Publisher's Summary

The Royal Spyness series continues with an all-new mystery of "the British monarchy...a wedding in Transylvania...[and] wonderful characters." (#1 New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris).

Penniless and 34th in line to the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch finds herself in a truly draining state of affairs. To escape her hateful brother, Georgie accepts an invitation from the Queen to represent the royals at a wedding in Transylvania. But at the macabre- looking castle, Georgie finds the bride with blood running down her chin, and a wedding guest is poisoned. Now it's up to Georgie to save the nuptial festivities before the couple's vows become: to love and to cherish, till undeath do them part.

    "One of my favorites of the series"

    This book is one of my favorite books in the Royal Spyness series. There is a lot of adventure & some new characters, but the best part is all the narration of the different foreign visitors. Great cozy listen!

    "So far my favorite from the series"

    This is such a FUN listen series, you have got to get it if you are in the mood to kick back and listen to some awesome, talented voice talents and some mystery, mixed with humor, love, suspense and well british humor. GET the series, you won't regret it. This is one is far my favorite, due to very colorful characters and the the talent of the narrator. You will laugh out loud and identify with the characters!!!

    Story
    "Campy Vampy"

    Some reviews haven't raved this one because of the mention of vampires. It didn't bother me and the introduction of Queenie more than made up for many of the less likeable parts of the story. So far probably the most humorous of the series.

    "Favorite Story Yet!"

    This has been my favorite story out of the series so far! A castle in Transylvania, vampires, hidden passageways,Darcy O'Mara (sigh), and murder! Another outstanding performance from Katherine Kellgren as well! There were so many characters for her to perform, and she did an outstanding job at it! Shes one of the top narrators out there, if not THE top in my opinion. If you're new to the series, I'd recommend starting from the begining, as you dont want to miss out on any of the action!

    "Good Adventurous Fun"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For some reason all Royal Spyness books are a good laugh. At times they can feel a little repetitive with some elements but each story is full of detail and fun. One can pick up almost any book in the series and just enjoy!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not the edge of my seat, but it was fun! And the climax of the book keeps you greatly entertained!


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Queenie!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could then YES!

    "Enjoyable, light, humorous"
    If you could sum up Royal Blood in three words, what would they be?

    See my headline: Enjoyable, light, humorous


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't say I was on the edge of my seat. But it did keep me engaged and wanting to know more. While the 'mystery' wasn't all that hard to figure out, the character interaction kept me going.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Belinda!! Such a tramp. Such a schemer!

    "Crikey - character voices are dashed grating"

    Good story but the voices of Queenie and Fig are too too irritating. No more of this series for now.

    This whole series is just perfect to listen to while I work. I run a small specialty food business and work alone often. Theses stories are good entertainment.
