Review: Hearts at Stake (Drake Chronicles #1)by Alyxandra Harvey

On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.

Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.
Even fans of the genre who’ve seen it all will find a fresh read with kick-butt characters and family dynamics that ring true for all brothers and sisters—vampire or otherwise

Hearts at Stake was a really really good read. I found the switching between the two characters interesting. Two love stories for the price of one who wouldn't love it? I loved the characters! I think Nick and Lucy make a great couple! I loved how their relationship bloomed. I totally saw it coming! Solange and Kieran are great too! I do wish there would have been more interaction between them. But it was still great! This book had a great story line. Im excited to see what part two has in store!
