Rollover to Zoom 


In opening this manuscript, the reader finds five soldiers hiding in a cold mountain cabin. The main character, Mihail, a captain, tells a tale of two Transylvanian boys, one a Saxon and the other a Romanian, in their journey to the city catch a glimpse of their new prince of Walachia. The two boys will join the Christian forces of Prince Vlad Dracula of Transylvania and see and feel its times. The story will reveal customs, religious practices, and accounts of the Balkans in a fifteenth century Europe and demonstrate why some feuds started and still last today. Based on well-researched and pieced together facts, Dracula, the Son of the Dragon, will take the reader back to a brutal time when Christianity in the west resisted the dictates of the Ottoman Turks encroaching from the east. One small princedom, Walachia, with a new young 19-year-old voevad, Prince Vlad Dracula commanding a small 40,000, stood alone against the might and dictates of the Islamic Ottoman Empire and its Sultan Mehmed II. Many truths and misconceptions are revealed in Dracula, the Son of the Dragon, the son of Dracul, the Dragon. Although many brutal and harsh practices were used, they were not exceptional in the context and times of the events. The reader may come to see why certain choices were made or not made. The reader will see Vlad Dracula for the tragic yet valiant character that he became in history and why [we continue against the same forces Dracula and his army battled]. In the end, the same soldiers as in the beginning are in the cold room continuing to try to understand what they have done and what they might have lost in both the eyes of men and the eyes of God. They wondered what the future might bring to their world without Prince Dracula.
