'Bloodsworn' is the third and, so far, last book in the 'Ulrika the Vampire' series and it is easily the best of the three. The books blot is good and really puts Ulrika through the wringer as she suffers betrayal and attacks at every turn. My favourite part of the book has to be the period when Ulrika gives into the von Carstein side of her bloodline and shows us what she is truly capable of should she put her mind to it. The book also has some nice fight scenes and sees the conclusion of some of the plot threads from the first book in the series.
The book introduces some interesting characters for both the Lahmian and von Carstein sides such as the manipulative Count Grigor von Messinghof and the human mercenary Captain Stahleker. Ulrika's character continues to evolve quite well in this book as well as the plot forces her to commit acts that she wouldn't have dreamed of in previous books but feel like a relatively natural progression here. The book also has a nice cameo by both the Emperor Karl Franz and his Champion Ludwig Schwarzhelm.
While the book is generally quite well written, there are a few points in the narrative that could have been a little clearer but they were relatively few and far between.Read more ›
Originally from the Gotrek & Felix series, Ulrika was Felix's former love interest. The Kislevite noble traveled with Gotrek, Felix, and Max Schreiber, and was then kidnapped by Krieger in Sylvania, who turned her. Bloodborn, the first in the series, took place between her appearances in Vampireslayer, and Manslayer (both Gotrek & Felix novels).
In Bloodforged, the second Ulrika book, the young vampire has had her fill of the Lhamian vampires in Nuln, and tries to strike out on her own. Unfortunately, when she arrives in Praag, she has conflicts with the Praag vampires who demand that she pledge her loyalty to Boyarina Evgena or be killed.
In the first book, Ulrika was somewhat pitiful, gaining only slightly more self-control in the second book. She doesn't really make much personal progress from one book to the next, until Bloodsworn - when she finally takes a stand against both humans and vampires, determined to remain free from any "chains" in her life.Read more ›
Count Grigor von Messinghof of Sylvania is who masterminded the vampire revolt, but that was only the beginning. Von Messinghof plots the assassination of Emperor Karl Franz and to use the Lahmians as scapegoats. Once the Empire has been destabilized, the most ancient and evil of mankind's enemies will return from the grave to drown them all in an ocean of blood. Mannfred von Carstein lives! And Ulrika's vengeance would be glorious!
***** FIVE STARS! The brilliantly warped mind of Nathan Long is impossible to predict. As a vampire, Ulrika has been just as honorable as when her heart still beat.Read more ›
