    Hotel Transylvania is the starter story for the Saint Germaine chronicles (if that is what they are, "officially".... it's the story of a vampire, yes, but no ordinary vampire. Franciscus Rogozy St. Germaine is a nobleman, a "Duke", but more than that, a Knight by choice and long training. A man of honor, with the ability to feel compassion, and affection, even love. Over the course of the first story, which isn't nearly as long as some of Yarbro's other Saint Germaine novels, he becomes involved with a girl whom he eventually comes to love, and has to rescue her from the most dire fate. She is eventually sentenced to die, and he stays with her in her cell, until he manages to find a way to rescue her. Unfortunately, through all of her ordeal, she suffers greatly, and to save her from the true death,Saint Germaine turns her at the end. But the manner in which he turns her is incredibly romantic, not really surprising, but then, he kisses her whole body, exchanging blood with her as he does so, and that ultimately turns her. I was young and not very informed about modern vampire mythology at the time I first read this book, years ago, but it made me an instant fan of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint Germaine books. Like all her Saint Germaine books, it's full of history and pageantry, and a really gribbing "read". I bought the book this year, once again, to build my Saint Germaine library collection. (Originally, I read the hard cover book in my uncle's library back at home. It was an eye opener for me then. The true origin of Saint Germaine's vampirism does not emerge until much later in the novel series, and I finally found and read that this year. What is most fascinating, for me, about this series is that Yarbro based her character development for Saint Germaine on a true historic figure, a Duke Rogozy Saint Germaine that she discovered in her research. I found the same man in my search for background on this character decades ago. LIke Yarbro, I was amazed to find such a person actually existed, and he was, apparently, in the bloodline of the Hungarian Princes, a "son" or a close relative to Vlad Tepis, the original Dracula. Yarbro researches her stories extensively before writing, and the Saint Germaine Chronicles are, frankly, daunting... enormous. While some might think it would be better to start of reading the series with "Out of the House of Life", which tells t he story of Saint Germaine's origin as a vampire, I believe this story, the original first story in the series, remains the best place to start. It provides an excellent introduction to two main characters, Rogozy and his lifetime true love. Both appear an many other Saint Germaine novels, although rarely together after the first one.

    Saint Germaine returns to France and reclaims his former residence, the Hotel Transylvania. This is book one in what looks like a superb vampire series and I am looking forward to reading the rest. The historical research and the style of writing are most faithful to the period of Louis xv and the action takes place in 1743. The characters display the thoughts and sentiments of this period, and the romance is done likewise. I loved the descriptions of the clothes and the very French surroundings. Yet there were dangers building and this is a book for those who can afford to read about violence and satanic ritual. Mostly this was concentrated towards the end of the book, but it was fairly graphic. I would not recommend this for children. I do recommend this to vampire lovers.

    I enjoy the period setting, but would enjoy it that much more of this digital version had been edited with care. There are so many scanning issues that it just drives me batty. This isn't the first book like this. Frankly, I miss the old books that were typed up by volunteers when Amazon first started doing digital books. The copy I have of Dracula is flawless. This...not so much. It makes the entire reading experience difficult.

    To be honest, I haven't read a lot of vampire books. I've got the basics, like Dracula and Varney, and I watched Buffy and Angel religiously and even read some of those books. I read several PN Elrod books, Laurel Hamilton books, and a few other authors' takes on the vampire mythos. But even so, this seems very different to me. For one thing, the whole blood drinking thing isn't overdone. Yes, it happens, but it's not a huge part of the story - almost blink & you miss it. This vampire can also walk in daylight just by wearing shoes with dirt from his homeland.I don't know how historically accurate the details are, but they SEEMED real. The writing is beautiful and lyrical, so though this isn't the kind of fast-paced adventure story I prefer, it was such a good read that I've already bought the sequel. (The Palace, though since these aren't in chronological order, it probably doesn't matter.)
