Summary

Book two in the best-selling Samantha Moon Origins series!

Coping with being attacked and left for dead isn't easy, but Samantha Moon is grateful that she survived - until she suspects she didn't. 

Vanishing from mirrors is only the first of a series of bizarre events that defies explanation, even to her trained investigative mind. A severe allergy to the sun, alertness at night, inability to eat food that isn't blood, and worst of all: She can't remember the last time she needed the bathroom. Of course, it's not all bad. Years have fallen off her face, her hair is perfect, her senses are honed, and (assuming she hasn't gone crazy) she can even see in the dark.

It's all too much to process, so she does the only thing that makes any sense: tries to go back to work.

A huge hat, shades, and half a bottle of high-test sunscreen later, she's back out inspecting properties with her partner Chad. Her first day, she suspects a HUD recipient of having undeclared income. Determined to cling to the career she worked so hard for, Sam traces the money back to small-time arms dealers selling big-time weapons. Everything seems to be routine until her sluggish reflexes get someone shot - and her husband suffers an emotional breakdown.

Worse, she faces a more insidious and dangerous enemy than an apocalyptic militia group with military hardware...daytime.

Most enjoyable

I like the Vampire for Hire series and was delighted to see these origin stories pop up, I read the first one, and was lucky enough to receive a review copy for the audio version of this second one.

The main story in this book revolves around a mad militia group (The brothers of the republic) who shoot Sam's partner and kidnap a reporter. Sam, awake all night and thoroughly bored decides to go and investigate. This is the really fun part of the story.

I am confused by her husband Danny in this story (and the previous one) he comes accross as loving and caring, so I am keen to see how he changes in book 3, in order to become the nasty character he is in the orginal series.

Kristen Clemmer does a great job with the narration.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who's ever enjoyed the Vampire for Hire series (especially the earlier books), and for anyone who is new to the series this would be a great place to start.

Ok

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Although I enjoyed listening I found it very slow going.

Awful narration on a great story

Did you purposely pick a narrator that sounded like a 60 yr old chain smoker?? Loved the book but the audible portion was a major struggle for me!
