And out of the darkness one will rise. One will breed true. One will rule.
Annaleigh Savage wants none of the prophecy and none of the madness that comes from the throne being forced upon her. She has run far and fast and tried to redefine her life completely … and yet … they still come. As the last Blood Princess it is her duty to take her seat upon the Blood Throne. But what happens when the Princess of the Blood decides that the Blood Throne just doesn't suit her? A battle of wills will ensue unlike any seen before. And in this game of life and death, death seems to win every time.
Annaleigh Savage has no intention of fulfilling any vampire prophesies. She tried that route before, hated it and has moved on to living in the mortal world. But nothing is so easy. When the vampire council decides it’s time for her to take her place, she’ll have to fight for her freedom, even if that freedom means returning to her former life. Unlike the first time though, Annaleigh is doing things on her terms.
I’m a fan of upbeat vampire stories and Drinking Death has a great mix of intense scenes and humor. The mix makes the story a quick, interesting read. The series is intriguing to me. The story ended in a way that makes my fingers twitch for the next addition to see who Annaleigh chooses and what might happen with the secondary characters. This is the start of a series that I’ll be picking up again and would suggest to vampire lovers out there.
