Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!
Bram Stoker released Dracula in 1897, and horror novels have never been the same.
The story, told in the format of a series of letters from the various protagonists, follows Dracula’s attempt to reach England from his Transylvania castle to begin his reign of terror. It begins with Jonathan Harker, an English solicitor, visiting Count Dracula on the premise of providing support for a real estate transaction. It only goes downhill from there for Harker.
Dracula makes it to England and tracks down and converts Lucy Westenra, close friend of Harker’s fiancée, Mina Murray. Jonahthan Harker, Mina Murray, Dr. John Seward, Arthur Holmwood, Quincey Morris, and Abraham Van Helsing join together to try to save Lucy from Dracula’s clutches and stop his blood-thirsty exploits.
This well-crafted tale of love, adventure, and danger stands the test of time and continues to inspire storytellers today.
