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…

House of Royals was a completely new and original vampire story. It was just the right story, exactly when I needed something fresh and new.

Something about Taylor's writing style just clicked.

I found the pace absolutely perfectly balanced with the story telling. It was a slow builder but all of a sudden I was completely reeled in and had me totally hooked. One of those reads that you want to turn past the last page and find more, or in my case, beg for an ARC of book two House of Pawns to find out what happens nexts.

FYI, House of Pawns is coming out December 15, 2015.

This was my first read by Keary Taylor but as you can tell it won’t be my last.

I received this copy of House of Royals from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for a honest review.
