Out for Blood is set a week after Blood feud where Helena is about to be crowned as queen, more Hel-Blar are attacking Violet hill and it is the start of a new year for the students at the Helios-Ra academy.
Out for Blood (like all of Alyxandra Harvey's books so far) has a good mix of Humour action and romance. This book is like a lot of YA paranormal romance books, where it is set in a boarding school and where a vampire and a vampire hunter have a star-crossed romance, but Harvey writes this book brilliantly so I don't mind if it is not as unique as her other Drake books.
I really understand and like hunter and how she always does what is right no matter how she is pressured not to and also how she acts when she is fighting want she should do and what she wants to do, which I think is very realistic. The romance in this book is good but I did not feel that Hunter and Quinn had as much of a spark as Lucy and Nick or Logan and Isabeau but I did like the start-crossed nature of their romance.
This book seems to have more supporting characters than the other books with Hunter's friends and teachers at the academy, and while I like the drakes it was nice to get to know different characters such as Chloe and Spencer.
I would recommend this book to those who like the rest of the drake chronicles.
