Book Description

In Silence Sealed by Kathryn Ptacek first appeared in 1987. It is a brilliant period piece, evoking that brief, shining decade that produced the great Romantics in England. It also produced the Gothic Novel, a precursor to the modern horror novel. Ptacek's lamia sisters are monsters, incredibly sensual monsters who first seduce and then destroy victims. Only this time the men they are after are England's greatest poets — Byron, Shelley and Keats.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Silence Sealed --A Must Read! December 15, 2011
Format:Paperback
"And mighty poets in their misery dead" - Wordsworth

Whether you like poetry or not, you're going to be absolutely mesmerized by the twists and turns of this excellent book. All three of the giants of the romantic era -- Percy Shelley, John Keats, and George Gordon, Lord Byron died young, a fact we accept. But what if they'd all three known the same two women -- the Kristonosos sisters, sensual sirens, capable of driving men mad with desire? What if there were no way of stopping them?

I was extremely impressed with Ms. Ptacek's research on the fashions of the times, as well as depicting the architecture of Italy and Greece. Her descriptions of the sister's dresses are outstanding and her pacing is excellent. You can't put this book down until it's done.

Ptacek is an accomplished writer, and I'm definitely going to seek out more of her novels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly entertaining April 27, 2015

The story-within-a-story structure is not my favorite and the changes in perspective frustrated me.

I liked the use of real historic figures but the characters were not fully developed -- seemed like the author relied on the figures' reputations instead of fleshing them out.

Murdering children is awful. No way to empathize with the lamia characters after those crimes.
