Dr Joseph Aymon returns to Transylvania. Out to prove the existence of vampires, he can’t wait to come face-to-face with the Undead. He also aims to find Bella, his one and only love, who disappeared years ago. Will he find redemption, or plain, unadulterated horror?
It is 1914. Dr Joseph Aymon returns to his youthful haunts in Transylvania where he used to accompany the famous vampire-killer, Professor Van Helting, on his vampire hunts. In a world fast throwing off the superstitious clutches of medieval terrors and mythical monsters, Jacob is on a personal quest to prove the existence of vampires. The new sciences, with their cold exploration of the demons which lurk in the recesses of the mind, have mercilessly dismissed the old certainties of evil and purity which Joseph and his master still cling to. Joseph is eager to re-habilitate his and the Professor’s reputation. He can’t wait to come face-to-face with the Undead, and prove all his detractors wrong. It is also his aim to discover the whereabouts of Bella, his first and only love, who vanished years ago, in mysterious circumstances.
His quest brings him into contact with a host of characters: the daunting, chilling figure of Count Drace; his voluptuous wife, the Countess; her thin-lipped, haughty, and depraved niece, Grimelda; the enigmatic, beguiling figure of the Mother Superior of the local convent; Thomas, the man-servant harboring a shocking secret . . . Will Jacob find what he’s looking for, and, if he does, will that discovery bring him release, justification, more derision, or plain, unadulterated horror?
A vampire story like no other . . .
