Goodreads Summary:

Inspired by E. Nesbit’s Shakespeare Stories and the BBC’s The Musketeers, S.G.D. Singh’s Dracula Retold takes Bram Stoker’s captivating tale of an un-dead Count and those brave enough to challenge him, and brings it into the twenty-first century. Discover the world’s favorite vampire, whose fame has endured for more than a century and influenced countless films, novels, and art across the globe—or rediscover a favorite classic and fall under the spell of this mesmerizing adventure all over again.

DRACULA RETOLD: A young lawyer travels to Transylvania, where he begins to doubt his own sanity and unwittingly helps to unleash an ancient evil across the sea and onto the teeming streets of London. A beloved and beautiful woman suffers from a puzzling illness, her blood mysteriously drained with each passing day. And a group of improbable heroes gather to hunt a vampire. Can they destroy the creature before it’s too late for us all?

My Review:

Dracula has always been an intriguing character, hasn’t he? Drink blood to live? Definitely interesting! As soon as I saw this cover, I knew I was down! Throw all my money at that miraculous sight!

I really loved how the story was told through journals, emails, etc. I’ve never read the original book, but I think I may need to now! I’m usually more of a vampire movie person, but I was sucked into this world and these characters! The bond between these people and how they sacrificed themselves with selflessness to help one another was amazing!

My favorite part would have to be at the beginning when Jonathan first encounters Dracula and all the lovely and creepy descriptions that came with it. From there, things get super interesting for the remainder of the book! Absolutely adored this one and the beautiful writing!
