This story really drew me in, it was definitely a page turner. I felt bad for the General about his daughter and I found it exciting how the General had described what had happened to his daughter and how much it paralleled Laura's experience. It makes me wonder though why didn't Laura die? Is it because Carmilla didn't take enough blood which in turn turned Laura into a vampire as well. The General's story was very compelling when he spoke about Mircalla, Countess Karnstein and what supposedly happened to her, when in actually nothing happened to her at all. she still walks around the town and just changes the letters around in her name to "fool" people. I wonder who was Madame la Comtesse, was she a vampire as well? And if she was why was she always disappearing? Why wasn't she feasting on the town's people? I think the interaction between Carmilla and Madame la Comtesse is very odd. The chapter where Carmilla comes and see's the General and how he lunges at her and we get to experience of how strong she really is. I really disliked the conclusion chapter, I felt like at first the chapter wasn't making since and then you come to hear about how the Baron was in love with Mircalla and that he would do anything for her. I think he is possibly hiding her and that he would only give out some information to protect even in the after life. The ending was becoming so involved and then it just dropped off to me. I really think that Laura is a vampire because of the fact that Carmilla comes to her again.
