Through in (almost) one sitting - loved it and enjoyed learning about alot of lost (almost) folklore of Europe.

Have to admitt I knew some of it through it being used in Fantasy work (mainly the Mercedes Lackey Godmother series).

Mind you, there is a mistake on the bottom of page 101.

There is description of Old Count de Magpyr ("Old Red Eyes") - "a bald head, two teeth like needles, two ears like batwings, etc." - but this is, actually, the description of Vlad´s grandfather Magyrato.

About halfway through it.

It started off well, but it seems half the book is devoted to The Witches of Lancre and as such, i haven't picked it up for over 2 weeks.
