Description
From Dark Horse:
12,090 A.D. It is a dark time for the world. Humanity is just crawling out from under three hundred years of domination by the race of vampires known as the Nobility. The war against the vampires has taken its toll; cities lie in ruin, the countryside is fragmented into small villages and fiefdoms that still struggle against nightly raids by the fallen vampires-and the remnants of their genetically manufactured demons and werewolves.
Every village wants a Hunter-one of the warriors who have pledged their laser guns and their swords to the eradication of the Nobility. But some Hunters are better than others, and some bring their own kind of danger with them...

this is really bad
it feels like really bad fanfic based on some kind of cool vampire movie

this is also the case with other stories i have read of hideyuki kikuchi
it feels like the "real" story that it is based on could be interesting

but that the "fanfic" author just is not capable to bring it to life

and since there are parts that are interesting you keep on hoping that the next novel will be better
but...
as i see it they just keep getting worse

some reasons why i think hideyuki is an awful author

retconing characters is something that happens alot
sometimes even 2-3 times in the same chapter
that might be part of the "charm" ...but i can not stand it

woman are overall treated like garbage
they are either hysterical sexobjects, horny teenagers, weak sexobjects or lovesick sexobjects
they serve basically the role of asahina in the haruhi world
a doll that lets the author over and over explain how cute,sexy or faltout -fuckable- they look ...and its even worse here
and they seems to want to be treated like this too witch makes it worse

the logic most characters seems to live by is so weird and sometimes sick
that no1 could function in any of these "worlds"

basically bad fanfic based on dracula
stay away

Amano is the only reason to check out these books...better and alot cheaper to buy artbooks or just use google...
