Review

The Drake Chronicles is a series that just keeps getting better and better ... Alyxandra Harvey has created a fun, fast paced and seriously sassy vampire series Daisy Chain Book Reviews Praise for My Love Lies Bleeding: Walk away now if you have issues with clever humorous writing and a bit of reworking of the vampire genre. Nothing about this novel is what you expect, even if you've had your fill of Twilight and Lestat My Favourite Books Praise for Out for Blood: Romance and blood mingle freely in this skilfully plotted vampire drama -- Julia Eccleshare Love Reading 4 Kids Praise for Bleeding Hearts: Underneath the love stories, action and hilarity, these books really do have an underlying murk that never allows readers to sit completely easy. As always, Alyxandra Harvey's writing is a joy to read The Mountains of Instead --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

ALYXANDRA HARVEY is the author of Stolen Away, Haunting Violet, and the Drake Chronicles. When not writing, she is a belly dancer and jewelry-maker. She lives in an old farmhouse with her husband and dogs.www.alyxandraharvey.comwww.thedrakechronicles.com

More About the Author

Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long as they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women's rights, and ice cream.

Among her favourite books are 'The Wood Wife' by Terri Windling, 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte, and of course, 'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen. Elizabeth Bennet is her hero because she's smart and sassy, and Mr. Darcy is, well, yum.
Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with husband and their dogs. She likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.

Nicholas, oh boy did my heart break for him in this book.
Step Into Fiction
There is still love in the relationships and you see how much Nicholas really loves Lucy, but Solange goes crazy.
Kim Chappell
The pacing was slow, the plot was scattered, it ended on a cliffhanger and there was a distracting error.

If you have NOT read the previous books in the DRAKE CHRONICLES please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

First, can you sit there and tell me you didn't just drool all over this cover? Well, maybe not all over it but drool because of it. Lucy and Nicholas *sigh* Seriously, could the cover not be any hotter? Sadly, there wasn't many `hot' scenes between the two as the cover would suggest. But that's OK because there's a novella with those two with plenty of kissing (and vampire killing, of course).

Now, on to the actual story, now that all the drool is cleaned up. Nicholas and Lucy are my absolutely favorites in this series, as they are for a lot of other fans as well. However, there's not one Drake family member I dislike. I'd like to say I love them all as equally but some we don't know as well as other. I am rather fond of Quinn and Connor, to be honest. This book was told from Lucy, Nicholas & Solange's points of view.

If I'm being honest, Solange pissed me off. She pissed me off in the last book too but not as much. I wanted to slap her with a stupid stick...a few times, actually. She's special, we all know this but her behavior was just uncalled for. Or was it? My opinion of Solange changes closer toward the end of the book (I'm still mad at her, though).

Lucy is stuck at the Helios-Ra school and is, in a sense, being bullied by the other students because she's kissing vampires instead of killing them. I think they're just jealous they're single and Lucy's boyfriend is smoking hot. ;-) But seriously, Lucy isn't used to having all this hatred thrown at her and it makes me for an awkward time learning to be a hunter.

Nicholas, oh boy did my heart break for him in this book.

I love the series and couldn't wait to continue with Lucy, Nicholas and Solange but the cliffhanger came too soon in a story that was all over the place, and consequently this is a disappointing book. However there is something about the Drake Family and the characters they attract that grab you and keep you reading and I didn't have the heart to give it three stars. I have to be honest and say that I did come very close. The POVs were a little too hard and fast, nothing is resolved and though most of the time we don't mind as reality dictates lives that way but the whole book is unresolved issues,and most of the time we don't really understand the point of the issue. Where was the plot in this as the novel seemed like a filler until the next one. The novel was also far too short and thus so small in face of the big cliffhanger. Of course the author needs a hook for the next book but give us something for this one. Well, to be fair she does in the form of a bonus story about Liam and Helen. Nice although the characters were difficult to recognise but to be fair they had the excuse that they were also very young at the time. Perhaps that story could have been woven in through out Blood Moon as it does seem to mirror Lucy and Nicholas and their relationship, and this would have given more body to the book. Over all I would have rathered more meat, or should I say more blood at this particular time in the Drake Chronicles.

I have been waiting for this novel since I finished Bleeding Hearts. I've been a fan of this series since Hearts at Stake, and I've thoroughly enjoyed every book. However, Blood Moon fell flat for me. The novel was nothing like Harvey's former work, and Solange has gotten so annoying that I wanted to throw my Kindle out the window every time a chapter said it was being told from her POV (The POV alternated between Lucy, Solange, and Nicholas. Keiran narrated the epilogue). The pacing was slow, the plot was scattered, it ended on a cliffhanger and there was a distracting error. I'm pretty disappointed in this installment. I'll be reading the 6th (and perhaps final?) book in the series, just to see what happens. Maybe it'll be as good as the previous four were.

My biggest pet peeve in this novel was Solange. She has turned into such a brat, I can't stand to read anything from her POV anymore. All she did was whine about how no one understands her and how hard her life is, then she throws fits, makes stupid decisions, and whines some more. Seriously, I wanted to stake her. I finally found out what was going on with her, but it would have been much more effective had that been disclosed earlier in the novel. Then maybe I wouldn't have been so irritated at her. I had to put the book down and walk away during every chapter she narrated. It took me five freaking days to read this book because of that. I really did not enjoy her chapters at all.

There was so much going on in the plot that I couldn't really keep up. Apparently neither could Harvey because a lot of balls seemed to be dropped. Maybe loose ends will be tied up in the next book, but this one ended with nothing being answered.

Blood Moon is the 5th book in the Drake Chronicles, I have gotten really attached to this series, started out not being sure of my feeling for it. I have even come to love some characters. This book has the most suspense. I hope the next book trumps this one. I hope the real Solange can find her way back
