When nineteen-year-old John Shaw returns from the trenches of World War I, he is haunted by nightmares—not only of the battlefield, but of the strange, cruel and impossible feats of his regiment’s commander, Quincey Harker.
Harker’s ferocity knows no limits, and his strength is superhuman. At first John blames his bloody nightmares on trench fever. But when Harker appears in England and begins wooing John’s sister, John must confront the truth—and stop Harker from continuing Dracula’s bloodline.

Being a big blooeline of Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula, I tend to be very skeptical and critical of any that try to extend Stoker’s universe in some way. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this novel and greatly enjoyed reading it!
Just like Stoker’s Dracula, Bloodline is written in epistolary form meaning that instead of your typical prose, it’s written in the form of letters, diary entries, newspapers, etc. Bloodline also begins about 35 years where Stoker’s left off and opens up with year-old John Shaw who is haunted by his experiences in World War I. The setting of the novel is interesting and creates a fantastic atmosphere of suspense and horror, the characters are compelling, and the story itself hooks you right in within the first couple of pages.
I would highly recommend reading this one! I loved gloodline book–as well as its sequel “Bloodline Book 2: Reckoning”–but I just want people to know, it’s a young adult book.
If you’re looking for a book that is a sequel to Dracula–the Bram Stoker original–look no further than the one written by Stoker’s great-grandson, Dacre Stoker. That is titled “Dracula: But back to “Bloodline”–absolutely entertaining, great price, and I gobbled it up eagerly.
I’d recommend it for people who like books about vampires–if you don’t, then don’t bother reading the book. Also, I’d recommend it for people who have either read the Bram Stoker original or who have a thorough knowledge of it or else you’ll be somewhat lost on how the characters are related and the back-story. It has a great plot, leaves you questioning until the very end, and there is an unexpected twist!
Read the sequel, too, if you enjoyed this one! Sure, it was used, I just am very finicky about stickers on my books, particularly ones that leave behind a residue. The stickers weren’t even from the seller which was why I was annoyed. They should have been removed prior to selling it to me. Must look for some WD One person found this helpful.
I too read this book in under 2 days after work and chores. I’ve never read the actual Dracula book but I did find this to be very interesting and kept my interest the entire way through. I didn’t feel the ending disappointing but it did leave me hanging and having a need to read the 2nd book. I did find Quincy to be the star of the show, depsit what he is, I found I loved his character.
I recommend this book if you are looking for a good story that you just can’t put down until it’s done. This book is amazing. I recommend it to carh of my friends looking for a book to read or to anyone who wants to read a good story. Very few books compare to the amount of detail, plot twists, and ability bloodlije make you want to keep reading that this book has.
For the price, you can’t really beat it. I got it for a penny and it was in perfect condition. Interesting layout, I like the concept.
This is a re-read because I just had to have it! Read it over 5 times. Still loving this book.
Bloodline (Bloodline, #1) by Kate Cary
The story began really well. I’m not a fan of epistolary stories, but this grabbed me from the start with the setting and tone. I was intrigued by the character of Quincey Harker and sympathetic to the growing horrors John Shaw faced on the battlefront from enemies and a comrade in arms.
When the setting shifts from the battlefield back to England and the romance element takes over the pace starts to slow. I was still engaged with what was going on enough to keep reading, but when the setting shifted again–retracing the storyline of the original Dracula–things went off track for me.
The revelations that come fast and furious undermined my sympathy for one of the main characters and one of the original heroes of Dracula. I wish the story had stayed in England and gone in an original direction–the author had done a good job of laying the foundation for a fresh follow-up to the classic story without the need to actively re-visit it.
Still, I finished the book it’s a very quick read and will probably read the next to find out happened to the remaining characters. And that disappointed me.
Dracula was killed in the original. Who then had a son, Jonathan Harker. Really confused on that one. The story itself progresses in nearly the same way Dracula does and at that point I was bored with it all.
At this point I might as well just re-read Dracula. This is the same story with characters by different names. See all 24 reviews.
