Overview

In Sakuri, a young woman is about to be sacrificed to the vampiric Noblewoman who reigns over the village. But before the princess can drain the life from the woman, a young man tries to slay the vampire. He fails and manages to escape, but in doing so incurs the wrath of the entire town. The citizens of Sakuri have entered into a pact with the Undead princess and her monstrous bodyguards. With the ritual offering disrupted, the vampire's armored bodyguards vow to murder the villagers one by one until the would-be hero is captured.

When Vampire Hunter D learns of the villagers' bargain he knows he faces several almost impossible challenges-can he rid the town of the parasitic demons that plague it? What if Sakuri's inhabitants don't want to be rescued? And can he uncover the secret that even the vampire Noble is afraid to speak?

* The lead character has also been the basis of a best-selling PlayStation console game.

    Perhaps the best

    This might have been my favorite of all the Vampire Hunter D books so far. It was really fantastic. The gorgeous writing style, just like all the others, but with so many new plot ideas. It was almost a Vampire Hunter D meets (dark) Alice in Wonderland. I couldn't put it down. Despite it not being one of the shorter D books, I read it in two sittings. The princess herself was an interesting and compelling villain, and her knights were far more complicated than they seemed in the beginning. What happened with Elena (the girl - there's always a girl) at the end was very different than what normally happens with the girl. Good in every way! Highly recommended!

    Awesome and totally must read!

    I loved this one! Couldn't put it down. By far it is the best one in the series. I have it in both paperback and on Nook!

    A reviewer

    The series has grown from horror to fantasy, but this is not at the price of the original lore and horror that the first novel retained. The art in this novel has improved and feels more complete and cohesive. Very good read, fast paced, and D is still the Vampire Hunting Clint Eastwood of the future.
