Teaser Tuesdays: Blood Prophecy by Alyxandra Harvey



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading.


Today I have a teaser from a book that I received in the mail yesterday and started right away. It's from the very last Drake Chronicles book by Alyxandra Harvey. I'm kind of scared of all the things that could happen in this last book but I hope it'll end in a good way. 


My teaser:
A shaft of sunlight fell on me, making my dress look like fire and my skin glow like pearls. The shadows around me darkened, as if my glowing skin were leeching the light from everything around me. I was a lantern on the longest, darkest moonless night.

-page 16, paperback.



 ~Blood Prophecy (Drake Chronicles #6) by Alyxandra Harvey
Paperback, 496 pages
Published January 8th 2013 by Walker Childrens
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.

  1. I have this one on my Kindle but still need to read Bleeding Hearts and Blood Moon. I want to catch up but need to find some extra time for reading. My teasers this week are from Not Quite Dating by Catherine Bybee and The Last Station Master by S.A.M. Posey. Happy reading!
