Bewitching Book Tour Review of Blood of Angels by Marie Treanor


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.


Blood of Angels by Marie Treanor
4 out of 5

Boy was this novel hot!  Between the explosions of bombs and the explosion of lust, you can’t help but want to keep turning the page! 


I had caught a hint that he “liked” liked Elizabeth in the prior series, but it was nice to get a confirmation.  Though I do feel bad for him, I am glad that he had moved on.

I really enjoyed getting to see how he ticked.  He is overly curious, he loves asking questions, he is willing to be whatever someone needs, and he is quick to help those around him. An added plus is that he is pretty creative, and he is intelligent. Together this mix makes a guy who is pretty desirable.

I think of all the hunters that we have met in this series and the prior series, he is the one that is least “tainted by his hate of vampires.  He sees them almost as more of a super human than alien or evil. 


An agoraphobic, but she even with that flaw, she is still one of the strongest characters I’ve read recently.  She protects those she is loyal to and she will risk her fears to help her friends.

Her goal to make herself the strongest seems to be part of her need to be in control.  Not only of her life, but of others as well. 


This very hot novel was more about the desire between Istavan and Angylka, rather than a mystery to be solved or a villain to get rid of (which they still do, but it is a background story, honestly). But what you get is two people who can’t get enough of each other, let alone keep their hands off of each other.  And that wasn’t a bad thing. It was really more about healing (physically & mentally).

I loved the turning point in the novel where both Istavan and Angylka agree to help each other as well as admitting their real interest in each other.

I love how we got a compilation of all my favorite characters from the previous books.  With everyone there, it was a more well-rounded view of what was going on between both sides of the hunters/vampire situation.

And may I just say, I think the ending was so appropriate. 

Highly recommend this book, and I’m looking forward to reading more by Ms. Treanor.

Happy Reading!
