      Three stories about a Vampire hunting Vampire

      Crimson Cross is a delightfully chilling dark and often gruesome vampire novel which doesn't skimp on the horror of the acts. There's no sex but plenty of "eye popping" violence to sink your teeth into!

      The book is split into three main chapters - named for the young woman involved in each - Rosine, Flora and Maria. First time readers will probably feel a little disorientated in the first chapter (Rosine) as its actually not till the second chapter (Flora) that exactly who this blonde haired vampire hunting vampire is. In fact 'Flora' is more a retrospective piece explaining the history of the main protagonist - Karl von Helsing (yes - a descendant of that famous family) ended up following in his family's footsteps and eventually his turning into a vampire. It would be hard to explain any more without giving away the plot to chapter.

      Its exceedingly well drawn and graphic in the right places leaving not much to the imagination but a delightful vamperic creepy feeling. The translation and the dialogue in overall was excellent and I didn't feel lost, apart from the first reading through the first chapter, but this is remedied as it is not totally confusing, it just leaves you wanting to know more about this mysterious vampire hunting vampire. Its not a manga you can read just once, however, you will find yourself compelled to read it over and over to find the things you missed the first time.

      Well worth a read for the older readers and especially for vampire lovers everywhere
