It's tough being a Queen, sigh. It's official, and Wlodek, the jerk in charge, has finally accepted that Lissa is a Queen, and their ain't nutin he can do about it! Lissa returns from her other-worldly mission, only to be hit head on with a shocking revelation, a newbie vamp, and a psycho killer problem. Just when I thought this story of Lissa's couldn't get any cooler, more complicated, intense or dramatic, it did. I loved every chapter, every paragraph of this book! The new characters that were introduced from Blood Domination have entered Lissa's world with only a raised brow from her fellow vamp family. As Lissa learns more about her heritage and the vampire history, she becomes even more dangerous to the vampire council with her powers. In order to pursue Xenides, the very scary vampire that is after Lissa, the council coordinates with a U.S. Government special task force, the werewolves, and of course Lissa, to take his ass down. Xenides has waged war on Lissa's family until she goes to him willingly. He only wants Lissa for her blood, which allows anyone that drinks it the use of her powers. Meanwhile on the home front, Merril has taken in a lot of house guests, including a servant that wishes to stay at Lissa's side. Oh my gosh, this little guy is too cute, but when he has to return home, it's so sad because not only has Lissa gotten attached, so have I! The story was intense, but had it's softer moments, with a dash of sexy times included, which made it more real. I felt like although I was taking in a lot of new information, more layers to the existing story, that I never was overwhelmed. The story line was relatively easy to follow, and very action packed! I really appreciated the investigating, and fighting, especially the fighting! I can truly say I can see how *PNR readers can get discouraged by the turn this series has taken, however, the merging of paranormal with science fiction in this case is the most fascinating take on vampirism I have come to read to date. Also, the fact that I love my sexy times included in my stories, and the author fades to black when it comes to sex scenes doesn't take away from the story or disappoint me in any way, shape, or form. I seriously love the direction Lissa is going, and I can't wait to get into Blood Queen, Book 6!! * PNR= Paranormal Romance Editor's note; The series is about a vampire, and has werewolves as well but then introduces other planets, where the vampires, and werewolves originated from, which takes on a sci-fi nature with the time travel, and portals. Narrator Review Traci Odom returns for the next installment of the Blood Destiny Series, Blood Royal. Now that the story has added new worlds, we have new characters. Traci's job just got harder, and she steps up to the plate like a pro! I can't even count how many different characters are in the book now, but she does an excellent job of differentiating them well enough that I know who is speaking at any given moment. How awesome of a talent is that! On top of the great and wonderful talent of Traci's, the quality of the sound and recording is fantastic as well. Throughout the entire production the sound is seamless. I love Traci Odom, and I love Blood Royal, and I highly recommend this entire series!

If you love Urban Fantasy and vampires and haven't read any of this series you are so missing out! This is one of the better seried out there and the books get better and better. There is so much action going on that you lose yourself in the story. There are so many wonderful characters and you develop feelings for each and every one because they are so well written. I can't really say anything about the happenings of this book because it would spoil it. Even though this book was shorter than the others it was packed full of information and exciting events. I can't wait to start on the next one. 5+++ stars

Blood Royal is the fifth book in the Blood Destiny series by Connie Suttle. The story of Lissa, the unintentional (and unconventional!) vampire continues. The character development is rich and satisfying. Lissa becomes acquainted with her real father, who is instrumental in helping her understand her unique abilities and perhaps how she can use them for the betterment of the universe. Lissa's contentious relationship with the vampire aristocracy, and particularly the vampire council, escalates as she grows in her abilities in spite of the constant efforts by the men in her life to control her. Their inability to adapt their relationships with Lissa, considering her increasingly powerful abilities as she develops into a full Vampire Queen, is a constant source of frustration for Lissa. She is faced with perceived physical violence, mental cruelty that evokes disturbing memories and emotions from her past, and efforts at intellectual and emotional control over her by nearly all the men who surround her. But along with her blossoming talents as a Queen, Lissa's enormous ability to forgive those transgressions by the people she loves only expands even further. The storyline also advances, finding Lissa and crew in a cat and mouse game of chase with the evil vampire Xenides, who is determined to destroy the vampire aristocracy and to possess Lissa, and all of her unique abilities, for himself. The denouement is fast paced and very satisfying, leaving the reader feeling like he just pushed back from a delicious meal! And there's more to come! Lissa is whisked off at the last moment to engage in battle and attempt to save the forces of good ... Well, you'll just have to wait for Blood Queen for that story!
