Read full description of the books:
The famed poet Lord Byron comes to life with incendiary brilliance in this "ingenious and entertaining brew of sensationalism and scholarship" (Sunday Times London), enhanced by vivid period settings that evoke Caleb Carr's The Alienist. Wandering with his friend Hobhouse in Greece, Byron embarks on a life of adventure even his genius could not have forseen--that of the world's most formidable vampire.
