Review - Cain: The Quest by Elizabeth Loraine

Cain The Quest: A Royal Blood Chronicle (Volume 4)
ISBN #: 9780615430010
Page Count: 300

Book Summary:
(Taken from back cover)

Book four of the Royal Blood Chronicles spins its story around its namesake.  The Protectors are still involved as the adventure might expect, but this is a clever new ride.  Cain takes you from the exciting underworld through to the world of light on a heart-pounding journey to save Katrina from - herself?  Hmmm, not quite a spoiler but definitely a teaser for those following the Chronicles.

Mandy's Review:


The picture of the sword doesn't make sense on its own, but you realize the importance of it as your read the story.


I thought it was refreshing to start the book with the story being told by someone else's viewpoint ... other than The Five.  Don't worry Chronicle followers, the story does get told from Katrina's viewpoint in this book, but not as much as the previous books, which, to me, is a welcome change.

About half way through the book, the evil witch is dead (okay, now I'm hearing the munchkins from the Wizard of Oz singing in my head) ... back to this book ... so, the witch is dead and I thought that would be the end of the action.  Nope!  Elizabeth is very adept at continuing a story and keeping you interested.

Main Characters

Katrina - Meets a prophesied end ... but is that really the end of her???

Cain - Damien and Luena's half-brother.  So, is he evil like Luena or is he good like Damien?

Damien - Back in the story full force now that he's escaped from the underworld.


A wonderful and dramatic continuation of the Royal Blood Chronicles.  Elizabeth Loraine has shown her skill time and time again at knowing how to end a book and still make you want more.  What I love about this series is that the author begins the next book in the series right where the last book left off.  I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a continuing vampire series that includes all other mythical creatures.
