I have recently had the chance to read Draculas, since I got my hands on a review copy. The novel is scheduled to be released tomorrow, and it was written by ??J. A. Konrath, Jack Kilborn, F. Paul Wilson and Jeff Strand.
According to the authors, it is an attempt to make vampires scary again, and it succeeds to a certain extent. They move away from angst-filled teen heartthrobs, and make the monsters in the story animalistic monstrous predators, with no interest other than blood.
The story is simple, it focuses on a bunch of people trying to survive a vampire outbreak in a small hospital.
Blood is something that you will find plenty of in this novel, and I personally found the constant gore to be too much at times, as the authors tried to outdo each other. There is no mistaking this book for psychological horror!
I found the book entertaining, despite its faults. It is fairly short, and it took me a while to get into it. The characters are very well done, and have some depth to them.
Overall, I found Draculas to be a light and entertaining read. If you are a fan of over the top splatterpunk horror, this would be perfect. If you are not, than you might want to give it a miss.
