Review of Archangel's Blade

 The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more...

The Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh, is a favorite of mine.  When I saw this coming out, I got excited because Dimitri has always fascinated me.  When I saw it at the store, I bought it that day!  I read it in about three days.  Literally could not put it down.  This is how I am with all her books in this series! 

Dimitri is a haunted man.  He's almost a thousand years old, and still loves his wife and children who were killed many years ago.  He's fought to keep their memories from coming into his mind, but after meeting Honor, they can't stay at bay.  She is haunted, but for a very different, very tragic reason.  She had been kidnapped and held hostage for two months by a group of vampires.  Dimitri assists her in getting vengence against the ones who hurt her.

At the same time, Honor is assisting him in solving a case of a vampire killed at the beginning of the book.  In doing this, Dimitri finds out someone is trying to raise the angel who had Made him.  The angel responsible for killing his family; the angel who he had killed. 

By working together, Dimitri helps Honor gets over her terror of vampires, and she helps him find love again.  Filled with suspense, and romance, I was so happy I bought it!  I would have loved to see more of Elena and Raphael, but it wasn't their story.  It was Dimitri's, and it was amazing.  It makes you see there's more to him then meets the eye.
