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.

I was so excited to read Blood Feud, after Heart at Stake, because I adored that book. Luckily I wasn't disappointed by Blood Feud. The characters were just as lively as they were in Blood Feud. Lucy, Solange, Nicholas, and Kieran appeared in the book and were really awesome in this book too. I really liked how it changed perspectives to Logan and Isabeau. Logan was really interesting and I loved how sweet he was to Isabeau. He also cared about his family. Isabeau was old fashioned, but she could be very kick ass. Montmarte continues to be evil and you are also introduced to Greyhaven, who is just as evil as his boss. I liked that Harvey allowed us to have an inside view into what the Hounds were and how they worked.
The plot of Blood Feud was constantly going and changing. I wasn't really sure what would develop, except for the romance between Logan and Isabeau. There was a lot of action with the fighting and politics in this book. I still find the various types of vampire to be very interesting and original. The magic that the vampires can posses is very interesting and well developed. Harvey is an excellent writer that creates such a fantastic world that is one of a kind. I highly suggest this book to fans of Paranormal Romance.
