Exclusive Cover Reveal: Nalini Singh Archangel’s Shadows

I wish I could say that I have this on my Kindle and I’m reading it right now. Alas…no. But I have stared at the cover for a while since I received it last night. I love that Ashwini is not depicted as a blonde haired, blue eyed Scandinavian but matches her in-book description.  And yeah, Janvier, you look nice, too.

Archangel's Shadows

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s sensual and painfully beautiful Guild Hunter world in her new novel of sacrifice, loyalty, and the choices of love that can shatter the heart.

In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot—should not—be walking the streets.

This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…

Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

You can find Nalini Singh here:

Now, the first question I asked was when the release date was. November 2014 is the answer. WHAT???? That’s so far away. To appease us, Berkley and Nalini Singh are offering up a complete set of the Archangel series, in paper, to be shipped anywhere. Yes, anywhere. AND 1 Advanced Reader’s Copy of Shield of Winter (here’s why you want to read this book)

    Shiloh, you know our Bluebell is going to get his own book one day. ;)

    But ZOMG. I LOVE this cover. It’s gorgeous. I love how Ashwini is depicted–it’s exactly how I envisioned her. And Janvier is looking verra nice too. I LOVE the blurb. It’s one of the best covers I’ve seen.

    Nalini is sooooo good at introducing characters in her series where I read and say, I want that book and that one and that one and that one. I have been dying for Ashwini and Janvier, ever since it was mentioned that in book one. I loved the novella with them. I am so excited to read their book and it’ll be intolerably long until it releases.

    If I had wings, they’d likely be like those of a red-winged black bird…black with red on the leading arches. Impatiently waiting for this book!

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:17:30

    What wings? Oooo a soft deep blue that almost looks black (like the iridescence of a raven’s black) with some aquamarine highlights at the end, flecks of silver on the dark part of the wings ^_^

  19. Reneesance
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:17:32

    Sooooo long to wait. Love love LOVE the cover. I’d have to go with black wings with red tips because I still like to indulge my inner gothchild occasionally

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:18:01

    Well, Ashwini is an Asian woman and from India heritage, it will be very wrong if the model is a Caucasian. As an Asian, I’m so happy to see this cover and hope there will be more Asian heroines to come.

    Sorry if this is a repeat but I’m not sure the “post comment” button worked. If I had wings I think I’d like them to be like a red-wing black bird’s wings, blue black with scarlet leading edges.

    And without any doubts, my wings would be black with purple details *_*

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:21:19

    I love this cover, I love that after book after book (and novella) of being teased about these two, we are finally getting them! I know we are all waiting with baited breath for Illium, but I seriously hope we get a story for Venom and (I hope) Sorrow getting together.

    I’m a dark chestnutty brunette with red lights so I’d like my wings to be graduated in color from a pale buttery cream to metallic coppery bronze.

  35. Tiana
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:21:29

    November seems so far away!

    I would like to have wings of shadow. I am a wall flower and an watcher. i would want to blend in with my surroundings.

  36. Kimberly
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:21:29

    Today is my birthday…so OBVIOUSLY that ARC of Shield of Winter needs to come to me! I LOVE this cover, whoever the artist was earned every penny. Not just for the beauty of it {and Ash, OMG!} but for really capturing the essence of this series and Nalini’s New York. I love it…and again…I’m serious about Shield of Winter!

  37. Kathryn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:22:49

    My best friend and I actually thought long and hard about our respective wing colors! I love the idea of plum, edged in a soft silvery-purple, and fading down into cream at the bottom….

  38. Jolanda
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:22:54

    Sorry, forgot to comment about the wings: I’d like them to be black and white.

  39. Alyssa @ Hesperia Loves Books
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:23:21

    GORGEOUS cover!!!! I cannot wait to read this next book in one of my all time favorite series. Ashwini is perfectly depicted on the cover – great job!!

  40. Rai
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:23:40

    If I could have wings I would have wings the shimmering green color found on hummingbirds … or maybe not. that would be a lot of very bright green. But I’d want that color on my wings, maybe mixed with some other shades of green and blue?

  41. Margo
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:23:54

    I would love hunter wings. Dark purple and rich blues, with a streak of gold throughout.
    I just love Nalini. She is my favorite author and I wish I could live in her stories and have the happy ending.

  42. Elizabeth H.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:24:06

    Yay!! Can’t wait for this book! If I could have any color wings I would love to have Illium’s blue wings!
    Thanks for the cover reveal and the wonderful giveaway!!

  43. Carrie Cunningham
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:24:33

    Hmmmm… my wings would be dark, black maybe… with orange, red and violet woven throughout in a shattered design.

  44. Tanya
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:24:42

    I would have pitch black wings with slashes of purple and turquoise. and silver angel dust to make my wings sparkle like a midnight nebula.

  45. esra
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:24:55

    I want red wings , bright red with black tipped . that would be unique :D
    cant wait for the book!

  46. Malin
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:25:09

    If I had wings, they would have to be in shades of purple, because that’s my favourite colour. Maybe with some black. I wish I had wings now.

    The cover is gorgeous, probably my favourite of all the ones in the series so far. Really liked Ashwini’s novella, can’t wait to read the book.

    Oh! I do like the cover! And I 100% agree with you about Ash on the cover. If I had wings, they would be jet all the way through, maybe a bit of silver patterning at the very tips.

  54. Hailey
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:30:18

    Best friends with Kathryn from above. I would love soft, brushed gold wings that shimmer a little, with hints of blush pink interspersed. We decided my infant daughter would have blush pink wings with brushed gold filaments. This conversation may or may not have taken up an afternoon :)

  55. Tira Taylor

  68. Helen
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:39:52

    I love the cover of the book! So excited. If I could have any wings..they would be white but with cream and slightly gold on them. Anyway I would turn you could see a different color.
    I found a picture but, it would not load!

  73. merve
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:42:48

    It would be pink and purple, starting pink and turning to purple at the base. And some white at the tip of the feathers. :D I love pink!

  74. Sarah Rosenberg

  77. Sarah Rosenberg
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:45:24

  78. Erica H
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:45:46

    I would want dark brown wings. They would blend nicely.

  79. Poonam Nebhnani
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:46:21

    If I could have wings they would be white with layers of different hues of red or purple in it in an overlaying pattern. Something like this http://pokemew12.deviantart.com/art/MMD-Pink-Wings-337127451

    They would also have golden at the edges. And I would like a pattern like that of shattered glass when something sharp is thrown on it, at the centre of each wing, Like this maybe http://sykosys.deviantart.com/art/Shattered-Glass-Wallpaper-1-256066594

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 10:51:12

    Just started the Archangel series and I’m already halfway through! Can’t wait for this one (and for Shield of Winter!) Of course, having wings would be very cool, especially if they were gold because who doesn’t want gold angel wings?

  97. Leesa W.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:04:31

    I’ve been waiting for Ashblade and the Cajun since the first book! Their novella only made it worse. I won’t pretend I don’t wish it was Bluebell’s turn, but he’s well worth the wait :-) My wings would be a sooty black; suited for stealth like a certain spymaster’s (but maybe edged with the slightest hint of silver as a nod to the sliver of vanity I’m ashamed I possess. Lol)

  98. alyssa
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:06:46

    Honestly I think Elena’s wings are the most gorgeous. And I would love to have a similar version.

  99. Eva

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:10:38

    I’m so rxciteforir this book abd can’t wait to read it. Now my wings would gi from a deep midnight blue to the color of sunset at the tips with faint starburst throughout.

  103. SilkeISD
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:11:02

  106. Cat Jennings
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:13:17

    Mine would be a range of greens, from the edge of blue to the edge of yellow and all the colors in between, with edges of the other colors in the rainbow along the tips. But mostly greens. Like hazel eyes!

  111. SilkeISD
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:15:50

    Coming out of lurkerdom for a chance at any of these books. A basic deep blue shading down into white would be my choice for wings. I’m looking forward to reading anything Ms. Singh writes. Thanks for the chance to win!

    If I had wings I would want them to be bronze-y gold-y. I am so excited for this book, I can’t even articulate how happy I am

  115. Nicole
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:19:27

    WOW! The cover is incredible! Ash looks just as I’d pictured her! Can’t wait for the book. If I had wings, they’d be blue from the arches down then canary yellow would start dapple them until they became more solid yellow, but while the insides were yellow, the back and outsides would remain blue. similar to the wings of the Blue and Yellow Macaw. :) http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2013/210/c/0/blue_and_yellow_macaw_parrot_outspread_wings_by_emoshunka-d6fp8eo.jpg

    Love the cover!

    If you could have wings, what color/pattern/design would they be?: The colours in the sunset image below:
    http://www.wallpick.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/15/Sunset-640×400.jpg

    Pattern/design: The colours go from dark to light as you move towards the tips of the wings. The tips should be bright red.

    Now I want wings!

  120. Tabs

  121. Samantha

    My wings would be gradations of purple from a black/violet at the top the the palest lilac at the tips.

    Holy OMG, thank you for the fantastic give-away! I love the Psy Changeling series and I’ve been wanting to start the Guild Hunter series so this is so perfect.
    For my wings… i think I’d like a splash of bright blues and purples and yellows, bleeding into each other, like a Chagall painting come to life.
    Or, you know, just white would be nice too. :-)

  124. pookietoes
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:27:47

    I would love this! I have the books on kindle and nook but there’s nothing like the scent from the pages of a fresh book especially a Nalini Singh book!

  125. winnie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:28:13

    This cover is gorgeous and I’m so looking forward to reading this! :) As for what kind of wings I’d like, I would just go with something simple like white wings with some iridescence shimmer to it.

  126. Eileen
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:30:32

    I’d love to have wonderful green wings. But not plain green. They should be phtalo green, shading down into dark green and yellow-green with beautiful white tips. This would be wonderful.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win your amazing books! I hope you’ll send them to Germany :)

    Wings are easy — CORVIDAE, all the way! Midnight black, with iridescent purple and blue and green shimmers…

  131. Jen Twimom
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:38:23

    If I had wings, I’d like them to be like Elena’s: dark and mysterious. Maybe a dark blue with a bit of gold on the edges. :-)

  132. Julia
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:42:51

    Not gonna lie, any time someone asks me to think of covers that I really like, this series comes to mind. I absolutely adore the way the covers match the in-book descriptions of the characters!

    Ooooh, what a lovely cover! November 2014 is just so far away…

    If I had wings I would like them to be green, because green is my “happy color”. Maybe starting light and shading to dark from one end to the other…

  144. Make Kay

  145. Stephanie G (Paranormal Haven)

  147. Christina

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:54:49

    Ash and Janvier, YAY!!!!! Sign me up!! If I had wings, I think I’d like them to be shades of blue and gray…going from dark navy to slate blue to light gray.

  149. JJPP
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 11:56:18

    Which character is it whose wings are a really deep, but sort of colorful, black? (I need a refresher on these books, which is why I wouldn’t mind if Berkley sent me the full collection. :)) I would like those, please! Black is so much easier to style. :)

  153. Vicki D
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 12:04:48

    If I could have wings… I think they would be white, or black. I know, polar opposites lol but I like the contrast that either of those colours would bring :)

    I haven’t read any of this series but I really love the sound of it! The cover is great too! :)

  172. rinib
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 12:27:17

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 12:36:39

    I’d have wings made of marimo (a green, downy, aquatic plant form) and magically encased in a layer of water, so that touching my wings would be similar to the experience of submerging your hand in a cool tide-pool, brushing your fingers against an interesting life form. The color of the water would change with my emotions.

    Here’s what a healthy marimo looks like: http://forumaquar.dominiotemporario.com/portal/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/marimo_ball.jpg

    “If you could have wings, what color/pattern/design would they be? Links to pictures are encouraged by not required!”

    Crimson red with black highlights! Or turquoise combined with navy blue

  188. Robin
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 12:59:02

    If I had wings they would be be a pale gray/mauve, shimmering with hints of delicate hints of thistle and darkening to tips of deep purple. Her hair would be that same deep purple but with an ombré shading to pale thistle falling in a tapered fall to the middle of her back. Her eyes would be platinum with a flare of amethyst starburst. :). I.ve thought about this a lot. Lol

  189. library addict
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:00:22

    I would like wings that could change color depending on my outfit :p But they would normally be a dark purple hue maybe mixed with emerald green. Not that I wear a lot of purple or green, but that’s what I want.

  190. Amy Kathryn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:02:28

    Such a great cover but I have really liked all the covers for the Archangel series.

    My wings would have to be a riff on peacock feathers somehow. I love the colors and the unique patterning.

  191. Dreamseeker

    I totally didn’t answer the question…*headsmack* What color wings would I like? I really like the look of these wings – http://www.sxc.hu/assets/26/252656/angel-wings-284345-m.jpg – as well as these – http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/two-angel-wings-10107341.jpg

  194. Lisa J
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:10:19

    I would love wings like a hawk (pictures here http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=hawk+wings&id=86FD7CE33A52E4D7E39D8594E741979E74E73A31&FORM=IQFRBA#a) They look so soft and strong at the same time. The colors range from soft gray to beautiful earth tones.

    The cover is interesting. I really need to try this series. I love the Psy/Changelings, but have not tried this one because I like each book to be about a different couple. The reviews for this one are always great. Time to get the first one on my reader and give it a try.

  195. Caroline

  196. Dreamseeker
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:14:52

    If I could have wings I always think of four color patterns: a harlequin pattern like stained glass, a peacock/golden pheasant pattern colorful pattern, an owl or a kestrel. Most of the time I go with the kestrels and owls. The owl species changes on a whim – snowy, spotted, barn owls. Raptors found in the Pacific NW of the US. While I love the colorful patterns of the pheasants and peacocks, I also like the gorgeous patterns that blend in with the conifer forests here at home. I spend a lot of time watching owls and hawks, and when I can I watch the migrations (there’s a major flyway about 2 hours from where I live). It’s so amazing to be watching what looks like a tree trunk and then have it blink at you :-)

  202. sandyl
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:29:30

    I would have the speckled wings of hawk. But if my coloring was darker, I would definitely go with the wings of the red-winged blackbird.

  203. Allie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:30:25

    If I could chose my wings, I would go for a flame pattern similar to this http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs47/f/2009/182/e/1/Flame_Angel_Wing_by_Shadoweddancer.jpg

  204. Kim

  210. Emma
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:50:13

    I feel like the girl in this picture was Qetsiyah from the Vampire Diaries. She looks so much like her.

  214. Candy
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:09:27

    I would totally choose the peacock design. It’s so pretty and interesting, I think it would look amzing on a pair of wings! http://www.flickr.com/photos/lomoody/6701104179/

  215. Candy
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:15:22

    I don’t know how I am going to make it until November! The only thing that makes it bearable, is it is ALWAYS worth the wait!

  216. Carmen
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:16:30

    Black wings.

    Can´t wait for this book

  219. Imani
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:20:40

    Bronze wings for sure. I always loved the coloured wings of the eastern archangels the best.

    Siiiiigh. November!

  220. Christine
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:24:52

    ombre from white to deep ruby red :) (basically, this dress: http://wai-ching.com/content/catalan-dress)

  221. Collette
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:25:44

    Black and lots of shades of grey with shimmer–lots of shimmer.

  222. Tae
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:31:27

    Oh man, if I had wings, I would want them to be a sapphire blue and purple. I can’t wait for this to come out.

  223. Candace
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:35:11

    I would have white wings with turquoise streakswith hints of soft grays that were reminiscent of carrera marble.

  224. Hang
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:41:05

    My wings would be like peacock feathers going from gold to teal to dark violet being the darkest.

  225. Dee
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:42:35

    I love this cover!! November is sooooo far.
    At least Shield of Winter is coming soooon.

  226. Alexandra
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:42:47

    LOVE the cover! I think wings of emerald green would be amazing. I’m don’t remember reading about any other angels with wings that color in the series so far…

  227. Sabrina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:43:13

    I think I’d want pearlescent turquoise wings. Because shiny.

  228. Dee
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:47:23

    I think would like my wings to be black and fades to green then fades to white to the tips.

  229. Hillary Wade
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:49:26

    So exciting! Thanks for the chance! Deciding on wings is very hard. Maybe an ombre with yellow on the bottom moving to almost black red on the top? With all the shades inbetween.

  230. Liz H.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:50:21

    Dark purple, but I do love Bluebell’s description.

  231. Jennifer Noe
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:55:46

    I would like my wings to be an iridescent burgundy lightening to scarlet at the tips and bottom edge. I cannot wait to finally get Janvier and Ashwini’s story!

  232. Lozza
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 14:59:06

    I’d probably go with some bright-ass peacock wings.

  233. Ambreen
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:07:23

    Haha I keep hoping that each book that comes out will be Bluebells! But the cover to Ashwini and Janvier’s story looks epic! Also if I could have wings I’d want strong, large one was charcoal great with dark silver streaks within. It strikes me as a peaceful yet powerful combination.

  234. Tina

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:10:58

    Ooohhh, I’d want wings with different shades of blue and purple with a little silver thrown in. I can’t wait for this book!

  236. Jo
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:14:53

    My wings would be ombre effect in a dark shade of purple :)

  237. Micah George
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:19:05

    If I were to have wings, they would be a deep midnight black extending outwards from my back and blending into an azure blue or indigo, ending at the tips in dusty silver like stars on a clear night. ;)

  238. LynnL
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:28:37

    November is too far away.

  239. DeeAnn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:32:28

    Love the cover!
    If I had wings, I would choose a deep red or maroon color.

  240. Kelsey G
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:39:48

    If I could have wings…there’s something about Rafael’s wings that click with me. So, white and gold. I can’t wait for this book! Or Shield of Winter…I’m definitely ready for Vasic’s HEA!

  241. Jillian
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:40:17

    If I had wings I would want them to be blackish grey color with a dark pink coating the edges and in the middle I would want gold to graze my middle feathers and since I can’t draw a stick man to save my life your imaginations will just have to do

  242. Valerie Spearman
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:42:10

    White with gold tips.

  243. Dana
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:42:59

    Thanks for the giveaway. I’d love to have metallic blue wings like the kingfisher…

  246. Annika
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:47:18

    Oh! Oh! Oh! I’ve waited for their story ever since their short story was released! Yay!

    My wings would be hot pink and gold! Because..hot pink! And gold! Fun!

  247. Julaine
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:52:07

    This is one of my favorite series and I have been waiting for this couple.

  248. AJ

  249. Chris Adkins
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:56:47

    Wings? How cool. Prolly light pink & yellow- pink for my girl & yellow for my boy. With a couple sparkle feathers for me. :)

  250. Judy
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:57:27

    My wings would be shades of coral and salmon.

  251. Rachel Brown
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:59:11

    Nalini is my no.1 favourite author!! Every story she writes is amazing!!!

  252. Ravinia
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:01:16

    I can’t Wait to read!!!

  253. Ann
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:02:23

    Shades of blue. Some so deeply blue l and iridescent.

  254. Afshan syed
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:03:44

    Yayyy! Can’t wait for this! And it’s so hard to decide what wings I would like! Hmm I think starting in ivory and going through all pink shades ending with deep fushia!

  255. Madeline
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:06:16

    Favorite Series!!!!

  256. Kelly
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:10:31

    Can’t wait for this release!

  257. Renee
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:11:46

    I would love a deep royal purple at the top that turns in to bright fire red at the tips.
    Also I’m international. :)

  258. Emilia
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:11:56

    If I had wings, I’d love them to fade from dark blue at the arches to dark green then into dark purple primaries

  259. Susan
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:18:42

    LOVE THAT COVER!!! Ash looks just as I imagined her.
    If I had wings I would want black shot with silver feathers.

  260. erinf1
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:21:13

    I love the design of Elena’s wings so I would love the starburst dark into light of blue and black :) Thanks for sharing!

  261. Jenn B
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:24:02

    I’d want any design as long as it was the same shade of my pink hair. :)

  262. Nancy
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:25:03

    What a fun comment question! My wings would be a bright midnight blue with gold detailing edging.

  263. Quressa Robinson
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:29:00

    I’m also a Bluebell@Shiloh Walker: I’m also a Bluebell stalker, but I’ve read Ashwini and Janvier’s short story.

  264. NatalieM
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:33:52

    I can never decide between white, blue or purplish wings. I love how Nalini has described Iliums wings and my favorite color is blue since I was a little girl soo I suppose I go with blue!

  265. Auraya
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:39:44

    I’m so happy that Ash and janvier are going to get a book of their own. And Ash is wearing sensible! clothing on this cover, which is a huge plus. Also, the chance to read Shield of Wnter earlier would be awesome.

  266. HM
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:40:14

    I’d love my wings to look like the ones in this pic:

    http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/fairies/images/1695878/title/red-wings-fanart

    Except in shades of blue and purple and possibly green.

  267. Jasmine H.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:43:36

    Wow!mi live both of these characters. I can’t wait fort their book.

  268. Tamia bailey
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:44:04

    If i had wings i would want it to be purple tipped with blue at the end of the feathers

  269. stephanie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:44:10

    Omg I cannot wait to read any of Nalini’s books when they come out. This one shall be the same

  270. Auraya
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:45:16

    Oh, I didn’t see the question until after I commented. I think I’d like bright blue wings, perhaps mixed with some white, like Iliums. I wouldn’t want to be to visible in the sky.

  271. Jasmine H.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:45:36

    Curse my nerve sensitive arm and auto correct!!
    That was supposed to read “I love”!!

  272. Sheila K
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:54:15

    I think it would be something in the blues.
    Starting with a dark blue at the top and fading into pale blue at the bottom.

  273. lee ann daugherty, B&N bookseller
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:57:30

    We’ve been waiting for Ash & Janvier’s story for – it seems like – a long time. Finally we’ll get the mysterious Ashwini’s backstory…wasn’t there something about a brother? Oh, and I’d love feathers in a medium gray with striations of dark blue and black.

  274. Kelly
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 16:59:12

    I don’t suppose I could have wings with literary quotes or references? No? Well, a rose pattern then? I love roses; green wings with red flowers on them.

  275. Kristal Alfonso
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:07:15

    My wings would be the opposite of Elena’s…as opposed to sunset, mine would be sunrise, with streaks of orange, magenta, pinks, purples, with soft, pale cream as the main part of the wing.

  276. Diane
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:08:05

    A nice golden shade with a darker brown around the edges, maybe a design of clouds !

  277. Chanpreet
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:10:47

    I know this hasn’t been proven possible yet, but I’d love to have wings that were able to change color at will, sort of chameleon like. That way I could be as stealthy as Jason, colorful like Bluebell, and strong like Elena. The benefit to this besides being to match my mood/outfit/circumstance is the infinite number of possibilities.

    I found some very pretty pictures but am afraid to post them in case of copyright infringement.

  278. Janhavi
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:16:16

    I would like wings like Mahiya’s- peacock like.

  279. Amy S.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:17:09

    My wings would be black with a white slash through the middle

  280. Linda
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:22:11

    If I ever got wings *gigglesnort* ;D I´d love for them to be a blueish gray, kinda like http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/259/7/d/mmd_absolute_best_angel_wings_by_amiamy111-d5ex3w7.png *nods* That would be my fav. kind.
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Friday!
    //Linda

  281. Holly
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:24:39

    My wings would be pink and getting darker throughout the wing until they are only dark red at the bottom. Kind of like the colour transition on this feather: http://www.123rf.com/photo_10792315_pink-feather-of-pigeon-over-white-background.html

    The cover is gorgeous! Ashwini and Janvier look great.

  282. Sarah S
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:25:27

    Is it November yet??? I love this series so much and have already worn out a couple of them so far from all the reading. I’ve been hoping since their novella for Ash and Janvier’s story. I feel a series reread coming very soon.

  283. Sarah S
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:27:45

    If I had wings, they would be a deep blood red.

  284. Sheryl
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:29:32

    Finally, a book for Ash and Janvier! Ever since reading Archangel’s Legion I can’t get that line about him playing “sexy nurse” for her out of my head. November can’t come soon enough.

    And I’d like wings of dark blue or black.

  285. leslie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:32:30

    I am so thrilled about the direction of this series……the last book was spectacular! thanks for the giveaway!

    @Shiloh Walker: I love Bluebell too…….I am waiting with the same amount of angst and anticipation as I did for Kalab in the Psy/Changling series.

  286. Cristina Bacchi
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:33:26

    OMG, I can’t believe this is real!!! The cover is sooo AWESOME! And I can’t wait for Ashwini and Janvier’s story…they’re one of my favorite couples. I’ve crossed all my fingers hoping to win! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! ^_^

  287. Julie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:34:39

    Can mine have shiny trim? Horrible for stealth, but terrific for parties!

  288. giovana
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:34:43

    My wings would have that ”hologram” color. Silver, lilac and green. Sooo pretty. Can’t wait to see Raphael again!!! Favorite series EVER!

  289. Katrina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:36:18

    I love the idea of wings that are shades of blue, like twilight.

  290. Cyndi
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:42:57

    I love the cover!!! Can’t wait for the book. My wings would be a dark color to blend in with the night.

  291. Christina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 17:59:45

    I would really like to read this series. I’m always hearing Jane and Sarah talk about it on the DBSA podcast.

  292. Kathryn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:00:25

    I’d have purple wings.

    I cannot wait for this book!!!

  293. Christina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:02:29

    I kind of like the idea of off-white wings, or multicolored gray. I think I’m probably boring.

  294. Elane Nunley
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:03:30

    Awesome! Can’t wait!

  295. MissE
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:11:23

    I’d choose blood red wings with some sort of black accent pattern.

  296. Nicole S.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:13:19

    Mine would probably be something subtle and plain at first glance, but if the light hit them just right…

  297. Nina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:13:38

    I would have crimson wings like so: http://www.andead.com/img/img_angel.jpg

    If I had wings I would want them to be a mixture of black, gray, hazel, white, and chocolate brown:Much like the coat of the timber wolf in the picture.

  299. İlkim Saral
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:18:30

    I think it would be light blue, big, fluffy wings :)

  300. Laura
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:23:42

    Yes, I can say I have been waiting for this for a while!

  301. JoAnn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:24:13

    Gunmetal with silver and black accents.

  302. JoAnn
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:24:36

    Gunmetal with silver and black accents. Can’t wait for this book!!!

  303. Karen
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:34:47

    Shades of deep purples and blues to light purples and blues, sleek looking and the edges and tips lined with midnight black.

  304. Rasha
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:36:47

    Blue for sure

  305. kp
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:38:44

  307. Katrina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:41:53

    I always loved the descriptions of sleeping under angel wings in Sharon Shinn’s Samaria series. I would like to be enveloped in dark blue-black feathered, warm wings.

  308. Mandy
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:48:27

    Pure black wings tipped with gold.

  309. kayla
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:49:50

  310. Jen D.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:52:16

  311. Jen D.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:55:34

    As for my wings, I think they’d be a deep brown, faded to gold towards the primaries, almost a purple closer to the back. Lol, I gave this way too much thought. ;)

  312. Osmary
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:06:41

    I would like white wings with dark blue edges

  313. Bibi

  314. clarissa
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:09:14

    So glad that Ashwini is not depicted as a generic typical girl on the cover!
    Really really looking forward to the release now :D

  315. Cassandra
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:25:30

    My wings would be the colours of a paua shell. Blues greens purples pinks silver greys black

  316. Tricia cortez
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:25:59

  318. Lynnd
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:32:32

    I am looking forward to both of Nalini’s books this year.

    If I had wings, I would like the feathers to be varying shades of red with navy blue tips.

  319. Lynnette
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:32:59

    I can’t wait for this book. If I had wings I’d love them to look like peacock feathers.

  322. Jessica
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:39:35

    Wings of any color or pattern would be awesome! But if I could choose, could I have wings like Illium’s? Or just have his book?

    Thanks for the chance to win the whole GH set and Shield of Winter. I’m a huge fan of both series and am counting down to the release date of SoW and will begin the countdown for AS when the release date is made public.

  323. Allison
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:42:43

  325. Sasha H

  328. Helen G.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 19:57:34

    @Helen G.:

    Totally forgot to post my “wings” they would be either kind of delicate like a fairy,or able to come on by will as they would be on fire baby!! Angelfire!!

  329. Lisa M
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 20:00:48

    Deep black fading into dark amethyst purple, then to violet before fading into shimmery rose gold and silver tips.

    Ashwini and Janvier’s story is sure to certainly be an interesting, exciting, and extremely tense story.

    If I had wings, I would love to have them like Ilium, but with purple instead of blue.
    I wouldn’t mind Elena’s wings too, they are truly beautiful!!!
    If I had to choose my own style, I would love wings that start out black, fading into a dark purple, fading into a blue, then a light jade, the wing tips ending into a white gold!

    I love both of her series! All of these books are fabulous!

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 20:38:11

    I was hoping Ash & Janvier would have their own story. They have so much chemistry together!

    My wings would be a deep green with silver tips.

    Sorry. Didn’t post colors. I’d want midnight blue wings fading to gold tips. ;)

  341. Katie
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 21:04:39

    wings the color of the sunset

  342. Gloria

    I would love to have different shades of purple! Can’t wait for this book :-)

  343. Tara
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 21:08:09

    I am SO EXCITED about this!!!!

    My wings would be that of a golden eagle. Lots of shades of brown with hidden golden highlights and black primaries.

  344. Jennifer Butcher
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 21:18:02

    Love this cover. These books always take me to another world :-) if I had wings in that world, I would want them to be dark purple, fading to light purple (top to bottom) with silver edging the feathers.

  345. Bella
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 21:30:27

    Love Ashwini & Janvier! Especially Ashwini’s reputation for being a little crazy haha
    If I could have wings I’d want soft silvery ones, the color of my weim lol. With bright blue tips just like his pretty puppy eyes:)
    This isn’t him but he looked exactly like this as a baby:

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 22:21:39

    Is a great cover! Very nice. I love the series covers though. If I could have wings, I guess they would be black. Nothing like some great black wings…you said to give you a picture: http://flexdreams.deviantart.com/art/Wings-Of-Sorrow-269471995

    My wings would be black with undertones of red.
    The book cover is beautiful.

  351. Roxanne
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 22:30:45

    Sorry – I thought it was any type of comment!
    If I had wings I would want wings starting with black at the top with a fade, starting at about the mid-way point, to obsidian blue with purple and green accents.

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 22:41:30

    Ooh, exciting! I’m retiring in November and will be able to read the book As Soon As It Is Released!

  353. Azucena Rodriguez
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 22:51:54

    This would be a great way to for me to start this series :) And having that ARC of Shield of Winter would make me the HAPPIEST person alive since I wait for the paperbacks editions of the Psy/Changeling series.

    Now, my wings would be purple and swirling with magical dust, preferably with my witchy potions :)

  354. Aman

    :( November is SOOOOO Far away, but at least it’s my birthday month? something to look forward to? I am looking forward to this so much :) and I also adore that the cover fits with the character since covers clashing with in story characterization/description is soooo common!

  356. KC
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:21:15

    Can’t wait! Thanks for the opportunity.

  357. Angela
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:22:55

    LOL and if I could have wings of ANY color I’d go with a ravens wing :) Deep, dark midnight black; but when the light hits it; you can see hints of the rainbow :)

  358. Mi
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:25:33

    My wings would be ever-changing, depending on my mood! :)

  359. Jennifer Pierson
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:30:42

    I would like my wings to be pink dipped in silver angel dust for my bling factor!

  360. Anhayla
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:49:55

    If I could have wings they would be turquoise, with bright green accents, and maybe some dusting of copper. This is the closest I could find. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8439/7772679126_a6d2afbfd0_z.jpg

  361. Trizia
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:53:28

  362. Trizia
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 23:55:38

    If I where to have wings, it would a combination of blue and grey(mostly grey) like Raphael’s and Elena’s eyes. :)

  363. Shauni
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:09:23

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I am totally excited about it. Can’t wait fir Archangel’s Shadows to come out. Nalini always gives us such a treat with her books

  364. Abril
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:14:02

    If I had wings the color they would be black with sparkling silver in the tips.

  365. Zainab M
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:20:41

    Royal blue threaded with light blue at the tips of the wings.

    This pic shows the exact colours that I want http://img1.etsystatic.com/015/1/7122042/il_fullxfull.439470205_lqp2.jpg?ref=l2

  366. Naomi
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:36:17

    If I had wings I’d like the markings of a bluejay. They’re gorgeous.

  367. Farah
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:38:47

    I would love my wings to be something sparkly! Maybe something like Aodhan’s perhaps?

  368. Caroline
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:46:47

    Ever since reading this book, I’ve fallen in love with almost every character (I just seem to not get into the evil ones, for some reason. I wonder why… :) ). Nalini Singh’s book are possible my favourite books from any author. I just love the way she seems to be able to draw the characters and world out of her books.
    I’ve always thought about what my wings would be like, however my favourite idea, was that my wings would be something like pitch black, perfect for being a night scout. However in the sun, streaks all sorts of metallic colours, such as gold, copper, silver, etc. would be visible. Also, they would be very streamline and allow me to be very fast. Because I’m not fast in real life. At all.

  369. Jordan R.
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:47:03

    I’d love a mix of silver and violet. If I could get away with dying my hair those colors, I totally would!

  370. Belinda
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 00:47:59

    Wings the colour of a soft sunset with silver tips!

  371. Briana
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 01:04:21

    If I had wings they’d be emerald green edged in silver. Man November is so far away, I’ll just have to let Shield of Winter hold me over.

  372. LisaH
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 01:31:22

    Hmmm my wings would be a clash of grey, white and black because that’s how I view the world

  373. Benedicte Reiter
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 02:01:37

    I have loved every one of the Psy-Changeling books and would love to read the Guild Hunter series as well. Nalini is my favourite author.

  374. Arielle Rae Aguilar
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 02:17:29

    That is way too hard, and needs a lot of thought
    Out of the top of my head though, I would love to have one with any pattern/color, as long as the feathers are silver tipped

    Can’t wait for Ashwinis and Janviers book! I’ve been waiting for ages!

  375. Claire
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 02:21:07

    So cool !

  376. Laura Monostori
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 02:58:39

    If I would have wings, they would be ice-cold blue with a hint of turquize green that turns into black. Almost like these just darker on the tips. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/190628996701807491/

  377. Jen B
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 03:25:25

    I think I’d have red/gold feathery wings, like a phoenix.

  378. Irene Jackson
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 04:04:24

    My wings would be lilac shading down to deep purple at the tips!

  379. Rebecca B.
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 04:13:07

    I am so excited!!! I love Nailini’s books so much, my absolute faves. ^_^

  380. Rebecca B.
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 04:14:49

    And also, my wings would probably be a combination of black and red. I have actually thought about this before, haha.

  381. Aliyah
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 04:38:28

    Woohoo! I wish I had wings.. that would be so cool. I would love to have dark purple and black wings with silver laced through (super dramatic, I know) and this way I could wear black and not look somber.

  382. Emma
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 05:00:03

    Bronze with black specks

  383. Tina Bartz
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 05:13:24

    I can’t wait! But I guess I have to (:
    I would love to have white and silver iridescent wings tipped with variegated colors of blue from lighter to darker (aqua, turquoise, baby blue then royal blue). I have no idea where I could find or make a representation of wings like this

  384. Aysha
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 05:34:50

    I would like my wings to have a peacock feather pattern
    It would be beautiful

  385. Hema Thasapalan
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 05:49:41

    I would love my feathers to be white with different tones of blues, and purple :)

  387. CG
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 06:52:17

    I think I would like smokey grey wings with the tips burnished in ash.

  388. Mire
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 07:17:28

    Hola Nalini. Mil gracias por el sorteo, soy una seguidora tuya, y bueno, la adoración que siento por ti y tus novelas no se pueden expresar con palabras, pero que sepas que te adoro, y que Ashwini es uno de mis personajes favoritos, y estoy muy emocionada al saber que tendremos más de ellos que un relato corto. MIL GRACIAS. Te quiero!! =D.

    Mire.

  390. Silvercleo
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 07:31:23

    Whoops, missed the wings question! If I could have wings… I think I would want them to be deep blues and sea greens, perhaps fading into deeper colors near the ends.

  391. Prihya Nathan
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 07:33:57

    A mix of black, red, and white would be my choice of colors for my wings. A swirling pattern that seems to spiral no matter spread or folded.

    I love both the series… Can’t wait for Ash to FINALLY have her chance to tangle with her ‘damn Cajun’!

  392. Solveig Chacon
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 08:17:50

    I found Nalini first for the Archangel Series and absolutely adored it!!.. of course that was follow for the Psy Changelings and now I dont know which one in my favorite… All I can say is that you can know by reading them that she writes from the heart

  393. RevelineS
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 08:50:22

    I can not wait for this book. If I had wings they would be black edged in different colors.

  394. Kat

    Now, to wait for the rest of the Seven stories like Aodhan!

  401. Sus4nn
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 10:05:08

    If I could have wings they would be a deep red with gold filaments. Maybe some kind of female version of Illium. What shall I say Bluebell is my favourite.

  402. Linda
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 10:08:21

    @Linda: Wings: I actually don’t know what color I want because all them are so pretty *g*

  403. Alexis
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 10:20:58

    If I had wings, I’d want deep purple wings fading through the spectrum of purples, lavenders, and violets, before reaching silver at the tips.

  404. HFowler
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 10:43:38

    I am so excited! Love Ash and Janvier. My wings would be several shades of purple.

  411. Dee

    Wings of blue shading from deepest azure to palest blue, top to bottom.

  412. CelineB
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 13:25:10

    Mine would be midnight blue with white quarter moons on them.

  413. Melissa

    Hey all,

    The cover is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I am in awe. GH series is one of the few series whose cover dont make me avoid reading them in public :)

    Wings wise, I would like to be a degrade colour of green like Mahyia’s minus the blue.

  415. Nicole
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:04:32

    If I could have wings, I’d want them to be able to support my body weight, but still not take up too much space (because I’m considerate like that). I’d like the pattern to replicate this missoni dress: http://cache3.asset-cache.net/xc/105430568-amber-tamblyn-during-the-sisterhood-of-the-filmmagic.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF87892102A727B1636DE2E6FB1612BE467908ADE321FDF858EBBAF3BDA3E650FDD353B6E30A760B0D811297

    Yay! I can’t wait!

  418. DeeCee
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:20:18

    I’d totally have to have winter inspired wings…that look like snowflakes or what the windows look like overnight after a frozen storm.

  419. Amy R
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:24:28

    If I had wings I would want them a deep blue with silver on the edging.

  420. MarieC
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:55:38

    I cannot wait! A&J have such great chemistry; if the previous novella and books are any indication, this will be awesome!

  421. Haley Michele
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:57:15

    My wings would be very deep black right at your back and then spread slowly into a soft purple. I looked for a picture but did find one that I liked well enough.

  422. MarieC
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:58:14

    I forgot to add, I’l love black, fading to silver

  423. Haley Michele
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 14:58:23

    My wings would be a deep black starting right at my back then fading into grey toward the edges.

    Green wings, like leaves.

  425. Elizabeth

    I can’t wait to see more of Ashwini and Janvier! If I had wings, I would want silver ones.

  426. Carolyn
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 15:13:59

    I would love dark silver wings with white tips! That would be beautiful:)

  427. Janhvi

    I LOVE Nalini Singh! If I had wings I’d want them to be a silvery translucent color.

  428. Maureen
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 15:31:03

    They would be sky blue.

  429. Jordan
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 15:47:49

    Yes! we will finally get answers, no more teasing entries in other books! And when does Venom get a storyline/book?

  430. Shana

  431. Melissa (Books and Things)

  432. Nikki Noffsinger
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 16:28:15

    I haven’t been a huge fan of angel themed books but I was hooked from the first Guild Hunter book and I am thrilled that Ash has her own book! I mean c’mon, we’re talking about Javier here. What woman living or fanged wouldn’t want a laid back smexy looking Cajun?

  433. Texas Book Lover
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 16:52:28

    Mine would be cobalt blue, black and white. Just because those colors are amazing together.

  434. Jennifer
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 17:30:23

    I would like burgundy-colored wings, preferably with a simple, minimalistic design!

  435. Patty
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 17:42:44

    I have been waiting for another story of Ash and Javier!!! If I had wings I would want bright blue and black like Morpho butterfly.

    My Wings would have to go a full palette of silver, grey, baby blue and navy blue :)

    Maybe in this “model”:

    Here they are in blue! Gorgeous!

    Can’t wait – that cover is awesome! I’d love Dark wings at the top, fading to a pale shade at the bottom. Blue, or course, to match my very favorite Bluebell ;-)

    Blue as Bluebells’ blue would be my wings… Or blue as the sky around me so that I would look like I was floating

    My wings would be a combination of blue and grey, like Raphael’s and Elena’s eyes. :)

    Thanks for the contest. I have most of the series in ebook but actually prefer dead tree. So lookingforward Ashwini & Janvier’s story.

    If it’s okay to sound like someone else, I would like wings with an ombre effect from cobalt to turquoise (had a silk shirt like this years ago and loved it) adding a silver trim on the feathers a la Ilium. However, they would probably overwhelm my little wren-like self and actually end up being something pale and beige/brown. But really, who cares? I would be FLYING!!!

    Wings, either a dark indigo that drips into flame, or a silver/black that switches depending on the light hitting it. Pattern not needed with those!

    Honestly? I don’t know. I love waay too many color/pattern combinations.
    Heck, I have to spend half and hour deciding on which mug to buy and they were just simple colored ones.

    So excited… Archangel’s Shadows will be an awesome birthday present! (My birthday is near the end of November :D)

    I would love to have wings so black that they would have purple highlights under the right light that would shade into indigo/amethyst and then a deep, rich sapphire at the primaries and secondaries. Some flecks of amber and bronze throughout would not go amiss, either.

    I love the Psy-Changeling books, but still need to read the Guild Hunter series. Love all the covers especially this newest one…very refreshing to see cover models that apparently match the actual character descriptions.

    I would probably want wings that were dark purple (almost black) with silver tips.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!!

    Gorgeous cover! I can’t wait to see the UK version. Ash and Janvier at last! :)

    I would love to have wings resembling the colours of sunset.

    AHHHH ONE MORE STEP CLOSER!! Though I’m not that big a fan of Ashwini and Janvier (don’t..really care about their merry go round kind of relationship), there’s gonna be more Elena/Raphael action and that’s good enough. *sigh*

    Omgg! That’s the question I kept asking myself back when I read Angel’s Blood!! Haha, I finally settled with white wings with blue and silver at the part where the wings flow into the shoulders/back but it’s a slow gradient out into the whites. Like rays of the sun but blue and silver on a white background. ;)

    If I had wings, I would like them to be orange, red, yellow, gold, and white and have a pattern of flame so that eveytime they flex or arson flight it would look like fire.

    I meant are in flight – damnable auto correct!

    If I could have any wings it would be a tie between sky coloured wings in all the pretty shades of blue or dark rich entirely black wings :)

    Can’t wait for Ash’s story. hmm. wing color – deep, iridescent purple.

    A dark blue or indigo or black wing looks cool.. don’t you agree?

    Oh gosh, if I had wings, they would be a vibrant red velvet color. Of course, with a light sheen of gold or perhaps, silver! (;

    Oooh, I love this series and pretty much anything Ms. Singh has written! I can’t wait. :)

    My wings would probably be dark blue with a little bit turquoise green or dark gray.

    I’d love wings like Bluebell’s. I think they are beautifully described in the series. I absolutely cannot wait for this book and the next Psy-Changeling book. Thanks for the giveaway!
