Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo

With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.
Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.
With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.
“I’ll be home soon, princess.”
Jason story!!! :)

Before starting, let me tell you that Jason has always been a mystery to me. I couldn’t quite understand if he was a good or a bad guy. Even after finishing his own story, I still feel that there is much more to Jason than he lets on.

Raphael needs a spy inside Neha’s region to help solve the mystery surrounding the murder of Neha’s consort. Neha, of course, would be a fool to accept a spy in her region without a blood bond (a bond with someone of Neha’s line that would oblige Jason to keep the family secrets). Although Raphael is a bit hesitant about the blood bond, Jason finally accepts. But who is he going to bond with?

*drums*

Mahiya, Neha’s “niece” is just as mystery as Jason is. She’s a woman who will do anything to gain her freedom but who in the meantime remain a puppet to Neha’s plans. She follows her orders obediently and knows her place in the palace. When she first meets Jason, she thinks he’s no threat but as they begin spending more time together she begins to understand that Jason could be the man to steal her heart. For he, sees the woman behind the mask, the woman whose heart remains pure despite, living all these years with Neha.

Jason got to me. He was so different from the other males we have seen in the series. Well not that different actually. He had a rough start in life too but he’s the only one who truly knows and acknowledge where the problem lies. I was really sorry for what happened to him, especially in such a tender age.

This was a true Nalini book. I really, really loved this one. Jason and Mahiya were incredible characters. They were so alike but yet, each other had his/her own way in expressing their feelings. Since I loved this book so much, I expected their HEA to be incredible as well. They do get a HEA but to me it wasn’t an appropriate one. How can it be a HEA when one of them will be always missing?

In this book we don’t get to see much of the other characters/couples, which I think was expected since Jason is no longer in Raphael’s region and therefore can’t be in contact with all the others. I should point out though that there were many glimpses of Dmitri and Honor’s life.

In my opinion, this was the best book in the series. Maybe the romance and the action and the suspense even the drama weren’t so obvious, but that’s what kept me going. Archangel’s storm mesmerized me.

Totally recommended!
