4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Take on the Dracula Story, October 30, 2012
By L. Collins "lenathediva" (USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME) This review is from: Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Kindle Edition)
Just to get a few things out of the way.
1. I was given this for free in exchange for a review. This is my honest opinion of the book.
2. This book caught my attention so much that I will be purchasing the second in the series.
This is book one of what I believe is a apart of a three book series. This was an interesting take on the typical Dracula story, and I loved it. I am not a fan of this genre. The only other vampire tales that I've read was Twilight. And, let me tell you this is nothing like it. I was interested in the premise of a suicidal Dracula.
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.

Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there. Must be a factory out there producing them like peanut butter cookies.
