When Frances West’s kitchen stove blew out into her front garden she thought it was a gas leak, until she was kidnapped by Drakkar the vampire.
She escapes from the dungeons of a crumbling Transylvanian castle, gets herded by wolves, has a terrifying battle with saw-toothed raptors from hell, contends with mindless zombies and a screaming blizzard in her efforts to thwart the vampire's plans.
