Hunter Wild is the youngest in a long line of elite vampire hunters, a legacy that is both a blessing and a curse at the secret Helios-Ra Academy, where she excels at just about everything. Thanks to her friendship with Kieran Black, Hunter receives a special invitation to attend the coronation of Helena Drake, and for the first time, she sees the difference between vampires that must be hunted and vampires that can become friends—or even more. When students at the academy fall victim to a mysterious illness, Hunter suspects they are under attack from within. She will need someone she can trust to help her save the future of Helios-Ra . . . help that shockingly comes in the form of Quinn Drake, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire. Who said senior year would be easy?
I can't explain how happy i was when i got the copy at my hands. I'm just in love with those books. They are simple and funny.
And while Drake Chronicles #2 wasn't as good as the first and my interest fall some levels, this one make it go way up again.
There are two reason at the story why i liked this one more than the previous one. Of course it was again FULL of action and surprises, and the background story was well settled and kept you interested. But i what i liked most was:
-That we follow Quinn. Quinn is the one Drake brother who is every day with another girl but he is a really good guy at the same time. Like a prince something. So we get the chance, to see his pointview and she him actually fall in love. The way Ms.Harvey managed to keep in him in his character and don't change him totally for the girl was one of the bests i have seen. He kept his "i'm hot and i know it" style but at the same time he became caring towards the girl he really liked. And of course he knows how to really kick ass!
-Second was something totally new. The second pointview is from Hunter who is actually a vampire hunter from Helios-Ra. Finally we get to meet the world and the school of Helios-Ra. To see how they act, what to believe, what they learn and everything. Plus Hunter, was a really clever girl and she gave the vampires a chance to prove themselves no matter what her family believed. And i totally loved how open minded she was. She was an enjoyable character to read. Oh! And of course she was Quinn's love interest. It always go like this.
Additional we saw again characters of the previous books like Nicholas and Lucy, which are by far my fav ones. Or the whole Drake family actually XD Haha!
Anyway, totally worth a read! Of course it's better if you get the first two before.
