5.0 out of 5 stars Out For Blood 14 April 2011
Format:Paperback
Move over Buffy, there's a new vampire hunter in town!

Hunter Wild is a student at the Helios-Ra academy, where she's being trained in the art of hunting vampires. She is fast, strong, beautiful and intelligent but needs all her wits and cunning to figure out what's afflicting her fellow students when they all mysteriously start becoming ill. Her grandfather, who raised her after the death of her parents, has taught her that vampires are the enemy and must be stopped at all costs, but when she meets Quinn Drake, up close and in person, she starts developing a whole new set of feelings about vampires - of which her grandfather would most definitely not approve!

This was definitely my favourite installment in the series so far. I loved the character of Hunter who's definitely someone you'd want fighting on your side and I liked the fact that a lot of the plot took place in the school. The story alternates between Hunter's narrative and Quinn's and I liked seeing how they both coped with their new-found feelings for each other. Quinn has always had a reputation for having an eye for the ladies, but when he meets Hunter and their relationship starts to develop romantically, he has to adjust to being a one-woman vampire. I thought their romance was brilliantly written and the scenes between the two of them were very natural and realistic.

I also liked the fact that we got to see the vampires being afraid for the humans around them and struggling with their emotions and natural instinct for blood. They have to weigh up their own feelings, against what will keep the people they love safe - even if that means keeping them as far away from them as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book from Harvey 22 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to a phenominal series 21 Jan 2011
By Book Angel Emma VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I really don't know where to start. I love the Drake Chronicles, each book so far centres around one particular member of the Drake family. The family tree shown at the beginning highlights the characters to be focused on while showing the connection to the other characters.

I really don't feel as if I can go into to much plot detail with this book as it will certainly spoil the enjoyment of reading it yourself. Let me just say that I have not been disappointed yet with any of these books and this is no exception.

It is a brilliant piece of craftsmanship how Alyxandra Harvey is able to write a story with central characters and yet still progress the other characters that we have already come to know in the previous books. Nicholas and Lucy/Kieran and Soalnge from My Love Lies Bleeding alongside Logan and Isabeau from Blood Feud. Having chatted to a few authors on twitter and knowing that the characters actually talk to them inside their heads; makes me wonder what on earth must be going on inside Alyxandra's head. All the characters are well developed, easy to relate to (you can even sympathize with the Drake's craving for blood) and their interactions are realistic.

This story revolves around Hunter, the last in a long line of prestigious Helios-Ra agents. Revolving around the inner workings of the Helios-Ra training school. Great insight into how the other side work, giving a rounded picture of both the Vampires and the Helios-Ra. Some incredible twist and turns, leaving the reader wondering just who are the 'enemy'. Courageous, loyal with some kicking martial arts skills, Hunter is a great role model. Here connection to Kieran adds to the storyline and parallels the Quinn/Solange relationship dynamics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Drake Chronicles book 3 22 Mar 2012
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Hunter comes from a long line of vampire hunters and is one of the star pupils at the Helios-Ra Academy. Her friendship with Kieran has recently brought her into contact with the Drake family and for the first time she is questioning the Helios-Ra ethos that all vampires are evil and should be destroyed. Back at the Academy students are suffering from a mysterious illness and Hel-Blar attacks are on the increase. Hunter is convinced there is something suspicious going on but who can she trust to help her get to the truth? If she can't trust the other hunters can she really trust a vampire to help her get to the bottom of things? Does she have any other choice?

It's no secret that I really enjoyed the first two books in the Drake Chronicles series so I couldn't wait to pick up Out for Blood. This series really does get better with every book as Alyxandra Harvey continually steps things up a gear. If you're new to the series then I'd highly recommend reading the books in order starting with My Love Lies Bleeding (or Hearts at Stake as it is called in the US) so you don't miss out on the ongoing plot threads. This is a fabulous series though and one I'd definitely recommend reading!

What can I say about Out for Blood apart from move over Logan and Nicholas I have a new favourite Drake brother in Quinn! I have to confess I didn't think I'd fall for Quinn as hard as I did, he's a bit of a ladies man and a player which isn't something I would usually go for in a guy but you can easily see why Quinn is such a hit with the girls because there is definitely something irresistible about him. I loved seeing the tables turned on him, he is used to having girls fall at his feet not falling himself so it was fun to see his reaction to Hunter and his new found feelings.
