Bram Stoker (1847-1912), an Irish novelist and short story writer, was known during his lifetime as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned, but is best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula.
Powers of Darkness is an entertaining story and during the
read, it is easy to forget what it's supposed to be--a
translation--and think of it as an entirely new novel . . . to
quote from the original: 'There are mysteries men can only guess
at, which age by age they may solve only in part.' Powers of
Darkness does exactly that, while offering new mysteries in
their place.--Toni V. Sweeney
Powers of Darkness is an incredible discovery that serves as a return to form for the vampire story, giving the Count and his famous Transylvanian castle centre stage once more, and scaring us all senseless in the process.
