Dracula the Un-Dead

Dracula the Un-Dead   

Dracula the Un-Dead
Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt
Dutton 2009
ISBN 978-0-525-95129-2

     Jonathan and Mina Harker have raised their son Quincey into a fine young man even though their marriage is disintegrating. One bone of contention is the fact that Quincey does not want to follow in his father's footsteps and become a lawyer. Quincey eventually leaves law school to become an actor and becomes involved with a floundering production of Dracula. Dracula is being produced by none other then Bram Stoker. The production puts Quincey into the world of  his parents long ago secrets.
     Twenty-five years have passed since Dracula was murdered. Now, all of the past players are being killed off one by one.Is it possible that Dracula is still alive or is something more sinister at work?
     This phenomenally written work keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is based on Bram Stoker's original notes from his research while writing Dracula. The story is not only frightening; but also full of suspense. If you are a fan of Dracula, be prepared to be taken on a journey you will not soon forget. If you think you know the story of Dracula, think again. This book gives a whole new perspective on what happened. I fell in love from the moment I started reading and could not put it down. My only complaint is how it ended. I feel like I am still hanging out there someplace waiting for another book. My only hope is that this is not the end of the story.
