My Review:
The Drake Chronicles resumes, this time following the relationship of Hunter Wild, and Quinn Drake. First of all, can I say how much I love the name Hunter Wild? She is very aptly named, as the first page of the book states. How could this character NOT turn out to be a kick-ass girl, who tries her best to do her family of hunters proud?

Though there were times that Hunter seemed very head-strong, there was never any doubt in my mind while reading, that she is a formidable person. Whoever she decided to be with, would have to match her wits, resourcefulness, and drive. Enter Quinn. Ok, he is a playboy and very full of himself, but I liked how Harvey wrote him as a more typical teen boy. And his being a vampire, did not overwhelm his very human-like personality.

OUT FOR BLOOD has danger, action, mystery and romance from the outset. I was sent on a pretty fast rollercoaster ride through Hunter and Quinn's relationship. And, I enjoyed the ride immensely. There was no wishy-washy love triangle, and the mystery surrounding the students' illnesses, along with the unusual reactions of the Hel-Blar vampires, revealed itself without me feeling that it was too rushed or too drawn-out. Everything that I wanted from a good YA paranormal, I found here.

3.5/5 for plot
4/5 for characters
3.5/5 for language

My Rating: 11/15 (3.5 stars)
