This series of Gothic novels establishes the original 19th Century vampire hunter, General Spielsdorf, as one of the main protagonists in a new series of bloody adventures.
The continuing story traverses centuries of vampire lore and further reveals new aspects to the origin of the Nosferatu. The novels cover several eras, from ancient history to the 19th and later centuries. The author has also used details of historic events to enhance and develop the plot throughout the novels.
To some extent the books are an ongoing account of the Vampire as originally presented in Victorian literature, paying due homage to Le Fanu and Stoker. The novels deliberately mirror an earlier time in Gothic novel writing and recreate the original evil characters of ancient vampires, including those of Carmilla Karnstein and Vlad Dracula, for a modern readership.
