really liked it

Lots of History about Byzantine empire (eastern rome) and the Ottoman empire. This read like The Da'Vinci Code, where Vlad the Impaler was an acutal person and vampirism is a huge part of the eastern european culture. It tells two stories in one so if you don't mind following different time lines and plots and word choices are a bit fuzzy at times but I think that has to do with the context of the characters for they have many different backgrounds. Good read
