I received this book as a gift as its known what a fan I am of the original classic tale.Some people expressed disappointment with the sequel but I really enjoyed the story.It has the original characters from Dracula and basically explains where they are living and how they have turned out since the end of Bram Stokers book.There is also a short history of the Stoker family which is almost as interesting as the story itself!Without giving anything away the events that take place at times are quite disturbing and I feel the ending was perhaps left open for a further book to be written.Dacre Stoker did much research and has written a good novel with more than a passing nod to Bram and the great gift that was the Dracula story.

This book is based on Bram Stoker's own notes and is an authorised sequel. The author Dacre Stoker is a direct descendant of Bram Stoker and is a well known Dracula historian. I bought it in Asda for £3.99 but the RRP is £7.99. Main Characters Dr Jack Seward - from the original story. He is now a morphine addict living in a stale room in Paris. All his friends think he has gone mad as he has become obsessed with hunting vampires including Countess Bathory. He is still grieving over the loss of his love, Lucy (Arthur Holmwood's fiancée as she chose him over Jack), who had to be staked in the original Dracula story. Quincey Harker - ...
