Publisher's Summary

What if Dracula were brought back to life to fight the Nazis?
Ravaged by the Nazi Secret Service during World War II, Romanian resistance forces turn to one of their leaders, Professor Van Helsing, for any way out. To fight these monstrous forces, Van Helsing raises a legendary monster from centuries of slumber - Prince Dracula himself.
Once he was the ruler of Transylvania. Prince Dracula, is, above all else, a patriot. He proves more than willing to once again drive out his country's invaders. Upshot: No one minds if he drinks all the German blood he desires.
In Berlin, when Hitler hears about the many defeats his forces are suffering at the hands of an apparent true vampire, he is seduced by the possibility of becoming immortal. Thus two forces are set upon a collision course, the ultimate confrontation: superpower against superpower.

Refreshingly New Tale of Dracula

Dracula has always been a favorite of mine. I read the original once every couple of years. And as a pop culture icon, he's been portrayed as both a hero and a villain, but even as a villain, we love to root for him. In Dracula vs Hitler, Dracula becomes the perfect anti-hero, the reluctant hero who gains redemption through his positive deeds. The story was masterfully written and the narrator played through the assorted accents and character changes flawlessly. It ended in such a way that could easily transition into a series, while concluding the story if nothing more is to come of it (which I hope isn't true). I'll definitely look into more selections from both Patrick Sheane Duncan and Mathew Brenher. Well done.

Who are the real monsters here?

What made the experience of listening to Dracula vs. Hitler the most enjoyable?

The performance was quite engaging and worked well with this story.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Strangely, Dracula himself. You find yourself cheering on a character that has ever been the villain. Here he is shown to be a more reasonable being of honor and some self control.


What about Matthew Brenher’s performance did you like?

The voices fit the characters perfectly. Well done.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, revulsion. You quickly realize that the idea of a vampire and all that it brings with it is nothing compared to the horrors that men do to one another. Perhaps making that point more striking is the fact that the Nazi's in the novel were not portrayed doing anything worse than they did in real life...and that puts any creature of the night in the category of "not that bad by comparison".


Any additional comments?

This novel is not a fantasy with over the top action and heroics. Instead the author has crafted a World War II espionage novel that happens to have a vampire as a character. Not nearly as florid in its prose as the Dracula novel itself and, in fact, that same novel is referenced several times on how overly melodramatic is was written. I recommend this novel.
