Part five lives here.
Recap: Cnut and Andrea go to Montana, which is both pretty and has farmers that let their cattle wander across the road. The ISIS ranch has already been overrun by Lucipires, and I’m fairly certain I spell that wrong every time I write it, and Cnut teletransports them back in time a hundred years or so. Then Cnut boner-teletransports them back to the Norselands and a motte and bailey castle that won’t exist for another several hundred years. Then he tells everyone to start cleaning and ships Andrea off to the kitchen. And kisses her. And proclaims her the new mistress of the motte and bailey castle that won’t exist for another several hundred years. And when they kiss it smells like peppermint and coconut.
I hate the smell of coconut.

Find part four here.
The story so far (part four summarized): Andrea is afraid of flying and babbles when she flies. Cnut kissed her to shut her up/distract her from her fear while the plane was taking off. Jasper, despite early signs, is kind of a jackass. He dressed up like John Wayne, leading to a brief, confusing moment where I thought John Wayne was a Lucipire, to tell his people that they’re going to Montana to infiltrate ISIS. Because if anyone needs to be infiltrated, it’s ISIS.
I cannot spell infiltrated right on the first try.

In case you missed it, part three is here.
Diving back in on my day off. Chapters five and six.
The story so far: Cnut found Andrea’s sister (sort of) in the previous chapter. He confirmed she was at the ISIS ranch in Montana. He told Andrea he was going to find her. She insisted on coming (along, not… you know. That’ll happen later). Also he magicked himself into her apartment. I’m not sure what parts of vampire lore we’re keeping here, except the fangs and the blood. I’m pretty sure we’ve kept the blood.

Quick rundown of the previous two chapters and prologue, because I did this rather out of order.
Prologue: Cnut was a shitty person when he was a Viking. Percheron horses did not exist during the Viking age. Horse breeds as we knew them did not exist in the Viking age. The Vikings pissed off God and the Archangel Michael was sent to wrangle seven Vikings representing each of the seven deadly sins to fight Lucipires.
Chapter 1: Andrea’s stepmom is racist. Her sister went to a ranch in Montana run by ISIS. Andrea is a chef, but it is also her responsibility to find her sister.
Chapter 2: There is a Reckoning every so often and all the Viking vampire angels have to meet with Michael, who really doesn’t like them. Cnut called someone a slut. I am not impressed. They live in a fake Dracula castle in Pennsylvania. I will never succeed in spelling Pennsylvania right on the first try. Ever.

All right, friends, we’re diving back in to The Angel Wore Fangs. I’ll try to provide a little more plot explanation as we go along, balancing “oh my god don’t tell people everything that happens in the book” with “wtf are you talking about” as best I can.
Chapters one and two can be found in part 1.
I also discovered today that there is a prologue that my Kindle neglected to show me as I was… scrolling? tapping? swiping?… to get to the first page (my bad, but Kindle, c’mon, step up a little bit), so we’re gonna jump back to the prologue, then move on to chapter 3.
I’m a professional at this, guys, for sure.

This is the first (and possibly only; we’ll see how it goes) play by play, where I read a book and record my reactions to it. This was inspired by the Tumblr post of the back copy of The Angel Wore Fangs by Sandra Hill.
I promised Facebook that if someone found the name of the book and if I could get it for less than $5, I would record my reactions to it. So thanks, Danielle.
I have no idea what format this is going to take. We’re going to discover that together.
