Rogue Angel
53 : Bathed in Blood

by Alex Archer
Jul 22, 2015
6 Hours
Ages 13+
The quest for youth only leads to death…

The Blood Countess—Elizabeth Bathory, a true monster of history—is one of the most infamous serial killers. Said to have murdered 650 young women for their blood, she believed bathing in it would preserve her vitality and beauty. It's a story that has always fascinated archaeologist and TV host Annja Creed. Something so fantastic could only be a story. So what is Annja to make of the girl she finds dying on the side of the road…from blood loss?

There's something eerie in this small Slovakian town, where rumors of vampirism hang unspoken in the air. Yet, out of fear, the locals say nothing. Shut out by the police, Annja only digs deeper into the strange death, uncovering troubling scraps of evidence—and cover-ups. Her one lead is an enigmatic retired police officer who has been investigating the disappearance of more than twenty women. All of them young. All of them beautiful.

The only way Annja can see to uncover the truth is by becoming the Blood Countess's next victim….

Murder by Victoria (Posted on 8/16/2018)
A Really Good Anja Creed. Definable worth a listen, her archaeology exploration turns into an unexpected twist with an OMB ending. As always perfect narration, quality production and if you area fan of the series don't miss this one.
Bathed in Blood by Bonnie (Posted on 7/27/2018)
Another great story. Annja makes a few novice mistakes that she shouldn't have made since she has been having these adventures. I love vampire stories and this is a great play on the legend.

I enjoyed this book. A good play on the Countess of Bathory history.

Can't wait for the new ones to come out
Mildly Disappointing by Brandon (Posted on 6/8/2017)
I have a large collection of Rogue Angel titles and this was definitely not a favorite. I agree with Raphael that while this was good, it wasn't great. It is my understanding that the author, Alex Archer, is actually several people. Whomever wrote this was not the best of the bunch. Some of the phrasing was clumsy and exhibited poor grammar. A few small aspects of the story were just uninspired to me. It definitely left me mildly disappointed.
The GA production was fantastic. The voice acting, effects and music were all top notch. It was just the story that I found weak.

I've come to expect more from these books. They've always had good stories but it was the details that made them good to me. This one was lacking in that the story was good it could've been done better.
Suspenseful and entertaining! by Amy (Posted on 5/21/2016)
Loved listening to this one! The storyline was very interesting and it was a good mix of history with a modern fictional twist to the Countess. If you love more gore than is usual for this series, this does the job.
Highly recommend, even with more gore.
The Best Yet!!!! by Carlton (Posted on 5/3/2016)
This is the best one I've heard in a really long time. The story became better when I researched it and found out that the Blood Countess was actually a real story. Very good!!!
excellent as always by Joe (Posted on 8/12/2015)
great story. well done. everything daniel said in his previous review is correct, including the hiccup. I was traveling along the highway when that happened and I was like ... what?

Tense Rouge Angel Adventure! by Joseph (Posted on 8/9/2015)
Just finished listening to "Rogue Angel #53 - Bathed In Blood" released by Graphic Audio.
As much as Mom, Dad, and I have always enjoyed listening to the "Rouge Angel" series, I must confess that this latest adventure of Annja Creed was perhaps her most creepiest and disturbing one to date and I had to pause it a few times to get over the willies - MAJOR SPOILER ALERT HERE - because of the blood harvesting hospital Annja finds herself in. I'm not a fan of hospitals and as my friends know, I did have myself discharged against doctor's advice when I was having Stroke #2.
Annja is in Slovakia, more precisely at the site of Čachtice Castle in Cachtice. She is there on a lark, filming an episode on for Chasing History's Monsters on the Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed - also known as the Blood Countess - one of history's most prolific female serial killers to date.
After a first day of shooting comes to an end, Annja is flagged down by a frightened young woman who has stumbled upon the body of a nude woman in a ravine. Annja repels down the ravine and the woman, who is barely alive, whispers two words - "blood countess" - which is a jarring jolt to Annja.
Annja learns that over thirty women have turned up missing and found dead in a two year period. She investigates and soon becomes a target of unknown assailants who are trying to warn her off or kill her.
Annja makes quite a few rookie mistakes in this adventure and nearly ends up being killed as a result
Another Thrilling Rouge Angel Adventure, but a disturbing one for those who are squeamish about medical settings.
Highly Recommended!
Five Stars!

Suspense and Blood curdling thrills by Daniel (Posted on 8/7/2015)
One of my new favorites, great production and great story. This is one had me angry and excited. It has a mixed of a suspense thriller with a kind of murder mystery feel.

A good villain, one that hasn't been used in awhile (if my memory is right) and not the usual mobster/crime lord with money that happens to have an interest in the same artifact or myth as Annja. Not a lot from Rue or Garin in the actual story not till the end anyway. I love the haggling between Annja and Garin and the talk with Doug, I haven't heard one with Doug in awhile and I love when she has to talk the puppy down.

I do miss the old format of the intro of "A movie in your mind---(the history/prologue)---Graphic audio presents" I hope they bring that intro style back in the next one. Awesome voice acting as always; great sound effects this time, it seemed like a lot more of it was used it really felt like a movie and great background music during many of the scenes and it was beautifully done.

There is a bit of a hiccup, which I thought was both funny and kind of awesome. On Part 4 about 24:30 minutes in our narrator was little fluttered forgot her thought and "Dammit". I don't think that was part of the story
