Great conclusion to the vampire empire trilogy. All has been leading up to this final epic battle of Vampire vs Humans. In the Griffith's steampunkish universe, vampires are evil creatures who treat the humans as cattle and refer to them as food herds. Adele is now the leader of her people and must continue to battle the clans as they are becoming evermore dangerous as they become more aggressive as Prince Ceasar organizes clans and plans to become the king of all vampires. Very political tale with both groups setting up allies, guarding against betrayal and traitors. Packed full of action and the climatic ending didn't disappoint. Does love really conquer and survive it all?
