Who was the man behind the legend?
In Prince Drakulya, Paul Doherty traces the life of the infamous figure in a thrilling mystery. Perfect for fans of C.J Sansom and Ellis Peters.
Dracula has always been a fascinating yet terrifying figure. But the legend of the human vampire is based on horrifying reality: Dracula (or more properly Drakulya) was a real person, a Prince of Wallachia (now part of Romania) who struggled for personal and political survival during the sinister intrigues of I5th century Europe. Discover him through Rhodros - the friend who knew him best.
Rhodros accurately describes Drakulya's influences: his harsh imprisonment by the Ottoman Turks, his manipulation by the subtle and brilliant Ottoman court, and his lust for vengeance against the nobles responsible for the deaths of his father and brother. When Drakulya finally breaks free from his captors' influence he returns as ruler of his own country to wreak horrifying revenge...
Don't miss the gripping sequel: The Lord Count Drakulya.
