Overview

Children of the Vampire (The Diaries of the Family Dracul #2) by Jeanne Kalogridis

In this terrifying, brilliantly imagine novel, Jeanne Kalogridis returns the same dark, sensual territory she visited in Covenant with the Vampire. Once again she explores the breathtaking battle waged in the hart of the Family Dracul—as the innocent take up arms against the monster.

In the flickering gaslights of Vienna a brother watches—as a woman of alabaster beauty, his sister, takes two lovers at once. Then she pours her passion into the most forbidden act of all . . . 

In the streets of Amsterdam a young man, the secret lover of his brother’s wife, is whisked into a waiting carriage for a long journey into darkness and reunion with his father . . . 

They are a family bound my an ancient curse, one generation pitted against another, taboos shattered, their firstborn’s blood sipped from a silver chalice. In his stony fortress waits Vlad the Impaler, while his heir, Arkady, cries out to his sons: “Let the curse end with me!

“Jeanne Kalogridis has launched a vampire hero who will haunt my nights for decades—or lifetimes—to come.”—Jacqueline Lichtenber, author of Those of My Blood

I really don't like the original novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. I enjoy the story behind it, and I think it could be a very detailed and interesting story, but when I read the book, I found myself severly disapointed. So, to fill the void, I rented these books from the library. And I was...shocked at the..creativity of this story. The author took a back story that is very timeless and well known and made something very unique and different with it. I enjoyed this book greatly, and I was rather happy with it. I suggest that if you felt a bit let down with the original Dracula, you should pick up these books.

As a continuation of Covenant With the Vampire, in Children of the Vampire, Arkady Tsepesh lives in fear of the family obligation or curse to provide Vlad Dracula the first born male of each generation for a blood sacrifice. This has been a tradition for over 400 years and Arkady insists that this nightmare is going to end with him. The book has the same dark atmosphere as the first in the trilogy and the suspense keeps building. Written in a diary format, you are able to get close to each person and feel their overwhelming hope, despair, tragedy throughout. This is an excellent sequel to Covenant With the Vampire.

This is one of my favorite books, alot of the books I read don't catch my attention as this one did. I've read it over and over. I definately recomend it to any Vlad Tepes fans.

An excellent book. When I first started reading this book, I didn't know that it was book two in a trilogy, and became very disenhearted, for I never do well in a series without reading book one. But this book grabs you and holds you in place with stone until you finish. This book is so excellent, that as soon as I finished, I flipped to page 1 and started reading again!

Picking up where the last one left off, it kept my interest the ENTIRE time I was reading it. I was not previously aware of how it tied in with Stoker's Dracula (I didn't think it was actually related to Stoker's Dracula), and I was very pleasantly surprised when I read the name Abraham Van Helsing.
