    Not quite 3 stars, but rounding up for the gothic atmosphere.This is an homage toDraculaand Northanger Abbey, and I think anyone who enjoyed both of those books would enjoy this one as well It started out as quite an enjoyable read, but then it lost me somewhere along the way inside the creepy castle and the vampire mystery that just wouldn t end Also, am not a fan of va
