The Pierced Heart Charles Maddox #4The remote castle of the enigmatic Baron Von Reisenberg a pioneering scientist with a terrible secret Meanwhile London is in the throes of a series of brutal murders executed by a mysterious killer known only as The Vampire What is the connection between the Baron and the murders? And what does the journal of a young theater assistant named Lucy have to do with it all? Madd This is the third novel by Lynn Shepherd featuring Charles Maddox I've read and enjoyed them all and have some of the same feelings about this book as I did about the second one 'A Fatal Likeness' Which is the telling could benefit from some additional backstory refreshing or at the very least I couldWhile I can remember parts of each previous story I don't necessarily remember all of the details I think the reading experience would be a little richer if there was a little fleshing out of the past trials and tribulations of our endearing protagonist I know that I really enjoyed his company in the past but in this go round I felt like I didn't really get to know him very wellThis is a relatively short book weighing in at 228 pages I expected it to be a uick read but found the pacing was a little drawn out There were times when I wasn't uite sure what the author was thinking tying her story so closely to Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' But having recently listened to the audio version of the original loved it I did enjoy connecting the characters and the imagery in my mindFortunately readers are rewarded with a great ending I loved the way the author tied up this story it was satisfying and well done and very cleverly has me wanting to read the next book in the series without leaving me with the feeling that I'm hanging at the edge of a cliffThank you to the Vine Program and Delacorte Press for providing me with an advance uncorrected proof in exchange for an honest review
