From Authors’ Website:

A DYING MAN’S GREATEST TREASURE…

From F. Paul Wilson, Jeff Strand, Jack Kilborn, and Blake Crouch…

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.

My Review:

I do not typically read horror novels, but I really enjoyed this one. Draculas returns the vampire to the scary shadows where they once resided. The authors did it in a way that I feel Bram Stoker would be proud. The four authors weaved a seamless gothic style horror story that takes place in the current century at a small southern Colorado town hospital. The writing was fluid and the characters were very real.  I enjoyed the changing point of views from one character to another, and the authors did not just stick to the unaffected for the point of view narrations.  Even though there were four individual authors, a reader would only be able to tell by very little tell tale signs and only if they were looking for them. I would recommend this book to people who love old school “monster in the box” type horror.

I give Draculas a 4 Horseshoe rating.

 

 

Draculas can be purchased at Amazon.com. If you do not have a kindle and do not want to download the Kindle application, the authors provide a way to still read their novel here.
