12+: Blood Feud - Alyxandra Harvey


It has been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix survived the French Revolution. Now she's made her way back to the living and must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who turned her into a vampire and left her buried for two hundred years. That's if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks...


Having read the original and being pretty drawn in by the premise, I was hoping that this second title would surpass the original and fix some of the problems that I had. What unfurls within this title is definitely the better book by far as the world building was pretty established so the author could concentrate on the characters and overall arc. Its beautifully written, the characters come to life and it’s a title that will definitely announce that this series has arrived as it has something for everyone. You want love? Check. You want a kick ass plot with combat? Check. You want some devious double dealing and politics? You’ve got it.

Definitely a cracking title and one that appealed to me just as much as it will to the target audience, it could well be the book that will be a joy to share with your young reader. Also with the first title as an ebook today for free and you’ve got a great chance to get in before a lot of others descend.
