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!

Summary:

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.
