Review by Daria.
"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." (from Amazon)
Bleeding Hearts is the fourth book in the fantastic Drake Chronicles, and this book was just as good as the others and maybe better. The plot of this novel was enticing and exciting. New and unpredictable things happening, which kept me reading and reading. I didn't want the book to end. I loved how all the heroines are smart, sassy and brave, not damsels in distress who just wait around, hoping to get rescued. I like how Alyxandra Harvey's writing is witty and edgy with hints of light and darkness. I also loved the ending, and I am really looking forward to the next book in the Drake Chronicles.
I liked all the main characters in the book, Connor, Lucy and Christabel. I liked that the story was written from three different points of view. It made it come alive in my mind and that made it even better. The characters that Alyxandra Harvey created were great and young, just the type of characters that I like to read about and learn about.
