my favourite book is Dracula by Bram Stoker. The author of the novel wrote it beeng inspired by a romanian governor Vlad Tzepesh a very cruel personality.
Bram Stoker's novel is a gothic one.
Jonathan Harker who becomes an estate agent for Count Dracula of Romania, who wants to move to England. After a few nights of staying in Dracula's castle he realizes he's being held prisoner and that Dracula is a vampire, he tries to escape. Eventually, he escapes and makes it back to England where he marries Mina.
Dracula takes over a ship and crash lands it onto England and the reign of terror begans there.
