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.
Okay so, Vampire Moon (Vampire for Hire #2) worked for me. Maybe I needed to warm-up to the characters. Maybe it was that she finally put showed signs of being a real vampire, but I guess that’s all relative.
This time around Samantha Moon is knocking off a lot of first. Her first Kill. Meeting a werewolf. Where she was insecure most of the time in the first novel, this one finds her getting her supernatural legs under her.
Most of the major players return in this novel with great character development. The conflict with Sam and her husband is a minor plot to the story but it’s an important part of the overall story. This is, in my opinion, where it shines.
For the most part J.R. Rain’s mythology is solid. For me these are interestingly new takes on werewolf mythology. It made Kingsley a more interesting character in the reveal.
It ended on an intentional suspenseful high note. That demands the reader to not just want but have to read the next. Teasing us with the question: Who is Fang? I hope that I’m not disappointed with the answer in American Vampire (Vampire for Hire #3) It’s a question that I’ve question since the moment she started chatting with him.
I give Vampire Moon (Vampire for Hire #2) 4 out 5.
