    With the versatile voice talent of William Gaminara, acclaimed novelist Kim Newman explores the darkest depths of a reinvented Victorian London. It is 1888, and Queen Victoria has remarried, taking as her new consort the Wallachian Prince infamously known as Count Dracula. Peppered with familiar characters from Victorian history and fiction, the novel tells the story of vampire Geneviève Dieudonné and British spy Charles Beauregard as they strive to solve the mystery of the Ripper murders.

    A brand-new edition with an additional novella, this sequel to Anno Dracula will keep you mesmerised. It is 1918 and Dracula is commander-in-chief of the armies of Germany and Austria-Hungary. The war of the great powers in Europe is also a war between the living and the dead. As ever, the Diogenes Club is at the heart of British Intelligence and Charles Beauregard and his protégé Edwin Winthrop go head-to-head with the lethal vampire flying machine that is The Bloody Red Baron...

    Excellent

    Along with Anno Dracula (and Dracula Cha Cha Cha) this is irresistible work from Kim Newman. I had only read his seminal Nightmare Movies and had no ..Show More »

    Rome 1959. Along the Via Veneto, the living and the dead enjoy la dolce vita, as the vampires, intellectuals, conspirators, jet-setters and swindlers of Europe gather in an endless round of indulgence and gaiety, dancing giddily to the music of the Dracula Cha Cha Cha. The Vampire King, in Italian exile, is to be married to a Moldavian princess, and rumours circulate that his wedding will be the first move in a campaign to return him to his position as Lord of the Undead and a power in the world.

    Another successful tale of myth and fact

    I would recommend this book. It works as a standalone listen, but to appreciate all of its details and nuances the two previous titles in the series ..Show More »

    Dracula Comes to New York: Kim Newman returns to one of the great bestselling vampire tales of the modern era. Considered alongside I Am Legend and Interview with the Vampire as one of the stand-out vampire stories of the last century - this brand-new novel is the first in over a decade from the remarkable and influential Anno Dracula series. Newman's dark and impish tale begins with a single question: What if Dracula had survived his encounters with Bram Stoker's Dr. John Seward and enslaved Victorian England?

    Fun, but goes on a bit

    I've enjoyed the previous books in this series and did rather enjoy some of the skewed takes Newman has on late 20th Century pop-culture. Overall, how..Show More »
