5.0 Dracula: The Original Flavor

4.0 Dracula: The Modern Prometheus
Dracula: The Modern Prometheus is a retelling of both Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stroker's Dracula with a few new twists by Rafael Chandler. I'm not going to spend time describing the story here because if you've read Frankenstein and Dracula you already know it. The reason you would want ...
