Hunter Wild is the last in a long line of vampire hunters, with the new alliance formed between the vampires and the Helios-Ra (the elite vampire hunter organization) Hunter finds herself having to change her ideas about vampires especially after she meets sexy vampire Quinn Drake. Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey continues the Drake siblings stories with Quinn, one of the twins. The first time Hunter met Quinn he called her “Buffy” and then flirted with every young female vampire at the coronation, but as things start to get weird at the school for vampire hunters, Hunter finds herself relying on Quinn for his help in unraveling exactly what is going on.
Quinn has always been a bit of a flirt but there is something about Hunter that draws him like no other female ever has. When Hunter’s school is attacked by the feral Hel-Blar and then students start getting mysteriously ill, Quinn starts to fear that Hunter’s life may be in danger and he starts to realize how much he cares for the independent sexy Hunter. But as things heat up and tensions rise Quinn starts to fear he may not be able to protect Hunter from the one thing he should, himself.
Out for Blood by Alxyandra Harvey is a great read! I fell in love with the Drake Chronicles because of the witty and sparkling dialogue between the main characters and Out for Blood continues with witty wordplay between Hunter and Quinn. The tension and mystery add to the story and Hunter’s vulnerability after she does what she needs to make her a fabulous heroine. I personally get tired of stupid whinny women who wait around for the vampire to save them, Hunter is definitely not that as she works hard to continue her vampire hunting family tradition. A fourth book is scheduled to be released in November 2011 and Harvey left us hanging, I eagerly await the fourth book to find out more regarding what is happening to Solange. It was wonderful to see more of the characters from Hearts at Stake as Lucy and Nicholas are two of my favorite characters from the series, but I have to admit that Hunter and Quinn are a close second. I read the book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. If you enjoyed Hearts at Stake you will love Out for Blood!
