I am excited to announce a great historical fiction novel giveaway! (One of my current favorite genres!) Thank to Valerie at Hachette Book Group I can have up to 5 of these wonderful books to give away here! So I will offer one book giveaway for every 10 comments here between now and October 18. That means if we can get 50+ comments here – we will give away all 5 books! (I cant wait to get my review copy of this book!)
Breathtakingly suspenseful and beautifully written, The Historian is the story of a young woman plunged into a labyrinth where the secrets of her family’s past connect to an inconceivable evil: the dark fifteenth-century reign of Vlad the Impaler and a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive through the ages. The search for the truth becomes an adventure of monumental proportions, taking us from monasteries and dusty libraries to the capitals of Eastern Europe – in a feat of storytelling so rich, so hypnotic, so exciting that it has enthralled readers around the world.
“Never was a ghost story so casually erudite, nor a historical travelogue such gripping entertainment.” —New York Magazine
“Impossible to resist. . . . Kostova blends fact and fantasy to remind us that the original Dracula legend is rooted in monstrous acts of unblinking evil.” —Miami Herald
“A richly told story about family and the dark side of human nature. . . . This cry of the heart will appeal to readers beyond those who are drawn by a fascination with the legend of Dracula.” —Chicago Tribune
“Genuinely terrifying.” —Boston Globe
