Robert Lory – The Witching Of Dracula (New English Library, 1977)

When the blood countess returns, even Dracula is filled with horror!

Blurb:

One afternoon a fine, strong young man named Janos strayed too far into the solemn hills above his tiny Hungarian village. Suddenly he came upon an ancient castle, a dark, mysterious place where, according to legend, a young woman had been murdered many years before.

Venturing down into the cavernous dungeons, Janos discovered the legendary bed chamber. If the stories were true… this was the place! The place where Elizabeth Bathory had been walled up to die!

Then he saw it. A small skeleton crumpled before a massive iron gateway. Was it Elizabeth Bathory? Fighting a desire to turn and run, Janos crept past the bleached bones to the inner chamber. There, in the center of the room, was a huge, dust-covered glass box.

Trembling, he wiped the dust away. His eyes widened with horror. Inside was the body of a beautiful naked woman!

The fifth of nine novels in the original Pinnacle series (NEL only reprinted six) sees Dracula reunited with his old sparring partner, Elizabeth Bathory, the ex-Bloody Countess who has since reinvented herself as a psychic sponge and is out to destroy the old count!

Who did the NEL covers for the Dracula Returns series? This, the first and Drums look to have something of the Bruce Pennington about them …
