Publication date: June 22, 2010

Publisher: Bloomsbury US

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Summary from Goodreads.com: It’s been centuries since Isabeau St. Croix barely survived the French Revolution. Now she’s made her way back to the living and she must face the ultimate test by confronting the evil British lord who left her for dead the day she turned into a vampire. That’s if she can control her affection for Logan Drake, a vampire whose bite is as sweet as the revenge she seeks.

The clans are gathering for Helena’s royal coronation as the next vampire queen, and new alliances are beginning to form now that the old rifts of Lady Natasha’s reign have started to heal. But with a new common enemy, Leander Montmarte—a vicious leader who hopes to force Solange to marry him and usurp the power of the throne for himself—the clans must stand together to preserve the peace he threatens to destroy.

In my continuing my quest to read books from my own book shelf I finally picked up Blood Feud.  I adored the first book, Hearts At Stake, but just never made it to the next book.  While this book is by no means bad it just didn’t grab me the way the first book did.

Isabeau had an interesting background and I loved getting the glimpses of her past as she survived the French Revolution only to be unwittingly turned during a ball. Her modern-day life did not enthrall me quite as much.  I would have liked to seen more of why she gained such an important role in the Hounds and of her life with them.

Logan didn’t really do it for me either.  He was handsome, charming and everything a hero is supposed to be but other than his love of frock coats nothing really stood out about him.

The story was interesting though and it did keep a nice pace.  I enjoyed seeing more about how all the factions were working together or against each other.

Final verdict: a fun read but did not live up to the first book.
