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)

    If i had wings, they would be blue and gold and look like a butterfly.

  2. 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.

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

    If I could chose my wings, I would go for a flame pattern similar to this

  4. Kim
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:30:26

    Light blue and white to match the sky and clouds.

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:40:55

    I’d love to have black wings with a dusting of blue, but I’m too pale, so I’ll go with white and gold instead!

  7. Moira
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 13:44:13

    The colors of the darkest of nights with a hint of the Alaskan areola borealis at the tips of my feathers. Or A lazuli royal blue mixed with purple stardust-ish at the tips. :)

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

    I think I’d like silver wings with pale blue at the tips.

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

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

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

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

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

    ombre from white to deep ruby red :) (basically, this dress:

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

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

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

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

  26. 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…

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

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

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

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

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

  31. 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!

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

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

  33. 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.

  34. Tina
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:09:18

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

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

  37. 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. ;)

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

    November is too far away.

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

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

  40. 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!

  41. 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

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

    White with gold tips.

  43. Dana

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 15:47:18

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

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

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

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

  54. 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!

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

    Favorite Series!!!!

  56. Kelly

  57. 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. :)

  58. 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

  59. 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.

  60. 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!

  61. 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. :)

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

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

  63. 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.

  64. 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!

  65. 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.

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

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

    Except in shades of blue and purple and possibly green.

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

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

  68. 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

  69. 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

  70. 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.

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

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

  72. 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.

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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.

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

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

  77. 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.

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

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

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

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

  80. 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 *nods* That would be my fav. kind.
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Friday!

  81. 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:

    The cover is gorgeous! Ashwini and Janvier look great.

  82. 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.

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

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

  84. 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.

  85. 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.

  86. 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! ^_^

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

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

  88. 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!

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

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

  90. 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.

  91. 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.

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

    I’d have purple wings.

    I cannot wait for this book!!!

  93. 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.

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

    Awesome! Can’t wait!

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

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

  96. 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…

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

    I would have crimson wings like so:

  98. Gaby Ortiz
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 18:15:25
    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.

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

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

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

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

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

    Gunmetal with silver and black accents.

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

  103. 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.

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

    Blue for sure

    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.

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

    Pure black wings tipped with gold.

  109. kayla

  111. 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. ;)

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

    I would like white wings with dark blue edges

  113. Bibi

  114. 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

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

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

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

    My wings would be burgundy with splashes of purple

  118. 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.

  119. Lynnette

    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.

    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!!

    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.
    Love the Guild Hunter series!

    Mar 06, 2014 @ 20:10:14

    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!

  132. Cheryl C.
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 20:11:52

    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.

  140. Stephanie Judice
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 20:58:49

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

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

    wings the color of the sunset

  142. Gloria

  143. 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.

  144. 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.

  145. 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:

  146. Jacqueline
    Mar 06, 2014 @ 21:35:06

    I’d love wings that had feathers that were a mix of gold and black filaments.

    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:

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

  151. 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!

  153. 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 :)

  154. 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!

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

    Can’t wait! Thanks for the opportunity.

  157. 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 :)

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

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

  159. 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!

  160. 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.

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

    Love the friggin cover! They are both so SCORCHING HOT!

  162. 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. :)

  163. 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

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

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

  165. 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

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

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

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

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

  168. 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.

  169. 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!

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

    Wings the colour of a soft sunset with silver tips!

  171. 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.

  172. 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

  173. 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.

  174. 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!

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

    So cool !

  176. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  180. 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.

  181. 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.

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

    Bronze with black specks

  183. 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

  191. 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’!

  192. 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

  193. 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.

  194. Kat
    Mar 07, 2014 @ 08:54:35

    So excited to read about these two! And my wings would be red and black.

  195. M L
