Dracula. A name of horror, depravity and the darkest sensuality.Yet the real Dracula was just as alluring, just as terrifying, his tale not one of a monster but of a man and a contradiction. For the one they called 'The Devil's Son' was both tyrant and lawgiver, crusader and mass slaughterer, torturer and hero, lover and murderer.

Vlad: The Last Confession spins legend and facts together into a monumental novel of blood, love, and terror. This is the true story of Dracula as it has never been told before.

    " I'm really glad I gave this book a second chance. I found the beginning a little difficult to get into, but once Vlad's story began, I was riveted. The book is engaging, and dare I say, entertaining. Yes, it is historical fiction and some events seem romanticized or stitched together to suit the story, the book does a very nice job of painting a picture of the time period and circumstances, the treachery and betrayal, the brutality brought about by war for land and religion. I picked up this book because I wanted to know more about Vlad Dracula, the man, not the vampire myth, and this book did the job. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about Vlad, the prince and man. "

    " I finally finished this book! It was really hard to get into at first but once I got through the first few chapters, things started to pick up and it got a lot better. It was an interesting read but it is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach! The book talks about Vlad Dracula, also known as the Impaler, and let me tell you they describe very graphically what impaling is. I thought it was like cutting off someone's head and then putting it on a stake for some reason but no I was very wrong! When I first read about impaling it made me almost cry and puke at the same time so be warned! It happens a lot too. But it was still an interesting read with a bit of a twist ending. "

    " The origins of the "real" Dracula, Vlad the impaler. Though i was interested in the story it was still pretty gross. "

    " Interesting and seems historically acurate. "

    " So many books have been written about Dracula. They fall into two categories: either they attempt to vindicate, by explaining his origins and mentality; or the infamous story of Dracula as an un-dead force of evil. This was a stellar attempt to show the more human side of Dracula. Humphreys carefully illustrated Vlad's forced sojourn in the Tokat, the Turkish school of torture, to explain his thirst for blood during his later years. Vlad's brother Radu's imprisonment and then love affair with the Sultan explained Dracula's desire for personal vengeance. Humphreys also added embellishment with the love affair of Ilona and Vlad. But I have to be honest, and this might just be a product of my personality and my upbringing in a world full of Dracula stories; I prefer the vampire. I prefer Elizabeth Kostova's mysterious harbinger of doom and Stoker's unforgettable lord of death. I prefer the myth to the man, and that is no fault of Humphrey's. "

    " Brilliant, utterly compelling historical fiction about the life of Vlad Dracula - the man behind the myth. A fascinating read that keeps you hooked from the first page to the last. "

    " I like historical fiction and this one was a good read. "

    " What a great book! C. C. Humphreys made him human. I will read it again, one day. "

    " Pretty good and the gore in it was really descriptive. Some was a little too over the top but very good. This book has nothing to do with Vampires, but it is based on the Real Dracula who's life everything is based off of because he was such a brutal man. But had many reasons for it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivienne | 5/2/2013

    " Historical fiction featuring Prince Vlad's quest to maintain his nation's sovereignty and reduce control of outside enemies and the bloated boyar class. Major plot elements follow the historical record; no vampires to be found anywhere within. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 12/19/2012

    " Very different almost humanizing portrayal of a madman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shoji | 4/21/2012

    " Good read. Story moved. No sparkly Vampires. "

    " I have read a few of Humphrey's books before, and this one is definetly the best in my opinion. Great storytelling, compelling subject, interesting historical time period, myth busting - what else can you ask from a historical thriller? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 6/11/2011

    " i really liked it.
    it was the vlad dracula story without the vampires...

    graphic though... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milli | 5/26/2011

    " Aha, just as I thought. Dracula was kind of a douche, with a few redeeming qualities. This was a lengthy book about a subject I love, but couldn't get in the mood to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 5/12/2011

    " History mix with a good dose of fiction made me keep right on reading till the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/8/2011

    " An interesting book but not as riveting as I would have liked. I prefer books about Dracula the vampire rather than the Impaler and this book is about the Impaler. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robyn | 12/30/2010

    " I just couldn't get into it. I'd rather read a magazine at night than attempt to get into this story. Too many characters, too confusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelscey | 4/14/2010

    " Move over Bram Stoker,Vlad Dracula is here. Really good. Brilliant characters.This is a book which makes you think.This is definately a case of fact beats fiction.I saw a documentary on him which made me feel ill,not much does and this book did the same "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/1/2010

    " Since I just returned from Dracula's Castle I found this to be most interesting. Especially since the tour guides left out so much of the information I was looking for. It's all right here in this book. "

    " I´m so fascinated with Vlad and the intelligence to learn while he was prisioner by the Turkish. "

    " I dont know i just couldn't get into this book, the start bored me and i just honestly didnt get past 50 pages.
    Maybe I will try again sometime "
