Drake Chronicles #1

My Love Lies Bleeding
by Alyxandra Harvey

There's Nothing Like A Prophecy To Make Enemies!

Solange Drake is a vampire who was born, not made. She is not the first to be born a vampire, but she is the first female to be born. A lot of people are happy about this and a lot of people are not, such as Lady Natasha wouldbe Queen of the vampires.

There is a prophecy that all the vampire clans will unite under the Queen-ship of a female born vampire. For this reason Solange's life has just become under threat by bounty hunters. However she is also being hunted by her own kind, they can sense she is about to change, become a full vampire which will take place when she turns sixteen. The change leaves her highly attractive to her own kind, as well as vulnerable and close to death.

Lucy has been Solange's best friend for as long as either can remember. Lucy has also been fighting with Nicholas, Solange's brother, for just as long. But now things are changing. Lucy may just have discovered her feelings for NIcholas, but it is at a time that she may lose Solagne forever. Can a bounty hunter be trusted so save Solange when no one else can?

My Love Lies Bleeding is a story of teen romance, with vampires thrown in for fun. There is a lot of emphases on family and friendship which is nice, but there is also a lot of inconsistencies and plot hole throughout this story. It is evident Alyxandra Harvey has a thing for romance, and any teen girl will instantly take a liking to this new series.
