Editorial Review:

Product Description:


"Simmons writes like a hot-rodding angel." –Stephen King




An evil legacy comes to life in this classic and ultimately human novel about believable vampires, featuring a brand-new introduction by Dan Simmons. Children of the Night will take you to a place that no one knows―yet all of us fear.



In a desolate orphanage in post-Communist Romania, a desperately ill infant is given the wrong blood transfusion―and flourishes rather than dies. For immunologist Kate Neuman, the infant's immune system may hold the key to cure cancer and AIDS. Kate adopts the baby and takes him home to the States. But baby Joshua holds a link to an ancient clan and their legendary leader―Vlad Tsepes, the original Dracula – whose agents kidnap the child. Against impossible odds and vicious enemies– both human and vampire – Kate and her ally, Father Mike O'Rourke, steal into Romania to get her baby back.



"A mesmerizing tour through the ghostly, gray tatters of Romania." –Publishers Weekly



"Simmons gives a chilling description of post-Ceausescu Romania and neatly ties the vampire legend into political history to create a new and clever twist to the idea of the vampire's craving for blood." –Library Journal



"His best novel ever… Toothsomely well written." –Kirkus



"Brilliant ideas… The most rigorous and interesting scientific rationale for vampirism I've ever seen… You keep turning the pages." –Locus
