Vom Autor: The book of M has been a dream of mine to write. I grew up reading Sherlock Holmes, The Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein, Dracula, and sleepy Hollow. As I got older I discovered Allan Quatermain, and the story Of Elizabeth Bathory. I never read Zorro but I always loved the old movies and TV shows and was so excited when I found out he was in the public domain.
 
What I decided to do was try and keep the original stories intact and make them about what happened after the fact. This series of books starts with one woman, Elizabeth Bathory, I know a lot of the time periods are off, however this is after all fiction and I wanted a plausible story to be able to put these characters together.
 Elizabeth Bathory has been in exile still fighting to maintain her youth and desperately trying to defy death itself. So she is forced to hide and travel searching for the secrets of the ages and in her travels she finds a lowly Phantom wondering the streets of Paris and recruits him in returned for security and aid. She also finds a broken man by the name of Professor Moriarty (who had fallen from a large waterfall) he found his way to her door step one night as she is staying over in a small village still on the run from the authorities.
Now with the brave Phantom and the Mind of professor Moriarty she is able to recruit another lowly poor soul who had turned himself invisible and living in secrete so the world will think he remains dead, he simply goes by the name griffin.
Also The Countess Bathory knows of a thief who is world renowned and yet has never been caught his name Arsene Lupin. The countess sends Lupin to the Americas to locate the head of an invincible Hessian warrior. The warrior is the only one who can get through the snares inside Dracula's final resting place, Bathory feels if she has Dracula she will become invincible and live forever as undead, However should the supernatural not be enough, she turns to science. The Countess sends Griffin and Moriarty to the frozen arctic to locate a man created from science by a brilliant Scientist named Frankenstein.  With her plan complete what could possible stand in the countesses way of revenge upon the entire world.
Traveling alone a doctor of other sorts has faked his own death so that he might be able to find a cure for his own creation. Dr. Henry Jekyll was searching for a way that he could live out his fantasies without fear of remorse, however what he created he named Hyde.  As the years have gone by Hyde has become more powerful and in fact Jekyll does not need the potion to turn him anymore, sometimes all it takes is a strong emotion. Along his Journey he meets a man with a similar problem who he calls Larry. Larry was bitten by a large wolf one night and now he is cursed whenever the moon is full he becomes that which bit him.
On a chance meeting of the wolf and Hyde, a fight ensues and in the end Larry and Jekyll become friends and travel together trying to keeps each ones alter ego in check., that is until an encounter with an evil count and his vampire army disrupts the two men.
He has been on the run for years trying to track down the rest of Dracula's army however the remaining Vampires have been hunting him as well. The Vampire Hunter's name is Abraham Van Helsing and he has been slaying vampires ever since he destroyed the dark Count Dracula. One night on such a hunt he ends up on the doorstep of history's greatest detective Sherlock Holmes.  Holmes 'after witnessing' the Vampires for himself insist on helping Van Helsing in his crusade of ridding the world of such beast. Along the way they are aided in a vampire battle by a Spanish swordsman who has been traveling the world in his retirement years. Diego de la Vega insists on helping the two men on their journey.
Along the way the three men are assisted by the likes of Captain Ahab, Allan Quatermain, and even Captain Nemo.
In this volume you will see a betrayal by Dracula, a change of heart by Professor Moriarty, and meet a pack of friendly peace loving werewolves.
So where will it all end? well you will have to read it to find out.

I know there are always critics but as you read just remember its a story and I believe its a fun adventure.
