From the Publisher
Part historical adventure, part vampire thriller -- the fifth and final darkly chilling chapter in Jasper Kent''s acclaimed ''Danilov Quintet''.
Mihail Konstantinovich Danilov -- who himself carries Romanov blood -- welcomes the prospect of a new regime. Like his ancestors he once fought to save the Romanovs from the threat that Zmyeevich brought them. Fought and won. But now he sees no future for a Russia ruled by a tyrant. He is joined in the struggle by his uncle, Dmitry Alekseevich - a creature born in a different era, over a century before. For more than half his existence he has been a vampire, and yet he still harbours one very human desire; that his country should be free.
But the curse that infects the blood of the Romanovs cannot be so easily forgotten and Mihail soon discovers that it – that he – may become the means by which a terror once thought eradicated might be resurrected.
