Alyxandra Harvey - Out for Blood

Hunter Wild just wants to get through her last year at the secret Helios-Ra Academy. To do so, she'll have to betray her grandfather, date a vampire and possibly take down the entire League - all before the end of term.

Alyxandra Harvey

Out for Blood  (Drake Chronicles 3)

I really did enjoy book 1 and 2 of this series so was looking forward to reading this one.  Its about a Helios-Ra trainee called Hunter Wild.  She is enrolled at the training school and is in her last year and is one of the best there.  There are strange things happening at the school to other students and her room mate.  While trying to find out whats happening she has to deal with her feelings for a certain vampire! She has been raised to fight and kill these so she has plenty of mixed feelings.  Nice little twist in it, I didn’t guess the culprit and normally I end up guessing before the end!

While reading the only disappointment I had was that it ended! I could of read it for much longer, I didn’t put it down so I got through it far too quickly for my liking! I love the “drake “ series and this book is no different.  Alyxandra Harvey’s writing is FABULOUS, the different characters and how they all tie in together is just great!

Am really looking forward to getting my grubby mitts on book 4, I can see things have been laid down in this book which could carry on in to the next book or two!

Loved it!!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor

Errand requiring immediate attention.  Come.”
The note was on vellum, pierced by the talons of the almost-crow that delivered it.  Karou read the message. ‘He never says please’, she sighed, but she gathered up her things.  When Brimstone called, she always came.

I have seen reviews and lots of excited tweets about this book so was over the moon when I actually won a copy in a competition.  I was beyond excited when it arrived in its hardbacked shiney glory!!

The story is about a young girl, Karou who can cross between Earth and Elsewhere, but that comes to an abrupt halt when the doors to Elsewhere are closed intentionally by gorgeous winged creatures for want of a better word!

Karou must find herself and who or what she is, so its really a story of her and how she “became”.  Laini Taylor’s writing is brilliant, so descriptive and drew you into the book and the story it created.  I could actually believe the places and people existed!  Such a beautiful, flamboyant imagination! !

The ending, I thought, was left fantastically perfect, leading you on to book 2 and wanting more NOW, which in my opinion cant come quick enough!

Such a beautifully written book, that I would definitely recommend to readers, it kept me awake at night I just couldn’t put it down !!
