About the Author
Lana Popovic is the author of Blood Countess, Wicked Like a Wildfire, and Fierce Like a Firestorm. Born in Serbia, she lived in Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania before moving to the United States, where she studied psychology and literature at Yale University, law at Boston University, and publishing and writing at Emerson College.
"Popovic balances lush, romantic language with gruesome imagery in this tale of innocence lost.Readers will likely be inspired to do actual research into Lady Bathory’s murderous misdeeds."
"Popovic also touches on how a patriarchal society can drive women to extremes without letting the truly terrifying Bathory, or Anna, off the hook for their own actions. . . A lush and bloody historical thriller."
