Dracula Prince of Many Faces Book Description:

A biography of the real 15th-century Wallachian leader known as Vlad the Impaler, who inspired the classic horror novel by Bram Stoker. Dreaded by his enemies, emulated by later rulers like Ivan the Terrible, honored by his countrymen even today, Vlad Dracula was surely one of the most intriguing figures to have stalked the corridors of European and Asian capitals in the fifteenth century. Vlad Dracula also served as the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s classic vampire tale. However, as this biography proves, “the real Dracula is far more interesting than the fictional vampire” (Houston Chronicle). Covering Vlad Dracula’s entire life and subsequent legend, this book includes “a fascinating chapter on the mystery of Dracula’s empty grave” (New York Times Book Review). Praise for Dracula, Prince of Many Faces “Florescu and McNally manage to capture the ruthlessness, romance, and courage that characterized Dracula’s ultimately pitiable life. . . . A fascinating look at political intrigue in fifteenth-century Eastern Europe.” —Lamar B. Graham, Boston Phoenix Literary Supplement

Dracula Om Illustrated Classics Book Description:

“I am Dracula. Welcome to my house. Enter freely and of your own will.”Jonathan Harker has little idea that his business trip to meet the mysterious Count of Transylvania would turn into his worst nightmare. Held captive in Dracula’s strange, dark castle, Jonathan discovers that the Count is in fact a vampire, who has been living on human blood for centuries! Soon, Dracula claims his first victim, the beautiful Lucy Westenra, a friend of Jonathan’s wife Mina. But this is just the beginning of Dracula’s cruel intentions. And evil must be vanquished, before it can claim more victims! Now, it will take some clever and courageous people—Professor Van Helsing, Dr Seward, Arthur Holmwood, Quincey Morris, Jonathan and Mina Harker—to outwit and completely destroy the indomitable Dracula. Much before vampires became a fad for the 21st-century reader, Bram Stoker wrote Dracula. Packed with action, thrill and horror, and written in an epistolary form, this mother-of-all gothic novels is a classic page-turner.
