Product description

Review

A visceral, gripping tale of life, blood, loss, and painful self-discovery, I, Dracula reclaims the vampire’s narrative, giving him his own voice and fleshing out his riveting story in Transylvania. D.S. Crowe’s supple, mesmerising prose is historically lucid and culturally-aware, deeply steeped in Romania’s history and traditions, and moving the Gothic beyond its exoticising tropes. But it’s also poetic, sensuous, and raw – and, with clever and subtle nods to Bram Stoker’s original, it paints Dracula as a tragic figure, as cruel as he is tender, forever wavering between the human and the monstrous. Dr. Madeline Potter - Dracula scholar 

An emotionally resonant and deeply immersive portrait of a being searching for its place in the world. Atmospheric, wonderfully detailed and beautifully written. Jason Figgis - Film Director


Rich in details of the treacherous fifteenth century Transylvania, this is a powerful reimagining of Dracula as a tragic character looking for a meaning in his cursed life. D.S. Crowe's prose, atmospheric and evocative, keeps the reader entangled in the vampire's heart-breaking story, constantly torn between compassion and repulsion. Conor Kostick - best-selling author of Epic


What intrigued me in Crowe’s original writing was the modernity of the psychology embedded in the character of Dracula. It is a beautifully written, informative novel, which when viewed with the added lens of 21st century psychological tussles and war, brings the much-maligned, undocumented character of Vlad Dracul to life. Fidelma Kelly - author of Sweet Lemons

A fresh and intriguing take on Dracula that cleverly portrays him as both a brutal monster and a relatable damaged being; Crowe has us continuously torn between hating him and wanting to offer him the love he so deeply desires. This conflict of emotions keeps the reader captivated through the many great scenes of dark horror and brutality intermingled with insights into the vampire’s vulnerability. It is a great story well told; a good deep yarn for those of us who have no huge former knowledge of Dracula and also for those who do. Vanessa Pearse - author of Beneath the Image

Dark, atmospheric and visceral, I, Dracula offers an unexpected insight into a character the whole world thinks they know and own. A beautifully woven gothic tale about a tumultuous life lived in pursuit of love and acceptance. Ulrike Ascher - author of Magic of the Elements

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant fusion of the dark & brooding historical Vlad and his evil fictional namesake.
By Karen Selway on 15 May 2022
I read this in two sittings. D S Crowe has beautifully recreated the world of the historical inspiration for Stoker's Dracula, Vlad Tepes and brought him back to life in all it's horror and sadness, fortunately though only in black and white on the page.
It's a brilliant fusion between the real Vlad Dracul and Stoker's creation. Who, by the way was ignorant of Vlad Tepes existence and thought Dracul was the Romanian word for devil.
This has folklore, horror and history and has left me wanting to learn more about this fascinating historical character and the fictional ones he inspired.
