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.

    "Delightful "Wodehousian" Whodunnit"

    Rhys Bowen channels P. G. Wodehouse and Bram Stoker in a marvelous screwball mystery that still has me laughing. Even the brief book description accompanying this audiobook had me smiling. Great idea for an entry in the series and Bowen delivers.

    Story
    "Too much of the Masked Ball duplicated"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this to a friend if they read the Masked Ball at Broxley Manor. Too much is duplicated.<br/><br/>If they hadn't read the other, than I might recommend this one


    What was most disappointing about Rhys Bowen’s story?

    This story felt rushed and she seemed to be pushing the characters to do things. I does not flow as well as her other books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Katherine Kellgren?

    Katherine is fine and I have grown to expect her for Georgie. But not Katherine's best work either.


    Do you think Royal Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this book, needs to be left alone.


    Any additional comments?

    Not one of Mrs Bowen's best. But I still love the characters and want to see what happens to them.

    "Main character more annoying this time around"

    Although I enjoy the narration the main character seem more annoying than usual. At times I just wanted to skip to the end and figure out who the killer was.

    "Another good book in the series"

    I liked the book, but I found it slightly less interesting than the previous ones in the series (3 of them I think). The vampire aspect was a bit strange since it has Lady Georgeanna (sp?) wondering if there really are vampires. She has seemed so down to earth and rational in the prior books that I was a bit put off by her fear that there really might be vampires. It didn't ruin the book. I still liked it, just not as much.

    I am an avid reader and listener. I especially love imaginative fiction when I am "brain frazzled" from heavier stuff.

    "Great job"

    Another very enjoyable mystery. This one a bit spookier in parts. It's a light fun read. I want always to hear more.

    Story
    "another unexpected adventure with lady Georgiana"

    The narrator is wonderful & captures individual characters very well. The story is fun and easy. I'm hoping the relationship with Darcy moves forward and does not stagnate in "will they won't they " land. this particular book was read out of order in the series, but it wasn't an issue, since I've already read the first few and one after this. It was nice to get the origin story for Queenie, who shows up in subsequent adventures.

    Story
    "A Royal Wedding in Transylvania!"

    Imagine being sent to Transylvania in the middle of winter to attend a royal wedding. Compound that by the fact that you are traveling with a cockney maid who has never held a position for more than three weeks and knows nothing about her duties. During the festivities preceding the wedding there is a murder and the wedding party is trapped in a gothic mountain castle with a murderer. The inept maid goes missing. Another murder occurs and political rivals try to accuse you of murder. On top of that, you witness things that make you begin to wonder whether or not vampires actually exist! These are all things Georgie faces in this story.

    This is my favorite book in the series to date. Sleeping in this castle of intrigue would be enough to give anyone nightmares and make you fear that you will be attacked by vampires! The reader gives us another outstanding performance and this book moved along very nicely.
