Blood Feud (The Drake Chronicles #2)

Hardcover, 272 pages
Published June 22nd 2010 by Bloomsbury US (first published June 5th 2010) 
Review by Amber I
The action and romance continue as the Drakes face a new vampire with a 200-year-old grudge. It’s been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she’s made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That’s if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.

The clans are gathering for Helena’s royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha’s reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.

This second adventure in the Drake Chronicles—told from both Logan’s and Isabeau’s perspectives—has all the same butt-kicking action, heart-pounding romances and snarky humor that readers loved in Hearts at Stake, as well as exciting new revelations about the vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.
My Thoughts 
I did like this book. But I honestly really liked the first one a lot better. This one is centered on Logan and Isabeau and there fast growing connection. And I just don't like all that instant falling in love stuff. It just happened to fast for me and that just bothers me. I really really missed Lucy. I could use more of her story. And I loved how in the first book we had the 2 girls narrating so we got a lot more of a story. 
It was a pretty action based book and we got more into some magic parts in the story. I really liked most of the other parts of the story besides the love story. I loved seeing the family again and all the brothers interacting. The mom is still pretty kick ass and she is now the queen. I will be reading the next book.

3 out of 5 stars
