Lycan's Blood Queen is the first in the adult paranormal romance duology called the Randolph Duology, by Catherine Edward. I was very intrigued by the summary of this book, and I love books that feature more than one kind of creature because I really enjoy reading about different authors takes on paranormal creatures. The Randolph Duology features Lycans, Vampires and Witches. A classic mix, but we get to see a twist

Mia (the MFC) has pretty much lived a quiet life. Yes she moved about a bit but shes just found a place she feels comfortable in. Finishing up at University. Her life is going well but things arent always what they seem. Neither is Mia. Shes known about the Supernatural world for a while just not how she fits into it. Through the course of this book she finds that out & god grief its a hell of a ride doing it. Loved Mia, Aaron and the rest of the characters. This book was absolutely brilliant ...more

Lycan’s Blood Queen is a fast paced fun read. This PNR has it all: action, romance, mystery, drama!

I enjoyed following main character, Mia, as she slowly uncovers her true nature. She is both strong and compassionate, two qualities that need to go together more often in female leads (it seems they are most often one or the other).

The romance had a slow build up through the first half, then blossomed through the second. It was nice seeing the couple being what the other needed.

Opening chapters made me a little dizzy or even confused. Including both the hero and heroine's POVs seem unnecessary to me and even repetitive.

Introducing new characters with names and giving them some page-time seems unnecessary. I think it could use some editing to tighten the story.

The attraction between the leads felt rushed or glossed over, I don't feel emotionally invested in them. The true nature of the heroine should have had a good reveal scene instead of the constant delaying of LATER

Vampires are the most viscous and hated of the supernatural races. Lycans, especially, are their mortal enemies; so when an unknown vampire is found in the Lycan king’s territory she is brought to him. Then everything goes off the rails. Mia doesn’t know she’s a vampire and Aaron’s beast wants Mia, his sworn enemy, for his mate. Not to mention the war with the vampire king and the troubles in the pack. I really enjoyed the story and the characters but there is serious need for some proofreading. ...more

When the author first asked if I would review this book, I read the synopsis and thought "Sounds like a great guilty pleasure." And it is.

When it comes to the "guilty" parts, there are a couple flaws in the plot that require some willing suspension of disbelief to get past. The protagonist tends to be "too much of a protagonist" meaning she has so many different special abilities and dramatic background that she even breaks the verisimilitude of a supernatural world. There's also the stereotypi

Lycan’s Blood Is Queen by Catherine Edward is a well written paranormal romance between Aaron and Mia. Reading this book reminds me of Underword by Greg Cox. This book has action, suspense, romance, betrayal, and mystery. I loved reading this book and looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

*REVIEW* 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Lycan's Blood Queen is a bit different from what I normally read. I'm not a huge fan of vampires, but I decided to try this one anyway because it's not just all vampires. Mia is a magical being who may or may not be aware of what she is. No spoilers. She meets a guy, of course, and it's kind of a star crossed love thing. There are many

Werewolves. Vampires. Star-crossed Love. A centuries long war at the center of it all. Catherine Edward’s novel has all of the necessary ingredients for a captivating romantic fantasy. Readers follow Mia, the scared and blindsided vampire, as she navigates her terrifying new abilities, crisis of identity, and the love she finds along the way for the one man she should hate the most: Aaron, the Alpha Werewolf. Through twists and turns, and passionate developments, Edward’s novel promises an enthr ...more

I ended up giving this book 3 out of 5 stars because while the plot was engaging and the characters unique, this seemed more like a sequel than the first book in a collection. I needed more establishing details for the settings and the author’s world in general — and what was given to me made it seem like there was already a book (or two) with those details, and now the author was getting into the main overarching plot. I did enjoy how the author put a new spin on the age-old tropes “forbidden l ...more

Slow burn! Catherine totally nailed this bad boy 100% on point. Sparks fly as suspense and danger ensues in epic proportions. The drama, non-stop action, heart pounding, hard hitting wonder that spin all the pieces together brilliantly. One mind-blowing storyline and impressive plot bring this bad boy blazing to life beautifully. A vortex of churning mishaps and surprising events keep you flipping page after page. One rollercoaster with all the trials and tribulations tha

This is my first book by Catherine Edward and boy was this an amazing story. It is incredibly unique that is so gripping. It has get down and get dirty action in it. The story is full of drama, suspense, mystery, action, and romance. It grab you, pull you in and not let go until you reach the end. It is superb in its telling. Yes, it ends in a cliffhanger but boy is it good and so very worth reading. I can’t wait for the next one to come out.

First, can we talk about this amazing cover?? Catherine always gets amazing covers, she's a pro.

I'll gladly snatch up any book written by Catherine, not only because it'll look great on my shelf, but because her stories are written with lots of love. I always know I'm up for a good time, and with "Lycan's Blood Queen" i was definitely not let down. Strap yourself in for an emotional ride.

Just who is Mia? Maybe the better question is, just what is Mia? This first in a series will have you guessing. As soon as think you have one thing figured out, another possibility springs forward. Catherine Edward has woven together a supernatural mystery that will keep yo

This a very good book with lots of questions about who and what the heroine, Mia, really is and tons of action. We start out believing Mia is human but that soon changes when the wolf pack scents her as a vampire in their territory. Aaron is the pack alpha and soon realizes that she is possibly his mate. The chemistry between the H and h is well written with a lot of important secondary characters like Aaron's family and pack members, Mia's father and assorted witches/warlocks.

Aaron George Randolph, ruling King of the Lycans, and Mia are both strong characters and likable to the reader. The first hurdle for them is that Aaron’s mother was killed by vampires and then he meets and is attracted to Mia. Lycans and vampires are normally enemies, so their slow burn romance is automatically headed for conflict if Aaron has to convince his pack that she is a proper mate for him – and if she is truly a vampire and not something else? The mystery of that situation keeps the sto ...more

Very entertaining read with some unique ideas. Loved the connection between wolf shifter Aaron and mysterious Mia. Passionate and sweet, and tons of heat between them! Loved Aaron! He’s absolutely wonderful and deserves only the best things. Didn’t like that Mia was so weak emotionally and didn’t have enough control over certain things, but really enjoyed the mystery surrounding what she exactly is. Some super powerful stuff going on! The writing flowed a bit weird at times; the story is a bit s ...more

What an unexpected surprise of a book. Yes, there are lycans and vampires, even witches and Fae; but this storyline gives it a little more. There are a lot of plot twists in this book and I kept expecting it to be over, but it kept going from one exciting bit of action to the next (I'm sure there characters didn't feel that way). I enjoyed the world-building and character development I really look forward to the next book.

Turned into a book that was lacking.

Despite the interesting twists and turns that were not anticipated I did not warm up to the book. At first I liked it because there was mystery, innocence, and power surrounding Mia. However the grotesque transformations and vacant mind led me to not like the whole book or situation the author put the characters in. Just wasn't appealing and the author didn't keep the connection to me as a reader.
