“This prequel to Dracula, written in collaboration by Dacre Stoker—Bram Stoker’s great grand-nephew—and J.D. Barker, dives deeper into the origins of the famous vampire, while delivering chills and thrills in a historical setting.”
In 1868, twenty-one-year-old Bram Stoker must face a horrifying evil. With holy water, crucifixes, and a rifle, he must survive the longest night of his young life. As a child, Bram was bedridden, cared for by a young woman named Ellen Crone. After strange deaths occur in a nearby town, Bram and his sister Matilda uncover a weird pattern of behavior in Ellen before she vanishes from their lives.
When Matilda returns from her studies in Paris, years later, she confides in Bram that she’s seen Ellen again after all those years, and the nightmare they thought was over begins once again.
