Early Review: Blood Guard (Mission #1) by Megan Erickson

Sep 5, 2017

Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.

Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .

Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.


Blood Guard is the first book in Megan Erickson’s Mission Series and I really enjoyed it! I’ve always loved the paranormal genre, vampires being one of my favorites. Megan Erickson is also one of my auto-buy authors, so I was very much looking forward to reading this new series. I love that she writes in multiple genres; contemporary, M/M and paranormal!

I really liked both of the main characters.Tendra was a kick-ass heroine and I loved her personality. Athan was so protective of Tendra and she gets to him like no other human or vampire ever has. They are drawn to each other right from the beginning. But Tendra is promised to his brother, the future king. She is destined to be the queen of the clan. As they journey together to Athan’s family compound and try and fight off the bad vampires, it gets harder and harder for them to deny what’s between them. Will Athan be able to let her go when they reach the compound?

A storyline that I was into from the very beginning and a few surprises, Blood Guard is a great start to Megan’s new series. Definitely looking forward to the next book!
