Title: The Hounds of Dracula
Author: Ken Johnson
An ancient crypt in Transylvania lies freshly opened.
A monstrous creature and its master move through the night.
The fangs of the evil past are bared for a new generation of victims …
… as the most terrifying of all curses comes forth to claim not only man but beast for the legion of the undead.
A fun quick vampire novel. It has the lore down perfectly and the vampires and their vampire dogs are like vampires are meant to be – sunlight will kill them. A fast read with lots of thrills and chills. A slightly predictable but fun book.
Worth the effort to source a copy out of a used book shop. Especially for fans of both traditional vampires and fans of Cujo. If you think that dog is scary, wait ‘til you face a vampire dog!
My Rating: 4 stars
