    Still, so much dame fun!!

    is another great installment in the Drake Chronicles where we learn more about Kieran's best friend/sister, Hunter Wild, who's a vampire hunter trainee, a kick ass fighter and can't help fall for one of the delicious Drake boys; Quinn.

    I really enjoyed both Hunter and Quinn's POV. Hunter is a very level headed, strong and independent character who isn't one of these damsel in distress kinda gals. Not to say that she isn't vulnerable, but it's awesome to see

    is another great installment in the Drake Chronicles where we learn more about Kieran's best friend/sister, Hunter Wild, who's a vampire hunter trainee, a kick ass fighter and can't help fall for one of the delicious Drake boys; Quinn.

    I really enjoyed both Hunter and Quinn's POV. Hunter is a very level headed, strong and independent character who isn't one of these damsel in distress kinda gals. Not to say that she isn't vulnerable, but it's awesome to see her hold her own.

    Quinn is another brother I just adore, but to be honest I think I'm bias at this point.

    He's your average smart-ass charmer and likes to play the field.

    That is till he meets his match.

    To some these books might be the same old same old, but to me there just great books with some of the best banter, wit and sarcasm that makes me smile and laugh and have a great time with. I adore these characters and the chemistry they give off each other. I also enjoy that each story brings in a new plot and this time we learn more about the Helios-Ra!

    I really enjoyed Quinn and Hunter, they have such a great spark! Even Nick and Lucy stole a few scenes that made me melt as did the rest of the Drakes.

    Simply put, I absolutely adore this world and always look forward to going back to this escape.

    Action packed, mysterious, laugh out loud moments and tones of fun!

    I can't wait to get my hands on the forth book.

    I swear I never want this series to end!

    More Please!

    I always have a blast reading The Drake Chronicles and Out for Blood is no exception. There are certain elements that I require for a good vampire tale and this book ticks all the boxes - fast paced plot, action and adventure, witty dialogue and a delicious romance.

    First of all this is not your average vampire tale. It has such a unique concept with the Helios-Ra, the hounds, the Host, and the Hel-Blar. In this installment Harvey focuses mostly on the Helio-Ra Academy where they train teenagers the skills to kill vampires. While the writing is good and the plot captures your attention (I devoured it in one day), it is a tad bit predictable. Don't get me wrong, there are some little surprises along the way but you know in the end the guy and the girl are going to up end together and of course save the day. But I like it that way. It is nice to have a series that doesn't need to end of a cliffhanger or with a break up.

    Each installment focuses on a different member of The Drake family (expect book one which had Solange and Nicholas Drake). Out For Blood is Quinn Drake and Hunter Wild's story. And let me tell you I have been waiting for Quinn's tale (I have been drooling over him since book 1). Apart from being delicious, he has an energetic attitude and is a big flirt. While Hunter is strong and fierce but a sweetheart. Not only can she kick some butt but she is the type of girl who you would want to be friends with. Quinn and Hunter relationship is filled with lots of flirting making for sizzling chemistry. It also a lot of fun and it is nice change from all those intense paranormal romances.

    We also get to visit some of our favourite couples and characters from the previous books. I love getting a glimpse of what is going on in Lucy and Nicholas' lives. I love their snarky but sweet banter toward each other.

    Overall, Out for Blood won't disappoint fans of this series.

    Here are some other quotes I enjoyed:

    Book 4 - Bleeding Hearts will have 3 POV's Connor (Quinn's twin) Christabel (Lucy's cousin) and also Lucy! So excited as I love Lucy and wherever Lucy is Nicholas is sure to be! They are my favourite couple.

    I really don't know where to start. I love the Drake Chronicles, each book so far centres around one particular member of the Drake family. The family tree shown at the beginning highlights the characters to be focused on while showing the connection to the other characters.

    I really don't feel as if I can go into to much plot detail with this book as it will certainly spoil the enjoyment of reading it yourself. Let me just say that I have not been disappointed yet with any of these books and th

    I really don't feel as if I can go into to much plot detail with this book as it will certainly spoil the enjoyment of reading it yourself. Let me just say that I have not been disappointed yet with any of these books and this is no exception.

    It is a brilliant piece of craftsmanship how Alyxandra Harvey is able to write a story with central characters and yet still progress the other characters that we have already come to know in the previous books. Nicholas and Lucy/Kieran and Soalnge from My Love Lies Bleeding alongside Logan and Isabeau from Blood Feud. Having chatted to a few authors on twitter and knowing that the characters actually talk to them inside their heads; makes me wonder what on earth must be going on inside Alyxandra's head. All the characters are well developed, easy to relate to (you can even sympathize with the Drake's craving for blood) and their interactions are realistic.

    This story revolves around Hunter, the last in a long line of prestigious Helios-Ra agents. Revolving around the inner workings of the Helios-Ra training school. Great insight into how the other side work, giving a rounded picture of both the Vampires and the Helios-Ra. Some incredible twist and turns, leaving the reader wondering just who are the 'enemy'. Courageous, loyal with some kicking martial arts skills, Hunter is a great role model. Here connection to Kieran adds to the storyline and parallels the Quinn/Solange relationship dynamics.

    I absolutely adored how Quinn was portrayed; although not my 'type' you can appreciate his appeal. A true 'ladies' man playing the field with unabashed fervour. That is until he meets Hunter. They are inexplicably draw to each other, although they both try to ignore it initially. It brought to mind the ideal of soul-mates and how you cant fight your destiny.

    I could continue to waffle about how great the Drake Chronicles are but I will spare you. I will leave you with this - Out For Blood is the latest great addition to a phenominal series.

    Reading Out for Blood,was a really tough decision to make.Even though I love this series and the whole Drake family,the second book,Blood Feud kind of reduced the love I had for the series.So long story short,I wasn't at all eager to read this book.

    The blurb is probably the only thing that made me read it after much hesitation.Quinn is a Drake brother I love,the well loved bad boy type.And pairing him with a vampire hunter?Now that sounds interesting.

    The blurb is probably the only thing that made me read it after much hesitation.Quinn is a Drake brother I love,the well loved bad boy type.And pairing him with a vampire hunter?Now that sounds interesting.

    Just when I was into a few pages,I realized this.I am going to love this.Even though Blood Fued had the alternate pov thing,it didn't grab me since I was pretty much annoyed with it.But here,the alternate pov worked very well.Both the main characters are someone I loved,so it made the book so interesting to read.

    Speaking of,I have to mention how much I loved Quinn and Hunter.Just like I told before,I couldn't help but love Quinn,since I always have a soft spot to douchebags.His pov is one I loved so much,especially when he talks about his feelings towards Hunter.When bad boys turn sweet,there's nothing more romantic than that.

    Hunter lives up to her name.I mean,who names their kid,Hunter?Only a Helios Ra agent,I guess.She was so wonderful,and it was a relief to read about someone like that especially after the disappointment Isabeau was.

    I can't say that Hunter and Quinn surpassed Lucy and Nicholas,but they come in a close second.But bookwise I have to say that I love Out for Blood more.It had action that was completely different from the first two,which was refreshing.In one sentence Out For Blood is my favourite Drake Chronicles book.

    Trigger warnings: violence, blood.

    3.5 stars.

    Okay, so here's the thing: this series is ridiculous. Like, there are vampires and vampire hunters. But there are also GOOD vampires and BAD vampires and SUPER BAD vampires. The series basically follows the Good Vampires, aka the Drake Family, who have a butt ton of teenaged kids. Each book follows one of the kids falling in love with someone vaguely inappropriate but ultimately perfect for them.

    This one follows Quinn, who falls for Hunter, who's unsurprisingly a vampire hunter. She's from a long line of vampire hunters and is all "EW GROSS VAMPIRES OH WAIT HE'S HOT" because we all know that the only thing it takes to overcome a lifetime of prejudice is hotness.

    In summary: this series is ridiculous. This book is no exception. That said, it's fluffy and silly and enjoyable. So...there's that.
