Solange has been crowned queen of the vampires, well at least her body has been crowned queen. Blood Prophecy by Alyxandra Harvey picks up right where Blood Moon left off, Nicholas has escaped from Dawn (the mysterious person helping to capture and torture vampires and humans alike) but we don’t know how nor is it certain whether he has turned evil like Solange or is just playing along to provide info for Solange’s family.
Meanwhile, Solange finds her consciousness trapped inside Viola’s (the crazy first vampire who stole Solange’s body) castle. It is up to Solange to figure out how to escape from Viola, regain control of her own body and figure out how to defeat Viola once and for all. Of course, during all of this Lucy is running around trying to figure out what is going on and getting herself almost killed in the process.
Blood Prophecy was a nice finish to The Drake Chronicles series by Alyxandra Harvey. One of things I love best about this series the loyalty the family has to one another, the family rather quickly realized that Solange was not Solange, refusing to believe that the crazy actions her body was taking was her, despite the obvious evidence that she was doing it. Blood Prophecy has plenty of Nicholas and Lucy (definite favs) and finally learn how Nicholas escaped the torture by Dawn. Solange’s journey through this series has been good but she really came into her own in Blood Prophecy. She went from being the overprotected baby of the family (and only girl child) to having to rely on herself to defeat Viola. I don’t thinks Blood Prophecy works as a stand alone novel, you really need to read the rest of the series to understand who everyone is and what is going on but I highly recommend the entire series.
