Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians.

I loved this book! It was as grotesque as I expected it to be, yet oddly humorous at times. How he can be a hero to some is beyond me. Yep, I'd recommend this story.

It was alright. I liked how it more or less followed the timeline as far as history, but the writing wasn't great. It's in script format, which I don't mind. The problem I had were word choices and overall speech patterns. Like, would Vlad the Impaler actually say "right-o"? Another thing was general mannerisms of characters. It's almost like this twisted comedy. I'm not sure if it was meant to be that way, but either way, not something I enjoy too much. The good thing is, it was very short.

Well..

I'm an Order Of the Dragon enthusiast... This has absolutely shut my eyes to my love for the notorious impaler. Ugh. Terrifying. I've read some scary stuff but wow, this was almost like an authentic "interview with the vampire" great horror\ history read.
