Blood Feud Reviews

  • ~Tina~

    I adore this series!

    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.

    is another awesome book by Alyxandra Harvey who delivers the pitch perfect roles, a captivating plot and brings along the funny and eloquent with her stylish writing.

    I enjoyed meeting new characters, going back in time and learning about The Hounds and other Vampire politics that sets the book.

    While I did love the first book a bit more, I still really enjoyed and loved this one as well. I blame Nick and Lucy, can't help it, they are too cute and I was so happy to see them here and there in this book. Oh, and I sooo wanna be there when Lucy comes out of that closet!

    Just saying...;)

    This is Logan and Isabeau's adventure and I think they are both amazingly defined characters!! Logan is like the rest of the Drake brothers, totally kick ass, charming, traditional, vain and sweet-sexy!

    ....Yummy! I really enjoyed his point of view and he definitely makes my swoon-worthy list of hot!

    Isabeau is a fierce character with a complicated past. She's not cold, but there is a definite wall there. Vengeful, loyal and powerful. She's a great role and look forward to seeing her in future reads.

    Overall, I love these books! Action packed, intriguing and romantic! I can't wait for the next one and the next one after that and so on...

    Spunky, Sassy and a whole lot of fun!

    Blood Feud is a welcoming addiction to my favorites.

    Can't wait for 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 started it on the train which was a bad idea because I had to stop reading once I reached work and wait a whole 6 hours until I finished, by the time work was over it was like I needed a really bad sugar fix I was that jumpy to finish work and read (yes that’s how much I wanted to read this book!). With my little rant over I shall get to my review of the book which whilst not being as good as My Love Lies Bleeding was still a page turner for me.

    Blood Feud beings soon after the events that took place in My Love Lies Bleeding. Helena Drake is Queen after having killed Lady Natasha however we soon find out that many are not happy about this change when an assassination attempt on the Queens life is foiled. In order to try and stabilise the vampire community Liam Drake is trying to bring the Hounds (a tribe of reclusive vampires) and Helios-Ra (vampire hunting society) to the bargaining table in order to agree on a treaty with the main goal of stopping Montmartre and the Hel-Blar.

    Just like My Love Lies Bleeding, Blood Feud is told in altering points of view between two characters except this time instead of Lucy and Solange we have Logan (another one of the Drake brothers) and Isabeau St.Croix (a vampire who has suffered a great deal including being buried alive for over 200 years). Logan first meets Isabeau when he is asked to escort her to meet his mother and father, as Isabeau is part of the Hound delegation. Logan takes an immediate fancy to Isabeau telling her “I feel like I know you” basically a couple of hours after meeting her, I mean give it a day or two, sheesh. Isabeau also likes Logan however she’s more torn I suspect because of all she has gone through.

    I really liked how Alyxandra included flashbacks on Isabeau’s previous life before she was turned, I learnt some things about the French Revolution, yay! Isabeau was a strong character who was no wall flower, she’s not one to sit back and let someone else do work for her she was always in the thick of it. She was hell bent on revenge against Greyhaven, the vampire who turned her and left her buried alive for over 200 years, that’s a lot of time to come up with novel ways to punish someone. Logan was very caring and protective of Isabeau which was very sweet, he also can kick some evil vampire butt when he has to though.

    We learn a lot more about the Hounds in this book, particularly about their beliefs which I found interesting. Apparently the next book in the series will be focusing on Helios-Ra, particularly Hunter Wild who we meet in this book.

    Crazy evil Montmartre still wants to marry Solange and is still leaving gifts for her (I mean can you say creepy), and those fine Drake brothers are all here as well as Kieran and Lucy, who was my favourite character from the first book, she cracks me up I love her. Fear not all you Lucy fans she is in this book as well (although not as much as I would have liked) and just as witty as ever. I found myself wanting more time with Lucy and Nicholas in this book whenever they appeared. But alas we cannot always get what we want. However, according to Alyxandra’s website half of books 4 and 5 in the series are told in Lucy’s point of view, so yippee!

    Also, I wasn’t expecting the ending in this book at all. I have no idea what’s going to happen next. Oohh, there is also a nifty family tree included in the book which I found really helpful, it can get confusing trying to remember who is who sometimes.

    Blood Feud is a quick enjoyable read with action, romance and intrigue. I can’t wait to see what Alyxandra has install for us next in Out For Blood.

    This is a really good series. Another action packed and witty installment that had plenty of romance. Alxyandra Harvey has a interesting and unique take on vampires with all the different types. In this one we learn more about the Hounds.

    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

We also get flashbacks from Isabeau past before she was turned which didn't really hold my interest like the rest of the book unfortunately. Isabeau is strong, loyal and doesn't take crap for anyone. Logan is such a sweetie and like all the Drake brothers swoon worthy. Both characters I instantly liked. Although I didn't connect with them as much as I did with Lucy and Nicholas. They just didn't have the same spark. Thankfully Lucy and Nicholas made appearances in this installment filling my craving.

    The ending wraps up nicely but I was suprised by a certain character's death. It makes me wonder where the next installment will go.

    Overall I really enjoyed this, although not quite as much as the first one. I can't wait for Out for Blood and very curious to find out which one of the Drake's story it will be. I hope it is Quinn's.

    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)!

    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 action (I love!) - it was really a fast-paced read which I could barely let go of.

    It is not only an excellent sequel, it can also stand-alone. Alyxandra Harvey continues the plot in Love Lies Bleeding smoothly, without foregoing the development of the relationships (Nicholas-Lucy!) established in its predecessor. If anything, it actually entices any reader who has not yet read Love Lies Bleeding to read it.

    Blood Feud is told in both Logan's and Isabeau's perspectives. The difference in their way of thinking delivered a very insightful glimpse into a tale that was part past and part present. Logan's point of view is always fraught with humour and indignation whilst Isabeau is the more reserved, thoughtful type. Logan is hilariously funny and Isabeau, though trying not to be, is still a girl underneath all the hatred she harbours. They are a wonderful pair together, but I'm afraid I'm still a hard-core Lucy-Nicholas shipper!

    The narrative is not exactly told in alternate POVs, but rather in blocks. You have several chapters of Isabeau's perspective and several of Logan's succeeding that. In between an omniscient narrator relays the past that explains Isabeau's experiences during the French for revolution and elaborates her thirst for revenge. I must say that these chapters are very well-placed, so that they support the continuity of the plot rather than distract the reader from it. They serve also as a form of characterisation of Isabeau. Well described and strongly portrayed, it allows the readers to not only understand, but also sympathise with Isabeau.

    What I did not favour in the general plot would be the lack of characterisation on Logan's part. Isabeau was definitely a developed character; I was not sure Logan is. I certainly would have wanted more on his part. The second and final thing I can say about the plot is that I wanted more romance! Quite difficult to impose on a character such as Isabeau but the fan-girl in me screams more.

    I have once more enjoyed immersing myself in Alyxandra Harvey's vampire world. The Drakes and Lucy are always a pleasure to be with, but with the addition of Isabeau and with the deeper, more action-packed plot, Blood Feud just made it a whole lot better!

    Hmm, I liked book 1 but this was only an okay read for me.

    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. :)
