|Jason is .a spymaster, an angel and one of Raphaels
Seven. Very good at remaining unnoticed, he has the ability to merge into shadows.
Flashbacks to a tragic event in his past help you understand why he doesnt trust
easily and is remote. The daughter of Nivriti (Nehas sister) and Eris, Mahiya was
raised by Neha, the Archangel of India, who saw her as a constant reminder of her
husbands betrayal. Used as a whipping boy for centuries, Mahiya has remained strong
and managed to fool everyone into underestimating her. Now Eris is dead, Neha has no need
to keep her alive to torment him with her presence.
This book takes place directly after
Archangels Blade and it is at the wedding of Dmitri and Honor that
Jason discovers that there has been a murder. Eris, the Consort of Neha - Archangel of
India, has been savagely murdered. Jason is asked by Neha to investigate - as long as he
swears a blood bond to her first. The only available person is Mahiya. Stuck with each
other, they begin to investigate Eriss murder, and then more bodies turn up. Along
the way, Jason discovers Mahiya has an incredible strength of character, as well as plans
of her own..........
A real who-dunnit with lots of steamy scenes, this is an exciting read with strong
characters. We also get to follow Dmitri and Honor as she is made. Not my favourite in the
Archangel series, which may have something to do with Neha being the Queen of Poisons and
snakes are everywhere, this book is an interesting read.
