I am not a huge fan of the vampire genre, but I thought Deanna Raybourne's twist on a Dracula-esque story was very enjoyable. It kept my interest, and in fact I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! There was a little romance in this book, but it wasn't written cheaply or without feeling. I love trying to figure out her puzzles. The characters were fun and made the story more interesting. Very enjoyable and spooky.

A typical Harlequin romance. No plot to speak of. Characters were one dimensional and the ending was telegraphed by the second chapter. Have read the Lady Julia Grey books and enjoyed them for their sizzle, fast pace, and good characterizations. This book falls flat in all areas.

You're not going to get that time back, either. It should have been a fun spin on the Dracula story with a young woman travelling to Transylvania and coming into contact with vampire legends - and maybe reality? I read the book because I have enjoyed Deanna Raybourn's other books, but this just didn't work for me. It seemed like Raybourn was slumming it a little; I bet it was fun to write, and easy, but probably because it ended up being pretty paint-by-numbers. I actually didn't remember what this book was about until I saw the cover again a couple weeks later. Not a good sign. Her "Lady Julia Grey" series, which starts with "Silent in the Grave" is even more escapist-y fun, but smarter.

I, like many others that have read this book, are big fans of the Lady Julia Grey series. Of course, we will all compare it to the series and I did at first. I was a little disappointed because I felt it didn't quite stand up to the excellence we had come to expect from Lady Grey. After I stopped comparing and let myself be swept away in the story, I found it rather enjoyable. It's a dark gothic tale in a very interesting setting. This sort of reminded me of Julia Grey meets Jane Eyre. The dark castle, the master who can't be understood or tamed, the girl not sure if she will have her happy ending all mixed with murder & mystery. It was an easy read with a surprising ending. As long as you don't go into it expecting to find the same quality as the Grey series, I think you will find it enjoyable.

Not up to the author's usual standards....I love her Lady Julia series, but I started just skimming this one to finish it.

Since I love and have read her Lady Grey novels, I deided to purchase this Deanna Raybourn book. I have not quite finished, but am intrigued by it. I would highly recommend it.

I just finished it.....always sad to come to the end of one of her stories. This was as eloquently written as everything else she has published, and i am excited to read the next one she publishes!
