    While set in the present day, the book contains some of the rich, enticing details of historical fiction - with vampires! One part road trip novel, one part vampire adventure, In the Blood sets the stage for more with great characters and twists that will leave you wanting to pick up the next book. Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries and Interview with the Vampire will enjoy this glimpse into a reimagined Marie Antoinette.

    Most of what you know about Marie Antoinette is wrong. For starters, she was and is a vampire. The French Revolution wasn’t about taxes or food, it was about wiping out the vampires that had taken over the French nobility. The “Marie” that was beheaded was a mind-controlled double. The real Marie Antoinette is living as an antique dealer in Saint Louis, Missouri. She probably would have been okay had she stayed there. Marie discovers that a particularly important piece of her memorabilia has come Most of what you know about Marie Antoinette is wrong. For starters, she was and is a vampire. The French Revolution wasn’t about taxes or food, it was about wiping out the vampires that had taken over the French nobility. The “Marie” that was beheaded was a mind-controlled double. The real Marie Antoinette is living as an antique dealer in Saint Louis, Missouri. She probably would have been okay had she stayed there. Marie discovers that a particularly important piece of her memorabilia has come up for auction in New York City, and she goes there to bid on it. Having secured her last handkerchief, Marie decides to play it safe and murder a random bystander to switch clothes to confuse anyone following her. This in fact has the opposite effect, revealing that an unknown vampire was in the neighborhood. And there aren’t many unknown vampires. Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Marie’s longtime companion Fin starts falling in love with art student and barista Sybill Lysander, who seems to reciprocate. Peckish, Fin drains a homeless person in the park, thinking it will be ages before anyone finds the body. He’s wrong. This book is the first in the Blood Royal Saga, which is at least a trilogy. Good: There’s some nice detail about St. Louis. Less good: I found no one to root for in this book. Marie and Fin (who is secretly someone famous too) try to only drink from people who either want to die or deserve to die, but break that rule whenever it’s convenient. Their enemies (led by a mysterious person from Marie’s past) are even more ruthless and unconcerned with collateral damage. Sybill hasn’t actually murdered anyone before she inevitably becomes a vampire herself, but seems perfectly okay with the benefits of a life of crime as long as she isn’t having to pull the trigger herself or hang out with those that do. I think she’ll adjust to being a creature of the night just fine. Much of the vampire rules remains murky, as this is obviously a set-up book, raising lots of questions and putting people in peril to be resolved in future installments. There’s a heavy romance element which is abruptly derailed by the plot happening. To be honest, this just wasn’t my cup of tea. It might appeal more to those who loved the World of Darkness role-playing game setting, where vampires and other supernatural critters were secretly behind all interesting human history.

    Fin, the underappreciated, brooding immortal felt trapped and stifled in a relationship with Marie, his maker. Over the years he had started to feel more like her pet, than a companion. He loved her, resented her, even hated her. Then he met Sybill, a woman who made Fin feel, somehow, human once more. Marie was desperate to reclaim fragments of her old life, to the point she thought the gain of a small handkerchief was worth risking their secret. But it wasn't just her old life that was in dange Fin, the underappreciated, brooding immortal felt trapped and stifled in a relationship with Marie, his maker. Over the years he had started to feel more like her pet, than a companion. He loved her, resented her, even hated her. Then he met Sybill, a woman who made Fin feel, somehow, human once more. Marie was desperate to reclaim fragments of her old life, to the point she thought the gain of a small handkerchief was worth risking their secret. But it wasn't just her old life that was in danger of catching up with her, her adventure put them all in jeopardy. She had once been Marie Antoinette, but those who stalked her knew her well. The Widow Capet, had all but disappeared, but now it was time she faced the judgement of The Master, and his minions were closing in. Watch the drama unfold in Delia Remington's suspenseful novel In the Blood, Book One of the Blood Royal Saga. In the Blood, being written in alternating first person perspective, allows you to personally connect with each of the main characters. I particularly admired this since each one had such a distinctly different personality which was reflected perfectly with an alteration in writing style. Surprises unfold in the character driven plot that is wrought with suspense and questions, some of which are answered, and some which may haunt us throughout the series. Delia Remington writes in a style which is crisp, refreshing, and detailed. They give you their setting, and allow your own imagination to easily fill in the blanks. Young adult and adult alike will enjoy this tantalising read, and I, for one, can't wait to see where Delia Remington take us next.

    This book is something I haven't when I had time to read haven't been able to put down. It drew me in and kept me there. I cannot wait to read the next one because I am left with so many questions. The historical element had me wanting more to delve into. I am just a historical geek and the supernatural element was a great part of the story. If you are looking for a book that will capture your imagination then try this. I have already recommended it to people and that was before I finished. This book is something I haven't when I had time to read haven't been able to put down. It drew me in and kept me there.

    The characters were good, but the first person perspective of them wasn't always the best as it was hard to tell the difference between them at times. If they had been more of a climax at the end the book would have had a better rating.
