In J.R. Rain's short story, Samantha Moon meets someone unexpected on a late night trip to Denny's, someone who seems to know all her secrets and has all the answers.
Also included:
"Book Burning": Two brothers find themselves on a late-night mission to burn a legendary book of supposed dark powers.
"The Silo": The land is dying and crops are failing. The city of Wheatopia is in the middle of the worst drought in recent memory; that is, until a city-slicker and his too-thin wife arrive in town one day with designs to rebuild the town's grain silo into something majestic.
Plus, a bonus short story....

Critic reviews

"Powerful stuff!" (Aiden James, author of Cades Cove and The Vampires' Last Lover)
"J.R. Rain's Samantha Moon is one of the most refreshing new characters I have come across in quite some time." (H.T. Night, author of Vampire Love Story and The Werewolf Whisperer)
"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, best-selling author of A Spell for Chameleon and On A Pale Horse)

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

An interesting book that despite seemingly placed between books 2 and 3 seems to get the entire back story of Samantha wrong and make her seem to see the world differently than portrayed throughout the other books. The only thing that saved the book were the other stories that were brought together with the story. I still found his writing over repetitive and over descriptive to the detriment of the story.

Utter rubbish

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a good short story or two

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

It was a collection of inept short stories with no connection to Samantha Moon

Not a Samantha Moon book

Very disappointed. This is a mix of short stories, with only one very light story being of Samantha Moon. The other stories are very eclectic.
