I have been a fan of the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh for many years. I was exited to be able to read Archangel’s Viper as this is a Venom focused book, and Venom has been missing in the pervious books.
Holly Chang aka Sorrow life changed when she was attached and brutalised by an Archangel and turned into something not human and not Vampire. For the last four years she has been dealing with the changes in her body, from her blood lust, poisons bite, super speed and memorizing her prey.
Someone has found out how unique Holly is, and has placed a bounty on her head. With the help of one of Raphael Seven, Venom is tasked with helping Holly find out who placed the bounty on her head and to stop it.
Venom is a centuries old Vampire, who fangs dispense their own poison, and he is known for his abilities at seduction just as much as his abilities as a warrior. Venom trust in his abilities to keep Holly safe from the bounty hunters, but Venom might not be able to save Holly from the power building in herself.
When I start reading these books, I am reminded why I love this series so much. Its like finally meeting up with an old friend that you haven’t seen in years, and being able to start-up like nothing has changed.
The banter between Holly and Venom is one of my favorite elements in the book, its quick-witted banter. You can pick the book up at any point and quickly find some banter, insults or nicknames from either Holly or Venom.
We were introduced to Holly in the first book in the series (Angel’s Blood), and we been slightly updated in the other books to who Holly is dealing with the change. This is the first time that we get to see the strong and funny side of her character.
There is two plots running though the book, one being the bounty on Holly head, and Holly increase in abilities. By focusing on Holly abilities it helps answer some questions that have been floating around in the other books.
This book also takes places around the same time as Archangel’s Heart meaning that Elena is missing from this book and we have very little Raphael in it. Although I do love Elena and Raphael it was nice to see how the Seven run without them.
This books, and the other in this series are great for people that love Fanasty with Romance.
