The Historian

by: Elizabeth Kostova
Attention Vampire Lovers:
This book I really liked. It is different than any other book I have read, but very good. It is about the search for Dracula. It mixed fiction with reality, history with modern day. The mystery of Dracula is unfolded in letters and postcards, told by a young woman who stumbles upon a strange book in her father's library. This book and the letters with it send her on a journey to uncover the origin of the book, and ultimately leads her to uncover the mystery of the legend of Dracula.


Breathtakingly suspenseful and beautifully written, The Historian is the story of a young woman plunged into a labyrinth where the secrets of her family's past connect to an inconceivable evil: the dark fifteenth-century reign of Vlad the Impaler and a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive through the ages. The search for the truth becomes an adventure of monumental proportions, taking us from monasteries and dusty libraries to the capitals of Eastern Europe - in a feat of storytelling so rich, so hypnotic, so exciting that it has enthralled readers around the world.
