Author Alyxandra Harvey was born on December 26 in Montreal while an ice storm was going on. When she was nine years old, she was bothering her family on their vacation with her boredom. One of the family’s friends said that she should write a story. So she did, and then she could not stop. She fell in love with it, right from the get go. She wrote all kinds of things: stories, poetry, and a very terrible high fantasy book by hand when she was only fifteen years old. Harvey reads all kinds of things; fantasy, young adult, historical fiction, romance, and history.

She worked for an archaeologist as a volunteer cleaning and cataloging bones and pottery bits while in a basement in Toronto. She also worked as a jewelry designer, and used to own a bead shop. That being said, she has always thought of writing as her first love.

Harvey likes books, tattoos, and cinnamon lattes; she also loves medieval dresses, and she once was able to recite Tennyson’s The Lady of Shalott. She is inspired by the authors Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. More than once, she has been accused of not being born in the right century. To her, this is pretty much true, but at the same time, she likes woman’s rights, ice cream, and running water.

Harvey has written the “Drake Chronicles” and “The Lovegrove Legacy” series. Her work is considered young adult urban fantasy.

Her house is a stone Victorian house, that is located in Ontario; it does have some ghosts, that can stay just as long as they mind their manners. Besides the ghosts, she also lives with her husband and the dogs they have.

“My Love Lies Bleeding” is the first novel in the “Drake Chronicles” and was released in the year 2009. The Drake family is not like your usual neighbors. Rather, they are vampires, some of which, date all the back to the twelfth century. Solange, a child from the Drake family, is the only known born female and, of course, she is a threat to the vampire queen.

She has a human best friend, named Lucy. When Solange gets kidnapped, both Solange’s brother (named Nicholas) and Lucy go off to save her. Lucy soon figures out that she would like to be more than just a friend to Nicholas. How do you go about dating someone who is a vampire? Kieran (who is a vampire hunter that is looking for the killer of his father) serves as an unlikely ally to Solange.

Some found they were able to finish the novel in a single sitting. Fans of the novel found this to have a fast pace, a lot of humor and action. A lot of what is described, clothing and food wise, were things that readers actually wanted to wear and eat. Harvey gives readers a great perspective on vampires; with an interesting and unique history. Even readers who do not typically read vampire stories will enjoy reading this one, it is that well written.

“Blood Feud” is the second novel in the “Drake Chronicles” and was released in the year 2010. Isabeau St. Croix was just barely able to survive the French Revolution centuries back. Now she has made it back to the living, and must face the biggest test by going toe to toe with the maleficent British lord that left her to die the day she was turned into a vampire. That is if she can keep her affection for a vampire named Logan Drake in check; his bite is as sweet as the revenge she wants.

All of the clans are getting together for Helena’s royal coronation as the new vampire queen. There are new alliances forming after the old rifts from Lady Natasha’s reign are now healing. There is a new enemy for everyone, named Leander Montmarte; who is a brutal leader that wants to make Solange marry him and take the throne’s power for his own. All of the clans have to ban together to keep the peace that he is looking to destroy.

This is a great action packed and funny book, with plenty of romance, in a wonderful series. This is another page turning novel that you will not want to put down, and when you do, you will only want to quickly return to it. Fans of the novel like the Drake’s and their voices, and their banter with each other; each one of them, has something special about them that makes readers smile.

“Out for Blood” is the third novel in the “Drake Chronicles” and was released in the year 2010. Hunter Wild comes from a family of elite vampire hunters. It is something that is both a curse and a blessing, while at the secret Helios-Ra Academy, a place that she seems to excel at everything.

Because of her friendship with Kieran Black, she is able to get invited to the Helena Drake’s coronation. For the first time ever, she is able to see a difference in the vampires that need to be hunted and the ones that you can be friends, or more, with.

Students from the academy start to fall ill with an odd illness, and Hunter believes that they are being attacked from within. She needs to have someone she can trust help her with this, if she wants to save Helios-Ra. It comes from Quinn Drake, who is a very gorgeous vampire. No one said that her senior year would be an easy one.

It was great to see a character, like Hunter, who is vulnerable but not to the point where she is a damsel in distress and is unable to hold her own. Fans of the novel found that this is a great series to read in just a short span of time. Some found that it was nice to meet some supporting characters from all different kinds of places in this book. It was nice to catch up with some of the couples from some of the other books in the series. Some found this book to be a lot better than they thought it was going to be, before they starting reading it.
