Overview

Elizabeth Bathory by Edward Eaton

When Elizabeth Báthory discovers that the blood of maidens will keep her young, she sets off on a bloody killing spree that lasts for years and results in the deaths of hundreds. When she is finally caught, she is walled up in her own castle. There, ever young and beautiful, she is denied the love and adoration she so craves. Then a young priest, looking for fame and advancement, comes to save her. Will her need for his flesh be stronger than his need for her soul? [Drama (PG) 1 act play in 5 scenes | Available in print and ebook from Dragonfly Publishing, Inc.]

The play ELIZABETH BATHORY, by Edward Eaton, unfolds in polished dramatic verse. The scenes are eerie and haunting. The plot, although fictionalized, is based on the life of the real Hungarian countess who killed hundreds in order to bathe in their blood as a way to retain her beauty. Read it for the verse or buy it as a playbooks for performance. Also available in dramatic verse by the same author: HECTOR AND ACHILLES and ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE. ~ Roserock Reviews

Total and complete garbage. The book nook book I received was only 41 pages. It was a play. I learned nothing from it. I'd give zero stars if I could.
