Kurzbeschreibung

Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Seven 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 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.


**Acclaim for the Novels of J.R. Rain**

"Gripping, adventurous, and romantic—J.R. Rain's The Lost Ark is a breakneck thriller that traces the thread of history from Biblical stories to current-day headlines. Be prepared to lose sleep!"
—JAMES ROLLINS, international bestselling author of The Devil Colony

"I enjoyed this immensely. The protagonist, Samantha Moon, is a female vampire with a husband and children. Those predate her condition; six years ago she was attacked by a vampire and rendered into one. Now she's trying to carry on with family and private eye business, and she's a feisty, skilled person, so is doing mostly okay. It is not a horror story; she buys animal blood to eat and doesn't generally prey on humans. But her husband has an increasing problem with her coldness—not of spirit, but of body. 'You sicken me and scare the hell out of me,' he tells her. 'And when I touch you it's all I can do to not gag.' She replies, 'Words every wife wants to hear.' I love this! What makes it special are her character and nature."
—PIERS ANTHONY, bestselling author of A Spell for Chameleon

"Dark Horse is one of the best books I've read in a long time! A great classic detective story with a modern twist. Unique and interesting characters (I think I'm half in love with Jim Knighthorse now!), a great plot that kept me guessing until the end, and some of the funniest lines I've read anywhere."
—GEMMA HALLIDAY, bestselling author of Spying in High Heels

"J.R. Rain delivers a blend of action and wit that always entertains. Quick with the one-liners, but his characters are fully fleshed out (even the undead ones) and you’ll come back again and again."
—SCOTT NICHOLSON, bestselling author of Liquid Fear

"Impossible to put down. J.R. Rain's Moon Dance is a fabulous urban fantasy."
—APRIL VINE, author of Intrigue In India

"Moon Dance is absolutely brilliant!"
—LISA TENZIN-DOLMA, author of Understanding the Planetary Myths

"J.R. Rain is the new modern master of vampires."
—H.T. NIGHT, #1 bestselling Kindle author of Vampire Love Story

"I love Jim Knighthorse! Please write faster, Mr. Rain!"
—ELAINE BABICH, #1 bestselling Kindle author of You Never Called Me Princess

"Moon Dance is a must read. If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, be prepared to love J. R. Rain's Samantha Moon, vampire private investigator."
—EVE PALUDAN, author of Letters from David

"I totally loved The Body Departed. As someone who communicates with those who are either earthbound or have crossed over—your descriptions and interpretations of the dialogue and circumstances could not have been written more accurately."
—JULIE BELMONT, author of The Path to Personal Success and Freedom

"Powerful stuff!"
—AIDEN JAMES, bestselling author of The Vampires' Last Lover

"Jim Knighthorse is a throwback to classic detectives, which is probably why I love him so much. Funny, street-smart, and tough as nails. I love this series."
—SUMMER LEE, author of Angel Heart

“Is it possible to redefine two genres in one book? I don’t know, but J.R. Rain has left a lasting impression for the vampire and mystery genres.”
—P.J

4.0 von 5 Sternen Samantha Moon ist wieder zurück 18. März 2012
Von javelinx TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
7 Jahre sind inzwischen vergangen, seit Samantha Moon aus ihrer gutbürgerlichen Existenz gerissen und zu einem Wesen der Nacht verwandelt wurde. Inzwischen könnte fast so etwas wie Alltag eingekehrt sein, wäre da nicht das nagende Gefühl, immer mehr zum Monster zu werden. Außerdem macht ihr Sorge, daß ihr Sohn Anthony ungeahnte neue Kräfte entwickelt. Dann wird Sam von Detective Sherbet zu einem Fall hinzugezogen, in dem ein Serienkiller seine Opfer blutleer zurückläßt, und es scheint sich um keinen Vampir zu handeln...

Endlich ist Samantha wieder zurück, und diese Folge knüpft an die Stärken des Beginns der Serie an. Der Leser erlebt Samantha wieder mehr von ihrer alltäglichen Seite als Mutter, die ihren Sohn zum Fußball fährt und die Kinder dick mit Lichtschutzfaktor 100 bedeckt jeden Tag von der Schule holt. Das ist klasse gemacht, vor allem, weil sich gleichzeitig der Verdacht einschleicht, daß diese Idylle trügen könnte und noch weiteres Unheil bevorsteht. Sam arbeitet weiter mit Detective Sherbet zusammen und erlebt dabei eine Überraschung; auch ihr Seelenfreund Fang und ihr Lover Fulcrum Kingsley sind wieder mit von der Partie.

Der Fall bringt Samantha an ihre ganz eigenen Grenzen und nimmt eine überraschende Wendung, in der sie auch ihre eigenen Motive hinterfragen muß. Insofern ist die Story überzeugend, sieht man davon ab, daß wieder eine wundersame Wendung durch ein plötzlich aufgetauchtes Artefakt eine Rolle spielt. Schade ist, daß die Geschichte wieder einmal sehr kurz ist und nur 65% des eBooks einnimmt.

Obwohl ich dieses auch wieder sehr unterhaltsam finde, wirkt es auf mich so, als würden ihm die Ideen ausgehen. Abergenerell sehr gut, das ein Mann eine Frau als Hauptcharakter wählt

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed 24. März 2012
Von N. Hutchison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoy J.R. Rain's stories. But it felt like this book was just an ad for other stories. It took only a couple of hours to read this. For the price, that feels like a rip off. I checked the download size of the file. It was about 1/2 to 2/3 of the size of other books I read. When I came to the end, I was only 2/3s of the way through the download. The rest was excerpts from other books. Then when you add in that he included the Christmas story, the actual Vampire Dawn had little content. I enjoyed the story, but again, felt ripped off. This should have been a $.99 download for what was there.

4.0 von 5 Sternen J.R., I'm disappointed 23. März 2012
Von Febgrl77 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With such a long awaited arrival for Vampire Dawn, I snatched it up as soon as it was available. After waiting so long for it to come out and paying the full $3.99 for it, boy was I disappointed to see how short it was. I read it in just a couple of hours. Although it was nice of the author to include Christmas Moon, most of us dedicated fans have already paid for that and read it months ago, so I feel kinda shorted there too. So instead of 5 stars, I have to give 4 for this one. But I do love Samantha Moon and I do love JR's writing style, which probably makes the disappointment hurt more than it normally would. We need more!!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed 22. März 2012
Von Tyreese L. Joseph - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I rarely have to put down a book because I simply can't deal with it any longer. I LOVED Rain's first 3 books, I really did. I found her premise to be unique and original. And, to be fair, the fourth was far from my favorite, but it was tolerable, I've read a lot worse. However, in the fifth book, it seems to me that Rain has gotten lazy. I don't want to include any spoilers, such that I have because I didn't finish the book. But I will say that if you want to write about Vampires, accept that usually includes some built in limitations for your characters. Or, if an author wishes to "push the envelope" and break away from the more mainstream constants, i.e, sunlight, silver, etc., by all means go for it, but use creativity. Using shortcuts like rare magical medallions that just keep cropping up handily for your main character, leave me feeling cheated. This series has so much promise, I'd highly recommend the earlier ones to readers, but my discontent began in the fourth series, and unfortunately, Rain did nothing in the fifth book to dispel those feelings.

4.0 von 5 Sternen what is with the 65% books 9. April 2012
Von Jeremysnana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I love the Samantha Moon books. I don't mind that they are short stories. I do mind that 35% of the book is parts of other books. One of the 1st things I do when I get interested in a book, is look to see how long the book is. In this case it says 4530 ( location count). Yet the story itself is done at only 2978.
So I am giving the book only 4 stars for not forfilling my expectations in length.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but WAY too short 21. März 2012
Von Matthew Schiariti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Vampire Dawn is another fun entry into the world of Samantha Moon, mother and private detective but it's very VERY short. Despite its brevity, Rain packs a good amount of story into this one. Not only is Samantha's humanity more rapidly slipping away but she's also noticing that the aid she gave to her son last year is changing him in ways she's not sure how to handle. He's getting stronger and faster, healing more quickly. Is he becoming what she hates most about herself?

The meat of the story, or the main case, revolves around a series of serial murders and disappearances. People have been disappearing and found in the mountains drained of blood. Samantha helps Detective Sherbet in finding the culprit behind the brutal murders. What's probably more interesting than the actual case is how the supporting characters are tied and affected by their involvement. Sherbet is closely tied to Samantha now and is now getting to know what it's like to be in her head. Literally. Samantha is a psychic supernatural creature of the night and Sherbet finds out the hard way what it's like to be so close to her. In addition, the case of the disappearing/bloodless victims sheds some new light on Detective Hanner.

Not one to fear changing the status quo, JR Rain throws another loop into Samantha's life in the form of the emerald amulet she found in Christmas Moon. What are it's powers and how will they change Samantha going forward?

My one real knock on the story is how short it is. By the time I hit 65% completed on my kindle it was over. I was hoping some more time would have been spent on Samantha's only other vampire companion, Detective Hanner as well as an appearance from her guardian angel that showed up in Christmas Moon. While Hanner makes a small cameo, the guardian angel is nowhere to be found. Danny her lowlife ex makes an appearance as does Archibald Maximus and Kingsley and Fang and some interesting ideas are made on most of those fronts but they're not focused on for too long. For those who haven't read it, Christmas Moon IS included at the very end so it would be best to skip to that and read it first if you haven't already.

Despite its short length it's still a good story in the series and as always it's a fun read. There is no shortage of plot threads for JR Rain to write about in the future so he's left me wanting more without a doubt.
