Vampire Hunter D #15: Dark Road: Part 3
2 journalers for this copy...
You can read most of my comments on this story arc HERE in the review for the earlier book.
I still thought there were a lot of elements underutilized in this book, particularly the character of Lord Rocambole. Normally this series doesn't shy away from messy (both in the sense of gory and in messing with each other's minds) family fights, so I was disappointed by an apparent set-up for one of these that went nowhere. Perhaps Kikuchi figured there had been enough of that in VHD:Twin-Shadowed Knight that readers wouldn't be looking for more just yet.
I'll admit to not having predicted the plot twist near the end of this book. I need to stop falling for the frail, swooning damsel act. :-)
NOTE: Originally this storyline was told over 3 books, but for the English version the first two were combined into one volume, hence this being marked as Part 3 even though there are only two books.
Although this and the previous volume aren't great examples of the series, if someone wants to read the series they'll probably want these books.
