So D is never going to be great fiction, and there are plenty of 3 and 4 star books in my review history that most people would like better. But if you are one of those people, like me, who like the D books, this is one of the best.
This time, D hooks up with Rosaria, this volume's frontier beauty, and with a set of rough and tumble transporters. They run afoul of General Gaskell, a legendary vampire so bad that the other vamps consider him a monster, and a rogue's gallery of other vampires from the past, all of them with exotic powers and their own agendas.
This offers some of the best elements of the D series - spooky, post-apocalyptic atmosphere, wild characters, supernatural fights, and does a much better than usual job of setting up a credible threat to D. As he moves from vamp to vamp, there are moments when you think the bad guys might have a chance, which is pretty rare for D, and makes the fights more interesting.
This is the first two parts of a story that will continue into Volume 15, so the mysteries are still unsolved. Still, I'm interested, and that's awefully impressive, fourteen volumes in.
As always, if you're interested in getting started on Vampire Hunter D, don't start here!Read more ›
