Publisher's Summary

All Lady Glynis Wright ever wanted was the freedom to live her life as she pleased. Unfortunately, her aristocratic parents want her to marry well and settle into a life of luxury. When her family becomes guests to one of the most fearsome and powerful vampires of all time, Glynis finds her fate is far more terrible than an arranged marriage. Trapped in the power of her new master, she fights for freedom, revenge against her creator, and the chance to be with the one she truly loves.

Bloody, horrific, romantic and rich in gothic atmosphere, The Tale of the Vampire Bride is sure to thrill fans of the terrible, yet romantic vampires of literary past.

Too long.

I like the premise of the story. It was almost as if Bram Stoker had written from one of Dracula's brides side. It would have been a much better story if had been cut so much shorter. I think could have still shown the dilemma & pain that Glynis went through without being so drawn out. It started great, then dragged so much in the middle I almost gave up, but ended well. I will not be continuing on with the series for fear that they too are to drawn out. I love the 'Pretty when she dies' series from Rhiannon Frater, think will stick with that for now.

A Most Gripping, Vampire Tale!

You really won't be disappointed with this audiobook. This audiobook is most interesting. I especially enjoyed this vampire tale because It was like listening to a vampire tv soap story as it focused on and was built on the concept of a vampire family life. The tale was an awesome and intense display of the vampire world. The narrator was quite good. I loved this story and finished it in just two days time. I so, look forward to the rest of this series on audiobook. Rhiannon Frater is an author whose books I intend to continue listening to.

This is no PNR

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tale of the Vampire Bride, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

I would consider it a good companion. The book jarred me, hearing the story brought to life gave me cold chills.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't have a favorite character. I did however, like the overall description and personalities of each character. They all worked well together.

What about Carol Hendrickson’s performance did you like?

The narration made the story so much more chilling. I liked Carol Hendrickson's take on the personalities.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When she lost her family at the beginning.

Any additional comments?

This is definitely not a love story or a PNR, if you like a really dark and dangerous story then this is for you.

The unwilling bride

This audio book had me blown away. While listening to the narration I was able to envision the story as it plays out. Well written with strong characters and excellent storyline.
The story has a fast flow that you are able to follow along as the main character ( Lady Glynnis ) goes from being an outspoken young woman to a vampire. You are able to understand what is going on as she tell you her story. If you love vampire stories this is a perfect book. Fair warning this is not a love story by any means.

Vampire Bride

Rhiannon Frater is a one of kind story teller. I loved the backstory of the heroine. I found myself feeling a wide range of emotions listening to this book from sorrow and hate to mirth and pity. And the way she describes the surroundings I could picture it so vividly in my mind. The narrator's voice portrays Glennis emotions and feelings so perfectly and has a smooth clear voice. If your looking for a vampire love story with a twist look no further.

Romantic and terrible in the most wonderful way!

In true gothic vampire style, I was swept away in a tale full of blood, lust, and determination! Narrator brought characters to life with rich accents and perfect inflections. Definitely a must read!!!

Not bad

A litte slow in the middle but better at the later stage of the story.
