Description

I knew the moment he saw the blood staining my shirt and dried on my chin. His fangs lengthened, his eyes gleamed violet, like amethyst beads. He bent forward, dragging the tip of his nose along my exposed throat, tickling. I should have been frightened or disgusted.

I knew the moment he saw the blood staining my shirt and dried on my chin. Instead I just dangled there, comforted. He licked my collarbone. Mmm, fresh, he murmured, his British accent thicker than usual.

ALYXANDRA HARVEY is the author of the Drake Chronicles, Stolen . Passing the Pages on Bleeding Hearts. Alyxandra Harvey, Blood Moon. Thank you for reading books on BookFrom.

ALYXANDRA HARVEY is the author of the Drake Chronicles, Stolen Away, and Haunting Violet. Alyx lives in an old Victorian farmhouse in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, dogs, and a few resident ghosts.

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.

Blood Moon examines the relationship between Lucy and Solange, returning to the series’ roots. The action starts off with Lucy having to taser an ever more unstable Solange. It seems that even being her best friend is no guarantee of her safety. There is nothing she can do to save Nicholas except wait for him to be found, and that does not agree with her heart, or her personality, one little bit. I enjoyed this outing with the Drakes right up until the non-ending, and if I had known about it, I would have held off until January, when Blood Prophesy hits stores. I am by nature impatient, so I hate these waits to see how all of the cliffhangers will play out.

Harvey picks up right where she left off in the previous book Bleeding Hearts. The Drakes are in serious trouble. Solange is changing and not for the better.

I love the series and couldn't wait to continue with Lucy, Nicholas and Solange but the cliffhanger came too soon in a story that was all over the place, and consequently this is a disappointing book. However there is something about the Drake Family and the characters they attract that grab you and keep you reading and I didn't have the heart to give it three stars. I have to be honest and say that I did come very close. The POVs were a little too hard and fast, nothing is resolved and though most of the time we don't mind as reality dictates lives that way but the whole book is unresolved issues,and most of the time we don't really understand the point of the issue. Where was the plot in this as the novel seemed like a filler until the next one. The novel was also far too short and thus so small in face of the big cliffhanger. Of course the author needs a hook for the next book but give us something for this one. Well, to be fair she does in the form of a bonus story about Liam and Helen. Nice although the characters were difficult to recognise but to be fair they had the excuse that they were also very young at the time. Perhaps that story could have been woven in through out Blood Moon as it does seem to mirror Lucy and Nicholas and their relationship, and this would have given more body to the book. Over all I would have rathered more meat, or should I say more blood at this particular time in the Drake Chronicles.

I love the Drake Chronicles, and if you had told me a few years ago that I would be eating up a YA series about vampires, I would have wondered what you had been smoking. The vampire craze never made sense to me, and I find other paranormal beings much more compelling. Give me a good zombie story, with lots of screaming and running for your life, and I’m happy. Give me a vampire story where the vamps aren’t romantic leads but terrifying, ruthless killers, and I might have been interested. But a story about a large brood of single, sexy vampire brothers (and one very confused sister), and I’m, like, yawn, so I have to thank Bloomsbury for sending the first book in this series to me, because they got me totally hooked. Thanks, Bloomsbury!!

Blood Moon picks up right were the previous installment, Bleeding Hearts, left off. Solange is losing her battle against her feral nature, and not even her BFF, Lucy, is safe in her presence. Solange is so unstable that her strong family doesn’t know what to do or how to control her. She lashes out at everyone, and she falls under the sway of Constantine, a powerful vampire with hidden goals of his own. When Nicholas goes missing, not even his sudden disappearance can mend Solange’s broken relationships long enough to find her brother.

I loved this installment, right up until the non-ending. That is non-ending number two for the series, and it’s something that tries my patience. While I am happy that there will be another book in the series, stopping this one almost in mid-sentence is disappointing. Even when a book is part of a series, I still expect each installment to have a beginning and an ending. I expect minor story arcs to get wrapped up, leaving the bigger plot thread for another day. It’s hard to recommend a book to my friends that just slams into a brick wall and ends with a “Well, see ya next time!” The momentum is lost by the time I pick up the next book in a series, and there’s an awkward period of adjustment as I struggle to remember who everyone is and what everything is about. I would rather wait until all of the pieces are released before wading into the thick of things, and I usually advise my friends to wait until a series is complete. Sorry, that’s just the way I roll. I refuse to read another George R R Martin book until A Song Ice and Fire is finished, because I hate the years and years gaps between his books, and that is probably my favorite series.

Blood Moon examines the relationship between Lucy and Solange, returning to the series’ roots. The action starts off with Lucy having to taser an ever more unstable Solange. It seems that even being her best friend is no guarantee of her safety. With Kieran bleeding to death after a ravenous Solange can’t resist feasting on his rich, enticing blood, Lucy is desperate to get him the medical attention he needs, as well as keeping herself from becoming a vampire snack. The constant push and pull between the girls was compelling; Solange doesn’t want to keep striking out at Lucy, but she just can’t help herself. With Constantine there to encourage her drinking fresh from the vein blood, she is spiraling ever faster out of control. Her hunger drives her, and she can’t quench it. And, oh, yeah, she’s hearing a voice in her head, one that urges her to think of no one but herself and to hell with the consequences.

I wish that Nicholas and Lucy had more page time together, because they are my favorite couple. Alas, he’s abducted, making cuddle time impossible. Lucy’s frantic efforts to find him are in vain, and I loved the scene on the school roof, which has her screaming out her fear, rage, and helplessness into the night air. Poor Lucy! I could feel her emotional pain, and I think I, too, would have felt so frustrated that I would have screamed uncontrollably until my eyes bled. For a girl who is accustomed to taking charge, to acting to save her friends, her helplessness was agonizing. For the first time in the series, she gives in to her fear. There is nothing she can do to save Nicholas except wait for him to be found, and that does not agree with her heart, or her personality, one little bit.

I enjoyed this outing with the Drakes right up until the non-ending, and if I had known about it, I would have held off until January, when Blood Prophesy hits stores. I am by nature impatient, so I hate these waits to see how all of the cliffhangers will play out. I’d rather hold off until the final book is released, especially for a series that I love, instead of getting annoyed by these dreaded non-endings. How do you feel about cliffhangers? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Leave a comment and share your thoughts about them.

Grade: B- (minor deduction for the cliffhanger ending)

Oh my, what can I say about this one?

I couldn't wait to read this after the last one ended. The cliffhanger was pretty brutal and left me on the edge of my seat.

Unfortunately even though I love this series, I just didn't find the time to read it until now, even though I got this one the day it released.

I am so glad I finally was able to make time for it. As always, Harvey delivered and came through for me with yet another action packed exciting read that again, left me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.

I was a little cautious going into this one, I won't lie. With the way the last one ended and with Solange acting all vampy, well, to put it mildly, I wasn't too sure I would even like her anymore after reading this one and I really really wanted to like her still. I love all the Drakes and their yumminess (Okay so that isn't a real word, tough, I'm using it).

But let's not get to Solange just yet, first let's talk about Lucy. I adore Lucy. She is such a great character, so head strong and quirky and yes, a smart a&$ but I love her for it. She is one feisty girl that can hang with vamps and not only see them for the kindness some of them have but still be strong enough to kick their butts when they are being bad and hunt them down if their killers. Yep, she is pretty kick butt.

Nicholas, oh how I love thee more each book. Yep, we get not only Lucy's POV in this one but Nicholas' too (and Solange, but again, I will discuss her later). I love all the Drake brothers, I really do but Nicholas is just awesome. He and Quinn are my favorites so I was super excited to see him play a big role in this one. He really is just sweet and kick butt and I love reading about him and Lucy and getting to really see how much he loves her and his family.

I guess I can't avoid it any longer I have to talk about Solange since she is a big part of this book, but, where to begin?

So much happens to her and with her that I don't even know what to say without giving anything away except maybe this, she isn't our Solange anymore and for good reason. I just hope that by the next book she and a certain other Drake will be okay again because if not, it would seriously break my heart.

Constantine. I really really hope he gets what is coming to him and I sincerely hope that we learn more about him. I know he plays a part in this all. He helped Viola I just know it and I hope we find out why.

This is such a fun series. I can't wait to read the last book. I know it will be a bitter sweet journey.
