Publisher's Summary

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 happened: an attack that changed her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.

Now, in Vampire Dawn, Samantha Moon tackles her most frightening case yet. Someone is leaving victims drained of blood, and all signs point to the killer not being a vampire. Meanwhile, Sam can't help but notice the changes coming over her son... fantastical changes that will leave her searching desperately for answers. As Sam tracks down a ruthless killer, and as her own humanity slips further and further away, an ancient relic holds a secret that will rock her world - and open up a whole new one.

Samantha Moon ~ Vampire PI Extraordinaire!

This series just keeps getting better and better!

Vampire Dawn is one of my favorites in the series, not only does she solve the case, but she finally triumphs over the sun! The plot and characters really develop throughout the series, so this one I would recommend starting from the beginning as you will learn a lot about the characters and the multiple plots. These are not your typical vampires and Samantha is not your typical mother!

Each story is definitely worth a credit and time well spent!

Good story but too short

This is a good series. The only thing about this book that I don't like is that it's too short. Not that I want the book to drag on and on, but I think the author could combine a couple of books instead of making them short and leaving a cliffhanger at the end. In each book Samantha's character grows as she learns about her new abilities and how to relate to humans. The way that she interacts with her children, sister, and ex husband is realistic. I can tell that the author is leading up to something big, but, I wish he would get to it and stop writing short stories.

Favorite from the entire series!

If you could sum up Vampire Dawn in three words, what would they be?

Page turner. Listened straight through. Couldn't stop listening.

What did you like best about this story?

More plot lines with more characters.

Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

Sam

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The way she loves her children more than anything else in life. The faith she has and the want to be with them again without the limitations of the sun.

Any additional comments?

You should read "Christmas Moon" (book 4.5) before this book. It has details in that book that pertain to this book.

J R Rain & Dina Pearlman have me hooked

Would you listen to Vampire Dawn again? Why?

I would and have listened to the entire series again, it is a great story, with a completely different view of "Vampires"

What other book might you compare Vampire Dawn to and why?

I can't compare to any, except it has humor like some "Sookie Stackhouse", Except the concept it totally original, not like any other "Vampire" genre.

What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dina Pearlman is wonderful at voicing the characters and their moods. (even the children) I hope she continues to voice this series

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

SPOILER ALERT: The very last chapter when Samantha goes out to watch the sun rise, hoping the "Amulet" that she found will allow her to walk in Sun light like normal humans, so she can enjoy her time with her children.

Any additional comments?

This has been a great series so far and each book has gotten better I only hope it will continue along in this fashion

Exactly Where Does The Blood Come From?

If you could sum up Vampire Dawn in three words, what would they be?

Too Damn Short

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

So short you have to work to stretch it out

Any additional comments?

Samantha Moon delves more into her nature and discovers just how wonderful human blood is compared to her normal diet. Problem is just how willing is are the sources in the vampire community? Plus what is the cost of saving her son from a deadly disease?

Disappointing

This is short with no ending, just a teaser for the next part. I am sorry i paid for it.
