Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors, so when I found out that she was coming out with a Guild Hunters anthology I knew I had to read this book. Although I’m not a fan of anthologies due the short stories I couldn’t pass up Angel’s Flight. In the end found that I enjoyed the book.

Angel’s Flight comprises of four short stories, Angel’s Pawn, Angel’s Judgment, Angel’s Wolf and Angel’s Dance. With each story I got a small intense glimpse of the lives of new and past characters of the Guild Hunter series and I enjoyed reentering their world. In Angel’s Pawn I enjoyed getting to know Ashwini and the seductively dangerous Janvier. I felt their story was a bit rushed but still filled with an intriguing story and a passionately beginning romance.  I would have loved to read more of their story and felt it was just the beginning to something more. I was happy to read about familiar characters in Angel’s Judgment. After reading about Sara and Deacon in past Guild Hunter novels it was great to read about how their story began. Though the story was short it felt more complete to me.

With Angel’s Wolf I didn’t really connect as I would have liked. This was the story of Guild Hunter Nimra as she navigated the dangerous world of angel’s and vampires such as her romantic interest Noel. Though their story did have passion, action and romance it didn’t capture me like the others.

The last story Angel’s Dance was my favorite out of them all. I didn’t know what to expect with this new story but Galen and Jessamy utterly captivated me. Maybe it was because they are both angels and this was the first story I read in the Guild Hunters series were the focus was two angels falling in love. Jessamy and Galen won me over by their realness and the complexities of their lives. My only problem with Angel’s Dance was that it was too short. I wanted more time with these characters and their passionate love story.

Overall Angel’s Flight was a good anthology, though I liked some stories more than others I felt it was worth the read. Nalini Singh continues to entrance me with her world and characters.
