I read this book a while back and am now re-reading it-this will be my 4th time through this series of books.
I am not normally one for Vampire novels but the beauty and sumptuousness of Freda Warrington's writing drew me in, I could not put this book down!! This is in my top ten best ever books
Well recommended.
finishing the last book in this series was like leaving an old friend.

WARRINGTON OUT-RICES ANNE RICE! Dec 22 1999
By carl nicastro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
THE DARK BLOOD OF POPPIES, Freda Warrington's third novel in her Vampyre trilogy, is an excellent blend of horror, humor, 1920's period history and fantasy. Reminiscent of Anne Rice's VAMPIRE CHRONICLES, Warrington does the concept better by introducing new elements, such as The Crystal Ring, a method of astral travel used by her Vampyres. She beings in the ancient Vampyre Mother Lilith and introduces the concept of an impending Armageddon in the Vampyre world, a la White Wolf's roleplaying game, VAMPIRE: THE MAS- QUERADE. But Warrington's work rises far, far above Rice and White Wolf. Now that I've read the third novel, I have to go back and locate the first two! Highly, highly recommended! Unfortuna- tely, available only in Great Britain(I obtained my copy by e-mailing the author, who sent me a complimentary, inscribed copy!)at the moment.Let's hope an American publioshed snaps up the trilogy "real soon now!" Sweet nightmares...and remember STAY OUT OF THE DAYLIGHT!

Taste of Blood Wine Aug. 7 2000
By Wendy Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I must say I would never have thought of reading a vampire book, this was one I picked up whilst on holiday, didn't fancy it, but tthe alternative was worse. My Goodness, what a book, could not put it down, absolutly great. I went out and purchased the second book the Dance in Blood Velvet, and finally bought the third from Amazon out of prints, Blood Poppies, all amazing reads, as they say "Dont knock it till you've tried it", you will NOT be dissapointed, come on publishers do a re-print. Personally I want to purchase all three again, as mine have done the rounds and friends alike wish to purchase them. I could definelty re-read these books, What an imagination, and guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Well done Freda Warrington.

A thought provoking book about the nature of love. Oct. 11 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Dark Blood of Poppies is the third of Britains answer to Anne Rice's Vampire Sequence. The first two, A taste of Blood Wine and A Dance in Blood Velvet, introduced us to the characters of Charlotte and Karl. Brillant and thought provoking they make us question the nature of love and immortality while engageing and entertaining the reader. I can also recommend Warringtons novel The Dark Cathedral and its follow up Pagan Moon. It's not very often that you use the word life altering about books but these two totally changed my out look on life and view on Paganism.
