A new novelization of the cult classic Hammer film Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter, with a new foreword by its writer and director Brian Clemens
What manner of monster can wreak such damage? I only hope you know how it can be stopped.
The peace of an English village is shattered when a young girl withers before her friend's eyes, becoming but dust and bones. Witnessing this terrifying transformation, local physician Dr. Marcus fears the village has been cursed by the presence of evil. He immediately summons his old army friend, the mysterious but powerful vampire hunter, Kronos. Together with the help of his assistant Professor Grost, Kronos has dedicated his whole life to destroying vampires. He knows that with a vampire nothing is certain, especially how one might be able to kill it. As more and more villagers fall prey to this deadly curse, time is against him. And when it comes dangerously close to home, Kronos is faced with a terrible choice.
