    1. I don't give 5-stars often, in fact, half of the ones I gave this year are all for Rhiannon's As the World Dies series, so I was a bit afraid to give this a 5 and have you think it's only because I heart Rhiannon, thus I'm biased, but no, she deserves every single one of these stars. I guess in a way I am biased, she's just one of those authors who could make restaurant menus the best thing you've read all year. She takes a story and gives it heart, filling it with characters who bring it to lif [...]

    2. I wrote this novel, so of course I love it.But fair warning to the paranormal romance fansis book is gothic horror.

    3. Having had the absolute honor and pleasure to be the editor for this outstanding book, I may be a little bit biased. That said, though I am not a vampire buff, I found this to be a wholly terrific story. It will be tough to review this with no spoilers, but I am going to give it the old college try!It is a period piece, set in the 1800s, and the main character, Lady Glynis, spoiled, outspoken and headstrong, is one hell of a character. She is beautiful and intelligent, and wants what she wants. [...]

    4. I admit it. I have a vampire thing along with half a million other people However, I am starting to notice that most of the leading male vamps are well kinda soft Like seriously, what's the point of dating a Vampire who'd rather not drink blood and glitters in the sun? I like my Vamps with a heavy dose of bad assness. Enter Vlad The Impaler.Nice.It was on reputation alone that I kindled this book. I've really been getting burnt with the Vampire Romance thing and didn't really know if I could rea [...]

    5. Plenty of reviews already for this novel that I would describe as "gothic horror." The bride in question is Lady Glynis Wright who finds herself manipulated / forced into a marriage with Vlad Dracula. It isn't a match "made in heaven." I enjoyed some parts of the novel more so than others. The first half of the novel lagged a bit but the second half did gain momentum. Found the secondary characters to be the more interesting, namely Astir, Ignatius and the mortal Andrew. They had the more depth [...]

    6. This book had me on the edge of my bed, seat, and sanity. This is by far the best version of Dracula I've ever read or watched on television. This is a thriller that's sure to keep you turning the page from one dark scene to the next. Umm. the sisters and vampire mother in this story were some weirdo freaks. Seriously strange little blood sucking freaketts.

    7. The first 1/2 of this book was a bit slow and I was nervous that it was going to just be a 'meh' book for me. But with everything that happened at the end, explains why the author took her time to tell this story of Lady Glynis who was changed into one of Dracula's brides against her will. I could rate this anywhere between 3-5 stars. 3 for the slowness of the beginning and 5 for the last 1/3 of the book which was great! It was full of action, love and resolution. I will be picking up the next b [...]

    8. Gothic Horror at it's best, Amazing!Miss Frater works magic with her writing, and storytelling ability.Seriously, she can make you hate the worse character with bile rising within' your mouth, wanting to tear into the book and strangle the monster within the pages, to actually feeling a tender spot for this unmerciful character.Lady Glynis Wright a young lady who has reached the age of marriage is a strong, outspoken, feisty, character. It's the 1800's, and her parents decide it is time for her [...]

    9. What I liked:*Good, descriptive writing that really sets the mood of the book. The story is loosely based on Bram Stoker's take on Dracula and the writing is similar in style.*Dracula is portrayed as a complex character and you can't help but be both horrified and intrigued by him.* There were moments when I wondered where the plot was going but just as my mind was about to wander off, a new twist is added to the storyline that gets my full attention and made me turn the pages quicker.*The story [...]

    10. I had the pleasure of reading this book a few weeks ago. It is truly one of the best vampire novels I have read in a very long time. This book allows us to see another dimension of the legendary vampire and slip into their skin. Reading "The Tale of the Vampire Bride", will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and it's no kiddy ride.Thoroughly enjoyable and in the ilk of Bram Stoker's original "Dracula", I highly recommend this read for any fan of the vampire genre.

    11. I’ve been taking some time after reading this novel in order to culminate my thoughts on it. It’s not because I’m lazy in writing reviews (because trust me, I try to write a review for each and every small press/independent book I read if only because I want to support them,) but it’s because I wanted some time to think about the story in whole. There’s a lot to think about, considering its first print run was somewhere near the five-hundred page mark, so without further ado, here’s [...]

    12. Wow !***Something or other compelled me to get this book and give it a go. Perhaps it was the mention of Dracula. I loved Bram Stoker’s Dracula and I hoped Rhiannon Frater’s attempt at a book around this character would be great.It wasn’t great, it was awesome. I enjoyed this story set in the 1800s. A gothic horror story that kept me glued and my phone battery at a constant brink of death (Kindle app on phone.)Glynis is young lady from a respected English family. Her mother is Italian, her [...]

    13. Told in a series of journal entries, The Tale of the Vampire Bride is the dark and frustrating story of Lady Glynis who becomes Count Dracula's newest bride. I thought I was going to really like it in the beginning, since Glynis is not ladylike at all. Her parents are having trouble marrying her off until a foreign count shows interest in her. But upon arriving at his castle, they know something is very off about the count. Dracula isn't about to let Glynis go, and uses his power to dispose of h [...]

    14. This was a toughie. The Tale of the Vampire Bride puts a different spin on Dracula from a view of a new "bride", Glynis, and is made up of mostly her journal entries and letters. I wanted to seriously give up about 10% in and briefly hated the author for subjecting my mind to such cruelty. Yes, I know this is horror but I figured it would be just blood-and-guts, not the personal kind of horrors happening one after another in such a short space of time that would be everyone's worst nightmare. Th [...]

    15. 5 starsy likeOne Million Stars. This book has everything I want and more in vampire books. I don't mind new age vampire novels with their lovey feely vampires that sparkle and have sweet dogs. I don't absolutely love them either. I may like the romance of the the story but for the most part I find vampires like that kinda meh. I have never had a problem finding anything Rhiannon does as meh. Ever. If I am going to lose myself in a vampire book I WANT my vampires to be horrifying. I want them blo [...]

    16. You know when you get a present from someone that you really don’t know all that well. You haven’t told them what you wanted, yet you take it with some trepidation, but at the same time you have this internal excitement that you just might get something super good? That is what reading The Tale of the Vampire Bride was about. I have to admit that about a quarter way through the book I hated it. I wanted to stop and tell everyone about the bitter taste it left in my mouth. However, I am a suc [...]

    17. Don't let the pretty lady on the cover fool you. This is NOT a heart-wrenching cheesy romance! If you are looking for light 'sparkly vampire' fluffy romance type of reading, look elsewhere.This is a REAL HORROR in every sense of the word! Its full of dark deeds that will make your blood freeze. It made my cry, terrified me, enraged me, horrified me, outraged me and god knows what else. But not for one moment was i bored or indifferent about it! I recommend it for real horror lovers.

    18. This was the Dracula I remember reading about in my teens. The story was dark and brutal, with a leading lady who was strong and defiant. Just couldn't put the book down. I would have liked more info at the end but maybe there will be book 2?

    19. Four stars: A terrifying tale that takes us back to the most famous vampire of all time!Glynis resents the fact that she is being carted all over Europe to prospective male suitors. Why does she have to marry? Why can't she be free to choose her own mate and live a life free of societal constraints? As the coach lumbers up the treacherous mountain road, she feels an overwhelming sense of foreboding. When their journey is suddenly halted by boulders in the road, her anxiety grows. The giant rocks [...]

    20. Original post here: offbeatvagabond/2012/08/indie-book-review-tale-of-vampire-bridemlThis is a story about a young woman named Lady Glynis Wright. Her and her family are off to meet the husband that her family has chosen for her, Prince Vlad Dracula. He comes off as a gracious host who would want nothing more than to have Glynis for his wife. He is so taken by her beauty. But she refuses him because she knows there is something wrong about him. She doesn't know just how deep her refusal effects [...]

    21. I had the pleasure of featuring the first chapter of Rhiannon's new novel, The Tale of the Vampire Bride, back in November. When I read said chapter myself, I have to say that I was very, very hesitant to read the remainder of the novel. Why? Because I was afraid I'd be very jealous that I didn't write the darn thing myself.Not one to shy away from my fears (except spiders, but that's a different story ;-), I ordered Rhiannon's novel when it came out last December. I read it, all 484 pages -- it [...]

    23. If you like your vampires classically wicked, nasty and powerful, you'll love this nightmare of a tale from Rhiannon Frater! Frater has become known as of late for her zombie trilogy, As The World Dies, and the hugely popular The Last Bastion of the Living: A Futuristic Zombie Novel. But before zombies, I think she loved her vampires a bit more. Case in point, the classic and sophisticated nightmare-ish tale of The Vampire Bride.Told in the first person through diary entries, Lady Glynis Wright [...]

    24. Simply put, this is another one of those novels that you will either love or hate. As for me, my goodness I loved it!Lady Glynis Wright is Dracula’s love interest of choice in Rhiannon Frater’s dark and gothic novel. She aspires for a carefree life where she can seek out her own opportunities, however her aristocratic parents have other plans in mind. They want their daughter married to a man of high status and means. Unfortunately, their ambition leads to nothing but trouble as they wind up [...]

    25. Edit: 12/4/12 - I have decided that I didn't like my wording on a few things so I've tweaked the review. Still love the book! I loved this book! It kept me awake the night I finished because I couldn’t stop thinking about Glynis, the main character, and how this part of her story ended. As a woman, I appreciated her strength but she did try my patience a few times. In the end I decided that it was okay for her to be a little petulant (stomping her foot and pouting when she didn’t get her way [...]

    26. This book was pretty awesome. It was very old school vampire It sort of had this feel to it.Except the vampire looked more like thisExcept he had a mustacheCrap. I can't get this right :/You get the point though. He was hot and he had a mustache. I used to think those two were mutually exclusive, but Rhiannon Frater has some serious powers of persuasion because I was sensing some serious hotness from the main vampire/bad guy. (I looooove it when you can't figure out if you're supposed to love or [...]

    27. I almost gave up on this book several times, now I am glad I finished. Once you are a little over half way through it gets really good. Gladyis is a young England aristocrat whose family is trying to find a husband for her and her sister. In those days it was the families desire to find their daughters wealthy husbands so their daughters could be taken care of. Because of Gladys' flippant attitude to the men as well as the idea of marriage she has few offers. When they receive word that a Count [...]
