Free Book Friday: Dracula: The Un-Dead

I've got something special for Free Book Friday this week.

The book is DRACULA THE UN-DEAD, and it’s the sequel to Bram Stoker’s original classic DRACULA written by Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, Dacre Stoker and screenwriter Ian Holt

At last--the sequel to Bram Stoker's classic novel Dracula, written by his direct descendant and a Dracula historian

Bram Stoker's Dracula is the prototypical horror novel, an inspiration for the world's seemingly limitless fascination with vampires. Though many have tried to replicate Stoker's horror classic- in books, television shows, and movies-only the 1931 Bela Lugosi film bore the Stoker family's support.

Until now.

Dracula The Un-Dead is a bone-chilling sequel based on Bram Stoker's own handwritten notes for characters and plot threads excised from the original edition.

Dracula The Un-Dead begins in 1912, twenty-five years after Dracula "crumbled into dust." Van Helsing's protégé, Dr. Jack Seward, is now a disgraced morphine addict obsessed with stamping out evil across Europe. Meanwhile, an unknowing Quincey Harker, the grown son of Jonathan and Mina, leaves law school for the London stage, only to stumble upon the troubled production of "Dracula," directed and produced by Bram Stoker himself.

The play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents' terrible secrets, but before he can confront them he experiences evil in a way he had never imagined. One by one, the band of heroes that defeated Dracula a quarter-century ago is being hunted down. Could it be that Dracula somehow survived their attack and is seeking revenge? Or is their another force at work whose relentless purpose is to destroy anything and anyone associated with Dracula?

Dracula The Un-Dead is deeply researched, rich in character, thrills and scares, and lovingly crafted as both an extension and celebration of one of the most classic popular novels in literature.

I cannot wait for this book to be released! I have been anxiously awaiting this for what seems like forever. So interested in seeing where Bram might have taken these characters- does it match what I have always thought in my mind? So cool.

This sequel has an interesting premise. By using the notes from the original author, it in my opinion, will insure that the authors voice will be authentic.

I have always loved Dracula and I am now even more mesmerized by today's versions of vampires. Their sexuality has always intriqued me. Your book looks like it would be one I would devour time and time again.
