Description

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 "What happened?" "Not sure. I was fine when I went to bed." "But?" "But I dreamed that someone got into my room." "Who?" "I don't remember his face. He was tall, thin, pale…I was paralyzed. And then my neck hurt and my mouth was full of…" "Of what?" "Blood. My mouth was full of blood."

About the Author

Bekka Black

After a childhood often spent without electricity and running water, Bekka escaped the beautiful wilderness of Talkeetna, Alaska, for indoor plumbing and 24/7 electricity in Berlin, Germany. Used to the cushy lifestyle, she discovered the Internet in college and has been wasting time on it ever since (when not frittering away her time on her iPhone). Somehow, she manages to write novels, including the award-winning Hannah Vogel mystery series set, in all places, 1930s Berlin. The series has received numerous starred reviews and the first book, A Trace of Smoke, was chosen as a Writer's Digest Notable debut. She lives in Hawaii with her husband, son, two cats, and too many geckoes to count. iDrakula is her first cell phone novel.
