-Colmillos y combates durante Barbarroja.-

Género. Narrativa fantástica.

Interesting idea, but the vampire mythos falls a little flat. It's simply not enough these days to have vampires from the carpathian regions wearing capes, avoiding sunlight, turning into mists, into bats, drinking blood for it's devine, et cetera, et cetera . . .

Still, cool concept.

My favorite thing about this book were the typos. My, oh my . . . I really enjoyed:

This story goes back to basics with vampire lore, which I appreciate in these days of invincible teenage vampires. The characters are likable and share such battlefield camaraderie you find yourself worrying about their destinies as things get darker and darker for them, hoping they pull through every impossible-to-win battle. I have some issues with the ending, but I won't comment on it; I guess it was necessary to keep the series going.
