Publisher's Summary

Moon Child - the fourth book in the Vampire for Hire Series.

Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.

Now in Moon Child, sequel to American Vampire, private investigator Samantha Moon is faced with an impossible decision - a decision that no mother should ever have to make. A decision that will change her life, and those she loves, forever. And through it all, Sam finds herself in a lethal game of vampire vs. vampire as a powerful - and desperate - enemy will stop at nothing to claim what he most desires.

Blood money: listen to more in the Vampire for Hire series.

    "Good Book"
    Would you listen to Moon Child again? Why?

    no - okay story but not work rereading


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kingsley


    What aspect of Dina Pearlman’s performance would you have changed?

    The constant "she said" "he said" "she replied" drove me nuts listening to it. It is not always needed in an audible book.

    Story
    "It's Not Easy Being a Vampire"

    In this story Samantha Moon has to deal with the ravages of Kawasaki's Syndrome on her son, find someone to help her activate the medallion and rescue a kidnapped boy. All in a day's work, but all too much for one conflicted freak.

    The story is quick and engaging. Dina Pearlman does a good job, but there's some unnatural pacing which doesn't progress the story.

    I look forward to the next collaboration of writer and reader in the series next installment.

    This story dragged on too long. It should have been added to the previous book.

    Story
    "The Conclusion To Book 3"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Child to be better than the print version?

    I never have time to read print so audio is always the choice.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    I love her Samantha


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    So short you can do it but I use it for commuting and exercise


    Any additional comments?

    The series is getting better as Samantha delves more into the supernatural and her powers increase. A more feelgood read with no cliffhanger and the author is improving his style. Still, I feel this was just the continuance and conclusion to book 3.

    Story
    "Great book but missing one thing, Romance"
    Would you listen to Moon Child again? Why?

    Yes, It might be missing romance but still a great series


    What did you like best about this story?

    No matter what Sam jumps right in and gets the job done.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    Kingsley


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes after Kingsley saves Sam and then tells her he is sorry and how he feels about her.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this series but l would love it if he would put more romance in it between Sam and Kingsley. The books are to sort but if it had more romance it would be longer. This series has action, humer and drama it needs more romance and it would be a perfect series and the books would be longer.

    "Good, Light Reading"

    I am a fan of this series, but it's a bit like a good bowl of popcorn; you enjoy it while you're eating it, and you're certainly sorry when it's done, but if something else exciting comes along, you can easily put it down. That said, I have purchased every book and will continue to do so. The writing is smooth, although I felt something was 'off' on the interpersonal relationships until I discovered JR Rain is a man-- then it made sense. Don't get me srong, he is a good writer and makes a great story and an easy read, but the women's inner voice seems like a man's version of a woman's inner voice if you know what a mean. This is a good combo of supernatural and mystery, reminded me of Dresden Files a little. Overall, a good, solid easy to digest series that I will stick with.
