A modern twist to an ancient mystery

progenyElizabeth Bathory, a Hungarian Countess, was reviled as the world’s worst female serial killer and also known as “the Blood Countess”. Tosca Lee gives her story a modern twist in “The Progeny”, a fictional story of Emily Jacobs, one of Elizabeth’s descendants, also one of the progeny who has special giftings that the hunters will kill to destroy them all.  Emily erases her memory, reads a note to herself telling her not to find out who she was, and then finds herself drawn back into her previous life by those who are trying to kill her and others like her.

This remarkable story is filled with romance, intrigue, suspense and drama.  Lee takes us from the past to the present at an incredible speed.  Before you know it, you’ve finished the book.  Every page is an adventure, and you will be drawn in to Emily’s situation hoping everything is going to work out and she will remain safe.

This was my first experience reading a Tosca Lee novel, but it definitely won’t be my last.  If you enjoy fiction based on real life mysteries, this will capture your attention.  This is a thick book but a quick read because you won’t want to stop until it’s over.
