Granny Viper is a " people finder, " a searcher for lost souls along the roads of a forbidding wasteland. Her latest mission: the safe return of a young woman named Tae, kidnapped eight years ago by vampire Nobility and held in Castle Gradinia on the Frontier's far border. But rescuing Tae is only half the battle -- Viper knows she and the girl can't cross the formidable expanse to the town of Barnabas alone. After making the fatal mistake of hiring the mercenary Bullow Brothers to help her, Granny turns to the legendary Vampire Hunter D for salvation. As they traverse the bleak desert between the Inner and Outer Frontier, the two women and D find themselves in a race for their lives. And they soon discover how cruel the desert is -- and how very ruthless the Bullow Brothers are . . .

* Features six illustrations by the renowned Yoshitaka Amano, illustrator of Neil Gaiman's Sandman: The Dream Hunters.

Annotation:
Translated from the Japanese, VAMPIRE HUNTER D is a heady goulash of science fiction, Western, and melodramatic gothic horror. The first in a series, the book was adapted into an immensely popular anime in 1985. In the year 12,090 AD, humans scratch a hard living out of the Frontier by day and huddle inside at night, hiding from the vampires and the monstrous creatures the vampires have loosed upon the world. A powerful vampire lord, Count Magnus Lee, has selected the human girl Doris Lang as his bride, an honor that Doris would prefer to reject. To protect herself from the predatory count, she hires the itinerant, mysterious Vampire Hunter D. An apparent youth of incredible beauty, D is in fact a dhampir, a human/vampire hybrid devoted to protecting the humans who fear and despise him, while desperately resisting the call of his blood-starved vampire half. The book includes eight gorgeous black-and-white ink illustrations by Yoshitaka Amano, who served as the designer for the animated films VAMPIRE HUNTER D and VAMPIRE HUNTER D: BLOODLUST.
