According to all the new modern vampire books, this series is the complete opposite. It takes a while to get into the whole story, but once you touched the glimpse of it you can't get rid off of the book.
Just great, a real kind of traditional vampire novel.
Hohlbein shows us another way of the nature of vampires. Great book.
Highly recommend it to everyone who is into vampires and wants to take a time out of the modern vampire stories.

A aventura começou... e ninguem estava à espera de um terror tão grande
Ich hatte vor bestimmt 5 Jahren das Buch schon einmal in der Hand und es dann wieder weggelegt. Nun habe ich es als Hörbuch nochmal neu in Angriff genommen. Wolfgang Hohlbein ist jetzt nicht mein Lieblingsautor. Er schreibt mir manchmal zu detailliert und ausführlich. Die Story hat sich jedoch gut “anhören” lassen. Es ist die Geschichte von Andrej, der ein Vampir ist ohne es zu wissen. Erst als er den ersten goldenen Ritter tötet, der ebenfalls ein Vampir ist, wird ihm langsam bewusst was wirkli ...more
Un peccato

Un peccato, un occasione persa questo nell'abisso.

Il libro è molto scorrevole, ed è scritto discretamente, si legge tutto d'un fiato tuttavia la parte positiva del commento finisce qui.

Il resto sembra essere ed è tutto già letto, già visto, l'autore sembra essersi ispirato ad highlander per i suoi immortali e anche quando nel momento cruciale il protagonista Andrej scopre la sua vera natura, il vero cuore del libro ebbene tutto scorre quasi senza lasciare traccia.

Probabilmente essendo
Great approach to the vampyrism idea with an amazing German narrator.
Překvapivě zajímavá kniha.

I was partially bugged by the language in this book; repeated use of modern-ish loan words IN DIALOGUE does not fit the historical setting. Plus these vampyr creatures are kind of lame. But I actually finished it, what can't be said about most books I've started lately. That's probably a good thing.
Très bon roman de dark fantasy allemande. Le vampirisme est à peine évoqué mais il est tout de même bien présent. L’intrigue semble bien ficelée, l'ambiance est moyenâgeuse à souhait et les personnages plutôt bien travaillés. On a hâte de lire la suite !

I just read this first book, and nomally I really like Hohlbeins work (or at least I did a few years ago, when I read them) I didn`t really liked this one, it was to much of a mixture between Highlander and a Vampire story for me.
Mein erster Hohlbein! Spannend und actionreich von Anfang bis Ende, und dabei wunderschön geschrieben wie gesprochen. Mehr davon!
Peu palpitant. Ne vaut pas une fanfic lue sur le Web pour passer le temps.
Great series of books. Recommended! Nice touch to vampyrian myth.
Hurra, gleich cover gefunden! Düster düster. Ich mag düstere Helden.
Brutale, langweilige Action.
