Dracula is among the best-known men in the world, yet arguably the least understood. While many stories have been told about both the real and the fictional Dracula, Foia’s account benefits from the unique perspective of a Transylvanian native. Under his pen, Dracula Chronicles finally pierces the veil of mystery that has shrouded the Wallachian king for over 500 years. The multivolume historical novel unfolds in vivid detail Dracula’s metamorphosis from a naïve prince to the ruthless law-and-order king whose deeds have spawned the most enduring vampire legend. Taking place on the backdrop of the dying Middle Ages and the blossoming of the Renaissance, Dracula Chronicles is replete with passions, ambitions, betrayals, and revenge.
Book Three of the series, “House of War“, shows Prince Vlad, a.k.a. Dracula, stranded in the Asian reaches of the Ottoman Empire. While plotting his escape, Vlad’s friendship with Sultan Murad’s two sons gives him undreamed-of insights into the workings of the empire. As deadly dangers crowd upon Vlad, the sultan secures his safety in an unusual way. Vlad’s idea for repaying the sultan’s kindness could change the course of history.
