The Historian

by Elizabeth Kostava

I agree with Nicky74, who recommended this book to me, that it is an excellent story but a little too long.  But at least I am used to vampire books being slow paced (Anne Rice is a good example), and the extra length is used nicely to illustrate the little details of a place or a person; things that add color to the tale rather than just padding the book, and they were never excessive (though a little here and there do add up..)  

The storyteller is skilled at nestling one tale in another, layering them through time and space.  My only disappointment is that the ending seems somewhat anticlimatic after all the build-up.
