Book Excerpt: 
. . .Each time both Miss Trelawny and I said through our mufflers, "all right," and the door was closed again.

As the time wore on, the silence and the darkness seemed to increase. The circle of light on the ceiling was still there, but it seemed less brilliant than at first. The green edging of the lamp-shade became like Maori greenstone rather than emerald. The sounds of the night without the house, and the starlight spreading pale lines along the edges of the window-cases, made the pall of black within more solemn and more mysterious.

We heard the clock in the corridor chiming the quarters with its silver bell till two o'clock; and then a strange feeling came over me. I could see from Miss Trelawny's movement as she looked round, that she also had some new sensation. The new detective had just looked in; we two were alone with the unconscious patient for another quarter of an hour.

My heart began to beat wildly. There was a sense. . . Read More

This book has two endings. When originally published in 1903 and in second publishing in 1904 it had an ending that was critics at the time as being too gruesome so when Stoker published it again,shortly before his death in 1912, he was forced by the publisher to add a new ending.

Yes, I know Bram Stoker is a god among the horror writers. Dracula is deservedly a classic if only for its vast influence. The Jewel of Seven Stars is considered the first modern mummy novel just as Dracula set the stage for every vampire novel to follow.

But I gotta say it.

A worthwhile, if anti-climactic read. Stoker slowly built up the tension to the moment of crisis, then let it fall flat on the final page. I do think there should be some reward for the diligent reader when the author has been at considerable pains to lay the scene for an earth-shattering revelat...more

One thing I have noticed with Stokers work is that he never gives any answers.
He is excellent at building up the anticipation.
And we think we get an explanation. Something remarkable, and yet he always leaves us in glorious wonder.

Well, now I know why I'd never heard of any other Bram Stoker novels. Because this one is terrible. A mysterious attack on an Egyptologist leads a local judge and the victim's daughter into a previously unknown world featuring a supernatural mummy queen who will do anything to get back her titula...more

Not what I was expecting but definitely interesting, The Jewel of Seven Stars sweeps its readers into a horrific, mysterious world of the supernatural.

Set in Kensington with flashback into the Valley of the Sorcerer. A mysterious tomb is found. In the Great Experiment the forgotten Queen shall be brought back to life. Well, I really liked this story, it was a quick read and it had a fine gothic fin de siecle atmosphere. Clear recommendation!

A very long time ago, I read this as a young teen in my post- Dark Shadows 1970s world. Idiotic plotting sometimes gives way to atrocious writing -- there is a reason that Dracula is the more renowned work -- but undeniably influential on the horror genre. Love Margaret's dual nature, the descrip...more
