Review: Angels' Flight by Nalini Singh

Angels' Flight (Guild Hunter #.5, 1.5, 4.5, 4.75) by Nalini Singh
Synopsis (Goodreads):
In Angel’s Wolf a vampire becomes fascinated with the seductive angel who rules Louisiana. But all is not what it appears to be in her court.

In Angels’ Judgment a hunter must track one of her own gone bad, while surviving the deadly tests placed in her way by the archangels themselves. Unexpected backup comes from a stranger who might just be the most lethal threat of all...

Plus FIRST TIME IN PRINT

In Angels' Pawn a vampire hunter faces off against two rival factions and the angel manipulating them both, and a vampire whose help is not entirely selfless...

And NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED

In Angels’ Dance an angel trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge finds herself under siege by a warrior angel from a martial court.
My Thoughts: Since I am currently caught up on the Guild Hunter novels, I decided to dive into the short stories. I like these vampires and angels. They're just the right amount of dark and deadly.

0.5 Angels' Pawn: The hunting/flirting between Ash and Janvier has been mentioned several times in the last few books. I *really* liked that we finally got to see some of that in action. They were combustible without ever getting naked. The hints to Ash's past made her very intriguing and I would love to see more with these two. I can only imagine how the two of them will set the sheets on fire when they finally give in to each other.

1.5 Angels' Judgment: I LOVED Sara and Deacon together. This is another pairing that we've seen in bits and pieces across the books and it just worked. Sara and Deacon are both strong. They're both willing to bend for the other. Deacon doesn't stifle Sara and that works for her.

4.5 Angel's Wolf: I really enjoyed seeing Noel come back into his own after the horrific attack he suffered in the Refuge. Nimra is one of the rare angels who acts like a mortal and treats her court with kindness. Her power has the potential to be awful but she's not consumed by it. To be honest, the draw in this one was Noel. I liked him.

4.75 Angels' Dance: Jessamy and Galen. Probably my favorite of the bunch because we not only got a fabulous romance but we got to see many of Raphael's key players before the events in the novels. Galen's courting of Jessamy is sweet and oddly romantic considering his usual bluntness. Her sadness and her resignation over her defect made Jessamy such a lonely, lonely character. Until Galen swooped in and mucked up her solitary existence, that is.

Final thoughts: Short stories are honestly hit or miss with me. I do tend to like ones set in worlds I'm familiar with and this set was no exception. I loved seeing so many familiar faces and I LOVE the cover.
