it was ok
Read in September, 2009 — I own a copy

I met Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt at BookExpo and got an autographed ARC copy of this book for free. That's the good news -- I got it for free. I liked Dacre Stoker (notice how I didn't mention Ian Holt...) and I wanted to like his book but I was disappointed. I was hoping for more Dracula and less Elizabeth Bathory and Jack the Ripper. Actually, there were about 400 characters in the book and the game of recognizing them started distracting me from the plot. Besides for characters from the original book, Bram Stoker was a character in the book plus lots of the real people that he associated with as well as many characters with the names of actors who have played Dracula. For example, there was a character in the book named Langella. There were some good action scenes and Ian Holt probably hopes that it will make a great movie.

Two stars was an act of charity because Dacre Stoker seems like such a nice guy.
