It's interesting how at the end of the synopsis of this book it says it's an unforgettable erotic tale giving the impression that it's a vampire erotica. It's anything but that.
It's a vampire novel and yes it does have some erotica in it but not true erotica and that's more towards the end of the story. This is more a general vampire novel about Count Dracula being told from the perspective of Dracula's servant.
Basically it borrows a lot from Bram Stoker's Dracula which is not a rarity in itself

As a young teenager, long before the twilight craze, this was the first vampire novel I ever read. I was completely drawn into the world of this story (a retelling of Dracula) and hung on every word. I loved the created chracter of Ox, and the rewritten character of Mina. I will always remember this book with fondness. After this, I moved on to Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and, of course, the original Dracula novel, but I will never forget the dark magic of this book.

This is one of my all time favorite books, Victor Kelleher is an AMAZING author. I have read this book at least 3 times (as I've only ever been able to find it in the library)! This is an amazing take on the ever popular Dracula story, and I'm not going to give any more details because this is really one book that you just need to pick up and read to appreciate, no review will ever be able to explain the awesomeness that is "Into The Dark"
