“Newman’s use of Edgar Allan Poe, hired to write an official biography of the vampiric Red Baron...stands out as a truly fantastic idea” Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi blog

First off I have to say that the Anno Dracula series is one of the greatest fantasy book series out there. The plots, the characters, and, last but not least, the crossover references to all things vampires - books, movies, etc.
And this is where the Kindle comes in. I have had so much fun using the Kindle's ability to access Google for tracking down all of the characters in these books. It so enriches the storyline as well as introduce me to all of the source materials. Reading a paper book now has become so 1 dimensional without the direct access to the internet.
While I own and use a Kindle, the software best used on a tablet or smart phone for full search capabilities.
This series is fun to read. The author blends in so many historical characters it's amazing. Having read the original Dracula years (and years) ago, it's wonderful to see an alternative universe with the characters. Well worth reading the whole series!
