||1723. The fearless Baron de Nossac returns from a daring
military mission in Eastern Europe when, crossing the forests of Bohemia,
he is captured by the legendary Black Huntsman, a 900-year-old wraith
who is none other than the Devil's own son. Held prisoner at the Hunstman's
enchanted castle, the Baron is then seduced by a female vampire who resembles
his dead wife.
Written in 1852 by the creator of Rocambole, The Vampire and the
Devil's Son is a significant contribution to the development of modern
horror fiction and a foreshadowing of literary things to come, bringing
together for the first time two major modern archetypes: the seductive
female vampire and the Son of the Devil.
