TEEN: The Drake Chronicles 3: Out for Blood - Alyxandra Harvey

Release Date: 01/11/10


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.


This series by Alyxandra is fast becoming one of my favourites in the Young Adult Urban Fantasy genre, although to be honest I don’t think it will be long before she run’s out of Drakes. The characters are fun, they’re believable and whilst certain elements are fantastical, it’s a series that will pretty much do for the young reader what Lori Handeland did for the older.

Both styles are similar and whilst there are enough similarities between the two authors each has their own unique take on events as well as how to bring it to the reader. This series has been a lot of fun and I’ll definitely look forward to seeing what’s presented next although I do hope that we get back the Hound Princess as I think there’s plenty of mileage still left to be seen from that angle. Great fun.
