5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful must read book in the series Aug. 31 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars when is the end....? March 31 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book dragged, really dragged, I wanted to stop so many times, but kept reading because I'm a fan. The antagonists were so menacing but yet it always and it did take just one swing/throw of his sword/left hand wooden spike to kill the bad guys. I like these books, but it builds you up just for that swing of the sword, usually and always one stroke will finish the opposing force. This makes me wonder, how damn powerful D really is, he never, never ever sweats a fight. over all, i'll keep reading, cause i'm a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars D in the OLD west. Oct. 28 2008
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book From Hideyuki Kikuchi! :) July 15 2007
By Crystal Nelson - Published on
Format: Paperback
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. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A character driven novel Feb. 14 2007
By Anna - Published on
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.
