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 the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun. Now working the night shift as a private investigator, Samantha is hired by Kingsley Fulcrum to investigate the murder attempt on his life, a horrific scene captured on TV and seen around the country. But as the case unfolds, Samantha discovers Kingsley isn't exactly what he appears to be; after all, there is a reason why he survived five shots to the head.

Good Read\Listen

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

Don't know never read the paper version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kingsley - I can see lots of story to come

What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

Enjoyed her performance - felt the characters pain etc.

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

I lost a tear when the family separated - I know it's a girl thing but nobody would separate me from my family.

Any additional comments?

New author to me - I hope that the rest of the series is as good as this one.

Great book

This was a great book and I am Eager to listen to the next only thing is the narrator voice does sound at times like someone just going through the motions and not like someone invested in the story line but great overall all and a nice change from the atypical story line of vampires which is great. X thanks for a great story.

A struggle but interesting premise

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I very much struggled through this book. I picked it up on a whim as it sounded interesting but in the end I found the character very steriotypical vampire with no development on the idea. The constant reminders, within a few sentences, of many things with a lot of repetitions of themes or her thoughts throughout the book made me rather frustrated at times. Also the over description of the men made her seem sex craved. The constant reminder of her icy skin or the unnecessary over description of something that had happened earlier made it a hard going read. Sad as it seemed a promising idea. A lot going on without much depth put into most of it. Seemed to jump theme to theme. I will keep going with the series mainly only as the cliffhangers are infuriating.
