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 One of the series, “Son of the Dragon“, provides a first ever origin story of the man whose fame has survived for over 500 years and has reached even the most remote places of the planet. Book One of the series, begins Dracula’s epic journey that will ultimately see the young prince become the famed strongman, warrior, and object of women’s interest who has conquered the imagination of millions. Inquisitive, skilled at arms, and often reckless, young Dracula seeks out danger to prove his readiness to be a man. An avid reader of history and lover of languages, Dracula uses his knowledge and wits to overcome impossible odds facing him. Then, in a single impulsive step he propels himself into a hostile world capable of devouring even the strongest men.

      Thank you, Monica.

      I promise it will be an exciting “Hero’s Jouney”. Having interested and curious people like you come along, will give me the necessary energy to unfold this amazing, never before told, story.

    Hi Victor,

    I really enjoyed your book! So sorry to respond to you late as I did read it last year. I thoroughly enjoyed your character building and descriptions. The book is very well researched, but entertaining at the same time. The only reason I have not recommended it for a book club book is that you really have to, and want to, read all 3 books. I have endorsed it with my book club, so I hope it helps. Rebecca

    “Son of the Dragon” was a fun read! A really good story woven into the fascinating history of Romania, Hungary, the Balkans, the Ottoman Empire and the rest of the region in the 15th Century. I kept flipping back to the information in the back of the book and looking things up on Wikipedia while I was reading. A great page turner and an interesting history lesson at the same time! I’m very much looking forward to “House of the Crescent Moon” and the rest of the series! Thank you!

    5 Star Review

    I read this book twice. It was alot to take in so I had to read slowly LOL I can certainly sense the surroundings and lots of new info to me. I like that Victor took the time to research Vlad. The way they talked sometimes felt like 20 century talk . I liked the reactions of Vlad and the people and sometimes I had to giggle. It was slow reading at times, no offense. I ain’t bored by the books so far I just look forward to reading about his rule .
