Book Blurb: A DYING MAN’S GREATEST TREASURE…
Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer’s field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull’s razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.
OPENS THE DOOR TO AN ANCIENT EVIL...
A rural hospital. A slow night in the ER. Until Moorecook arrives strapped to a gurney, where he promptly codes and dies.
WHERE DEATH IS JUST THE BEGINNING.
Four well-known horror authors pool their penchants for scares and thrills, and tackle one of the greatest of all legends, with each writer creating a unique character and following them through a vampire outbreak in a secluded hospital.
The goal was simple: write the most intense novel they possibly could.
Which they did.
A Word of Warning:
Within these pages, you will find no black capes, no satin-lined coffins, no brooding heartthrobs who want to talk about your feelings. Forget sunlight and stakes. Throw out your garlic and your crosses. This is the Anti-TWILIGHT.
Review: DRACULAS is a collaboration of four great horror writers Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson. Despite having four authors, this horror novel blends seamlessly from scene to scene, point of view to point of view. The pacing speeds along from the very first bite. DRACULAS is everything a vampire novel should be. Gore, horror, humor, and fantastic wit fill the pages. Benny the Clown gives Stephen King's Pennywise from IT a run for his money. The twist at the end leads to the possibilities for a sequel, which I can't wait to read! The novel had a very horror movie feel to it, and I would be first in line to see it, if it ever was made into a movie. If you're looking for good horror or something scary for Halloween, DRACULAS is the book for you.
Oh boy, the anti Twilight!
It was a fun, gory read. :D
