I cannot say enough good things about Alyxandra Harvey's The Drake Chronicles. And Blood Moon was, so far, my favorite book in the series. It's darker and a lot more serious than the other books, but it still has that same sense of humor that made me fall in love with The Drake Chronicles in the first place. There was so much action, and all of the characters were present. All of the Drakes are there, along with my favorite Hunters as well!
I can't even begin to tell you how in love with Harvey's characters I am. Not only do I love all of the Drake boys, I even love their mom. I even love their crazy aunts and uncles. Harvey creates a family that you want to be part of. (Or more like you want to be their crazy neighbor, Lucy, so you can ogle all the hot family members and have it not be weird...) That's part of what I love most about The Drake Chronicles. Harvey's ability to create fully fleshed out characters that actually interact with one another. They all have this chemistry with one another, like they're a real family.
And Holy. Moly. Batman! Blood Moon was the most insane book in this series by far. That's the only word to describe the crazy twist Harvey took with the storyline. Blood Moon was so utterly, heartbreakingly perfect. I didn't want it to happen, but as it was happening it still just felt... right. I seriously can't wait to see what happens next! I'm going to be holding my breath until the next book comes out. (So if I pass out, it's all your fault Alyxandra!)
If you love the Drake's the way I love them, you NEED to get your hands on Blood Moon as fast as you can! If you're one of the poor unfortunates who's never had the privilege of meeting the Drake boys, go out and buy Hearts at Stake (Drake Chronicles #1). Right now!
