I really enjoyed this vamp book...liked the C.S.I. feel even though it was published far before that craze caught on (in 1999). I liked the Jack the Ripper explanation, etc. And I thought the love story was good because it burgeoned from mutual respect. And it was eerie for me reading it in 2005 after the hurricane had hit New Orleans...strange.

This was the second vampire book I read by Shannon Drake, and I must say it was very disappointing. There was absolutely no romance in this book, and the way Miss Drake changed from one time period to another was very distracting.

I have to admit that I picked up the book more for its cover than the plot line. To tell the truth I wasn't that thrilled once I started reading. For me, a lover of vampire romance, I found the romantic parts to be a bit dry and the action to be more slowly paced. Even though the novel has an interesting plot line which constantly switches between past and present to tie several different stories together, the language really turned me off. This is placed in modern day New Orleans, people! A modern person does not say 'and the like' or 'come hither.' Slang is almost unheard of in this book, unless it's older slang like 'kook.' Every once in a while, especially when Maggie is trying to justify vampires to Sean, the characters lapse into a long speech mode where they talk for an entire page without taking a breath - all the while explaining things previously covered in the book. Still, Ms. Drake managed to hold my interest through to the end, even though it wasn't a real page turner. The mystery aspect of the book is well done, so if you're a horror/mystery reader, this is the book for you. Don't expect too much in the romance department, though.

The trilogy in which Beneath a Blood Red Moon is included is wonderful!!! Beneath a Blood Red Moon is the first, When Darkness Falls-the first book i read first-is the second and Deep Midnight the third. Once i read When Darkness Falls I knew i hade to read all books by Shannon Drake. I'm working on that one now. In my opinion she is the greatest author of vampire lovestories.

Beneath a Blood Red Moon takes place in New Orleans. A few bizarre, Jack-the-Ripper-type murders occur with hot homicide officer Sean Canady on the job. The evidence leads him to a dangerously good-looking woman's front door, Maggie. It starts a little slow, but quickly picks up, and boy is it worth it! I fell in love with Shannon Drake as a writer and sought out more of her titles to read. Sean Canady pursues Maggie, but for some mysterious reasons she can't committ, and the reader will guess why before the author reveals all. This is a book to curl up on a chair and read for an entire afternoon!

I loved it. It started a bit slow, but when it got going it didn't stop. With flashbacks and a slowly unraveling plot and a true love that continues throughout life.

This book has so much to offer! Not only do the readers meet 3 handsome men, but also learn a little about a captivating mystery in our world's past...hey, the Ripper could of been a vampire ;-) I have never read a Drake novel before, but Shannon, please become immortal, and write books we can enjoy long into our next lives!
