URBAN FANTASY: Anno Dracula 4: Johnny Alucard - Kim Newman
Release Date: 06/09/13
Part of the Anno Dracula series, this title is considered alongside I Am Legend and Interview with the Vampire as one of the stand-out vampire stories of the last century.
Kim Newman is an author who really delivers a book on subject matter that is close to his own blood sucking heart. The vampire. LOL What happens within this book is a story that has a lot of genre humour as well as bringing something magical to the fore.
It has cracking characters, top notch prose and when added to a sparkling writing style that is just as addictive as “Drac” all round generates a story that you’ll be more than pleased you sank your teeth into. That said, please remember to read the books that have gone before in this series as otherwise you may find yourself a little confused, Kim, I really am going to have to watch myself around you, as at the moment, I’m feeling like Renfield waiting for attention from his master.
