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 Vampire Moon, sequel to Moon Dance, private investigator Samantha Moon finds herself hunting down a powerful crime lord and protecting an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband—all while two very different men vie for her heart. And as the stakes grow higher and her cases turn personal, Samantha Moon will do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and bring two cold-blooded killers to justice—her own brand of justice.

Series continues in fine form

I am enjoying the continued character development in this series. Since the books are shorter than some, there is a lot of room for more discoveries. It is nice for Samantha to find others to lean on and share her woes with as her family life alters, rearranges and adapts to her vampiric life. I appreciate the fact that there is some explanation to vampire legend as it explores what is truth and what is "myth." I also like the fact that the author gives us a slightly new take on vampires, as this author has determined. A fresh outlook is often welcome. The book sort of leaves us hanging at the end so we can look forward to the next book giving us more focus on that. Dina Pearlman "is" the voice of Samantha Moon. I hope that all future books are read by her. She does an outstanding performance and, I think, gives it just the right touch.

Good, Light Reading

I am a fan of this series, but it's a bit like a good bowl of popcorn; you enjoy it while you're eating it, and you're certainly sorry when it's done, but if something else exciting comes along, you can easily put it down. That said, I have purchased every book and will continue to do so. The writing is smooth, although I felt something was 'off' on the interpersonal relationships until I discovered JR Rain is a man-- then it made sense. Don't get me srong, he is a good writer and makes a great story and an easy read, but the women's inner voice seems like a man's version of a woman's inner voice if you know what a mean. This is a good combo of supernatural and mystery, reminded me of Dresden Files a little. Overall, a good, solid easy to digest series that I will stick with.

cliff hanger

A really enjoyable series so far. Sam Moon; investigator, mom, vampire; can she make it work. She's on the outs with her werewolf (or is he?) friend while divulging way too much info to an internet stranger (or is he?). Well we don't know because, argh, there is a cliffhanger. Sam's 'powers' are expanding while she slides into vigilantism. Her cop friend Sherbet is still suspicious as strange things happen in his city. Though this takes place in O.C., the setting is barely a backdrop. A quick listen The characters are well drawn and the narration adds to the story..

If you can overlook Rain's redundancy you'll enjoy this series

This series by Rain truly is very good. And at the end of my review I point out some of the things that stopped me from giving 5 stars. The narrator is exceptional and has a natural dry wit that I love. Her timing is perfect. And the series is absolutely full of suspense, humor and romance. I really enjoy the fact that the characters have real flaws like all of us. The things I had issues with are that Rain can be extremely redundant. It becomes EXHAUSTING!! He constantly repeats himself and uses the word 'anyway' in an effort to move from one thought to the next. It's just too much! It really starting getting on my last nerve. The editor should have corrected this in the first draft. Rain should have corrected this himself or gone back to middle school for an updated English class.

Interesting

Not my typical read. I enjoyed this book. Some sleazy spots and some gruesome spots. Detailed description of the transformation of the main character. Other than that, a story about about a women whose life is altered, her husband can't handle it. He dumps her. She gains courage and gives her husband a little taste of what he gave her. Typical when people split after being married.

Delightful Listen

Would you consider the audio edition of Vampire Moon to be better than the print version?

Don't know I have never read the papaer version

What other book might you compare Vampire Moon to, and why?

Perhaps Darkness Haunts by Susan Illene. It's an emotional story, lots of inner anks and well rounded characters

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

I feel she demonstrates the inner feelings and character of Sam Moon so well.

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

I did and it is short enough

Any additional comments?

I loved the way she fought for her family and the feelings involving the son are, I am sure, ones I could have felt myself. It is possible to see her abilities grow with each book. Not too many detailed fight scenes, which I hate, and the sex is not overly graphic which is something I can find difficult to read.

Repetative

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Whilst I can occasionally enjoy the story of the books the over description, the need to endlessly repeat to the reader what has been told once, twice or many many times before that in book 1 as well makes it a hard read. It has an interesting idea with a very stereotypical vampire that is boring to imagine makes this book a bit of a let down. The problem is that the cliffhangers at the end of each book makes it stop abruptly where you need to read the next one to find out what will happen.
I had hopes she would be less self focused in this book and actually less man obsessed but that did not happen. I zoned out a lot whilst reading the book. I will continue only because I still have questions that have been left unanswered since book 1 and hate cliffhangers.
