Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lake wraps up his historical Japanese ninja-vampire series with fresh monsters, namely dragons. Reluctant vampire Taro has won his girl, aristocrat samurai Hana, and is torn between a peaceful, if impoverished, life with her in a fishing village or accepting the challenge to slay a dragon and gain great wealth and status. The intricate plot of the first two books takes some explaining, and the story really only comes to life once we meet the dragon—then patience is rewarded with action aplenty. Lake weaves in tenets of Buddhism and history of feudal Japan for a satisfying conclusion to an intriguing trilogy. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton

More About the Author

My name's Nick and I write books for younger readers. My latest, BLOOD NINJA, is about ninjas who are also vampires - because the only thing more awesome than a ninja is a vampire ninja.

I like all the things you like, and I hate all the things you hate. I swear.

I live in a picture-postcard village in Oxfordshire, protected by trip-wires, boobytraps and a fat, lazy tomcat. Life in a picture-postcard village is very nice, but it's a bit two-dimensional.

Review:

By now there should be no surprise that I anticipate and welcome any YA set in Japan, be it in a modern or historical settings, everything goes. I’ve read the previous two books in this engaging, imaginative and action-packed series and thoroughly enjoyed them, and I’m quite sad it took me so long to finally pick up the final book. What I discovered is that everything I found awesome previously is still there, but so are heaps of other aspects that just make the last book cramped and full of various plot devices, unnecessary additions, stalling, and despite including all these new things, the story somewhat dragged and felt really slow.

Zombies and vampires and dragons, oh my! That was the source of why I felt this final book lacking. Vampire ninjas as unique twist to the story was ingenious to me and when I heard about the dragon, it was still quite exciting, but when the zombies come around and then the god of death and why oh why can’t that creepily annoying villain Kenji Kira already hit the bucket, then it started to become a bother. There was for sure lots of action, close calls, incredibly tense and oh-my-god-what’s-going-to-happen moments, but all these heaps of bad guys against our poor trio of heroes, who had internal relationship issues as well, wasn’t really encouraging and pleasant to follow. Also, poor Taro, I genuinely felt sorry for him in this book, how much torture, physical pain, emotional pain, betrayal can one person bear.

Despite my whining, I still more or less liked the book, it had a really satisfying conclusion and I was left leaving the series with a smile on my face. I was really happy on how everything was pulled together and all the fates were more than earned.

Not as good as the first book. Better than the second book. There are historical aspects of this whole trilogy that really bugged me. I know that authors are entitled to some leeway with the historical facts. Especially in a story about vampires. But throughout the trilogy you get the feeling that author is trying to convey the spirit of feudal Japan, yet is so far off with the facts. The truth is that it is obviously intentional as I am sure the author's knowledge of the period is pretty sound, he just takes it way off base. Granted this will only matter to those who are extremely interested in feudal Japan.

All in all it is a good book and it is worth reading. Though scholar's of the period will have to grit their teeth a bit.

to give a review I feel one must of read all three books which I have. I found this fictional story to be a good read. learning about friendship, honor, lies betrayal and much more. that doing what's right isn't always easy but getting more satisfaction out of life and feeling better about ones self by doing what you know in your heart is the right thing to do. I found myself getting obsorbed in the story page after page. there are some inconsistencies as I read but all in all the author did a good job. I'm not good at criticizing. Mr Nick Lake wrote a trilogy I can honestly say was worth buying and would happy to read another fictional story by him.abg

I liked the first two novels that Nick Lake wrote but the last book was terrible. First of all, if it wasn't weird enough to have vampire ninja's but to add in zombies and dragons to the mix? It just disappointed me.
