Book Review: "The Progeny" by Tosca Lee

I DEVOURED Tosca Lee's newest novel The Progeny: A Novel (Descendants of the House of Bathory)  (Howard Books) in just about 2 days!  This novel is fast paced and completely riveting. 

Emily pays to have her mind erased to forget her past and ends up in the run of her life to save herself.  With her memory gone she does not know who to trust.  She however does find out that she is a descendent of the worlds most notorious female serial killer, and because of her blood she is now being hunted.  The action does not stop as she traverses the world to unravel the secret she has hidden from even herself.  The information she held had to be of major importance if she was willing to erase everything she knew from her memory for it.

I have not read a book that has sparked my imagination like this one has in quite some time.  Tosca Lee is a brilliant storyteller.  I found myself googling Elizabeth Bathory just to try to find out how much of the story was truly imagined.  Lee does a phenomenal job at blurring those lines.  I CANNOT recommend this book enough!  RUN to your local bookstore in May and pick it up; better yet just preorder it now!

A copy of this book was provided to me for review by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
