THE MUMMY OF MONTE CRISTO
A horror reimagining of Alexandre Dumas' classic revenge tale "The Count of Monte Cristo."
In a world where mankind shares the world with monsters and magic, and where the undead roamed Europe until Napoleon conquered the Dead Plague, Edmond Dantes is wrongfully imprisoned against the backdrop of the French Revolution and Hundred Days.
Desperate and with nothing left to lose, Edmond turns to a dark power beyond his understanding to reach from beyond the grave and torment his accusers. He will return to Paris with new riches, a new face, and a new weapon - THE MUMMY'S CURSE.
Here's what people are saying about
THE MUMMY OF MONTE CRISTO:
Robinson takes Edmond Dantes and his friends to completely uncharted waters [...] perfectly captures the all-consuming revenge that colors Edmond’s personality [...] truly leaves no stone unturned in his grand retelling.
This book is 100% worth your time and money. An absolute pleasure from beginning to end. If it doesn’t win a Dragon Award in 2021, it won’t be my fault.
Quartermain, Amazon review
A fast-paced, swashbuckling epic that should appeal to fans of classic literature and horror alike.
Greg Hickey, author of Our Dried Voices
One of the best fantasy/thriller stories I have read. It had a bit of everything – danger, action, monsters. This story puts you on the edge of your seat.
Heidi Schoolman, Amazon review
This thick novel in fact combines two elements: the addition of strong fantastic elements in Dumas's novel, therefore, but also a complete rewrite of it which, while respecting the original plot, gives the reader many scenes not in the original.

3 out of 3 stars ⭐⭐⭐
The style of writing is fast-paced, and even though there are places where the author gives detailed context to the characters and situations, the flow of the story is not broken.
