Review: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

Last week I finished The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, easily my favourite book of the year!! I enjoy reading historical fiction but this particular style/plot weaving was completely new to me. This novel is a combination of everything I love: mystery, danger, research, libraries, ancient ruins, murder, supernatural, ancient texts, and the basis for all this is vampire lore. 

What more could you ask for?

I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a thriller and the search for truth.

Book of the year!!

My rating = *****

Carpe Librum!
