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?
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.

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.
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.
When I first started reading her series (The League) I thought there is no way she can write all these books and keep it interesting. God bless she is awesome! Each story is so captivating I can’t stop listening or put the books down. It’s to the point that my budget can’t keep up with my speed reading.
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.
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.
The Dark Hunter series is the perfect mix of romance, action and humor. Holds your interest while making you swoon. Narration is fantastic. I have listened to this series more than once, which is a rarity for me.
will there be a tv series I heard that a movie will be out soon
LOVE the Dark-Hunter series and all the characters. This one was a bit slow starting out, but eventually captured my attention. My biggest problem was that the narrator Graham pronounces the names differently than I would or that I'm used to hearing from Fred Berman which put a damper on things. Also, every male voice was the same. I expect that from McDuffy or whatever her name is, but you're a man, it should've been much easier to add more than just a low rasp to EVERY male voice... made it highly confusing overall to tell, at certain points, who was talking. But, alas, it was still a good book and he showed some emotion that was appropriate for the situations. I wish they would belt out though during anger parts, not keep it soft like we're in a library, I have headphones no one will get mad I promise haha.
