This review assumes that the reader has read the previous books in Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series, and does contain spoilers to those books. It is strongly recommended to read this series in order.

They called her the Hummingbird. Admired for her artistry. Cared for by all. Seen as a broken angel, one who had to be protected by all. But she had awakened. She was Sharine. Mother of Illium, a powerful angel. Overseer of Lumia, where angelic treasures were stored. It should have been an artist haven, but the previous angel had traumatized the citizens. She had slowly gained the residents trust, and was settling into this new life when she had been requested by the Cadre, the ruling archangels, to go to Africa and work with the Archangel Titus.

The Hummingbird. They were sending the delicate, artist, angel everyone loved to him. Considering the last angels that had arrived were now running scared from him, Titus didn't foresee anything good with the Hummingbird's arrival. He knew her unhappiness could create enemies. What he needed were warriors to help fight the hybrid monsters their enemy had created and keep the disease they carried from spreading further.

The Hummingbird she might be, but Sharine did not act like the angel Titus and the world had known these centuries. She was stubborn, a fighter, passionate... No, he couldn't dare think of The Hummingbird in that manner. What she quickly was turning into was a partner. Helping him investigate, and when necessary, fight. She was not scared of his loud voice, and willing to stand up to him. She was someone he wanted to be able to turn to forever.

Archangel's Sun shows readers the aftermath of the events in Archangel's War. The Hummingbird has long been a favorite of angels, vampires and readers, and it was thrilling to finally read her story. I loved Titus’s reaction to learning of her arrival, and his expectations of what her needs would be. She befuddled him from his first sighting of her. Seeing Titus's court was fascinating, and I would have liked to have seen more of Lumia. I hope that we will return to see them again.
