Rewriting or referring to classics is always dangerous and if you want to do it about vampires, worst because we all know vamps’ books are trend now. Timothy Baril doesn’t tell a romantic story where the vampire is perfect, sweet, respectful with life and beautiful. No, Tim’s vampires are bloody, violent, secretive, cunning….. His creature, as Le Fanu’s, provokes both love and hate on those who cross her path, and that was a detail that I love the most and reminded me so much of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Used to reading about perfect creatures that don’t want to kill or hurt anybody, Carmilla was a great surprise because this vampire wants to feed and have a partner and she won’t hesitate to get it. She will trick, lie and pretend in order to get what she wants, she has done it in the past and she will keep doing it because it’s her nature.
If you have read Dracula by Bram Stoker, Timothy Baril’s Carmilla will remind you to this amazing classic. If you haven’t, read it, you should. And after doing it, give Baril’s baby a try. I haven’t read Le Fanu’s book – I will for sure – so I can’t compare them but Timothy Baril has rescued those characteristics that both creatures – both Dracula and Carmilla – have in common and have delighted people for decades.
Looking for some romance perfectly mixed with horror? Bored of those perfect vampires who prefer to drink tomato sauce than blood because they are good and nice? Do you fancy some lesbian romance with a twist? Then Carmilla: A prelude to Dracula by Timothy Baril is your book.
