Hôtel Transylvania was probably a cutting edge book of its time (the late 1970s), but today it feels a little old fashioned. However, I can certainly see its place in the process of getting to the abundant vampire fiction that we have today.Bram Stoker’s Dracula merely hinted at the sexual nature of vampires. The vampire snuck in at night like a clandestine lover and had to get up close and personal to bite his victim. Blood transfer is pretty intimate after all. A couple of years before Hôt [...]

This is the first book about the ancient, noble, lonely vampire Saint-Germain, but I'm glad it wasn't the first one I read because I might not have have continued with the series. It's not terrible, but the two later books I've already read were better than this one.For one thing, the plot is Saint-Germain vs. Satan worshippers in 18th century France, and I just don't buy the motivation of Satan worshippers. Why would a bunch of French nobleman spend their time horrifically sacrificing virgins? [...]

I wanted to like this, but no. For a book with a sympathetic vampire,character (which I generally find lame), the idea wasn't bad: a vampire who could use a crucifix against his enemies.The pacing I found too slow and the characters too similar--everyone melodramatic and vain, in complete denial of the Satanists among them, who themselves were ignorant of vampirism. I had trouble caring about various characters who were too stupid to live, and it seemed as though many elements of the plot were n [...]

Si no estoy mal informada, este es el primer libro de Chelsea Quinn Yarbro que llega a España. Le ha costado, puesto que está escrito en 1978, aunque tengo que reconocer que el paso del tiempo no le ha afectado. Alucinada me quedé cuando buscando información sobre la novela y sus continuaciones vi que la serie constaba de nada menos que de 23 libros, más otros dedicados a algunos de los personajes que van apareciendo, por ejemplo, Madelaine es protagonista de dos títulos de una serie anexa [...]

Actual Publication Date: 1978#1 Count St. Germain Historical Vampire seriesA truly memorable read from 2000 - one of my favorite books.Count St. Germain is a very old vampire, a good vampire. Hotel Transylvania was a stunning eye opener for me in terms of how truly & deeply satisfying a detailed historical book can be.I've read several more since HT (MUST find Path of the Eclipse in my TBR!). CQY is a master at meticulously detailing the history of the various time periods. In each book, St. [...]

wellI had heard about Chelsea Quinn Yarbo for many, many moons. I found this one (and the next) at a used book store and jumped on it. it had been spoken of very highly. sorry everyone, but I'll stick with the beloved Mrs. Rice. St. Germain sure makes a big fuss about his clothes! I know this was published a long time ago and it probably was new then but I felt like I'd read/seen this all before. i'll read the next one then we'll see

This is the first Count book and here, the Count seems happier than in the other novels. While I find this in some ways the weakest of the books, it foreshadows Yarbro's style in the later books. The attention to historical detail is here (love the debate between the alchemists and Satanists), well drawn minor characters abound (Hercule is one of my favorite characters), and good characterization of the leads. There are some drawbacks, the bad guys never seem convincing, for instance. For me, th [...]

The first book in a historical fantasy series about the very old vampire who is currently called the Comte de Saint-Germaine. The first book is set in the year 1745 and in Paris.Comte de Saint-Germaine is a mysterious man who has recently taken his place among the Parisian nobles. Some think that he’s a fraud but others, particularly the women, are charmed. He seems to be interested in them as people, and not just to get (sexual) favors, and he keeps the confidences he’s told.In a sense, tho [...]

At the beginning I did not like it at all; the writing-skills were indifferent, the story itself was not intriguing nor interesting, the characters were quite vain. The reason why I read a lot of vampire books is that besides being a fascinating myth; I really enjoy reading the different kinds of perspectives on vampire-ism. The book by Yarbro, actually, contains a separate segment at the end of the book about the different aspects of vampire-ism depending on culture and religion, which is exact [...]

Out of all the current rage in "vampire" books, This is truly leagues above the crowd. Ms. Yarbro's books are always meticulously researched. The Comte St. Germain WAS an actual historical personage. She takes this person, around whom many, many stories circulated, and turns him into a vampire (albeit an extremely courteous one!)Her books started out as epistolary novels, but have over time come to evolve into more. The Comte and his faithful ghoul, Roger, travel extensively throughout the world [...]

I had written down the title of a book, and when I looked it up I discovered it was part of a series. Further research led me to the author's website, where I discovered there are over 20 books in the Saint-Germain series, each taking place in a historical time period or setting that I would enjoy reading. Being the nerd I am, I had to start at the beginning, and Hotel Transylvania is the first book in the series. This story takes place in the fall of 1743 in Paris, France. All of the characters [...]

Comte Saint Germain is an elegant,charismatic and mysterious foreigner, in mid-18th century Paris.Saint Germain is one of the million names he has acquired throughout his existence, which basically counts back to the beginning of time.He is, of course, a vampire.However, he's unlike any vampire I have ever read.What came as a complete surprise to me, is his character.He is good.He is THE hero.He is there to save the damsel in distress because he feels it's his obligation, as a noble and gallant [...]

Hotel Transilvania inaugura la saga di Saint Germain, che in questa serie è questo vampiro buono che vive da migliaia di anni.Non è stato il fatto che sia stato inserito un vampiro buono a deludermi, anzi, perchè ovviamente come idea ci può stare, ma è stato tutto il contorno. Partiamo col dire che è ripetitivo nel descrivere il protagonista, dipinto sempre come basso, con mani piccole (quindi non un Adone) e soprattutto la descrizione di ciò che indossa ogni giorno di ogni anno è troppo [...]

Historical fiction plus vampires that don't sparkle, what's not to like? Satanic cults with villains that wouldn't make a muppet cringeokay that's less appealing. Bland heroines that are special because they are described as thus. you're losing me. Long ass aristocratic names and supposed court "intrigue"d I'm gone. So terrible, and my reprint edition seriously has a typo on every page.

3.5 stars.I just finished this book and am only going to put a few quick things down for now while I let my thoughts simmer a bit. I enjoyed this book but it was not as enthralling as I had hoped. I was a bit disappointed that the lore for these vampires completely sublimates lust into the bite, in fact it's not even the bite but the act of sharing the blood. The author's prose tries to elevate the experience to a spiritual event but instead calls attention to the lack of candor used in its desc [...]

Hotel Transylvania features a non-sparkly vampire named St Germain. He has been a vampire so long he has forgotten when he became one. With a lifespan measured in the thousands of years, there are a lot of stories to tell about this character, and indeed there are now twenty seven books in the series. Hotel Transylvania is the first-it takes place in the 1790's and lets us learn a little about what type of vampire and person St Germain is. The writing is descriptive and baroque and a lot of fun [...]

I thought this one was pretty good. Saint Germain manages to teeter the line between being a fleshed out character and an emo Ann Rice vampire. I liked that the enemies were Satanists--it contrasted nicely with the perception of vampires as evil. If you don't go into this expecting high art, you'll be pleased by a fun story. The writing is choppy at times, POV leaps from one character to the next, but nothing that compromises the fun of the book.I have to say, though, and this doesn't impact my [...]

In the historical fiction of Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, comes the first of her St. Germain vampire series, in all it's Gothic and well paced storytelling. It centers around the true-life mysterious Germain that actually lived, but Yarbro delves into a "what-if" tale of vampire fiction that has ample bite. Any fan of the coffin dwellers should welcome this work, and appreciate how well researched and written this book is, and understand that she has been copied by lesser authors since the publication [...]

Superb Vampire SeriesSaint Germaine returns to France and reclaims his former residence, the Hotel Transylvania. This is book one in what looks like a superb vampire series and I am looking forward to reading the rest. The historical research and the style of writing are most faithful to the period of Louis xv and the action takes place in 1743. The characters display the thoughts and sentiments of this period, and the romance is done likewise. I loved the descriptions of the clothes and the ver [...]

The Comte St Germain novels by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro are ranked as some of the best vampire/horror/historical fiction in the world. There's a good reason for that. The biggest reason is the the Comte himself has become an iconic hero of sorts. His mysterious life has even figured prominently in the Japanese animated series Le Chevalier d'Eon (a series I highly recommend by the way). Yes, he is a vampire, but he tends to behave in a far more civilized fashion than many of the humans surrounding hi [...]

I got tired of this pretty fast. Not enough to keep me really engaged or caring about the main characters. Set in the mid-18thC of Paris & surrounds, Saint-Germain is a vampire with good intentions and ready to fight the truly evil that rears it's ugly head in this novel. He falls for a 19 y/o young woman who longs for learning, travel & adventure versus the married domesticity which is certainly her fate. On the plus side, Yarbo has populated the novel with some historical accuracy whic [...]

Before there was Anne Rice before there was Stephanie Meyer there was Chelsea Quinn Yarbro and her Saint-Germain series. She is a grand master of horror. Read the entire series and you will marvel at the scope of her imagination. I can't praise her enough. I had a chance to meet her once at a Mystery Writers meeting out in San Francisco back in the 1970s. She was our guest speaker and displayed a wealth of knowledge that makes her books so enjoyable. To be brutally honest, no one comes close to [...]

I've been meaning to check out this series for some time and finally got around to it. As a young man I read this collection of Yarbro's short stories, Cautionary Tales, and loved it (as creepy as some the best Harlan Ellison stories). While quite different from that book, this was well worth the effort and wish I'd read it sooner. I liked it better Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire, which was solid but I was not really tempted to read any more Anne Rice. I feel quite different about this. [...]

Vaguely disappointing in that I was recommended this book on the basis of its vampiric elements, of which there are few. However, as I read it, I found that was best; the hints of vampiric action enticed me to read an amazing historical fiction novel I would not have otherwise picked up, not being interested in this particular time period.

Another of my all-time favourite books. I'm not hugely into the whole vampire genre, but Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint-Germain books are a lot more than just vampire books, rooted as they are in various different and interesting periods of history. This was actually the first one she wrote (1978).
