Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo
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…
I have been (not so) patiently waiting for Naasir’s story. Ever since we met him, almost from the beginning of the series, I was curious about his origins. Who and what is Naasir really?

Naasir is one of Raphael’s seven and the best hunter there is. After thousands and thousands of years, Naasir has decided to look for his mate. He is tired of the loneliness and eager to experience what Raphael and Dmitri have with their mates, to share secret rules with her. So when Raphael asks him to find Alexander, Naasir’s search for his mate is put on hold. But finding Alexander won’t be as easy as it sounds and the only one who can help in his mission is Andromeda, an angelic scholar with as many secrets as him.

Archangel’s Enigma was everything I've been waiting and more. Naasir was the most perfect hero in the series. He wasn't civilized but he made an effort to appear, he was strong, a true hunter at heart, playful, secretive, he was truly an enigma. Nobody except Raphael and few others knew his origins so it was fun to watch Andromeda join the club along with Elena, Honor (Dmitri’s mate) and us. Thank God Singh takes pity on us and we finally get answers.

Andromeda was a unique character as well. She may have been a scholar but she was nothing like the average librarian. She was well trained, actually she was like a ninja with her sword, she had so many secrets, she was intelligent and she never backed down from an argument she knew she could win.

I loved the scene where Naasir firstly realized that Andromeda could be his mate. Naasir and Andromeda’s journey brought them closer but it also picked up the pace of the series. We finally see action, a lot of it. Two ancient archangels are awake and a new archangel is about to ascend.

We also got to see some scenes with Raphael and Elena, Jessamy and Galen, Dmitri and Honor, Venom, Illium and Aodhan. Expect a huge surprise coming regarding Illium.

I loved Archangel’s Enigma so much. I feel that the series is finally heading somewhere, it definitely progresses. I hope the next book will be either Illium or Venom’s book. I really want to read their stories and watch them get their HEAs.

This book is for all the series lovers.
