The author's very scarce second novel. Drakulya was Prince of Wallachia (now part of Romania) who struggled for personal and political survival during the sinister intrigues of 15th century Europe. When Drakulya finally breaks free from his captors' influence he returns as ruler of his own country to wreak horrifying revenge. Robert Hale were a library publisher, the majority of copies from the relatively small print run going to libraries. Very scarce, particularly signed and in this condition
