The Historian perfectly blends history and folklore as a young woman is plunged into a labyrinthine search for the truth, where the secrets of her family's past connect to an inconceivable evil: the dark fifteenth-century reign of Vlad the Impaler and a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive through the ages.

Our Brilliantly Bookish novels can be ordered on their own or as part of a fabulous Go Away I'm Reading gift set including a bone china mug and cosy reading socks.

What unfolds is an adventure of monumental proportions, journeying from monasteries and dusty libraries to the capitals of Eastern Europe in a feat of storytelling so rich, so hypnotic, so exciting that it has enthralled readers around the world.

Kostova's debut novel is an international best-seller and a Richard and Judy Book Club pick. Acclaimed as a 'natural storyteller' by the San Francisco Chronicle, Kostova has 'refashioned the vampire myth into a compelling contemporary novel, a late-night page-turner'. 'Filled with fascinating details of archaic vampire lore, the splendours of the Ottoman Empire and the beauty of the Romanian countryside' - Times Literary Supplement.
