"Thompson does not disappoint in Book 2 of this gripping series"
Dawn Thompson's Blood Moon really impressed me. Not only
is the writing lyrical, beautiful, it was chilling, dark,
sinister, a near perfect vampire story rooted in vampire
mythos origins, a cunning hybrid of a Regency Romance and
a sexy, vampire tale that leaves you breathless and
wanting more. In typical Thompson style, she takes that
starting point and then sends you on a wild ride at a
relentless pace, taking what is old and making it new
again, thus setting up the premise for The Brotherhood,
now out, and the coming The Ravening (Spring 2008,
Dorchester). Possibly (hopefully!) more books in the
series after that.
Joss Hyde-White, son of the hero and heroine in Blood
Moon, leaves London in search of answers to matters
troubling him, like who he is--WHAT he is. In Cornwall,
his travels comes to a stall as a snowstorm hits the
area. He comes upon a carriage and rescues the beautiful
woman who lies unconscious inside. From that point,
everything is not to be trusted, but that won't deter Joss
from finding out the truth about his parents, the Blood
Moon rite and a mysterious group called The Brotherhood,
that could be his salvation. His only ally is the sexy
Gypsy, Milosh. (Book Three is Milosh's book, and it hints
that it will be the best yet). With each book in the
series, Thompson gives you another turn of the screw,
earning praise from romance readers and non-romance
I simply cannot wait for Milosh's story!

Joss Hyde-White left London for answers about who and what he was. What he found, with night falling, Cornwall consumed by a snowstorm quickly obscuring the road, was a carriage--a brougham by the look of it--its snow-covered horses standing like two ghosts, and a scene of horror interrupted within. A chestnut-haired beauty lay prone, requiring his assistance. But safety was not easily provided.
On this night that brought to mind vampires and the foulest creatures of myth, through the whirling snow and growing darkness, it was difficult to tell man or woman from beast. From this moment forward, no one and nothing could be trusted--not even his own instincts, be they to kiss or kill. Joss was on the road to the truth, and that would lead to the secret of his parents, to the Blood Moon Rite of ancient Persia, to the enigmatic Milosh, the Gypsy, and...THE BROTHERHOOD.
