The Historian. If you want a GOOD vampire book, this is it. It's all about history, and really, the only vampire mentioned is Vlad the Impaler. I love history, especially creepy, horrifying history like the true story of Vlad.

This is the best vampire book I have ever read - seriously - hands down - written like a Dan Brown book - fictional murder - then going through history of Vlad the impailer - you cannot put it down!

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. A completely engrossing, eerie story that tumbles through timelines, telling the stories of a professor, his mentor, and the infamous Vlad the Impaler. (Paired with Relic Ritual Red 2009)

Late one night, exploring her father’s library, a young woman finds an ancient book & a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to ‘My dear & unfortunate successor’. Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of – a labyrinth where the secrets of her father’s past & her mother’s mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history.
