A highly engrossing tale, “Madman in the Mirror” is a story about a man – Henry Johnson – who is raised by a psychopath and forced to watch – even as a baby – his father murder people on a regular basis. He is also abused and brainwashed, turning him into a sociopath. Henry stalks and murders people efficiently – he tells himself that he may be a killer, but he doesn’t want people to suffer. He is haunted by hallucinations, including a specter in his mirror that talks to him.
MADMAN IN THE MIRROR
Dracula: Hearts of Stone
After eons of darkness Dracula has come into the light. He must emerge from his suicidal hole to help mankind fight the bad vampires that prey on humans. The author Piers Anthony (now a vampire) tries to help him claw his way out, at the risk of his own existence. Meanwhile, a timid vampire named Michael falls for Lauren, a courageous red sheriff vampire. Even though Michael is frightened of her, he can’t help but pursue the red sheriff.
A 12-year-old girl named Jenny has turned out to be a vampire killer, protecting the innocent wherever she can. But as the evil ones take notice of her, she realizes that she might survive to her teen years.
It’s a tale of romance, fangs and valour.
DRACULA: HEARTS OF STONE
Georgeanna wrote about Dracula: Hearts of Stone. “Jenny is a serious power for good to be reckoned with and I can't wait to read more about her, Allison, Piers Anthony(yes, the famous author), Michael, Lauren, Boa and Wei, Alexander and Tessy, Moon Diamond and poor Zacharia, and, of course, Dracula.”

I'm finding it kind of unbelievable that you and I are the only people on this whole website who've listed Prospero Lost as read. that's pretty crazy, isn't it?
it was an awesome book. have you read the sequel yet? (interestingly, ten people listed that one. weird.)
I lucked upon your blog. I enjoy reading nursing/nursing student blogs. I am a RN working as Clinical Leader (nurse manager). I am also an avid reader (or used to be) so I followed your link here. Now I have my own shelf, but have been driving my boys crazy as they have not been able to get on the computer. Ha!
I lived for 7 years in Kansas while my husband and I were in the military. I'm originally from California, spent a year in Washington also...at Fort Lewis Air Force Base. LOL...now I live in North Carolina. I just thought it was funny how much we have in common!
I see that you have many of my books on your shelf. Would love to know what you thought of Inheritance....I love Indian writers but I felt ignorant of the post Imperial Nepal scene to truly enjoy thebook. The end was great...the return of the native to what is known even though its stifling!
BTW, I don't know if I ever showed you the picture of myself that I'm using for Shelfari, but that's Tom Morello's eye in the upper right -- cracks me up every time I see it. I went to an Audioslave concert and he tried to take a picture of the two of us. As you can see, he missed, but it's one of my all time favorite 'what was it like to meet X rock star' moments.
