Blake Crouch, J.A. Konrath, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson are four of the sickest 'motherhuggers' I've had the pleasure to read. The introduction to 'Draculas' warns the reader, "If you're easily disturbed, have a weak stomach, or are prone to nightmares, stop reading right now." Man, they weren't kidding! No one could say I'm any of the three -- on a normal day. But when you're reading 'Draculas', your days aren't normal. And your nights are especially freaky! In the four days I spent with these monsters, I dreamed of them every night -- and not in a warm, fuzzy, Robert-Pattinson-taking-me-out-for-a-rootbeer-float kind of way.

Other reviewers have done a fine job of synopsizing the story, so I'll skip that part. There's really not much to it, anyway. Hideous vampires run rampant in a small town's hospital, and precious few live to tell about it: This is their story. If you're looking for a profound message in the pages of 'Draculas', you're looking in the wrong place. This book is a gore-fest! But it's not limited to gore. There's actual substance behind those ropy strands of bloody drool. The authors did an amazing job of making the reader actually care about the characters, even the vampires. This is no easy feat when said vampire is getting ready to chomp into the throat of your favorite human. And the humor infused throughout the story really helped to ease my thrumming heartbeat. There were almost as many laugh-out-loud moments as there were bile-inducing moments. And, best of all, there were very few cheap shots -- the humor was unique, solid and honest. Most importantly in a novel about supernatural activity, 'Draculas' does an excellent job of 'legitimizing' the backstory to make it believable to modern audiences.

Vile pun aside, I enjoyed this book a lot. It delivers exactly what the authors promised: in-your-face, gory, vampire horror. I am not a huge fan of gory horror, but I enjoy it when done well. And Draculas was done well.

So what was good? For starters the initial concept. I won't spoil it, but the trigger for the appearance of the vampires was cool and unexpected.

The writing was also good. The authors clearly put in some effort with editing and it paid off. I suspect having four of them made editing a lot more effective. The book had the kind of prose that makes you want to skip sentences because it is so effectively creating tension that you don't want to wait to find out what's going to happen. Exactly right for this kind of horror thriller.

The best thing about the book in my opinion is the characters. Quite a few compelling characters, with a good balance of cliche and uniqueness. In fact, the well-drawn characters and their motivations gave the book more of a thriller feel in many places than a straight horror feel. Along with the oodles of gore, I cared about the characters.

So was anything not done well? I give the book a really solid four stars, so everything was done pretty well. I suppose I would have enjoyed more history and context for the vampires themselves, but I think others will like the fact that the vampires are mostly just vicious and out of control. Just personal preference.

Bottom line, if you like horror, or you like thrillers and don't mind gore along with it, you need to buy Draculas. At $2.99,it should be a no-brainer.

Draculas would give Quentin Tarantino the vapors!

Spawned by an ancient virus, their talons click on the linoleum of the Blessed Crucifixion Hospital as they work their bloody way from the maternity ward to pediatrics. Layer on layer of terror accompanied by that creepy clicking sound. I couldn't put the book down long enough to get a second bowl of buttered popcorn. This is the real deal. How vampires should behave. No suave George Hamilton vamps, no gentle Edward Cullen, these creatures know how to get under your skin and stay there. Carnage and heroism from multiple points of view take place in the most vulnerable spot on earth - a hospital. Where can you find the most blood? Same place. Four great authors... I've always enjoyed the brotherhood of horror writers. They're some of the nicest people on earth. Maybe that's because they get it all out there on the page? Congrats to Blake Crouch, Joe Konrath, F. Paul Wilson, and Jeff Strand. And thanks for the review copy. A completely engrossing, satisfying, wet-horror read. I loved it!
Now if I could just turn out the lights.

P.S. I've always enjoyed the brotherhood of horror writers. They are some of the nicest people on earth - generous with advice and encouragement. Maybe they're so kind because they exorcise all their demons on the printed page. After writing DRACULAS, these four authors should be as gentle as kittens.

Want to get in the mood for Halloween? Get this book! DRACULAS is a crazy, no-holds-barred, totally over-the-top good time! It's a horror novel that delivers grotesque terror after grotesque terror at an unrelenting pace, yet it's also got humor galore. It's definitely not for the squeamish, but horror fans will delight - the gore-fest never wanes and there is a wild dose of insanity mixed in for flavor. As one of the authors (Joe) sez in the bonus content: it's a "balls-to-the-wall monster book" - oh yeah, it is!

This was co-written by four authors, and yet the voice is perfectly consistent the entire way through. Kudos! It's also got a great ending that leaves the door wide open for a sequel. I'd love to see where else they can take this story, there are tons of tantalizing possibilities that I hope the authors fully explore down the road.

The bonus content was very interesting, entertaining & content-rich. I loved reading about the creative process and the (disturbed) minds behind this ;) They're a funny bunch! This gets me excited for future kindle releases that will continue to break the standard book mold. There are short stories, alternate endings, deleted scenes, excerpts from other novels, and a 'making-of' section. This book gives the reader a ton of bang for their buck! Sign me up for DRACULAS 2, WEREWOLVES & MUMMIES - can't wait!!

Note: my review is based on the complete novel.
