From Library Journal
Detective John Drummond returns to Europe to continue his pursuit of a vampire host born during the last days of the Third Reich. This time he must convince a society of immortal Crusaders-vampires themselves-to end their isolated existence and join in a battle from which no victors may emerge. Although this second volume in a series created by Katherine Kurtz suffers from awkward writing, the popularity of its subject matter will ensure a wide readership. For large fantasy and horror collections.

Action, adventure, intrigue, and vampires! There are lots of spies and counter spies, fast cars, gun battles, sword fights, and a beautiful, independent woman, too. This is definitely a series for those who have no taste for sparkly vampires attracted to teen-aged girls.
This book like the first one leaves the reader with a lot of questions as to what is going to happen next. I want to answers and I am sure other earlier readers want them too.
Seriously, I could not put this book down during the last 3 or 4 chapters because the action was so intense; my heart is still pounding from the adrenaline rush.
Yes, some of the little details do tend to get boring, but without the details, you loose the sense of the characters. I had no problem with the amount of gore. In fact, compared to the usual books I read, this is quite tame. The only problem I had was trying to find a copy of the first book. I have to rate this as one of the better books I have read. And I have read thousands.
The character of Drummond is well played, although their are some inconsistencies. The authors did an excellent job of writing the scenes at the old casle with the Knights. The ! ! opening with the first deaths was very well done. The descriptions of the way in which the two lovers died is eerie. The ending is not overly surprizing, but it still manages to get your attention.
All in all, I found the book a very good read. I recommond it to anyone who has a good idea of what is reality and what is not. Also, if you just enjoy reading a book without having to worry about it being believable or not. Thank you.
