First published in 1897, &quote;The Blood of the Vampire&quote; is a vampire novel by prolific writer Florence Marryat. The story revolves around one Miss Harriet Brandt, the daughter of a mad scientist and a voodoo priestess who leaves her home in Jamaica for the first time to travel to Europe. However, Harriet is not a normal young woman, as everybody who gets close to her becomes ill or even dies. Boasting a sensational plot and utterly bizarre characters, Florence Marryat's Victorian vampire tale constitutes a must-read for fans of the genre. Florence Marryat (1833 - 1899) was a British actress and author. She is remembered for her sensational novels and her relationships with numerous famous spiritual mediums during the 19th century.
