A boy named Todd and his dad go fishing, what could possibly go wrong? Everything could go wrong if an abandoned ship runs into your boat. Todd finds himself in a coma and having a dead dad the got drained of blood by a wolf. Now Todd¿s friends have to kill a vampire to save San Thomas Inlet while one of their friend¿s sister is going out with the lord of darkness. Is this the begging of the end? This book was fast paced because in the very first chapter someone dies and another is put in a coma. It¿s full of excitement because there¿s no single chapter where nothing bad is happening. There are only a few bad things about it for example there is not enough pages, but it fits a lot of action into this few of pages. The dates and times for each chapter make it harder to comprehend for example you ¿think this happened then but when did that happen?¿ There are not a lot of complicated words so it¿s easy to understand. It has such good imagery in some part that you feel like your actually there, but others you couldn¿t even a side of a barn in it. This is the first book of the series. Dracula is kind of like Goosebumps but more scary, and a better book. Anyone who likes horror will love this book. If you know who Darren Shan is, this is kind of like his books.

This book was simply fantastic! Humor, Suspense, and classic horror combined into one worth the read title.

Just when you think Dracula is dead...think again. Joe, Nina, and Bob have accidently let 6 old monsters from their movies and let them into the 21st centery. Opps. They would try to suck the King of Fangs back into the movie. Really funny and spooky. It'll leave with chills on the back of your neck. It was Outstanding!!!

This is more than an updated version of the same old Dracula story! Return of Evil: Dracula, Universal Monsters #1 introduces the reader to a fast talking, witty, and fun trio of teenagers who quickly discover that their peaceful little resort village has been invaded by the greatest blood sucker of all time -- Count Dracula. But, no one believes them and they have to set out to destroy the evil vampire before he turns the whole town into the walking undead. The first book of a six-part series, Return of Evil: Dracula reintroduces the dead Count in a new a disguise in a new tale of terror for the 21st Century. Some times, the dead don't stay dead for very long!
