I really enjoy the Victorian mysteries this author writes, so when I saw this title I figured I'd give it a try. I didn't like it as much as her Victorian tales. It's an atmospheric Gothic tale set in Rumania. I think part of the genre is for the reader to not completely know what is going on (are the monsters real or just the stuff of legend?) but I found that perspective irritating rather than spooky. With so many books today assuming the monsters are real for the sake of the story, this one that leaves the question open wasn't that much fun.
