Down & Dirty

With typical R.J. Blain style, this book is laugh out loud funny and highly inventive.

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Why would anyone put a mermaid and a gorgon in the same room together? While Tulip enjoys being alive, her lineage brings her nothing but trouble.

Snakes eat fish, and the mer love tearing apart their serpentine nemeses with their hands and teeth. As for the gorgons… she’d rather not think about them at all.

The last thing Tulip wants is to rule the mer kingdom. First, she can barely swim. Second, she’s packing more than her fair share of her father’s genes. Third, what is a landlocked princess supposed to do with an aquatic kingdom?

If she gets her way, nothing. Add in her dirty little serial killing secret, and she’s an international disaster waiting to happen.

There’s just one small problem: her father’s bodyguard tempts her in ways no one should, and if she isn’t careful, he’ll uncover her secrets, domesticate her, and infect her with a severe case of normality.

Thoughts on Serial Killer Princess

R.J. Blain is so much fun to read. Hilarious antics, witty conversations and characters that won’t stay down. This entire series is ripe with entertainment, no matter which part of the world they find themselves in. This one cracked me up, then again, that IS why I read R.J. Blain.

Paranormal with a side of humor, perfect.

Favorite Lines

What ever happened to the artistry of a good premeditated murder? (2%)
My mother really needed to stop conquering islands before I participated in regicide to go along with serial killing serial killers. (26%)

  • Hilarious writing.
  • Characters are engrossing.
  • I like the idea of Tulip.


  • Series is getting repetitive, every character is funny and sarcastic. Which is good, but EVERY one in EVERY book? Where are the boring assholes?
  • Fade to black… there was no consummation in this book, but I know if/when it happens, no details will be given. Alas. Mind you, this is just what I know from the books of Blain’s I’ve read… maybe it is just this collection? If you know different, leave a comment!


First Person, Single POV

Ending Type

Episodic (Unlike most in this collection, there will be a book 2 here)


PG-13, though a warning for violence.

Romantic Dynamic


Character Age Range


My Final Verdict on Serial Killer Princess

A landlocked princess with a penchant for murder… what’s not to love? Hilarious, original and down right engrossing, this is another win for this Author’s impressive catalogue. Recommend for the laughs.
