Some novels just grip you hard and refuse to let go The Last Rite is definitely one of those and as the title suggests the last in a series as a review novel I was given the fourth instalment in this series a little while back and whilst confusing as you would expect starting with the fourth it was a very compelling read so my bank account got a little worse off while my bookshelves got a little fuller and I started back at the beginning no regrets at all So now we are 105 years ahead and the Russian vampire tale is finally reaching the end and what an end it turns out to be the narrative takes a slightly different style in this novel this works though if fits in with the progress in the timeline and development of the characters in focus very well luckily considering that in the blurb you already know Zymeevich a major player in this series is dead Kent does have a tendancy to delve very deep into the descriptive for some this may make the pace feel a little slow but it does not take anything away from the uality Reading up in order is very highly recommended with the Danilov uintet as a stand alone The Last Rite would most likely make for a pretty good read but I do think it would be uite a struggle at the same time

These days vampire stories are a dime a dozen Indeed the majority of them have nothing original to differentiate them from the rest of the often lackluster pack Yet by mixing his own tale with Russian historical fiction with the Danilov uintet Jasper Kent created something definitely uniue compelling and thoroughly enjoyableTwelve Thirteen Years Later The Third Section and The People s Will were all engaging and satisfying reads And with this last installment I was looking forward to see what sort of grand finale Kent had in store for his readers Spanning over a century and generations of Romanov and Danilov family members I was eager to discover just how this epic tale would come to an end And I wasn t disappointedHere s the blurbRussia 1917 Zmyeevich king of all vampires is deadHistory records that the great voordalak known across Europe as Dracula perished in 1893 beneath the ramparts of his own castle deep in the mountains of Wallachia In Russia the Romanov tsars are free of the curse that has plagued their blood for two centuriesBut two decades later and Tsar Nicholas II faces a new threat a threat from his own people War has brought Russia to her knees and the people are hungry for change Revolution is in the airMihail Konstantinovich Danilov who himself carries Romanov blood welcomes the prospect of a new regime Like his ancestors he once fought to save the Romanovs from the threat that Zmyeevich brought them Fought and won But now he sees no future for a Russia ruled by a tyrant He is joined in the struggle by his uncle Dmitry Alekseevich a creature born in a different era over a century before For than half his existence he has been a vampire and yet he still harbours one very human desire that his country should be freeBut the curse that infects the blood of the Romanovs cannot be so easily forgotten and Mihail soon discovers that it that he may become the means by which a terror once thought eradicated might be resurrected The historical backdrop for The Last Rite is the Russian revolution of 1917 which was triggered by a combination of economic breakdown war weariness and discontent with the Tsars that ultimately led to seizure of power by the Communist Bolsheviks As is usually his wont Jasper Kent s flair and his eye for historical details capture the minutiae of the day to day life in Russia during that particular era and create an evocative narrative that never fails to dazzle the eye However though this marks an extremely important moment from an historical perspective the author didn t uite manage to weave these momentous events with his various plotlines the way he was able to in the fourth volume It doesn t take anything away from the overall reading experience but it would have been nice if the brewing revolution had taken center stage and influenced every plotline and protagonist in the same manner as in The People s WillThis novel features the point of view of Mihail Konstantinovich Danilov Along with his mother as a youth he devoted his entire existence to the destruction of vampires More than three decades have passed since he killed Iuda and Mihail is now an old man with heart problems With Russia on the brink of revolution Mihail s life is about to change once as his past catches up with him There was an unanticipated and shocking surprise as to what the other main protagonist turned out to be I can t elaborate on that specific POV for it would be a major spoiler Needless to say these two points of view create an interesting balance as we witness events occurring through the eyes of such disparate characters Characterization has always been a highlight in the Danilov uintet and it s certainly no exception once again with The Last RiteBoth Thirteen Years Later and The Third Section suffered from occasional pacing issues and the same can be said of this final instalment The People s Will was pretty much a page turner but the rhythm drags in certain portions of this book Still once the endgame has begun from that point on the novel becomes impossible to put downEver since I read Twelve and learned that the series would follow the Danilov family through the generations at the way to the Russian Revolution I ve been wondering how Jasper Kent would bring this story to a close Although there is some foreshadowing throughout The Last Rite I never saw the end coming Everything comes full circle with the sort of great finale that does justice to this epic tale of vampiresI mention this in every single review if you are looking for an intriguing blend of Russian historical fiction and paranormal fiction Kent s Danilov uintet is definitely what the doctor ordered If you want to read something different this series deserves the highest possible recommendation Indeed this should intrigue and satisfy even the most jaded genre fiction readersThe Last Rite is a fitting end to a superior series Jasper Kent s Danilov uintet is definitely one of the very best speculative fiction series of the new millennium Do yourself a favor and read these booksFor reviews wwwfantasyhotlistblogspotcom
