Nalini Singh--Archangel's Storm (Guild Hunter Series #5)

Genre: Paranormal Romance

With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.

Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.

With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.

{4 stars}
I love this series, it has a very original and ever changing storyline on angels and vampires. It took me a couple of tries to get hooked into this particular one. But once it got going, the story just flowed. You can't help but be attracted to the quiet, damaged Jason. And Mahiya has had just as damaged a past as Jason, but somehow still manages to smile and brighten his world. I think that's what draws Jason to her, she can still find some small hope of happiness in her world. She is not a weak or clingy character, and makes Jason smile despite his brooding nature. He doesn't know how to love, but yet, he finds himself needing her, missing her. She knows she can not truly tame this wild creature, but somehow manages to find a crack in his stone facade and charm him. All of this is happening while Jason is trying to find the murdered of Eris, Neha's consort. The true murderer, for me, was easy to guess. But that part of the story was a secondary aspect,  just the stage that brought Mahiya and Jason together. I look forward to reading more about them.
