    Bloody Great Read!

    Ok right off the bat I have to say this is a great book! Moore's gift is the ensemble cast. His strength lies in complex story lines that are more about the location and all the people interacting therein. In Blood Red we have about thirty character and how their lives change over a two week course when a Vampire takes up resident in the Town of Black Rock Bay, Rhode Island.

    Moore masterfully cuts each chapter into mutliple POVs and story threads. As we follow each of these strands we discover the web of interconnected events and watch as they collide with each other and the machinations of the vampire. With Moore its about the time, setting, and all the people are equal. Well somewhat. Some characters do shine more than others. With the way this is written we're only getting a tiny part of their lives and, in my case, it leaves me begging for more.

    Maybe I'm over complicating. I've read through 9 of Moore's books in the past few months and all the stories are basicaly snap shots of the time and place. They all also have reacurring characters Albert Miles, Jonathan Crowley, etc. All of Moore's books take place in the same world. One would have to literally read every single one of his works, short stories included, to get the full scope of every character. That's a strength. For instance in this book he has a character named Ben. Ben has an obviously interesting past, mondo hacking skills, and a 'white knight' persona. Well this reader would like to know more of his past and definitely want to know what happens to him afterward. Not to give anything away but Moore leaves us with the many open ends. Again his stories are 'snap shots' of a time period in a location which he populates with wonderful characters.

    My fav characters? Boyd and Danny are two cops. Most of their characterisation, and their sections of the book, is carried by their dialogue. I have to say it is some of the funniest and rapid paced dialogue. It's like a tennis match, bang back and forth, and I'm grinning. (Plus Boyd tells his boss off in the most inventive ways and i just love that).

    Anywho... i see I'm beginning to run on and on and i didn't even make a run down of the synopsis. Well its the form and the characters that make a Moore book and it was important to establish that. The story itself resolves around a vampire (of the Undead variety Moore makes a distinction between those created to be vamps and those that merely rise from being fed uopn, the Dead.) who comes to town. He wants to raise a bunch of the Dead and experiment upon them. Meanwhile we have a crooked cop forcing college girls to have sex, a visicous pimp running college girls, a stalker in love with a call girl, and we're getting ready for halloween. Like I said above, we have the lives of many people all happening while Jason Soulis comes to town and starts his own little experiment.

    He's taking and raising the children, who then inturn hunt down their own families. Soulis amasses a bunch of the Dead, Body and Dan are called on on all the missing people, and everything comes to head on halloween night when all the vamps are unleashed. I'm unfortunately running out of room. The full version of this review can also be found at I usually wouldn't put my site into a review but Moore deserves a review, 3500 characters doesn't cut it for me. :)

    complex, imaginative and deep vampire novel

    Black Stone Bay is a quaint, affluent town filled with more mansions than regular homes and is the home of two Ivy League universities. Two weeks before Halloween Jason Soulis moves into the small Rhode Island town and his coming will change Black Stone Bay forever. Soulis is no ordinary man but a vampire with a brilliant mind who knows how to survive and intends to use the inhabitants in his experiments. --- College student Maggie Preston pays her tuition by prostituting herself. Soulis hires her through her pimp for the night. He wants her to seduce all the clergy in town which she does quickly and easily. Ben, who lives in the same building as Maggie, loves her even when he discovers her profession. She fears making a commitment while she has been with Soulis. Maggie turns into a vampire during a frat party that turns into a blood bath but Ben cleans her up and cares for her until she wakes up. When they confront Soulis, he explains that exchanging bodily fluids turned Maggie into a thinking vampire like him. On Halloween night, he frees the missing people that were turned into vampires to see what they will do. Ben has won Maggie over so she tries to keep him alive during the feeding frenzy. --- BLOOD RED is a complex, imaginative and deep vampire novel that readers will believe will become a classic like Stephen King¿s SALEM¿S LOT. The characters are three dimensional and even the vampires have the personality they had when they were alive instead of becoming two dimensional caricatures. James A. Moore has proven with his latest novel that he is one of the grandmasters of the horror genre. --- Harriet Klausner
