Out For Blood Review:
This books follows the story of the fourth Drake brother along with an introduction into another society. We have faced the Hounds, the Hel-Bar, and the royal bloodlines. What we haven't gone into detail yet is the humans who have helped make the Drake's the ruling family. The Helios-Ra are named after sun gods which are allergic to vampires. Meaning they are the bane of the vampires. This was until now because of the new treaty. With every installment of the series we get to see more of the treaty and battles fall into place that is leading up to the epic climax.

We have Quinn's story which for sure will bring about many girls as he is the most flirty and energetic of all of the brothers. Like the last book the two love interests are complete opposites but it is because of this that they match. It was amazing to read this as we get a deep history of these humans. (If you want an even better history of the Wild family read Corsets and Crossbows which brings about some very interesting turns). Hunter is the last of one of the most prestigious families in the Helios-Ra. She is fiercely independent and loyal but is not without her moments of vulnerability. When she's paired up with the enigmatic Quinn, things take a turn for the dangerous. One a vampire and one a vampire hunter they don't always see eye to eye. This deals with more turmoil than the other two books and causes Hunter to look at herself to see who she really is. You see her develop from a follower of the organization to one who is willing to put herself at risk to save the people she loves. Even if it means turning her back on what she's known for her life. Quinn like all the Drake brothers doesn't have much of a change in character except they are adapting to the situations they are put into and their true characters are revealed. Quinn can be shown as supportive and a killer in one sweep.

On the other hand, this story wasn't just about Quinn and Hunter. We also have Solange we is getting closer to going into a blood frenzy. And it takes a turn for the worse when she grows three sets of fangs. It evens manages to get in more of the Drake family. Bringing some much needed humor with Lucy locking Nicholas in the closet this time. Something big is sure to happen when Solange is going mad, and the Helios-Ra is facing a rebellion. Out for Blood will keep you one your toes for sure waiting for the next bomb to drop. A book that has surpassed Blood Feud and Hearts at Stake.
