Everyone who knows me knows I love, love, love my Vamp's so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm having a total blast with this series!
I am loving the chemistry that the Drake family have. I love there voices, I love there banter, punkness, sass, and wit. This is a great cast of characters here to entertain, make you laugh and ready to swoon you over. I love to have fun with the characters I read, so in short, they make me smile, every last one of them.
Blood Feud is ...more
I was hugely excited for the second installment in the Drake Chronicles and am glad to say that it pleased me a lot! I know a lot of you girls out there are excited for it too - you better be, because this is so much better than Love Lies Bleeding (US title: Hearts at Stake)!
Let me start by saying that it surpassed all my expectations. I thought it was going to be a book that was more romance than anything but boy was I wrong. It was a good mix of mystery and ...more
Logan and Isabeau were nice enough but Nick and Lucy are definitely my favorite couple. While reading Blood Feud I constantly found myself wishing for more on those two and I found it a little bit difficult to bring myself to care for the actual main characters of this installment. Still, I'm going to read book 3 since I want to hear more about the Drakes. :)
This is the story of Logan and Isabeau and again we get dual narration which I love. I like knowing what both characters are thinking and feeling. We also get flashbacks from Isabeau past before she was turned which didn't really hold my interest like the rest ...more
I’d been waiting over a week for this book to arrive in my mailbox (bookdepository you were very slow) and then suddenly it appeared (queue trumpets), I squealed a bit when I took it out of the letterbox. Unfortunately I had to work :( so I ...more
I was a little concerned when I noticed that the book was narrated by Isabeau, a vampire Hound Princess on a diplomatic mission to see Helena, and Logan Drake. I was a big fan of Lucy so I wasn't sure about the changes. However, once I started reading it, I was enjoying the story too much to be bothered by it.
I liked Logan, and it was interesting to get his view on what was happening-Solange being ...more
I would have to describe these novels as my "guilty pleasure" vampire novels. (I have a werewolf guilty pleasure too: The Dark Guardian novels.) And I call them guilty pleasures because they aren't exceptionally ...more
Blood Feud starts a week after the events of My Love Lies Bleeding where Helena has become the queen, Montmarte is still after the crown and Solange and the Drakes are holding negotiations with the Helios-Ra and the Hounds.
This book is really good and has the combination of action, humour and romance that I love from Harvey’s books. This book is all about discovering about the characters discovering about themselves ...more

What do you do?
You invite a friend over without telling your guards.

It's been centuries since Isabeau St.Croix survived the French Revolution. Now she's made her way back to the living, and must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who turned her into a vampire and left her buried for two hundred years. That's if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is
as sweet as the revenge she seeks.
Blood Feud is the second installment in the Drake series,and in my opinion is even ...more
Blood Feud picks up almost immediately after the point where Hearts at Stake ends, with the seven Drake brothers ...more
I have to say I warmed to Isabeau straight away. I loved learning of her extensive background and the historical aspects of her story. The flashbacks to her life in Paris during ...more
What made me enjoy Blood Feud was the characters. Isabeau is strong, and fierce, but also so vulnerable at the same time. I would never want to be her because she has faced so many difficulties. I also liked the bits of ...more
Plot: Action-packed and full of adventure, this book does not disappoint. Following two different characters - one of Solange's brothers (Logan) and a Hound named Isabeau - there's the same new romance and it follows the arc of the first story line, just from a different point of view. Another great aspect was the flashbacks into Isabeau's past - having survived the French ...more
'Blood Feud', is the 2nd book in The Drake Chronicles series. I really enjoyed reading it. Again a great little YA read.
This book is Isabeau St. Croix's story and Logan is there for her. Isabeau is a Cwn Mamau , a handmaiden to Kala the Hound Shamanka. Isabeau is driven by her revenge for the man who left her in a coffin for over 200 years, saved by Kala's Hounds.
Liam and Helena are to be the new King and Queen of the Vampires and need to keep the peace that is wavering ...more
Note: These are my personal opinions. I received no outside person comments or opinions.
Much like the first book, I really loved all the action and suspense in every chapter. It kept me on edge and engaged in the book. I just know by after reading the second book its going to be a great series. Its just too bad this series isn't more popular.
The first book was written in two POVs and like that book this one is too. Although, this book is told from the POVs of ...more
BLOOD FEUD is the second book in The Drake Chronicles and delivers up another romantic adventure. As in Hearts At Stake, there are two protagonists and the chapters alternate between them, this time it is Solange's brother Logan Drake and Isabeau, a Hound princess.
I had some issues with the cover of the first Drake Chronicles book, and while this one is a marked improvement, the cover model is a huge miss for Isabeau. She is described in the ...more
In this second book in the series, the romance revolves ...more
Because after reading the amazing book Hearts at Stake,you can't blame me for expecting so much from Blood Feud.I thought that it will be packed with adventure,romance and wonderful characters.
But what I got is a really boring heroine(at least to me) and a Drake brother who wears ...more
Blood Feud follows the story of Isabeau and Logan. Both vampires but Logan was born a vampire and Isabeau was made and left buried for two hundred years. Now she is out for revenge on the man to made her into a vampire. But there is one small thing getting in her way, Logan Drake.
The second in the Drake Chronicles is every bit as wicked as book ...more
I couldn’t wait to enter into the Drake’s world again; the first time I read it and when I chose to reread the books. Instead of switching between Lucy and Solange, like Hearts at Stake, the second installment, Blood Feud, alternated between Logan Drake, one of Solange’s older brothers, and Isabeau, a 232-year-old Hound. When Isabeau showed up at the caves for the coronation she was immediately drawn to Logan for his knowledge in ettique and his sense of style. Their love grew slowly, and she ...more
This book is split between the POV's of Logan and Isabeau, with Isabeau's POV weaving between the present day and her time as a human during the French Revolution.
As all Drake boys, Logan was clearly a gentleman and fell for Isabeau faster than Solange for Kieran. Logan is very sweet in his internal thoughts about Isabeau. ...more
I enjoyed Logan, he was ...more
Now back to the novel at hand, it's centered around Isabeau St. Croix and ...more
I started Blood Feud immediately after Hearts at Stake looking to continue the great action story of the Drake family and the rest of the different types of vampires. Although it does stay with the same storyline of the Drake family always being under attack and Solange being sought after to be queen, this book took quite a different turn as well.
Blood Feud followed mostly Logan and Isabeau, the Hound princess, and even when they got into trouble, we were still taken away from everyone ...more
Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long 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 ...more

Lucy snorted. 'Snow White and the Seven Buttheads. You could give Disney a run for their money.'
Nicholas poked her in the ribs. 'I am not a singing dwarf!'
'No, you're a butthead. Weren't you paying attention?”
"At the farmhouse," Nicholas said with grim satisfaction.
"How'd you manage that?"
"She's in a closet." Solange rolled her eyes.
I stared at Nicholas. "You locked your girlfriend in a closet? Smooth."
"She's going to eviscerate him," Quinn said cheerfully.”
