    ePUB Florence Marryat × × The Blood of the Vampire eBook ¶ The Blood PDF/EPUB blood kindle, vampire kindle, The Blood free, of the epub, Blood of the pdf, The Blood of the Vampire PDFI am actually torn by this book On one hand it is a novel that is ahead of its time It features themes of otherness racism genetic inheritance loneliness and sexism to name a few ideas On the other hand it is not daring enough and its conclusion punishes and sacrifices a supposed bad' girl to make some purportedly poor but deserving good girl rich To put it concisely this book is about slut shaming than anything elseI know that today we have discovered that sociopathy is inheritable but the main character is not a sociopath She is not a rabid killer who wants blood and drains people to keep living She wants love which is seen as unnatural in the story even for an orphan who was walled up in a nunnery for ten years Her passionate and blooming sexual nature which would be considered demure these days is vilified as are all displays of

    ePUB Florence Marryat × × The Blood of the Vampire eBook ¶ The Blood PDF/EPUB blood kindle, vampire kindle, The Blood free, of the epub, Blood of the pdf, The Blood of the Vampire PDFAn interesting foray into old gothic literature and the history of how the vampire theme was approached by authors before Bram Stocker and other classics It's also interesting in light of the pervasive casual racism to be encountered both in the characters including the internalized kind and in the author herself It's sadly explainable considering the times it was written in and interesting on an anthropological note but it makes the novel a bit unpleasant to read Beyond the eye rolls though it's a well paced story and it's sad that the author was not promoted and recognized in her own time at least compared to male authors who were her peers

    ePUB Florence Marryat × × The Blood of the Vampire eBook ¶ The Blood PDF/EPUB blood kindle, vampire kindle, The Blood free, of the epub, Blood of the pdf, The Blood of the Vampire PDFMarryat’s vampire story was published in 1897 the same year that Bram Stoker's Dracula was released and thus is a rather unknown vampire story This actually surprised me as her novel is frightening subtly disturbing and has a rather modern concept Instead of drinking blood Harriet Brand is a psychic vampire who draws the life out of those she loves While I do not think it is uite as brilliant as some other classic vampire novels from this period it is still excellently written and I only really had an issue with the long gossiping scenes which made it at times a little tedious to read Having said that The Blood of The Vampire is stereotypical of its time but also very uniue in the way vampirism works and thus it sets itself apart from others If you are a fan of classic vampire tales this is definitely a must read for you

    ePUB Florence Marryat × × The Blood of the Vampire eBook ¶ The Blood PDF/EPUB blood kindle, vampire kindle, The Blood free, of the epub, Blood of the pdf, The Blood of the Vampire PDFThis novel was first published in 1897 – yes the same year as Dracula Readers may well find the poisonously racist views expressed by the old doctor who I think is intended to be a fairly sympathetic character chilling than the suggestions of vampirism and end up with a good deal of sympathy for the most unwilling vampire Harriet Brandt with her sad heritage Apart from her unfortunate tendency to cause the death of anyone she is fond of she is blamed by the other characters for having a good appetite for food and for being sexually attractive – and the author seems implicitly to be blaming her as wellWell worth reading as a companion to 'Dracula'
