Summary

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 man and a woman - unaware of the hidden ties that bind them - must come to terms with their shared legacy.

The Third Section Summary

The Third Section: (The Danilov Quintet 3) by Jasper Kent

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 man and a woman - unaware of the hidden ties that bind them - must come to terms with their shared legacy. In Moscow, Tamara Valentinovna Komarova uncovers a brutal murder and discovers that it 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..

The Third Section Reviews

A pure and unqualified delight. Kent wears his research lightly, but you never doubt that he knows what he's writing about... packed with incident and colour... there are some magnificent and inventive horror set pieces... and Kent gives us one of the most compelling portraits of what it would be like to be a vampire yet committed to the page * BLACK STATIC *
More twists and turns than a switchback mountain road, more cliff hangers than your favourite season of 24... The Third Section is the best book yet in this series * LITTLEREDREVIEWER *
The author's flair and his eye for historical details create an evocative narrative that never fails to dazzle * FANTASYHOTLIST *
