Publisher's Summary

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 novel. Dracula the Un-Dead begins in 1912, 25 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?

What the Critics Say

"Energetically paced and packed with outrageously entertaining action, this supernatural thriller is a well-needed shot of fresh blood for the Dracula mythos." (Publisher's Weekly)

Very let down. I'd like my credit back please.

I actually feel bad about making this review but, this book is so horrible that I feel cheated. I saw it in Barnes and Noble and wanted to buy it but knew that somehow it was going to be in audiobook format. I used a credit to get this book and now, I want it back. There is such a difference between the historical Dracula and the character that "Bram" Stoker created. It seems as if Dacre and Holt took more from Coppola's version than Bram's. I'm really let down by this book. I expected more from a Stoker, but then again, talent doesn't always run in the lineage. This is one book I'd like to erase from my memory.

Dracula Re-Imagined....

First, this is a very entertaining book with a flawless narration by Simon Prebble. I enjoyed it immensely. Less of a sequel and more of a "re-imagining," this novel is built on the premise that Bram Stoker, in his original book, distorted the truth about the ancient vampire's motives and purpose. Prince (not Count) Dracula, it turns out, has been grossly misunderstood. Successful in capturing the mood and tone of the original, "Dracula the Un-Dead" also brings back the first book's principal characters, rejoining their lives 25 years after the events of the previous book. Though the story suffers from a few disturbing inconsistencies and several plot twists and action scenes obviously designed for Hollywood, it is a commendable effort that should please most fans of the original Bram Stoker novel.
