***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
When Valeria’s hand was given in marriage to the handsome and powerful Count Vlad Dracula, she dreamed of happiness but instead her life was filled with longing for her absent husband, their country ravaged by war. When Vlad at last returned from the battlefield he was a changed man, an alluring and dangerous creature with a thirst for her blood…and for more wives.
For over one hundred years, tales of Count Dracula have haunted and seduced the imagination of readers worldwide. Now experience the story of Dracula from a new perspective, as told by the three women who knew him best. Discover their stories, their secrets, and find out what it would be to love and be loved by history’s most powerful vampire in Being Mrs. Dracula.
In a marriage that spans centuries, one man shared between three women, love may be eternal but happiness is not guaranteed.
***Contains Sex, Violence, Strong Language and Adult Situations.
Not for young readers***
As a lover of the original Dracula the idea behind this book really appealed to me and I wasn’t disappointed. A very classical approach in a genre that seems to be filled with contemporary efforts, Being Mrs. Dracula is written mainly from the perspective of Dracula’s three brides and follows their journey from humanity to depravity.
I challenge anybody who loves the original not to be captivated by this story which appears to be giving readers a viewpoint that I haven’t encountered before.
My main complaint would be that it isn’t consistently in journal form. The occasional chapter, or even part of a chapter suddenly changes to a regular story format temporarily pulling me out of the moment, and once or twice causing me to check to see whose story we were developing. That is the only reason for the 4 rather than 5 star rating.
Classic vampire fans should add this to their “Must Read” lists immediately!
