"Wonderful Coming of Age Vampire Saga! I really enjoyed the storyline of Katrina where her you have a young teenager by all appearances and class is the sweet innocence that a teenager should be, but by no means is she.. Katrina is a WELL trained warrior with her vampire speed and a mastery of her weapons. A strong warrior that I for one wouldn't want as my enemy!! If you are looking for a wonderful book that is full of a mixture of romance, love and a dark side twist.. Then I recommend Katrina, The Beginning to be a awesome introduction to the Royal Blood Chronicles." -- Amazon reviewer

As a Vampire being hunted was nothing new. Finding out that I had to save those that were hunting us was!

Katrina is thrust into something she never could have imagined growing up in the aristocracy of Europe. Once the fashion of the day, and girlish gossip filled Katrina and her new friends days, but their lives changed the instant their race was threatened and they were chosen as the Five, and the protectors of not only the vampire race, but all the peaceful races of the world!

Katrina, the Beginning book one, chronicles the story of Katrina from the age of seventeen in the series - Royal Blood Chronicles - it's full of romance, friendship, adventure and betrayal in a fast paced, fun read. It's filled with strong female characters in a lush, beautifully drawn fantasy world built and wonderfully written by Elizabeth Loriane.

>> I am a fan of YA novels. I am also a fan of vampire novels. Between my two loves, I had thought I had experienced the majority of what the genre could provide me, until I discovered independent author, Elizabeth Loraine!

>> Elizabeth Loraine has captured the young adult vampire world in a new and refreshing way and I would thoroughly recommend this series to anyone for a brief respite from the real world of today.

>> John Daniels, author and publisher writes: "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 bloodlust."

Meet the Author

I grew up in a small northern Minnesotan town, married my high school sweetheart, had two beautiful children and as soon as we could, we moved to a warmer climate. I have worked with my husband building and decorating custom homes for years. After loving every kind of vampire book, movie, and series, I decided that I wanted to know more. I can write a book I thought, how hard can that be? Well....very hard. But I stuck to it and finished my first book Royal Blood Chronicles Book One, Katrina, The Beginning, in August 2009. There are now eight books in that series; The Protectors, The Dark Prince, Cain, the Quest, Bloodline and Legacy, Redemption and Destiny, and book nine will be out soon. The feedback has been great. I have also released Phantom Lives - Collier, and new paranormal series, book two of that series Phantom Lives - Power, book three to be out around Christmas. I also have just published book one of my Shifter Chronicles - Green River. My parents always told me that I could do anything that I wanted, work hard, study, and do it right. I believe that and live that way every day.

I started writing this new vampire series for teens and their moms because I myself wanted something different to read. I was tired of all the modern versions of vampire books, there had to be more to these long lived beings. Where had they been, what had they seen? I wanted, no I NEEDED to know more so Royal Blood Chronicles was born! Strong female characters and action and adventure mixed with romance, friendship and a historical backdrop. Phantom Lives continues with another strong female charater, which is very important to me. Phantom Lives is a modern day, paranormal romance, filled with mystery, magical places and beings.
