To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history....Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," and they plunge 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 inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

A unique take on the Dracula legend.
Kostova has quite an original take here on what is over-saturated subject matter. She blends her narrative nicely between reality and fiction with a good amount of 'page turnabilty' so to speak. i felt she missed a few golden opportunities to delve into the fictional Dracula and his purpose though. Overall the voice actors were OK, though the main male lead was a bit drab.
