"Rene', what will you do if I kick his ass?" I jerked my head toward Tony.
"Nothing, as long as you do not inflict permanent harm," Rene' smiled slightly. I got up to go after Tony, but Wlodek hauled me back.
"We will not allow a brawl between our two youngest," he declared and settled me back in my seat. "Now, Anthony, where may we find your father and does he have other children?"
Xenides is searching for Lissa and out for blood. Nothng less than total destruction is his ultimate objective, beginning with the Vampire Council. After all, much of his elite fighting force was destroyed by Wlodek and his allies on a single night.
Now, Xenides must regroup and looks to command the dregs of vampire rogues and human criminals to accomplish his goals.

I have enjoyed the series so far....both books and audio.......love Lissa's character.......the stories are great and I have finished a book in 24 hrs......looking forward to the next one......
Avid Reader and Listener of books in the Sci fi section I also like to read real life stories, I am just a really mixed reader
I loved the series but I would like to add there was one irritation with over use of the I think it was just used way to many time through out the whole series
absolutely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good book
loved them all
I listened to them over and over
I am a Wife, a Mum and a Grandma. I am also strong willed and wilfil at times. I have worked all my life and drempt for wining the lottery
I like the fact that Lissa seems to be getting a backbone at last and starting to stand up for herself.
I have read the whole series at least three times and so know the story well. I have found it difficult to take to some of the voices Traci Odom has given some of the characters. Particularly Kiffrin who is described as the most beautiful man ever in his middle twenties although hs is millions of years old. He sounds like an old man not a twenty-five year old. Roff has a somewhat irish accent - really odd. I hope to heavens she does not do the same with the twins in the next book! It took me ages to get used to the voices BUT if you haven't read the books and given your own imaginary voices to the characters then I am sure she did a reasonable job.
I really felt when the partner of one of the regular characters passed away after a long ill. My heart ached I could understand the tears and later the anger around this event.
I have always loved this series and can't wait for the rest of the books to come out on audible.
I am really enjoying all the books in this series so far. In fact I wish they would release the others quicker!!!
Entirely new take on vampires and werewolves which wanders off on a very different tangent compared to all the other books I have read of the same genre, there have been many.
At first I was thinking it was a bit out there but it's all coalescing surprisingly well.
Very worth the credits and the narrator, Traci Odom, does a fantastic job.
"A show of strength"
Still Lissa, you really can't help but love her, she's grown a lot through the books and is much stronger than the men in her life giver her credit for being.
Wonderfully consistent with the first four books in the series.
Te characters voices and the pacing of the narration are excellent as always.
Lissa is gradually holding back less and is chaffing at the constraints that the council tries to impose.
This book is a great addition to the series, each book builds nicely on those that came before it.
"Put a fork in me, I'm done!"
I just don't understand where Connie Suttle is going with this series. The first couple of books were interesting to me but now the story line is a jumbled up mess. I always found some things about lissa frustrating but now I find I can't stand her and I don't want to know what happens to her. I feel Connie Suttle's plot lines in this series are now too ambitious for her talent.
"This book has happy surprises!"
Sorrow, family, fortune.
Christine feehans dark warriors
Love the heroin, courage and friendships bring you easily into the story. Great narrator.
"she went some where, when the other are frozen?"
great, fast, more.
Everyone is complete, and well thought out. and the story line just move so fast.
love the voices of all the different people she has.
"Queen of the dead"
It was a good installment to the series. I still think there are too many characters at times Lissa is a great character that could be surrounded by men from an old age.
Yes, but with all the characters involved in the story, (if you don't Listen to the story through and through til the end) You may get the facts twisted.
The performance is a testament to the number o characters involved in the book.
just can't wait for the next installment of this very good Vampire story
"Incredibly cool story line & plot twists!"
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.
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!
"one of her best in audio so far!!!"
Yea!!!!!!!!!!!! of course!!!!!!!!!!!
I just love listening to the way the characters
interact & listening to them is almost as good
as seeing a movie.
I can really picture it in my head :)
I love the action almost as much as the joking around.
I couldn't imajin the charcters as well.
Will Lissa finally get a backbone or will she finally surcome to all the male dominance!
When will all the other books be made into audio. I cant wait. I have all her books in kindle & all available audio but I am anxious to her the next one. Please don't take so long in posting it. I will buy them all & have already recommended them to all who are receptive to me.
The new worlds provide enough adventure to keep you coming back. I am hooked. I am looking for the others in the series and recommend it to those who like the paranormal.
"Excellent series !"
One of the better 'vampire' series, read for yourself :-) You won't be sorry unless it's just not your cup of tea !
