In Singh’s world, humans are sharing the world with angels, archangels and vampires. These beings are more powerful, practically physically perfect and far more powerful. This reminds me of how humans find themselves being compared to invading aliens in The Host – they seem perfect compared to us: there’s no crime, no intolerance, no hatred, etc.
However, in The Guild Hunter series, our heroine discovers that the angels and archangels aren’t all they seem and they in fact live in a very dangerous, violent and sometimes depressing world. Many angels and archangels, however, look down on humanity, and see humans as nothing but pets or pests. This also reminds me of how a few of the aliens few humans, while others can see the positive aspects of humanity.
