    1. I I am stunned.I was on board the 'let's make a prequel to a classic novel' up until the 'let's include the classic novel as part of the story, but change a whole lot of really important themes, ideas, characters and plot to make them fit in the new author's storyline and worldview' bit. Then came the wanting to scream and yell and throw the book across the room part (I refrained from throwing, but I did yell a couple times). This whole series has been an up and down experience for me. Some of t [...]


    2. The third and final novel in the Dracula prequel series “The Diaries of the Family Dracul” not only continues the tale from the first two books but takes us right up to and, in fact, overlaps with the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. This novel actually begins long ago with a prologue wherein it is explained that a prince named Vlad, who came to be known much later as the Impaler (Tsepesh) or the son of the Dragon (Dracula), made a bargain with the Dark Lord. Every generation that his family co [...]


    3. It's Dracula and somewhat accurate to the history, but it throws in Elizabeth Bathory at the end of the series (which is awesome!). It's a very good read but I will warn you, it's even a bit angsty and twisted. It's the evil Dracula that we're taught about in school (or rather, I was). It even has Van Helsing, or one of his children--it's a good twist of a story.


    4. De los tres libros es el que menos me ha gustado, pero en conjunto la trilogía me pareció bastante entretenida.(Spoilers adelante, hay alerta sobre los párrafos)Sentí que el tercer libro transcurría de manera demasiado lenta, haciendo tiempo para el final, y solo se dedicaba a dar vuelta a la misma información y los mismos temas por varios capítulos, sin aportar mucho información nueva ni un avance significativo. ¡SPOILER!Casi al final, se introduce un nuevo problema que se soluciona de [...]


    5. Este es la saga de vampiros que mas recuerda a Dracula incluso en este último libro toma personajes del original. El Van Helsing que mas me ha gustado esta aquí. Muy recomendableexcepto que el final fue predecible.




    6. Another wonderful addition to the series! I'm so sorry it's over. This book introduced Elisabeth of Bathory who proved to be a very interesting, and disturbing, character.


    7. I am almost unable to write a review regarding the final piece of Jeanne Kalogridis' trilogy. Though my experience in reading a series or even a trilogy is limited, I can truly say that this was by far one of the best trilogies I've ever read. Never before has the re-imagining of such a classic tale been remastered so masterfully. It is a sweeping story arc filled with history, horror, murder, betrayal, erotic passion, and above all, redemption. With the over-saturation of "romance" and erotica [...]


    8. This final volume in the trilogy of "The Diaries of the Family Dracul" merges the histories of Vlad the Impaler and Count Dracula in a prequel to, and retelling of, the Stoker classic, seeking to fill some of the gaps left by the original. This is the most seductive novel of the series, mainly because of the retelling not only the familiar Bram Stoker original "Dracula" but also augments the story by introducing the legend of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who lived some 150 years after Vlad Tepesh [...]


    9. Una historia paralela al Drácula de Bram Stoker, con los mismos personajes y la misma línea narrativa, pero con otras notas sustraídas de los diarios de los mismos que conllevaban otra trama que acabaría poco después del final de Stoker. Van Helsing en la línea sanguínea de los Tsepesh y otros descendientes más; una Elizabeth de Bathory enredada con Vlad. Interesante y recomendable.


    10. Diaries of the Family Dracul #3: Lord of the Vampires, by Jeanne KalogridisThe final book of Kalogridis' Diaries of the Family Dracul series, "Lord of the Vampires" merges seamlessly into the events of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," and even expands on the story. The author incorporates another famous character of vampire legend, the Countess Elizabeth Bathory, into the series as well. Elizabeth goes to Castle Dracula at Vlad's behest, to restore his energy and power; she also befriends Zsuzsanna, sho [...]


    11. First of all, I should say that since I read Bram's Stocker Dracula's, I become adicted to that book in particular and to the vampire genre in general (minus the Twiligth saga obviously). So when one day I was in the book store looking for something to read, I found this book on a shelve and read the back to see what was about. I didn't know the author, so my curiosity get the better of me when I read at it was a trilogy that filled all the holes in the Dracula book plot, like ¿where those vamp [...]


    12. The last book in the Diaries of the Family Dracul series ended up blending with the actual occurrences in the novel it's based from, Dracula. Where they mixed, I didn't mind, but it didn't focus on the novel events as much as her additions and where Kalogridis fit them in.I can't say I liked it as much as the last. I was okay with her use of Van Helsing, and could even see his past being as it was. John Seward's heritage I was iffy about, and thought it almost unnecessary except to give him the [...]


    13. Sadly, the most seemingly interesting of the three books in the "Diaries of the Family Dracul" series is the weakest. Introduced in this outing is a new vampire, based on the historical Countess Elisabeth Bathory. She, rather than Vlad, inexplicably takes center stage as the villain of the final novel. Despite the buildup of the previous novel, Vlad is left with little in the novel save what he does in the original Dracula. Kalogridis tries to spice up these events by interpreting them from Van [...]


    14. Trilogía terminada.Uauh impactante.No tengo otra palabra. Me he leído casi la mitad del libro en una tarde.De esta tercera parte me ha gustado (y eso que la autora lo tenía difícil) la relación que se esperaba con el "Drácula" de Bram Stoker. Que apareciesen personajes de la novela de Stoker me ha gustado mucho, aunque sí que es verdad que estos no se tocan mucho, yo creo que la autora no ha querido desvirtuar la imagen ya creada en la novela original.Es curioso porque gracias a este libr [...]


    15. This is the third and final installment in Jeanne Kalogridis' Diaries of the Family Dracul trilogy. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the other two but this particular book becomes just a bit much as if she were reaching for more to write about. It brings about the final battle between Abraham Van Helsing and Dracula, which to say the least is indeed interesting, however the incorporation of Elizabeth Bathory into this story begins to turn this otherwise engaging book down the path of corny. [...]


    16. Abraham Van Helsing is pominent in his desire to destroy Vlad and all vampires. His wife is suffering from Zsuzanna's bite and is institutionalized since she is quite mad. His mother, Mary, (Arkady's wife) is dying and suffering greatly but nothing can be done to help her. Due to Van Helsing's efforts, Vlad and Zsuzsanna are dying a slow death as well. However Vlad has invited Elisabeth (another vampire though a different kind) to his castle to restore them. Of course, Elisabeth has plans of her [...]


    17. Overall I was very disappointed in this series. I'm a huge fan of Bram Stoker's Dracula, and I was intrigued by the premise of this series. I enjoyed the first book, Covenant With the Vampire, but that's where it ends. I was very disappointed in the changes the author made to the original story, some of which made no sense to me. Why change Lucy's blood transfusions to aura transfusions? Why have Harker kill Quincy? I've enjoyed this author as her JM Dillard persona, but I'm not sure I'll read a [...]


    18. 12 books/2010Having read the first two and enjoyed them well enough, I had an unbearable compulsion to read the third in this trilogy. I finally got it from the library. These books are set up a prequel to Dracula, setting out to explain various mysteries in the novel. I was interested in this one at the beginning--it was horrifying and erotic--however the end began to drag, and merge with Stoker's tale so that I found myself disapointed and skimming passages.


    19. I read this story a long time ago when I was really into the whole vampire/Dracula phase. I believe I had read Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire and Lestat before this one and expected it to be along the same vein (no pun intended). The story had a lot of potential but for some reason it didn't move me the way that I thought it would. One thing I remember from the story, the anticipation of a climax and then being let down. I can't explain it, but something about the lead character fell flat. [...]


    20. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could, but I rounded up. The only thing I was disappointed was that the author never explained anymore of Gerda, Van Helsing's wife. What ever came of her? I guess you can only assume that she was healed or had died. Not sure if there's a 4th book, if so, maybe it'll explain in that? Still a good book overall. I like the different perspective of what happened or why Vlad Dracula had been around. Very creative.


    21. I kept pushing this book aside in favor of more appealing volumes. That in itself should have told me something. I don’t know why I kept reading this book. It isn’t as though I didn’t know the ending. Unlike the previous book, here Kalogridis doesn’t do a very good job of bringing her characters to life. I didn’t really care about any of them. I think the only thing that kept me going was an academic interest in how closely Kalogridis’ tale would mirror Stoker’s.


    22. Almost like a work of fan-fiction, this trilogy takes place in Bram Stoker's fictitious world he created and gives it a fresh start and a new perspective. I read these books my senior year of high school and I absolutely loved them and became engrossed in their sprawling vampire world. If you've read the original "Dracula" then I highly recommend a read.


    23. Jeanne strayed from the imagination of the characters portrayed in the first two books and instead incorporated a simile of Bram's "Dracula." The build up to destroy Vlad once and for all lasted 2 1/2 books but the final blow was written to two sentences??!!! A very disappointed ending. However, a twist of Elizabeth of Bathory is the only reason to keep reading.


    24. The finally book of the Covenant with the Vampire series, I did notice that this book basically turn into the Bram Strokes Dracula book, since I'd already read Dracula it was awesome that it took that turn


    25. A perfect ending to this series.This book had lots of twists and surpises. There was however some lesbian action in this one, kind of interesting, but not my cup of tea. Luckily it didnt take away from the story, if anything added more depth to certain relationships i guess i could say


    26. I actually haven't read the first two in the trilogy, so there is a lot of context I am missing, but over all, it was an enjoyable read. I do wish there had been more of Zsuzsanna's entries near the end, but over all the adventure is a good one.


    27. i enjoyed the tie ins to the original Dracula and the rest of this series, but didn't find this book quiet as good as the rest. didn't really care for the auras stuff. really enjoyed the twists that she came up with throughout this whole series.


    28. Dios mío cuando por fin había superado la muerte de mi adorado Kasha, él regresa, y cuando por fin asimilé su regreso ¡Bam! El libro se termina. Y asdfghjkl ¡Necesito más de esta historia! Me encantó totalmente~.
