2.0 out of 5 stars 1, 2, 3 zzzzzzzzz, 29 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twelve: (The Danilov Quintet 1) (Paperback)
The rule is never judge a book by the cover, the cover of this book looks great. I bought the book because it was about vampires although oddly enough the term vampire is not used on the front of the book or the synopsis at the rear.

I found the book tough to read and expected more vampire carnage than it gave. The book is more history than vampire/horror/fantasy. I thought the concept could have been good but the vampire element was lacking.

I expect vampires to have a menace about them however boredom was more of a threat. The story was very slow and the characters underwhelming.

I wanted to like the novel especially as there are going to be another four in the series but the pace of the novel was painful.

If you want an historical account of Napoleon invading Russia in the Nineteenth century then this is a must read.

If on the other hand you want blood and gore try Brian Lumley (by far the best vampire writer).
