Blood Feud: The Drake Chronicles Book 2

I was sent an ARC of this book, and I've heard nothing but great things about the first book in this new series, so I decided to read this right away.

Blood Feud is the second in the Drake Chronicles series.  The Drakes are a family of vampires.  That said, this book is much more "Buffy" than Twilight.  It's full of action, and humor, with some romance.  This volume deals with Isabeau, a Hound princess vampire who was created during the French Revolution and left in a coffin for 200 years, and Logan Drake (the frock coat wearing brother of the Drake clan).  Told in alternating view points we find out about a new plot to kidnap Logan's sister, and usurp the Drake family to rule the vampire clans.

I liked the touch of historical fiction in here, and the action was strong.  Isabeau was a bit annoying at times, and Logan was a bit too interested in his clothes for my taste.  The humor is what really kept me going though.  There were times when I had to read parts of this out loud just to share the lines with whomever was near me.
