The Blood Confession by Alisa M. Libby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked this book. It wasn't the kind of book that I couldn't wait to pick up and read but when I did, I was glad to be reading it. It is a historical fiction about Elizabeth Bathory, whom some people think that Bram Stoker developed his Dracula character from. I can say it is a def. possibility. The story starts out with Elizabeth held captive for crimes. It flips back and forth from current day to how she became captive. I am not sure how much is fiction and how much at it is facts, but it is a really interesting story. I plan to research a little bit more to find out what they really did know about her.
One thing that I thought is that the author would have made me feel for the character, but I never really did? Maybe it was how it was written and the author never intended that, or maybe I am heartless? LOl
In my opinion, this book is not for a younger crowd. It is bloody and gory at times and lots of death scenes. I don't think it is a necessary read, but if you like historical fiction, mixed in with a little scariness, you will enjoy this.
