The Historian  A very good book and the perfect read for October! It is great to see a vampire book that does not involve a love triangle!

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)

An amazing read I couldn't put down. Historical, romantic, travelogue, food, academic, mystery, vampires....what more could you ask for?

The Historian. I stay away from over-long books and should have with this one. Vampires, Dracula -- not my thing, historical research & Oxford libraries were the draw. People kept disappearing which helped initially but was overdone by end. Places visited provided a bit of armchair traveler but characters needed work. Not the worst book I've read but not in the top 1000.

The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova

America’s 92-year-old Street Priest: "He and his brother Philip Berrigan, a Josephite priest and World War II combat veteran, along with the Trappist monk Thomas Merton, led some of the first protests against the Vietnam War. In 1967 Philip Berrigan was arrested for nonviolent civil disobedience and was sentenced to six years in prison. Philip’s sentence spurred Daniel to greater activism. He traveled to Hanoi with the historian Howard Zinn to bring back three American prisoners of war."
