Title: Royal Blood
Author: Ellen Schreiber
Published: June 2009
Description: Summer break is over, and Raven is hardly eager to be returning to Dullsville High. Not only does school mean daily interaction with preppy pest Trevor Mitchell, but her sleep-filled days and romantic nights with her immortal boyfriend, Alexander, must come to an end. Plus the shock of morning classes isn't the only change in store.
An unexpected letter turns up at Alexander's mansion—announcing his parents will be coming to town. And once they arrive, just about everyone has had a sighting of the macabre couple except Raven. What could be delaying Alexander from introducing Raven to them? Could Alexander be hiding something about his parents' homecoming?
When Raven is finally invited to the most thrilling dinner party of her life, the next turn of events could transform her entire future with Alexander. The sixth book in Ellen Schreiber's bestselling Vampire Kisses series takes an unusual twist in the continuing romance of Raven and Alexander.
I Give This book 3.5 Stars
This book was a little bit of a let down after book 5, although I still enjoyed it. Raven finally gets to meet the elusive vampire parents. They are everything I expect and don't expect them to be. It seemed such a typical teen reaction book. The parents do something drastic and so in return Raven and Alexander overreact. I did think both scenes of the two sets of parents having dinner together were great. Also, enjoyed watching Alexander get to showcase his art. Although this book does raise a question for me (surprised I haven't thought about it before). Do vampires age for awhile and then stop? In this series, vampires can be born and "grow up", but I don't think they die. So, at what point to they stop aging? Confusing for me really...
