From Goodreads: “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.”
It’s hard to describe what is so good about this series. Elena kicks butt. Raphael is a dreamy alpha. The supporting characters are superbly written. Everything just works.
Why does this installment get only 4/5 stars? Well, I tend to like my Paranormal Romances to be more like Urban Fantasies. This one was a little too heavy on the PNR. It almost seemed that the story was written around the sex scenes. I need the story to take center stage and, sadly, it didn’t here.
But it’s impossible to give this less than 4 stars. The writing is impeccable, the characters are relatable and it leaves you wanting more.
Highly recommended but be prepared for a lot of lovin’.
