    You have to read this exciting new story to understand how it all began!

    Mr. Stein has woven an interesting story of how Vlad the Impaler became the more notoriously known Dracula. Beginning with the first word in the book, I couldn't put it down until I reached the very end. The author tells such a detailed and descriptive story that it kept me enthralled and never bored. The story is that of young Prince Vlad coming of age and wanting to prove to his father that he is worthy of standing beside him to protect and further their kingdom. Prince Vlad has always looked up to his father only to discover that when he returns from a long time away in battle that he is not the father Vlad remembers. Vlad's father is now mean and vindictive to everyone. You have to read this to see how Vlad defends the throne against the darkness of his father to find that he is now the host of that very evil he fought against. Unfortunately, that is were Mr. Stein leaves the reader. I am hanging on and can't wait to read the next installment. If you love the story of Dracula and have always wondered how he came to be, you will not be disappointed in Mr. Stein's story.

    Vlad the Impaler has long been considered to be the inspiration

    Vlad the Impaler has long been considered to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's tale of Dracula, but this story takes that tale further with the story of King Vlad's son, Vlad III. As young Vlad nears the age of maturity, ready to assume his rightful place besides his father at this time of war with the Ottomans, he notices drastic changes in his father's behavior, as well as an undefined illness that seems to be effecting the young women of his kingdom. Can he prove his worth to his father and also help these stricken young girls? I really enjoyed this story on the origins of Dracula, interwoven with tidbits from the actual legends of Vlad the Impaler. Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I was quickly drawn in to this story. It was very atmospheric, interesting and showed many nuances of the historic period. I liked Vlad
    and his servants. The story and the way it was written was interesting. I understood & felt Vlad's emotions. I understood and could
    relate to him. I liked the writing style that seemed to paint the scenery and mood. The emotional depth was handled very well. There
    was much to appreciate and enjoy.

    I got hooked quickly by the story and continued to read as the story became darker and darker. I basically knew the story of Vlad the
    Impaler so, I knew this would be pretty rough for me to read. I'm usually okay with most gore and blood doesn't bother me. But this
    book became increasingly uncomfortable for me.

    I do not like horror. I avoid it. This became tough for me since I grew to care about the main characters and felt compelled to finish
    reading. I so want(ed) to know how the outcome of the story came about. Which Vlad became the Impaler & how it happened. As I read,
    I became increasingly conflicted until it was just too much for me.

    Sadly, I did not finish this book. However, it was by no fault of the skilled author. The fact that I got as far as I did past my comfort zone
    was very telling of his talent to draw me in and keep me there despite my fears and discomfort. This is a high complement.

    I highly recommend this book to horror, hardcore vampire and Dracula/Vlad fans. Enjoy.
