Which type of Vampire would you be?
If you're looking for a great Vampire story with a twist, then Red Moon Rising is just the book for you. Instead of coming up with another variation of what the Vampires will be, Billie Sue Mosiman takes the predominant qualities and separates them into three distinct type of Vampires; the Predators, the Cravens, and the Naturals. Making this type of distinction no longer limits which qualities, powers, weakness', personalities, etc. the particular Vampires have to 'fit' in. Della Cambian, a high school senior two weeks away from graduation, has finally caught the 'disease', the one which transforms one into a Vampire. Her mother, father, younger brother, and most of her blood relatives have already gone through the transformation. To help with the transition and to make sure Della make the right choice of which of the three types of Vampire she will be, the family's summons Mentor, the areas helper and guide. Mentor has a variety of roles, which include keeping the peace in the Vampire community, making sure their secret is safe from mortals, and getting involved in disputes. One of the main crisis he has to deal with is when a doctor finds one of the local blood banks is shipping out untested blood, a situation that may have been going on for over a century. Unknown to her, the Blood Bank is run by a Predator Vampire who supplies the blood to the rest of the Vampires, for a fee. It is up to Mentor and Ross, the head of the Blood Bank, to ensure their secret isn't found out. This book is very fast paced and has an engrossing storyline. It's well written, entertaining, and hard to put down once you get started.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
