Life

Clayne had his check up with his Renal consultant for his kidneys.  Clayne is growing and developing amazingly and the doctor was impressed.  Only concern now is he is developing kidney disease.  The future is unknown with how bad his kidneys could get but at the moment we just need to keep checking.  He is such a strong little boy, and so happy.  Watching him giggle and smile this week just makes me so happy.

Archangel’s Prophecy Review.

 My Review

Goodreads – Archangel’s Prophecy
Genre: Fantasy, paranormal, Romance.
Pages: 372
Published: October 30th

Eeek!! the time has come to review this AMAZING book.  I read it in a day, and oh my god.  That’s all I can say.
I don’t think I can wait until 2019 for the next one.

The book jumps back into the lives of both Elena and Raphael.
Elena is Raphael’s consort, but trained hunter who still works with the Guild, alongside her best friend Sara.

Elena is one kick ass Heroine in all the books she features in, hence Raphael’s attraction to her from the beginning.
Raphael is a powerful Archangel in charge of New York City, he begins to grow with more angel fire within becoming stronger and stronger in each book, ready to fight in the Cascade.
The love between these two is undeniably strong, since she is the first angel in thousands of years turned from mortal to immortal by the kiss of ambrosia Raphael  produced.  Read the first book to see their love begin.   Elena makes Raphael that little bit more mortal at heart.

In the beginning Elena’s vampire brother in law is attacked, left close to death, which also threatens her sister and niece.  The story follows Elena tracking down the culprit and uncovering dark truths, as well as battling her own fears of weakening.

Elena begins to hear an ancient voice in her head, over and over again telling her of a prophecy.  A part of the Prophecy is an immortal must die…..
“You must for the other to live”.  But of course Elena is not having any of that, she makes her future with Raphael, the Cascade will not control them.
Owls begin to appear to only her, lint starts to grow from her skin, the legion state the pain she is feeling will not kill her but be part of her “Becoming”.

Her wings become weaker, she loses weight at an incredible rate, and her rate of healing becomes like that of a mortal.  The healers are baffled and so is Raphael.  Raphael is furious and worried, for him there is no world without Elena if she dies, he would give into the darkness and fall within himself if anything happened to her.
He just makes me swoon every time he tells her “Elena mine”, or “Hunter – mine”.

But the real heart wrenching part of this book is 3/4 of the way through.  Probably the first time in a long time I have cried in a book.  This is when the book really changes and the fate of these two becomes unsure.

Since reading reviews from others who received an ARC, the ending has been a widely debated topic.  Everyone was going on about a cliffhanger.  There has been mixed reviews, people refusing to read the series after the ending..  I did not find the ending a cliffhanger, but more of a genius way of Nalini Singh keeping her readers hooked for the next instalment.  I for one am so upset, confused, intrigued to see where book number 12 takes us.  Will the fight of the Cascade begin.  What happens with these two.
Once again Nalini has not disappointed.

5 Stars for this book


Book Blurb

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.

In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.


About the Author

I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his

eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.

Archangel’s Prophecy Has Arrived.

I am beyond excited to read this book.  Eek I am not going to be as fast as everyone else with a review as things at home are crazy.  But I intend to spend this week focusing on this book.  I have been waiting a whole year 🙂 some of the reviews already out are making me so excited.

Coming  30/10/18

I am so excited I cannot contain myself.  For those of you who have followed me I love this series.


Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy…

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind–and now they are failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering across the world. In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind, whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

Advance Excerpt from Archangel’s Prophecy
by Nalini Singh

(Because this excerpt is from my working draft, it’s subject to change )

Taking another breath while trying not to notice the electric prickling on her face, Elena triangulated the source of the scent to a particular cabin. She’d just stepped foot in that direction when the electricity vanished.

The birds stopped singing.

The air froze.

And the earth trembled under her feet.

She came to a halt. An unknown sound made her look up. The starlings were circling in a constant wheel as they whispered their frantic and incomprehensible warning inside her skull.

The ground jolted violently.

Bunching her wings and gritting her teeth against the renewed pulse of pain, she rose up off the shaking landscape. Cabin doors flew open below her, people spilling out like disoriented ants to run in the direction of the lawn.

The ground under the cabins began to crumble.

Elena swept down to grab a young woman who was a frightening half step ahead of the disappearing earth. Elena wasn’t strong enough to carry a full-grown adult any real distance, but she managed to haul the woman to where the other guests could grab her, then yelled at everyone
to go farther.

A scream split the air.

Elena twisted back…to see a man, his arms and legs flailing, disappear into nothingness. The ground had opened up under his feet in a rushing crash of dirt and rock. She flew toward him as fast as she could, but it was a futile effort.

Even as she reached the spot where he’d disappeared into the stygian maw of the earth, the sprawling and chillingly deep hole began to fill with a golden-red flow of magma. There was no sign of him, no sign of any of the cabins. Not even a smear of flesh or a splinter of wood.

The ground stopped shaking.

The earth stopped crumbling.

The birds danced.

Directly below Elena glowed a wound in the earth that pulsed with scalding heat.

All at once, there were no more starlings in the sunlit winter sky. Only screaming, sobbing people on the grass-heavy ground near a lava pit that shouldn’t exist…and Elena’s left wing was beginning to drag.
