Friday Memes: Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am featuring a book from my TBR mountain. I chose Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh because I was in the mood for some good paranormal fiction. Here is the description:
Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh's darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance...

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.
Beginning:
Jason didn't know how long he'd been hiding in the dark place in the ground where his mother had put him, telling him to "hush."He'd waited so long, hadn't even crawled out when his stomach hurt with hunger, but she hadn't returned as she'd promised, and his wings were cramped and hurting from the small space, his face wet with tears.
Friday 56:
Above him, he heard his father's joyful exclamation, and he laughed.

  1. What a heart-breaking beginning. I'm hoping Jason is the person in your Friday 56 who heard his father's joyful exclamation, because his mother doesn't sound too caring! Sounds like a good story.
