“If you are looking for a paranormal romance without the heavy weight of the background story arc and the world building then this is probably a great one for you.”
~ Under the Covers

I was a bit hesitant to continue reading this series because the first book didn’t blow me away but I figured I would give it another shot.  The world Ms. Erickson has created and how she’s set up the vampires seems interesting and I wanted to know more.

BLOOD VEIL is the story about the brother of the hero in the first book.  We briefly met him, but knew he had been groomed from birth with the understanding that he would be King and lead his clan.  After the events of the first book, he is looking for revenge and the way to do that is through the still human (not turned) daughter of his known enemy.

I found this book interesting for the same reasons I came back to read this series.  There’s something dark and edgy about the world these vampires live in.  And I like the characters good enough as well.  But it’s still missing that spark that makes me fall in love with a rich paranormal story.  I think there are many things that could be explored and I felt we are not going far enough into that for my taste.

The romance aspect was great, there is chemistry between Idris and Celia felt real and not rushed even though their feelings develop quickly.  Celia as a character was so lovable and I think in the end they were both just looking for love and someone to care for them.  I thought it was a nice pairing.

If you are looking for a paranormal romance without the heavy weight of the background story arc and the world building then this is probably a great one for you.  I wish it had more layers and depth into the world so I could lose myself into it a bit more.  But I think there’s a chance I’ll pick up the next one anyway.

About Megan Erickson

My first stories written in crayon-scrawl on loose-leaf notebook paper were about my childhood pet — a deaf cat with dandruff. And after covering real-life dramas as a journalist, I decided I liked writing my own endings better and switched to fiction. My romance novels full of humor and heart are a far cry from those early scribblings about my hygiene-deficient pet.
I live in southern Pennsylvania, with my husband, two kids and two cats. I like a good pint of beer, a greasy bacon cheeseburger, homemade mac and cheese, and a great book with a happily ever after. When I’m not tapping away on my laptop, I’m probably listening to the characters in my head who just. Won’t. Shut. Up.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
