Dracula Chronicles: Death of Kings

Dracula Chronicles: Death of Kings

by Victor T. Foia




Dracula is among the best-known men in the world, yet arguably the least understood. While many stories have been told about both the real and the fictional Dracula, Foia's account benefits from the unique perspective of a Transylvanian native. Under his pen, Dracula Chronicles finally pierces the veil of mystery that has shrouded the Wallachian king for over 500 years. The multivolume historical novel unfolds in vivid detail Dracula's metamorphosis from a naïve prince to the ruthless law-and-order king whose deeds have spawned the most enduring vampire legend. Taking place on the backdrop of the dying Middle Ages and the blossoming of the Renaissance, Dracula Chronicles is replete with passions, ambitions, betrayals, and revenge.

Book Four, Death of Kings, shows Prince Vlad, a.k.a. Dracula, as a key player on the European political stage. Sultan Murad has embarked upon a secret gamble to replace jihad against Christendom with a long-term peace. Vlad, driven by a belief in a hundred-year-old prophecy, commits to assisting him. But his mission is beset by deadly threats from old and new enemies. When all hope appears lost, only his sense of honor and the longing to return to the woman he loves keep him going.

About the Author

Victor T. Foia was born in Transylvania where he studied theoretical physics at the Babes-Bolyai University. At the age of twenty-two, Victor escaped from behind the Iron Curtain and defected to Italy. After a waiting period of months spent in UN refugee camps, he emigrated to the United States. There, Victor graduated from the Universities of Illinois and Dallas. He then embarked upon a career as an international corporate executive, culminating in the position of CEO of an international corporation. Presently he is engaged full time in writing historical fiction.
Victor's interest in Dracula dates from the age of six, when he first visited his compatriot's birthplace, only a hundred miles from his own. Soon this interest became a lasting passion for research into Dracula's life. Over a period of four decades Victor visited castles, fortresses, and monasteries throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In doing this, he aimed to gaze beyond Dracula's iconic image and try to ferret out the essence of the man behind the legend. Victor's journey has taken him to virtually all the places where Dracula lived, loved, fought, and was imprisoned. In the end, by the empty tomb from where the prince disappeared without a trace half a millennium ago, Victor felt his journey of discovery was complete, and now the story of the real Dracula could be told.
