Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance
Legend, history, and passion collide in this gritty, evocative, and sensual story about history's most notorious price and the woman who paid love's ultimate price. The year is 1464, and young King Matthias controls Hungary, his family, and the fate of the world’s most notorious political prisoner, Prince Vlad Dracula. Ilona Szilágy, the king’s cousin, is young and ambitious. Dracula is determined to marry into the Hunyadi family. It is love at first sight…but the king has other plans. The Impaler Prince, however, never takes no for an answer. This begins Ilona’s journey into the treacherous world of court intrigues, family betrayals, and her husband’s dark desires. Eager to become Vlad’s trusted confidant, Ilona soon discovers that marriage to a man tortured by his past comes with a price. Woven throughout is a peek into the life and times of one of the world’s most enigmatic and maligned rulers…the man before the legend. With Bardot’s decadent period detail and a cast of gritty evocative characters, The Impaler’s Wife offers a fierce yet sensuous glimpse into the violent 15th century.

My Review: 

The Impaler’s Wife is a fabulous historical fiction debut for Autumn Bardot. It is one of those stories that made me want to search online to see if the details were actual historical events or the author’s imagination. Oh my! I was quite fascinated. I would have never thought of reading an enjoyable read involving Vlad the Impaler and his wife. Miss Bardot did an awesome job making it work. Ilona is a great female character. I enjoyed her right from the start. 

The Impaler’s Wife gets five stars from me. I would love to read the next historical fiction release by this author in the future. I would love to know who she would write about next. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
