Overview

In THE TALE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE, Lady Glynis suffered great horrors at the hands of her evil vampire master, Count Vlad Dracula, and vowed she would one day escape him.

In THE VENGEANCE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE, Glynis learns to embrace the title of Countess Dracula as she sets into motion her plans to seek revenge on those who betrayed Glynis and her family to Dracula and to reunite with the man she loves.

Despite her ambitions, it soon becomes quite apparent that her life continues to be overshadowed by the ominous presence of Vlad Dracula.

Set in the 1820s against the lush gothic backdrop of Buda, Hungary, the tale of one vampire bride's quest for love, revenge, and the right to determine her own way in life is a sweeping saga that will enthrall any reader who loves the beautiful, deadly vampires of old.

    I am waiting for the 3rd book to this series. I really hope she writes one because I am absolutely obsessed with Glynis and Vlad! Please write the next book! If anyone is looking for an adult vampire book that is well written, fast paced and absolutely riveting, purchase these books!

    Great story!

    Glynis kicks butt! Love her. I enjoyed reading this book and thought it was a great followup from the 1st book. You get to see Glynis become her own woman and grow to become a powerful vampire. *possible spoiler -I do hope there is more to the story cause I doubt Vlad would give up. He is just evil and i feel he would seek his revenge.

    After the intense ride of The Tale Of The Vampire Bride, it was a
    welcome relief to relax (a little) as Lady Glynis embraces her role as
    Countess Dracula and begins to unfurl her plans to exact revenge on all
    those that made her life, um, HELL in the first book. And even though
    this second book in the Vampire Bride series is a tad bit lighter, I
    could not walk away from this one for longer than maybe a pee-break or
    two. I was seriously camped out on the couch with snacks and drink
    surrounding me for the duration. Where the first book focused on
    Glynis, Vlad and the brides, Vengeance takes off and adds some really
    fantastic characters. I’m actually amazed that Ms. Frater could add so
    many characters to a story and not one of them got lost in the story nor
    made the story feel overwhelmed and without plot. Each and every
    character had a role in the story. Some I wanted to see more than
    others (Ahem, Ignatius!) Some less than others (oh, Katya, what are we
    going to do with you?) And some just left me wondering what they’re
    going to do next and why are they there (Percy?). My favorites? It
    would have to be Adem and Magda, with Laura coming up a close third.
    Next, I absolutely love where Frater has taken her Vampire Bride world
    in this sequel. Instead of having to spend her time introducing her
    world to the reader, Ms. Frater takes the opportunity to use all her
    characters to build up a new “supernatural” world for Glynis to
    assimilate into. While we learn about this new world with Glynis,
    Glynis struggles with her identity and figuring out who she can trust.
    If that wasn’t enough, she still has to enact her plans for revenge and
    get her love, Ignatius, back into her life. And because Glynis knows
    very little about vampire law or protocol, she’s going to make mistakes
    along the way, which only ups the excitement. Add in the cranky fallen
    angel Astir and the brother/sister House of Gavril and Frater works her
    writing magic up to the astonishing ending that had me gasping
    (seriously, I was gasping!) for more! Notice I’ve said nothing about
    the plot? No spoilers here, sorry! You’re probably wondering why I
    only gave Vengeance a 4.5 instead of 5. Well, there was a bit of a lull
    (for me anyways) about a quarter of the way in that lasted for maybe a
    chapter that, frankly, surprised me that it was even there. Frater is
    such a succinct, well worded, fluent writer that I didn’t expect to have
    a point in the story where I actually thought, “Hey, Glynis! Get off
    your butt, stop over thinking and do something!!”. Yes, I do talk to
    characters regularly. But only if the book wraps me up and takes me
    away to the world inside. Obviously, Ms. Frater was able to transport
    me back to Buda in 1820. Rhiannon Frater is that talented of an author
    and I suggest you read anything of hers you can get your hands on,
    including the Vampire Bride series. As for the next book in the
    Vampire Bride series, you’re going to have to wait until 2013 for The
    Lament of the Vampire Bride (Vampire Bride #3).

    Yes!!! A must read if you loved the first one

    I was so excited when i saw a second book to the first vampire bride story. It was just as wonderful and epic as the first, though a bit slow at times, which was ok with me as the awesomeness of the book outweighed the lags. Am deffinately looking forward to the next book in the Vampire Bride series! Hope it comes out soon!
