This is an interesting book, in regard as to the historical background of "Count Vlad", who was actually a prince and not a Count. Anyhow, it gives an interesting sight into this character and into medieval europe, in particular in the balkans.
The only thing that I would've liked is the following: I would have liked to know what was the relationship between Vlad the Impaler and vampirism.....however did Bram stoker relate vampirism with Vlad ? The book doen's mention if Vlad had any kind of vampiric activity or tendencies, or if he used to drink blood or if he only went out at night or something of the kind.....So, at the end, I still did not understand what Vlad the implaer had to do with vampirism.....he was cruel and mean and all that, but there have been many cruel and evil men and still there is no relationship to them and vampirism.....Other than that, the book is interesting to read.
