Baron Byron Balazs nears the end of his arduous journey; his bodyguard - the enigmatic and deadly Vampire Hunter D - has delivered him to his faraway home in Krauhausen. Having survived the near-epic journey, and many attempts on his life - ordered by his father, the dread Vampire Noble Lord Vlad - the baron thinks he is ready for his final battle, whatever the cost. But Lord Vlad is not so easily vanquished, as he unleashes yet another host of nefarious killers on his son, not least of whom is a mad doctor enlisted to perform sinister experiments on the young baron's mother years before With their battle raging across the landscape of Krauhausen, Balazs turns to D for aid once again. As the longest Vampire Hunter D mega-novel to date races to a heart-stopping conclusion, can D, and their mysterious ally, the noblewoman Miska, stop Vlad's reign of terror once and for all?
