Review: Lost Girls by Alyxandra Harvey

Summary (from Goodreads):
A bonus story about Liam and Helena and how they met.

Yeeaah, that summary doesn't tell you much but basically this is a prequel of the Drake Chronicles about how 'Liam and Helena met'. It's quite sad that Lost Girls doesn't have a cover of its own, just a lowly badge on the front of the Blood Moon cover (its the thing I've stuck a load of arrows around xD) but here you go..

A quick review for a quick read.

This novella is a sweet little addition to the Drake Chronicles and I really did love it. I've always liked the way Liam and Helena were portrayed in the books but I never really thought of them as anything but Solange and her brothers' parents so it was a bit strange reading about the two of them at a young age.

The romance was a little insta-lovey but the overall effect of it was cute so I didn't mind too much. The characters really just made this novella for me, I couldn't stop smiling. I'm assuming that there were parts that were supposed to be quite tense and dramatic but because I knew everything would turn out all right in the end and nobody wasn't to go and, you know, die I wasn't constantly on the edge of my seat.

Even though the book didn't exactly have its desired effect on me, I would definitely recommend Lost Girls to anybody who enjoys the Drake Chronicles. And the great thing about this novella is that you can read it whenever, you don't have to have read all of the released books in the series.

Overall, Lost Girls doesn't really add anything plot wise to the series but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Music choice: Helena and Liam are polar opposites, their personalities and characteristics are so different. This is why I've picked When The Day Met The Night by Panic! At The Disco. 'When the moon fell in love with the sun..' Also, the song's quite cute and catchy. :)
