Book Description

Dec 5 2006 Vampire Hunter D (Book 6)
Granny Viper is a "people finder," a searcher for lost souls along the roads of a forbidding wasteland. Her latest mission: the safe return of a young woman named Tae, kidnapped eight years ago by vampire Nobility and held in Castle Gradinia on the Frontier's far border. But rescuing Tae is only half the battle—Viper knows she and the girl can't cross the formidable expanse to the town of Barnabas alone. After making the fatal mistake of hiring the mercenary Bullow Brothers to help her, Granny turns to the legendary Vampire Hunter D for salvation. As they traverse the bleak desert between the Inner and Outer Frontier, the two women and D find themselves in a race for their lives. And they soon discover how cruel the desert is—and how very ruthless the Bullow Brothers are . . .

* Features six illustrations by the renowned Yoshitaka Amano, illustrator of Neil Gaiman's Sandman: The Dream Hunters.

4.0 out of 5 stars A character driven novel Feb. 14 2007
By Anna - Published on
The "bad guy" in this particular novel is largely environmental, so the installment focuses more on the charaters than the action sequences- a truly fabulous development in my book. D himself is somewhat more "emotional" in this novel, giving us a chance to see how he feels about being a dhampir and his father's mission.

Granny Viper is an interesting character, her angery outbursts at seemingly random intervals come together in the end to help highlight the character development of D with ever seeming designed for the purpose.

The novel's coquette, Tae, is likable even though she never seems to manage the depth of Doris or the forcefulness of Leila. She brings out the human-ness in D but not though swanlike tragedy but calm resolve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far above the other books Sept. 10 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I've been tearing through the D books for the past few weeks, enjoying them to varying degrees. This one breaks the mold of the previous books; there's no vampire to kill, no maiden to save, just a band of people attempting to cross a very dangerous desert.

I wouldn't call this book character-driven, but the characters are much stronger than in the previous outing. D gets shows some emotion this time around, even if his demeanor rarely changes. However, the real star of the book is Granny Viper, by far the most complex character that Kikuchi's written.

If you only get to buy one entry in the series, make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best. One. Yet Feb. 22 2007
By HCarlton - Published on
In this installation of the ongoing Vampire Hunter D series Hideyuki seamlessly and beautifully blends his three favourite genres; Horror, Western, and Fantasy.

After being greatly disappointed with the previous book, this one was a great save, filled with interesting characters and mind-boggling fantasy elements. But never fear, there is still plenty of blood and fang-baring including many references to "Him" or Dracula himself.

All in all, this is my favourite Hideyuki novel so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book From Hideyuki Kikuchi! :) July 15 2007
By Crystal Nelson - Published on
I can't get enough of the Vampire Hunter D Series! :) I have read almost all the books expect for 7. All the Vampire Hunter D books are wonderful.

What can I say without spoiling the book too much??? This time our extermemly good looking dark hero D. As a Mission to go across the hot and deadly dessert to do whatever bussiness. In a bar he meets Granny Viper who is a people finder. And the two Bullow Brothers Bingo and Clay.

At first it is unclear what D's Mission is. Granny pushes him to go along with her to the other side of the dessert to help her bring back a girl name Tae back to her family. The Bullow brothers and Granny follow D across the dessert. Further as one reads the dessert is not what it appears to be. And the plot is very twisten and it will surpise you at the very end.

It was a wonderful read and I can't wait to read the next book. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Never Read Another Book, at least pick this one! Feb. 10 2009
By C. Schofield - Published on
Possibly one of the best in the series, Pilgrimage, while containing no direct Nobles, there is mention of one, and the elements that come to light in this one with a living desert, a man that fights with dreams, and the very real struggle of a young woman carrying a dhampir child, and that is what makes this one of the greater Vampire Hunter D novels! Personally, I would like to see a series made of all the books as movies or something, but I suppose they may butcher them... Still, a very good read! And a great collection to any vampire-lover's library!
