This book is a fusion of my favorite historical fiction writers and fantasy masters. The book starts out in typical historical fashion with Elizabeth gaining the throne and then being told the state secrets which include the fact that she is the *one* that time has designated as *the* vampire hunter with special skills. It only gets better from there. The story becomes a quickly paced thrilled as we watch Elizabeth gain power and ability to hunt vampires.I really enjoy these mash ups, so if you have tried before and didn't like them, you might want to take a chance on this one. I really liked this one better than Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Couldn't you just imagine all historical characters coming together to create a super force of vampire hunters?
