Archangel’s Light

Nalini Singh. Berkley, $8.99 mass market (400p) ISBN 978-0-593-19814-8
Singh’s slow-burning 14th Guild Hunter paranormal romance (after Archangel’s Sun) focuses on the blossoming love between best friends—and fan favorite characters—Illium and Aodhan. China is still scarred by the evils of its former archangel, the late Lijuan. When Aodhan heads to China to serve as a potential second to Suyin, the country’s new archangel, Illium feels betrayed and abandoned, and the men’s friendship is fractured. Now, at Archangel Raphael’s instruction, Illium arrives in China to serve alongside Aodhan in transitioning the land to its new leadership. As Suyin takes their court to a new citadel, Illium and Aodhan help with the move. Proximity drives the best friends to confront their long-buried issues while investigating a hunch that Lijuan may still reign from beyond the grave. As the duo track down Lijuan’s remaining supporters and begrudgingly work to rebuild their troubled relationship, Singh teases out their will-they-won’t-they romance and masterfully balances the love story with the complex paranormal plot. Fans will be delighted. Agent: Nephele Tempest, the Knight Agency. (Nov.)
