Vampires for the win! This was an incredibly entertaining, passionate paranormal romance story and I loved every second of it. :-)



 Blood Guard

Blood Guard (Mission #1) by Megan Erickson


Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.

Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .

Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.


5 out of 5 stars

I LOVE a good vampire story and this was freaking FANTASTIC! I love the world that was introduced, the characters, the details, the drama, and the passion. It was all so exciting!

Tendra and Athan were awesome. I loved how they met and their interactions. I loved Tendra, she was fierce! I loved her attitude and determination in the midst of this very crazy situation and I thought she was a great heroine. And Athan, oh my! All gruff attitude and devoted to his task I loved how loyal he was. I loved their dialogue, it was incredibly entertaining.

I loved the conflict that Athan was facing as he and Tendra grew closer. I loved watching his attitude lighten up as he started to get to know her and care for her. He was so sweet, protective and sexy. I really enjoyed watching Tendra grow and really find her place. Athan and Tendra were fun together, teasing, and sweet. I loved that growing attraction and heat between the two. They live in such a passionate world, blood and sex seem to go hand in hand, and I love it when that collided for them. Seriously! I was cheering, I was so excited for that moment to finally happen.

I loved all the details of Mission and learning all the ins and outs of how it was set up. I am a big fan of vampire stories and can get kind of picky so I really thought the author did a fantastic job pulling me in to everything and making it feel fresh. I was excited while reading, fascinated by the world and the dynamic. I loved the drama and there were some really excellent fight scene. This was a serious page turner for me.

A great cast of characters was introduced as well as a story that I assume will continue on through the series. I am so thrilled for more. The next book, Blood Veil, is already on my to-read list. Loved the writing and story. I thought it had a great flow and I loved the dual POVs. Great descriptions and details. I am so excited for what's to come!

This story was on the lighter side, entertaining and sexy but it had just the right amount of grit and drama to round it out and make it an excellent read. This was my first Megan Erickson book and it certainly won’t be my last. This was awesome!
