Book Review - Blood Feud (The Drake Chronicles book 2) by Alyxandra Harvey
It has 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 written as a follow on from the much loved My Heart Lies Bleeding (a.k.a Hearts at Stake). She writes similarly to the first book where we heard things from Lucy and Solange's perspective whereas in the second we hear it from Logan's and Isabeau perspective.
The Characters I found where very simple this time around, Isabeau being a hound is slightly more in depth then Logan's we learn about what life is like as a hound, she is very self preserved and tries not to show anyone her weaknesses. I was shocked how long it took me to warm up to her as I thought I would like her the most but I only warmed up to her when hers and Logan's relationship developed. Logan however was the more emotional one and he tended to want his feelings out there, it was enjoyable learning about him but I still prefer Nicholas.
Overall, I liked Blood Feud. I just wasn't enthralled in it as I was with My Heart Lies Bleeding/Hearts At Stake. I believe my loyalty lies with Lucy and Solange but I did enjoy the storyline and I'm happy to hear that the next book will be from the Hunter's perspective as I'm liking the idea that Alyxandra will have a book on each species it will equal to a greater understanding.
