Written by the amazing Patrick Sheane Duncan, who is known for Courage Under Fire, Mr. Holland’s Opus, and Nick of Time, comes an amazing tale of action and adventure in a time when people were losing faith and the battle for mankind.
Being destroyed and ravaged by the Nazi Secret Service during World War II, Romanian resistance forces turn to Professor Van Helsing for any way out. To fight these horrid monstrous forces, Van Helsing raises a legendary monster from centuries of slumber… Prince Dracula himself.
Once he was the ruler of Transylvania, and Prince Vlad Dracul, is, above all else, a patriot. He proves more than willing to once again drive out his country’s invaders.
I found this story to be not only exciting but fascinating. At first I was a little put off because of the title, but as I read each page, I realized that this isn’t your typical storyline. This is something much more and builds upon elements of the original Bram Stoker novel. It has romance, warfare, and blood galore and is everything you want in a horror novel.
It contains a story within a story within a story, and it’s brilliant. It starts off with Mr. Duncan finding top secret documents on a battle that happened in WWII and then having them analyzed. Each portion is written in a different font style to differentiate the stories or action, so on one end you have the Nazi party communication as well as the Van Helsing letters, and then you have the war journal entries as well as excerpts from an unpublished novel written by Lucy Van Helsing, all making up one glorious badass story that will keep you wanting more. In fact, I found the story so intriguing that I swear as I read on, my mind felt like it was watching a movie and nothing could distract me from the visions of the words that were flowing into my head so gloriously. I wouldn’t be surprised if this became an on-screen classic eventually, and I for one am hoping that it does.
In short, Dracula vs. Hitler is an amazing tale that I will be recommending to everyone. Don’t miss out!
