Goth girl Raven can never catch a break. Just when her and Alexander's relationship seems to be out of danger---think again. Alexander's parents, Cassandra and Constantine are the classic vampires. Cassandra is pale with the confidence of a queen and the attitude of a movie star, and Raven realizes that she's admiring her role model more than her own mother. Alexander's father, Constantine is the classic vampire all the way, dark with incredible eyes, with a cane and cape in tow.
All is well until they realize and fret over Raven suffering the same fate as Alexander's grandmother: alone in the world because of her love for vampires. They make to move back to Romania now that the feud with the Maxwells (Jagger, Luna, and their younger brother) is over! Who could bare to be seperated from their true love? No one, especially not our dark duo; so the pair create a devious plan to spread rumors so the mansion will go unsold. Which works.. until it doesn't.
Raven seems to grow mentally mature in this book than in the others. She and Becky see eye to eye about their boyfriends and their "not so close" friendship. And she also thinks about her future--not as a vampire but career and passions. She's able to see past Trevor's front and tells the truth of him to him, thus changing him (slightly) into a better (yea right) arch nemisous/stalker. (Seriously, read about the portait in his room and dare to tell me otherwise.)
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. And the "Naper Paper" I'm assuming is supposed to be a shortened, easier try at explaining the dreaded Senior Project. :P
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.

Trevor continues to annoy and baffle me, due to the fact that he loves to pick on raven but also like to hit on her. Does he love her or what? He can't seem to pick. My Fave part of the book was the auctioning of Raven's painting, when it was bought for a high bid from someone raven didn't really expect.
The book was fun and Funny as well, I loved there up and down moments. It also made me cry a little, but I highly recommend this book.
Raven is spending her summer in bliss. She and her vampire boyfriend Alexander are alone in his mansion, cuddling in his coffin, spreading black rose petals aplenty. Love is in the air, and Raven can see no sun on her favorite cloudy horizon. But fall comes, and with it, Alexander's parents. While Raven longs to be part of the family permanently, the heads of this dark household may have other plans.
When the mysterious note arrives in Alexander's mailbox, both he and Raven know change is coming. Raven is also dreading the return to school and junior year. She is being asked about a future career, when all she wants is the immortal bite from Alexander and to spend the rest of her life keeping him company while he paints. One of her first assignments is to pair up with the dreaded preppie Trevor Mitchell and interview each other about what they really want. She has always wanted to be a vampire, but what if she had a mortal future? Best friend Becky helps her come up with an alternative idea for an alternative girl.
In the meantime, it seems like everyone in Dullsville has spotted Alexander's elegant parents except Raven. She takes matters into her own hands and is soon invited to a delicious elegant dinner with the vampire crew. But then her mom and dad invite them over for dinner, and Raven is mortified at the contrast. Oddly enough, the parents hit it off, and all seems well again.
Then Alexander reveals why his parents have returned, and it is a reason that could split up the pair geographically forever.Read more ›
