'If there is one word, which characterizes this guide to Transylvania it has to be 'enthusiasm'. Lucy Mallows' interest dates back to her early childhood when her mother read to her from fairy stories written by Queen Marie of Romania. She first visited Transylvania in 1997 and now, after repeated visits clearly driven by her love and fascination for the place, she has written one of the first guides to Transylvania to be published in English. Her passion for the place shines through the pages of her guide, generating interest and curiosity on the part of the reader'. - The Budapest Times
