Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's modern classic, Hotel Transylvania, introduced the Count Saint-Germain and his beloved, Madelaine de Montalia. The Count is one of the most critically acclaimed vampire characters ever created, with dedicated fans who have followed his adventures through more than twenty novels, dozens of short stories, and thousands of years of human history. But of all the women the Count has loved, the most popular is the beautiful, ever-youthful Madelaine.

In Commedia della Morte, Saint-Germain learns that Madelaine—now a vampire—has been arrested by France's Revolutionary Tribunal and is soon to lose her head. Desperate to rescue her, the Count sneaks into France with a troupe of actors led by the glamorous Photine, who soon becomes Saint-Germain's mistress. Photine's teenage son, driven by jealousy and revolutionary fervor, betrays the Count. Now Saint-Germain's life, as well as Madelaine's, hangs in the balance, in this darkly romantic historical vampire novel.

Praise for Commedia della Morte

Praise for Chelsea Quinn Yarbro:

“The characters are richly described, and the way of life for the nobility and court are brought to life… A must-read.”
Booklist on An Embarrassment of Riches

“Yarbro's compelling prose and meticulously researched setting combine effectively for a vivid historical tale."
Publishers Weekly on An Embarrassment of Riches

“You might compare Yarbro’s style to Anne Rice in her vampire tales, where the plot is character driven. The book is intriguing.”
Shelf Life (London, Ontario) on Borne in Blood

“A darkly poetic blend of historical fiction, erotic romance, and literary horror. One of the beauties of Yarbro’s Saint-Germain saga is that every novel is basically a stand-alone story. Those looking for a highly intelligent, tastefully understated erotic horror will be absolutely blown away.”
BookPage on Roman Dusk
