Following Katrina in her adventure has been a delight. The Protectors delves right into the story with a very natural rhythm. Although I would consider the Royal Blood Chronicles to be targeted towards young adults, this series has been crafted to maintain the deserving attention of all. Katrina as the heroine of the story allows you to believe in her destiny, her conviction, and her power. Book two of Loraine's Royal Blood Chronicles bridges continents and cultures with vivid descriptions and twists of plot that will leave you curious for more.

The Protectors was a page-turning straight through read for me. Not a book that would gather dust in my mind. From cover to cover your imagination is taken on a well laid out action-packed adventure. If you are picking this book up as your first introduction to the series, you'll love it because you can jump right in and won't feel like you're missing out on anything. The author has balanced the right amount of history with the progression of the story. Interwoven through the book are threads of romance, love, and deep-rooted friendship. If you are following the Royal Blood Chronicles be surprised at the twists of fate Loraine has developed, they may throw you for a loop. I can't wait to see what happens in Book Three "The Dark Prince".

This book was amazing I felt like I was in Katrina following every move she maid, every tear she wept, and love the she has. I have never cried so hard over a book I was reading I just hope to find out in the other books she finds Damion. I would recomend these series of books to anyone and its nice to finally read about woman who are in charge.

Words really fail me right now. I couldn't put down this book. It followed Katrina so well, that even with my head pounding from all the medical tests I had run on me while I was reading it, I couldn't stop! I am so in love with these characters that I haven't touched my tv! I missed American Idol because I couldn't put this book down. I can not wait to read books 3 & 4.

Katrina: The Beginning introduces the royal vampire family in this world. Katrina begins as an only daughter raised by her father, the ruler of the vampire family in the Old World. It introduces the main characters and the background of the series. Katrina meets her new "vampire sisters" and learns that they are destined to be the Protectors of the world. This role of the Protector is not only to protect the vampire race but also their Human watchers, the elves, witches, fairies and more in the story. At the end of book one, Katrina is happy and ready to take on the world.

The Protectors continues by delving into the girls backgrounds and allows you to get to know each one in more detail. The Protectors are:

* Katrina or Kat
* Katherine or Kate
* Rosalinda or Rosa
* Eleanor or El
* Arltetta or Letta

The author, Elizabeth Loraine, provides the reader with family trees of each characters as well as their race. The story is a resemblance of stories like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Each story is intricately woven into one strong story of power, passion, adventure, and love.

Each of the Protectors represent different personalities of strong female characters. The story is an example of strong female vampires who can fight and love at the same time. They are a great representation of multiple female archetypes that the female reader can identify with. Many times the vampires in the stories are powerful males that seduce helpless women but here the Protectors are the powerful and intelligent vampires. This is a rarity among vampire stories. It is a must read for any female fan of any age.

It is a story that you can read in one sitting because you can't put it down. It was easily my favorite of the three.

This book would be a wonderful gift for both the teenager who loves Eclipse but is looking for more of an active female character as well as those adults who love the adventures and stories of traditional epic heroic tales.

This series has me caught in its web and my husband may never forgive me for purchasing them all in one go! Lol. I may have to wait until my birthday next month and the wait for the rest may just kill me! I honestly love this series. The storyline is memorable and action-packed and the characters are unforgettable. I love that it seems as though the story will never end!

I loved the House of Night series, The Vampire Academy series, and Twilight Saga series but this is making into my top 10 best books I have ever read...this almost makes you want to jump into the books and be a character... I actually can put myself in that place but I never could with those others, I loved the series but my imagination runs away with this series..

I find that when I find a good book it is hard to put it down. This book and this whole series have been some of my all time favorites.

The pure love and adventure for Katrina and Damien is breath taking. But Damien is lost. Can Katrina as part of the Protectors keep to their life journey?

This book was a pure joy to read. What an adventure with my mind!

Again, this was a great book by Ms. Loraine. I find her writing style very fast paced and I like that. The character's have grown into their powers and it's getting exciting. I love the addition of the guys and they help strengthen the Protectors. I'm anxious to see who is included in the group next. And there are Elves, I love elves!! My name does mean Elf Ruler....so I'm partial. :) Anyway, I'm very glad that this book is about more than just vampires and humans. It makes me think of Lord of the Rings and that's a great story to be compaired too. I'll soon get book 3 and I'm sure I won't be able to put it down like the first two.
