On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.
Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.
I wasn’t sure what I would think of Hearts At Stake by Alyxabdra Harvey. I may be a huge vampire fan but good vampire books are few and far between. With Hearts At Stake I was pleasantly surprised. It was funny and I had a good time reading it.
The chapters alternate between Lucy and Solange. Each are having their own adventure. Lucy was funny but I thought her relationship with Nicholas was a little gushy for my taste. Solange came across as a little clueless at times but that was a product of how she was raised, I guess. Overall I liked the characters.
Really, I would say this book is fluff. That’s not a bad thing! If you are looking for a fun filled vampire read Hearts At Stake by Alyxabdra Harvey is the book for you!
