Bram Stoker wanted fame. What he got was pure evil.
In late Victorian London, Bram Stoker is an unnoticed author who longs for celebrity and recognition. His ignored writings have left him anonymous. When Vlad Tepes, an eccentric European aristocrat, poses a dangerous proposition, the frustrated artist can’t help but listen. In trade for a simple exchange of services, Tepes promises to give him the information he needs to write a book about the nature of evil that will shock the world. Hungry for a successful book, Stoker reluctantly agrees.
Sir Henry Irving, England’s leading Shakespearean actor and Stoker’s employer, begins to notice an unpredictable nature in his struggling friend. When Stoker’s uncharacteristic behavior jeopardizes a deal between Irving and Sherlock Holmes creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, the creative masterminds begin to investigate the source of Stoker’s preoccupation. What they find shakes them to the core: malevolent darkness, blood, and murder. The evidence begins to mount that they may be dealing with a real vampire.
The chase is on to save Stoker and his family. Failure could result in the loss of their lives… and their souls.
