    "Moon Revealed"

    In this second installment in the Samantha Moon Vampire for Hire series we see more of the PI and woman to add to the dimensions we've experienced of the mother and vampire.

    At this point her code of honor is more visible and we are privy to her internal motivations which aren't always benign. She is growing into a full character and her conscience is evident.

    This story has her fighting crime concurrent to solving a mystery. It's now evident that she knows more about her kind and other immortals. She shares candidly without the fear of judgement as she considers the outcomes worthy of the questionable actions that precede them.

    Dina Pearlman gives a good vocal performance and achieves identifiable diversity with new characters while cementing those from the first Moon tale.

    The story, acting and total package are worthy of four stars and a future purchase of the next installment.

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    "Decent story, ok writing and narration"

    The overall story was good and kept me interested and wanting to know what was going to happen. The characters are developed and make me care what happens in their lives. The writing is somewhat uneven, sometimes well done and other times rather bland and clichéd. The narration seems to match the writing often times trying to sound noir but not really pulling it off. Other times it really brings out the emotion of the story or the feelings of the character. I'd be interested in hearing something else by Dina Pearlman to see what she's able to do with stronger material. In the end I'm still looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    "Review of Vampire Moon"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Rain and/or Dina Pearlman?

    This series is good. I read the first one and listened to the second one. I am looking forward to the third one. It is a dark series. Makes you think.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Samantha-The main character. What she struggles with.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dina Pearlman?

    I enjoyed her as a narrator. Very clear and concise


    Do you think Vampire Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There is a new book in her series. I hope there is more after the third.

    Story
    "A very average series..."

    I listened to the entire series in hopes that the author would develop the characters, world and story better, since I found the concept of a Vampire in a domestic setting intriguing. Although the series continues to keep some interesting concepts, the story doesn't get better or worst.

    The author continues to make the same mistakes throughout the entire series. The mystery is very predictable. Samantha doesn't act as a mother in many situations or like a former federal agent, or even like a regular woman, and keeps making poor decisions that could easily expose her "secret" vampirism to strangers. Also all other characters in the series are kept one dimensional.

    For some reason the author also seems to be going with the "extraordinary and most powerful" route for Samantha's character. She is now developing all kinds of psychic abilities that allow her to "know" everything by touching objects, talking to ghosts, listening to her "inner alarm" or by communicating with old spirit, etc. These abilities apparently are not developed by all vampires. Although it is somewhat interesting to have a psychic vampire, at the same time its also very anticlimactic and convenient to have her find out everything so easily.

    I suspect that many of the issues I find with this series are related to the shortness of each book. I have no idea why the author creates such short stories but by doing so he really hampers the character development and the flow of the story.

    Nonetheless the series is somewhat interesting and the author has a different concept going (psychic vampire investigator and mother of two kids). This series may not win any awards but its still mildly entertaining.

    "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.

    "Fun take"

    "Vampire for Hire" is a fun take on the vampire craze. I've enjoyed both novels in the series so far and will continue on with the series. Our hero is a working single mom who happens to be an ass-kicking vampire. Very fun. I actually enjoyed this book more than the 2nd in the series. My only complaint is the narrator. She is strangely monotone. I would listen to the sample just to make sure that you could enjoy her telling. I recommend it if you are looking for something light and entertaining.

    "Pretty Good"

    I received the first J R Rain book for free. I chose to listen to this one and I'm glad I did. My biggest complaint about the first book is that Sam had no backbone. In this installment, she is becoming a stronger woman and a stronger vampire. I won't give any spoilers, but I say that I don't expect her to follow the same moral code as a human. She is a vampire and in this book she begins to act like one. However, I can still tell that this was written by a man. Women are a lot more subtle. It's a good book, and, I plan to read the next book in this series as well.
