About This Book

The daddy of all vampires, the Count who began it all

He is deathly pale. His fingernails are cut to sharp points. His teeth protrude menacingly from his mouth in clouds of rancid breath. Yet even Count Dracula's unnerving appearance and the frightened reaction of the local peasants fail to warn Jonathan Harker, a young man from England, about his host. Little does Jonathan know that this is a land where babies are snatched for their blood and wolves howl menacingly from the forest, where reality is far more frightening than superstition. What's more, it's going to be up to him to stop the world's most bloodthirsty predator.

  • The Jewel of Seven Stars

    The Jewel of Seven Stars
    "Hither the Gods come not at any summons. The Nameless One has insulted them and is forever alone. Go not nigh, lest their vengeance wither you away!" The warning was inscribed on the entrance of the hidden tomb, forgotten for millennia in the sands of mystic Egypt. Then the archaeologists and grave robbers came in search of the fabled Jewel of Seven Stars, which they found clutched in the hand of the mummy. Few heeded the ancient warning, until all who came in contact with the Jewel began to die in a mysterious and violent way--with the marks of a strangler around their neck. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

    The Lady of the Shroud

    The Lady of the Shroud
    When Roger Melton passes away, he unexpectedly leaves a substantial fortune to his nephew, Rupert Sent Leger. But Rupert must fulfill one condition if he is to inherit: he must live in his uncle’s castle in the Land of the Blue Mountains for one year. It is here, at Castle Vissarion, that Rupert encounters a mysterious woman cloaked in a wet shroud who is seeking refuge in the middle of the night. Rupert helps the beautiful woman, but she disappears before he can learn much about her. Discovering the identity of this ethereal creature will change Rupert’s life forever. Presented as a series of letters and diary entries, The Lady of the Shroud was written in much the same fashion as author Bram Stoker’s more famous novel, Dracula, and represents Stoker’s unique and haunting writing style. Due to its unexpected storyline, The Lady of the Shroud has become a favorite within the gothic and horror genre first popularized at the turn of the twentieth century.

    Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in French, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.
