Realm of Shadows
This book is fourth in the series, but sadly does not measure up to the first three. Still enjoyable, it gives a well written plot and a different look into the world of vampirism.

exciting vampire romance
American Tara Mason comes to Paris to visit her ailing grandpapa, but becomes worried about him when he spins a tale that she believes is born of senility. He insists he is a member of the Alliance, a group dedicated to fighting evil including vampires. Grandpapa is upset because he believes that an archeological dig in a churchyard has liberated a deadly vampiress. <P>On her grandpapa¿s insistence, Tara tries to sneak into the crypts of the church, but runs into Brent Malone. When they hear screams, Brent knows his worse nightmare has occurred as the diggers have freed Louisa on an unsuspecting world. Brent cannot persuade Tara of the existence of vampires, but she wonders why he and grandpapa act like old acquaintances. As Tara and Brent fall in love and he vows to keep her safe, evil approaches, ready to devour anyone in its¿ path including a skeptical American visitor. <P>The latest tale in Shannon Drake¿s vampire series, REALM OF SHADOWS, is an exciting novel that returns key characters from previous books in significant roles in this story. A vast ensemble tells the tale so that readers will need a scorecard to keep track of whose whom. Still the plot hooks fans wondering if Tara will accept the truth about the evil that stalks her and her family or remain a skeptic in spite of her love for true believers like grandpapa and Brent. Though the ending required a long dissertation to tie loose ends together, paranormal romance readers will relish the appearance of favorites in the latest battle between good and evil as a background to love. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
