    A Sincere and Heartfelt Thank You to the Authors (Note: the following can be read with or without musical accompaniment) Thank you Mr.Crouch and Mr. Kilborn. Thank you Mr. Strand and Mr. Wilson. Thank you, sirs. Thank you Sooooo Sooooo much. Thank you forthe sweet, swee...

    It reads like a bullet hitting bang on target. No messing around, strip away the usual vampire history or romance this story goes straight to the kill in POV mode chapters are divided by switching through the eyes of the prey and predators. Worst case senario to have is the turned l...

    This review is dedicated to Steven's and Bridget's reviews, the reasons I even heard about this book let alone couldn't wait another second after I got my Kindle to read it. The author, Joe Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn), writes in the introduction to Draculas that this is an attempt to...

    Yowza, wowzers, and woot! woot! This book -- a mad collaboration from four horror gods (small 'g') -- is this cat's meow (or as they say where I come from -- it's all that and a bag of chips). It was going to take a lot for this book to impress me for the simple reason that vampires...

    I didn't find the setup or the ending to be particularly satisfying. And I found some of the banter between characters to be pretty hokey (especially the constant quoting from action movies). Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me say that this is one crazy, action-packed...

    I was recently involved in a heated debate over the merits of this book (see link at bottom of review). Draculas, it is fair to say, is written to a certain formula. And, for me at least, it was a formula that worked well. A simple, but nonetheless effective plot, and paced at b...

    3.5 First, you need to know what to expect from this book. You wouldn't do it justice if you expect a horror monster story. Next, the only reason I'd call it horror is because I am not really sure where else to put it. That, and it does have monsters, blood and death. There are many t...

    If you're looking for literary horror that might send a chill down your spine in between prosaic descriptions of foreboding forests and ominous castles, click the back button on your browser and continue your search elsewhere. But if you're looking for a bloody good time as a bunch of ...

    4.5 stars. I was skeptical that a book written by four different authors telling a single story could be a good, cohesive read but I was wrong. This one was great. I am so glad my friend on Good Reads Stephen recommended it & that I had the sense to trust his excellent taste. Seat ...

    This was a rip roaring, funny gore fest! Draculas was written by four authors: Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Blake Crouch. These are anti-sparkle vampires. All they want is blood and they will even suck their own if nothing else is available. I don't even know what...

    5++ stars A completely different and ingenious take on the vampire novel. 4 amazing authors: J.A. Konrath, Blake Crouch, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn, and Jeff Strand - each creating their own characters and following them through to the end - come together to create an absolutel...

    This book was one hell of a journey, loved all the way though, 5-stars all the way, until the a kind of lackluster ending (view spoiler)[ everything that happened, all the sacrifices made, were completely unnecessary (except for perhaps the 4 saved children who I didn't care about) - s...

    If you're looking for a sexy vampire with any sort of redeeming qualities, you won't find it here. And this book is absolutely not for sensitive or squeamish readers. Draculas is a fast-paced, bloody mess of a story about the original type of bloodthirsty vampires who terrorized humans...

    When I think of horror I think of movies I watched as a kid like The House on the Haunted Hill starring Julie Merriam and The Legend of Hell House starring Roddy McDowell, both movies made me afraid of entering big houses. Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde starring Fredric March made me afraid of...

    Joe Konrath of A Newbie's Guide to Publishing fame posted an offer giving away free ARC's of an upcoming horror eBook he and three other authors wrote in exchange for a review here and on Amazon.com. I've gotten a lot of good info from Joe's blog, so I figured I'd do him a favor, read ...

    Ok, get excited: this book promises a no-bullshit horror gorefest, and that is exactly what it provides. It's a fun, exciting and even disturbing read. I hear you: vampires is done but done to death these days, and a lot of that work is dull. Draculas never sinks to that kind of me...

    There was a war movie in Hindi which lasts a good 3.5 hours. After the first fifteen minutes or so you see a soldier walking down a hillock and a shot is fired by the enemy and from then on until the end of the movie, the shots keep on coming. By the time I came out of the theatre, my ...

    What happens when you take a disgustingly rich old man on death's doorstep with his hands on an artifact of the first vampire in creation? Would you know the answer if I told you that artifact was a skull with fangs intact? No? Really? Ok, I'll tell you! He bites himself with it! Glori...

    Someone should send this book to Guillermo de Toro so he can learn how to write a vampire novel. OK. Snide comment aside, DRACULAS is a can't-put-down, edge-of-your-seat, stomach turning gorefest featuring vampires ransacking a hospital. These are not your normal vamps and none of t...

    Mortimer Moorecook is a billionaire but he is dying of cancer. Willing to lengthen his life, he pays to get a vampire skull that was dug up from the ground in Transylvania known as the "Dracula Skull" and upon receiving it plunges the fanged skull into his neck. Upon arriving to the ho...

    I don't know if it was just that I was tired of Vampire books. Or that I was looking for a new spin or a fresh look. I enjoy reading each of these authors books in the past but this one didn't do anything for me. I see by the reviews that a lot of people really liked this book. I didn...

    Joe asked me last week to look over his new release, and when I agreed, I was given the full copy to peruse. He and I met years ago in an online writing group, and I designed Joe's first web-site. With the horror genre not being my particular favourite in which to write (although ...

    Draculas is not your ordinary tale of a bloodsucker. The Draculas in this novel are nasty and billed as the kind that will crawl into your head and give you nightmares. The novel is a collaboration of four different authors and it really works. One might expect for it to be a hodge pod...

    I read this book straight through in one sitting, until 2 o'clock in the morning. I felt as though if I were to stop for a bit, the effect of unrelenting fear and gore would have been lessened as the story moved forward incredibly fast. Many different characters were introduced at the ...

    A very bloody good time! Want to get in the mood for Halloween? Get this book! DRACULAS is a crazy, no-holds-barred, totally over-the-top good time! It's a horror novel that delivers grotesque terror after grotesque terror at an unrelenting pace, yet it's also got humor galore. It's...

    Draculas by J.A Konrath, Blake Crouch, Jeff Strand and F. Paul Wilson is something to get behind. Courage and innovation like this are in short supply. It's a bold experiment; an ebook by four noteable authors, full of special extras, telling a story from a multitude of perspectives. T...

    Yes, yes, YES!! This is what a vampire story should be! While Bram Stoker wrote, at the core, a love story with DRACULA, I can't help but feel that it has been romanticized (on bad days - bastardized) to a sickening degree. I don't mean to offend, but I absolutely hate the trend of ...

    A very solid 4 stars!! Any fan of horror would enjoy this great, gory, non-glittery vampire tale. Will these four horsemen ever get together and write again? I definitely hope so. I'm sure there is more death, war, pestilence, and famine to be written about. The extras were a nice add...

    A Sincere and Heartfelt Thank You to the Authors (Note: the following can be read with or without musical accompaniment) Thank you Mr.Crouch and Mr. Kilborn. Thank you Mr. Strand and Mr. Wilson. Thank you, sirs. Thank you Sooooo Sooooo much. Thank you forthe sweet, swee...

    It reads like a bullet hitting bang on target. No messing around, strip away the usual vampire history or romance this story goes straight to the kill in POV mode chapters are divided by switching through the eyes of the prey and predators. Worst case senario to have is the turned l...

    This review is dedicated to Steven's and Bridget's reviews, the reasons I even heard about this book let alone couldn't wait another second after I got my Kindle to read it. The author, Joe Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn), writes in the introduction to Draculas that this is an attempt to...

    Yowza, wowzers, and woot! woot! This book -- a mad collaboration from four horror gods (small 'g') -- is this cat's meow (or as they say where I come from -- it's all that and a bag of chips). It was going to take a lot for this book to impress me for the simple reason that vampires...

    I didn't find the setup or the ending to be particularly satisfying. And I found some of the banter between characters to be pretty hokey (especially the constant quoting from action movies). Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me say that this is one crazy, action-packed...

    I was recently involved in a heated debate over the merits of this book (see link at bottom of review). Draculas, it is fair to say, is written to a certain formula. And, for me at least, it was a formula that worked well. A simple, but nonetheless effective plot, and paced at b...

    3.5 First, you need to know what to expect from this book. You wouldn't do it justice if you expect a horror monster story. Next, the only reason I'd call it horror is because I am not really sure where else to put it. That, and it does have monsters, blood and death. There are many t...

    If you're looking for literary horror that might send a chill down your spine in between prosaic descriptions of foreboding forests and ominous castles, click the back button on your browser and continue your search elsewhere. But if you're looking for a bloody good time as a bunch of ...

    4.5 stars. I was skeptical that a book written by four different authors telling a single story could be a good, cohesive read but I was wrong. This one was great. I am so glad my friend on Good Reads Stephen recommended it & that I had the sense to trust his excellent taste. Seat ...

    This was a rip roaring, funny gore fest! Draculas was written by four authors: Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Blake Crouch. These are anti-sparkle vampires. All they want is blood and they will even suck their own if nothing else is available. I don't even know what...

    This book was one hell of a journey, loved all the way though, 5-stars all the way, until the a kind of lackluster ending (view spoiler)[ everything that happened, all the sacrifices made, were completely unnecessary (except for perhaps the 4 saved children who I didn't care about) - s...

    Ok, get excited: this book promises a no-bullshit horror gorefest, and that is exactly what it provides. It's a fun, exciting and even disturbing read. I hear you: vampires is done but done to death these days, and a lot of that work is dull. Draculas never sinks to that kind of me...

    There was a war movie in Hindi which lasts a good 3.5 hours. After the first fifteen minutes or so you see a soldier walking down a hillock and a shot is fired by the enemy and from then on until the end of the movie, the shots keep on coming. By the time I came out of the theatre, my ...

    What happens when you take a disgustingly rich old man on death's doorstep with his hands on an artifact of the first vampire in creation? Would you know the answer if I told you that artifact was a skull with fangs intact? No? Really? Ok, I'll tell you! He bites himself with it! Glori...

    Someone should send this book to Guillermo de Toro so he can learn how to write a vampire novel. OK. Snide comment aside, DRACULAS is a can't-put-down, edge-of-your-seat, stomach turning gorefest featuring vampires ransacking a hospital. These are not your normal vamps and none of t...

    Mortimer Moorecook is a billionaire but he is dying of cancer. Willing to lengthen his life, he pays to get a vampire skull that was dug up from the ground in Transylvania known as the "Dracula Skull" and upon receiving it plunges the fanged skull into his neck. Upon arriving to the ho...

    I don't know if it was just that I was tired of Vampire books. Or that I was looking for a new spin or a fresh look. I enjoy reading each of these authors books in the past but this one didn't do anything for me. I see by the reviews that a lot of people really liked this book. I didn...

    Joe asked me last week to look over his new release, and when I agreed, I was given the full copy to peruse. He and I met years ago in an online writing group, and I designed Joe's first web-site. With the horror genre not being my particular favourite in which to write (although ...

    Draculas is not your ordinary tale of a bloodsucker. The Draculas in this novel are nasty and billed as the kind that will crawl into your head and give you nightmares. The novel is a collaboration of four different authors and it really works. One might expect for it to be a hodge pod...

    I read this book straight through in one sitting, until 2 o'clock in the morning. I felt as though if I were to stop for a bit, the effect of unrelenting fear and gore would have been lessened as the story moved forward incredibly fast. Many different characters were introduced at the ...

    A Sincere and Heartfelt Thank You to the Authors (Note: the following can be read with or without musical accompaniment) Thank you Mr.Crouch and Mr. Kilborn. Thank you Mr. Strand and Mr. Wilson. Thank you, sirs. Thank you Sooooo Sooooo much. Thank you forthe sweet, swee...

    It reads like a bullet hitting bang on target. No messing around, strip away the usual vampire history or romance this story goes straight to the kill in POV mode chapters are divided by switching through the eyes of the prey and predators. Worst case senario to have is the turned l...

    This review is dedicated to Steven's and Bridget's reviews, the reasons I even heard about this book let alone couldn't wait another second after I got my Kindle to read it. The author, Joe Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn), writes in the introduction to Draculas that this is an attempt to...

    Yowza, wowzers, and woot! woot! This book -- a mad collaboration from four horror gods (small 'g') -- is this cat's meow (or as they say where I come from -- it's all that and a bag of chips). It was going to take a lot for this book to impress me for the simple reason that vampires...

    I didn't find the setup or the ending to be particularly satisfying. And I found some of the banter between characters to be pretty hokey (especially the constant quoting from action movies). Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me say that this is one crazy, action-packed...

    I was recently involved in a heated debate over the merits of this book (see link at bottom of review). Draculas, it is fair to say, is written to a certain formula. And, for me at least, it was a formula that worked well. A simple, but nonetheless effective plot, and paced at b...

    3.5 First, you need to know what to expect from this book. You wouldn't do it justice if you expect a horror monster story. Next, the only reason I'd call it horror is because I am not really sure where else to put it. That, and it does have monsters, blood and death. There are many t...

    If you're looking for literary horror that might send a chill down your spine in between prosaic descriptions of foreboding forests and ominous castles, click the back button on your browser and continue your search elsewhere. But if you're looking for a bloody good time as a bunch of ...

    4.5 stars. I was skeptical that a book written by four different authors telling a single story could be a good, cohesive read but I was wrong. This one was great. I am so glad my friend on Good Reads Stephen recommended it & that I had the sense to trust his excellent taste. Seat ...

    This was a rip roaring, funny gore fest! Draculas was written by four authors: Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Blake Crouch. These are anti-sparkle vampires. All they want is blood and they will even suck their own if nothing else is available. I don't even know what...

    5++ stars A completely different and ingenious take on the vampire novel. 4 amazing authors: J.A. Konrath, Blake Crouch, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn, and Jeff Strand - each creating their own characters and following them through to the end - come together to create an absolutel...

    This book was one hell of a journey, loved all the way though, 5-stars all the way, until the a kind of lackluster ending (view spoiler)[ everything that happened, all the sacrifices made, were completely unnecessary (except for perhaps the 4 saved children who I didn't care about) - s...

    If you're looking for a sexy vampire with any sort of redeeming qualities, you won't find it here. And this book is absolutely not for sensitive or squeamish readers. Draculas is a fast-paced, bloody mess of a story about the original type of bloodthirsty vampires who terrorized humans...

    Ok, get excited: this book promises a no-bullshit horror gorefest, and that is exactly what it provides. It's a fun, exciting and even disturbing read. I hear you: vampires is done but done to death these days, and a lot of that work is dull. Draculas never sinks to that kind of me...

    What happens when you take a disgustingly rich old man on death's doorstep with his hands on an artifact of the first vampire in creation? Would you know the answer if I told you that artifact was a skull with fangs intact? No? Really? Ok, I'll tell you! He bites himself with it! Glori...

    Someone should send this book to Guillermo de Toro so he can learn how to write a vampire novel. OK. Snide comment aside, DRACULAS is a can't-put-down, edge-of-your-seat, stomach turning gorefest featuring vampires ransacking a hospital. These are not your normal vamps and none of t...

    Mortimer Moorecook is a billionaire but he is dying of cancer. Willing to lengthen his life, he pays to get a vampire skull that was dug up from the ground in Transylvania known as the "Dracula Skull" and upon receiving it plunges the fanged skull into his neck. Upon arriving to the ho...

    I don't know if it was just that I was tired of Vampire books. Or that I was looking for a new spin or a fresh look. I enjoy reading each of these authors books in the past but this one didn't do anything for me. I see by the reviews that a lot of people really liked this book. I didn...

    Joe asked me last week to look over his new release, and when I agreed, I was given the full copy to peruse. He and I met years ago in an online writing group, and I designed Joe's first web-site. With the horror genre not being my particular favourite in which to write (although ...

    Draculas by Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson N/A, 2010 ASIN: B0042AMD2M Available: E-Book Only Losing at his battle with cancer, Mortimer Moorecock decides to find his own ?cure?. He purchases an old artifact, more specifically a skull with elongate...

    Draculas is not your ordinary tale of a bloodsucker. The Draculas in this novel are nasty and billed as the kind that will crawl into your head and give you nightmares. The novel is a collaboration of four different authors and it really works. One might expect for it to be a hodge pod...

    Someone should send this book to Guillermo de Toro so he can learn how to write a vampire novel. OK. Snide comment aside, DRACULAS is a can't-put-down, edge-of-your-seat, stomach turning gorefest featuring vampires ransacking a hospital. These are not your normal vamps and none of t...

    Mortimer Moorecook is a billionaire but he is dying of cancer. Willing to lengthen his life, he pays to get a vampire skull that was dug up from the ground in Transylvania known as the "Dracula Skull" and upon receiving it plunges the fanged skull into his neck. Upon arriving to the ho...

    I don't know if it was just that I was tired of Vampire books. Or that I was looking for a new spin or a fresh look. I enjoy reading each of these authors books in the past but this one didn't do anything for me. I see by the reviews that a lot of people really liked this book. I didn...

    Joe asked me last week to look over his new release, and when I agreed, I was given the full copy to peruse. He and I met years ago in an online writing group, and I designed Joe's first web-site. With the horror genre not being my particular favourite in which to write (although ...

    Draculas by Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson N/A, 2010 ASIN: B0042AMD2M Available: E-Book Only Losing at his battle with cancer, Mortimer Moorecock decides to find his own ?cure?. He purchases an old artifact, more specifically a skull with elongate...

    Draculas is not your ordinary tale of a bloodsucker. The Draculas in this novel are nasty and billed as the kind that will crawl into your head and give you nightmares. The novel is a collaboration of four different authors and it really works. One might expect for it to be a hodge pod...

    I read this book straight through in one sitting, until 2 o'clock in the morning. I felt as though if I were to stop for a bit, the effect of unrelenting fear and gore would have been lessened as the story moved forward incredibly fast. Many different characters were introduced at the ...

    A very bloody good time! Want to get in the mood for Halloween? Get this book! DRACULAS is a crazy, no-holds-barred, totally over-the-top good time! It's a horror novel that delivers grotesque terror after grotesque terror at an unrelenting pace, yet it's also got humor galore. It's...

    Draculas by J.A Konrath, Blake Crouch, Jeff Strand and F. Paul Wilson is something to get behind. Courage and innovation like this are in short supply. It's a bold experiment; an ebook by four noteable authors, full of special extras, telling a story from a multitude of perspectives. T...

    Yes, yes, YES!! This is what a vampire story should be! While Bram Stoker wrote, at the core, a love story with DRACULA, I can't help but feel that it has been romanticized (on bad days - bastardized) to a sickening degree. I don't mean to offend, but I absolutely hate the trend of ...

    A very solid 4 stars!! Any fan of horror would enjoy this great, gory, non-glittery vampire tale. Will these four horsemen ever get together and write again? I definitely hope so. I'm sure there is more death, war, pestilence, and famine to be written about. The extras were a nice add...

    I decided to read this book because I am a fan of all the authors and thought the premise sounded interesting. It far exceeded my expectations. It was a good ole balls to the wall kick ass vampire gore fest. Excellent. Highly recommended! ...

    This review is dedicated to Steven's and Bridget's reviews, the reasons I even heard about this book let alone couldn't wait another second after I got my Kindle to read it. The author, Joe Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn), writes in the introduction to Draculas that this is an attempt to...

    Yowza, wowzers, and woot! woot! This book -- a mad collaboration from four horror gods (small 'g') -- is this cat's meow (or as they say where I come from -- it's all that and a bag of chips). It was going to take a lot for this book to impress me for the simple reason that vampires...

    I didn't find the setup or the ending to be particularly satisfying. And I found some of the banter between characters to be pretty hokey (especially the constant quoting from action movies). Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me say that this is one crazy, action-packed...

    I was recently involved in a heated debate over the merits of this book (see link at bottom of review). Draculas, it is fair to say, is written to a certain formula. And, for me at least, it was a formula that worked well. A simple, but nonetheless effective plot, and paced at b...

    3.5 First, you need to know what to expect from this book. You wouldn't do it justice if you expect a horror monster story. Next, the only reason I'd call it horror is because I am not really sure where else to put it. That, and it does have monsters, blood and death. There are many t...

    This was a rip roaring, funny gore fest! Draculas was written by four authors: Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Blake Crouch. These are anti-sparkle vampires. All they want is blood and they will even suck their own if nothing else is available. I don't even know what...

    If you're looking for a sexy vampire with any sort of redeeming qualities, you won't find it here. And this book is absolutely not for sensitive or squeamish readers. Draculas is a fast-paced, bloody mess of a story about the original type of bloodthirsty vampires who terrorized humans...

    Yowza, wowzers, and woot! woot! This book -- a mad collaboration from four horror gods (small 'g') -- is this cat's meow (or as they say where I come from -- it's all that and a bag of chips). It was going to take a lot for this book to impress me for the simple reason that vampires...

    I didn't find the setup or the ending to be particularly satisfying. And I found some of the banter between characters to be pretty hokey (especially the constant quoting from action movies). Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me say that this is one crazy, action-packed...

    I was recently involved in a heated debate over the merits of this book (see link at bottom of review). Draculas, it is fair to say, is written to a certain formula. And, for me at least, it was a formula that worked well. A simple, but nonetheless effective plot, and paced at b...

    3.5 First, you need to know what to expect from this book. You wouldn't do it justice if you expect a horror monster story. Next, the only reason I'd call it horror is because I am not really sure where else to put it. That, and it does have monsters, blood and death. There are many t...

    If you're looking for literary horror that might send a chill down your spine in between prosaic descriptions of foreboding forests and ominous castles, click the back button on your browser and continue your search elsewhere. But if you're looking for a bloody good time as a bunch of ...

    4.5 stars. I was skeptical that a book written by four different authors telling a single story could be a good, cohesive read but I was wrong. This one was great. I am so glad my friend on Good Reads Stephen recommended it & that I had the sense to trust his excellent taste. Seat ...

    This was a rip roaring, funny gore fest! Draculas was written by four authors: Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Blake Crouch. These are anti-sparkle vampires. All they want is blood and they will even suck their own if nothing else is available. I don't even know what...

    5++ stars A completely different and ingenious take on the vampire novel. 4 amazing authors: J.A. Konrath, Blake Crouch, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn, and Jeff Strand - each creating their own characters and following them through to the end - come together to create an absolutel...

    This book was one hell of a journey, loved all the way though, 5-stars all the way, until the a kind of lackluster ending (view spoiler)[ everything that happened, all the sacrifices made, were completely unnecessary (except for perhaps the 4 saved children who I didn't care about) - s...

    If you're looking for a sexy vampire with any sort of redeeming qualities, you won't find it here. And this book is absolutely not for sensitive or squeamish readers. Draculas is a fast-paced, bloody mess of a story about the original type of bloodthirsty vampires who terrorized humans...

    When I think of horror I think of movies I watched as a kid like The House on the Haunted Hill starring Julie Merriam and The Legend of Hell House starring Roddy McDowell, both movies made me afraid of entering big houses. Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde starring Fredric March made me afraid of...

    Joe Konrath of A Newbie's Guide to Publishing fame posted an offer giving away free ARC's of an upcoming horror eBook he and three other authors wrote in exchange for a review here and on Amazon.com. I've gotten a lot of good info from Joe's blog, so I figured I'd do him a favor, read ...

    Ok, get excited: this book promises a no-bullshit horror gorefest, and that is exactly what it provides. It's a fun, exciting and even disturbing read. I hear you: vampires is done but done to death these days, and a lot of that work is dull. Draculas never sinks to that kind of me...

    There was a war movie in Hindi which lasts a good 3.5 hours. After the first fifteen minutes or so you see a soldier walking down a hillock and a shot is fired by the enemy and from then on until the end of the movie, the shots keep on coming. By the time I came out of the theatre, my ...

    What happens when you take a disgustingly rich old man on death's doorstep with his hands on an artifact of the first vampire in creation? Would you know the answer if I told you that artifact was a skull with fangs intact? No? Really? Ok, I'll tell you! He bites himself with it! Glori...

    Someone should send this book to Guillermo de Toro so he can learn how to write a vampire novel. OK. Snide comment aside, DRACULAS is a can't-put-down, edge-of-your-seat, stomach turning gorefest featuring vampires ransacking a hospital. These are not your normal vamps and none of t...

    Mortimer Moorecook is a billionaire but he is dying of cancer. Willing to lengthen his life, he pays to get a vampire skull that was dug up from the ground in Transylvania known as the "Dracula Skull" and upon receiving it plunges the fanged skull into his neck. Upon arriving to the ho...

    I don't know if it was just that I was tired of Vampire books. Or that I was looking for a new spin or a fresh look. I enjoy reading each of these authors books in the past but this one didn't do anything for me. I see by the reviews that a lot of people really liked this book. I didn...

    Joe asked me last week to look over his new release, and when I agreed, I was given the full copy to peruse. He and I met years ago in an online writing group, and I designed Joe's first web-site. With the horror genre not being my particular favourite in which to write (although ...

    Draculas by Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson N/A, 2010 ASIN: B0042AMD2M Available: E-Book Only Losing at his battle with cancer, Mortimer Moorecock decides to find his own ?cure?. He purchases an old artifact, more specifically a skull with elongate...

    Draculas is not your ordinary tale of a bloodsucker. The Draculas in this novel are nasty and billed as the kind that will crawl into your head and give you nightmares. The novel is a collaboration of four different authors and it really works. One might expect for it to be a hodge pod...

    I read this book straight through in one sitting, until 2 o'clock in the morning. I felt as though if I were to stop for a bit, the effect of unrelenting fear and gore would have been lessened as the story moved forward incredibly fast. Many different characters were introduced at the ...

    A very bloody good time! Want to get in the mood for Halloween? Get this book! DRACULAS is a crazy, no-holds-barred, totally over-the-top good time! It's a horror novel that delivers grotesque terror after grotesque terror at an unrelenting pace, yet it's also got humor galore. It's...

    Draculas by J.A Konrath, Blake Crouch, Jeff Strand and F. Paul Wilson is something to get behind. Courage and innovation like this are in short supply. It's a bold experiment; an ebook by four noteable authors, full of special extras, telling a story from a multitude of perspectives. T...

    Yes, yes, YES!! This is what a vampire story should be! While Bram Stoker wrote, at the core, a love story with DRACULA, I can't help but feel that it has been romanticized (on bad days - bastardized) to a sickening degree. I don't mean to offend, but I absolutely hate the trend of ...
