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.

    "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!

    "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!!

    Story
    "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.

    "This needs to be a movie"

    I'm not much for vampire 'stuff' so I avoided this book for a long time. I finally gave it a go this week and man I should have sooner. There is more gore than I am normally fond of but it doesn't overwhelm the quality of the story. If you like any of these authors, read or listen to this book.

    "I enjoyed this book store much I read in one day"

    I was a little leary about this book and the fact it was written by 4 different authors. I figured really bad or really great results. A lot of these authors are quickly heading to my go to I know their books are gonna be great authors. This book was great! It isnt seperate book but instead one book by r authors, each creating their own characters. Very gory, funny, descriptive, and the characters come alive! I found myself rooting for certain characters to make it etc. A few surprises even and this is definitely not the typical vampire book. I don't know scary it is but then I suppose it depends on the person and what your version of what is crazy or scares you. I am very rarely scared by movie or book unless set up very realistically. I have known (maybe know) a few people like some of these characters which I thought made it better. The audio is really great.

    "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...

    Story
    "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

    "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.
