From the Publisher
The third novel in Jasper Kent''s enthralling, chilling and
acclaimed historical vampire sequence -- The Danilov Quintet.
Russia 1855. After forty years of peace in Europe, war rages. In
the Crimea, the city of Sevastopol is besieged. In the north, Saint
Petersburg is blockaded. But in Moscow there is one who needs only
to sit and wait -- wait for the death of an aging tsar, and for the
curse upon his blood to be passed to a new generation.
As their country grows weaker, a brother and sister -- each unaware
of the other''s existence -- must come to terms with the legacy
left them by their father. In Moscow, Tamara Valentinovna Lavrova
uncovers a brutal murder and discovers that it is not the first in
a sequence of similar crimes, merely the latest, carried out by a
killer who has stalked the city since 1812.
And in Sevastopol, Dmitry Alekseevich Danilov faces not only the
guns of the combined armies of Britain and France, but must also
make a stand against creatures that his father had thought buried
beneath the earth, thirty years before.
