The classic vampire story that started it all gets new life for a generation of connected teens

18-year-old Jonathan Harker is diagnosed with a rare blood disorder after visiting a Romanian Count. His girlfriend Mina and a pre-med student named Van Helsing team up to investigate the source of the disease. The teenagers discover a horrifying truth: the Count is a vampire. The harrowing events unfold through emails, text messages, web pages, Twitter feeds, and instant messaging-the natural modernization of Bram Stoker's original Dracula, which was written in letters, diary entries, and news clippings.

"Bold, innovative , and warped. . .an insanely imaginative tour de force."
-James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author

"Black expertly interweaves story and technology in this timely Dracula tale."
-Rebecca Maizel, author of infinite Days

This is book is good, not great, but good. I really enjoyed how all of it was emails or texts or browsers. I love books that that so this, for me, was a literal feast. However, this book progressed too fast and the relationships in it was too fast. Overall everything seemed a bit too unrealistic for fiction and too simple and flat

Extremely fast read! Really neat little book. It takes the very basics of the story of Dracula and modernizes it. The whole story is told by text, emails, and web screen shots. Struggling YA readers might enjoy this.

I dunno if you could actually consider this good.. It was kind of hard to understand if you havent read the original novel. I normally read things like the Da Vinci Code so this was a interesting twist.

Surprisingly a nice twist on the story.. An excellent introduction to the actual story that does not include the word "Twilight".

I was impressed with this book!
