I typically enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and anything that makes my imagination soar. To my surprise, this book captivated me! I found myself enthralled by the language, the characters, and the plot. The Count is sexy, mysterious, powerful, and all the things women adore. I would dare to guess that men will find him admirable as well, but since I’m not a man, I cannot proclaim this to be true. Also, the way the Count speaks resonates in my mind. I automatically find my vocabulary expanding and my thoughts becoming more “proper.” LOL! I mean, look at the sentence above. I felt completely normal saying, “I cannot proclaim this to be true.” hahaha! Who talks like that in this day and age? I’ll tell you…people who read this book! I highly recommend it!
