Vlad-The Last Confession by CC Humphreys


N.B Please dont read this post if you want to read/ are reading this book because it contains spoilers!

Hello all,
Just finished the above book and was wondering if anyone else has read it and what you thought. I thought it was brilliant and portrayed Vlad just as I had imagined him, though I felt it strayed a little away from fact sometimes.
What I was hoping someone could tell me is whether there is any truth behind the ending? Although I realise that the canon death of Vlad takes place in 1476, the book goes along the lines that it was Vlads son that was killed and Vlad allowed this to happen so that he could stop having to play the Danse Macabre as he says and have a life he could control. I am sure that I read this theory or rumour somewhere else before. Is there really an accredited theory that suggests that perhaps Vlad was not killed in 1476 and that it was someone else who was just mistaken for him, and that Vlad fled and lived a life in obscurity? Or did the author just make it up for the sake of a story?
