Russian officer Dmitry Danilov leads his troops in the battle for Sevastopol. Even here in the midst of terrible carnage a new horror appears. The body of a soldier is found with his throat torn out and drained of blood. Only Dmitry understands the hideous truth behind this murder, but no one would believe him, of course. Voordalak (vampires) are only myth. Meanwhile, in Moscow lives Tamara Lavrova, a secret agent for the tsar's Third Section, which has the mandate to investigate political crimes. The biological relationship between Alexi and Tamara becomes evident early on, but what will fascinate the reader is their link with Vasiliy Yudin, a ruthless scientist and sociopath with links to the voordalak and knowledge of the secret of the Romanov Betrayal. VERDICT Although theÅstory lags a bit when the protagonists begin ruminating over their personal problems, Kent's third series entry (after Twelve and Thirteen Years Later) still manages to weave military history and chilling, paranormal horror into an engaging tale.-Patricia Altner, BiblioInfo.com, Columbia, MD (c) Copyright 2011.
