Blood Prophecy  - Alyxandra Harvey *Genre* YA Paranormal*Rating* 3.0*First Thoughts*Blood Prophecy is the final installment in the Drake Chronicles series and I'm happy to say that it was better than I expected. According to the author, this is not the last time we will hear from the Drake Family since she plans to write novellas in the near future. I hope that means more of Lucy and Nicholas since they are my favorite couple and Lucy is my favorite character who takes a licking and keeps on ticking. She's also the only one besides Hunter who doesn't get changed into a vampire even though she's madly in love with a Drake Brother! After reading Blood Prophecy, and learning why Solange has been so totally spastic over the course of this series, I found myself actually liking the way she kicked some serious ass in this book when it's found out that she's been possessed by a long dead Drake relative. She also makes some really adult decisions in the end, which I was truly surprised at. I even liked the way she handled herself when an enemy from the past returns in hopes of riding humanity of the Drakes and vampires in general.Blood Prophecy is actually told in a rotating POV by Solange, Lucy, Christabel (who I still don't like, nor understand what her addition to this series brought except perhaps a mate for Connor), Isabeau, and Hunter who has become probably my favorite secondary character because she and Lucy get along so well, and Hunter is another character who takes a beating and keeps on fighting.It's always sad when a series ends, but in this case I truly believe this series ran it's course. Sure there are a few questions I'd like to know, but, maybe in the upcoming novellas, we will learn more. There IS a novella at the end of this book which is about Duncan, a vampire named Sky, and a human named Miranda. It would be nice to see more of Duncan and Sky.Published January 2013 by Walker Childrens
