Read It Now!
The read of a lifetime-page turner! Horror fans, take note. Countess Bathory truly was a bloodthirsty royal in the 1500s. Set in the 1500's, Medieval Blood details how she might have killed her victims--and why. Learn about her reign of terror over her castle and servants. She was convicted of the murder of many people, because she thought that their blood would rejuvenate her skin. This is an entirely fictional account based on the story but horrifying none the less.
"I think the author did an amazing job bringing a bit of history to life. The book has a bit of a twist at the end which I would have thought interesting to learn about in more detail. All in all this is a quick read that will have readers eagerly turning the pages to see what happens."
From the Author
I found the story of Countess Bathory to be fascinating. Now several books and films have been written about her, but I like to think this is how it transpired...
From the Inside Flap
I was fascinated to learn about Countess Bathory on a podcast, Stuff You Didn't Learn in History Class. It made me wonder what I could learn about her, and I was able to find some information. The rest is scientific conjecture, or in other words, fictional license. I hope you enjoy learning about her and her horrific crimes.
