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.

Kieran knows something is wrong with her but he is not sure what is going on.
Stormi Johnson
There is still love in the relationships and you see how much Nicholas really loves Lucy, but Solange goes crazy.
Kim Chappell
So I'm back to waiting for the next book to figure out what is going to happen.

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.

By P. Eberhardt on December 29, 2012
Format: Paperback
With the first four books under my belt, there was never any doubt that I would read this book. It was really just a matter of when because review book seem to take up so much of my time. When the book six (and final book) was available for review, there was my last motivation for getting this one read sooner rather than later.

I've been patiently watching Solange struggle with her blood change. She's definitely not adapting well. I've known what she's experiencing is not the norm, but just wasn't very sure how far outside that range she was. I sometime wonder if her family wasn't so busy with her mother taking over and the Blood Moon, if she would have gotten help sooner. She's been left to her own thoughts and devices, and I don't think that has helped any. I've been extremely intrigued by the little voice in her head.

The rituals and rules behind the blood moon are very interesting. The tribes are all represented. They have their own guard with a no nonsense policy. With so many vampires in town in bound to attract some attention. The presence have not gone unnoticed by Helio-Ra. Lucy gets a lot of flack at the prestigious vampire hunters school. There's a lot of bad blood there and most are not willing to accept that not all vampires are bad.

Poor Nicholas seems to go through a lot in this book. His loyalty to both Solange and Lucy are both tested to the extremes. Odd that he seems to have see events coming enough to be able to plan for them. I think its a testament to how loyal he is to his family and how much he cares for Lucy. He know that not everything is going to be perfect, but love that he tries.

I did not like Constantine. I was honestly wondering the entire time what it was that had Solange so wrapped up in him.

I first want to say that if you haven't read the other books in this series and you want to then you might not want to read this review. It's hard to talk about this book and not giveaway something.

I love The Drake Chronicles and Alyxandra Harvey is one of my favorite YA authors, but I am not sure if I like how this series is going. It only has one more book then it is finished but I didn't enjoy this book as much as the others, so I am hoping the next one will make up for it.

This book is told mainly in the three POV's of Lucy, Solonge and Nickolas, and I have to admit that Solonge really ticks me off in this book. I found myself wanting to skip over her parts and get back to see what was going on with Lucy or Nicholas. The ending leaves you hanging a little bit and is in Kieran's POV.

If you have read the series you know that Solonge is having a really hard time after she turned into a vampire. With each book she has become worse and worse and now she is really having a hard time with her blood lust. There is a voice in her head tricking her into thinking her family is against her. She also has a vampire Constantine who is not helping her as he keeps feeding her human blood when her family is a non-human blood family. He also keeps putting thoughts into her head about being a princess and accepting her blood lust nature.

We know from the last book that Solonge finally attached her human boyfriend, Kieran who is a Helio-Ra vampire hunter. So now she has broke up with him because she feels bad about it and thinks it is the best way to handle things. Kieran knows something is wrong with her but he is not sure what is going on.

Lucy has joined the Helio-Ra school, but only because she was forced too.

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.
