5 Star Reviews:
For RED MOON RISING-titled LEGIONS OF THE DARK in this omnibus.
"This novel provides a new fascinating twist to the vampire legend. Billie Sue Mosiman is excellent at creating characters that appear genuine even those who are supernatural because she makes her supporting evidence sound believable and scientific. Although the obvious inclination is to categorize RED MOON RISING as horror or perhaps urban fantasy, the novel contains a coming of age plot that deals with choices, morality, and honor. Genre fans and some mainstream readers will toast Ms. Mosiman for her creative novel." Harriet Klausner
"Blows Ann Rice out of the water!" By A Customer

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Vampire-story twist,
M. L. D. Barnes "GitonCrais" (The Hague, The Netherlands) -
This review is from: Red Moon Rising: A Vampire Novel (Paperback)-LEGIONS OF THE DARK in this omnibus.
"I enjoyed this book and read it in one go. I liked the twist on the old vampire-story, where vampires are living among us and are just sufferers from a disease and trying to live "normal" lives. Where not all vampires are just preying on humankind. Predators, to prey, supply blood for other vampires and kill renegades. Cravens, little weaklinglings. Normals, as it says: no killers and trying to fit in with the humans. Seems to me to have overtures of the Kindred: vampire-clans, Mentor like Archon, a vampire who tries to keep peace between the clans and a leader to help other vampires cope with their existence.Nice concept and I hope it will be a first in a series rather than a stand-alone novel."
Now all three novels of the trilogy are available in this one special edition.

First her husband killed their children, then himself. Now she's on her own, and she's bent on making sure it never happens to another woman. It's too late for her…she's already damaged. Yet when she stops the evil she's felt compelled to commit, the murders continue. Someone is a copycat, pinning crimes on her, stalking her, teasing her with his devious plan. She can't make him stop. There may be no way out of the trap she's created out of loss, out of desperation.
There's another problem--she's falling in love with the detective who is in charge of tracking her down. Life is a complex series of paradoxes, a spiral of fear and murder where nothing is as it seems.
"A unique knife-edged page-turner, as dark as the alleys of the Houston demi-monde in which the moral twists of its inventive plot play out. Don't miss this one." - Paul Wilson, author of SIBS and THE SELECT.
"Taut, riveting...The tension is pulled as a noose around the reader's neck." -Robert W. Walker, author of PRIMAL INSTINCT
It's 1984 and Bill Turk is building a mansion on the Gulf bay to rival all mansions. It will have twelve bedrooms and twelve bathrooms. It will have marble and wrought iron, a 40-foot pool, a Jacuzzi, a ballroom, and a garden maze.
They're going to call it Mourning Mansion when he's done bringing his darkness to bear inside the brick walls. Parties will be thrown, drugs will be free and booze will flow. Bill's boys will have a wonderful time--all the way to the end.
Jack DeShane is a veteran cop who has seen it all, but Mourning Mansion is some new hell he needs to investigate. Boys are missing. Bill Turk is an ex-con with more money than God. And Turk has put iron bars on all the verandahs and windows. Jack needs to find out why.
Open the door...the marble floors await you...the darkness and the courage to fight it all reside here inside Mourning Mansion.
Loosely based on true crimes that occurred along the Gulf Coast, MOURNING MANSION contains graphic violence, language, and references to sexual acts.
