I was really looking forward to this book, having enjoyed "The Angry Angel" quite a bit. However, this second volume in the series defintely lags behind Yarbo's initial offering.
She spends the first several chapters telling us in many different ways what we already know: that the heroine, Fenice, is bored and frustrated with her life of Venetian privilege and yearning for adventure on the high seas and elsewhere. Enough, already! Let's cut to the chase! But no - these points are belaboured for a while longer; her disapproving family, her boring fiance, her desire to postpone marriage for as long as possible, etc. etc. etc.
In contrast to "The Angry Angel," for most of this book Dracula is basically absent. There seems to be little real connection between him and Fenice, and little reason for one. Unlike Kelene who was trapped in a situation of dire poverty and physical danger, Fenice is in the lap of luxury. How many people in real life are desperate to flee lives of privilege for the squalor and "adventure" of street-life? This motivation is not realistic.
Finally over halfway through the book things begin to pick up, but by this time finishing the book is an act of will. My ennui was completed by the discovery that Kelene, the heroine of the first novel, has somehow morphed from a wise-beyond-her-years, interesting teenager to a spoiled, petulant brat. What?!
Let's hope the heroine of book 3, whoever she might be, realizes there's more than enough of Dracula to go around.

Fenice is the second virgin that Dracula decides to seduce and bring back to his castle for companionship or maybe for the amusement that the rivalry between her and the first virgin Kelene produces. Fenice having been brought up as a wealthy young maid has had a different background than Kelene, but after the initial battles for Draculas favor, Kelene uses her superior mind to form a truce with Kelene. Very good book. Can't wait for number three. Despite the need for feeding, for blood, a true rivalry and believable relationships ring true.

By 1572 in Venice, wealthy Fenice Zucchar is weary of her life in a gilded cage. She yearns for excitement and will do anything to escape the ennui of her existence. Fenice stows on board a ship, but is soon caught. The noblewoman is ignominiously dumped in Varna.
The residents of Varna trust no one, especially strangers. Rumors abound that a demon has surfaced, drinking the blood of his victims every night. Dracula sees Fenice as his latest concubine. He seduces her with a chance for the unfettered freedom she covets. Unable to resist his call, Fenice follows Varna back to his castle. However, already residing there is a dangerous female, who could be Fenice's sister of the night or her killer.
THE SOUL OF AN ANGEL, the second novel in Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's trilogy on Count Dracula's three brides, is a superb look into the secondary characters from Stoker's classic. The story line is weird, but intriguing as Fenice fights for more than just survival. She battles to gain a place in Dracula's heart. The relationships between the three protagonists who make up this supernatural triangle seem so real that readers will feel it must be a genuine account in spite of the blood-sucking regimen. After this tasty morsel and the previous tale (THE ANGRY ANGEL), readers will impatiently wait for the release of the third bride's tale.

The second one in the trilogy. I loved it, drank the words like wine, but I have to admit, I liked the first one better. "The Angry Angel" had a level of fierceful "strenght" that this book does not reach. The detailed descriptions are heavenly, while reading I was there... Nothing but the best for someone who can put stories like these on paper.. Anxiously looking forward to the third book.. M.

I wonder when the third book will be out?? Does anyone know? I thought the first book was more true to the Dracula vibe but I did like the end of the second one. It was not as much a vampire story as the first for most of the book until the end. I am hooked though and hope a third is going to happen!
