    I can't wait for the next installment!!!

    A complimentary copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. After reading Blood Guard I was eager to read Idris's story. I knew it would be interesting, and of course I knew what would happen. At the end of Blood Guard, Athan sent Idris to guard the Valarian princess. Yeah, who didn't see this coming, lol. I do wish the story had started a little more in the past, maybe right when Idris finds Celia and started watching her. It's clear when the story starts that Idris is obsessed with Celia, but I would have liked to have seen the why and how of it. Sure, she's pretty and all that stuff to lure a man in, but Idris is planning to use Celia as bait to get to her father, so I wanted to see his struggle early on with his feelings. We do get to see his struggle on page once the two are together, but I wanted more. Even though Celia is basically kidnapped by Idris (after he saves her from a Quellan attack), and she does fear him at first, she also feels drawn to him, which I kind of rolled my eyes at. She is half vampire, half human so I was able to ignore that aspect some, but OMG, she trusts Idris pretty fast. Speaking from a real life "no, vampires aren't real" mentality, if someone kidnaps me and claims to be a vampire, I am going to try and escape, not hold their hand and follow them. Overall though I really did have fun reading this and I can't wait for another installment. I hope it's Amelia's story and I have a suspicion of what her story might be. I hope I am right, because how awesome would it be if [Amelia falls in love with Keno's brother? (hide spoiler)] By the way, there are so many rules in this series about vampires and half vampires. Make sure to pay attention. :) Oh, and the sex was awesome!! :-D

    Steamy romance

    A good 2nd book in the Mission series. I did think that Celia was a little too trusting and compliant. If I had a man kidnap me and tell me what Idris told me, I would have been actively trying to escape. I also thought that Idris had a big chip on his shoulder. The sex scenes were steamy. I was shocked at the twist towards the end of the book and can't wait to see what book 3 will bring.

    This will be the second book by Megan Erickson that I have read and reviewed. I am (now) aware that she has a large back catalog of books to keep me entertained for a while. This is very much in my favor because I can't wait to see where she takes this series. First let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed that Idris and Athan and the other vampires are learning new things and secrets about their kind and humans right along with the humans, Tendra and Ceila. This gives Blood Veil (and Blood Gaurd -book 1) more depth than other vampire books that are being published. It leads to a little bit of mystery for the characters of each book. Book 2 introduces us to Idris ( formally known as the heir apparent in book 1) and Celia who is a damphir (half human half vampire hybrid) she is also the daughter of the Valarian King who is sworn enemies with the Gregorie vampires ( Idris's people). With a little bit of back information on what happened in book 1, readers can easily jump into this books without having read book 1... but why in the world would they want to? While this book has a small selection of supporting characters it is most definitely the main characters that take the show. Idris is strong and determined and holding a mighty big grudge against Celia's father the Valarian King, and as much as he wanted to be the bigger ...vampire? he is having a hard time...even though he really likes the look of Celia. His loyalty may very well be his downfall. Celia is...clueless as what her family history really includes, Having grown up in the foster system she has made her own way in life and pushed away any longing she had for knowledge of her biological families. Celia simply exists. Or did until Idris shows up and things get confusing and then interesting and the chemistry starts to show. Celia is smart and just as determined as Idris, only she wants answers, not revenge. Major points for her because she wasn't the typical female in danger/trouble. Things get serious, not just with Irdris and Celia, but with the two vampire kingdoms. Cannot wait to see what other readers think. Absolutely a wonderful five star read with anticipation of a third book (fingers crossed) .

    This book takes off exactly where book 1 Blood Guard ended. The story focuses on a returning character Idris and Celia who is newly introduced in this book. I think I prefer book 1 more than to this book. We also learn what the Veil is and its something that seems new, that I think I haven't heard before. What happened with Celia's dad caught me off guard. I also caught a "Twilight" reference that I'm not too entirely sure I liked.

    I have loved both books in this series...

    Megan Erickson does not disappoint in the second installment of the Mission series. In Blood Veil we get a closer look at the brother who was groomed to be King of the Gregorie. Under his father's rule, Idris was raised to be King and to follow in his honorable footsteps. Then it was revealed that his father was not so honorable after all and Idris suffered for the betrayals he made against his own clan. Idris is determined to exact revenge on the clan that turned his father against his own people, and Celia Valerie will make the perfect pawn to his plans. I was excited to get to read Idris' story. He was a strong alpha warrior even after everything that went down in the first book, Blood Guard. His single minded goal of revenge was a bit tiresome at times, considering I thought he was the nicer of the two brothers. Boy was I wrong, neither brother is nice!!! But not in a bad way, well not completely anyway. Idris, like Athan, will do whatever it takes to assure that those he cares about are safe and well taken care of. He is lethal and drop dead sexy, a devastating combination. Celia is someone that has been left alone for most of her life. Raised in foster homes and with few friends she is a character that I want to protect from all the evil in the world. She is sweet and kind, the way she visited with Charlie really gave the feel of the person she was. But what I really loved about Celia as a character is that Megan gave her panic attacks, and they were related in such a realistic way that I related to what was happening. I have loved both books in this series and I cannot wait for more! Megan's leap into paranormal romance, if you ask me, has been extremely successful and proven her worth as an author. 4.5 stars
