The Chalice is a Gothic horror and romance tale which explores witchcraft and the Inquisition from an Evangelical perspective.

The Chalice Novel Danousek, a young Hussite knight, is waylaid by Dracula who is rampaging through fifteenth-century Bohemia. The Wallachian vampire is searching for his Chalice when he runs across the knight who is engaged in a project of his own, rescuing his Gypsy sweetheart. Unfortunately, Tsuritsa has been abducted by Bavarian witches because she knows the location of Dracula’s Chalice. En route Danousek forms an unlikely alliance. Two Dominican Inquisitors, Sprenger and Kramer, are pursuing the witches; Josef, an aged Jew, is Tsurita’s friend and mentor. Together these allies, who would have otherwise been mortal enemies, race to overtake the kidnappers before Dracula’s undead army does.
