Review: Blood Feud
Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis: 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.
My Thoughts: This installment expounds upon the Vamp mythology that was begun in My Love Lies Bleeding. This time it's older Brother Logan, and a Hound "princess" called Isabeau that tell the story. Once again we have equal parts action/adventure and romance as well as more backstory on the Hounds. The over-arcing story of the Vampire Crown advances as well. A sweet and compelling story made for a one-sitting read. Really like these stories and will continue them in the future.
