 The action and romance continue as the Drakes face a new vampire with a 200-year-old grudge.
It’s been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix
The clans are gathering for Helena’s royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha’s reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.
This second adventure in the Drake Chronicles—told from both Logan’s and Isabeau’s perspectives—has all the same butt-kicking action, heart-pounding romances and snarky humor that readers loved in Hearts at Stake, as well as exciting new revelations about the vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.

After reading the first in the Drake Chronicles I knew that I just had to continue with the series as it was a brilliant start.

Although I did enjoy this book I just didn't feel the same way as what I did in the first book.

The start of the book was a bit hard to get into even though loads of things was happening in the action. It wasn't until the rest of the Drake brothers and Lucy came into the picture that it got interesting, they wasn't in it that much but I think it was just the boost that was needed to get it going.

Lucy was such a strong character so the next female character to have the lead was going to have  a lot to live upto. Isabeau I don't think lived upto it as I really didn't like her much until we got to know her better but when we did she was a better character but still not one of my favourites though. She just didn't really have the fire that I think is needed to be a good character, yes she wasn't no damsel in distress but I don't think she was that likable to save either.

Logan I loved he was such a great character he had great humour and was just a strong guy in himself. I do prefer Nicholas more though but only just. I loved that he didn't care about what other people thought of him and his clothes which I found quite funny.

The relationship between Logan and Isabeau was a strange one as I just didn't get the connection there didn't seem to be a spark between them.

I did like the way something was always going on it kept me interesting in the story as I was always wondering what was going to happen next.

I am looking forward to reading the next in this series I just hope it's better than this one and just as good as the first.
