Like the original novel, Bloodline is an epistolary novel written entirely in letters, diary entries and news articles. A second novel, titled Bloodline: Reckoning was later released. Plot summary[ edit ] Bloodline takes place during World War I. John Shaw, a nineteen-year-old, joins the British Army and is sent to the front lines, in the trenches. He works as a communications officer who listens to German radio feeds and translates what he hears.

His regiment commander is a man named Quincey Harker, who is the son of Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray from the original Dracula novel. Harker is famous for going on raids in the enemy trenches alone at night, and shows several feats of superhuman strength that seem impossible. He is also shown to be cruel to his men. One night a soldier named Private Smith falls asleep on his watch, and Germans invade the trench. Private Smith does not die from being shot or shelled, but appears to die of fear.

One night, Harker takes John on a night raid to destroy a nest of snipers. However, John gets stabbed in the shoulder with a bayonet. Harker carries him back to the trench, which saves his life. He is rushed back to England for care. John is cared for by Mary Seward, the daughter of Dr. John Seward , in the old sanitorium owned by Dr. Seward, which was being used as a hospital during the war. Mary remembers seeing John at a garden party several years before, and wants to help him.

She reads his journal that he brought with him to the hospital, and learns about the strange and seemingly impossible feats Harker had done. Meanwhile, John is still delirious from the fever, thinking he is still in the trenches instead of back in England.

Soon, however, his fever breaks and he becomes lucid. Soon, John is recovered and discharged from the hospital. Harker leaves for London to do some work, and when he returns he tells John that his services are needed there for a few days.

They also read the collection of journals that is the original Dracula book. It is all part of a master plan thought up by Tepes to raise the House of Dracul back to power with John and Quincey both united by Lily. Lily is shocked to learn that Quincey is a vampire, but is still determined to marry him, as she still loves him. The day before their marriage, however, she kills herself by jumping out the castle window onto sharp rocks below because she was afraid of becoming a vampire, which was part of the master plan, and knew she would never stop loving Quincey, which would make it impossible to leave him.

Meanwhile, Mina turns John into a vampire after convincing him that it is his destiny. Rosemary tells Mary where the baby is being kept and about a secret exit from the castle.

Mary kills her by pounding a stake through her heart. She takes the baby and runs to the courtyard, where the secret exit is. Surprisingly, Quincey helps her escape by lifting it for her.

After Mary escapes, Quincey goes back to his room. He hears John shouting his name from outside, and looks out the window to see Mina tied to a tree, as Private Smith was once tied to a wagon wheel. The sun comes up and Mina burns to death. John does this because he thinks Quincey killed his mother, while Mary was the culprit. The book ends with John remaining at Castle Dracula, Quincey going off to live somewhere else, and Mary and the baby, whom she names Grace, escaping back to England.

Yogami John has to face Harker in order to get his sister back. I finished it, which is more then I can say for some books, but hopefully there are other editions out there with the proper pages in order and everything tied together. Dr Seward was underused. Is all this talk of how horrible the war is just there to add to the horror element of the book, or increase the feeling of evil? View all 4 comments.

In , she had a son, named Joshua Josh. My dad gave me a kitten when I was six: a small black, gentle cat. She would follow me around the house waiting for me to sit down so she could clamber onto my lap and purr. Since then I have never been without a cat. Even at University I found a cat to love: a black tom who lived in the halls of residence.
