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 until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires. Yeah, just another day in her life.

Then she gets talked into adopting a cat she's allergic to. Her first thought is to neuter the cat. But when he turns out to be a gorgeous shapeshifting man who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer she thinks: not so fast. Next thought: seek professional help.

Susan doesn't know what to believe, but as she's drawn into a paranormal world, she comes to realize that the story that could bring her credibility is too unbelievable to expose. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers, it's a matter of saving lives and souls, and her only ally is a man she's allergic to.

In the world of the Dark-Hunters, it's always dangerous. But never more so than when one very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is...will she? Dark Side of the Moon is full of Sherrilyn Kenyon's trademark sexy humor and breathtaking imagination.

Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

Love DH series, not this version of this book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

So I love the DH books and I love Sherrilyn Keyon work, but this book (or this version) was just painful to get through. Where was Fred Birman? Gosh, listening to the narrator was like as painful as having someone stick needles in my eardrums just for fun.
Skip the listening of this one, get the book and read it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was a good ending, just painful to get through it. I'm going to return this one.

Would you be willing to try another one of Maggi-Meg Reed’s performances?

No, Maggi-Meg Reed's performance in this book was not so fun for me. Maybe she would be better in another book.

Was Dark Side of the Moon worth the listening time?

Nope, not this version. I'm going to go and read the book just so I can feel in all the blanks left by this listening.

Any additional comments?

Don't do abridge version of your books, Sherrilyn Kenyon, it is a blasphemy to your books and an affront to your readers.

Dark Hunters Rule!

Kenyon's Dark Hunter world grows bigger and hotter with each installment. You can't go wrong with any of her books, and on audio they are even more sexy with the character's accents done with professional narration. *Important to read this series in order*

Great story, can't wait to read more.

It was a fun and exciting step into an unseen underworld of beasts and ancient organizations. I thoroughly enjoyed the first of many to come.

Short Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

So far I've like most every DH Audible but I was disappointed in this one because I felt cheated since it was just slightly over 4 hrs. I downloaded it before I noticed it was abridged, meaning most of the story line was lost since it was shortened. Don't get me wrong, I did like the story line/plot but it felt way too short for a DH audible and left me wanting more. I suggest you read the book to get the full impact of the novel then wait for someone to come to their senses and rerecord unabridged. From now on I'll look carefully before downloading and not waste my time on abridged.

What did you like best about this story?

Learned more about the Were-Hunters/Dark Hunters

Which character – as performed by Maggi-Meg Reed – was your favorite?

loved Susan Michaels and her attitude. She was feisty

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No laughing or crying, just disappointed it was so short

Any additional comments?

Loved Susan but as the main character there should have been more to her but it was lost since this is an abridged novel.

Never read the book so...

Would you listen to Dark Side of the Moon again? Why?

Probably.

What did you like best about this story?

Was about another warehunter

Have you listened to any of Maggi-Meg Reed’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't remember.

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

Not really, but because it was so short it only toke me the a little while because I lissien to them at work.

Any additional comments?

Ok here it is, I love the series...although sometimes I feel like the only guy that like's the dark hunter books although I just started lissing to them like a month or so ago because of the Chronicles of Nick. But I did like the store and did feel rused because of the "ABRIDGED" part and really wished it was unabridged so I can get the full story....it was kind of a let down for audible.com :/....maybe I will just order the CD off amazon. But other then the shortness, I loved it.

Not a favorite

I have to say that when I heard the change in narrators, I was caught off guard but kept listening because I am in love with the series. However, I just couldn't get into this book. I found myself not listening to the story and that never happens when I listen to this series. Not sure if it was the story line or the narrator.
