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.

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.

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.

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.
