Review: Angels of Darkness

I pickup Angels of Darkness for Nalini Singh's story for it is #4.5 in the Guild Hunter series and Ilona Andrews in one of my favorite authors so I have to read her story and she did not disappoint. Sharon Shinn is a new author for me and I will be reading more of hers now.

Tales of alpha angels...from four alpha authors.

They soar through the night, unearthly creatures of legends and lore. Four masters of urban fantasy and paranormal romance explore the rapture of the heavens above, and the darkness below in four all-new stories of angels and guardians, and good and evil.

"Angel's Wolf" by Nalini Singh is from her Guild Hunter series. Noel is one of Raphael's vampire who he reassigns to Louisanna. We met Noel in Archangel's Kiss where he was injured. He is now healed physically but not fully emotionally. The head angel Nimra needs protection from someone in her court who unsuccessfully tried to kill her. Both need to trust each other and learn to grow and heal. I really enjoyed this story eventhough none of the main characters of the Guild Hunter series is in it, only Raphael's name mentioned.

"Alphas: Origins" by Ilona Andrews is a new world where everyone seems like monsters to Karina and her daughter Emily who are taken to live with some very scary monsters. Karina is what the monsters in this world call a donor. Lucas, one of the monsters needs to feed off donors to live unfortunely for Karina. Henry and Daniel are two other monsters Karina needs to live with and ends up cooking for them.

"Nocturne" by Sharon Shinn is a good story where a too curious cook who works at the Gabriel school wants to get into the Headmistress's house where she is not aloud to go. That doesn't stop her. She knows there is an Angel in the house and she is determined to find out his story. It makes a very interesting story. (Sharon Shinn's website says it takes places 80 years after her novel Archangel which I haven't read but still enjoyed the story and didn't feel lost).
