Solange Drake has been officially crowned Queen of the Vampires, fulfilling the centuries old prophecy that foretold the rise to power of a daughter born to an ancient vampire line. Except Solange's thoughts and actions are no longer her own-she's been slowly being possessed by the spirit of Viola, the first daughter born into the Drake line, since her bloodchange. And instead of uniting the vampire tribes under the rule of an ancient daughter as the prophecy predicted, Viola would rather destroy them all and enslave humans in a personal vendetta for the devastation both wrought to her life centuries ago.
Can Solange break her hold in time to save everyone she loves from a vampire civil war, hunter attack, and each other? Not everyone will survive the prophecy . . . perhaps not even her.
All good series must come to an end, but it is still sort of sad when it happens. Blood Prophecy is the last installment of The Drake Chronicles, all though it sort of sucks that we didn't get to see what might happen with the other two brothers.
If you haven't read this series then be careful about reading this, I am going to try and not put out to many spoilers but it's hard to talk about the end of a series and not talk about things that have happened.
Solange has had a very rough time ever since her bloodchange, she is not like normal vampires. She has three sets of fangs, and her veins make her skin turn slightly blue. She has had a very old vampire try and kill her and now she is being possessed by her ancestor. The thing is is most of the other vampires and hunters think that she has turned into a feral monster and bringing to many hunters into where all the vampires have gathered.
This book is told in the POV of mainly Solange, Nickolas and Lucy, so you get the incite of what is going on through three different story lines that are happening at the same time. Most of the beginning of the novel deals a lot with Solange being possessed by Viola and for me it was a bit boring. I was more interested in what was happening with Nicholas and Lucy.
This novel had a lot going on in it as not only were the Drakes trying to figure out what happened to their daughter but there was a lot of old time huntsman in town. Someone is going around kidnapping vampires and humans trying to start an all out war and only a hand full of Helio-Ra students and looking into things trying to figure out what is happening. Everyone else is playing the blame game. It's Vampires vs. Hunters as the final book plays out in this series.
I am not sure what I was hoping with the last book in this series but as much as I really wanted to love this book it didn't happen. I couldn't get into the first half and the last half though it was better I kept thinking it was about to end and then it didn't. So over all I did enjoy the book just not as much as I thought I would and I am still very sad that it's the end.
