    urban fantasy at its best

    Limpet and Associates have traveled to England to wipe out another vampire underground. Many centuries ago, Costin exchanged blood with a man who made a deal with the devil; like a bloody Ponzi scheme, he turned his closest advisors into master vampires who go out and create armies. So when he wakes up from a centuries-long sleep, he has soldiers around the world waiting to do his bidding. Cortin hated what he has become and merged his consciousness with the body o f Jonah Limpet to destroy these underground pockets; praying his soul will be returned to him.<BR/><BR/>Muscular Hollywood stuntwoman Dawn Madison is believed to be the ¿key¿ to Costin regaining paradise lost by destroying the underground vampire units as he did in Los Angeles (see the first Vampire Babylon trilogy). The Romanian psychic Natalia who hears the dead joins the Limpet group and, Dawn finally accepts her. The group learns about young teens attending the Queenshill School in St. Alban¿s. They were turned by a master who is training them to take their places in the underground¿s main hive. The new vamps love night stalking searching for bodies to drink from and mutilate. They are confident that no one can defeat them, but Dawn and her crew are going to test that premise.<BR/>---<BR/>This is the start of the second Vampire Babylon trilogy saga and it is radically different from its excellent predecessor though as superb. The key is the California and England undergrounds are dramatically dissimilar from one another as are the creatures of the night. Dawn remains somewhat uncomfortable in her role, but has adapted mentally; she was already strong before her new task so physically her adjustment was easier. A DROP OF RED is urban fantasy at its best; filled with interesting characters and a fast-paced story line in which death has several outcomes but is always a bite away.<BR/>---<BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Couldn't get through it....

    I read the first 3 books in a row, then waited before reading the 4th. Dawn's one-track mind is extremely grating, her character has no substance or depth, and the other team members are left undeveloped and stagnant. Dawn and Costin are annoying, and her relationship angst is tiresome. The schoolgirl vampire gang was almost interesting, I just kept feeling like I was missing something. And they turn into cat-wolves? I don't know... I could not get into this book, and it became so tedious for me to pick it up, that I just stopped reading it about half way through. I am officially done with this series.

    Fascinating Teen Vampires Offset By A 'Drama Queen' Heroine

    A decent read if you like stories about truly monstrous vampires and those who hunt them. Regrettably, Dawn's romantic angst about Costin is a bit too thick; Costin's character lacks definition; and, their relationship is just too damn torrid/tortured. But, the secondary characters, particularly Kiko, are nicely nuanced. The plot, (which revolves around Dawn and her fellow hunters destroying the London vampire underground), is too slow with respect to the hunters' progress but fascinating as regards the story of the school girl vamps. I enjoyed the tale, but I was somewhat put-off by the all the melodrama.

    Good Read, Something Different

    If you love vampires, celebrity, and the challenges of being a vampire hunter you will love this book. Chris Marie Green has cleverly built characters that have real life issues in a job that you can't exactly write home to mama about. The characters are excellent however the plots are pretty predictable. If you are looking for a good read this is definately one.

    Chris Marie Green does it again.

    Continuing the adventures of stunt double, turned vampire hunter, Dawn Madison, Chris Marie Green takes the new adventure from sunny Los Angeles to a more weather weary London, England and spins a new tale. I found the change in scenery to be wonderfully done. I enjoyed the original trilogy and I actually like this first book better than those.

    Chris Marie Green gets it right again!

    Dawn is now in London and the adventure continues. If you have not read the first three, I recommend that you pick them up first. This book is one of three set in London and follows the same plot line as the first three. This book is good for one of those days where you just want to cuddle up and read. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.
