Japan, 1899. A party of vampires – exiled from Britain by Prince Dracula – seeks refuge in Tokyo and are confined to Yokai Town, a ghetto where the Meiji Emperor keeps the country’s vampires – bizarre creatures as different from European nosferatu as they are from living humans. Dr Geneviève Dieudonné, Kostaki, a soldier, Daniel Dravot, a spy, and Christina Light, a revolutionary princess, try to survive in Yokai Town as forces within and outside its walls threaten to destroy the newcomers and the long-time residents. What secret lies under the Temple of One Thousand Monsters?

Reading this series since: 2000 Likes: Dracula Cha Cha Cha Dislikes: Johnny Alucard This book was a risky proposition. It’s a greatly expanded prologue to another novel we know is coming, it’s the fifth book in an extremely elaborate series, and it’s a prequel to nearly everything in that series....

I couldn't wait to read this as I liked the other books in the Anno Dracula series. I don't know if it was just me but it took me ages to get into the story, but once it got going I really enjoyed it.

https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres... (ARC provided by the publisher and voluntarily reviewed) I’ve read very little by this author and never heard of Anno Dracula before but the premise intrigued me. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I definitely want to read more of the series. I wasn’t sure what...

Note: This really is closer to a 3.5, but the pure insanity of the last several chapters moved me to round up instead of down. Anno Dracula has become an odd series for me. The first three books were all great in their own way, with Cha Cha Cha serving as a satisfying ending point. However, more b...

Kim Newman's first Anno Dracula novel was released in 1992 which put it in the vanguard of the "new wave" of modern vampire fiction - a genre so well established now that it is easy to forget the hiatus of the late 70's and 80's, when those seeking stories of the best of monsters had to really di...

Kim Newman returns to the world of Anno Dracula but throws something of a curveball by setting it shortly after the original Anno Dracula. It's 1899 and Genevieve Dieudonne is on a ship with a bunch of vampires who are exiled from Dracula's England. Gene and her fellow vampires, including Princes...

A few years after the events of the first Anno Dracula book, with Vlad's rule in Britain fatally undermined but his ouster not complete, Genevieve Diudonne and a host of other surly recalcitrant, revolutionary, backstabbing or too nasty even tor Tepes vamps are tossed on a boat and thrown into ex...

Newman's Anno Dracula series posits a world where Dracula defeated Van Helsing and company and married Queen Victoria becoming the de facto head of the most powerful country on Earth. It's a Wold Newtonian world where vampires from various mediums mingle with literary characters and real-life fol...

Another good one from Kim Newman. I really enjoy the Anno Dracula series and always look forward to the next installment. This did not disappoint. Loaded with new characters and freakish monsters. We get inside the heads of a couple of intriguing, recurring characters. It has a nice, quick pace,...

Kind of a mid-quel to Newman's Anno Dracula series, this volume sees a boatload of exiles from Dracula's England (where he had married Queen Victoria, defeated van Helsing and set himself up in the open) seeking refuge in 1899 Meiji Japan, where the years of isolation have given rise to creatures...
