Overview

With "Covenant with the Vampire", Jeanne Kalogridis launched a thrilling new vampire trilogy that takes on one of the most intriguing horror classics of all time - Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Haunting, sensuous, and compulsively listenable, this debut novel was published to critical acclaim, and established Kalogridis as a writer to be reckoned with in vampire fiction. Now "Children of the Vampire", the dark and stylishly erotic second book in the series, delves even deeper into the terrifying mysteries behind Dracula.

It is Amsterdam, 1871, twenty-five years before the start of Stoker's novel, and twenty-five years following Arkady Tsepesh's flight from his family's ancestral castle with his wife and young son, Stefan, after learning that he and his family are bound by an ancient covenant to serve their ancestor, Prince Vlad Tsepesh - Dracula. Now a vampire, Arkady has tried to break the covenant and failed. Separated from his beloved wife and son, he has one all-consuming desire - to destroy Vlad before he draws son Stefan into eternal service through the blood ritual. He tracks Vlad and his kidnapped son to Transylvania as he seeks to free his family and put an end to the terrible covenant - even if it means he must destroy his own son.

The battle waged in the heart of the Family Dracul continues, as the innocent take up arms against the monster. As his loved ones indulge in forbidden crimes with a legendary passion, Vlad the Impaler's heir, Arkady, cries out to his sons" "Let the curse end with me!"

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Both a prequel to Bram Stoker's Dracula and a sequel to Kalogridis's own Covenant with the Vampire (1994), this second novel in a projected trilogy suffers by comparison to both. Arkady Tsepesh, the protagonist of Covenant, flees the castle of his great-granduncle, Vlad, Count Dracula, but he can't elude the influence of the vampire bite that has bound him to his sire, as it has the firstborn male of each generation of Tsepeshs for the past four centuries. Meanwhile, Arkady's wife, Mary, who has given her husband up for dead, moves to Amsterdam and marries Doctor Jan Van Helsing. Neither Stefan, her son by Arkady, nor Abraham, whom the Van Helsings have adopted, have reason to suspect they are not blood brothers until the family curse draws Stefan to Vlad's castle in Transylvania. Gratuitous scenes of sex and violence perpetrated by the merciless Vlad and Arkady's hedonistic vampire sister, Zsuzsanna, fail to alleviate the tedium of the narrative, told in diary format through a number of voices. Notwithstanding its occasional plot twists, this novel does little more than rehash the plot elements of Covenant with the Vampire while setting the stage for events that will occur in the last book in the series.
