Wallachia, 1460: A ferocious horde of vampires sweep across Eastern Europe, destroying everything in their path. Humanity's only hope lies with Vlad Dracula, ruler of Wallachia, member of the Order of the Dragon, and sworn protector of the Holy Church. After enduring an arcane ritual that infuses him with supernatural powers, Vlad sets out the defeat the vampires.

New York City, The Present: Victor Dailey is set to retire as a New York City Homicide Detective. His wife died six months earlier from breast cancer, and now Dailey wants nothing more than to leave New York City behind and get on with his life.

As Dailey goes through the grind of his final weeks on the job, an abandoned ship called the Demetrius is found adrift south of New York City, its mutilated crew stuffed into the hold. That night, New York City is witness to a a series of extremely brutal murders.

The next morning, Dailey and the rest of the force are placed on high alert--the murders must be halted, immediately. Unfortunately, the terror is just beginning because an ancient evil has been unleashed and within two days all of New York City falls under its terrible grip.

As a blizzard hits New York City, Dailey and a band of small survivors rally together in an effort to survive. They are joined by Vlad Tepes, who has spent the past five centuries in purgatory, waiting for the vampire threat to rise again.

With hope fading fast, and the vampires sweeping across the Eastern Seaboard, Vlad, Dailey and the other survivors try to mount an offensive that will defeat the vampires once and for all.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
