Archangel's Lineage by Nalini Singh

Elena and Raphael return in a story of passion, family, and extraordinary immortal secrets… Out Now!

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s dangerous and beautiful world of archangels, vampires, and mortals has never faced a threat this cataclysmic…

Raphael and Elena are experiencing their first ever year of true peace. No war. No horrors of archangelic power. No nightmares given flesh. Until… the earth beneath the Refuge begins to tremble, endangering not only angelkind’s precious and fragile young, but the very place that has held their most innocent safe for eons.

Amid the chaos, Elena’s father suffers a violent heart attack that threatens to extinguish their last chance to heal the bonds between them and make sense of the ruins of their agonizing shared history.

Even as Elena battles grief, Raphael is torn from her side by the sudden disappearance of an archangel. But worse yet is to come. An Ancestor, an angel unlike any other, stirs from his Sleep to warn the Cadre of a darkness so terrible that it causes empires to fall and civilizations to vanish.

This time, even the Cadre itself may not be able to stop a ticking clock that is counting down at frightening speed…

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Archangel's Lineage is the 16th installment of the Guild Hunter series. It cannot be read as a standalone and all 15 previous novels must be read in order.

A sense of finality upon completion. A warmth that all is right in the Guild Hunter universe. I have no idea if this is the final installment, but I can't see how the series moves forward unless in a different era or focusing on different characters. The stage is set for Vivek, which I would be ecstatic to read.

Archangel's Lineage felt like old-school Guild Hunters with how Elena revisits past characters not shown often in later novels.

Time has passed since the Cascade and wars. Some peace has been found by the awake Archangels in the Cadre, but all those recent events shifted the balance. A balance that needs to be reset.

A series of natural disasters occur as Elena sits at her father's bedside. While these two events do not connect, they inspire similar emotions and mindsets.

Bittersweet wistfulness. A sense of urgency to right past wrong, heal old wounds, clear up miscommunications, and give forgiveness. A gamut of raw, real emotions.

Elena is discovering the price to no longer being mortal, as the passage of time slowly draws her family from her. Elena's younger sister is experiencing age-related issues, as they watch the youngest sisters grow into adults and have children of their own. The eldest niece and goddaughter are grown young women now. Elena and her family come full circle in the loss of their matriarch and two elder sisters, something that has ridden shotgun since the opener of book one.

Information on the ancients comes to light, which adds to the mythology of their creation and existence, as well as their place in not only the world but in time as well.

The Cadre must come together in unity with the help of an unlikely yet surprising ally.

A wonderful addition to a favorite series of mine, even if Singh overcomplicates some portions unnecessarily and adds many points of view (some only a paragraph in length) that probably lend more value versus confusion on a reread.

I had planned on a reread, but I think I'll try the audiobook version next. I'm curious to hear the series brought to life.
