Publisher's Blurb: Moon Child — the fourth book in the Vampire for Hire Series...
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 in MOON CHILD, sequel to AMERICAN VAMPIRE, private investigator Samantha Moon is faced with an impossible decision — a decision that no mother should ever have to make. A decision that will change her life, and those she loves, forever.
And through it all, Sam finds herself in a lethal game of vampire vs. vampire as a powerful — and desperate — enemy will stop at nothing to claim what he most desires.
Review: In the 4th book of the Vampire For Hire series,Samantha has made the most difficult decision of her life, and now has 4 days to find a way to reverse her son's vampirism before he realizes that he is different. She has rested all her hopes on the mysterious medallion her attacker left behind six years ago, but finding someone who can help her unlock its secrets will nearly kill her. Kingsley gives her a clue, and her new vampire friend Detective Hanner offers the next, and soon Sam is discovering supernatural beings she could never imagine. Meanwhile she is struggling to maintain a friendship with Fang, who has a psychic link with her and really wants to be transformed into a vampire. Although Sam is tempted and truly cares for him, Fang's past is troubling, and his stalking of her leans toward the obsessively creepy. But at the same time he is always supportive and never judgmental, unlike Kingsley who condemns Sam for her choice, while he defends his own decisions to knowingly defend murderers in court. As with the previous books, the parallel situations spotlight the fact that right and wrong is often a matter of perspective and context.
Her relationship with Kingsley apparently over, Sam takes dangerous chances to find someone who can help her, and she soon attracts the attention of an ancient, evil, rotten vampire who wants the medallion and will do anything to possess it. When he kidnaps a sick little boy, thinking he's grabbed Anthony, Sam goes after him. In Moon Child Sam's psychic abilities continue to expand, and there is further evidence of a greater spiritual network in place, behind the scenes. The metaphysical layers to these stories offer teasing views into a much wider, fascinating world.
I really love Sam - she is strong and always tries to do the right thing, even though that places her in danger. She's smart, sarcastic and funny. These books are exciting, interesting, and always fun.
