  2. mi este foarte greu s mi adun g ndurile i s scriu recenzia, s retr iesc din nou povestea i toate emo iile mixte pe care mi le a oferit, de la regret i durere, pentru c niciun personaj nu se afl n siguran sau este complet nevinovat, la team i nelini te, pentru c am tr it timp de c teva ore ntr un castel b ntuit, n care nu tiam n cine s am ncredere, dac voi primi toate r spunsurile de care am nevoie la final sau urma s fiu l sat n ne tiin , cu un mister rezolvat i alte secrete de descoperit singur [...]

  3. First read Sep 2011.A practical and theoretical guide on how to write a professional Romanian gothic horror Influenced perhaps by Poe, M Shelley and Walpole and even De Sade and containing a strong epic doom and gothic metal subcurrent MDB, Theater of Tragedy, Lacrimas Profundere and even HIM , a good knowledge of magick and esoteric practices a bit of Meyrink also , Craznic s novel deserves to be translated in English, its witty and dark effects on the readers being mesmerizing I would have pub [...]

  4. A very good bookI love it although in Romania I have not seen good books in a whilewhat i can say is congrats to the author and we are waiting from him

  5. A fost o poveste intriganta, plina de suspans Modul in care eu, ca cititor, am privit povestea a fost unul destul de obiectiv, mai mult fiind curioasa si fascinata, decat ingrozita sau speriata de ceea ce avea sa urmeze Personajele sunt foarte frumos construite, preferatul meu fiind Vincennes M a impresionat si Postfata scrisa de insusi autorul romanului, unde am descoperit ca ma incadrez in prima categorie de cititori carora le este adresata cartea, adica acei oameni ,,care nu considera ca toat [...]

  6. Poate v ntreba i ce ascunde titlul Nu ascunde Seduce, spune arat E nceputul i finalul pove tii Chiar i atunci c nd ntorci ultima pagin , dup ce ne lu m r mas bun de la personaje, r m ne co marul R m ne n r nile personajelor, sigur, dar r m ne i cu cititorul Cum am mai spus, eu am citit romanul mai mult noaptea Atmosfera nu are mult de suferit dac te la i r pit de ac iune ziua, dar noaptea are un farmec aparte Atunci po i intra cu adev rat n pielea personajelor Sau po i p i al turi de ele, cum do [...]

  7. Femei frumoase, b rba i de vaz i multe secrete, nt mpl ri care sfideaz ra iunea, acuza ii, contradic ii i o boal suspect , magie, mituri i religie Toate acestea sunt elemente pe care Oliviu Cr znic le mplete te n romanul s u gothic Putea s ias o poveste banal despre vampiri, dar a ie it mai mult O carte de care era nevoie, pe o pia saturat de pove ti siropoase cu vampiri, care s au ndep rtat mult prea mult de origine, transform nd ntunericul n ceva atr g tor.Recenzia mea completa o puteti citi a [...]

  8. Pot sa zic ca romanul m a prins Ce i drept am ramas si eu in Castel pana la final Din acest motiv acord nota 4 pentru roman si o nota de 3 pentru postfata acestuia De ce Pentru ca mai exista si alte cronici in afara de cele rusesti si germane Atat autorul cat si cei ce au citit cartea si postfata stiu exact la ce personaj ma refer Deoarece sistemul de notare nu permite virgule sau jumatati, ofer cu indulgenta 4, pentru un roman de debut.

  9. Now that was brilliant Dark and really scary, yet beautiful And quite sad Anyway, a must read You should read it, especially now that Halloween is almost here

  10. I loved the way this book deals with the idea of Evil We all know that Good and Evil exists, but they are generally abstract concepts This book reminds us that Evil is part of our lives and we should never forget this thing, because it rushes in our lives in an instant and when we expect it less Oliviu Craznic s story deals with the uglyest face of Evil the Devil itself I chose itself because I m not sure about the Devil s nature male or female D, on the other hand, it may be both, I guess D Her [...]

  13. There aren t many Romanian horror writers There never have been It s not like there wasn t a fertile field there because the local folklore tells a different story But lately, the social and political realities haven t give it much opportunity.And then, there is Oliviu Craznic A young writer who took it upon himself to change the face of Romanian horror forever.His first novel, and at the end there still was the Nightmare , a genuine gothic macabre, takes place in a late medieval France with an [...]

  14. The first thing that I learn about myself after I finish this book is never be a cop You re not good at it Now, what I have to say about this novel I was surprize by the writing style, I don t know why but I ve this classic vibe every time I open the book to read There where descriptions and complexe characters, that I enjoyed This book shows France in the medieval era when the Inquisition tried to get rid of the evil hauting the population, we don t have a specific year of time period It was an [...]

  15. Citind elucubratiile din profilul autorului de pe GR Lupeni, ziua mortilor, ce inseamna craznic pornisem deja cu ideea ca va fi o carte proasta, ceea ce s a dovedit, in mare parte, fals Cartea este destul de buna Autorul are talent de povestitor Se cam lungeste, dar e un roman de debut Nu mi a placut ca a ales sa nu localizeze temporal actiunea, creand astfel un talmes balmes medievalo iluminist In schimb, este prima data cand dau peste o carte cu poza muzei autorului pe contracoperta.O carte bu [...]

  16. This was the most wonderful surprise this year, a dark romantic story on my very taste I loved the myths in this book, the sense of fear, the twists and turns, the action, the tragic vampirism, the tribulations of Arthur and Adriana, and all I also loved the Inquisitor, he was very determined SPOILER The dinner scene with the full moon rising and the killing at the dinner table was absolute tremendous Worth re reading I am proud a Romanian wrote that Well done, OC We are waiting for the next boo [...]

  17. Absolutely gorgeous, especially the dark romantic atmosphere and the way author uses character s feeling to change their faith I loved the way the weak, ruined Arthur became the tragic, deterined hero inspired by his love and lust for Adrianne, the way Chalais used his own vanity, ego and arrogance in a positive way, and the slow descent of the perfect Vincennes, once he decided not to trust his own heart towards Josephine A true suspansful gothic love story, spiced with twists and shock.

  18. Ce ncepe prost o nunt la un castel damnat cu ni te invita i plini de p cate se termina R u Dac ar fi ecranizat, romanul ar lua forma unui a a zis claustrophobic thriller , genul de film n care ac iunea se desf oar ntr o cas , ntr o camer , ntr un avion etc De asta dat avem de a face cu Castelul Ultimelor Turnuri, locul unde personajele iau via , ca mai apoi s mai bine afla i din paginile c r ii

  19. Excellent vampire story, even better than Anne Rice Lots of twists, shocks, suspense and even romance Great job

  20. Recenzie initial postat pe blogul meu justfantasybooksadis Povestea incepe cand protagonistul cartii, Arthur de Seragens, este invitat la nunta marchizei Josephine Alaturi de curajosul si inteligentul lui prieten din copilarie, Raoul de Vincennes acesta se indreapta spre Castelul Ultimelor Turnuri Insa curand afla nimic nu e ceea ce pare si nu a fost chemat acolo pentru a bea vin si pentru a sarbatori imediat dupa nunta, oamenii incep sa se imbolnaveasca Le apar umflaturi mari pe tot corpul si l [...]

  21. Destul de multa lume se plange ca, in ultimii ani, vampirii, varcolacii si toate celelate creaturi mitice rele au fost transformate in eroi, pirezandu se esenta lor faptul ca sunt rele Oliviu Craznic a luat problema in maini si a scris o carte in care a respectat izvoarele medievale si in care fiecare creatura a noptii e cu adevarat un produs al Raului La polul opus, respectand in continuare atmosfera medievala, se afla Religia, Biserica, Dumnezeu, care insa are putine sanse de izbanda.Si asta e [...]

  22. The haunting settings, the bleak atmosphere, the strong characters remember only Adriana or the duke of Chalais , the terror around each corner of the dark Last Towers Castle, but, most of all, the tragedy, the mystery and the unexpected, are placing this book on the must read shelf for anyone who s into Gothic, Vampires, Werewolves or Fantasy Also, the Modern Romanticism of Oliviu s wonderful tale reminds me rather of Lord Byron than of Mircea Eliade, rather of X Files than of True Blood, and I [...]

  25. An interesting attempt at a modern Gothic novel A disparate group of people is invited to the wedding of a noblewoman who is the subject of much scandalous gossip The guests include, strangely, the chief law enforcement officer of the area, the haughty duke who reigns over the region, and a fearsome leader of the Catholic Inquisition Why would anyone want a torturing inquisitor at their wedding Meanwhile, the groom has apparently invited not a single guest, aside from a baron he met at a pub on [...]

  28. I feel I had to come back to this book and explain why I didn t give it a 5 stars reviewFirst of all, after I read about the book some time back I searched for it for some time, as I don t live in Romania any First, I asked my friends to look for it, they didn t find the bookBig disappointment Then, luckily we went to Romania in the summer of 2012 and after looking in every damned bookshop in Cluj, I was able to buy the much sought after book I love Gothic literature and vampires and scary thin [...]
