Overview

Solange Drake has been officially crowned Queen of the Vampires, fulfilling the centuries old prophecy that foretold the rise to power of a daughter born to an ancient vampire line. Except Solange's thoughts and actions are no longer her own-she's been slowly being possessed by the spirit of Viola, the first daughter born into the Drake line, since her bloodchange. And instead of uniting the vampire tribes under the rule of an ancient daughter as the prophecy predicted, Viola would rather destroy them all and enslave humans in a personal vendetta for the devastation both wrought to her life centuries ago. Can Solange break her hold in time to save everyone she loves from a vampire civil war, hunter attack, and each other? Not everyone will survive the prophecy . . . perhaps not even her.

You ever reach the last book in the series and wonder how the hell the author is going to wrap it all up? I seriously wondered on this one. I was hoping I would get to the end and low and behold...book 7. Pleased to say that wasn't the case. And this really was a satisfying ending to a great series! I'm so pleased to be able to like Solange again. She was really starting to grate on my nerves there. I know nobody wanted to have to stake their baby sister, but she was beyond reason. Glad to know there was reason behind all that madness. Who knew that vampires could be possessed? I was also happy to see that once she realized what was going on, she did everything in her power to get Viola out. She has to piece together Viola's history, which turns out to be a little bit of her own as well. I found it fascinating. I especially enjoyed the witches role in the entire scenario. And the possession is really just half of the story. We still have to deal with those who have been kidnapping vampires, killing humans, and basically causing a whole lot of havoc. This is were the story might have been able to be cut into book 7. I dislike that feeling you get when you reach what you think is the climax of the story, only to realize your only half way through the book. The series is definitely been headed this directions, but I wish we wouldn't have reached in at break neck speed in just one book. I do love the Drake family though. The brothers are so fiercely protective of each other and will do anything for their baby sister. Even when they aren't entirely convinced that Solange isn't just reacting badly to the blood change, they still will do anything for her. They also carry that same loyalty over to their significant others. Just reading about Nick and Lucy makes me love them. I'm so glad I picked up this series. I was fun to read. Also equally happy that it's over. Now on to the next one!

Blood Prophecy is an intense thrill-ride that you do not want to miss! This novel was the conclusion of the Drake Chronicles series, and it was non-stop action and suspense. I couldn't put it down! The characters grew into their roles within Harvey's world, the plot was intriguing, and Harvey expertly used polyvocality to tell the complete story. The switching perspectives didn't annoy me like it does in so many books. I felt that it really added to my understanding of the narrative. I'd recommend this book, and this series, to anyone.  Poor Solange has had a rough time over the course of this series, and I really freaking hated her in the previous installment. However, I was able to better understand her plight in this novel and I really respected how she fought back against Viola. She was a strong character and not bratty at all. That was a huge improvement over the last novel.  Lucy was my favorite character as always, and I loved reading from her perspective. She grew over the course of the novel, but I didn't feel like her relationship with Nicholas grew enough. That being said, she was still terrific as always. Nicholas wasn't around as much as I would have liked, but this was Solange's book, so I guess that's why. I felt like I got to know some of the secondary characters better, but I still didn't connect with any of the characters outside of the narrators. That's probably  my only complaint.  The plot was intense and this book was, literally, non-stop action. Once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down. I couldn't believe poor Solange kept having so many problems, but they just kept coming. She was really tested in this novel. They all were. In an effort not to spoil it for anyone, I'll leave my plot discussion off here. The ending tied everything up wonderfully, and the pacing was perfect.  Overall, I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good vampire story. This series was a billion times better than Twilight, and while I'm sad to see it end, Blood Prophecy was the perfect ending to an excellent series. I can't wait to see what Harvey writes next.

This series has been fun to read. It's been a great escape into fantasy, watching two opposing groups find common ground, a common mission and love.

Anyone who knows me knows that I ADORE The Drake Chronicles. I went into Blood Prophecy dreading the end of not only this book, but this series. I have become friends with Solange and Lucy. I, like so many others, have fallen for one or more of the Drake brothers. Most of all, I am deeply intrigued by Isabeau and her Hounds. From the second I started this book, I had to force myself not to inhale it in one sitting. Where most of the books in this series have been pretty straightforward, this one took the scenic route, showing us the mind of the enemy, making us smell the fires and scream with frustration just as the characters did. I loved every second of this book, which did not slow down from the moment the first chapter started. My only regret is that this is the final book, and that I have to say goodbye to the characters that I have come to know for so long now. Alyxandra wrapped this series up in a nice little bow, answering all of my unanswered questions from previous books, and left me content in the end. Though I would LOVE to see her do more books in this series, or even a spin-off series, she left me feeling like it was ok to let these characters go, and that somewhere they are still out there on their adventures, and will one day return.

I am very happy that I picked up this series, but I am also sad to see it end. However, this is the perfect ending to the series. A fast paced book with action, romance, and twists to the end.
