Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.
Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.
Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.
Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same .

This is the sixth book in the Guild Hunter series, after all, and while the plot adds to the ongoing series’ arc, my feelings towards the characters, relationship and story developments, and the writing are pretty much the same as they’ve been since book one. Not exactly titillating review material there. But that I have and continue to enjoy each installment is why I keep coming back.
Singh’s storytelling is always solid, and she knows how to ratchet up the stakes high enough to keep you invested but not frustrated. Plus, Bluebell (or Illium, if we’re being formal about it). Oh, and now, Naasir. Two of Raphael’s Seven – his right hand men. Er, angel. Er, vampire (maybe?). One had me wrapped around his wing from the very second he appeared on the page however many books ago, while the other…let’s just say when he turned up in this one the progression of my intrigue went from zero to one hundred twenty in a blink. By his final appearance, I was exisiting in a Dude, more! stupor.
Not wanting to spoil anything is another reason for brevity, why I should have probably stuck to the original plan, and why I’m callin’ it quits here. Except, maybe, to say: If you’ve read this one, chat me up in the comments! I’m all for talking specifics.
