The Vampire Princess was like a mash-up of ‘Clue’ meets ‘The Titanic’ in many ways, and while ‘The Titanic’ may go down in my personal history as the most over-rated movie of ALL TIME I am quite a fan of ‘Clue’…. and also of vampires.

So what gives?

This is a multi-layered story about a voyage on a refurbished ocean-liner where none of the characters are quite what they seem. Probably my biggest issue is all the prospective jumping, I understand that it was designed to move the story forw

Vampires aboard the Titanic! Some parts of this story were really good, while others dragged on and on, losing me in the process. It wasn't my best choice of books to buy. However, I normally give books a second chance and I'm re-reading many of them in the future to decide their fate every month as it is. Many of these books will stay, but some will leave my collection.

This is the third book in Romkey's series that started with I, Vampire and continued with The Vampire Papers. It continues the story of Nicoletta Vittorini di Medusa, an ancient vampire princess. Half the novel is her diary, in which she tells of the fall of her kingdom to Muslim invaders during the time of the Crusades and her conversion to becoming a vampire. Along the way, she suffers all kinds of indignities at the hands of men, explaining her hatred for them.

As always, Romkey interweaves h

Michael Romkey's older series of non-related vampire books are simply outstanding. Imo, the hold up beautifully against any of the books since the genre has exploded in the last 5-10 years. Each has been a pleasure to read, and I highly recommend them.

I kept thinking while reading this book (orig. published in 1996) "this is like Titanic meets Dracula". But there is so much more to this book!

The featured vampire in this book is Princess Nicoletta Vittorini di Medusa. S

This story chronicles the new, ultra-luxurious, ultra-expensive Atlantic Princess on its maiden voyage. The Principessa Nicolleta Vittorini di Medusa is on board with her companion and fellow vampire David Parker. Parker refuses to believe that killing is necessary when drinking from humans, and Principessa tries to show him otherwise. She tells him that if he does not begin to kill, she will unleash terror on board the Atlantic Princess. The story flows back and forth between modern day and Pri ...more
