Review: My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey

Image from Goodreads

Synopsis from Amazon:
The Blake’s are rather different to your usual neighbours. They are vampires and some of the members of the family date back to the twelfth century. One of the children, Solange, is the only born female vampire known and, as such, she poses a direct threat to the vampire queen. Her best friend Lucy is human, and when Solange is kidnapped Lucy and Solange’s brother, Nicholas, set out to save her. Lucy soon discovers that she would like to be more than just friends with Nicholas. But how does one go about dating a vampire? Meanwhile, Solange finds an unlikely ally in Kieran, a vampire slayer on the hunt for his father’s killer.


A lively, entertaining read written from the perspective of the female protagonists. The storyline is well written with lots of interesting background information given adding depth and dimension to the story.

The story kept giving me flashes of Romeo & Juliet with the whole star crossed lovers theme.

The characters were well developed, I particularly liked Lucy and related to her well, she even has one of the best quotes I have read:

bravado was a karmic debt I had to work through….basically saying I’d been mouthy and obnoxious for several lifetimes now.

I really could not put this book down and read it in one day, it had everything action, romance, intrigue, double-cross and plot twists.

A highly recommended read for those who like paranormal romance (the male protagonists are hot, hot, hot). I cant wait for the next installment of the Drake Chronicles.

  1. OK, what is it with vampire books and terrible, cheesy character names? 🙂 I actually rolled my eyes at the name 'Solange' I can't seem to resist picking up vampire books when I see them, but I am no longer on the hunt for them! (I'm breaking up with, vampire books! It's not me, it's you.)

  2. I just adore vampire books, especially the ones where the vamps are good with souls/ a conscience etc. I am a total sucker for them, I have been since watching Buffy and Angel 🙂
