Elizabeth Kostova: The Historian

A compelling and spooky story about the quest for Dracula! Sometimes a bit too fantacist, but overall a fantastic read. It is not always entirely clear, what is fact and what is fiction, which makes the book just the more interesting, but which also means that I will have to dig out more information on Vlad Tepes, the historical "Drakulya"....

In her father's library a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor". Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of - a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history.
