Trigger Warning: this volume does contain rape and implied incest. Though this is a very minor part of the story, I felt it was enough that a warning should be listed.
Can D solve the mystery before too many people die at the hands of the new type of vampire? Can he solve the mystery before too many people die at the hands of their own protectors?
Great story, great illustrations, great second book to the ongoing Japanese horror series. I will be collecting as many as I can. Get it used or new!
-'s: the actual story line is slightly less amazing than the first Vampire Hunter D novel, there are some editorial problems that are in this book unlike in the first, for example I noticed on the first read at least 2 blatant mispellings and a small handful of words that were obviously supposed to be something else, also the illustrations and test dont always line up as well as they did in VHD1.
+'s: amazing translation work and another glimpse into one of the most darkly beautiful post-apocolyptic worlds ever created. Kikuchi is a literary GOD and Vampire Hunter D is a worthy divine progeny
unusual. I purchased these books because I liked the two movies made from them so far. Turns out the books are much better than the movies.

An enjoyable read with minimal editing errors, despite it being an English translation of Japanese text. The only complaint I have is the lack of resolution with the Mayor. (That man need to meet the pointy end of D’s sword)
Highly recommend, do yourself a favour and pick this one up, you won’t be disappointed.
With creatures manifested from the nobles and beasts spawned from the subconscience this book is well worth the time. Science mixed with fiction gives the reader an insight to what the vampires/dhampirs are (cell structure ect)and why.
The illustrations found within the book are a joy to look upon. Helps set character development.
The characters in the book are boisterous be it Lina and dark like the Mayor. However even the isolated D will come forth slighty as a character and his "apprentice" makes it thus so.
NOTE: The review is brief because it is to give insight to a future reader and is not a full synopsis of the story. This review is written to not spoil the peice of fiction but to give understanding to the book.
