Book Review - House of Royals, By Keary Taylor

Hello hello everyone!  I hope that your week has been going great.  I have been making more time to read each day so that means more reviews for you all!  (insert cheeky grin here)

I love reading all kinds of books that are part of a series.  Today's review is the first book in a new series that I have found.  I loved it and I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the books in the series.

Book Title: House of Royals (House of Royals #1)
Author: Keary Taylor
Publishing Date: June 21, 2015
Page/Word Count: 224 pages


Every town has its history and skeletons, but Silent Bend, Mississippi’s are darker than most. Ruled from the shadows by the House—the immortal Born and their aging, enslaved Bitten—everyone knows not to go out after dark and that the police will never look into crimes involving blood.

Alivia Ryan didn’t know the man who claims to be her father through a will even existed until she inherits the Conrath plantation. Instead of the sleepy house she expects, she finds a mansion and a staff who look at her with fear in their eyes.

Ian Ward tried to kill Alivia the first time they met, and then insisted he train her to defend herself against the House, who he claims will try to manipulate and take her in for their own political reasons. And the growing attraction between them will threaten their lives—Ian is a sworn enemy of the House.

In Silent Bend, people disappear, the threat of a demented King and the legend of his resurrecting Queen hang over everyone’s heads, and proving loyalty means far more than blood. You’d better watch who you trust in this town…

Pros: Great story, great characters, great flow
Cons: Needs more back story
Overall rating: Highly recommended!


Alright so I picked up this book on a random grab.  I love when I get those lists in my e-mail of books that I can grab.  I am so glad that I did grab it!  This book was a great read and I couldn't put it down once I started reading it!

Alivia, the wonderful main character, is a very strong woman.  And I just love how Keary spelled her name.  She starts out nervous but by the end of the book she is a force.  She is like those rain storms that start small, with the sprinkles, and by the end of it a tornado has ripped through a small town.  She is definitely a great leading characters.

I loved Ian as well.  I knew as soon as he was introduced to Alivia that he was going to be with her.  There was just something about the two of them that I felt click from the get go.  I am not going to give too much away, but I feel even more for him as their relationship grew.  You will just have to read the book to see!

I will admit I am going to have to get my hands on the rest of the books.  I need to know what happens!!
