The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a teen romance to really get your teeth into. It’s an action-packed, urban fantasy full of Gothic seduction, teen angst, passion, wicked humour and adventure, all skilfully ignited by an age-old prophecy and a reluctant vampire princess that will carry the reader breathless to the very last page. Told through a gripping dual narrative by Solange, the only non-initiated vampire ever born and Lucy, Solange’s best friend.

Synopsis

My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey

The Blakes are rather different to your usual neighbours. They are vampires and some of the members of the family date back to the twelfth century. One of the children, Solange, is the only born female vampire known and, as such, she poses a direct threat to the vampire queen. Her best friend Lucy is human, and when Solange is kidnapped Lucy and Solange's brother, Nicholas, set out to save her. Lucy soon discovers that she would like to be more than just friends with Nicholas. But how does one go about dating a vampire? Meanwhile, Solange finds an unlikely ally in Kieran, a vampire slayer on the hunt for his father's killer.

Reviews

'Harvey builds an engaging world of vampire cultures balanced with a smart mix of darkness and humor'

'Witty, sly, and never disappointing ... Fun, funny, and a relief from Twilight wannabes, this first installment in the Drake Chronicles has lots to offer for savvy readers and gives vampire addicts a nice twist on their usual fare'

'With teenage angst, romance and vampire slaying, this book pushes all the right buttons'

'The story is filled with action, humour, lust and ... not one but seven hunky heroes! Lucy's journey will leave you breathless'
