Another novel

Postby Shish-kabob-Forrest » Tue Apr 10, 2007 8:41 am

I found another "Real Dracula" Novel and did some research in to it and read part of it.
This one is quite a bit different then mine. It focuses more broadly on Vladislav IIIs life, covering his childhood through death and only follows the basic story of the mans life and holds accurate to the customs of the time and IMHO, better portrays his general personality but is otherwise fictitious where my novel focuses strictly on his military life from his rise to power up until his death and is built entirely around documented historical facts and allegations with only minor added details around them to fill in the gaps. It also appears to be more energetic.
Bottom line, both stories are necessary and neither really fills the same gap as the other. I myself intend to buy a copy. ... e&n=283155

Though my upcoming novel: "The Shield of Christendom" is just as tight to historical facts as TWAA, it is probably a little more like the above novel in the sense of going much more up-close and personal with the time and culture and is set over a more broad portion of Janos Hunyadi's life and actually starts before he was born. It's more of the "Brave Heart" that you have been looking for Vlad.
Blessed is he who shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is his brother's keeper. And I will strike down those who attempt to destroy my brothers and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
