Waiting on Wednesday: Archangel's Storm

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted byJill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights anticipated upcoming releases. This week my can't-wait to-read book is:

Archangel’s Storm
By Nalini Singh
Drops September 4, 2012

Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance…

With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.

Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one.  Least of all an enemy spymaster.

With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.

How am I going to wait until September for this book?  Seriously.  How?
Singh is one of the best paranormal writers out there.  Her world building is stellar, her plots are gripping, her characters intriguing, and the romance is sexy as shit.  Her books are multi-layered and uncommonly good.  Thank god her next book, Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling, #11), will be out in May so at least there's that.  But the book I can't wait to read is Archangel's Storm, the fifth book in her Guild Hunter series.  The series took a bit of a dip with the third book but the fourth book slam kicked it up to a whole new dark, dangerous, provocative level.  (And it landed a spot on my keeper shelf.)  I have high, high hopes for this book.
If you're not familiar with Singh's work, I suggest you check it out.  Either the Psy-Changeling series or the Guild Hunter series.  Both are terrific, with depths not usually found in paranormal romances.  Plus, did I mention, the books are also hot, hot, hot?  'Cause they are.

    @ Book Sake: I would recommend starting with Angel's Blood, the 1st book in the Guild Hunter series or with Slave To Sensation, Psy-Changeling, #1. Both series are super although very different. You can't go wrong with either.
