Review by: Tiffany L. Duhart on Feb. 29, 2012 : (no rating)
Bringing it back to the old Stoker way of vampirism. How can you not love it? An immensely refreshing pause from the mainstream backwash that has become of this genre. Not once was I ever bored reading this book. The desire to know what happened to these characters was like an ache, and I had to buy it. This is Dracula transformed into a woman’s dark fantasy, and it’s written well too. I had no choice but to like it. The cartoonish cover really betrays the quality of this book, I’m sorry to say, but content is king. The hate I felt for Vlad was a beautiful kind of hate, because it spurred emotion. The plot was handled well, the execution was handled well, and I really felt for Glynis, despite thinking her to be a strong headed spoiled brat at the beginning of the story. However, not once did I fully dislike her. She’s a girl of modern ages stuck in subservient times, so audiences of today can relate to her. I did.

I cant seem to stop reading this, i finished it in 1 sitting! I love the characters, Glynis, the heroine is a very strong character while the hero/villain, Dracula first made me cringe with the cliche and I sensed this story would go downhill from there and I was glad I was proved wrong. I find myself in an emotional roller coaster feeling the anger, helplessness and determination of the heroine. I came to love the character Dracula aka Vlad Tepes as well and other characters. I loved the plot and the twist and turns it took me, it kept me interested and hanging on every page, not exactly predictable. I LOVED reading The Tale of the Vampire Bride and would read it again for sure. I applaud Rhiannon Frater for writing this excellent book. I would want to read about Glynis in the future ^_^
