It's been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she's made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That's if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.
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.

Alyxandra Harvey is the author of Hearts at Stake, the first book in the Drake Chronicles. She studied creative writing and literature at York University and has had her poetry published in several magazines. When not writing, she is a belly dancer and jewelry-maker. She lives in an old farmhouse with her husband, hawk, and two dogs.
Gr 8 Up–This book picks up where Hearts at Stake (Walker, 2010) ended. As the various clans convene for the coronation of Helena Drake, the new vampire queen, her family is frantically negotiating to create alliances and bring peace to the vampire world. Isabeau St. Croix has been sent as a delegate from the Hounds, a misunderstood clan that practices magic and has strong connections to animals. When Leander Montmartre, a legendary evil vampire, threatens the royal family with his desire for the throne, Isabeau and Logan Drake work together to protect their loved ones. Their relationship becomes intense as they uncover a sinister plot that could destroy all of vampirekind. Harvey continues to weave an action-packed story full of intrigue, suspense, and romance with a great cast of characters. The historical flashbacks into Isabeau's life and the unique vampire lore of the Hounds add a new twist to the genre. A satisfying read in a series that is sure to have a strong following.Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
