Rate: 4/5 | Goodreads
There is only a handful of novels in Vampire Hunter D series by Hideyuki Kikuchi that I can get, so, yes, I am determined to read them all. Finished the fourth one, called Vampire Hunter D: Tale of the Dead Town.
About the Book: A traveling city, entire metropolis, on an unknown course, and a very strict policy for boarding it or leaving, that almost left D on the other side of the door, except… Against all odds, they have found themselves in need of a vampire hunter, better still if one’s as skilled as D, for who or what could possibly hide here, where every citizen can easily be accounted for?
My Opinion: If I haven’t warned you yet, let me do so now: do not play a drinking game where you take a shot every time D’s described as gorgeous, you will end up in the hospital. Other than this annoying flaw that continues through all of the books, the story was pretty good. An interesting concept of a traveling town, where motion and walls were meant to keep everyone safe from what’s outside. But a single threat on the inside of the walls has turned it into a death trap.
Solid one, a 4 out of 5.
