Mysterious Journey to the North Sea: Part Two

by Hideyuki Kikuchi
Release date: August 2007
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, fantasy

Illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano.

Vampire lore dictates that the creatures of the night shun the sea... or do they? The picturesque coastal town of Florence was known for millennia as a pleasure resort for the Nobility. As retribution for their decadence, the cruel and beautiful vampire inhabitants were "punished," driven out more than a thousand years ago by a solitary traveler in black. Only one - Baron Meinster - refused to leave, only to be thrown to the waves by the mysterious assassin. Summoned to contemporary Florence by Su-in, sister of a murdered village girl, the enigmatic Vampire Hunter D discovers a vampire curse ravaging the town's human inhabitants. The plague apparently originating, impossibly, from the unforgiving sea - could it be Meinster's Revenge? A thrilling conclusion to the epic gothic adventure begun in Volume 7, Vampire Hunter D: Mysterious Journey to the North Sea Book One, this tale captures all the mystery and wonder that has made Vampire Hunter D a sensation around the world.
