KATRINA by Elizabeth Loraine Blog Tour {Review}

Hosted by Lady Reader’s Blog Tours

 My review....
Katrina and her father are traveling far from home for the royal families to gather. But just before they are to arrive, they are ambushed. Thankfully Katrina and her father are ok. But who is attacking them; what do they want? And with all the rumors floating around about the High Regent stepping down and Katrina's father a possible candidate to take over, was the attack related? So many questions will arise and secrets will surface in this meeting of the royal families. And Katrina will be one of the only people who will be able to figure out what it all means…well she does get a little help from some new friends.

Katrina takes us back to a time when vampires are born, and if you’re a made vampire you’re rouge and unstable. Back to a time when humans are in the dark of the vampires, except for the human Watchers who protect them. Katrina takes us back to a time when vampires are vampires.

I really enjoyed Katrina and all her new friends she meets when the families gather together for council meetings. Together they learn of their special abilities and the amazing things they can do when they come together. There is not one weak female of the bunch. Each fiercely loyal to the other with bonds stronger than real sisters.

Also there is a love triangle between Katrina, Quinn and Damien. I was leaning more towards Quinn through the first half of the book, although Damien was a charmer and a sweet talker. With both men having different qualities, it was hard to choose who would be the right person for Katrina.

A fun read, even with some minor typos, I look forward to more of this series. Katrina leaves you thirsting to find out what will become of the royal vampires and their handsome Watchers.

As a vampire, being hunted was nothing new, finding out that I had to protect those hunting us was. Katrina is a young royal blooded vampire from a very old vampire family, chronicles her journey as leader of the Five from the age of seventeen. She, along with young members of each royal vampire family have been called to council. Why? No one knows, but Katrina feels the danger all around them and feels that she will the one called upon to save them all. This fast paced historical saga begins here with Katrina as she begins the journey that will change all their lives forever. It's full of romance, intrigue, danger and betrayal. To succeed the Five must become the many...Join us.

John Daniels, author writes: "This is a page-turning, swashbuckling adventuure told by a gorgeous seventeen-year-old vampire on the verge of womandhood. Katrina and her companions are girls who love fancy clothes and romantic gossip; but when their race is threatened they becone Women Warriors, using their paranormal talents, lightning speed, and razor-sharp blades to wreak dealy justice. By turns tense, funny and sad, this is a great read for fans of bloodlust.”

About Elizabeth Loraine:

I grew up in a small northern Minnesotan town married my high school sweetheart, had two beautiful children and as soon as we could we moved to a warmer climate. I have worked with my husband building and decorating custom homes for years.

After loving every kind of vampire book, movie and series since I was a child, I decided that I wanted to know more. I can write a book I thought, how hard could that be? was not as easy as I thought, but I stuck to it, and finished my first book Royal Blood Chronicles Book One in August 2009. I now have six books in the series and am about to release book two of my new series Phantom Lives.  My parents always told me that I could do anything that I wanted, work hard, and do it right. I believe that, and live that every day.

I started writing this new vampire series for teens and their moms because I wanted something different to read. I was tired of all the modern versions of vampire books, there had to be more to these long-lived beings. Where had they been, what had they seen? I wanted; no I NEEDED to know more, so Royal Blood Chronicles was born!  As in Royal Blood Chronicles, Phantom Lives features strong female characters and action and adventure mixed with romance, friendship and a historical backdrop. I hope you enjoy them.
