Bram Stoker's Revenge

Must read 🏆

Wonderfully written! An unusual take on a classic that excites and entertains.

Over my many years of reading, I've probably delved into over five-hundred novels based on Bram Stoker's brilliant story, but I have never read anything in which Stoker is the main character of his own story. It's wonderful!


I admit, I presumed this another vampire novel, not unlike its predecessors-which was perfectly fine with me-but this is NOT like any of the vampires novels I've previously read. The author has developed a fantasmal novel which is somewhat akin to the extraordinary happenings of Forest Gump, the mysterious workings of Sherlock and the addicting backstory of Dracula. Basically, an array of historical events blended perfectly into an extraordinary horror novel. I was bound to this novel and couldn't wait to pick it every evening, after a long day.


The story line is fascinating, unique, and well-written. The characters are lovable, the setting fits perfectly, and the chiller factor is an eight. Allen throws a few loops in to keep you on your toes and there were moments of emotional turmoil, for me. It was quite easy to bond with the heroes and there was never a lag. Everything wrapped up with skill and I look forward to reading what this author has next. Great read!

I'm an avid reader with an open mind. I never know what type of book I want to curl up with, or about whom I want to read. One day it's Eleanor of Aquitaine, the next it's vampires and dragons. That's the exciting world of literature and I'm happy to be one of its inhabitants!
