Product description


A modern Gothic masterpiece, and one of the finest vampire novels of recent years. A perfect companion piece to one of the most pivotal novels ever written Ginger Nuts of Horror

'A boldly inventive sequel to Dracula rips along with a sustained energy and verve, twisting and turning all the way to the supposed editor's epilogue' Times Literary Supplement

"In style, story content, and characterization, Dracula's Child is truly the sequel to Bram Stoker's Dracula, succeeding where other, more famous attempts failed" New York Journal of Books
"Inventive and spooky" Mark Gatiss, co-creator of the hit BBC series Dracula and Sherlock

'[A] fitting tribute to Bram Stoker's Dracula, matching the original's tone and epistolary form with this choice sequel set slightly over a decade after the original's conclusion. . . Barnes's modern sensibilities shine through, the action and intrigue delight. This adventurous and dread-inducing tale will have readers hooked' Publishers Weekly

"[A] thorough tribute to Bram Stoker's original, written in the style of Stoker's prose and imagining a continuation of the story this is a must-read for Dracula fans" Den of Geek

This epic tale of madness, temptation, and political scandal set in early-twentieth-century England strikes a resonant chord with today's political climate Booklist

'A patchwork of dark thrills, woven skilfully from new and familiar voices - Dracula's Child is a macabre delight' Aliya Whiteley, author of The Beauty

It's a monumental achievement. The tale is engrossing, the tone is spot-on. Stephen Gallagher, author (The Authentic William James) and TV writer (Doctor Who)

Fiendishly plotted and full of sinister invention . . . a thoroughly modern re-imagining of the Count's undying menace Richard T Kelly, author of The Knives and The Possessions of Doctor Forest

Gave me genuine chills and put J.S. Barnes on my list of go-to authors British Fantasy Society

Bram Stoker's classic continues... It's just as dark, evocative, sensual, and horrific. A masterpiece Horror Tree

"J.S. Barnes' sequel to Bram Stoker's horror classic is a terrific read...I've not hung on to a book so tightly for many years, its grip so intense that it wouldn't let me go. At the end you take a deep breath and wonder where that time went, albeit time very well spent Sci-Fi Bulletin

"Genuinely frightening...There are striking moments of originality, where Barnes seamlessly merges modern sensibilities with a Stoker-like writing style...Immense fun and after decades of parody- manages to make the Count scary again FrightFest
