Reviews (Excerpts)

- "Graps you from the very beginning and keeps reading. Wonderful beginning to new and exciting series. Elizabeth takes you to a world unlike other vampire worlds and keeps wanting to explorer more." - Lee Oak (Amazon)

- " This is a page-turning, swashbuckling adventure told by a gorgeous seventeen year old vampire on the verge of womanhood. Katrina and her companions are girls who love fancy clothes and romantic gossip; but when their race is threatened, they become Women Warriors, using their paranormal talents, lightning speed, and razor sharp blades to wreak deadly justice. By turns tense and funny, this is a great read for fans of blood-lust." - John Daniels

- "Elizabeth Loraine's style of writing is fast paced enough to be excited but still deep enough to let you get involved in the characters. By the end of the book I was cheering for the girls and worrying about all the characters. It's always an exciting thing for me when the main characters are girls who can take care of themselves. Women power all the way! A great story with wonderful characters!" - Jamie Ryder

- "[...] If you like reading Paranormal/Vampire books,than this is a must read. I must warn you though...once you get the first book..it is a guarantee that you will be getting the rest. I won't tell any spoilers about this book or series...I will just tell you that this series and Elizabeth Loraine is on the top of my must read/favorite author list." - Susan Jackson

- "[...] If you enjoy, romance, action and adventure tossed with vampires you'll love Katrina The Begining." - Amanda Alberson

About the Author

Elizabeth Loraine on Indie Author News
Amazon changed everything for Elizabeth Loraine. The idea that she could possibly write a book and see it in print herself was very exciting. She heard about it one morning on the Today show and a few weeks later she started writing.

That was in 2009 and Elizabeth Loraine finished the first book of the Royal Blood Chronicles in four months. She still sent some query letters out, but soon decided that wasn’t for her. So - instead she started writing book two and then book three.

Then Amazon changed everything again with the Kindle. She wasn’t techy at all, but knew someone who was. She came in later than other authors who had found eBook success already, but with her sister helping formatting, they designed new covers together and launched the first ebook in the fall of 2010.

There are now seven books in this series and two in her other YA Fantasy series Phantom Lives.
