Obsession… a wounded hunter, a damaged vampire.
Six months ago, vampire hunter and inventive genius Istvan nearly died in the seminal battle that would change the relationship between humans and vampires forever.
A year before that, he first encountered sexy vampiress, Angyalka, owner of the Angel Club, favored haunt of the undead. Istvan won that round, but when he recklessly seeks her out again in search of the secret of angels, he’s alone and so exhausted he can barely stand, let alone fight vampires. Plus Angyalka’s out for revenge, and very happy to use his powerful sexual attraction to her…
But Angyalka has her own secret weaknesses as well as terrifying strengths even she doesn’t understand. Their battle becomes one of wits and sex, but when someone bombs the club, they fight together to contain all the threats closing in on the Angel, from humans and vampires, including the sadistic killer who could just be dangerous enough to finally topple undead overlord Saloman.
As Istvan struggles to harness the mysterious power of angels, Angyalka needs a deeper strength to send away the fascinating hunter who delivers on all her deepest sensual desires and yet can’t come to terms with her vampire nature.
Worldbuilding: I loved the blend of paranormal elements – vampires, magic, hunters – and the settings of the novel, especially the Angel Club.
Characters: Angyalka was one of the characters I remember since I read the first novel in this series – Blood Guilt, like a year and a half ago. Something about her and her club stuck with me, and I was thrilled to read about her again. She’s the perfect blend of powerful, kickass, vulnerable and charismatic. I was thrilled with the changes she went through during Blood of Angels and she deserved to get her happy for now, if not happily ever after.
Istvan was that perfect blend of brawn and brain, with the silent, brooding, intense vibe I get really thrilled about. I loved that he had some issues of his own to deal with, so in a way this a romance between recovering warriors. They helped each other out and made perfect sense together.
Their chemistry was awesome and the slow burn type of romance felt right, with all their reluctance since just a novel ago (lol) they were standing on different sides of battle lines and now they find themselves on the same one, pretty much.
Plot: The story had a rapid rhythm with enough action and tension to keep on the edge of my seat, but without becoming too agitated.
Writing:Third person narrative, Angyalka and Istvan’s POV.
Curb Appeal: Awesome cover, hooking blurb – good impulsive buy candidate, especially considering I’ve read Marie Treanor’s work before and loved it.
All in all, this was an awesome read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn’t go fangirl mode on it, but then again it is start of January and you know how that is, lol. I’m saying I might not be in the fangirling mood, but I had a blast reading this novel. If you’re into vampires, romance and some PNR power-struggle, read this 😀
