Renfield: Slave of Dracula by Barbara Hambly

First sentence:

"I've filled many notebook pages and scraps of paper with these daily reckonings."

Description:

"Renfield -- confined to an asylum -- obsesses in his diary, pens letters of insane passion to his wife, and still answers his Master's calling. Ordered to hunt and kill Van Helsing, Renfield complies, setting the stage for the ultimate battle between good and evil, the living and the dead. It will take him from the dark crypt of Dracula's castle to the more personal darkness of his own descent into madness, and the shocking truth of where it all began." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this book which looked at the events described in Bram Stoker's Dracula from Renfield's, John Seward's and Van Helsing's point of view. I especially liked the interactions between Renfield and Dracula's wives.
