    • A good concept, this novel is complete in itself and can be read on its own. It's generally well written, although for me the middle could have been condensed somewhat. While characters and relationships are well developed, the various historical social backgrounds seem sketchy. The plot is not always entirely logical (especially near the end), which caused me to lose engagement with the story while I wondered why The intimate details of the vampires' lives make for interesting reading, and I be [...]

    • WOW! First off I want to commend the author on an excellent, well told story. I can't believe that this is Ms. Marlow's first novel. Second, if you have read Bram Stoker's Dracula, you will appreciate the format that the author used to tell her story. I actually recommend that you read Dracula so that you can fully appreciate what an excellent job the author has done continuing on with the characters from that original work of art. I personally have read the book and quite honestly had no sympat [...]

    • I loved everything about this book.This is a fast paced horror/lovestory.The writting style was so smooth flowing, I never found my self bored with any part of this book. I couldn't put it down Some of my favorite parts were the journal entrys. This helped with knowing who was telling this part of the story. I loved that you took a "classical" story but told through the wifes eyes.Thought this is a horror story,it was also a love story. I loved the way the characters evolved arround their love/h [...]

    • Dracula: Man Or Monster??? I'm thinking both This was a great, fantastic, amazing look into the life his brides would have had. Every coin has two sides, I think it was a look into who Dracula could have been both husband and Man.d sometimes monster. I really did not know what to expect from this book. But wow what a page turner. In one word "eloquent". I found this author to be a breath of fresh air. The Wive/Wives each had their own vivid personality. Well done!! I think this is just a must re [...]

    • When Van Helsing died, he left a diary. That, in turn, led to more diaries by the Mrs. Dracula`s. The story is told from the wives perspective.Valeria's father aligned their family with Count Dracula by Valeria's marriage to him. The Count was a good man, but he scared her very much. He had courted her for a short time, so they weren't strangers when the wedding finally took place. The sex was more wonderful than she could imagine. Afterwards, she lay with her head on his chest and listened to h [...]

    • This is a beautifully written story. I was afraid that since I haven't read Bram Stokers's Dracula, that I would be confused, but that wasn't the case. This story pulled me in and I felt everything that these characters were going through, which was quite stressful at times. The story begins with a letter from Van Helsing concerning the fate of the wives of Dracula. From the beginning I was curious as to what has become of these wives. The story then goes to a journal entry from the first wife, [...]

    • Being Mrs. Dracula is a book that seems to defy all genre classification. Twenty pages in and you might think you are reading a stylized paranormal romance. But give it twenty more pages and it starts to feel like a vicious revenge story. Twenty more pages and you will swear you are reading a dramatized history of a jilted princess. The book is a roller coaster ride through the world of genre and emotions. Faith Marlow does a wonderful job of defining the three distinct personas of the wives of [...]

    • A very unique take on a classic horror tale. There was a sense of love and hate thru out the entire book. The story is told from the Brides of Dracula's point of view. This was such an unique insight to the characters flaws and all. It was easy to find relatable comparison to real life situations skillfully crafted to make the reader want more and to keep turning the page for the next juicy bit. Here are my thoughts:Valeria Karajan is betrothed to a man she has not meet Count Vlad Dracula. She i [...]

    • Wow! What a read! This is Dracula told from a completely different angle--- the POV of his wives (yes, that's right, more than one).Written as a diary, beginning with the first wife Valeria, we are introduced to a woman who is full of hope for a happy marriage. She is very much in love with her new husband but he is soon called off to war and comes back a changed man. As the war continues and more wives are added to the story, the POV changes to the different women in Dracula's life. They are ea [...]

    • First, this is not your normal paranormal romance that you will find on my blog. No big problem to be solved, big alfa man rescues woman and they live happily ever after. But sometimes you just have to go back to the basics. Faith Marlow has written a great story about the up and downs of the three woman behind the (selfish) Mr. Dracula. I have to say that if it was my husband i would have dumped him at the first corner. Not these woman, they stick to their man till the last fang! The book is a [...]

    • This book was not something I would normally read but I'm so glad I did. This is the story of, literally, Being Mrs. Dracula. The years and years that are spent dealing with all the different things this man they loved and hated could throw at them. It is very well written, although I would have liked a little more action, just what I'm used to reading. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend!

    • Being Mrs. Dracula is a wonderful book and a wonderful surprise and to be honest I think that the author was very brave to write a story that still has to be confronted with the ultimate gothic novel "Dracula" by Bram Stoker.The story is well written and the choice to tell the story in the form of a diary, it made possible to trace through more than four centuries, the life story of Count Dracula through the diaries of his wives, according to their different points of view. In this way, the time [...]

    • Originally published on Bookluvrs Haventext'Dracula' is one of my favorite books of all time. I have read it more times than I can count. Bram Stoker brings to life, in its pages, characters such as the Count, of course, Jonathan Harker, Mina, and the unforgettable Van Helsing, as well as a wide cast of minor characters. Three forgettable characters are the Count's three vampire brides. They make a brief appearance in the beginning when Harker is held prisoner in Dracula's castle, and within the [...]

    • Being Mrs. Dracula was an excellent read and a fantastic look into the lives of the wives of Count Dracula. This book starts off with a letter from Van Helsing to Jonathan Harker that tells the run-in that he experienced with the wives of the count. The book is written in a diary format that begins with Valeria being married to the count. Like some of the other readers Valeria remained my favorite wife through-out the whole book. The betrayal that she faced from the Count made me feel so much sy [...]

    • Although I am an avid reader of Vampire fiction I am ashamed to say Bram Stoker's Dracula remains on my 'to be read' list, so I began "Being Mrs Dracula" with some trepidation.The book begins with Van Helsing's letter to Jonathan Harker, confessing that he has found the journals of Count Dracula's brides, and as Harker opens these we are plunged into a sometimes terrifying, sometimes evil, sometimes beautiful but at other times heart-breaking world - told through the eyes of Valeria, Ilona and F [...]

    • This book is a different take on the classic Dracula. Faith Marlow tells not The Count's story, but that of his three wives, in their own voices.This book has the unique concept being the voices of the wives vs. the master vampires himself. Ms. Marlow did an excellent job with her character development through their various life changes in the novel. In addition, she was able to convey their thoughts and emotions very clearly. Ms. Marlow created three women with different personalities, differen [...]

    • Loved, loved, loved this book!!! The novel is written in part diary, part letter, and part story form from the voices of Valeria, Ilona, and Fleur. Coursing over four hundred years the novel shows how the three wives became Countesses and their feud and love with each other as well as with their husband, Count Vlad Dracula. Although I favored Valeria, the first wife, there were moments I was eagerly hoping that Dracula favored a different. In other moments, I hated the Count for leaving the wive [...]

    • UPFRONT: I got this book free from the author in return for an honest review.HONEST REVIEW: This book rocks. I haven't read Dracula in a loooong time and was hoping that not having the story fresh in my mind wouldn't take away from my enjoyment of the story. Nope, not at all. What a cool concept. The author manages a 'classic literature' writing style without the 'classic literature' boring. The diary-entry style was super interesting, alternating between the three wives.I laughed out loud, I cr [...]

    • If I could only describe this book in one word, it would have to be beautiful. It was so well written and flowed so perfectly. It kept my attention throughout the entire story and never once did I get bored or irritated and wish that things would just "hurry up". That's definitely a common problem of mine.For this being Faith's first book, I am just totally shocked. I just can't get over the writing! You could easily read Bram Stoker's Dracula and then jump right into this and not even notice th [...]

    • Id give this book 7 stars. this book by first time author Faith Marlow was out of this world. Dracular has taken 4 wives, Valeria, was #1 who was furious to find in her home Ilona #2 and they despised #3 Fleur. and #4 just got close when the first 3 tried to kill her.This story is about the love of these woman had for Dracular and his love for them, also the hard times threat came upon them. Dracular loved to move around to different countries and stay for years, either with all his wives or jus [...]

    • As I was reading this book I was intrigued at the beginning, bored/lost in the middle with all of the diary entries and the ending really brought it around for me. I think that this story was a little too long for me and it was something that made me get bored. There was too much information in the diary entries that I didn't really care for. I thought it was an okay read but it just wasn't for me. The ending of this book really saved it from getting 1 or 2 stars for me. I liked the style of wri [...]

    • I've had this little gem on my Kindle for quite some time and finally opened the pages. And I wasn't disappointed! The book begins in 1897 and then the author, Faith Marlow brought me back, way, way back to 1460. To Vlad Dracula and his marriage to Valeria. Ms. Marlow set the stage well, and honesty, I felt like I was viewing a movie. (I recently watched Dracula Untold) It felt real. In order to pass through time, four hundred years, the author sets us up with diary journals from Dracula's wives [...]

    • Being Mrs. Dracula tells the story, half through Epistolary style, half diary/memoir,and the other half prose fiction, of the relationship between Dracula and his three brides,here named Valeria, Ilona and Fleur in that order. What's interesting about this book is Faith Marlow spending most of the time on the brides,and not making this another Dracula clone. Overall I liked this book, and recommend it to vampire, Dracula fans.

    • "Being Mrs. Dracula" by Faith Marlow was such a treat! It was so beautifully written and compelling that I wasn't able to put it down when I was reading it. The novel was based on Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale, Dracula and the historical figure, Vlad Dracul, who ruled Wallachia (the present day Romania) in the mid 15th century. The story revolve around the three women who made such an impact on Vlad's life, their thoughts and feelings towards their husband, as well as their experiences as t [...]

    • I'm left with mixed emotions from this book. Bram Stoker's Dracula has always been a favorite read of mine. I loved the premise of this story since it focuses on the three vampire sisters that Stoker depicted as sensual predators who deceive their prey with their beauty. This book follows the journey of each of these women as they evolve from being naive and sheltered women and into predators, lovers and sisters. The story begins with the diary of the first bride Valeria. She meets & weds Vl [...]

    • I saw the title and blurb for this book and I just HAD to have it!!! I was so entranced in the way this author wrote this story. This book was not based on Dracula himself, like so many others are. No, this book was based on his wives. I absolutely love how the author intertwined the life of each wife. It was so fascinating, and entertaining, and addictive, I stayed up to wee hours in the morning until I finished this amazing story. I loved every moment of this book from beginning to end. This a [...]

    • I absolutely loved this book. I have always been a fan of the Dracula story and even I never gave a thought to the beautiful deadly women who were the wives of Dracula. Faith Marlowe did, and what a brilliant idea it was and a wonderful treat for someone like me. The story is compelling. The Brides using journals to record their personal journey as the wife of the blood thirsty count. Valaria the first wife, married to the Count when both were mortal. Proud and stunningly beautiful. Ice and fire [...]

    • I LOVED this book! Marlow does a phenomenal job with writing and portraying the lives of Dracula's wives. In being Mrs. Dracula we are introduced to the three wives, Valeria, Ilona, and Fleur. Marlow does a fantastic job of depicting the three wives, giving them each different personalities, but yet also all having the love for the same man/monster. My favorite wife, Valeria. She is an amazingly strong character but we also get glimpse to see her at times of vulnerability. The storyline flows we [...]

    • It is just amazing how Ms. Marlow allows us to see thru the eyes of the women from Count Dracula’s life. We all have our thoughts of how Count existed but to see his love and hate and how he dealt with it was a true eye opener the way Ms. Marlow wrote it. I found myself living the dreams and nightmares of each individual wife and how they dealt with all the changes they endured thru the years. Not sure that I could really say who was my favorite as each one had her own redeemable quality and o [...]

    • I followed the advice of a review suggesting that the book would be better appreciated if Bram Stoker's Dracula was read first. So glad I did so because, although the story definitely stand on it's own, I felt that having read Dracula first added that extra dimension to a fantastic story. I felt that the stories of the two books were tied together very clevery.Although the story was told through the diaries of the Brides I also felt that we got a better insight into the character of Dracula hims [...]
