The Night Crossing
All Hallows Eve in Transylvania and Mina is determined to see if the legend of a stone monster is true: does the evil within awaken when the sun sets? When she retrieves a locked gold box from a mountain-side grave, Mina unleashes a hideous force that threatens all of London.
Bram Stoker, not yet the famous author, rescues a young woman from certain death, but in doing so, becomes involved in a seeming benevolent family who may be hiding dark secrets. As mysterious deaths at the Thorne Mission House, Stoker and Mina find themselves fighting an evil born in Ancient Egypt, buried in the Carpathians, and now endangering 19th century England.
The Night Crossing mixes history with the supernatural and historical figures with fictional characters. It is easy to believe that Stoker might have found his inspiration for Dracula in the story Masello spins. Another creation from an author who finds his inspiration in antiquity, The Night Crossing successfully blends fact with fantasy for an unsettling tale of mysterious creatures and disturbing personages.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
