Archangel's Kiss Paperback
by Nalini Singh
Part of the The Guild Hunter Series series
Welcome to a dark new world where lethal, beautiful archangels hold sway over immortals and mortals both, with the Guild Hunters caught in between, tasked with retrieving those vampires who break their contracts with their angelic masters. Elena Deveraux is a Guild Hunter. She was hired to do the impossible - to hunt down a rogue Archangel - and she suceeded where none had believed she could.
But in the process, she fell in love. And not just with anyone: with the Archangel Raphael.
It is a love that's as powerful, entrancing and incredible as it is terrifying, and dangerous. But the world won't stand still while Elena and Raphael enjoy their new-found love.
Vampires and angels still go rogue, and it's still Elena's job to hunt them down, and return them to their angelic masters.
For all that she is exceptional, Elena isn't invulnerable - and the more obvious her talents become, the bigger a target she could find herself ...

Book 2 in the Guild Hunter series by New Zealand author Nalini Singh. After the fight with Uram, vampire hunter Elena and Archangel Raphael almost died. Elena has woken from a year-long coma to find that she has become an angel. Raphael takes her to the angel's Refuge, where she heals and is trained to use her new body. Raphael has become weaker through his love for Elena. He must ready her for a flight to Beijing, to attend a ball thrown by the archangel Lijuan whose power lies with the dead.

Elena wakes up after a year in a coma, healing, changing, she's now an Angel with wings but she has to learn how to be in her body and deal with murderous angelic politics. She also has to deal with some of the past dredged up by the change, things that she had forgotten, there are also echoes left at the end that suggest she has more thing she will have to face up to.It's interesting to see the interaction of people with power, learning to deal with their limits and to to cope with relationships that mean different things to different people. I like that Elena keeps asserting her individuality, her selfhood while still acknowledging that she has to accept help from others.I wasn't bowled over by this but I found it quite readable and interesting and look forward to see how the characters change and progress.
