Blood Feud

The action and romance continue as the Drakes face a new vampire with a 200-year-old grudge
It’s been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she’s made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That’s if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.

The clans are gathering for Helena’s royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha’s reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.
This second adventure in the Drake Chronicles—told from both Logan’s and Isabeau’s perspectives—has all the same butt-kicking action, heart-pounding romances and snarky humor that readers loved in Hearts at Stake, as well as exciting new revelations about the vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.


I am really feeling this series! I think Logan is my favorite so far. I loved his personality and the way he just accepted Isabeau for who she is. He was not really worried about her and could some how sense she was not the enemy. He admits right away that it's just something about Isabeau that pulls him to her. I am a huge fan of witches and magic, so it was also a plus to read about all the magic Isabeau knew about.

The characters are awesome! Lucy is still my favorite of course, but I now have a spot for Isabeau. The Plot was very entertaining and fun to read. Alyxandra's writing is also really good. While you're reading, everything just seems to run so smoothly.

Only thing I had a little trouble with was the all the different names their enemies had. I got thrown off a bit on who was fighting who and would have to go back and read who the Hunter was etc. Other than that I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book and learn more about The Drake family. Great Read!

  1. Wow, great review! I didn't think much of the series -- well, I mean, I passed it at a glance is what I mean -- but now I'm intrigued. Witches? Magic? Sign me up! Haha. This is now in my tbr. :) Thanks for the recommendation!
