Dracula: Hearts of Stone
I absolutely love the way Dracula is depicted in this story- he's comical, and deadly serious at the same time, which is just a perfect mix. The characters he has around him simply add to the humor and depth of his ancient personality."
This is book 1 of 3
Dracula and Piers Anthony together.
Valiant vampire sheriffs are being overrun and need Dracula to step up in this tale of magic, romance and fangs.
Evil vampires want to take over the world.
Dracula has moved beyond his twilight years, into a twisted state he never thought possible. He’s no longer a monster but Dracula is depressed, suicidal in fact. Life is no longer worth living. Bram Stoker would no longer recognise him. His vampire diaries no longer interest him even though his only friend would love to tell his tale. People are being murdered by biters all over the world and Piers Anthony wants Dracula to do something about it.
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a new novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone. Dracula commands it.
New York City is under attack.
Nasty vampires are feeding on vulnerable mortals and causing chaos. Years ago Dracula trained valiant sheriffs and expects them to defend the humans but they are being overrun. Piers Anthony, the author, is now a vampire. He spends his days attempting to get the Master to snap out of it and to defend people, without losing his head.
A 12-year-old girl is a rare hybrid, half human and half vampire; she was conceived the normal way, with her mother a mortal and her father a vampire. Jenny is slowly discovering that she may be a blood wizard. She’s already an accomplished vampire killer and can cast spells, but an underground figure has noticed the girl. Some believe that she might be the one of legend that tips the scale toward good.
Sheriff Alexander and his vampire dog (German shepherd) stand and fight for justice.
Will the red sheriffs be overrun? Will Michael finally get the courage to ask out the sheriff?
