Short Recap ~ It’s not easy being a Vampire Angel.
No one knows that better than Trond Sigurdsson. In the centuries since he last went out drinking and wenching with his Viking buds, Trond has been a gladiator, a cowboy, a ditch digger . . . even a sheik. But now he’s the baddest of them all: a kick-ass Navy SEAL kicking butts of terrorist immortals with the help of his hotter-than-Hades female partner, police officer-turned-Special Forces operative Nicole Tasso–whom Trond dearly hopes to “partner” with very shortly in a whole different way.
The “cop” part of Nicole tells her there’s something bizarre about her gorgeous godlike teammate. But her “all-woman” side can’t help wondering how great it would be to have a virile Viking in her bed. Trond has secrets galore, but Nicole feels certain she can dig them out–and really get to the heart of this powerful, unnerving stranger whom she may be risking her soul to love.(recap courtesy of goodreads.com )
Since I’ve been on this ‘vampire’ kick as of late, this falls into that category, well, in a way. Trond is not your typical ‘vampire’; he is a ‘vangel”- Viking Vampire Angel. Not what you would expect. Trond was shall we say ‘recruited’ by the Archangel Michael; definitely NOT your typical vampire.
Nicole, is one tough lady; I immediately liked her from the beginning, her spunk, strength, attitude, and how she knows who she is now and where she wants to be and where she wants to go. Trond has his hands full and with the ‘almost sex’ she is not the only one teased in this novel, the reader is as well. At one point, I was experiencing de je vue with the ‘almost’, yet, the plot pulled through and tey get an opportunity thanks to……. (no spoilers here)
Reading this novel kept me once again up reading late as others have, yet, this one had a unique presence in the evenings; when you are dealing with evil demons, vangels, SEALs, WEALS, one of bin Ladin’s son’s, a family estranged, one Archangel, things get interesting to say the least, not to mention tricky, yet they all meld into one strong and powerful story that will keep you guessing and reading not only late into the night, but to read ‘just one more chapter’, you won’t be stopping at just one more.
This was the first novel I have read by Sandra Hill and it will not be the last; I am hooked on her and this series now. I cannot wait to see what she does next and who she brings to the pages.
