Once again, another amazing book in the Vampire Hunter D Series. I did not want to put it down at any point.

I don't think it would be possible to fit any more action into a book. I was said that this and the part one in Vampire Hunter D Volume 7: Mysterious Journey to the North Sea, Part One: Mysterious Journey to the North Sea Pt. 1, v.7 was going to be the next Vampire Hunter D to get the anime treatment. These two books are the first time since the Vampire Hunter D [1985] [DVD] and Vampire Hunter D Volume 1 that D has really been pushed to his limits. On 3 occasions he had to go into full Vamp mode to win, and he even had to use his brain to out think one of his opponents. D talks a lot more in this story, and there is a lot more interaction between him and his left hand, who it comes out might even be older then D himself. Something that was missing in the other books were Vampires in them D is dealing with their leftovers. This book more than makes up for it D has a number of skilled opponents who become more dangerous by becoming Vampires/Nobles. The story even has more of a happy ending then other D books.

refreshing 1 April 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was refreshing, there were a lot of elements, characters involved. D finally gets pushed around and tricked and even dies, again. But man, that left hand is great, I can't wait to see if the future books will give us a flash back book about when D was a bit younger and how he met up w/ Lefty. Most likely, I feel like Dracula left Lefty just for D and for D's purpose (to finish off the Nobility, and I feel that Dracula doesn't actually have a blood lust/thurst, and he's dissapointed @ his creations because he probably expected something else.) I think he is now in the process of creating new life forms w/out blood lust and D's job is to clean up his messes. Just a few words for thought. this was a great read. Movie....I don't know....mini series....ohhh yeah.....

Easy read to pass the time 8 July 2013

This was a fun read I guess, though I can't help but feel the author has a rather old fashioned view of women.
Great ending to the first part; D gets more personality than ever before 13 Feb. 2008
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the eighth book in the Vampire Hunter D series by Hideyuki Kikuchi. This book picks up right where the last book left off; in the middle of a fight.

D struggles (as much as he ever struggles) to protect the pearl from the evil people that plot to steal it from him. He also is protecting Win-Lu from all of the people going after the pearl. There are numerous battle and even more evil-doers than ever before. You finally find out what the pearl is and why it is so important.

As I mentioned when reviewing part 1; this book is somewhat different from the other books in the Vampire Hunter D series in that D is more "human" than ever before. D shows emotion and shows that he has faults like everyone else. Win-Lu is a strong character with a dry sense of humor that makes the book fun. You get to spend a lot more time with D's left hand and his hand also has a sense of wit to rival Win-Lu's.

This was a great book with non-stop action. You are actually left wondering at points if D will give up his wandering for a bit and make this town a temporary home. This book gives some nostalgic insight into how things were with the nobility before disaster struck. Of course more mystery is presented regarding who, and what, D is. Some hints are given as to D's origin but nothing is answered for sure.

I look forward to the next book in the series. Although there is a long way to go in this series. I read somewhere that in Japan book 18 was just released. Good thing I like these books because it looks like I will have a lengthy relationship with them :-)

A good ending 21 Oct. 2007
By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provided a good, though not decisive, ending to the story begun in volume seven. The theme of this book is mostly about finding acceptance for the things you have done in the past as well as finding a place to belong in the future. Su-in finds out why the vampire in the sea holds such a fascination for her and one or two of the bad guys gets mostly redeemed.

Character development for D takes a suprising turn when we see him consistantly on the losing end of battle-- to the point of being parted from left-hand. While there are few clear defeats there are enough battles that end in a draw that one begins to wonder if D is really invested in the fights. Couple that with the fact that the "bead" that brought about the whole tale turns out to be a non issue, you begin to wonder at the direction this installment seems to be leading the series. I, for one, can't wait for Rose Princess to be released to find out.
Out with a bang 6 Sept. 2007
By Nicolas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow, I have to say this book was far better than any of the other ones so far. A perfect blend of drama and action, some of the more relevant art work yet, and is the first in a huge leap in characterization. The main heroes and villains are all well developed throughout the story(with the exception of two-ish)and with so many villains your always kept guessing what's next. It is a fitting end to Kikuchi's first run, before rebooting the franchise in 1995 with the Rose Princess. In his post-script he describes it as one of his favorite projects, and it's easily one of his best. There is one thing though, the amazon rating system is very flawed. Former D books have been given 4-4.5, so I had to give such an exceptional volume a 5, but in actuality it is really a 4.3 on my scale, as the average D book would be a 3 and a better one a 3.5.
