"Beneath A Blood Red Moon" (An Ashley Review)

Hey guys.

  Today I bring you "Beneath A Blood Red Moon" by Shannon Drake, which is a free book I obtained from Comic Con. Here is the cover and a summary of this novel....

"A tale that sweeps the reader from the antebellum South to contemporary New Orleans, the dark, sensuous world of love and immortality of the beauty and the beast whom some call vampire...
Maggie Montgomery, the owner of Magdalena's an elegant New Orleans boutique, gasped when she learned about the mysterious beheading of a local street person, and the trail of blood that led from the corpse to her building. Her shock turned to turmoil when she met Sean Canady, the police officer who arrived to question her...and inspired a dangerous desire.Something powerful--and beyond reason--had brought Maggie and Sean together. Something that spoke of an interwoven past, and a passionate torment that began generations before under a blood red moon. For on that night of erotic seduction, Magdalena Montgomery became a vampire, and began a century-long quest to find the one man whose love was pure enough, strong enough to save her from the darkness within..."

So this book sounded so good to me and I thought I would give it a try, because it was free. Needless to say I was sucked into this book from the beginning, but than the bottom fell out. This book got so confusing I didn't know what was going on. The author tries to take you between different people and different time eras. I was so disappointed in this book that it honestly made me sad. I don't like being confused when reading so when I became confused I literally had to skip to the end to figure out where the author was going with this story. All the characters are very developed and she goes into a lot of descriptive words, but sometimes it feels like she is suffocating you with all the details. Needless to say I would normally write more about this book, but I honestly can't which is sad.

Until next time,

Rating: 2/5 Blood red moons.....le sigh
