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 Montmartre—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.


 
BOOK REVIEW:
 
'Blood Feud', is the 2nd book in The Drake Chronicles series. I really enjoyed reading it. Again a great little YA read.
 
This book is Isabeau St. Croix's story and Logan is there for her.  Isabeau is a Cwn Mamau , a handmaiden to Kala the Hound Shamanka. Isabeau is driven by her revenge for the man who left her in a coffin for over 200 years, saved by Kala's Hounds.
 
Helena is to be the new Queen of the Vampires and needs  to keep the peace that is wavering between the tribes and not be assassinated before the Coronation ceremony.
 
Kieran strikes again with his Hypnos. A rather funny scene.
 
Isabeau's dreamwalking can help them  if she isn't left in limbo, separated from her body forever.
 
Logan has never made a pirate shirt and velvet jacket look so smexi. He is instantly attracted to Isabeau and will do what it takes to save his family and Isabeau.
 
Another great adventure with Lucy stuck locked in the closet at the farm to keep her safe...lol!!! ( naughty Nicholas)
 
 
QUOTES:
 
"These guys just want me to play Snow White singing in her little cottage while they do all the work."
Lucy snorted. "Snow White and the Seven Buttheads. You could give Disney a run for their money."
 
For now it was enough to deal with the image of Solange making out with Kieran in a dark corner of the hall, where they thought no one could see them. Between Solange and her hunter and Nicholas kissing Lucy, Isabeau was going to think we did nothing but grope and flirt.
 
"Dude, "I snapped as Kieran's hand strayed under the hem of Solange's shirt. The cast on his arm was sharply white against his black clothes. The fact that he'd hurt that arm saving Solange was the only reason I wasn't currently yanking him right off her. "That's my sister."

"Where's Lucy?" I asked the others.
"At the farmhouse," Nicholas said with grim satisfaction.
"How'd you manage that?"
"She's in a closet." Solange rolled her eyes.
I stared at Nicholas. "You locked your girlfriend in a closet? Smooth."
"She's going to eviscerate him," Quinn said cheerfully."
