Book Review-My love lies bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey

Solange is about to become a full vampire on her 16th birthday, just like her brothers, but with major complications. An ancient prophesy suggests that she is destined for the throne of the Vampire Queen, and its current owner Lady Natasha is feeling a bit paranoid. It doesn't help that vampires from all over are coming to pay respects to Solange, all wanting to capture her so she will give them vampire babies and power if she takes the throne. Add in vampires that want to kill her, human hunters who want to destroy all vampires, a bounty on her head and the possibility that she might not survive the change, and life is pretty tough for her, her family and human best friend Lucy who are determined to protect her.

This is definitely an above average YA book. The Drake family and Lucy are good 'real' characters that you are rooting for, the plot is always moving and full of tension as you wait for the next attack to happen, and the chemistry between Lucy and Nicholas feels genuine. Too many YA books have a lack of chemistry in their romances but this one sizzles nicely, and you WANT the two of them to get together. I liked having the story switch between Solange and Lucy, as it gives two separate stories during the chaos that happens later in the book. You also know that you will learn more about the rest of the family in future books, which is something to look forward to. I liked the plot, the fight scenes and the characters a lot and will look forward to reading the next book in the series.
