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?

Praise for previous Celia Rees releases from Bolinda Audio: "Shirley Barthelmie's pleasant, even tones provide a strong narration for this chilling story of urban legends that become reality." ( AudioFile Magazine)

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.

A bit predictable

To be fair, it's a vampire story, so of course we know what is going to happen, but even then it was fairly obvious as soon as characters were introduced what part they were going to play.

Saying that, I still enjoyed it.
