A couple of notes--I do think the author(s) were predisposed to apologize for the horrendous acts that Vlad committed, and especially by the last few chapters of the book I was hoping for a more unbiased look at the things he did to people. It seemed hard for the writers to consider the vileness of Vlad's acts in and of themselves without excusing them first, but Vlad has taken on, it seems, quite a heroic reputation throughout the Transylvanian region. A Romanian epic, if you will. He is a flawed character who undoubtedly suffered from the non stop violence and treachery in his life. Even his own family he could not trust.
It is both uplifting to see how he fended off such overwhelming forces, and horrific to see what he did to so many of those he perceived as enemies. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
