    I don t know what I expected when picking up a book that so heavily features Elizabeth Bathory, but this was gorier than I was prepared for The other aspect is the toxic friendship with sexual tension between Maria and Danica, which I always find simultaneously engrossing and unpleasant.

    I don t know what everyone was talking about with this book being slow I was hooked the whole time I wanted to keep reading and keep reading I like how it flip flopped in time a little and I like how it included the diary entries of Bathory I was just plain impressed.It ended well and I am going to go looking to see if there will be a sequel The story leaves it up in the air as if there could be a sequel.

    I did not like this book at all It s well written, but it just disgusts me I am so sick of reading fiction about Elizabeth Bathory and the consistent glamorization of what this monster did There were no redeeming qualities It wasn t erotic It wasn t sexy She was a sadistic serial killer with a serious disorder And yet, author after author glamorizes her People may not think that s what Holly Luhning is doing and she probably doesn t believe it herself, but I had to stop reading I m stil I did not like this book at all It s well written, bu
