Reviews for Katrina, the Beginning
Katrina by Elizabeth Loraine
From page one, I was so completely invested in Katrina. I have read several, SEVERAL (have I mentioned SEVERAL?) vampire novels recently. There are so many different ways to tell a great vampire story and Ms. Loraine hits on one of my favorites.
I noticed right from the beginning a darker, more forboding feel to Katrina, which takes place in the 1800s. Katrina, a young vampire, about to turn eighteen, is one of many in a royal family. Along with these vampires are the humans who watch them and protect them. Katrina's watcher, Quinn, has been with her since they were children. And from the start, I could tell that they both had a very special relationship.
Katrina grows up with just her father taking care of her, but it seems to work, as Kat is an independant, resourceful girl. She learned, from her watchers, how to fight and take care of herself. She immediately becomes a character that I can respect and take an interest in.
Katrina's world is coming to a halt, however, as all the clans come together due to several attacks on the vampires. In coming together, Katrina meets four other young vampire girls her age who seem to be fated to be together. They all have special powers that complement each other and in the process make great friends.
There are several love interests from Katrina through this story, and I'll admit, I couldn't decide who I was rooting for. But, between the subtle love story and intense magic and strong vampire women, I was swept away in this story.
I'm so excited to pick up the next installment! by Christy @ Captivated Reading
