***Melanie #Nerd Girl Vamp’s Review***
Being Dracula’s Widow is the sequel to Being Mrs. Dracula and continues about 10 years after where we left the characters at the end of book one, those that survived anyhow.

Unlike book one most of this is not written in journal form and predominantly sticks with one character’s journey which I appreciated. Characters that you think you know from the original Dracula story are given new voices and there are some very clever twists sometimes reinterpreting the well known tale and sometimes inventing a new path that could have been followed.

The mix makes for a well written tale that again will appeal to traditional vampire novel lovers. This, in my opinion, would definitely need to be read as part of the series but as book 1 is a marvelous read as well that should not be considered a hardship.
