Publisher's Summary

Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required - those more common to predatory animals than to man.
Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets, is fascinated by his nature - at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the sleeping archangel before it's too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows...and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare.

ANOTHER EPIC PNR.... & MUCH MUCH MORE

As a huge fan of Nalini Singh's works this was an auto-pre-order because I had every faith that she would deliver yet another riveting listen in this awesome, mind-blowing and ever building series. The Enigma is that yet again NS delivered because she weaved her magic and created a mesmerising plot that was filled with tension, threats, challenges, suspense, twists, turns, danger, destruction and debauchery. Then added the evil characters, the well loved characters and some new characters too to maintain the precarious balance of power that could swing and change at any moment. And built all this around a powerful, touching and sweet love story.

The story of Naasir's beginnings was heartbreaking but through it all he learned to become a beautiful soul, a protector, a warrior, a skilled tactician and, when he saw Andromeda, a loving patient mate. All of NS's romances are unpredictable and their paths were going to lead them to hostile far off lands, to imaginative battles, to pain filled challenges and they stood and fought together through physical, emotional and mental pain to become united. Even through blood oaths and vows they triumphed and together they were victorious. However, the immortal world and its inhabitants are in real danger as strange unnatural forces are coming into play...... Raphael's powers have grown, now there's 11 Archangels, there was a near deadly Ascension, 2 Ancients now walk the Earth, Territories are being threatened or lost, Archangels are choosing sides and the Cascade is gathering momentum..... which means the World is under threat. Where, oh where, will NS take us next? Wherever it is I hope it's soon.

Worth a credit? YES for the wonderful characters, YES for an incredible story, YES for all the interwoven secondary and primary plot lines, YES for the amazing narration from multiple POV's and YES, YES, YES, for the beautiful love story.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Most unforgetable couple of the year

To be honest?
I wasn't looking forward to this one. I couldn't see how Nalini Singh was going to make a delicious hero out of Nasser, the strangely animalistic one of The Seven. Was he intriguing in lead up books? Oh sure. There is no end to Ms. Singh's imagination. But I wasn't seeing it--him as leading romantic male.

But then I didn't see how she was going to make the callous manipulative Dmitri a leading hero, and now he perches at the top of my best-hero-of-all-time of 700 books. And now? Nasser is up there too.
So Ms. Singh has done it again. Its really a great story, fascinating character development that builds over the course of the book, and what I really enjoyed was the determined courtship and the receptive female--none of the usual weird contrived reasons she couldn't go for him. Yet--you have to really wait for Nasser to go back in time to find the missing key to unlock his mate, so you get the delicious slow build they've both been dying for. Its really a wonderful tale.

AND amidst this fabulous romance, we get more intense plot development about the awakening archangels, and yet another white knuckle battle with the incalculably evil Li Juan. I really thought that plot line was on an ending arc, but turns out Ms. Singh's got lots in store for us, a couple new magnificent characters and some shocking new developments with Aiden and "Bluebell" Ilyum (sp?). I've been most curious to see how The Legion and the Primary would develop out, but she's keeping us dangling.

This is not a book to jump into if you are new to the series. In this fantasy/romance genre this is one of the best series out there. You will not regret starting at the beginning.

A++ for both Nalini Singh and Justine Eyre.
