"Persons of small courage and weak nerves should confine their reading of these gruesome pages strictly to the hours between dawn and sunset." -The Daily Mail, 1897
"Bram Stoker’s 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula, features many of the most powerful tropes in fictional narrative: suspense,love, seduction, heroism, sacrifice, and the burning desire for some form of immortality." -From Grant Horner's Introduction
When the gorgeous Lucy Westenra mysteriously sickens, it’s up to Jonathan Harker and her other friends to figure out what’s preventing her recovery. Unfortunately, they take too long to realize that something dark has crossed the Channel and taken up residence in England. Even with the aid of the erudite Abraham Van Helsing and a number of sharp weapons, it may be too late even to save themselves, much less destroy the monstrous threat.
