''The Blood Angels'' is a series of novels and short stories by author JamesSwallow. The Blood Angels are a ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' chapter of {{Space Marine}}s, and the novels cover the early history of the Chapter and more specifically, the stories of Battle-Brothers Arkio and Rafen as Arkio declares himself to be a reincarnation of the Chapter Primarch, Sanguinus. Later novels ''Black Tide'' and ''Red Fury'' deal more with the Chapters ongoing struggles with its own flaws, the Red Thirst and the Black Fury, which at times threaten the purity of Battle-Brothers and could bring about the collapse of the Chapter as a whole; either through an inability to sustain the losses suffered due to the latter or through the former being perceived as [[TheCorruption the Taint of Chaos]] on them and their successor Chapters.

They also have some Romanian/stereotypical Vampire influences.
