Inhaltsangabe zu „The Impaler's Revenge (The Impaler Legacy ) (Volume 1)“ von Ioana Visan

In a world crawling with vampires, Romania is the safest place left on earth. Thanks to the Little Council, there hasn't been a vampire on Romanian ground in over five centuries. But one day, Liana Cantacuzino, also a member of the Little Council and a descendant of one of the old noble families, is ordered to bring one in, covertly. Enter Maximilien Hess, a thousand years old vampire determined to ruin the existing order of things. Suddenly, Liana finds herself forced to protect Hess, instead of having the pandurs kill him. With the help from her trustful friends, Rodica Ghica and Stefan Sturdza, and that of an innocent bystander, Dr. Jesse Carver, Liana has to find out what is going on and what the President is hiding from her. When all is revealed, Hess's secret changes everything. The first novella in The Impaler Legacy series, a vampire saga like no other.

    In this book, Romania remains the only 'fang-free' place in a world with vampires. But when a vampire is brought into the country for some secret political reasons, things start getting ugly... While I appreciated the author's effort to spin a fresh tale of vampire lore and bring in several new ideas, I felt lost more than once. Especially at the beginning I had a hard time figuring out what the Little Council was all about and how Romania came to be the only vampire-free country - unfortunately, the book contains little to none background information, and only by bits and pieces was I able to make sense of what was going on. Also, I could not understand what the great fuss was about when a vampire was brought into the country. Had the author explained the background of her vampire universe, the Little Council and Liana's (the girl who is to handle him) history with more detail, everything would have made better sense. Furthermore, Liana's whining and complaining tone got on my nerves. Dialogues seemed unoriginal most of the time and several twists felt constructed or thrown in at random. I would definitely have gotten more out of this book if the author had taken her time building a solid background for her vampire universe and characters. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
