The third novel in Jasper Kent's enthralling, chilling and acclaimed historical vampire sequence -- The Danilov Quintet.

Russia 1855. After forty years of peace in Europe, war rages. In the Crimea, the city of Sevastopol is besieged. In the north, Saint Petersburg is blockaded. But in Moscow there is one who needs only to sit and wait -- wait for the death of an aging tsar, and for the curse upon his blood to be passed to a new generation.

As their country grows weaker, a brother and sister -- each unaware of the other's existence -- must come to terms with the legacy left them by their father. In Moscow, Tamara Valentinovna Lavrova uncovers a brutal murder and discovers that it is not the first in a sequence of similar crimes, merely the latest, carried out by a killer who has stalked the city since 1812.

And in Sevastopol, Dmitry Alekseevich Danilov faces not only the guns of the combined armies of Britain and France, but must also make a stand against creatures that his father had thought buried beneath the earth, thirty years before.

Review:

Praise for Twelve

"Twelve is definitely high-quality reading."
Booklist

"A gang of bloodthirsty vampires operating as partisans against the invading French army, both in its investment of Moscow and its long, and long-suffering, retreat—I don’t know about you, but that setup makes my mouth water . . . the moral dimension of the novel flowers—and it’s that dimension which really distinguishes this book from typical vampire fare. . . . Twelve is a strong and original debut by a talented young writer who brings fresh psychological and moral sophistication to his subject."
Realms of Fantasy

Praise for Thirteen Years Later

"Hugely ambitious."
Publishers Weekly

". . . an offbeat and gripping vampire tale. . . . This richly detailed book will appeal to Russophiles as well as fans of vampire fiction."
Library Journal

"Kent has magically blended history, folklore, and storytelling to produce a superb account of the Dekabrist revolt. Thirteen Years Later should please fans of all three. The third in the series (The Third Section) is set during the Crimean War, and expected to exercise the same fascination."
