Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of BRD’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

House of Judges by Keary Taylor

 

Book Synopsis:

Alivia once led a House full of immortal vampires, but now everything has been stripped away. Her friends have turned their backs on her, convinced she betrayed them and their Born kind. Taken prisoner to the King’s Court, she awaits her trial. But the sins of her father threaten to blacken her chances of clearing her name.

Alivia toyed with King Cyrus’ heart—and now, he’s going to make her pay. Perhaps with her life. Hidden in the belly of the castle, truths will come to light, and the surface of the King’s brutality and the horrors of the castle have barely been scratched. Prepare to be judged…

 

Book Review:

Mon Dieu! I love this series! As the fourth installment of the House of Royals, the author Taylor takes us further into Alivia’s journey into a leadership position she never desired or thought even existed. Even though this is a paranormal book, Taylor’s writing is a contradiction – bring a very human, normal aspect.

Her words create a world of imagery. And, even though you may have a handle on the story with predictions, this is Taylor’s story. She has control over the story, and tells it very well. (This is why we read book – let the author delivery a story in a fantastic way!) There is so much raw emotion and depth in this book.

Alivia must answer for misgivings. She has played a dangerous game. She willfully entered a love triangle, knowing exactly where her heart belonged. She knew how dangerous and sadistic the King of vampires really was; yet, she toyed with his heart. She was aware of the trouble brewing in her territory, but used others to settle personal grudges. Yes, she will be judged and must answer for her transgressions.

We are all faced with difficult decisions and the impacts of our actions. Some stories acknowledge the dilemma(s) but breeze through either the decision making process or its concussion(s). Not this book. It’s so real and organic – it gives a natural outlook to the supernatural.

But, don’t think you can read this fourth book and feel closer. This is Keary Taylor we’re talking about. There is a huge cliff hanger at the end that opens a whole different story and the conclusion (I think) to the House of Royals in book five…

This is a must read, only if you read the first three. And, if you haven’t, do it! C’est bien, Taylor!
