Hearts At Stake (Drake Chronicles 1) Review
description (Hearts At Stake) from goodreads:
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.
I thought it was a nice story. One thing that was new was the bestfriend (Lucy) had always new that Solange was to become a vampire and that the rest of her family were vampires or to become one too. I liked that it was in both girls point of views, and that they both had a love interest.
I had also never heard of a human turning into a vampire on a certain birthday. In this case the 16th.
It was also nice to see the vampire getting caught and the human having to go and save the vampire, it was another thing that was new to me. I really liked this book. 4/5.
