It was nice. You know, until the screaming.
And that kind of scream in Violet Hill could mean only one thing. Blood Moon is more like a really long chapter than an actual book. Remember my Storm review from about a month ago in which I kept going on and on about the four hot Merrick brothers?
Quinn finally abandoned his womanizing ways for Hunter, a vampire hunter and a student at the Helios-Ra academy. Logan is bound to Isaboe, a Hound vampire that survived the French Revolution. Everyone misses the good old days when the Drake family was living in exile in Violet Hill and all they had to worry about were the Helios-Ra agents roaming the woods.
Everyone, including me. I understand how a series works, I know that Harvey needed to up the stakes so close to the series finale, but the sheer number of tribes and groups, human and vampire both, that were going against the Drakes was staggering, and I was confused and lost most of the time.
Nicholas is not far behind, he is the perfect brother, the perfect young vampire NOT of the vegetarian kind and a perfect boyfriend to Lucy. I loved seeing his family and Lucy through his eyes again. Solange, on the other hand, was a disappointment. The last book is called Blood Prophecy and should be out in January Also posted at The Nocturnal Library View all 4 comments. Harvey finally did it, she ended this book on a cliffy and I need the next book now!!
Wow, this book was so so good. Blood Moon is probably the most darkest and serious of the Drake Chronicles. Something that I'm not use to since Harvey has always balanced these books with just the right amount of humor, romance and excitement.
But this book felt heart pounding and fast paced more then anything else. I kinda missed the humor, the Drake banter and the romance. Not to say that I didn' 4. Not to say that I didn't love this one, it just felt It was so good to see Solange, Lucy and Nick's point of view in this one since we haven't seen it since the first. I gotta tell ya, for awhile there I've been really frustrated with Solange character.
It's like she went through the blood-change and then went darker and darker with ever book and I couldn't understand why. So it was really great to finally get some understanding, even though I'm still not sure about everything that went down in this book. I also love anything and everything Nick and Lucy and even though they only had two scenes together and I missed them so so much I still thought it was great to see what was going on around their perspective.
What happened to Nick broke my heart a little and now I'm dying to know what the hell happened!! As for the ending? Harvey usually wrapps up each book nicely but she left me shocked and thrilled. My only hope is that the last book will also be in Solange, Lucy and Nick's pov again. I need to be inside these three heads.
Any other character at this point would feel annoying and frustrating. All in all, another Harvey win! Exhilarating, intriguing and completely compelling from start to finish! View 1 comment. This Drake Chronicle has done a complete since the last book. Goodbye to the cutesie, lighthearted fun of falling in love - super fast - with vampires and hello to a scary, creepy and surprisingly deep novel..
Although I really enjoyed the previous books with the all the Drakes and their love interests, I loved coming back to Lucy and Nicholas' points of views in Blood Moon - they're the ones I fell in love with! Especially as we, as the readers, don't have to see the repetitive nature of fa This Drake Chronicle has done a complete since the last book.
Especially as we, as the readers, don't have to see the repetitive nature of falling for a Drake vampire, the romance in this book is just building on what already existed which is a really nice change.
There is a whole lot more viscous blood sucking to say the least. I don't want to give too much away because if you've read the previous books and haven't read this yet then the feel of the book is actually a pleasant surprise. If you haven't read any of the Drake Chronicles then.. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to send you away! Come back five books later! The plot was also awesome but only when I finally remembered what had happened in the last book, I was seriously lost in the beginning of Blood Moon but once I remembered - finally - and got into it The story line is so unpredictable and although it was a little weird jumping between the points of views of Nicholas, Lucy and Solange and my itty bitty brain couldn't handle the sort of jumps between sub plots at first, it was okay.
I got it in the end. I haven't said that yet, have I? I do by the way, both of them, Lucy and Nicholas, they're my favourite characters in the whole series. Their cute little moments, their banter together with the insane loyalty and love between them makes this book incredibly easy to lose yourself in.
While I praise the characters of Lucy and Nicholas, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about many of the other characters, Jenna, Hunter, Connor, Kieran I can't say I liked Solange very much at all.
I understand the way she acted and the things she did, she obviously goes through a hell of a lot in this book but I don't think I liked Solange very much in the first book either.
I thought of her as immature and irritating as a character in the first book, My Love Lies Bleeding or Hearts at Stake if you aren't British like-a me and pretty much the same in Blood Moon. I found myself skim reading most of the chapters in Solange's point of view which wasn't the best idea as I just had to read those parts again to understand the story.
Overall, pretty mixed feelings about Blood Moon. On one hand, awesome plot and some amazing characters and on the other hand, not really liking one of the main characters. I am definitely going to be reading the next book though, especially as the misleading Lost Girls at the end made me think I still had a couple of pages left and I thought Harvey would explain what happened but no, she just decided to leave the book on an incredible cliffhanger.

Blood Moon / Alyxandra Harvey.
The Drake Chronicles is a very very very great Vampire series! Especially because they are a new breed of vampire and it is completely awesome! After reading I doubt that anyone has not fallen in love with a Drake What a way to start a book and with Lucy as the voice too. Ah I do love Lucy : This series is awesome and despite it being about a much used and abused subject in literature, Alyxandra Harvey has managed to keep this
