Crown of Death Reviews

    Keary has revived my love for this saga with Crown of Death.

    Let me give you a quick rundown - House of Royals is a series of 8 books; the first 5 books are Alivia's and the last 3books are Elle's. I personally feel that Elle's books should have been spin-offs within the series, as Keary has done with Crown of Death. You do not need to read the previous 8 books to read this one, however, I highly recommend doing so as we are first introduced to King Cryus in those books and you have a

    Let me give you a quick rundown - House of Royals is a series of 8 books; the first 5 books are Alivia's and the last 3books are Elle's. I personally feel that Elle's books should have been spin-offs within the series, as Keary has done with Crown of Death. You do not need to read the previous 8 books to read this one, however, I highly recommend doing so as we are first introduced to King Cryus in those books and you have a better understanding of who he is. And it just makes this book all the more better too.

    Crown of Death is the start of King Cyrus' series. He is the ruler of all Vampires; he's their creator. However, he's lived a very long and lonely life looking for his beloved wife to resurrect again and join him. Alivia made him believe it was her in order to save herself and her house. So now King Cyrus is even more distrusting of people and won't make the same mistakes again.

    Logan is living a normal life until she comes to meet Cyrus unexpectedly. Logan knows nothing of her birth parents and is thrown into a world she never knew existed or expected. I have to give it to Logan that she handles all of this new information quite well. She doesn't question the insanity of it, doesn't doubt anything being told her; she just accepts everything as is. For me, that is the only hard selling point that is not fully won over. I get that Logan is very open-minded and believes in reincarnation and has a rather unhealthy obsession with death (she's an apprentice to a mortician) but being told that she needs to die in a short time frame only to be reborn in 4 days later as vampire, yea, I think most sane people would question that big time. She just sort of accepts it and goes along with everything. Keary does do a good job of having Logan question herself and things along the way but it still felt like Logan was just too accepting immediately.

    Even while I had that one tiny problem, Keary does a great job with her story telling and getting Logan to finally accept what is to come, what her world will be. Cyrus doesn't explain to Logan who he is or what he wants from her - he learned that lesson the hard way already. And that's what makes this book extremely entertaining to read.

    Logan doesn't buckle under Cyrus or his domineering presence. She refuses to show fear or cowardness. She's very acidic in her characteristics and doesn't hold back on anything. Yea, Cyrus may have that worldliness about him, but Logan won't let that affect her. And knowing who her parents now are (won't give that exciting revelation away) makes this all the more exciting. For those who've read the previous books will really understand the excitement behind that.

    We get to know a bit more about Cyrus and how he came to be and his family's history, which I loved. We get a better understanding to him and I found myself empathizing for him, which was quite shocking based on his previous interactions in other books. We see a different side to Cyrus - a side that Logan brings out in him.

    I won't say much more except that Keary once again has me all-in on this series. I had been looking forward to Cyrus' books and knowing who Logan, I am even more excited to see where Keary takes this series.

    I need book two pronto!!!

    This book had the trifecta of a strong, possessive but serious alpha male with a strong and determined heroine, and kick ass story line without any sex... Damn, this author still made me feel the love between these two characters without any whatsoever kind of sex... I mean not even a damn kiss was given, but I still felt the love, and the chemistry between the hero and the heroine... Applause to this author for a job well done.

    For my special sauce.. If I had to describe this book with a song:

    🎶 All In The Name Of Love 🎶.. By Atlantic Starr

    Shout out to my buddy Starr that reminded me to read this book with her... My hat is off to you my friend because this was a damn good read... Thank you sweetie.. 😘😘

    Overall rating:

    My first read by Keary Taylor... how have I not read her other vampire series?

    I immediately went looking for the next book after finishing Crown of Death - this is a spin off??? (sort of). I'll definitely be checking out Taylor's other works and biting my nails to find out what happens in book 2.

    Even though there is a whole series before this book, it didn't feel like I was missing anything.

    Three and a half

    I very much liked how this book introduces Logan a budding mortician who initially feels very real. She’s grown up living a normal family life , knowing she was adopted and yet never doubting that she is loved. For years she’s struggled to make her own way in the world and it might not suit everyone but Logan has done what she can . A chance encounter with someone deadly near her home turns her life on its head as suddenly Logan and her friend are abducted meaning Logan quickly

    I very much liked how this book introduces Logan a budding mortician who initially feels very real. She’s grown up living a normal family life , knowing she was adopted and yet never doubting that she is loved. For years she’s struggled to make her own way in the world and it might not suit everyone but Logan has done what she can . A chance encounter with someone deadly near her home turns her life on its head as suddenly Logan and her friend are abducted meaning Logan quickly discovers that vampires are not just the stuff of nightmares. What’s even more incredible is that the sinister Cyrus agrees to let Logan live for one month before her time breathing is up ! Just what is going on ?

    Sometimes I read something and get totally surprised and that’s exactly what happened with this book . I’d probably expected something perhaps a little more like an urban fantasy with a kick ass heroine but Logan is in a class all of her own. She’s young admittedly but brave, outspoken, perhaps a little too full of herself at times but nevertheless she’s a character that keeps moving forward.

    Ok Cyrus is creepy, deadly and clearly lonely. I did think his character felt incomplete and even with the author adding some backstory he just felt wrong to me. I’m sure some will feel there’s an almost Stockholm vibe as the story progresses but unfortunately Cyrus just didn’t wow me. Was it predictable? Perhaps a little and the token villain thrown into Logan’s life felt rushed with a cringeworthy name. Upon reflection I feel the ending was inevitable but it leads towards Logan discovering much more about where she came from and who she wants to be.

  • Alissa

    3.5 stars. Good YA, mainly because the heroine is a mortician with a serious, serious case of Stockholm Syndrome, less so because the hero is a millennia-old vampire who behaves like a teenager.

    actually disappointing.

    Most of the dialogues seem so dramatic. The heroine crosses the line between naivety and imbecility way too many times in her desperation to portray herself as special. The story also stereotypes and uses drama to sensationalise what I deemed to be a rather predictable plot line.

    For a writer of such potential, this book is a poor effort in reusing clichés better left in the past decade.

    Juvenile, cliched, and full of overblown dramatics. Started off interesting but quickly devolved. The heroine was constantly talking about what a bitch she was, how full of "acid," but aside from one scene where she jumped to conclusions and blew up on her best friend she was ridiculously nice to everyone. Same with the oh-so-dangerous, "evil" bad boy who was really just a pile of fluff with a super-tragic past. The romance was cheesy and eye-roll inducing. The debt collector named Shylock was t

The debt collector named Shylock was the last straw (too bad she didn't incorporate more lessons from Shakespeare). I couldn't even finish it.

    But Logan isn’t going down without a fight. She makes him a deal. She will die, but first he must spend a month getting to know her, a month to change his mind. What she doesn’t expect is a month filled with displays of incredible wealth, spontaneous trips across the country, and unbelievable acts of immortal power. And as Logan spends her last days with Cyrus, she stops seeing the monster and begins to see a lonely, broken man she can’t walk away from. If she isn’t careful, it won’t just be her life she loses at the end of the month, but her heart as well...

    Crown of Death is a new standalone series set in the House of Royals world. It is not necessary to have read the House of Royals Saga to start this series.
