Does the legendary vampire prince, thought to be destroyed, remain un-dead?

It is 1912, twenty-five years after Dracula "crumbled into dust." Vampire-hunter Dr. Van Helsing's protégé, Dr. Jack Seward, is now a disgraced morphine addict who's convinced that Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a murderous, ravenhaired beauty born in 1560, still walks the earth. Meanwhile, the intelligent and capable Mina, wife of Jonathan Harker, has her own concerns: her son Quincey has finally learned his parents' terrible secrets, but not soon enough to prevent Jonathan's brutal murder in Piccadilly Circus.

Someone is stalking the band of heroes who defeated Dracula. Could it be that Dracula somehow survived their attack and is seeking revenge? Could it be that love never dies?

Based on Bram Stoker's own handwritten notes for characters and plot threads, this is the bone-chilling sequel to the timeless classic Dracula .

When I first saw this book on the shelf I thought it a fool's errand. How could anyone - related or not - think that they could improve upon Bram's original classic? But I'm delighted to say that I was wrong. Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt expertly crafted a modern story that maintains the feel of the period in which the original was written. A terrific read and a marvelous accomplishment for these authors.

Great book couldn't put it down and it had me on the edge of my seat more than half way through. I love how the original characters were brought back and their back stories were told. The two twists were perfect and unexpected. Dracula fans old and new will love it.
