In the great city of Buda, Hungary, I have sought to establish myself as a member of the new vampire court, and create a family with my love, Ignatius, and my fledgling vampire daughter, Laura. Yet, I am constantly menaced by unknown forces, and the threat of my blood union to Vlad Dracula looms over me.

Though I am no longer his prisoner, Vlad Dracula’s voice echoes in the

I had to put the book aside to concentrate on multiple books that were under contract. When I did get the free time to write, I directed my focus on books that weren't causing me to have anxiety attacks.

As Jessica pointed out previously, I was very much struggling with the fact some of my readers wanted Glynis with Vlad. I'm a survivor, so the idea of my beloved character choosing to stay with her abuser is beyond repellent. Though I fully understand Vlad is a dynamic, charismatic character (I love to write him because he's so evil), I do struggle with people wanting Glynis to be with him. He murdered her family, killed and turned her, beat and raped her, and threatened to kill her brother. Just because he changes tactics in manipulating her doesn't mean he's reformed. Just clever.

I was very ill this last year and didn't write very much. When I was safely on the road to recovery, I vowed to finish The Lament of the Vampire Bride and stay true to my original vision.

So that's what I'm doing now. You can follow my progress on my blog at rhiannonfrater.com.

And thank you for reading the series!(less)
Rhiannon Frater On my hard drive at the moment. I'm not done writing it yet. It should be out in early 2016.

Of all the three books, this one was the weakest.
I was always waiting for Vlad to appear, but he does only almost at the end of the book.
Ok, his appearance, as always, very evil!
We always can expect for the worst of him! He is pure evil!
But I think the writer got sooo into it, in Vlad's cruelty, that I think the resolution of Glynis' freedom, was very poor.
Glynis prefer to die than live with him, and that was the only point to make him leave her, finally! A very disappointing conclusion.
But,

I had a lengthy review typed out and submitted but for whatever reason it didn't go through and I didn't think to copy/paste. BLAH. This version of the review is a little bit more snarky than I previously had done but I'm letting my feelings, a glass or two of wine, and my irritation with Goodreads influence me :(

I have to confess I love this series, and I find it even great to re-read. Lament of the Vampire Bride brings Glynis' story arc to an end in as satisfying manner. Recommended to anyone who liked the series.

BUT in all honesty I must admit that the book has a (surprising) flaw. About 80% of the book is evenly paced. – It's similar to the previous book in the series, but might even be a bit slower (but this is good!). But then the story suddenly feels like it's on fast-forward and drops you off at

I enjoyed the book and think it was a good ending. So far I've enjoyed pretty much everything Frater has put out because she has complex storylines, rich characters and believable dialogue. The book was a doozy and really showed some of the psychological trauma you can have from leaving an abusive relationship however Glynis is a feisty character with family around her. I would love to know more about Dracula's first wife and then what happens next for Glynis

Waw! What an ending to this fab trilogy! I'm really sad to see Glynis' story end but it is a beautiful ending and I'm so happy it is a HEA-ending because I was half expecting a not so HEA-ending for Glynis.

I'm a huge fan of Frater's writing and she absolutely delivered again with this trilogy!
Glynis is a strong heroine who is up against a cruel, cunning opponent but luckily she has the love and support of her family to get her through it all and to keep fighting for her freedom.

I was very reluctant to start this series; Dracula, vampires, been there.... However, as I progressed through the books, I became engrossed, and perhaps more important, invested in Glynis and her story. I was almost getting bored during "Lament" until unrealized that it was actually a psychological form of claustrophobia inexperienced along with the cast as they suffered that miserable winter snowed in the mansion. Well done. Zombies, vampires, and now where to next!?

Excellent finale book for this series! I was half way through and thinking about when Vlad would become more involved, and then Hello! It was very intense and often brutal to go through those scenes with her having to endure Vlad. But it made the book and it's story even more powerful to the reader. What a wonderful female heroine!

I've waited a long time for the release of this book. And it was worth every second of the wait. She truly brought this story full circle. It created an intense roller coaster of emotions from start to finish. Never a dull moment!
Lynda Ross
Ok for vamp lovers only

A lot of this series used a very free hand in what vampires can and can not do according to, well, all other vampire books. Was a previous read but too much happy, sappy for me.

Thrilling trilogy

I love this series! Although I was grossed out by the brutality rendered on Glyndis, I was cheering her battles with Vladimir Dracula. All hail, the strong vampire bride.

Wow! It was all that I wanted to happen. A great way to finish the trilogy. I've waited for this last book for 2 years. Very well written and rounded with connections. I need a movie now.

The 3rd book of the series. I was getting a little bored with it but finally around Chapter 16 or so things started happening. A good series to read.
