tr 2015 Russia Zmyeevich, King Of All Vampires, Is DeadHistory Records That The Great Voordalak Known Across Europe As Dracula Perished In 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 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 quality Reading up in order is very highly recommended with the Danilov quintet, as a stand alone The Last Rite would most likely make for a pretty good read but I do think it would be quite a struggle at the same time.
I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review Russia 1917 Zmyeevich, king of all vampires, is dead History 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 centuries.
But 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 air.
Mihail 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 free.
But 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 resurrectedThis is book 5 of the Danilov Quartet And what a great series this has beenWhen I started this series, I had grown bored of vampires, and their ilk, as it had been done to death and I didn t feel like there was anything new on offer Then I found Twelve and everything changed The best thing about this book and the series as a whole has been the connection to historical events This one ties in with the Russian Revolution and the story telling here is just fantastic I found myself wondering how this series was going to finish and, although there were some hints along the way, I was pleasantly surprised with the conclusion.
The only downside for me was that, at times, the pacing of this novel was just a bit off I felt like the story dragged through the middle parts like it was just waiting to get the end But once the end arrived, it was brilliant PaulARH A Satisfying Ending Review of The Last Rite The Danilov Quintet 5 Review originally posted on Cyn s Workshop What makes this novel compelling is the historical context in which the events are taking place, and amongst everything else that is also what makes the novel stand out The series began with Twelve, taking place in 1812 during Napoleon s Russian campaign which we all know failed utterly and it ends here, during the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 The series spans 102 years worth of history, taking a focus on a country that has so much upheaval, while also keeping them all the same characters intact, even those who were present in the story.
Throughout the series the characters have been so captivating, growing from novel to novel, but also passing along from generation to generation But the premise, for the most part, has always been the same defeat and destroy the vampires that plague their great Russia It s a concept that one would see in the Enquirer Russia under Vampire Leader, but the way that Kent presents the novel is remarkable This is a story it is about the characters and how they are pushed to their limits while also capturing the internal struggle of these characters The characters all have some baggage, and not all of it is personal Political belief has a strong imprint on these characters That is not to say that it is a political novel because it is not, but the reality is that these types of things affect people in so many ways In the novel, the reader gets to see how these characters are motivated and why they are motivated the way they are This adds a level of reality to the novel that doesn t subtract from the paranormal but instead adds to it These vampires are than just monsters, emotionless monsters most definitely, but there is so much to them than just what many have written about them These are not vampires anyone wants to meet in real life, and that air of darkness that Kent has woven around them, it is breathtaking because it is different Characterization is essential in this series, and Kent makes sure to have the story revolve around them with exceptional writing.
As for the story itself, there are points where the novel drags, leaving the reader to wonder where exactly the story is going In the previous novel, readers saw Iuda die at the hands of Mihail Where does one go from there, from killing the main antagonist of the series Kent brought Dracula into the series, yet he remained secondary as far as antagonists go Moreover, his character hardly matters here since this novel captures the ending of Bram Stoker s Dracula, taking away the possibility of him being another antagonist So, the reader is left to wonder about the story It is easy to see where the story might have gone all the pieces were there, all the mystery and intrigue was carefully placed to lead the story in one direction However, that is not where the story went, and the direction it took was utterly and wondrously unexpected That is when the pace of the novel picks up because now something is going on other than just political upheaval The past comes back to the all the characters, and while I am no history buff, I can say that the skill here gives me no doubt that Kent made sure that this novel was accurate Well, accurate as it could be It is clear to see just where he might have taken some liberties, but overall They hardly matter to the overall plot of the story.
In the end, the story came full circle It explored the past, tied up the future, and will undoubtedly leave the reader with a happy A See reviews at Cyn s Workshop and follow me on Facebook Instagram Twitter Tumblr Google LinkedIn A great finish to the quintet.
Quite different to the previous books in the series perhaps a bit slower, but the author still plays with the same intrigue and subthemes I find Jasper Kent s use of his story s history from the previous books well done and adds to the continuity of his novels right throughout and he wraps it up nicely.
Thanks for a great series.


Kent wraps up the story of a century of Russian history intertwined with the plans of the Vourdalak brilliantly The final chapter of the Danilov s crusade to save first the Romanovs, and ultimately Russia, is brought to satisfying and fantastic conclusion.
The Danilov Quintet is the second long series that I ve recently concluded after starting around 10 years ago, the first book The Twelve being one of the first books I ever dared review online Over the interim I ve worked through the other 3 and even shared messages with the author himself The Last Rite is probably my of my favourites and a fitting finale for the series The prose is very crisp and vivid, and while I accused previous books of containing too much navel gazing I thought that Last Rite had a good balance of internal and external action At first I was concerned that the story seemed a little same y as the other books A somewhat gritty but reasonable MC pottering around Russia with the backdrop being a significant sequence of Russian political history But then at almost exactly halfway a twist occurs that zapped that misconception and creates a strange tension unique to this book can t say because it would be pretty spoilery and a great way of connecting the end of the series with the start Probably my only beef with the story could have gone on for another few chapters, it felt like the pacing went from relatively sedate to lightening fast and there was potential to draw out the plot a little further.
Overall the series was a blast and glad I dived into it back in the late naughties.
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 Quintet Jasper Kent created something definitely unique, compelling, and thoroughly enjoyable Twelve, 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 disappointed Here s the blurb Russia 1917 Zmyeevich, king of all vampires, is dead.
History 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 centuries.
But 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 air.
Mihail 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 free.
But 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 quite 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 Will.
This 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 Quintet and it s certainly no exception once again with The Last Rite.
Both 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 down Ever 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 vampires.
I mention this in every single review if you are looking for an intriguing blend of Russian historical fiction and paranormal fiction, Kent s Danilov Quintet 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 readers The Last Rite is a fitting end to a superior series Jasper Kent s Danilov Quintet is definitely one of the very best speculative fiction series of the new millennium Do yourself a favor and read these books For reviews www.
