Book Description

January 2011

Virginia has never had it easy. After her life is torn apart, she moves to a small town with the hope of starting over. She settles in and starts learning to enjoy a slower pace of life. Then, one evening she decides to take a walk to check out a mysterious mansion at the end of her block. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but because of it Virginia is about to make a terrifying discovery.

As she peers through the mansion's window, she sees a massive black-robed figure with grotesque fangs. Horrified, Virginia attempts to flee-but finds herself stopped in her tracks and plunged into darkness. After she awakens inside the house, Virginia comes face-to-face with its secrets-Teresa, the beautiful woman at her bedside; Max, the seemingly sinister old man; and Count Basarab Musat, a Transylvanian vampire who manipulates and controls everything-and everyone-around him.

Soon Virginia realizes she is a prisoner, and what the Count has planned for her throws her into a battle for her survival. Unsure whether she will ever be free from this new and dangerous world, Virginia becomes a desperate woman who will stop at nothing to return to the life she once knew.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new take on vampire mythos Sept. 19 2012
This first novel in a trilogy draws you in from the first page. Virginia is a lonely woman who has had rough knocks in life but keeps going. Moving to a small town is the first step, so she thinks, in pulling her life together and making a fresh start. Curiosity leads her to a fascinating old house, and that is where the rest of the story starts. I had a hard time putting this book down, and had it finished within 2 days. The history of the Musat family and its ties to the legendary Dracula provide a new twist to the legend of the vampire's creation. Virginia's struggles to return to her normal life will wring your heart, and you will keep turning the page to see what happens next. Each chapter reveals a little more about the characters, and lures you deeper into their story. I recommend this book, and its sequel "Night's Gift" to those who like a supernatural love story with many layers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellant Story Teller April 14 2013
By Lorraine A - Published on

Mary has created an interesting spin in the Vampire genre, by giving a Canadian flavour to her stories. The cliffhanger ending leaves you anxious to read about Virginia in the next installment.
