I received an arc of this book from Keary Taylor in return for an honest review.

It's Not your typical vampire Romance. It's better. I don't want to give away any spoilers but Alivia is a pretty laid back girl thrown into a world she never knew exists and does it with class. I found it a little slow to begin with but once you get into it you get hooked. And the last few chapters go really quickly. Some parts really had me on edge trying to read quicker to get to the part I wanted to hear about. I was completely enthralled. When it ended I really wanted the 2nd one straight away. I want to hear more about the royals and would have liked to see one in this book however I know it's all to come in the next one. And that I will defiantly be reading. Totally worth the read. 😄

Someone recommended House of Royals to me, knowing I have a love for anything vampires and it’s safe to say this book did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the unique take on vampirism and the way that Keary carefully builds the story based on the history of the vampires and the town.

I love Alivia’s strong female character and how doesn’t allow the target on her back to stop her from living her life or getting the man she wants. She doesn’t allow the house to manipulate her, she knows what she wants and she goes for it. No matter the danger.

For me I think my favourite part of the book has to be the ending it was so tense and full of suspense, there is a great cliffhanger which I’m sure has left many with a book hangover. It made me super excited to start the next book, eager to know what happened.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and have given it a five-star rating. I have also already begun recommending it to other people. This book is full of politics and vampire hierarchy and takes you on a great journey of a new vampire world. If you enjoy young adult and vampire then this book is definitely for you.

When Alivia finds out she has inherited a mansion from the father she never knew, she didn't expect to be thrown into such a dramatically different world. Not only does she have to get used to living in the South but she learns that Vampires are real, and that one day she is destined to become one. To make matters worse she finds herself attracted to a man that tried to kill her the first time they met, and is a sworn enemy of vampires everywhere...

MORE! Please! I finished this book and had to sit down for a moment. Somewhere between a quarter of the way through and the end it completely grabbed me and now has me anxious to find out what happens next. On top of that was the ending. Normally I'm not a massive fan on predictable twists, and with this one I guessed it right, but still felt really happy about it (though obviously it will make things complicated for the characters). There was also a chapter or two where I was devastated and second guessing myself too.

I loved the different take on Vampire lore that House of Royals seemed to take. Vampires are such a done subject now (says someone who writes about vampires herself) that having something that sets a book apart from the others is a good thing, and House of Royals certainly had that. I'm still curious, mostly about how the Bitten work as opposed to the Born (really most of the characters are Born so more is known about them).

Ian and Alivia's relationship was actually quite subtle.

This book is a typical blend of vampires, politics and romance with a strong female lead, reminiscent of the vampire diaries and the sookie Stackhouse series. Its distinctive features are the fact that the main character, Alivia, is 22 so the book doesn't quite fall into the young adult category but neither is it quite a fully adult book (no swearing, no explicit scenes, violence not too graphic). Secondly what stands out is the fact that the vampires are proper vampires, ie they are frequently seen drinking blood and are very much predators and not just sparkling manipulative beauty queens.

The plot involves a young woman whose life is uprooted when she finds out her father was actually a rich southern man who left her a mansion in Mississippi. Upon arrival at her new home she discovers her father was in fact a powerful vampire and that she will become a vampire too when she dies. To make matters worse a local faction of vampires need her to lead their 'house' since she is a member of their royal family.
Naturally, she is bold and independent, and naturally, despite being perfect for the leadership role, she wants none of it.
What follows is her struggles with the house leader and her destiny as well as a developing romance with the classic star crossed lovers element as the guy happens to be a vampire hunter who hates all vampires.

The book drew me in from the start with some vivid descriptions and settings and was enjoyable and fast paced. However it was quite a light read in the sense that there wasn't too much emotional depth. In fact the way the main character just accepted all these massive revelations and life changes so quickly was a bit annoying and I would have liked if the writing had gone deeper to explore her thoughts more.
