- John Williams, The New York Times Book Review
“Our familiar, beloved count has a wintry doppelgänger, thanks to this strange, pleasing curiosity of a book.”
- The Guardian
“This early translation of Bram Stoker's landmark novel, translated into English for the first time, provides an illuminating look at an act of literary interpretation . . . De Roos's abundant annotations are insightful, and the translation, although pulpier than Stoker's original, is a fascinating gloss on a literary classic.”
- Publishers Weekly
“Powers of Darkness is an incredible discovery that serves as a return to form for the vampire story, giving the Count and his famous Transylvanian castle centre stage once more, and scaring us all senseless in the process.”
- The National Post
“Powers of Darkness is an entertaining story and during the read, it is easy to forget what it’s supposed to be―a translation―and think of it as an entirely new novel . . . to quote from the original: ‘There are mysteries men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.’ Powers of Darkness does exactly that, while offering new mysteries in their place.”
- Toni V. Sweeney, The New York Journal of Books
“A completely new look at this classic text that fans of the book and genre won’t want to miss.”
- San Francisco Book Review
“This thoroughly documented work is recommended for Dracula scholars, and general readers of horror will also enjoy the story.”
- Library Journal
