This is a standard D entry. It is equal parts baffling and entertaining. D is accompanying a group of both humans and Nobles as a bunch of freaks attack them. I know that synopsis must be shocking. Kikuchi deserves credit for thinking up all these various abilities.

**very minor spoilers**

The winning line is - 'The movements of this man who'd been chopped through the backbone were so elegant, they could've made the moon itself swoon.'

Honestly, if this was not a D book, it probably would have gott

It took me a long long time to get through this book. Some of that was likely Hunter D burnout, from reading 7 books back to back. the last few books seemed to have similar characters, with a lovely young woman who was in love with D--if not several-- and several human children that either were orphans or became orphans and needed rescuing though they were very brave, a cast of superhuman/Noble creations that were out to kill D, yet always attacked singly or by twos instead of en masse, and some ...more

Okay - I do NOT get why they seem to be unable or unwilling to put an entire story in one book. Now I have to wait a year or so to read part 3 and the conclusion of this particular episode in D's life. Why?

I'm still enjoying reading these books, but I do not understand how/why the Noblity do not seem to know who D is until it's too late. It's the last few minutes of their lives when they realize he is the Sacred Ancestor's offspring. Why? Are they that oblivious to the fact that he whips their a

this vampire hunter d novel continue to tradition of good solid novels in the series by kikuchi. this one finds d making a promise to a dying woman that he will protect her children from an incredibly powerful noble who has come back and is promising revenge on a family that helped to send him away. along the way is a classic vampire hunter d novel in that there are many enemies and d kicks their collective arses! good book if you're a fan of the series!
The divinely handsome D finds himself up against an exiled Noble, one banned to outer space by the Sacred Ancestor himself. As the dangers mount and assassins gather for the kill, the novel piles on the fight scenes, outrageous castles, bizarre enemies and a convoluted plotline that makes it difficult to tell who’s dead and who’s merely faking it. Exciting, aggravating and mind-bogglingly Byzantine, this is a novel for the truly dedicated D aficionados only.

I found this to be a great read even though the number of pages advertised and the actual book were 2 differnt numbers. Like all the other VHD books the characters that were in this one all stood out on thier own, each having their own personality, and motive. I'm already looking foward to getting the second part of this later this year.

What is there to say? If you've read one, you've read them all... and I'm really glad that there's a solid audience for the incredibly repetitive tales of the gorgeous dhampir, his possessed left hand, and his cyborg horse. Different strokes, y'all.

These stories still fascinate me, even though D has changed during the years. He's become more talkative and more social among others; but the coldness within him has grown too. Intriguing character...

Delightful book! And I'm looking forward to this story's conclusion in the next volume which should be released in English this Fall.
