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, 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.
American Vampire (Vampire for Hire #3) finds the drama ratchet up. Her son is sick, possible dying. She found out who Fang is. She learned that there’s more to the light that she can see. Oh, she has to find a missing little girl.
J.R. Rain found his stride in this novel. Samantha “Sam” Moon’s life continues to get complicated but in this novel she handles it better than the previous two. She discovers so much about herself and still after six years of being a vampire she is clueless.
This time she is facing the mother’s dilemma with the ability to give a unique solution. When her son Anthony gets sick early in the novel, she is left with the decision to make her son a vampire to save his life.
I’m starting to realize his theme, each book is like a television season ending with a cliffhanger that carries into the next book. It makes the reader, if they are invested, to want the next book.
In the beginning I was leery of the direction this series would take. It did take me three books to get there but it’s definitely a series to invest in. The mythology works perfectly in the outing making it a better than summer read.
