READER ☆ Count and Countess ´ Rose Christo

Zabeth Bathory A 16th century Hungarian princess Europe's first feminist The aristocrat who liberated women by day and bathed in their blood by night An invalid trapped in the prison of her own bodyThe I stumbled upon this book while browsing the brilliant tvtropes and would recommend it to those who enjoy very dark humour well observed character studies of psychoticdamaged individuals and deconstruction of common tropes in fiction especially the 'girls love bad boys''sexy bloodthirsty vampire' tropeIt is to the author's credit that I cannot think of a similar work to compare it to Possibly We Have Always Lived in the Castle? Twilight it certainly ain't What do you mean why doesn't my skin sparkle?While I have given this book four stars I must stress that this is in the context of it being a presumably self published work that costs less than a latte definitely worth downloading if the above description intrigues you and the author is clearly a talented lady The prose is polished and flows well Yet it suffers in my uneducated opinion from a lack of relatablesympathetic characters something that might have been addressed by a professional editorHaving said that this lack of sympathetic characters could be completely intentional a la American Psycho

EPUB Count and Countess

Count and CountessSe are the letters they wrote to one another from childhood to adulthood across the impossible threshold of time; the secret bond they forged in cruelty and ink of friendship of madness of sincerest lo A well written book with an intriguing premise It's easy to see how Elizabeth and Vlad grow from children to powerful rulers and ruthless murderers I found myself empathizing with them both so much so that the end was severely depressing I strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys slightly paranormal historical fiction
