The way I feel about the Dracula Chronicles series is thus – if we can wait a whole year to watch the next season of Downton Abbey, we can wait another year to read the next volume of Dracula Chronicles. And one day, we will be waiting for the next TV season of it as well!
5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first volume, I would say, April 19, 2014
This review is from: Dracula Chronicles: Empire of the Crescent Moon (Volume 2) (Paperback)
I re-read the first volume to remind myself of all the details that transpired before starting on book two and transition was absolutely smooth. The second book is even more interesting than the first one. The story and the plot moved to a different land with new challenges and making our young hero, with whom I think we all fell in love with, lose much of his power. Several intertwining Machiavellian, or should I say Byzantine stories, all intersect in a way that makes both storytelling and historical sense. I thought I knew where the story was going toward the end, but boy was I surprised! Hey Victor, where is Gruya, you said he was coming to the rescue!?
