Synopsis


Vikings, Navy SEALs, Viking vampire angels, oh my! All three are featured inEven Vampires Get the Blues, the sixth sizzling entry in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sandra Hill’s Deadly Angels series. The series focuses on the oh-so-sexy Vangels—an elite group of Vikings-turned-vampire/angels as punishment for their vigorous embodiment of the seven deadly sins ages ago.

Even Vampires Get the Blues features Harek Sigurdsson, who was a brilliant Viking with an insatiable hunger for wealth and all its trappings. Now a Vangel, his otherworldly mission teams him with a Navy SEAL who’s more than his match— she’s his predestined mate…

The fact that vampire angel Harek was a Norseman in his mortal life doesn’t make thawing out after exile in Siberia any easier. But things heat up when his search for evil Lucipires connects him with Camille Dumaine, a human who thrums with sensual energy that can mean only one thing: she’s the mate Harek’s been seeking for centuries…

The SEALs call her “Camo” for her ability to blend into a crowd— yet Harek’s intense blue gaze singles Camille out like a white-hot spotlight. The security wiz was hired to help bring down a ruthless band of international terrorists, but Camille senses an unspoken agenda— besides Harek’s bold declaration that she’s his “destiny.” It’s just Camille’s luck that the sexiest man she’s ever met may also be… a vampire! Smart, sexy, and funny, Sandra Hill fans are sure to love the latest Deadly Angels book!

Review

This book was a first that I've read of Sandra Hill, which also makes it the first book that I've read from her Deadly Angels series. And Sandra, you have a new fan! And the fact that I've read the others books in this series didn't hinder my understanding of what was going on. 

It's been so long since I've read a vampire book and after finishing Even Vampires Get the Blues, I'm so eager to read the rest in the series. I'm so intrigued about the rest of Harek's brothers and how their story came to be.

Harek, the greedy Viking turned vangel (vampire and angel) who has zero plans of ever settling down. After a visit from THE Archangel, Michael, things tend to go a bit south for Harek. I guess it all depends on how you look at it. Harek has a job of his own to do for the higher ups, but takes his lovely time doing things. After spending some wonderful time in Siberia, he is sent to work with the Navy SEALS in California. At this point, anything to get him out of cold and dreary Siberia, right?

And that's when Camille aka 'Camo' comes in! She's a badass Navy SEAL, but part of a separate team called WEALS, very interesting concept might I add. She's not looking to settle down either and that's what I called match-made in heaven with her and Harek. They're just two peas in the pods, from the beginning, it's obvious that they're fated to each other. But they constantly fight against that thought, which makes a very entertaining story! 

Seriously, the dialogue between the two is quite funny. And the steam factor just rolls off of them, you'll keep wondering when they'll just give in. The tip toe near that line, you'll just be yelling them to hurry up and get on with it! 

Aside from all the funny dialogue, there's some issues that are currently going on in this world mentioned in this book. Which toes along the line of reality and something much more serious. I like that it was mentioned because I always think that people need to know the truth of what's really going on out there in the world.

I thoroughly enjoyed this ready, truly entertaining from the beginning. And you can bet that I'll be adding the other vangels to my TBR list.
