A character driven novel Feb. 14 2007
By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

Far above the other books Sept. 10 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

A wonderful must read book in the series Aug. 31 2008
By Ditzyhorse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this series. Its not flashy or obvious like western novels and styles of writing. In this book we get to experience yet another side of D. I enjoyed the fact the tale was different from the others. Here D is escorting 4 people across a desert and the foe they face is fascinating and sad at the same time.

I loved the fact the girl in this book wasn't after D but had her own troubles to contend with. She had been captured 8 years ago and was a servant serving in a nobel house. It is hinted at that D's father was either a visitor or lived at the same house and that there was contact between the two.

I loved that fact that this book fits in with others in the series, namely book 2 in looking at the obsession that D's father had with creating a superior being. A hybred between Nobel and man with all of the strengths and very few of the weaknesses. D was his only success. This book explores more of that side of the nobel history and where it stands at the present time this book is set.

The treads running through all the novels a drawing together IMO. But there are still questions. Why does D hunt Nobels. Is it really because he isn't fit for anything else? Is it vengence on his father?

Spoiler - we also find out in this novel that a dhampirs child will also be a dhampir which I didn't know before. Soooooo if D ever breaks down and sires a child on a woman it will be the same as he is and his fathers wish for creating a new race of super beings would be furfilled. Makes me think this is one of the main reasons D keeps his distance from the ladies. If a new race of beings like D were to spread with all of the strengths of the nobels and none of the weakness then the nobels would rise again. Or at least I think so.

Im not sure where Hideyuki Kikuchi is going with this series but Im glad that at least with this novel we get to see a bit further into the mystery that is D.

Best. One. Yet Feb. 22 2007
By HCarlton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

D in the OLD west. Oct. 28 2008
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pilgrimage of the Sacred and the Profane is Vampire Hunter D in the OLD West. Bandits, a cruel desert and an unknown enemy against a band of people trying to survive. People who don't really like each other. People who each have their own reason for crossing the desert, their own back story, their own skills and weapons. Sounds like a western to me!
While it may seem that D is too powerful to kill I can say, as I am now on volume 7, that he does run into more and more powerful enemies. In other words, in the future his sword will NOT kill with the first swing. In other words, the novels do build on each other. By showing us D as an almost perfect Vampire Hunter in the earlier novels THEN giving him enemies who can counter act some of his attacks, the author is twisting the rules a tad, showing us that D DOES have to be wary.
In other words, he is now rewarding those who have gotten this far. Keep going! The desert is almost at a end!
