Vampire Crusader – Book Review

Vampire Crusader

Author, Dan Davis

Book Summary

“He was crusader, outlaw, khan. He was a count, a cavalier and a cardinal. William was a murderer, a devil. A vampire.”

England, 1189. Earl William de Ferrers and his six knights slaughter the family and servants of Ashbury Manor. The victims have had their throats ripped to shreds. The killers flee for the Holy Land.

Richard of Ashbury, a young knight alone in the world and brother of the murdered lord, swears an oath of vengeance to the dying Lady Isabella. Richard tracks Earl William and his men to the Mediterranean where the Third Crusade is just beginning.

Along the way he falls in love with Alice, a beautiful and lonely young widow taking her children to find a future in the land of Christ. Alice is everything he ever wanted but can Richard be a good husband and also fulfil his oath?

Unarmed in a dark dungeon Richard grapples Rollo, a disgusting Norman monster. In the hills of Palestine he crosses swords with the undefeated Hugo the Giant. In his great hall he fights for his life against the merciless evil of Ralph the Reaper. These battles lead Richard ever closer to the climactic confrontation in a cavern of blood…

Vampire Crusader is the first part of the Immortal Knight Chronicles, a dark fantasy, historical horror series that spans 800 years from the 12th Century to the present day. William creates vampires. Richard destroys them. And Richard will have his vengeance or die fighting.

Book Review

I love historical fiction and author, Dan Davis didn’t let me down. His book, ‘Vampire Crusader’, kept me on the edge of my seat. I felt like I was right there in the action.

The plot was good, with plenty of action, deceit, and the coming of truth. There were plenty of twists and turns. The characters are strong and sometimes surprise the reader.

I highly recommend this book to history and vampire lovers!

I was provided with a free pdf copy, from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
