“Oh, Naasir. So weird, so bloodthirsty, so unique and wonderful…I have fallen for him…”—Fiction Vixen

Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former Archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required—those more common to predatory animals than to man.
Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets is fascinated by his nature—at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the Sleeping archangel before it’s too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows…and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare…

Review:  Naasir has always been an interesting character with unique and unknown origins. He left Archangel’s Shadows having declared he was on a hunt for his mate. He finds it in a woman that on the surface, after his initial meeting with her, believes her unfit to be his mate so she isn’t. But when they spar late at night and one of her many secrets are revealed he starts to reconsider that this scholar could possibly be his mate; he just has to persuade her to give up her vow of celibacy. When she is kidnapped he rushes to her aid and their adventure to save a sleeping Archangel begins. Their story is filled with great dialogue between the two, Singh succeeds in making his mannerisms appear not quite human, and when passion finally overcomes them damn was it explosive!  That scene was intense! Their story was fun, full of adventure, near death experiences, and witty banter. The secondary characters’ aid in moving along the story rather than slowing it down. I enjoyed this one and am happy that they were able to find a way to eliminate the blood vow that forced her to leave Naasir’s side. It was beautifully done.
