Recommends it for: vampire, Dracula, samurai, Japanese history fans
I am the author, so I won't rate or review my own book, but to summarize, this book is Dracula, by Bram Stoker, re-written in a standard format, and instead of the vampire being a Transylvanian count who relocates from Transylvania to London in the 1890's, the vampire is a Japanese lord who relocates from Japan to Los Angeles in 1872. Also, a new character is introduced, historical swordsman, Yagyu Jubei.
