They hunt and kill humans and fetuses in the dead of night, when we least expect it. They strike fear in the hearts of every Filipino, men and women, young and old, pregnant or not. And a small barangay in Manila is no exception. They are known here in the Philippines as 'aswangs'. The children laughed happily as they ended their nursery rhyme.

See a Problem?
Like I said the plot of the story was interesting I just wished Angelica and Alexander would of had more time together and not the random encounters. Loved the twists in this story and the ending wow! Regardless it was a likable read and I enjoyed it! View all 8 comments. I adore the vampire topic in an historical romance. All the balls, the society rules, the extravagant dressing, everything is perfect to a vampire story! Loved it and would be very happy reading more books structured like this one. I liked the mystery and the surprise end!
I wasn't expecting that person I loved all t Contrasting feelings I loved all the characters but the hero, after I'll explain better. All the secondary and the heroine was incredible! That's happen more or less at the half of the book and after that I couldn't read about him having "good" internal comments no, was more like "SLUT", "bastard", and more I'm trying to understand why there was that scene! Quick description without spoilers: I should think "WOW this hero is so virile, he is having sex" or "WOW everyone will see it, and will know how macho he is!
Under the Blood Red Moon by Mina Hepsen (2008, Paperback)
And if all the quotations were not enough what she did? A quotation contest in a dinner Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. View all 12 comments. Oct 22, Julie jjmachshev rated it really liked it Shelves: It's a well-written, medium heat, historical paranormal romance with vampires. Hepsen's take on vampires is a bit different and very interesting. However, there are a few blank spots where some things just seems to appear from nowhere which was a bit bothersome.
Under the Blood Red Moon
Angelica has a couple of problems. The first is that she doesn't particularly want to marry, she'd much rather spend her time reading and enjo Really 3. The first is that she doesn't particularly want to marry, she'd much rather spend her time reading and enjoying her home in the country. But her aunt and brother keep pushing her to marry. Then there's the fact that she can hear what people think so crowds are a problem for her and especially all the balls and routs required by live among the ton.
And lastly, she just received a note from their man of business and it looks like she may have no choice BUT to marry as their finances have taken a downturn. Then she meets the most handsome man she's ever seen Alexander is only in town to kill the vampire that's running amok, killing humans and draining them of their blood.
He really doesn't have the time or patience to deal with Angelica even if she is stunning.
The problem is that he just can't get her out of his mind and it's interfering with his concentration! Then, Angelica finds out about what he is and vampire law states she must die Fairly quick read at pages in trade paperback size. I'll keep an eye out for Hepsen's next book as it will be interesting to see if she'll continue in this same vein HAHAHA and maybe tie up a few loose ends left toward the end of "Under the Blood Red Moon". Oct 26, Jean Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I thought this book would be cheesy. Actually I thought it would be laughably cheesetastic, sort of like a pathetic combination of Anne Rice and Stephenie Meyer.
Oh, how wrong I was! It sat on shelf for almost two years before it being read in honor of Halloween. I was delightfully surprised at how simple, yet well written this novel was. It's very easy to read, while still be a histor I thought this book would be cheesy.
It's very easy to read, while still be a historical, Victorian Era Styled, novel. The storyline is simple, rebellious to her culture Angelica, a mind reader, would prefer to stay at home and read, play piano, and ride her horse. Looking for a husband bores her until circumstances rise that it becomes necessary to do so.
She discovers during one of those hated balls she hears the thoughts of someone else, who apparently is just like her. This turns out to be Alexander, who has a bigger secret than being a mind reader, he's a vampire. And thus the story begins to roll forward at a very fast, fun pace. I enjoyed Hepsen's charaterizations, especially those of the main stars of Angelica and Alexander.
I also loved the famous quotes and the famous stories that are dropped elegantly throughout the novel. Ms Hepsen is very well read like her heroine. I also loved her take on the vampire mythology. I've read a great deal of vampire novels and I like it when a writer changes up the classic "Dracula-like" mythology, and this novel has probably the most intelligent takes on those myths. And that in an era of thousands of writers doing their takes on vampires is a huge positive for this novel.
Sep 16, Debbie rated it really liked it Shelves: Princess Angelica Belanov grew up knowing she was different, she was able to her other peoples thoughts, so she had decided to seclude herself from others to protect herself as well others. Finding that another seemed to have that same gift, gave her hope as a way to control it better.
Prince Kourakin was so used to reading other peoples minds that he thought nothing of it, until he realized that the enchanting beauty that had just been in his mind was not of the same race as himself, a vampire. The added combination of paranormal vampires and historical romance set in was well done.
Vampires and all the legends surrounding them could be summed up as legends, the book, the rituals, the ceremonies, the fight scene all down played but still very well detailed so that the romance, the emotion of the characters is what the plot of the story revolved around. That emotional link to the characters kept me reading this book it should have taken much longer to read , I did not want it to end. I really enjoyed this genre and this writer.
I would love to find out if Mina Hepsen has written any of this as a series, to visit or re-visit some of these characters would be fun. Jul 11, Monique rated it really liked it Shelves: I haven't read a good book about vampires in a long time. I started to think that it would be impossible to find one again. Thank goodness for this gem. Yes, I guess some parts come off as sickeningly sweet, but you know what sometimes a girl just wants to read it. The romance is predictable and the plot you see coming from a mile away.
However it doesn't take away the fact that the book is well written and has characters that you want to read more about. This book makes me dream about wearing ri I haven't read a good book about vampires in a long time. This book makes me dream about wearing ridiculous dresses, drinking tea and going home to my very own Dracula. Dec 29, Steph rated it really liked it Shelves: I haven't read many historical romances, but picked this one because 1 the cover yes, I know Of course I would find that intriguing.
My gut wasn't wrong. I really enjoyed this I haven't read many historical romances, but picked this one because 1 the cover yes, I know I really enjoyed this book and was sad when it was over. Hepsen writes more and makes this a series. I, for one, would definitely read them. All her life she's been trying to deal with her "curse", she can hear the thoughts of others. Her aunt is relentless and insisting she attend balls and parties to find a suitable husband.
What keeps her from choosing a husband, when there are many, many men that want her, is that she hears everything they are thinking when they meet her.
Under the blood red moon
She's a talented, very intellectual girl who loves to read and often quotes her favorite authors when joking with her brother. For these crimes you will be hunted down, and the life you have abused will be taken from you. Most people see it as something elusive that radiates from a member of the opposite sex, something they grab with both hands as tightly as they can We feel love toward someone who shows us the light, who pushes us to become what we have always wanted to become but may have never realized. We love the person who makes us love ourselves.

Under the Blood-Red Sun () - IMDb
It should instead be filed under paranormal romances. It was a bit randy in parts, what with the vampire orgies and such. The romance part was pretty well developed, however the rest of the story was somewhat lacking. It's almost as if the author put the romantic story line together and then decided she better throw in something else to thicken it up a bit - give it some thrills and intrigue. Otherw I have a feeling this book was erroneously filed in the literature section of my local bookstore. Otherwise it would have just been written porn.
The lead character is supposedly a strong willed beautiful thing who finds herself in the need of finding a husband fast. It is just horrible that she leads on such a nice young man only to leave him heart broken. There are no consequences for her in this action.
