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.

I couldn't wait to read this after the last one ended. The cliffhanger was pretty brutal and left me on the edge of my seat.
Unfortunately even though I love this series, I just didn't find the time to read it until now, even though I got this one the day it released.
I am so glad I finally was able to make time for it. As always, Harvey delivered and came through for me with yet another action packed exciting read that again, left me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.
I was a little cautious going into this one, I won't lie. With the way the last one ended and with Solange acting all vampy, well, to put it mildly, I wasn't too sure I would even like her anymore after reading this one and I really really wanted to like her still. I love all the Drakes and their yumminess (Okay so that isn't a real word, tough, I'm using it).
But let's not get to Solange just yet, first let's talk about Lucy. I adore Lucy. She is such a great character, so head strong and quirky and yes, a smart a&$ but I love her for it. She is one feisty girl that can hang with vamps and not only see them for the kindness some of them have but still be strong enough to kick their butts when they are being bad and hunt them down if their killers. Yep, she is pretty kick butt.
Nicholas, oh how I love thee more each book. Yep, we get not only Lucy's POV in this one but Nicholas' too (and Solange, but again, I will discuss her later). I love all the Drake brothers, I really do but Nicholas is just awesome. He and Quinn are my favorites so I was super excited to see him play a big role in this one. He really is just sweet and kick butt and I love reading about him and Lucy and getting to really see how much he loves her and his family.
I guess I can't avoid it any longer I have to talk about Solange since she is a big part of this book, but, where to begin?
So much happens to her and with her that I don't even know what to say without giving anything away except maybe this, she isn't our Solange anymore and for good reason. I just hope that by the next book she and a certain other Drake will be okay again because if not, it would seriously break my heart.
Constantine. I really really hope he gets what is coming to him and I sincerely hope that we learn more about him. I know he plays a part in this all. He helped Viola I just know it and I hope we find out why.
This is such a fun series. I can't wait to read the last book. I know it will be a bitter sweet journey.
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. The Drakes thinks it to dangerous for her to be around them right now. Being at a vampire hunter school and dating a vampire only subjects her to bullying by her classmates. Even though she is not the only hunter to be dating a vampire she has grown up with the vampires and so is seen to be more of a traitor. Lucy is still my favorite character out of all the characters in the series, she is just tough and sassy and I love it.
Nicholas is the next to the youngest Drake and very loyal to Solonge, but he is also Lucy's boyfriend so he is having some mixed emotions on what to do during Solonges feral state and at the end of the book I sort of felt sorry for the guy. Nicholas is also my favorite Drake.
The book is all based around Solonge's mother being crowned Queen at the Blood Moon, lots of vampires have come to town and not all of them are nice like the Drakes. So there is a lot of chaos in this book between the drama of Solonge, humans and vampires both being kidnapped, new more dangers huntsman in town, etc. I really don't feel that this is the best book in the series and I was a little disappointed, but I still enjoyed it enough to want to get right in to seeing how the series will end. If you haven't read the series I would recommend you give it a try.
