My Rating:

My Review: I’ve enjoyed this trilogy tremendously! The characters are so excellently written that they are very believable in their actions. The vampires are cold,and aloof which is what I enjoy. It makes them more threatening no matter what they are doing. No lasting humanity left in these vampires.
The story continues with Adam, and Arkady still trying to find Dracula’s Medallion, and figure out why the vampires want it so bad. Things get even more urgent when Clara is abducted by Elizabeth’s lover. Adam is now racing the clock to find the medallion, and save Clara. It seems something is always ahead of him though leaving a trail of blood, and death throughout Romania.
We come to know Elizabeth through Clara’s dreams, and I believe that of Dracula’s three wives Elizabeth is the most evil and psychotic. I highly recommend this trilogy to those who enjoy a dark thrilling vampire story.
