In a remote village cut off from the outside world by the dark mountains of Transylvania, the townspeople have come to suspect that supernatural forces must be responsible for the menacing apparitions emanating from the castle looming over them.
But a visiting young count scoffs at their fears. He vows to liberate the villagers by pitting his reason against the forces of superstition – until he sees his dead beloved walking the halls of the castle….

About the Author:

Jules Verne was born in Nantes, France in 1828. One of the most imaginative writers of the nineteenth century, he wrote about air, space, and underwater travel long before such things were possible, leading many today to call him “The Father of Science Fiction.” Among his books are A Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World In Eighty Days, and From the Earth to the Moon. He died in 1905.

Before Bram Stoker s Dracula, Jules Verne, master of science fiction, wrote this eerie tale of the supernatural set in a forgotten valley in the mountains of Transylvania.

A visitor to the region, a young count, vows to liberate the town from this thrall-pitting his reason against the forces of evil and superstition. Yet he too must confront the limits of reason when he views, in the depths of the castle, his long-dead love. This gripping story-a genre-making first-has long been unavailable.
