An unexpected letter

Overview

Summer break is over, and Raven is hardly eager to be returning to Dullsville High. Not only does school mean daily interaction with preppy pest Trevor Mitchell, but her sleep-filled days and romantic nights with her immortal boyfriend, Alexander, must come to an end. Plus the shock of morning classes isn't the only change in store.

An unexpected letter turns up at Alexander's mansion—announcing his parents will be coming to town. And once they arrive, just about everyone has had a sighting of the macabre couple except Raven. What could be delaying Alexander from introducing Raven to them? Could Alexander be hiding something about his parents' homecoming?

When Raven is finally invited to the most thrilling dinner party of her life, the next turn of events could transform her entire future with Alexander. The sixth book in Ellen Schreiber's bestselling Vampire Kisses series takes an unusual twist in the continuing romance of Raven and Alexander.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Morrin
Raven Madison is not your average Dullsville teenager. While her preppy peers are playing soccer or shopping at the local mall, Raven spends her summer days at the macabre mansion of her boyfriend, Alexander Sterling—who just happens to be a vampire. As the summer draws to an end, Raven must return to high school and a more traditional lifestyle. There will be no more midnight romance in the cemetery or sleep-filled days in Alexander's coffin. To make matters worse, Alexander's mysterious parents are returning from a hiatus in Romania, the family's homeland. Elegant yet ghastly, Mr. and Mrs. Constantine Sterling represent an underworld that Raven yearns to join. The manuscript is rich in dialogue and features the ever-popular theme of forbidden love between vampire and mortal. Schreiber broaches the teenage romance appropriately for a young adult audience. Royal Blood is the sixth novel in the "Vampire Kisses" series. Reviewer: Jennifer Morrin

I fell in love with this seriers when I was waiting for Eclipes, the 3rd book in the Twilight Saga, to come out. I LOVE Alexander! If I could have any boyfriend it would be Alexander, Edward, Jasper, all mixed into 1! Anyway the book I can't wait!!! Ok. Question. Is anybody eles kind of mad the they just go and change the covers in the middle of the series! Cuz that made me mad! I have all the books in the origanl covers and this one will be different! :(

It all started when Raven first met Alexander after sneaking into the Mansion. Now Raven has got to meet her boyfriends' mysterious parents. Summer vacation's over, and its back to school, and already she got to do an project with none other her nemesis Trevor Mitchell. I didn't realize how fast I read through this book. The cover looks awesome and its interesting how Alexander's and Raven's parents meet and interact. Already I want to read book 7!

The best of it's series, and the series is pretty awesome. Good mental and emotional conflict with an ending that leaves you satisfied. From a mild yet powerful series, this book shows that things are never as they appear, and even people who seem to have everything in common, have difficulty seeing eye to eye all the time. As always, the author keeps a constant shot of reality based problems wound tightly within the surreality of the vampire world. Overall, Royal Blood is a good read if you liked the others. But I wish Jagger would come back into the story. Trevor's character is becoming less annoying and more sad. Pathetic sad, not tragic. Raven has always felt like an outsider in Dullsville. This fun story of how she embraces other outsiders in Alexander's parents is a great continuation to this enjoyable series.

I started reading this book yesterday and could not put it down. I hope there is a 7th book because I want alex and Raven to be together for along time. They are really cute together. I think Raven has found her soulmate in Alex as for Trevor they should be just friends.

This is a small book of 195 pages,so it doesn't take that long to read, but it was such a sweet story.There's no gore from these vampire's.their very kind and who would not want to leave in the mansion with the Sterlings.Raven and Alexander have fought to stay together in the rest of the Vanpire Kisses novels,and in this book they have done the same in a more mature way. You can tell that their love has grown.Alexander's parents have returned to the mansion to take him home with them to Romania,which means he will have to leave Raven.He refuses to go,so him and Raven think of ways and make plans were they can stay together.Plans including selling Alexander's painting's at the Dullaville's Annual Art Auction.And I have to add that Trevor buy's the paniting of Raven because we all know that he's secrectly in love with her.The one girl he could not have.I read all the books and I loved them ,they were fun and emotional.

Book Review Outline Book title and author: Royal Blood Ellen Schreiber Title of review: Reviewing Royal Blood Number of stars (1 to 5): 4 stars Introduction The theme of royal blood (vampire kisses book #6) is that if you put your mind to something you can make it happen. The intended audience of this book is young adults. Description and summary of main points Royal Blood, the sixth novel in the Vampire Kisses series, was written by Ellen Schreiber. Royal Blood is about a wild gothic teenager named Raven Madison who lives in a mind-numbing old town she likes to call Dullsville. Now that summer is over she will have to go back to school and leave behind her nights prowling the town with her everlasting boyfriend, Alexander. One night Alexander receives a letter saying his parents are coming back for a visit. He has to remove all of the decorating Raven has done to his dusty old mansion on the hill. As time goes by Raven hears little from Alexander, and everyone has seen his parents but her! What's a girl to do? Evaluation My favorite characters in this book are Raven and Alexander, but that's just my outlook. In this particular book of Ellen Schreiber's vampire kisses series new characters come in, such as Alexander's parents. The only way I would live in Dullsville is if I had a vampire boyfriend too. When Ellen first started the book series the town was a dullsville, but now so much has happened that it's more exciting. Somehow Raven still thinks it's dreary. I still consider the theme of this book to be that, if you put your mind to something you can make it happen, after I have read the book four times. You may say that Royal Blood is fairly similar to Twilight, because of the forbidden vampire/mortal love. Conclusion Royal blood is not my favorite work of fiction in the vampire kisses series, but isn't a horrific one either. I very greatly recommend this book to anyone teenager who is into the whole gothic, vampire love trend. Although, I would not recommend this wonderful book to anyone who hates gothic people, hates vampires, surprises, or is a strict parent. Your final review Royal Blood, the sixth novel in the Vampire Kisses series, was written by Ellen Schreiber. Royal Blood is about a wild gothic teenager named Raven Madison who lives in a mind-numbing old town she likes to call Dullsville. The only escape from the town is her everlasting, vampire boyfriend, Alexander, who lives in an old mansion atop Benson hill.

Overall the book just grabs you and pulls you into the world of vampires, black, and love, with Ellen's wonderful way of detailing. Other novels in the vampire kisses series are Vampire Kisses: The Beginning, Coffin Club, and Dance With a Vampire.

I LOVE THIS SERIES BUT WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS LAST INSTALLMENT. THIS BOOK DID NOT HOLD MY INTEREST LIKE THE OTHERS DID AND I FOUND MYSELF SKIPPING THROUGH THE PARAGRAPHS IN AN ATTEMPT TO GET THROUGH THE BOOK.

This book is very cute. Raven, a Goth, is a comical character. Despite her appearance, she a wonderful person. She is never afraid to express herself. In Royal Blood, Raven faces different problems: working with her "nemesis" on an essay and finding out what is wrong with her boyfriend, Alexander. Royal Blood shows how a couple must work together and how love and bravery can strengthen a person. At the end of the book the reader will see deeper into a certain character's feelings that, if the reader has read the other books in the series, is not completely unexpected, but still a bit shocking

I thought that Royal Blood could have been better. I thought while reading this series Raven would mature more as the books went but she didnt that much. The only really reason I am still going to finish the series is to see if Alexander will change her into a vampire cause seriously its been 6 books is he going to do it or not. And out of all the characters Trever is my favorite and I think Raven should give him a chance. Even though he is a complete butt hole sometimes. So to the cosumers this is not my favorite read and i wasnt completely sucked in it. but it was something to read if you want to burn some time.

Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, have had the perfect summer. With fall comes the beginning of school and the ending of their nights together. The arrival of Alexander's parents makes things worse. While they're seen all over town, Alexander waits to introduce Raven to his parents, making her feel both neglected and hurt. However, once they meet, she adores his parents and they seem to like her. Before long, Raven's family and Alexander's family start socializing - with Raven and Alexander on hand to make sure Raven's parents don't discover the truth. But Alexander's parents didn't come to town to visit, they came to sell the mansion and take their son back to Europe with them. When the devastating news hits the couple, they vow to stop the sale. ROYALD BLOOD continues with the romantic vampire saga of Raven and Alexander in a Gothic tale of love, loss, and friendship.

I'm actually surprised I like this series. Its cute, funny, charming, Alexander is a dream and Raven (although bit whiny and annoying) is very spunky and full of life. I actually finished books 1-6 in two days, granted that they are short. Definitely recommended. 4.2 stars.
