Archangel’s War

Nalini Singh. Berkley, $7.99 mass market (480p) ISBN 978-0-451-49166-4
The winding 12th paranormal romance in Singh’s Guild Hunter series (after Archangel’s Prophecy), focuses on power struggles between immortal beings and does not disappoint. A magical force known as the Cascade has augmented the already formidable might of the existing Archangels, causing power surges that rouse the Ancients from their sleep. Navigating this new world order, Archangel Raphael runs the risk of being unable to control his powers and unwittingly turning his human lover, Elena, into his vessel. As the two fight through the chaos, the evil archangel Lijuan goes power-mad and sets out on an unhinged quest to reign as a goddess. To stop her, Raphael and Elena must combine their strength. Though the depiction of their devotion to each other occasionally grows overwrought and repetitive, their enhanced powers lead to epic magical fight scenes that will keep readers hooked. Singh’s twisting plot and satisfying conclusion will have paranormal romance fans tuning in for the next installment. Agent: Nephele Tempest, Knight Agency. (Oct.)

Correction: An earlier version of this review mistakenly noted that a magical force known as the Cascade roused gods and mythical beasts from their sleep. In fact, only Ancients were roused.
