I’ve always been a huge fan of Alexandra Harvey’s work and The Drake Chronicle series is one of my favourites. As you can all tell, we’re now on book 4 and usually you would expect the series to lose the excitement that it had when it first started, well this is not the case with this series. This series is just as exciting, dangerous and thrilling as ever and it just keeps getting better and better! In Bleeding Hearts the story is told from Lucy’s, Christabel’s & Conner’s point of view. Christabel is now living with Lucy because her mother is in rehab. While she’s there, Lucy tells her the town is run by a dangerous gang, rather than explaining that it’s actually full of Vampires. Christabel doesn’t believe Lucy’s story until she is kidnapped by mistake by the new leader of the Hel-Blar. Lucky for her, Connor Drake comes to her rescue but it only leads to more a dangerous situation. Can Connor save Christabel in time? I loved it! Alyxandra Harvey has done it again with her awesome and dangerous storyline that leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat. With fast paced, exciting and thrilling scenes that can only leave you wanting more. I’ll admit I was a little bit hesitant when I found out a new character was going to be introduced especially Lucy’s cousin. I expected Christabel to be an older, bratty cousin and boy was I surprised. She was actually a down to earth girl who loves reading and I think she was a great addition to the story. Then we see Lucy, who I’ve always loved. And she was just as great as ever. Feisty, determined and strong and I have to say I think she made the right choices in the end. I did feel sorry for her when she felt she was losing her family but I’m glad she had Nicholas’s support to help her get through it. Then finally we have Connor. Come on, who’s not going to like another Drake brother? Connor was just as lovable as his brothers and I loved how protective he was of Christabel. Although I feel there weren’t as many romantic scenes with them as a couple compared to the previous books, I still really enjoyed their relationship and it took a few interesting and unexpected turns. I felt this time around this book was more centred on the story of the Hel-Blar and Drake family and it’s nice to see the story slowly develop right in front of your eyes. I honestly, have no idea what is going to happen next and Alyxandra did throw some shocking curve balls in the story. I have to say as much as I loved this book, I’m still not sure how I feel about Solange’s development as a character. She was the character that most shocked me during trough-out this story and I’m eager to find out what will happen next. Overall, Bleeding Hearts is a fantastic addition to the Drake Chronicles. If Alyxandra Harvey keeps knocking out books as good as these, then you guys won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t read this series, I suggest you do. Because it’s not one you want to miss out on. Thank you to Bloomsbury UK for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
A novel plot. It could have been better written, but I did enjoy it and it's 3 sequels.
I thought this book might make obvious points, but not at all. There's lots of food for thought about what being constantly connected is doing to human beings. For example: how can adolescents develop into independent adults when mom is as near as their cell phone? Should we allow sophisticated robots to take over elder care? Lots of other disturbing questions.
A good option for those learning French, due to the straightforward language and primarily present-tense action. As far as the book itself, it is a powerful classic. If you've gone through life thus far without reading any Camus, isn't it about time?
