Review

Praise for My Love Lies Bleeding:

'Harvey builds an engaging world of vampire cultures balanced with a smart mix of darkness and humor' (Publishers Weekly)

'Witty, sly, and never disappointing . . . Fun, funny, and a relief from Twilight wannabes, this first instalment in the Drake Chronicles has lots to offer for savvy readers and gives vampire addicts a nice twist on their usual fare' (Booklist)

Book Description

The Drakes and friends will be tested when an infestation of deadly vampires threatens Violet Hill

I was so excited when this book arrived in the post for me to review from Bloomsbury! I was a latecomer to the Drake Chronicles series, but am actually glad of that now! I don't think I could have waited in between books to find out what was going to happen. I am so lucky to have read the first four books in the space of a week!

Bleeding Hearts is told from Lucy, Connor and Christabel's points of view. Which is a little different this time around, the past 3 books have only been told from two characters points of view. I liked this little change as it was nice to hear from Lucy again, I hadn't read her point of view since way back in book one.

Christabel is Lucy's cousin, who is living with Lucy for the time being. Although Lucy hasn't told her anything about the Drakes or vampires. Instead she lets her cousin think that her parents are just really strict because there are gangs in Violet Hill, so they both have a sunset curfew. Christabel is mistaken for Lucy and kidnapped by the new Hel-Bar leader. Connor Drake who is falling for Christabel goes after her which soon finds them both trapped in an impossible situation and neither of them know if they will survive.

I really enjoyed all the little quirks that Christabel has, especially her passion for reading! She is a really great new addition to the series and I'm looking forward to reading more about her and Connor in the future!
We do see some more of our other favourite couples in this book as well, Lucy and Nicholas, Solange and Kieran, Isabeau and Logan, Hunter and Quinn.

I'm really starting to feel like every single Drake brother is going to fall in love before this series comes to an end, I really cannot wait to see who the rest of the brothers are going to fall for!

For fans of Alyxandra Harvey then it's common knowledge that this is the fourth in the series, for those who haven't, take heed and read the first three!
With so many vampire books out there and with so many romantic storylines I'm here to tell you that this series is completely different to all the other vampire books out there and I know with the cover and the synopsis you'd probably be expecting a book heavy on romance, but honestly there is much more to it:

'Lucy's cousin Christabel has come to live in Violet Hill, and adjusting to the difference between life in a small mountain town and her home in the city is difficult enough. The strict curfew that Lucy's parents enforce is the worst part. Something really dangerous couldn't possibly happen in this tiny town.
But Christabel has noticed some mysterious happenings, and it seems like Lucy, her boyfriend Nicholas and his brother Connor are all in on a secret that Christabel doesn't understand--one that seems deadly serious. Although she won't admit it, Christabel would love to be in on any secret with Connor Drake.
But when she is kidnapped by the ruthless Hel-Blar vampires, Christabel must cause more and more trouble in Violet Hill, Lucy and Connor finally fill Christabel in on all the undead drama. Together, they must find a way to stamp out the Hel-Blar for good.'

Yes, there really is a lovely romance story in this but there's also an amazing plot that will keep you enthralled from beginning to end.
Christabel breaths new life into the story and it was intriguing watching her exist in the Drake's world while being completely oblivious to the truth of the existence of vampires.

Bleeding Hearts starts a few months after Out for Blood, in which the blood moon is fast approaching, Lucy is feeling isolated and abandoned by the Drakes and Lucy's cousin Christabel is coming to town

I really liked finding out more about the Hel-Blar and how there society works. I also liked how Lucy is back as a main character and how the past two books has affected as a person.

My favourite character in this book is Connor as I totally get his sense of humour and we like similar stuff as him, as in I get the Firefly and Star Wars references and I read fantasy books because the good guys always win like him.

However I did not connect with Christabel as while we both like reading, I felt all of her characteristics were not realistic and were only there to create obstacles. I also felt no spark between Connor and Christabel as it did not seem they would like each other that way in real life and this was disappointing as this was the relationship I was looking forward to, however Nicholas and Lucy's relationship made up for it.

This book felt a bit like a middle book and end on a cliff-hanger which will make you itch to pick up Blood Moon straight away. I would recommend this book to all who liked the rest of Harvey's books.

I bought this book after I enjoyed reading the first three in the series. I found the storyline of Christabel and Connor both addictive and entertaining, as they go through the trouble of falling in love while managing to fight off the enemy. Involving Lucy (from the first book) throughout the plot was also a great addition as I felt there was more to her character that needed exploring.

I can't wait until the next book from the Drake Chronicles, to see which of the remaining Drake brothers meets their match.
