Well, like most Vampire Hunter D books this one suffers from too many purple prose, and the unwavering perfection of the main character. I'm referring to the constant reminders of D's beauty and infallible skill at killing things stronger than he is. It gets old after a while. These novels read like just passable fanfiction, and I'm not sure it it's actually because of the author, or the translation, or a combination of both.

Now despite all that the Rose princess is an interesting story. It doesn't actually focus on D as much as other novels. This volume even manages to have a female heroine that kicks a lot of ass. Even the villian is interesting.

This light novel makes for good brain candy and is a quick read.
