Granted there were some aspects of the plot that bothered me and I would try to get my head around, but I very quickly would say "I don't care" and just kept on reading. Nalini's language is a little coarser in this one than with the Psi/Changeling series, which might be an issue for some readers. She really is great at creating that feeling of longing for another person at every single level, whether it's physical or emotional. All of her female characters are are very strong and have a definite point of view. But I like the emotionality of her characters in this book. While I have started the second one I have only just started it. So far many of the questions I had in the first one have been answered. Jan has finished the the second book Archangel's Kiss and says that it's just as good as the first. If you decide on reading this I would love to hear what you thought of it.First off I am going to tell you that literary fiction readers would probably thumb their nose at this book. Having said that, I could not put the book down. It has been a long time since I have wanted to stay up late or get up early to read a book. I decided to try this series of Nalini's because I really enjoyed her Psi/Changeling series and I needed a break from that. When I first picked the book up I wasn't sure about the premise of angels, vampires and vampire hunters. But within a few pages I was hooked. I realized right away that the vampire hunters are not destroyers of vampires but catch them and return them to the angel who "Made" them. At this point I realized that it would be nothing like Laurell K Hamiton's Anita Blake.
