Summary: (From Goodreads)
The action and romance continue as the Drakes face a new vampire with a 200-year-old grudge.

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 the threatens to destroy.
This second adventure in the Drake Chroincles - 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 vampire dynasties to keep readers coming back for more.

The Story:
In this book you follow mostly Solange´s bigger brother Logan. And a girl he falls in love with. She is a vampire called Isabeau and is over 200 years old.
You follow how they get to know each other. At the same time you hear a bit about all the drama around the Drake family, after they became royals.
But most of all you get to know who Isabeau is and what happen to her in the future.

My Opinion:
This is the second book in Drake chronicle. And I must confess, compared to the first book, I was not fond of this one. I liked the Logan part when you met him and his brothers. But mostly this book was about Isabeau. Which was a character I didn´t really connected with. Specially the part where she looked back. I kind of fast read them because they bored me.

Love Alyxandra´s writting. She has a great way of writting. I just didn´t connect with the characters in this book. :( But I am still looking forward to the next book :) I can´t wait to read it. And hear more from the hot brothers :P

Therefor I decided to give this book 4 out of 6 stars
