Publisher's Summary

The immortal knight, Sir Richard of Ashbury, hunts his nemesis through centuries of war....

AD 1190, England. A young knight's family is slaughtered. As the lords of Europe seek to retake Jerusalem from the mighty Saladin, Sir Richard swears an oath of vengeance against Earl William de Ferrers, who has returned from the dead with an insatiable thirst for violence.

Richard stalks William and his savage knights across Europe to the Holy Land, fights in the crusades' bloodiest battles alongside Richard the Lionheart and unearths a secret of great evil under the hills of Palestine.

Vampires = Jesus?

Very interesting take on Christianity and vampirism. I never made the connection of Jesus's redirection and how this could be connected to vampires. The book itself is worth the read which I read several years ago and was glad to see this book came out on audible. Good mix of action, interpretation of mythology, and the crusades themselves.

V. Perry is a puke

I don’t write reviews although I suspect I have listened to or read more books then most over the last 5 years. This is a entertaining reading or listening. The reason I am posting this is I am sick and tired of people that feel the need to rip books apart. I just want to be entertained for how many hours it takes to read or listen. I am not looking for a life changing experience, just keep me into it and Dan did that. You aren’t getting points for picking at strings v.perry. If you want to find a story that is fun to listen or read and don’t think you are a Oscar voter this is a good book. It is smooth and easy to get into and enjoy.

That being said, I have read every one of the books in this series and enjoyed them all! This isn’t anything that will change your life but that isn’t what I was looking for!

Historical fiction at its finest - with vampires!

I enjoyed this audio book immensely! I've read the excellent Dan Davis series in kindle already and loved John Lee's narration, he really brought the characters to life.
Vampire crusader is a wild story, loads of excitement, battle and bloodshed. I'm really fond of our fallible hero, Richard and love the humour in Davis' storytelling. This is historical fiction at its finest, with real events and characters woven into a vampire narrative - very cleverly executed!
Looking forward to listening to vampire outlaw asap.

Surprisingly good

And I don’t mean that in a derogatory manner, the synopsis does not really do the book justice, it’s Grimdark vampire history reimagined! And with a great narrator

Excellent story with the perfect narrator

It may not be the most original story in the world, but it is unique and fantastically narrated. The book starts out strong and does not slow down in the slightest. Not a single word is wasted on superfluous characters or story arcs. It follows a tight path of adventure and danger throughout. I love that the hero is not some virtuous good boy but a man with flaws, filled with fury, and bent on revenge at whatever the cost. He is clearly a man of his time, and while he acknowledges the darker side of his character and actions, he makes no apologies for it. Well done, gentlemen.

good idea for story

The concept to me is better than the execution. This is a very good premise for a book, there just feels something missing in the way it is told. The 1st person narrative by the end starts to bind. That said I do not usually go for historically set novels, but the plot was new to me and held me to the end.

A wee gem

Really surprise how good this was - well written, good characters and dialog with the feeling of historical accuracy. Romped sling but not predictable with some good plot twists. John Lee a good narrator although he only appears to have about 8 voices, previously used in Peter . F. Hamilton novels so weird flashbacks on hearing the characters. Nevertheless well read at a good pace.
