Library Journal - 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.

First, let me say that the previous book in this storyline was an excellent read, definitely five stars. It was so good I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Imagine my dismay when I read this drivel. The plot is original and the characters are well-developed from the first book. I got the impression that the author was required to write a sequel and did not give a flip what he wrote about, just as long as the pages had words on them and he could get his paycheck.

This book picks up right where the story left off. No time is wasted to get right back into the intense startling action on a national scale. The story holds many more surprises and twists which keep you hooked only after reading a few sentences. Once you get started you will find it hard to put down. Every page holds a new and unexpected surprise. If you're craving adventure, mystery, and action on a twisted sadistic level, you can't go wrong with Nazi vampires.

ENJOY THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES!!!
