REVIEW: Stoker’s Manuscript

When a rare book dealer is asked to source and authenticate the original Dracula manuscript by Bram Stoker, he ends up mired in a centuries old Transylvanian family feud. Once an orphan in Romania, he is forced to return to his homeland to meet his client – the son of Vlad the Impaler. He quickly realizes that he has become a pawn in a larger game and that his future is no longer his own to guide… and perhaps he was always destined for this path.

This book perfectly matches the tone and pace of Bram’s original story. So if you’re looking for something fast paced and outwardly gruesome, this is not for you. Instead it’s the perfect balance of gothic atmosphere with creepy mystery at its center. It does get viscerally gruesome towards the end but you’ve really gotta wait for it. The ending was a bit of a surprise but I liked it.

This one is definitely being added to my vampire shelf.
