Although his mother-in-law and sister-in-law committed Ryland Renfield to Dr. Seward¿s Rushbrook Asylum, his link to Dracula has not been severed. He sees Dracula seduce Lucy into the life of the Undead and observes Van Helsing and his minion end her ¿life¿. Dracula has Renfield invite him inside the asylum where he gains access to Mina Harker. In an action that will change his life forever, he makes a pact with the three wives of Dracula they transform him into one of the Undead in return they do not want any more spousal rivals. --- Knowing he has lost his wife and daughter and in the thrall of the female undead, Renfield accompanies them to Transylvania to prepare for Dracula¿s return. The vampire hunters follow. Renfield hopes in the upcoming confrontation he will be one of the casualties as he loathes his existence, but cannot eliminate himself by his own hand. --- The Dracula legend unfolds from the perspective of Renfield, a servant of the Count and his three wives before turning into a vampire too. Barbara Hambly does a brilliant job of recreating the saga with her unique voice. Locked away in an asylum as many of the events unfold, he sees what is happening through the mind link and that drives him deeper into madness and violence until he makes a devil¿s deal with the three wives. Vampire aficionados will want to add this to their collection. --- Harriet Klausner

My friend loved this book, and recommended it to me. So I got it from the library, and immediately came to like it. I didn't pay attention to Renfield in Dracula, but seeing everything through his eyes was such a nice change. Less boring detail and slow plot like Stoker's novel. This is a new, fresh twist to vampires, and the sane mind of a man lost in darkness. You won't regret reading this! Such a great find!

What a wonderfull read! This certainly goes along well with Dracula, and Victorian humanity as well. I have always been interested in the character of Renfield, and to read such a stirring account of insanity, knowing what you're doing, but not why, it's very interesting. You also get a more profound perspective on the other characters as well, less Victorian pomp, more realistic. Who would have known Renfield loved Wagner and German mythology so much? Fantastic adventures, the supernatural, and a look into the human mind at it's worst. I enjoyed it so much that I'm re-reading Dracula!

I found Renfield a little boring. I hoped it would go deeper into his character. It was not quite the way I would liked him to be. I loved him in Dracula and in all of the movies.
