Review: The Angel Wore Fangs (Deadly Angels #7) by Sandra Hill

New York Times bestselling author Sandra Hill continues her sexy Deadly Angels series, as a Viking vangel’s otherworldly mission pairs him with a beautiful chef who whets his thousand-year-old appetite . . .

Once guilty of the deadly sin of gluttony, thousand-year-old Viking vampire angel Cnut Sigurdsson is now a lean, mean, vampire-devil fighting machine. His new side-job? No biggie: just ridding the world of a threat called ISIS while keeping the evil Lucipires (demon vampires) at bay. So when chef Andrea Stewart hires him to rescue her sister from a cult recruiting terrorists at a Montana dude ranch, vangel turns cowboy. Yeehaw!

The too-tempting mortal insists on accompanying him, surprising Cnut with her bravery at every turn. But with terrorists stalking the ranch in demonoid form, Cnut teletransports Andrea and himself out of danger—accidentally into the tenth-century Norselands. Suddenly, they have to find their way back to the future to save her family and the world . . . and to satisfy their insatiable attraction.

Loved it! Oh my goodness The Angel wore Fangs was such a great book and the irony of Cnut hooking up with a chef is not lost on me. Oh wait, let me warn you first. Do not read this book if you are hungry! I mean it. At the beginning of almost each chapter, you will find a menu. Now while some of the items, like eels in skyr sauce, are completely gag worth, the listing at the beginning of chapter one had me drooling for a solid hour. Yes, there is a point to all the food. As we know, each one of the Sigurdsson brothers are being punished for their deadly sins. Cnut’s sin is Gluttony hence all the food reference. A personal note to the author: Sandra Hill – You. Are. EVIL! I imagine you were rubbing your hands cackling when you were itemizing the more taster items. Salted caramel crème brûlée – Lord have mercy! Now back to the story.

Andrea’s sister is missing and possibly held by ISIS on a Montana dude ranch so she seeks out help to rescue her. Vangel Cnut, once guilty of the deadly sin of gluttony, is now tasked with ridding the world of evil. His latest assignment is take down ISIS and keep the evil Lucipires at bay. When Andrea approaches Cnut for help, he reluctantly agrees. Once they reach the ranch, they find no one there. Suddenly, they are attacked by Lucipires. To save Andrea and escape, Cnut tries to flash away only they find themselves flashing back in time, all the way back to The Norselands and it’s 850 A.D.. They are not quite sure how or why they find themselves in Cnut’s former Viking era, (probably Michael’s doing!) but suspect it has to do with him righting his past wrongs. His people are in midst of a famine so Cnut and Andrea band together to help.

I’m sure the people who saw me reading this book thought I was crazy because I couldn’t stop laughing. Cnut is so sexy and lovable. I did a lot of giggling over his inner dialogs and obsessions with food. Andrea is very sassy and smart. You just know she’s going to be a whole lot of fun when she wear a ‘Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy’ t-shirt to a dude ranch. *Gigglesnorts*Put these two together and you have yummy coconut peppermint goodness. The dialog is snappy and zings along with the situations they find themselves. The secondaries of the past are probably some of my favorites. As much as the story was about Cnut and Andrea, without those lovable secondaries, The Angel Wore Fangs would not have been as entertaining. My favorite was Girda. For me she was the straight-faced comic relief and I really did question at first question if she was going to be a good person or Andrea’s nemesis. However, it took one sentence and I knew Girda and Andrea were going to be besties. It was just a little play on Andrea’s t-shirt, a hilarious conversion to Viking times: ‘Save a Longboat, Ride a Viking’ ROFL!!!

Now while I really enjoyed this book I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the ending. Besides the flash to the future and no real answer explained why they traveled to the past, it felt a bit rushed. Up until then these were working along at a great snappy pace but then Boom! Zed’s there, Boom! Everybody comes forward, BOOM! HEA, the end. Compared to the other ends, that just felt a bit too quick and pat for me.

So now, we have hit the seventh and last sin, which loosely translates into the last book. *Sniff* I really don’t want it to end. Okay I jumped into the series part way through which means I can go back and read the ones I missed but still, seven brother + seven sins = seven books. I really need this series to have at least two more. One for Michael – He really needs to find a lifemate so he can have a nice attitude adjustment. And I really need one for Zebulan – it can’t just end like that for him! Please, pretty please!!! Either way, it has been a fun read and I highly recommend it for everybody.

RT Book Reviews on The Angel Wore Fangs

“An awesome…series! Kept me up late into the night reading. Looking forward to the next installment.” — New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands

“Hill has written another winner featuring her Viking vampire angels. In her fourth in the passion-driven Deadly Angels series, two of the most unlikely characters, Mordr and Miranda, are thrown together and the result is laugh-out-loud humor and unrivaled sex appeal.”

Romantic Times Book Reviews on Kiss of Wrath

“With her clever dialogue, often bawdy situations, and great cast of characters, including a warrior woman, a proverb-spouting wise man/healer from the East, and a saucy cook, Hill has created another wickedly wonderful story.” —Booklist (starred review) on Kiss of Wrath

“The third book in Sandra Hill’s Deadly Angels series, Kiss of Temptation, comes out Tuesday. Along with it comes the temptation to play hooky that day so I can hang out with Ivak, who’s guilty of the sin of lust. Aren’t we all, when it comes to Sandra Hill’s books?”

USA Today on Kiss of Temptation

“Thanks for the laughs and the heartfelt emotions, Ms. Hill. I loved this one and am looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.” —The Romance Reviews on Kiss of Temptation

Earthy, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and lusty, this tenth-century revel takes readers back to a much-less-refined time and is just plain fun. Hill’s (Viking Heat) Viking series are legendary; her fans are sure to enjoy this latest addition.” —Library Journal on Kiss of Surrender

“Sixth in the Deadly Angels series, Even Vampires Get the Blues is entertaining, solid and consistent in its storytelling. Fans of the Vampire Viking Angels series will be pleased.”
