Description

A fresh, bold retelling of the classic Stoker dark fairy tale with the pace of the modern thriller, a gripping new novel lavished with incredible concept art from one of Hollywood’s leading Conceptual Designers. 1899 Transylvania bleeds of history and evil. Young Solicitor Jonathan Harker braves ghosts, demons, living skeletons, and armies of rats, as he encounters Dracula. The demonic, shapeshifting vampire imposes his wrath, malice and vengeance upon an England about to enter the Modern Era, crushing everything in his path.

Murder among English tombstones! Daring chases through the infamous underground Paris Ossuaries! A spectacular gladiatorial battle within Rome’s Colosseum during the Witching Hour! All this topped by a fever-pitch chase through Europe to the most terrifying place on earth: Castle Dracula. The Exorcist meets Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, a sprawling adventure with the air of the Victorian Era Ghost story.

Also footnoted throughout with historical facts from the Ancient to the Modern World.
