Book Review of Katrina

Book Review of Katrina

Katrina: The Beginning
By Elizabeth Loraine

As a Vampire being hunted was nothing new. Finding out that I had to save those that were hunting us was!

Katrina, a young royal blooded vampire, chronicles her life from the age of seventeen beginning in the 1800's forward in the series Royal Blood Chronicles.

Katrina is thrust into something she never could have imagined growing up in the aristocracy of Europe. Once the fashion of the day, and girlish gossip filled Katrina and her new friends days, but their lives changed the instant their race was threatened and they were chosen as the Five, and the protectors of not only the vampire race, but all the peaceful races of the world!

If you are looking for a new, exciting vampire series, with strong female characters you've found it in Royal Blood Chronicles. It starts here with Katrina, The Beginning!

About the Author:

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 I decided that I wanted to know more. I can write a book I thought, how hard can that be? Well.... 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, study and do it right. I believe that and live that way every day.

I started writing this new vampire series for teens and their moms because I myself 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.

Book Review:

            After a lifelong journey and adventure, Katrina is asked to write her life’s story about how her adventure came about.  Thus starts the book Katrina.  You see Katrina is 110 years old; she is a vampire… a very special vampire who not only found love, but had a grand adventure.

            Katrina and 4 other girls are chosen to save not only their race, but all the world… even those who hunt them.  I’m not sure I would want to do this, but they all willingly make the choice.

            This is one of those fabulous books that transcends the genre and makes you understand why people love “vampire books.”  Unfortunately the hype over Twilight had tainted my view of vampires in books, but this book redeems the vampire book for me.  I give it 5 out of 5 clouds.
