In the thrilling conclusion of the Drake Chronicles, love and loyalties will be tested ... and proven once and for all.

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.

My Thoughts

I am glad Solange’s behavior change was explained in the way that it was. I even kinda felt bad for Viola- that was until she tried to kill my beloved Drakes. Solange is possessed- no one can tell except her bestie, Lucy. A possessed teenager sucks in general but when you also happen to be a vampire princess who just took the crown from your momma being possessed is well a nightmare.

Lucy is well, still Lucy- fiercely loyal, completely has her besties’ back, determined to bring Solange and Nicholas back from the dark side. I love how she will do anything for Nicholas. Even as a human entering a den of vampires to prove he is still her Nicholas. Nicholas- hotness on a stick- Drake turns his back on everyone to stick by Solange’s side. His baby sister- because he has to protect her. Even if that means pushing the person he loves, Lucy away. But Lucy won’t have it. Ultimately all is explained.

I love how the book ends coming full circle. Yes, characters die but their deaths were necessary. Some may bring tears to your eyes other will just well make you think thank goodness she killed so and so off.

I cannot believe that it is over. Blood Prophecy is an excellent ending to an engaging series. Vampires, humans, princesses and evil- seriously what more do you need in a book?

My Rating 5 stars out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote “If she could resist his pretty face and his smart mouth, she could resist a nuclear bomb during exams and still pass with honors."

Other Characters

Laim- Father Drake- he is the calm one in the family, also the diplomat. Helena- Momma Drake- a total momma bear, who will hurt/stake anyone who threatens her family. 
Viola- now that is one crazy spirit 
All the other siblings and loved ones are back.
