Editorial Reviews

Review

"Opens with a dizzying, James Bond-style action piece as Alex's plane is hijacked by vampires ... the best of the series so far, expanding the mythos and forcing Alex to face the implications of his choices in rewarding, resonant ways. All the hallmark genre nods are in place, and fans won't be able to stop smiling."
-- Rio Grande Monitor

"This third Alex Van Helsing book is packed full of action and continues to deliver character development with all the same likable characters... with a fast-moving plot and gripping action adventure, making it a most enjoyable, perfectly entertaining novel. ...Alex still copes and adapts using his special abilities and deals with just how special and unique he is in the fight against evil.
Hopefully, the author will decide not to end Alex Van Helsing as a trilogy and instead continue entertaining readers with more adventures and vampire myth, similar to Colfer's Artemis Fowl." --VOYA 

“Like its predecessors, this book is well written, with a fast-moving plot and gripping action adventure, making it a most enjoyable, perfectly entertaining novel. This excellent book is a must-have for all libraries, especially where horror fiction is hot.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

Praise for Alex Van Helsing: Voice of the Undead:“Wisecracks, gadgets and fast-paced action sequences abound in the second book about Alex Van Helsing….[H]umorous dialogue and harrowing escapes will keep action-oriented readers…entertained.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising: “James Bond meets Dracula. It has lots of bite that will have readers thirsting for more.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

Praise for Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising: “This wonderful series opener is a compelling action, fantasy, horror story ... will engage readers easily and many will not be able to put it down. A must-have.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

Praise for the Alex Van Helsing series:“Engaging and suspenseful.” (Associated Press)

The Triumph of Death is fast paced and action packed, yet with surprising depth and deceptively good plotting I'd never expected to see from this series.

Format: Hardcover
Alex Van Helsing teams up with a new classmate (who happens to be a witch) after discovering that a vampire queen is planning an apocalypse that will turn the world dark. Then vampires would have free reign of the world. And only an old painting holds a clue to her upcoming plans.

Alex is still struggling with a bit of teen angst and relationship problems, while dealing with school, his strange powers that he still doesn't fully understand, and working and training as a vampire hunter. Henderson's imaginative characters and historic literary foundation are a springboard for a wild ride of action-packed adventure, mystery, and fast-paced thrills. The creative twist on classic gothic novels are not only a fascinating center point for the story, but make me want to re-read the classics such as Dracula and Frankenstein again. I read that this exciting third installment in the Alex Van Helsing series is supposedly the last. The Triumph of Death is certainly my favorite of the series. And the main story arc begun in the first book does have a huge twist that resolves in this climactic ending. But there is quite a bit that is left open and unanswered. I would love to see the more in the series simply because I love the characters, and I'm a sucker for a creative take on the vampire/Van Helsing story.

This is how you write a vampire book. The Triumph of Death is fast paced and action packed, yet with surprising depth and deceptively good plotting I'd never expected to see from this series. It's everything Vampire Rising aspired to be, just the right mix of vampire slaying action and historical nods, plot twists and character development that bring this series full circle.

The great thing about these sequels is that they go big right from the start. Fighting off vampire hijackers and jumping out of a plane, yeah, that's definitely big. But The Triumph of Death is about way more than just Alex offing various vampires in a string of spy thriller but with bloodsuckers type scenes, the plot's actually a desperate search for clues to stop the coming end of the world by combing through the backgrounds of the great nineteenth century poet and vampire inspiration Lord Byron and his fellow authors Mary Shelley and John Polidori. By now of course, three books in it's been pretty much drilled into me how Polidori founded the Polidorium, the vampire slaying organization Alex works for, to oppose the powerful and evil vampire Lord Byron and even had his friend Mary Shelley plant clues in her novel Frankenstein on how to defeat Byron. But this book ties together Byron's and Polidori's legacies in a way Vampire Rising just didn't, the story of Claire Clairmont and her daughter with Byron Allegra is integral to the plot rather than feeling like staid background material as in the first book. And it's all incredibly powerful too.

And this book in particular, Henderson's writing inspired by Bruegel's painting The Triumph of Death and Shelley's novel Frankenstein is just off the charts awesome.
