Carpathia by Matt Forbeck


Carpathia by Matt Forbeck

Hell comes to the high seas as James Cameron's TITANIC crashes full-force into the iceberg that is Bram Stoker's DRACULA. Forbeck sinks his fangs into one helluva horror story, robbing from real history to set up an epic showdown between man and vampire (and between vampire and vampire) on the RMS Carpathia File Under: Fantasy [ Bump In The Night | Unthinkable | Rescue Remedy | 1912 Overture ]. It's gripping, exciting, and imaginative. It could make a great film, but it's a great book anyway so read it, whether you like sci-fi or not.


Forbeck effortlessly blends history and horror, the Titanic and vampires, along with adventure and romance in a fast-paced, chilling novel that moves like a bat out of hell.

- Aaron Rosenberg, author of the bestselling No Small Bills

CARPATHIA is a dangerous collision of rich historical drama and epic horror. Beautifully written, completely disturbing - and highly recommended. - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of ASSASSIN'S CODE and DEAD OF NIGHT

It's gripping, exciting, imaginative - It would could make a great film, but it's a great book anyway so read it, whether you like scifi or not! - Writing and Reading
