Book Review: New Orleans Vampires, History and Legend by Marita Woywod Crandle

New Orleans Vampires: History and Legend (Haunted America) by [Marita Crandle]


An interesting read. 4 stars.

I was looking for inspiration and decided to read this book based on vampire tales that originated in New Orleans.  I found the stories interesting. I've read quite a few books on vampires, but I'd never heard of these stories about The Casket Girls, Comte De St. Germain, and the Carter Brothers. As I was reading them, I could almost sense the mystery and spookiness of the Quarter. The author's own vampire encounter gave me chills. As an added bonus, there is a bibliography at the end for further reading. Highly recommended for anyone who loves well-researched vampire tales.
