Spotlight & Giveaway: Archangel’s Viper by Nalini Singh

Posted September 28th, 2017 by in Blog, Spotlight / 70 comments

Today it is my pleasure to Welcome author Nalini Singh to HJ!

Look what we’ve unearthed! It turns out Venom lost a bet to Dmitri a few years ago and, as a result, had to grant an interview to a reporter from Immortal Insider magazine!


Immortal Insider Magazine EXCLUSIVE!

Have we got a treat for you!
Thanks to the Tower, we have the FIRST EVER interview with one of Raphael’s deadly (deadly sexy that is!) seconds. After a spirited battle at the Immortal Insider office, Missy Lemon won the right to conduct this interview (though she did permit us to slip in a few questions of our own.)
Without further ado, we give you VENOM!

Thanks so much for agreeing to this interview Venom. Do you mind if I call you that?

Venom: It’s my name.

Of course! I’m just so, so delighted to have this opportunity to sit down with you. I’ve never been in the Tower before. It’s quite large. And there are so many powerful vampires.

Venom: Don’t worry. We don’t snack on reporters. Usually.

Such a great sense of humor! Okay, I better ask my questions. I know I only have fifteen minutes. So the first question comes from everyone back at the office. They’d like to know what you look for in a woman.

Venom: I don’t have to look for women. They come to me.

I definitely have no argument there. But how do you choose? Is it… to do with the taste of their blood?

Venom: I was raised a gentleman. I don’t bite and tell.

The girls are just going to swoon over that! And oh, wow, your smile. I need a cold shower right now. I think I’ve forgotten my next question.

Venom: In that case, let’s end the interview and share a drink for the remainder of the fifteen minutes. You can tell me all your most wicked dreams.

Goodness, you make it hard to concentrate, but I promised everyone an interview. Okay, I’ve found my question list. Working for the Tower is something many mortals and immortals alike dream of. Describe what it’s like working in the Tower? How is Dmitri as a boss?

Venom: I don’t work in the Tower. I’m part of the Tower. It is as much in my blood as the land where I was born. As for Dmitri… I’m afraid that would be unprintable.

Is that Dmitri on the balcony outside? Something seems to be making him laugh hysterically. I didn’t know he laughed.

Venom: He won’t be laughing for long. You have six minutes left.

The girls will never forgive me if I don’t ask this next question. What’s so far been your best/most memorable experience since you were Made?

Venom: That one’s easy. I once beat Dmitri so badly in a fight that he whimpered.

I can’t quite imagine that. Gosh. Are there any other Tower secrets you can reveal?

Venom: I keep my friends’ secrets, but I don’t mind revealing that Dmitri is addicted to Hunter’s Prey. He even buys the merchandise. You should see his office. Plastered with Hunter’s Prey posters.

I’m sure the producers of the show will be thrilled to hear that! I know I only have a minute left, but I have one final question. We’ve heard rumors that you can shapeshift into a snake. Is that true?

Venom: I’m going to murder Dmitri. Print that.

Thanks for blogging at HJ!

Book Info:

Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it’s not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman–it’s the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.

Now, someone has put a bounty on her head…

Venom is one of the Seven, Archangel Raphael’s private guard, and he’s as infuriating as he is seductive. A centuries-old vampire, his fangs dispense a poison deadlier than Holly’s. But even if Venom can protect Holly from those hunting her, he might not be able to save himself–because the strange, violent power inside Holly is awakening…

No one is safe.

    Loved the interview. I’m looking forward to reading Venom, and Holly’s story. I hope we see a little bit of Rafeal, Elena, and her grandparents. Michaela is always a treat.

  2. Texas Book Lover

    So good!!! I’m a couple books behind on this series. I think it’s time I correct that!

  3. Aly (@megeara_erinyes)

    I loved the book and the interview made me laugh out loud! I can’t wait to see if Nalini will ever tell us about Dmitri’s face when Venom said he’s a big “Hunter’s Prey” fan

  4. Kira Motilal

    I have been waiting for this book since I read Angel’s Blood 7 years ago. Nalini made me cry when I finally finished it. I lamented that it was over when I wanted more of their story after so long. 1000000000/10 would read again and recommend to everyone (which I have done-to anyone who’ll listen to me).

  5. Amy Ryan

    “I’m going to murder Dmitri print that” I’d like tickets to that sparring match cos no way can he take on Dmitri! Lol looking forward to getting to know Venom better in the new book because you don’t see much of him as he’s always at the refuge! Have the audiobook waiting on my iPod 🙂

  6. Stephanie H

    Thank you Missy and Venom. I’m enjoying your story tremendously. I’m reading it super slowly. Be well, and give Holly a hug from me. Cheers!

  7. Susan Brock

    Lol the interview was awesome lol… I loved the book… and venom is starting to grow on me… Nalini Singh still remains as one of my all time favourite authors

  8. Jessica

    So short! Haha. Makes me want to know what happens right after 🙂 And what did Dmitri put on the line for the bet?

  9. annette miranda

    he is a man of few words, but each word…..happy i read the book where i learned so much more about the mysteries member of Raphael’s Seven. And if you haven’t read it, mysteries revealed, passions ignited, and closer looks at the immortal archangels.

  10. Heather Scully

    Loved this inside view. Venom is a great character. Can’t wait to read his story. ❤

  11. Anita Rókás

    I can’t wait to read the book. Must admit it’s a little bit more because of Holly. I wanna see her become as badass as Elena.

  12. Shannon Capelle

    Loved the interview! I already wanted to read it now i want to much more! Cant wait!

  13. Kitti Kolozs

    I know I will love Venom’s book too. The interview was great I never laughed so much, my throat hurts, but I don’t care it was worth it!

  14. Diane P. DesAutels

    Funny! Nalini Singh’s PNR/UF is all wonderful though, trust me. ‘Looking forward to this latest. One of these days I’ll try her contemporaries, too, even though I don’t read that genre much anymore.
