What if Dracula were brought back to life to fight the Nazis?
Ravaged by the Nazi Secret Service during World War II, Romanian resistance forces turn to one of their leaders, Professor Van Helsing, for any way out. To fight these monstrous forces, Van Helsing raises a legendary monster from centuries of slumber - Prince Dracula himself.
Once he was the ruler of Transylvania. Prince Dracula, is, above all else, a patriot. He proves more than willing to once again drive out his country's invaders. Upshot: No one minds if he drinks all the German blood he desires.
In Berlin, when Hitler hears about the many defeats his forces are suffering at the hands of an apparent true vampire, he is seduced by the possibility of becoming immortal. Thus two forces are set upon a collision course, the ultimate confrontation: superpower against superpower.

Dracula has always been a favorite of mine. I read the original once every couple of years. And as a pop culture icon, he's been portrayed as both a hero and a villain, but even as a villain, we love to root for him. In Dracula vs Hitler, Dracula becomes the perfect anti-hero, the reluctant hero who gains redemption through his positive deeds. The story was masterfully written and the narrator played through the assorted accents and character changes flawlessly. It ended in such a way that could easily transition into a series, while concluding the story if nothing more is to come of it (which I hope isn't true). I'll definitely look into more selections from both Patrick Sheane Duncan and Mathew Brenher. Well done.
