Happy Monday my friends!
Strange times we live in, scary times. It feels eerily quiet in the blogisphere, but I’m trying to use this time, to catch up on long over-due reviews, reading, and in general take comfort in books.
To that end, I have a mini review of a fabulous story I read ages ago! Big thanks to the fine folks at Simon Schuster Canada and of course to the author, for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
The Lady Rogue (Publication Date: September 3rd, 2019)
Some legends never die…
Traveling with her treasure-hunting father has always been a dream for Theodora. She’s read every book in his library, has an impressive knowledge of the world’s most sought-after relics, and has all the ambition in the world. What she doesn’t have is her father’s permission. That honor goes to her father’s nineteen-year-old protégé—and once-upon-a-time love of Theodora’s life—Huck Gallagher, while Theodora is left to sit alone in her hotel in Istanbul.
Until Huck returns from an expedition without her father and enlists Theodora’s help in rescuing him. Armed with her father’s travel journal, the reluctant duo learns that her father had been digging up information on a legendary and magical ring that once belonged to Vlad the Impaler—more widely known as Dracula—and that it just might be the key to finding him.
Journeying into Romania, Theodora and Huck embark on a captivating adventure through Gothic villages and dark castles in the misty Carpathian Mountains to recover the notorious ring. But they aren’t the only ones who are searching for it. A secretive and dangerous occult society with a powerful link to Vlad the Impaler himself is hunting for it, too. And they will go to any lengths—including murder—to possess it.

Such a great adventure!
I absolutely love books with strong female characters, and The Lady Rogue had a great one in Theodora!
I never get tired of reading Dracula inspired tales, so when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. Thankfully it did not disappoint!
Captivating prose, excellent villains, and tons of action made this an excellent read! Additionally, the action-packet plot blended beautifully with the historical fiction, and I love Eastern European history and folklore.
This book had everything, including a little romance, and I would happily recommend it to all sorts of readers! An easy 5 stars for me!
