Overview

A Love Affair for the Ages. Five hundred years ago their paths first crossed. He possessed her totally, not quite against her will. Until she fled. And was captured. And was punished. And fled. And is fleeing still…
Dracula tells the story of his life and his great love before he became undead. The portrait of his beloved from those precious living days is in the hands of villains. The Prince must pursue and possess this link with his breathing life. The Southerlands, particularly Judy, are ready to assist an old friend of the family.

Editorial Reviews

A Reviewer
An adventure that benefits greatly from Saberhagen’s narrative skill as the various strands leapfrog forward, keeping the reader off balance but constantly intrigued.
A Customer
Thorn was one of the eariler Dracula books and the first that dwelled extensively in two times. Half of Thorn tells the story of Dracula's life, before he became undead and provides an accurate (within reason) portrayal of the period. The other half is set in the present day southwest and brings in the characters developed in the 14-15th century.
Karen Ferrand Carroll
As I closed the cover of this book I loved the man I came to know. Not a soul-less monster but a man whose life and love was immortal. A person full of fire and passion for life, art and the wonder of the world around us. It makes one wonder, what could humankind learn in several lifetimes and then ask why haven't we.
Bob E. Bad Bob
I love a good alternative Dracula, and this is as good as any. Saberhagen really makes Dracula come alive (as it were).
