About the Book
While the Oprichniki's primary reason for journeying to Russia is to stop the French, one of them takes a different path. For he has a different agenda, he is to be the nightmare instrument of revenge on the Romanovs. Now the time has come: it is 1825.
From the Publisher
1825 - Europe and Russia have been at peace for ten
years. Bonaparte is long dead and the threat of invasion is no
more. For Colonel Aleksei Ivanovich Danilov, life is peaceful. Not
only have the French been defeated but so have the twelve monstrous
creatures he once fought alongside, and then against, ten or more
years ago. His duty is still to serve and to protect his tsar,
Aleksandr the First.
But now the one who was betrayed by the Romanovs has returned to
exact revenge for what has been denied him. And for Aleksei,
knowing this chills his very soul. For it seems the vile pestilence
that once threatened all he believed in and all he held dear has
returned, thirteen years later…

"In the end, as much as I loved Twelve, I enjoyed Thirteen Years
Later just as much, if not more, and if Jasper Kent can continue
this high level of excellence in the remaining sequels, then I
strongly believe that the Danilov Quintet will end up being one of
the best vampire series I have ever read...."
-Fantasy Book Critic
"…impressive historical-horror novel… this book is hugely ambitious
and largely successful."
