Different & Interesting Vampire Concept.

Caroline’s character was very interesting; the story was solely based on her life before and after her rebirth into a vampire. Her human life totally sucked when it came to two relationships from hell leaving her feeling like she would never find true love, however, once her change, things become clearer, her appearance changes, her strength changes, and her luck changes as she finally finds someone who adores and loves her for who she really is.

I was able to read her novel in an advanced(pre-production) format and loved it. I'm so happy to read a really good novel without all the filth. I don't read erotica and I'm very impressed A.S. Johnson doesn't copy other writers nor thinks she has to put filth in a novel to sell it.

If someone doesn't enjoy novels without having soft porn in them then don't buy or offer a review for one, if soft porn/erotica is your thing then don't read this book, you won't find it.

I'm sick of seeing people bas
I read an advanced pdf version of the novel.

I'll start with the disclaimer that I rarely read romance novels, so my review may be a little slanted because of this fact. Also, as this was an advanced version of the novel, I'll add that I hope that many of the typographical errors were resolved before going into print. I found them distracting and detracting from my enjoyment of the novel.

This is a light and easy read about Caroline, a woman who learns that she is destined to be a vampire empress.
I want to Thank A.S.Johnson for letting me read her book "Vampire Empress Chronicles", It was an honor to be chosen.
I enjoyed this book, full of romance and suspense with a twist, to the Vampire normalcy. Caroline is born a vampire, she's from a long line of royal Vampire's from Italy. She doesn't know that about her family history. Her family has always lived in New York.
Where she grew up, married her high school sweet heart, Worked for a newspaper, writing food articles. While putting her fa

First of all I want to thank A.S. Johnson for giving me the opportunity to read this book. Secondly I have to say that I've read a lot of different vampire books, but I really like this one. I like the spin on vampires that A.S. Johnson takes with this book; it's one that is different than most of what I've read. And I love all of these characters, as well. I can just picture Nerio and Uros in my minds eye, and it really makes me wish they were real! (Sigh!) My only complaint with this book is t ...more
It was a great pleasure reading this book. A great story line and great characters. Caroline is a wonderful lead character, in that she has many aspects to her. Love for her family, and those around her. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes romance, vampires, or just great stories.
A new twist on an old tale. Romance and adventure woven through out the book are just enough to make the reader want more. A good curl up and enjoy book!

First I’d like to thank A.S. Johnson for the opportunity to read this wonderful book; I won this as a first reads through good reads and have thoroughly enjoyed the pleasure. Thank you once again.

Caroline is born into a royal line of vampires from Italy. Destined to rule them as the Vampire Empress, Caroline faces one trial after the other until she takes the vampire throne.

The concept for this story was original. The vampires were the original race, with humans their de-evolved state. Once reborn, the vampires go through a transformation period, learning about being a vampire and honing their abilities. Caroline finds love with Nerio, and finds strength within herself to protect her fam

I received this as a First Reads book from Goodreads.

The story is a new twist on the Vampire tale, including hierarchy, creation, and nutrition. Not at all scary or too sexual. The ideas are interesting and there are lots of interesting characters too. A few of the Vampires have notable relatives, which is always fun.

I do think the book could have been edited a little better. Unfortunately typos bug me as do grammatical errors. Also I found that the sense of time passing in the book was a little
Looks great sounds awesome cant wait to read it!!!

Jul 04, 2015 D.A.—Shelf! Shelf! Shelf! marked it as sampled-disliked
Sample was too awkwardly written for me; storyline seemed typical manhattan 20-something forays into adulthood and romance; in all fairness I stopped reading before it even got to any paranormal plots or characters. Publisher's note at front bragged they were bringing reader the author's words completely unedited -- I think that was a big mistake as simple ssentence structure editing (not to mention weirdly splitup words recurring several times in a paragraph). At $18.45 kindle price, the sample ...more
