Publisher's Summary

Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the 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.

Now in American Vampire, the sequel to Vampire Moon, private investigator Samantha Moon receives a heartbreaking phone call from a very unlikely source: a five-year-old girl who's been missing for three months. Now on the hunt, Samantha will use her considerable resources, including her growing supernatural abilities, to locate the missing girl before it's too late. And as she gets closer and closer to the horrible truth, she receives devastating news on the home front.

Now, with her world turned upside down, Samantha Moon is forced to make the ultimate choice of life and death. And through it all, she discovers the identity of one mysterious man... a man she has grown to love.

Blood money: listen to more in the Vampire for Hire series.

    "Great series"

    This is the third book in this series I have listened too so far. I thought this was the best book so far. This story is much darker then the others , but it has so much more content and depth too it. I love Samantha humor. The narrator is awesome. I will definitely get the next book

    I had been an avid reader but with limited free time to read I discovered audio books as my solution! I listen while doing chores!

    Story
    "Vampire for Hire Series"

    Found this on Kindle Free with audio. The first book is a little slow but entertaining enough to go for the second. The second had a huge cliff hanger. I am finding each book gets better so keep reading them. They have serious parts, scary parts, hilarious parts, a bit of everything.

    Story
    "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.

    "Enjoyed the story but narration has issues"

    I enjoyed the story but there are little blurbs of narration that change from one narrator to another which is most distracting.

    Story
    "Samantha Moon, mother and detective"

    Another excellent entry in the paranormal mystery series. This book picked up right where the last one ended and the secret identity of the online persona knowe littn only as Fang is revealed to be...sorry, no spoilers! As Sam is dealing with the shock of the revelation, her son falls gravely ill. At the same time, she becomes involved in a search for a kidnapped little girl. As a mother, both her son's and the little girl's predicaments put huge strains on her emotions as Sam fights to save them both.

    "excellent story but Audio irregularities"

    The story is interesting. The audio recording has numerous irregularities where it fades, sounds like the narrator is talking from a different room, or the equipment has been adjusted as the actor is speaking.

    Story
    "Books getting shorter & shorter and more expensive"
    Any additional comments?

    Book series starts off a little longer at 6 something hours. Now they are under 5 hours and the price of the average 9-10 hour audio book. I understand it's a business, but I don't believe I will be buying any more of this series. The reader is good and the story is entertaining enough, but the 4.6 hours of listening is not worth the price. 5 good books could have taken the place for the 9 or 10 in this series.

    Story
    "Series sale"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Rain and/or Dina Pearlman?

    Yes.


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

    Wanted to listen to the next book to see what her final decision was.


    Was American Vampire worth the listening time?

    Half and half


    Any additional comments?

    Got tired of listening to how curvy she was or how great her other form was. Didn't really care for how she reacted to her son's illness. Just seemed to be more descriptions than storyline.
