Este ebook presenta "Drácula (texto completo, con índice activo)", con un sumario dinámico y detallado.
Drácula es una novela publicada en 1897 por Bram Stoker, que ha convertido a su protagonista en el vampiro más famoso. Drácula, parte de la existencia de Vlad Tepes, es un personaje histórico situado en la Rumania del siglo XV, y conocido por su heroicidad contra la invasión otomana, pero también por su crueldad. A partir de esta historia y de no pocas leyendas acerca de él, Bram Stoker escribe esta novela en forma de diarios y cartas que los personajes principales van intercambiándose. Una obra trascendental de la literatura gótica que abrió un nuevo camino en la novela de terror y que instauró la figura del aristócrata transilvano como arquetipo del mal y modelo de seducción perversa.
Bram Stoker (1847 - 1912) fue un novelista y escritor irlandés.

The first volume of the classic collection of Middle Eastern stories, including “Tale of the Three Apples” and “Tale of the Trader and the Jinni.” To be chosen by King Shahriyar as a wife was a death sentence. After a single night of marriage, he executed each of his wives. So when Scheherazade was picked, she knew her time on Earth had reached its end—unless she could hold the king’s interest. To that end, each night she spun a new enchanting, erotic, mesmerizing tale, always keeping the king guessing as to its conclusion—and sparing her life for another thousand and one nights. The first volume of this collection, translated by the renowned British explorer Sir Richard Burton, begins the stories that Scheherazade told . . .
Shakespeare’s renowned tragedy about the destruction wrought by ambition and jealousy. Othello, a Moor and general in the Venetian army, has just eloped with Desdemona, the daughter of a senator. Simultaneously, seeds of doubt are planted in Othello’s mind by the scheming Iago—an ensign who seethes with ambition and resentment—with assistance from Iago’s wealthy friend who wanted Desdemona for himself. Behind the scenes, Iago’s machinations are designed to sow discord and, ultimately, convince Othello that his wife is unfaithful—and the consequences will be tragic.

Will Elizabeth’s new path in life allow Darcy to overcome all his objections, leading them straight into each other’s arms? Or will other family obstacles keep them apart?
"That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

There is, however, one man whom she can love. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. The two start out as friends, but Mr. Darcy wants more. Much more.
Surely Elizabeth will not always sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of her family. Or will she?
