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 Vampire Moon, sequel to Moon Dance, private investigator Samantha Moon finds herself hunting down a powerful crime lord and protecting an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband—all while two very different men vie for her heart. And as the stakes grow higher and her cases turn personal, Samantha Moon will do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and bring two cold-blooded killers to justice—her own brand of justice.

I am enjoying the continued character development in this series. Since the books are shorter than some, there is a lot of room for more discoveries. It is nice for Samantha to find others to lean on and share her woes with as her family life alters, rearranges and adapts to her vampiric life. I appreciate the fact that there is some explanation to vampire legend as it explores what is truth and what is "myth." I also like the fact that the author gives us a slightly new take on vampires, as this author has determined. A fresh outlook is often welcome. The book sort of leaves us hanging at the end so we can look forward to the next book giving us more focus on that. Dina Pearlman "is" the voice of Samantha Moon. I hope that all future books are read by her. She does an outstanding performance and, I think, gives it just the right touch.
I am so engrossed in this series only after ready books 1 and 2 I HAVE to read the rest!
Moondance meeting Fang
The way she changes her voice
this book drew me in and I couldn't wait to get to the end to see who she was meeting
that sam was finally going to meet fang
yes when she punched her ex husbands girlfriend in the facee and she got her kids back
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
I liked it as much as the first book in the series... or, wait... perhaps a bit more. I think there was a bit less of Sam 'musing on the state of vampirism' in this story, but her character was developed without being a repeat of book one.
The thread of story dealing with Sam's ex-husband was well done - very frustrating and before the end of the book, you'll want to smack Danny too. Is the whole thing believable? Sure, for the most part. Sam wants to maintain a normal life even though she is not normal any more, and she does a good job of balancing being a vampire, having to work for a living, and trying to stay in contact with her children.
The story is short. It's not sold as a short story, but it probably could be (or, - dare I? - should be) packaged with book 1 and book 3 and sold as one, nearly complete, story. There was a bigger 'cliffhanger' in this book than in book one, but it wasn't as obnoxious a cliffhanger as some other books I've read (i.e. you probably will not feel ripped off at the end, even though you might want to read the next to find out who Fang turns out to be).
The narration is good, as good, or better than the first novel as the narrator seems to have settled into Sam's character now.
To listen to a great book while I knit is heaven on earth.
Samantha Moon...what a vamp... this one was... better than the first ...made me crave the next. Dina Pearlman does a wonderful job.
I CAN PUT MYSELF IN SAMANTHA MOON'S SHOES. I FEEL HER PAIN AS SHE OPENS THE DOOR AND THE SUN HITS HER. I REALLY DISLIKE HER HUSBAND AND WAS GLAD WHEN SHE GOT HER KIDS BACK.
WHEN SHE LET THE VAMPIRE HUNTER GO
HER MEETING WITH THE ATTORNEY AND REALIZING THAT HE WAS A WEREWOLF
YES, BUT I LISTEN TO THESE BOOKS AS I'M DRIVING TO WORK, SO I PORTION THEM OUT AND TRY NOT TO LISTEN TO THEM ANY OTHER TIME.
AUDIBLE IS A LIFE SAVER FOR ME, MY DRIVE TO WORK TAKES OVER AN HOUR AND NOW IT SEEMS LIKE 10 MINUTES!
This is definitely a keeper.
This writer creates a world of vampires that is completely believable. The main character is witty, determined, courageous, but down-to-earth. I look forward to J. R. Rain's next installment in the series.
I enjoyed this book. A lot of action including questionable morales. Great character development, storyline & plot. The mysterious Fang...I have a suspicion as to who it is.
Don't know I have never read the papaer version
Perhaps Darkness Haunts by Susan Illene. It's an emotional story, lots of inner anks and well rounded characters
I feel she demonstrates the inner feelings and character of Sam Moon so well.
I did and it is short enough
I loved the way she fought for her family and the feelings involving the son are, I am sure, ones I could have felt myself. It is possible to see her abilities grow with each book. Not too many detailed fight scenes, which I hate, and the sex is not overly graphic which is something I can find difficult to read.
