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...
So What Did I Think Of Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh?
Great World Building & Excitement
Such great world building, the story was exciting and filled with action, suspense and danger. The intense exciting adventure was what really brought out the story. Told in third person multi-character POV I got different depths of the story that really moved the things along. The relationships showcased in the story was really great, very diverse, dynamic, filled with emotion and depth.
Really Complex Characters
Such complex, kickass, interesting characters and crazy villains. Multiple interesting diverse characters besides Naasir and Andromeda with deep history and challenge. Yeah they were defiantly formidable. Naasir was bold, wild and passionate. I was completely feeling him and was excited to see him fall in love. With his complicated past I was excited getting to know him more and he didn’t disappoint. Loved his openness and honesty.
Now even though Andromeda at first seemed shy and reserved, so different from Naasir, it was great to see that she held her own against him and all of the powerful characters they knew. She was strong, smart and I really liked that she had different sides to her. She was a scholar holding knowledge sacred but was a kickass warrior as well. She had a great balance of vulnerability and strength and wasn’t afraid to stand up to the most dangerous villain that they faced.
Slow Burn Opposites Attract Romance
Andromeda and Naasir had a sizzling slow burn romance filled with strong sexual tension. Their relationship had an instant connection from the beginning but what I really, really enjoyed was how it built over time into a strong connection. When they finally came together they really sizzled.
Overall with the sizzling romance, exciting drama and complex characters I ended up really enjoying reading Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh.
