The prequel to Dracula, inspired by notes and
texts left behind by the author of the classic novel,
Dracul is a supernatural thriller that reveals not
only Dracula’s true origins but Bram Stoker’s—and the tale
of the enigmatic woman who connects them.
It is 1868, and a twenty-one-year-old Bram Stoker waits in a
desolate tower to face an indescribable evil. Armed only
with crucifixes, holy water, and a rifle, he prays to
survive a single night, the longest of his life. Desperate
to record what he has witnessed, Bram scribbles down the
events that led him here...
A sickly child, Bram spent his early days bedridden in his
parents' Dublin home, tended to by his caretaker, a young
woman named Ellen Crone. When a string of strange deaths
occur in a nearby town, Bram and his sister Matilda detect a
pattern of bizarre behavior by Ellen—a mystery that deepens
chillingly until Ellen vanishes suddenly from their lives.
Years later, Matilda returns from studying in Paris to tell
Bram the news that she has seen Ellen—and that the nightmare
they've thought long ended is only beginning.
