Told in a series of first-person missives and reports, and set in 1890s Transylvania and England, Dracula is the source of every vampire story told since, the founding text of the entire genre. Count Vlad Dracula—as Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, Mina Murray, and Dr. Abraham Van Helsing learn—is a dangerous and powerful creature who’s lived for hundreds of years and possesses powers no mortal can claim. Bent on creating legions of Un-Dead followers in populous London, Dracula must be stopped—but how?
