Dracula: The Un-Dead

Dracula The Un-Dead, by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt, is
the sequel to Bram Stoker's classic novel Dracula, written
by his direct descendant.

Bram Stoker's Dracula is the prototypical horror novel, an
inspiration for the world's seemingly limitless fascination
with vampires. Though many have tried to replicate Stoker's
horror classic-in books, television shows, and movies-only
the 1931 Bela Lugosi film bore the Stoker family's support.
Until now.

Dracula The Un-Dead is a bone-chilling sequel based on
Bram Stoker's own handwritten notes for characters and plot
threads excised from the original edition. Written with the
blessing and cooperation of the Stoker family, Dracula The
Un-Dead begins in 1912, twenty-five years after Dracula
"crumbled into dust." Van Helsing's protégé, Dr. Jack Seward,
is now a disgraced morphine addict obsessed with stamping
out evil across Europe. Meanwhile, an unknowing Quincey
Harker, the grown son of Jonathan and Mina, leaves law
school for the London stage, only to stumble upon the
troubled production of "Dracula," directed and produced
by Bram Stoker himself.

The play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents'
terrible secrets, but before he can confront them he
experiences evil in a way he had never imagined. One by
one, the band of heroes that defeated Dracula a
quarter-century ago is being hunted down. Could it be that
Dracula somehow survived their attack and is seeking revenge?
Or is their another force at work whose relentless purpose is to
destroy anything and anyone associated with Dracula?

Dracula The Un-Dead is deeply researched, rich in character,
thrills and scares, and lovingly crafted as both an extension and
celebration of one of the most classic popular novels in literature.
