Audible Editor Reviews

Shirley Barthelmie gives a disquieting, captivating performance of the supernatural thriller Blood Sinister by best-selling author Celia Rees. Sixteen-year-old Ellen is dying of unknown causes. At her grandmother’s house, she discovers her great-grandmother’s enthralling diaries. She is the splitting image of her great-grandmother, who was to marry a mysterious and seductive count. Soon, her reality and the terrifying events of the diary become intertwined. As her illness gets worse, she wonders: Do the diaries hold the key to her cure?

Publisher's Summary

A gripping supernatural thriller from acclaimed author Celia Rees. From the best-selling author of Pirates!, #3 in the American Library Associations Teen's Top Ten 2004.

Ellen's just 16, but she's dying-and nobody knows why. So when she's sent to her grandmother's house she's relieved to find a distraction in the form of her great-grandmother's diaries, written when she was Ellen's age. As Ellen reads, she becomes increasingly embroiled in the fascinating story of her life. Who is the enigmatic and seductive Count her great-grandmother was supposed to marry? And why is it that Ellen and her great-grandmother resemble each other so much that they could be twins? But Ellen's condition is worsening, and it's becoming more and more difficult for her to distinguish her own life from the nightmarish events recorded in the diaries. Is the past destroying her, or do the diaries hold the key to Ellen's survival?

    "total fun"

    this was just fun to listen to - very well read - narrator is great - good story - maybe a little simple but a fun, well done vampire story and perfectly fine for teens or preteens too.
