Twilight Over Moldavia, by Stephanie Burkhart

Stephanie Burkhart takes us on a wonderful tour of this magical country that gave rise to vampires and werewolves, with austere castles perched on high cliffs, and their many secret passages. There is even an explanation of how the first vampire, Vlad the impaler, came to be.

I didn't mind that the author took a few liberties with history, since she gives the reader a warning up front. Her compelling characters are young and extremely likeable... Prince Stephan is wise beyond his years, and Princess Caroline is strong and compassionate. They face a dangerous fate, as they plan their royal wedding, the unification of Romania, and do so as they struggle to defeat a curse... not to forget falling in love, despite the trappings of their political marriage.

In this novel full of danger and intrigue, sexy scenes, and unspeakable secrets, the werewolves are the villains, and oh how dangerous they are, and unwashed, and uncivilized. The kind of villains you love to hate.

I would recommend to read the first book to better understand the enchanted nineteenth century world the author created for this series. I can't wait for book three


Also available in eBook in nook at B&N and at Amazon in kindle, as well as at ARe.
