* BlatantLies: Dacre Stoker claimed he was trying to reclaim the franchise from the film adaptations... and then followed the film adaptations rather than the original novel, making his FanSequel nothing more than yet another reinterpretation of the original novel.
* CriticalResearchFailure: The authors get almost nothing right when they make reference to history, frequently ignore both the original novel ''and'' most of the film versions when they cite the first book, and generally are the sort of people who shouldn't have gotten into literature.

Added DiffLines:

* RonTheDeathEater: Jonathan gets an absolute ''hammering'' in this book, having turned from a decent if slightly bone-headed guy to an alcoholic, abusive whoremonger. Seward gets it to a lesser extent, being a dick who never forgave Arthur for winning Lucy's hand. But the worst is undoubtedly what they've done to ''Bram Stoker'', here a petty, jealous egomaniac who'll step on anyone to stay famous.

* UnfortunateImplications: Dacre Stoker reinterprets Mina's traumatic metaphorical rape in the original novel as a forbidden romance.
** Also, [[spoiler: Bram Stoker is killed by Dracula]]. In a book written by his great-grand nephew. Come to your own conclusions.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Dracula is a [[spoiler: FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, and everything he did in the original novel is {{Ret Con}}ned to be self-defense, the lesser of two evils or just plain libel that Bram Stoker invented.]]

* CompleteMonster: DUHHH. [[spoiler: It's hard to say whether or not Dracula counts; he's not the villain of this story, but he was a real tyrant in life. Bathory, however, certainly qualifies.]]



* DieForOurShip: Jonathan is killed early in the book, and Mina pretty much goes gaga for Dracula. An in-universe example perhaps?

* WhatAnIdiot: Van Helsing. [[spoiler: His views on Dracula have almost done a complete 180-degree turn between the end of the original novel and the start of this one, but he never apologizes for his error to other characters, nor even admits to it until they've already found out about his omission.]] When he reveals that [[spoiler: he has been turned into a vampire, we get to see his point of view to make it clear that he's still himself and not really trying to hurt his former friends, except maybe for being drunk on power, but everything he does from then on ''just happens'' to look like DemonicPossession.]]

* YourMileageMayVary: Many reviewers do not consider this a true sequel because "a sequel cannot suggest the original got it wrong". However, some do feel it's a good followup because of realistic elements of psychological collapse.
** The quality of the story itself.
