Virgin Vampires: Or, Once Upon a Time in Transylvania Written by Douglas Brode Illustrated by Joe Orsak Review

*I received a copy of this book for my honest review*

This blend of history and dark fantasy feasts upon vampire lore, reinventing the manner in which real-life monsters were transformed into pop culture icons by two of Ireland's great writers. Dubliners Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker travel to Transylvania where they race to save the women they love from the Countess Elizabeth Bathory. After the blood bath, Le Fanu and Stoker pose as doctors John Seward and Abraham Van Helsing to confront Vlad the Impaler and Count Dracula himself. Together for the first time, this immortal cast offers a highly erotic exploration of the vampire's eternal allure.

It was pretty good. The artwork is pretty good and story was decent too. It isn't something I would read over and over again but I think my husband might enjoy this more than I did.

If you are into vampire stories and history then I think you will most likely enjoy this one. It is dark and it isn't for everyone. It is dark and sexual content. 

It did keep me reading and I liked that it isn't anything like I have ever read before. 

I give this 3 out of 5.
