Dracula has always been sexy and suave in all the books and movies, but Rourke's Dracula is HAWT! Vlad has old school charm, a bit if awkwardness, and is simply swoon worthy. He fills out a three piece suit like a GQ cover model. (Rarrr)
Rourke weaves in Vlad's backstory seamlessly; and its not the overdone version either. Her version while steeped in history has her own twist.
The wit and snark of Vincenza is ever present in Vlad. She is one of my favorite characters.
Vlad is quite the page turner. I read it in one day! Secrets are revealed to Vincenza. Life altering decisions are made. There's romance! (Did I tell you how HAWT Vlad is?) And the ending!!!!! Hold on to your seats cause hell hath no fury like a scorned woman. ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!
