When Joseph Barkeley receives a call enlisting his services to authenticate the original draft of Bram Stoker's Dracula, he is intrigued. Ignoring the warnings from friends and family, he agrees to return to his childhood home of Romania. And hand-deliver the manuscript to a mysterious buyer. Once there Joseph discovers a truth more terrifying than he could ever have imagined. One that threatens to reignite a centuries-old family feud and bring down mankind with it. And Stoker’s manuscript holds the key to ending this fatal conflict once and for all.
"It’s creepy, it has a real feeling of authenticity and for me, was a story that I absolutely loved as I devoured the pages to see what would happen next. Add to this a principle character that the readers will enjoy spending time with as well as a wonderfully dark and evocative description of the landscape and all round as a reader I was more than immersed until the final page turned. Great stuff." (Falcata Times)
"In a world where vampires are the new romantic heroes, Stoker’s Manuscript is a bit of a Godsend. I, for one, am absolutely delighted to find some good old fashioned evil as sin, night dwelling, blood guzzling, crucifix hating Romanian villains... The concept is stunning... The description of the landscape and the locations is second only to actually being there... Overall, a really interesting read and I’m just as impressed by the staggering amount of effort that went into research as I am with the actual novel itself... A fantastic back-to-basics of the vampire novel with a twist, this is a seamless blend of fantasy, history and present day reality." (4 stars, The Bookbag)
