    One thought on “House of Royals”

    1. I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for a honest review.The House of Royals is a start of a new southern vampire series that is unlike any I've read so far. While reading it, I was actually thinking of the series Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and also Sookie Stackhouse. Although the plots are really not the same at all, it just had that dark, mystical, southern kind of feel. The actual concept of the novel and the atmosphere of it was definitely my favorite thin [...]

    2. House of Royals was a completely new and original vampire story. It was just the right story, exactly when I needed something fresh and new. Something about Taylor's writing style just clicked.I found the pace absolutely perfectly balanced with the story telling. It was a slow builder but all of a sudden I was completely reeled in and had me totally hooked. One of those reads that you want to turn past the last page and find more, or in my case, beg for an ARC of book two House of Pawns to find [...]

    3. This book got a lot better as it went along. At first I felt a bit disappointed by how familiar it was. Ian was the obvious love interest and it was a bit insta-lovey. But as it went on, their relationship got rather intense and it was beautifully written. I just wish they would have met in difference circumstances so the first part of their relationship hadnt been so dull. A lot also started to happen with Liv and the House and I am now looking forward to book 2.

    4. I know there have been a lot of vampire romance series since the late 90's but I still love them. In fact, I'm more drawn to them than before. So, when I started reading House of Royals by Keary Taylor, I was extremely impressed by the originality and how it drew me in. The characters and backstory of this southern vampire family kept me reading. Taylor weaves words in hypnotic fashion and I can't wait to read more! My Rating: 4.5 stars

    5. Love on the runThis is a great tale with Alivia as a completely likable modern girl who falls in love with tall dark and handsome. The plot is what keeps driving the novel into deeper waters upping and maintaining a good pace. I'm moving right on to the next book.

    6. For this review and more check out my blog I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Sometimes I read a book that just makes me want to cry. Not because it is sad, or because it made me laugh too hard. Sometimes books make me want to cry because I really, really wanted then to be great and instead they ended up being the opposite. This is where I am with House of Royals, I am in a land of bitter disappointment. It wasn't supposed to be like this. I am a fan of [...]

    7. I don't even know where to start with this review. I have attempted writing this review at least a dozen times and every time, my only thoughts are, HOLY SHIT, I need more NOW!!!"Sometimes fate deals you the horrible and the incredible. We can't run from either."House of Royal is very distinct and well written vampire story. Yes - there are many stories about vampires and every author has a different take on them. However, it's Keary's writing and brilliant mind that makes her story stand out an [...]

    8. Received an e-arc in exchange for an honest review. I was so ready to read this book. SO EXCITED for this new adult book about the paranormal, and it did not deliver. This reads like it's made for a 15 year old first learning about love."he'd called me that [sweetheart] twice now."Are you kidding me? Why are you excited main character whose name I can't even bother to remember. Is this something I really need to care about? She's falling for him within the first day she meets him, but makes it s [...]

    9. *i received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*Alivia, a normal girl discovers that she has inherited an estate in a town from her recently deceased father. She does not expect an enormous mansion with cooks, maids, a butler and chandeliers. Having never known she had a father, Alivia is desperate to know the man who has left her his house but when her research leads her to an old macabre scene, she discovers that her father was not the man she expected him to be. He was [...]

    10. This was a quick and enjoyable read. If you are into vampires I would recommend this book to you. Alivia finds out who and what her dad really was. She then moves to his plantation after inheriting all of his things. She goes from broke to excessively rich. However, it comes with a price. Alivia spends the book coming to terms with it and embraces who she is meant to be.

    11. 3 stars!Slow paced book that focused mainly on the characters rather than the action, I needed more vampires tbh. It was a nice introduction to the series though.

    12. This book was surprisingly good. I actually found myself gripped by it and struggled to put it down at times. The main character is Alivia Ryan a seemingly normal girl who finds out in her fathers will that she is very rich and ends up moving to the small town to live in the mansion he owned. There she learns the true secret of her father and ends up being thrown into the world of vampires and vampire hunters. The most noteworthy secondary character is Ian, the hot as hell vampire hunter who pro [...]

    13. This is a Review for a copy of the audio version of House of Royals by Keary Taylor4 StarsI picked this audiobook after it popped a few times in my Facebook newsfeed. I wasn’t really in the mood for vampires, but something about the blurb struck a chord with me and so I took the plunge. The first thing I have to say is that I’ll ignore the fact that I listened to the audio book and instead I’ll concentrate on the story and Ms. Taylor’s great world building. Otherwise I would have given t [...]

    14. Oh. My. Lord!!! First off.I had a bit of trouble getting into this book. But it really had nothing to do with the boo k itself. I've been on a rom-com kick lately and just had a bit of trouble getting into the paranormal vibe when I started reading this one. However.Once I was a few chapters in, I could not put this book down. What started with a slow start, finished all too quickly. Keary Taylor is an amazing author and I have not yet read a book by her that I didn't love. Her writing is descri [...]

    15. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for this opportunity. If you are a fan of The Originals, Buffy, Beautiful Creatures or Twilight you must read this book! House of Royals was unique and different but still had undertones of all my favorite paranormal shows and books. Alivia, our main character, is 22 years old and has been on her own since her mother died tragically when Alivia was 19. One day she gets a call saying her father, whom she has never kno [...]

    17. I not only have a love/dislike relationship with this author, (Loved some of her books, disliked some) I also am not a fan of vampire novels so when I got this book I was excited and hesitant all at the same time. Well there was no need to be hesitant as I freaking loved this book. Here's whyThe writing was absolutely beautiful. I loved all the details and descriptions and truly felt like I was there in this world.The characters were interesting and I loved every single one of them whether good [...]

    18. I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC, in exchange for an honest review.I have read every single one of Keary Taylor’s books, and I can honestly say that I absolutely LOVE her work. I love her writing style and her character development.We immediately meet Alivia Ryan as she’s had to move her entire life to the small town of Silent Bend, Mississippi. She’s introduced to a whole new world where nothing is at it seems. What she does know is that the town is creepy and eerie and no one likes [...]

    19. We kiss like there's no tomorrow, which there isn't.This is it.This is the end of Ian and Alivia.This book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! This is my first novel by Keary Taylor, and I just happened upon it while perusing the Firstreads giveaways. For some reason, it caught my attention, and I just had to have it. I downloaded it as soon as I could and started reading it right after. And I was NOT disappointed! This novel was a whirlwind of emotions. Yes, I know the vampire genre has sort of been overdo [...]

    20. This was a pretty good book. Alivia Ryan grew up with a single mother and living in Colorado. When she was 19 years old, her mother was killed by a girl texting on her phone. She never knew her father but only knew that he was a man her mother met at a party and had a one night stand. She finds out that her father passed away and she's rich. She moves to Mississippi to his mansion and the small town he lived in. The people that work in the mansion will not look her in the eyes and they seem to f [...]

    21. It has been quite some time since I have encountered a book with such a story. I love these types of adventures that will swallow you into the story line, and play out in your mind like your favorite movie. House of Royals is just that kind of book. Honestly, isn't every story that I have had the pleasure of experiencing from Ms. Keary Taylor, but this one quietly just slipped into the number one spot on my list. The carefully crafted story here is detailed precisely building a story of mystery [...]

    22. 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 wha [...]

    23. I enjoyed this author's previous angel series, so when this book came out, I instantly one-clicked it on . I'm glad I got this book. It was good. There were some things that happened in the book you can see coming, but the end was a total plot twist that left me craving the sequel. I have to know what happens next! I mean, vampires! Vampire hunters! Rogue vampires, and bitchy vampires! What could be better than that?I am giving this book five glittery stars for being a great book and a total sur [...]

    24. DNF. Not sure what it was, but I just couldn't really get into this one. Started off strong, but then it took a turn. I am not rating it because I am not 100% sure I want to give up on it. I plan to try it again another time. Could be my mood. *shrug*

    25. A bit different and satisfying than other vampire books. Glad I picked this up, or downloaded it :) And I was not expecting the ending, so I am on to book two now.

    26. Vampire Royals, Politics, and Secrets. . . Didn't know what to expect when reading yet another vampire book, but this one was a good one. The main character is in a unique situation and has to play in the dangerous games of vampire politics that will always end with someones death. Having the world be about more than just vampires vs. humans is an interesting twist that adds a whole new layer of complexity that pulls you in and makes you want to read more.Recently bestowed an estate in Mississip [...]

    27. **New author alert** This is the first book I've read by the author and I wasn't disappointed. The author writes a really good plot from the beginning till the end. There is no HEA in this book and man what a cliffhanger but it's so worth it. I really enjoyed reading this book and love how the author makes you feel a connection with the characters. This vampire read is like no other and totally different then what I've read before.Alivia doesn't know who her father is or anything about him but a [...]
