Title: Being Dracula’s Widow
Author: Faith Marlow
Published Date: April 5th 2014
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy / Horror
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Over a decade has passed. Valeria and Emil, aunt and nephew, are living new lives in Brasov. But when a book is published bearing her late husband’s name, Valeria’s darkest secret is exposed and her happy life is left in ruins.
Valeria sets out on a mission to find out who revealed her story to the world but she meets a distraction in Paris she was not prepared for, someone who changes everything. Will Valeria survive her own blood thirst, or will she allow a new opportunity for happiness to slip through her fingers?
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.
