Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, a typical soccer mom with a 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.

There's something in the water. Something evil.... Now in Moon Shadow (Vampire for Hire, Book 11), private investigator Samantha Moon is hired to track down a purported lake monster that could wreak havoc on a tourism business.

When Sam delves into the creature sightings that have spooked Lake Elsinore residents, she crosses paths with the case of two missing boys. The police are stumped, and Sam and her werewolf lawyer boyfriend, Kingsley, team up to investigate both cases. And what lies beneath the surface of the lake is just the beginning for the paranormal abomination that has taken over Lake Elsinore. This is no legendary monster. Its diabolical evil spans centuries and even worlds - and it sets its sights on Sam's loved ones....

As Sam and Kingsley pursue the truth, time is running out for the missing boys - and for someone she loves. Will Samantha Moon have to choose between them?

Okay book

I was getting a bit bored with the storyline. It seemed to trail off at times. Also was a bit confusing when they talked about it New Orleans- reference to the 1/2 book.

Not a fan of Frankenstine..

I liked all of the books but had some trouble staying focused through many parts of this book. There was alot of over explaining on the boring parts, I still find the discription of the massive hairy Kingsley to be unatractive. please STOP discribing him. Sam has weird taste in men. lol

Over the top?

I have enjoyed this series why does it have to get more and more bizzare? Frankenstein monsters and teleporting? Why? It was good without that crazy out there stuff. I'm disappointed. May not continue with the series.

Great finale!

Enjoyed the great read. I really liked J. R. Rain's history of Sam Moon. Her future isn't bad either. D.Page

Doesn't add up

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Too much of nothing, story-wise. Too much foul language, unnecessary to the story. This author has so much potential but not reaching it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything but this author

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

Ms Pearl.an was fine, the co re t she had to work with was not :(

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Some.

great

j. r rain has made the Samantha Moon series one of my favorites. Samantha was just trying to do her best to take care of her family that she loved very much, when on a night she was attacked and died /or at the time they thought almost. then figured out that she was a vamp. She lost her husband but she kept on going trying to do the best for her kids and learning how to live with what she was how to deal. find out newer greater things about herself and the her kids . keep up the great work.

Very entertaining

I very much enjoyed this story which was one of the best so far, however, I have knocked off a star for the constant repetition of 'Sssssssssamantha Moon' and 'so to speak' which, after listening to several of this series in a row, can actually drive a person mad (so to speak!) . And any time a person is in conversation with anybody in these books, they usually repeat the persons name, ie. 'yes, Sam' 'No, Sam'. The extra s's are for the vampire's pronunciation of her name, which, of course, is very sibilant, as they are obviously snakes (no they're not but they speak as though they might be) .

I do love this series though and this is a particularly entertaining installment, you'll have to listen to it to find out why, but I have read, or listened to all 17 books, plus the 2 origin stories so they are pretty addictive, but they can also be irritating as mentioned above.
