About this title

Synopsis:

This highly literate vampire novel is based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, but it's far more than a simple retelling of Stoker's tale. The primary narrator is The Count himself, but the :notebooks" and "diaries" of the other characters give the narrative a Kaleidoscope-like quality, revealing one aspect of the story after another. While the horror elements are prominent, psychological elements prevail in this chilling yet fascinating tale. Of particular interest to those familiar with Stoker's novel will be the revelations of what The Count kept in his cellars and why he kept it there.

From Library Journal:

In this murky version of the vampire legend, we are given the "lost" journal of Mircea, older brother of Vlad, who reveals himself as the true count. The undated entries describing his life as one of the undead are interspersed with long quotes from Stoker's classic, Dracula, along with selections attributed to Van Helsing, Seward, Mina, and other Stoker characters. In an attempt to integrate all of this into a cohesive narrative, Lee shuffles characters and motivations and then throws in snippets of spiritualism, religion, and folklore for good measure. The result is a confused and confusing first novel. For a much better version of the "lost, true story" of Dracula based on Stoker's novel, see Jeanne Kalogridis's Covenant with the Vampire (LJ 10/1/94).
