Angels' Dance review

Angels' Dance by Nalini Singh is the novella that tells Galen and Jessamy's beginning. It technically takes place before any of the other novels and novellas in the Guild Hunter series though it was only published in 2012 - first in the print anthology Angels' Flight in February and as a standalone ebook in December.

Those readers who have read the Guild Hunter series will have met Galen and Jessamy in the second book, Archangel's Kiss, and I for one am happy to have read how they met. In addition to the Galen and Jessamy background, Angels' Dance also gives a glimpse of the early years of Raphael's archangel rule and the formation of his Seven.

Angels' Dance is an intriguing look into the past of many of the characters that I've grown to love in the Guild Hunter series, filling in details of some history while only revealing tantalizing pieces of others.

All in all, another solid entry into the growing Guild Hunter novellas that leaves this reader craving the next book in the series.


The gentle teacher of angelic young, and the keeper of her people's histories, Jessamy is respected and admired by everyone who knows her. Yet, born unable to soar into flight, she has spent thousands of years trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge, her heart encased in painful loneliness...until the arrival of Galen, warrior angel from a martial court.

Rough-edged and blunt, Galen is a weapons-master at home with violence, a stranger to the sweet words it takes to woo a woman--but he is also a man determined to claim Jessamy for his own, to dance with her through the skies denied her for so very long...even if their exhilarating passion proves as dangerous as the landscape of war and unrest that lies before them.

Angels' Dance previously appeared in the anthology, Angels' Flight.
