Overview

The tale of Rupert Sent Leger, who has inherited huge amount of money under one condition: to keep it, he must help the people of the Blue Mountain gain their independence. Visited by a young and beautiful lady, he is in despair about whether she might be a vampire. Set in the early nineteenth century, Brams fiction The Lady of the Shroud is full of mystical and super-natural elements. A brilliant presentation of a lady who appears always in a shroud, this work engrosses the readers. The Balkan lands are presented and a slight political touch is also given towards the end. Mesmerizing!

When I purchases Lady of the Shroud I was expecting a horror story somehwat in the style of the immortal classic Dracula, but as it turned out my expectations were incorrect. This is not a horror novel at all but rather a Victorian romantic adventure story. The characters though endearing, are never really well drawn. Aunt Janet's Scottish accent is particularly annoying and I found myself rereading paragraphs several times to try to understand what she was saying. The story starts as a mystery that slowly unravels into a romance. Details about the Land of the Blue Mountains and it's political struggles are tedious, and if you don't pay close to them at the beginning of the story you will be scratching your head later on. Entertaining, yes, a classic--no. It is not difficult to see why there are so few printings of this title left. If you are looking for a good supernatural horror novel, other than Dracula, by Stoker I would greatly recommend The Jewel of the Seven Stars instead. It is much scarier and has an interesting mystery element. Be sure to pick up the unabridged version though, the subsequent revision completely changed the ending (and not for the better).

An interesting read from the author of Dracula. I found it different, but good.
