Tendra works nights bartending, has not got much going for her except for her cat Brex, having just lost her mum, who was her only family. But her whole world changes as she is kidnapped and told that vampires exist and she is part of their legend, their 'Sanguivita', which basically means she is supposed to provide her blood (which is supposed to be special) to feed their King. Her kidnapper, Athan, goes on to prove vampires exist as he is one himself! He is in fact the brother to the King, and it was been his foretold destiny to take Tendra back to his brother.
Things don't quite go to plan, in this world there are good and bad vampires - good being Athan and his clan who get permission to drink the blood of humans, and then there are the bad ones who just kill for the blood. Things get very dicey as the bad ones start to show up to stop Athan and Tendra from getting back to the King.
This was a great story!! I loved the author's take on this vampire world and the characters and world she created. I was taken in after reading the first few pages, I just loved it!!
Tendra is fab, very bad ass and sassy!! She has a lot to cope with and a lot to take in, but doesn't mess about and just gets on with it, and takes no prisoners either!! Athan is hawt!!! Very alpha and protective of Tendra with a very caring side. Their attraction to each other was undeniable, but Tendra is meant for Athan's brother not him!!
A fab read, well written and very entertaining set in a new type of world, I loved every minute and can't wait to read more from this series!!
Tendra has lead a rather nomadic lifestyle, constantly on the move with her mother while she was growing up. Plagued by traumatic incidents that only tie together when her part in an ancient prophecy is revealed following her mothers death.
Battling vampire clans, the fate of humanity and an ancient prophecy all play a part in Blood Guard. Full of action, intrigue and suspense alongside the steamy romance, Blood Guard will have you on the edge of your seat.
Athan is vampire royalty, his lifelong duty has been to guard the catalyst to the prophecy, Tendra, whose blood has special properties for the ruling family heir. Athan is a wonderful character, especially when you consider he is a vampire; he is kind and compassionate with a level of empathy lacking in a lot of humans. Athan makes you consider what it is to be human, is it our ability to show compassion that sets us apart?
Although Tendra has been promised to Athan's brother, they are unable to deny the connection they feel, something that goes far beyond the physical and makes you believe in soul-mates. Events unfold making Athan and Tendra question everything they have learnt about the prophecy and also the roles they play in it. It is difficult to discuss the plot without giving spoilers but believe me it will keep you transfixed.
Blood Guard is a fantastic beginning to the Mission series with the foundation for the next story laid out within the plot. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
This was such a wonderful surprise! This is my first m/f and my first fantasy by Megan Erickson and I was completely won over by the brilliant world building and the intriguing characters.
I’m suffering from a touch of vampire fatigue but this is actually an original and engaging premise (though there are a couple of nods to JR Ward’s first BDB book). The idea of a full on parallel fantasy realm is thought provoking and I love that Athan’s vampire world feels more high fantasy than urban fantasy. With clashing vampire races, treacherous internal politics and some GOT worthy powerplays, I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Athan’s Gregorie Vampire kingdom.
I have to admit that I found Tendra a little bit annoying at the start. All the usual UF tropes are used to establish her as a strong and independent woman - but this is overegged a little and she becomes more likeable as we settle into the story. Similarly, Athan’s revelation as a sexy, dangerous and non-human love interest is a little bit cliched and he too becomes more enjoyable as the story takes over. I loved the forbidden attraction between Athan and Tendra. She is his brother’s promised wife and Athan is determined to honour his family. The result is fantastic sexual tension.
The world building slows down the story at the beginning but I loved the action and intrigue once I understood Athan’s world and the power struggle within. I definitely engaged more with the action than the romance but all the elements of the story work well together.
I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series and I’m excited to see these characters and relationships develop further.
