Summary

Eight 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 Sun, private investigator Samantha Moon looks into the bizarre disappearance of a woman who enters a Starbucks, but never leaves. Her distraught husband, a person of interest, hires Sam when a Corona Police Department detective gets killed and the case grows cold.

In addition, Sam's former guardian angel - now a fallen angel - makes another, startling appearance. Not to mention, Kingsley, her cheating werewolf lawyer ex-boyfriend, is trying to win her back...at all costs. Daughter Tammy's psychic powers are growing exponentially, as are her best friend Allison's, and son Anthony deals with school violence and starts boxing lessons with his own supernatural strength. Just one big, happy, paranormal family.

Most of all, Sam needs to get her hands on the fourth medallion. Fang, her former friend and love interest, has the diamond medallion, which reputedly will restore mortality, yet allow a vampire certain powers. Needless to say, Sam will do almost anything to get it. But the demoness within Sam threatens to kill the last shreds of her humanity. Suddenly, killing for blood doesn't seem that heinous. Sam knows if she doesn't get that diamond medallion soon, it could be the end of her conscience...and the end of all that she loves most.

I love this series but the books are too short!!!

I really wish J. R. Rain would write a full length novel instead of these short novellas. But I have been saying that since I stumbled on to this series. Never the less, I love this series and have read every book in it. Each book shows character and plot development. Samantha Moon is always awesome and I'm glad Fang is back and is friendly with Samantha again. I'm also happy that Samantha and Kingsley have are becoming friendly again. I can't wait for the next book.

Done with this series

Really enjoyed the earlier books and audio, but this one feels like she's just writing to milk the series. Very uninspired, short and lacks the nail-biting drama of the previous...

Too much inner monolog

I know that as women we constantly have an inner monolog of thoughts swirling around in our heads but most of it need not be shared. I liked the idea of the story behind the book but this particular edition had a lot of repetition (repeating the same details over and over again) and too much sharing of the main characters thoughts. I did appreciate some of the flashbacks to prior stories because it's been a while since I read the previous books in this series, however had it been somewhat recent I probably would not have liked so much flashing back. Overall it will not stop me from continuing with the series, but I do hope there is more "meat" in the next one - more about the mystery that is being solved and less about every detail of Sam's inner thoughts.

Absolutely beautiful

These books have not disappointed me yet. There are so many undertones of scholarly knowledge. The muerder mystery with vampires and werewolves makes it very interesting to read. You won't be disappointed if you know or understand how we are all connected.

I am so happy for Samantha!

i laughed a few times in this book. J.R. Rain has a way of making you laugh, cry and really really existence the emotions of her characters. i hesitated when I had first seen this series. But now I am happy I downloaded it!

Love the series but sometimes it gets on my nerves

The story is good, but the author over uses the words weird weirdos, and freaks. To the point were I question if I really want to finish the series. Another issue I have is the novellas bleed over. I know a lot of authors write novellas, but never have I felt like I may have missed a book or two.

Shallow but fun

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, for a laugh or two in this genre. Pure fluff and fun

What other book might you compare Vampire Sun to and why?

Any other jrr rain, he does these campy books so well

What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I hear tongue in cheek in the reading and it camps it up more.

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

Passing through not really moved
