Publisher's Summary

Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks, but then she gets a lead on a story that could salvage her extinct career. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a hot news tip, which she gets in the form of a major police cover-up...for a ring of soul-sucking vampires out to take over Seattle. So much for saving her credibility. And if that isn't bad enough, she gets talked into adopting a cat and finds she's allergic to it. A cat that turns out to be a shapeshifter who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer on the prowl for the same corrupt cops.

Her first thought: Seek professional help. But as Susan's drawn into Ravyn's dark and dangerous world, she comes to realize that there's a lot more at stake than just her defunct career. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers; it's a matter of saving their very lives and souls.

Ravyn's life was shattered over 400 years ago, when he mistakenly trusted the wrong human with the truth of his existence. He lost his family, his honor, and his life. Now, in order to save the people of Seattle, he's forced to confront that nightmare all over again and to trust another woman with the secret that could destroy him. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, life is always dangerous. But never more so than now, when a very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is...will she?

Great Book, only one nagging issue

What other book might you compare Dark Side of the Moon to and why?

Kiss of Night. This one deals with a lot of the deimon politics and underlying goings on.

What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

I am usually a huge Holter Graham fan, and I am giving him the benifit of the doubt that simply no one bothered to give him a pronunciation guide on the names. There is a character named Cael, pronouced KALE, but he pronounces it Kyle. This wouldn't be nearly as annoying if there weren't another character actually named KYLE in the book. It gets really irritating when you can't tell who is being referenced. I waited 10 years for this audiobook and its a more than a little irritating when you are dealing with a mythos as complex and involved as the Dark Hunter world.

Most disjointed reading ever

I love these books, however, Holter Graham cadence of speech is awful. It took me 2 hours to get used to his overly breathy and over enunciated reading. Seriously ruined the story.

Poor effort on the performance

I did not like the narrator, not even a little bit. The narration made it difficult to enjoy the story. The mispronunciation detracts from the story. Kyle/Kale, same person or new person? What is a Spothy?

Good story, voices are not so great

The story is good but the voices that the reader did don't go with the characters. malles Acheron who is suppose to be like 20ish when he died sound like an old man.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

I love this series and this book was of the same quality I have come to expect from Sherrilyn Kenyon, but with this narrator, it sounded like Beetlejuice was reading the book to me. I really didn't like the voices he used to try to make the men sound more masculine.

Narrator just wasn't the same as the past books.

Sorry was good, seemed a bit shorter than the last books. The narrator just didn't thrill me. The characters voices all seemed the same. Not a book I would reread using audible. I'd actually rather pick up the book and read it myself. I think I would've enjoyed the story better if I had just read the actual book.

Terrible Narrarator!!!

Where does Dark Side of the Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not my favorite story of the Dark Hunter series but I did like to get to know more about the squires.

Would you be willing to try another one of Holter Graham’s performances?

No. Not that he's a bad reader but his take on the story sounds like it should be a YA book and it's not. Hes not capable of doing the necessary accents and every man that speaks has the same raspy voice. Yuck! Fred Behrman is better for the series.

Dark Side of the Moon

This is my favorite of all the books in the series. I've read the book several times so I know for a fact the writing is fantastic and the story is amazing.
BUT the narrator, in my opinion sounded like the godfather. I could actually see puffed out cheeks while he spoke!
Raven's voice, even when mad, shoud be soft sexy with a purr that could make shivers run up the readers back, settling in the mind with expectation..
I'm not saying Holter Graham isn't a good narrator, but should read books along the line of mafia and crime dramas. His voice isn't right for a paranormal romance
