Mary Lou C. (Shenandoah Junction, WV) (12/15/13)

Great Historical Novel
The author has a gift for bringing historical events to life with her own special spin. In this tale, she uses characters and events that spawned legends of Count Dracula and dark castles.
Ms. Lafferty masterfully, weaves back and forth between modern day and 17th century eastern Europe.
I loved this book as much as her previous offering, "The Bloodletter's Daughter". I couldn't put it down.
