I have just finished reading this book. What is your opinion on the general premise of the book? Do you think it is possible or is it just pure fantasy?

I read this book a while back and loved it. I think it is pure fantasy but a great premise. The details about the history and locations surrounding Vlad (Dracula) were very well researched and well presented. She made it seem almost possible.

I know it is a work of fiction, pure speculation with bits of historical facts woven in by the author. "The Historian" is a great read though. I was completly glued to it, start to finish. Elizabeth Kostova has a remarkable voice. I do believe that some of the facts about Vlad the Impaler are actual and were taken from recordings at the time.
