Publisher's Summary

Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer's field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull's razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.

A rural hospital. A slow night in the ER. Until Moorecook arrives strapped to a gurney, where he promptly codes and dies.

Four well-known horror authors pool their penchants for scares and thrills, and tackle one of the greatest of all legends, with each writer creating a unique character and following them through a vampire outbreak in a secluded hospital.

The goal was simple: write the most intense novel they possibly could. Which they did. A Word of Warning: Within this story, you will find no black capes, no satin-lined coffins, no brooding heartthrobs who want to talk about your feelings. Forget sunlight and stakes. Throw out your garlic and your crosses. This is the Anti-Twilight.

Throw the plot out the window, this is all about the action. It is non stop. If you just want to hear about gross, gory stuff and not complicate it with a plot, than this is your book.

Exciting!! Non-Stop Fun!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Draculas?

When the nurse was cornered in the closet with the children trying to keep the draculas from getting in and turning anymore of the children...

Which character – as performed by Eric Dawe – was your favorite?

Nurse Jenny was my favorite.

If you could take any character from Draculas out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would have to say nurse Jenny because even though Dr. Lance was an ass she still maintained a gentle and lovable character.

Any additional comments?

The book was outstanding! I was not bored at any point! LOVED IT!!

Exactly what I expected

This one included every cliche known to horror/apocalytic novels and lots of gore but it was kind of a guilty pleasure for me. The narrator was excellent..some of his 'woman voices' made me want to grit my teeth for just a moment but he captured the over the top cowboy cop and the lumberjack characters really well and showed great talent in keeping the story moving. I just wish he'd done a few less 'squeeeak, squeeeak, squeeeeaks' in some places..kind of painful when you're wearing earbuds!

Could have been so much better.

Let me start by saying that this book was NOT a waste of my time. It entertained me and kept my attention on a long drive, and sometimes that's as much as you can ask from a book. It's action-packed from the start, with some fun new twists on the vampire legend.
However, the book could have been so much better. The writing is uneven at times, and the protagonists are two-dimensional, largely-unlikable characters.
Still, for fans of vampire (not Twilight or Anne Rice vampire) or zombie fiction, this book is a diverting romp.

Awesome

Would you consider the audio edition of Draculas to be better than the print version?

I loved the book and I'm enjoying the audio.

What other book might you compare Draculas to and why?

Don't know. I've read several Konrath/Kilborn books and have enjoyed them all. Still waiting on the other book that's in the works Werewolves.

What about Eric Dawe’s performance did you like?

Not bad. He did pretty good actually.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

N/A, but I would love to see this made into a movie. Benny the clown was my favorite character.

Any additional comments?

N/A

Unexpected

The story was better than I expected. While Kilborn and Crouch have collaborated incredibly well in many other books I wasn't sure how well it would work with four authors working together. The overall story was unexpectedly better than I'd expected it to be but unfortunately the overall flow wasn't quite as pensive with the "stuck on the edge of your seat", can't put the book down for even a moment feelings that I have come to expect from, and associate with from a Kilborn or Crouch (or the two combined) novel. While a decent read, not what I expected...

Bait & Switch to the max!!

They truly used the bait & switch tactic to lure readers. I knew it would be a gore fest based on the writers; no one expects a romance movie from Torintono or Rodriguez, however I was honestly stunned by the change of genre with this book
It was a damn comedy!! Albeit dark comedy but at no time was there even a hint of a frightful scene. Sure it would keep you up at nights but it would be from either laughing or rolling your eyes not from fear or chills.
Perhaps it was the narrator who lent a more comedic twist to the story, I could see(metaphorically) how if some passages were read differently the scene would be eerie as opposed to ridiculous. However when one is so distracted by the funny thoughts streaming through one mans mind as he is tearing out the throat of another with pliers well that just reveals no narrator could make this book sound scary.
If you want a good laugh and aren't squeamish then I suggest you go for it

Funniest Dracula story I've ever read.

What a joke. I laughed through the first 3 hours then went to the last 15 minutes. What a mish mash of stupid. There were so many Draculas running around that it was impossible to follow. What a waste of time and money.

Too much Blood and Guts

Instead of a strong sorry and good deep characters, this book relies on loads and loads of blood and guts. Still, keeps you going till the very end but you are left wanting more information on the characters and story.
