Classic horror. Classic Jidaigeki.

In 1872, Jonathan Harker travels to Japan to inform Lord Hidetora Kageura that the castle the lord commissioned to be built in Los Angeles, California, has been completed. Leaving Harker for dead, Kageura relocates to the United States. Meanwhile, Harker's friend, Lucy, dies from a mysterious ailment, which Dr. Van Helsing determines is a vampire's bite. Harker, still alive, returns to the United States, but now his wife, Mina, is the vampire's target.

Sword of the Undead introduces a new vampire: a Japanese samurai lord, and a new vampire slayer, legendary historical swordsman, Yagyu Jubei. Jubei arrives at the Harker household looking for a mutual acquaintance, but instead encounters the vampire. Incorporating real events in Japanese and United States history, Sword of the Undead combines old-fashioned horror with classic Japanese samurai drama resulting in an enjoyable re-telling of the Dracula story...with a twist.

The book contains a glossary to help with unfamiliar terms.
