Product details

Product description


This literary thriller is a page-turner with brains - Daily Mail

The Historian amounts to something profound...and wondrously mathematical at times, a genre novel by Bach... We encounter obsession, possession, and the struggle against the brevity of life. It is an exploration of the eternal desire for intimacy...Kostova captures, beautifully, the turn on a dime from light to dark - The Times

The Historian is great fun...told with a compelling intensity which will keep the reader hooked until the last Undead tomb door swings shut - Sunday Telegraph

Filled with fascinating details of archaic vampire lore, the splendours of the Ottoman Empire and the beauty of the Romanian countryside - TLS

Kostova s research is exemplary...if you re drawn to the gothic in fiction, reading this on hot nights will induce a few shivers - Herald

Book Description
