'The door is shut, and the chains rattle; there is a grinding of the key in the lock; I hear the creaking of lock and bolt...I shall not remain alone with them.

Product Description:

Young lawyer Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania on business for a mysterious Count. Months later in England, Lucy Westenra falls ill and dies, inexplicably, as if from a severe loss of blood. Lucy's friends, including Jonathan's fiancee Mina and the intrepid doctor Van Helsing, must begin a desperate battle against a powerful, ancient evil.

Review:

"An exercise in masculine anxiety and nationalist paranoia, Stoker's novel is filled with scenes that are staggeringly lurid and perverse... The one in Highgate cemetery, where Arthur and Van Helsing drive a stake through the writhing body of the vampirised Lucy Westenra, is my favourite" (Sarah Waters)

"It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror" (Bram Stoker’s Mother)

"Dracula is the daddy of all vampires" ( Daily Express)

"Bram Stoker's Dracula remains central to contemporary vampire myths" ( The Times)

"The ultimate monster" ( Mirror)
