In fifteenth-century Eastern Europe, Vlad III of Wallachia conducted a reign of terror. He had citizens impaled by the thousands. People were butchered on his merest whim. In his realm, and beyond it, men and women lived in dread of the Impaler Prince. And this Prince revelled in the horror he inspired.

He was a sadist, seen by some as a being of unequalled depravity, even as the Devil’s own spawn. But Vlad was also a man who had the qualities of a great leader: strength, courage, intelligence and commitment to an ideal. He was a crusader against the infidel who considered himself a true warrior of Christ.

Here, his story is told by four men whose lives overlapped with his; men who were influenced by him to the point of obsession. But it is also told by Vlad himself. The inner thoughts of the butcher of Wallachia are exposed. And there is much more to this sinister figure than many would have imagined. 

David John McAllister spent three years in Bulgaria. He travelled from there to tour Romania. The author has also visited a number of other countries in Eastern Europe, having long been interested in that part of the world.
Mr. McAllister has a daughter and two granddaughters. He currently lives with his partner in Cumbria.

    I've just read and enjoyed this book. There's humour running through it, which makes it easy to read. Even if it's not your genre, I recommend you to read it.

    This book is extremely well written. It is historical fiction and clearly researched very carefully and thoroughly. A good read!

  • Lila Halliday

    A really well researched account of the rise and fall of Vlad Dracula. Well written characters, really readable and brilliantly gruesome.....not for the faint hearted.
