Transylvanian Author Turns Four Decades Of Research Into "Dracula Chronicles"

SEATTLE, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle author and resident, Victor T. Foia, has published the first volume of the " Dracula Chronicles" series, " Son of the Dragon" , now available on Amazon Kindle http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ARSJNW6.

Dracula is certainly among the best-known men in the world, yet arguably the least understood. While many stories have been told about both the real and the fictional Dracula, Foia's account benefits from his extensive research and the unique perspective of a Transylvanian native.

Foia visited the castles, fortresses, dungeons, and underground chambers that witnessed the life of his protagonist Dracula. He interviewed historians in Romania and Turkey to capture new insights into the makeup of his elusive compatriot. Under Foia's pen, the "Dracula Chronicles" series finally pierces the veil of mystery that has shrouded the Wallachian king for over 500 years.

"Dracula was immoderate in everything except moderation," said Foia. "His wrath for evildoers knew no limits, and his passion for women was volcanic. Women shielded their men from his sword, while men shielded their women from his... looks. Regardless, once he had them in his sights, not many of either gender got away."

Book One of the series, " Son of the Dragon" , begins Dracula's epic journey that will see the young prince become, in future volumes, the famed strongman, warrior, and object of women's interest who captured the imagination of millions.

"Dracula was a consummate lover and a born heartbreaker," said Foia. "Powerfully built, he had flowing black hair and gleaming white teeth. Both men and women found his bright-green eyes beguiling, but obviously for different reasons."

Fighter, reader of history, and lover of languages, young Dracula used his skill at arms, knowledge, and wits to overcome impossible odds confronting him. Then, with a single impulsive step he launched himself into a hostile world capable of devouring even the strongest men.
