Fanfiction has gotten a bad rap as a lot of it is badly written garage. But not this book. If you love Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula, you will not be disappointed. I was impressed by how well-written the story was, the research involved, and the professional editing and proofreading. Rare commodities in Indie books or small presses. I did feel there was a tad bit too much background and detail. I found myself nodding off a few times with all the nautical terms.
As for the characters, there was a wide range of them, from different backgrounds, that happened to be on that ill-fated trip. It was confusing at first about who was who. Especially when being referred to by their positrons on the crew, such as first or second. But as one by one, they met their horrific fates, I felt for each one of them. And horrific they were. Yes, he threw in spiders. ECK! You can’t help but fell sorry for Harrington, Swales, and Ekaterina. They were just pawns in Dracula’s game. Speaking of pawns, Jonathan Harker, Lucy, Mina, and Renshaw were woven seamlessly into the storyline, anchoring this tale firmly into the legend of Dracula.
If you love reading literary masterpieces written in the vein of true Gothic horror, you really need to buy this book. I give it 4 fangs.
We meet the mysterious Englishman, Harrington a scholar with something to hide, a beautiful Romanian stowaway, eager to follow her lover, and the strange figure of Swales, ship's cook and something more, among others as Lamoreux weaves an almost hypnotic tale within the cramped, claustrophobic confines of the decks of the Demeter. Having read the original book by Stoker, and watched many film versions of the Dracula tale, I've often wondered what must have taken place on board the Demeter in those fateful days leading up to Dracula's srrival on England's windswept coast. Thanks to Doug Lamoreux, I now have the answer!

I absolutely loved this book. My only regret is that I read Dracula many times before I found this book.Read more
