!! What a wonderful world she has created. I remember reading Angels' Blood when Nalini was describing the angels arriving and departing at the tower and having such a vivid picture in my head. Love it.

  8. So noted Hilcia, and thank you! I'll be buying an iTouch for me, so if I can convince myself to spend so much money then Angels' Pawn will be my first purchase :)

    Mandi - that's one amazing image! I also have a small hankering for Dmitri...

  10. I hope the spoiler warning was enough CJ? Maybe I should have left a bigger gap? *worried* I look forward to hearing what you think of Angels' Blood when you read it :)
