As I've written in my review of "The Vampire Omnibus", I like to think of this as what Twilight would have been had it been better written.

Romantic, atmospheric, and very gothic. A good vampire read for those stormy nights.
Isa Cantos (Crónicas de una Merodeadora)
Los Montes Cárpatos, príncipes de los Balcanes, vampiros, dos hermanos peleando por el amor de una mujer... todos los elementos de este relato me fascinaron. A pesar de que las descripciones son densas por pedazos, la atmósfera vampírica (sí, no sé cómo describirla de otra manera) que se va creando alrededor de la historia hace que te transportes al castillo en donde están Jadwige, Gregoriska y Kostaki y todo el tiempo estés esperando a la ansiada aparición del no-muerto.

Oh, me ha encantado. Nada mejor como una historia gotica de aventuras, misterio, escenarios lugubres y el clasico vampiro del flolclore del este de Europa para un dia lluvioso y con tormenta como el de hoy.

Cada vez que leo esta historia me sigue gustando como la primera vez que lo leí.

La dama pálida se trata de una historia gótica, de apenas unas cuantas páginas, siendo el segundo libro que leo de este autor. Resultó tratarse de una lectura agradable, pero no me llegó a impresionar. Es cierto que en algunos momentos me produjo desasosiego gracias a la trama, y su narración, pero no es una de esas historias que recordaría por mucho tiempo.

"Siguen a los elevados picos, a los bosques vírgenes, a las montañas gigantes, a las selvas sin límites, llanuras sin fin, verdadero mar co

Set in 19th century Carpathian mountains, a place of Gothic castles, monasteries and gorgeous costumes, this is beautifully written and highly enjoyable vampire tale about Polish heroine loved by two local brothers, good and evil. Highly recommended!

Well-written and wonderfully atmospheric, with Gothic sets and gorgeous costumes, this story should be much better known.
