Sporadically reading the Guild Hunter series, I made my way to this title. I hadn’t given it proper care first time I read it. But now, please read on for my review of
We already know that Ashwini is extraordinairy. It was obvious from early on that she has amazing chemistry with Janvier. We knew beforehand that those two could cause chaos when they finally got together. But Ash is afraid of her past and possible future. Janvier on the other hand, isn’t ready to give up. He doesn’t accept living without his Ashblade.
Throw in a drug for immortals that causes problems, mummified corpses that keep popping and a family secret that will break your heart, and you get an awesome read that brings tears and laughs equally easy.
Bonus points for giving us more glimpses about the peopel around Elena and Raphael. Especially that moment when Naasir realised that he mattered, was a real tear – jerker!
“Don’t let immortality do that to you,” she whispered. “Don’t let it steal your soul.” Moss green eyes held her own. “It is, others tell me, far easier to stay human if you split your heart in two and give one part to another to keep.”

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s sensual and painfully beautiful Guild Hunter world in her new novel of sacrifice, loyalty, and the choices of love that can shatter the heart.
In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.
This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…
Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.
