This was a truly perfect bookIt had all of my favorite elements of a neo Victorian Gothic the impoverished gentlewoman seeking to make her way in life; the mysterious sensual young count that catches her eye; mysterious deaths; superstitious locals; and a fraught relationship to the past Theodora is an orphan and her grandfather has recently died as well When her schoolfriend Cosima invites her to Transylvania to be a guest at Cosima's wedding to the local count Theodora views it as a handy escape She's a writer and she knows from Cosima's childhood stories that Transylvania will provide fertile ground for her imagination Also she'd rather not live with her sister and brother in law who are expecting their fifth child Upon her arrival at the castle Theodora is thrilled with the magnificent setting and her writing takes off She is troubled that Cosima's wedding has been called off and Theodora is even disturbed when she realizes just how attracted she is to the countIn true Gothic fashion secrets from the past continue to haunt the present Was the current count's father so evil that he rose from the grave as strigoi Why did the count's father and grandfather hate each other so deeply What secrets of love and passion will drive these characters to commit desperate actsRaybourn has a fantastic narrative voice and her ear for dialogue is top notch Unlike so many neo Victorian romances her characters speak naturally with only small differences from our modern speech Clearly Raybourn has read many Victorian novels in order to master the language so thoroughly This book was a joy to read and I would have loved to read it slowly and savor it but I was too engrossed and had to know what happened next

Es at a magnificent decaying castle in the Carpathians The Dead ePUB #8608 replete with eccentric inhabitants the ailing dowager the troubled steward her own fearful friend Cosmina But all are outstripped in dark glamour by the castle's master Count Andrei DragulescuBewildering and bewitching in eual measure the brooding nobleman ignites Theodora's imagination and awakens passions in. Frankly I was kind of disappointed in this It was well written and nicely atmospheric but I never really liked either of the main characters and found the plot unconvincing I found her weirdly modern in outlook and him All my least favorite alpha traits embodied Other than his supposed cutenesshotnessmoneyposition I couldn't see why any woman would find him a catch Controlling Vaguely abusive Selfish Opium addict My reaction YUCKIt was weirdly reminiscent of Jane Eyre to me with lots of victorian dialogue The 'gothicness' of it felt like victorian and modern sensibilities were fighting together I kept being pulled out of the story But she is a good writer and it could have been done much worse by a lesser author That's why I gave it 3 stars I think it would work better for many readers than it did for me I have oddball reactions and often dislike books everyone else seems to love so don't let me talk you out of it I liked the 'Silent' series much better and am looking forward to the new one coming out

Not uite 3 stars but rounding up for the gothic atmosphereThis is an homage to Dracula and Northanger Abbey and I think anyone who enjoyed both of those books would enjoy this one as well It started out as uite an enjoyable read but then it lost me somewhere along the way inside the creepy castle and the vampire mystery that just wouldn't end Also am not a fan of vampires or sweeping Victorian romances However I am a big fan of creepy castles chilling folklore and cold desolate settings So the highs and the lows kind of evened outI really like the Veronica Speedwell series by Deanna Raybourn especially the latest one A Dangerous Collaboration with its gothic tone and gloomy mystery So I was in the mood for a similar book The Dead Travel Fast wasn't uite what I was looking for but it was interesting enough to pass the time
