Format: Paperback
Yarbro does an excellent job describing an element of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' that (to my knowledge) heretofore lacks explanation: the three vampire wives or brides residing in Dracula's castle. 'The Angry Angel' depicts Dracula's acquisition of his blond vampire bride, Kelene. Kelene's journey as she follows Dracula's "calling" is riveting, as she and her family are spared few tragedies.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in vampire fiction and lore, particularly those who appreciate a rather graphic tale (in terms of violence, not sex). This subject was one of the missing links in vampire fiction, and Yarbro has done a fantastic job filling this niche. Her characters are convincing and well-developed, and this book is tightly compelling right up to the very last sentence. After reading this, I am anxious to read Yarbro's books about the other two wives of Dracula.

I felt unfaithful to Anne Rice, however. this book and author is unique to her mostly because of the setting. I'm in awe of different cultures and time periods. She provides both deliciously with her use of such detail. It is difficult to find an author that provides both with a book that you can't put down. The details were so exact that you actually saw Kelene, her family, and of course Dracula and his numerous haunts. If you enjoy an exhilarating novel, then tap into this trilogy. The only complaint I have is that I wish the print was larger mainly because when I'm reading for hours, my eyes tire. This frustrates me because I don't want to go to bed....I want to keep reading. As soon as I finished it, I ordered her next. Read this one, you won't put it down.

Format: Paperback
The Angry Angel is a mesmerizing tale of a young girl's seduction by the original vampire, Count Dracula. It's also a metaphor for a woman's surrender to male sexuality. Even if Chelsea Quinn Yarbro only intended to write a vampire story, the raw sexual symbolism shines through. The highlight of the book is the slave auction, where Dracula claims his "bride." I've read that passage over and over, I just can't get enough of it. I think it resonates with me because while it's degrading and de-humanizing, Kelene ultimately is claimed by her suitor and is allowed to become something she never dreamed of before. It's a metaphor for the kind of self-discovery we sometimes find in sex.
