Reviews

Second in a projected quintet, this impressive historical-horror novel continues the action of Kent's Twelve (2010), in which Russian secret agent Aleksei Danilov defeated a band of vampires who were concealing their bloody rampage in the social chaos during Napoleon's 1812 invasion. Now a colonel in the Russian army, Aleksei has infiltrated a club of would-be revolutionaries who threaten the life of czar Aleksandr. Though sometimes verbose and melodramatic, this tale is strong enough to earn its length and passion. In particular, the focus deftly shifts between viewpoints to increase tension: as Aleksei's crafty human nemesis manipulates events, Aleksandr idly wonders who owns the yacht anchored near his vacation palace, and the master vampire rests aboard in his coffin and dreams of possessing all of Russia. Notably widening the first novel's scope, this book is hugely ambitious and largely successful. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Many years after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo, Col. Aleksei Ivanovich Danilov continues to act as spy for Tsar Aleksandr I, infiltrating a cabal of officers determined to bring a new government to Russia. As Danilov uncovers more details of the conspiracy, he recognizes signs of infiltration by a group of monstrous creatures who had helped vanquish Napoleon before Danilov destroyed them after he realized their true nature. With a feel for both Russian history and storytelling, Kent (Twelve) continues his alternate history of the Russian Empire, blending fact with dark fantasy that results in an offbeat and gripping vampire tale. VERDICT Capturing the essence of the 19th-century Russian novel, this richly detailed book will appeal to Russophiles as well as fans of vampire fiction. (c) Copyright 2011.
