    Moon ChildVampire for Hire, Book 4By: J. R. RainNarrated by: Dina PearlmanThe books just keep getting better! What would you do if you son was dying and you could change him to a vampire? Would you? At age 7, he would be a vampire? Plus, another child is kidnapped, they thought it was her son. A lot goes on in this book!The narrator is the same as the other books and this keeps things consistent. She is an excellent narrator/actress and makes this series 'POP'!!!


  • Kara

    “Moon Child” is the fourth book in the 13+ book series “Vampire for Hire”. The series is paranormal, and MC Samantha is hetero. After a slow patch in book three, the series regains strength in “Moon Child” with a solid story, and nice treatment of Samantha struggling with being a good mother who faces choices for her dying son that only a vampire would face. What really shines in book four is the humanity of Samantha the vampire. As she tells a friend: “I’m still me. I’m still [...]


  • Sue

    I found this installment pretty disappointing. There were too many easy coincidences, and Sam, who until very recently was still trying to figure out many of her vampire traits is suddenly capable of way, way too much. Holding off an ancient, super powerful vampire? Solving the mystery of the relic in a matter of days, when beings have searched and wondered for ages? She can hold the thing in her hand with no problems at all but when she wears it it suddenly embeds itself? She's out constantly d [...]


  • Erica Chilson

    I'm using my personal copy for BYOB (Bring your own Book) month for Wicked Reads 4 Stars Moon Child picks up exactly where American Vampire left off, overlapping a few pages, as Sam struggles with a conflict of conscience. Sam makes a difficult choice, knowing those in her life won't understand. Danny, her ex, and Kingsley think her a monster for doing the unthinkable. But Sam has nearly four days to find the answer to how to unlock the amulet and use the cure on her son. Sam uses her abilities [...]


  • Eliza Brand

    I'll start off by saying right off, I didn't finish this one. I think I'm done with this series. I can't imagine any mother that would turn their young child into a vampire, even to save their life. So the motivation from the very beginning the book was so flawed it made it difficult for me to care about Sam's search for a way to some how now cure him. I don't know if she was successful and frankly I don't really care enough to finish the book.


  • Chris

    I feel like this story is starting to go off the rails at bit, new vaguely supernatural creatures that defy any description and lots of vamps that just happen to live in Fullerton, CA, even though there are only a few hundred around the planet. (??) I feel sorry for Sam's kids, I can't help it. Her sister is mostly raising them, and I think the author feels like if he inserts one scene of a tickle fight then all is forgiven. Still, an entertaining story, but needs some editing.


  • Wicked

    Good. Still really like the characters. Glad there wasn't a cliff hanger. Short. 3.5 rounded up to 4 mostly because I wanted more (especially of Fang).


  • Nancy

    Action packed, twisty, full of moral dilemmas. I liked this one better that the 3rd novel. There was no cliff hanger on the end of this one, which was a relief!


  • Cheyenne Meadows

    I really like this series. It's definitely a different play on vampires. I think it's very creative and fun. I wasn't sure about the decision she had to make in this book but I was hoping for a happy ending lol.


  • Matt Schiariti

    JR Rain changes it up a little bit yet againhot on the heals of American Vampire, Samantha Moon is left with a horrible decision. that will quite literally change her dying son's life foreverDoes she let him continue on his predestined path as described in the previous novel or does she use her own vampiric powers to change him into a monster like herself with only the hope that the medallion left to her by her maker MIGHT be able to reverse the vampire curse?There are no cases here. Samantha is [...]


  • Bookmom

    Private investigator, mother and vampire, Samantha Moon must make a very difficult decision. Her son is going to die within hours; apparently his life was supposed to be short and Anthony is accepting of it. Should she be selfish and turn him into a vampire to prevent his death? Would he be trapped in a seven year-old’s body forever? Can the medallion that she has and everyone else is looking for really reverse vampirism and make the person mortal again? If so, how? If she changes her son she [...]


  • Pamela

    I said I was done for a while but I could not leave a small boy the age of,seven near death. I hate cliff hangers. This book at least kept going on a better course of events, and not jumping around. Sam has solved one crisis, only to be involved with several more. Her own son is quickly running out of time, when another child from the same hospital goes missing.Now she has two children to save again like the last book. Her love life is still up and down, and is on again off again ,with both, sti [...]


  • Jackie

    My heart was a wreck on Sam's behalf with this one and by the end my tears of relief for her sake fell fast and furious, even with all the unnecessary repetition in the story this one was my favorite of the four books.


  • Mary Ellen

    After a rough start which led me to put it down for several days, I finally got back into the book about two days ago. I put it down because I wasn’t sure I wanted to continue reading a child in peril story, and especially where it was leading. I was also upset by a line in the story where God is blamed, and worse, for the situation the heroine is in, and the decision she made because of it. I understood why the author would write the character this way, why it would be one of the places she m [...]


  • Gabriella

    Whilst better written than the others of the series, Samanta Moon still remains difficult for me to like or keep up with as a character. She has 3 men who dote on her at least, 2 children she barely sees and yet despite making herself out to be a good mother leaves them with her sister more than spending time with them. Is still insistent on being overly descriptive of some of her abilities that were brought out in previous books. All in all despite the better story I still found myself frustrat [...]


  • Karen

    I've now finished all 4 of this J.R. Rain series. They are light reads thus the three stars, but that doesn't mean they aren't entertaining -- they are. It's just that they are not great literature, so don't expect that. I wish the author had a better copy editor -- soooo wish and a good proofreader. Nothing stops me for minutes more than finding mistakes/typos. Also, our protagonist is repetitive, which can lead to boredom. The books weren't boring but read with your editing mind at rest. Just [...]


  • Donna Langley

    Another hit!!Another hint my book. Was truly awesome and full of ghost and mysteries, I want more and this author is giving it to us but really was cheering her and fangs start of something,now I hurt for him. I wanted them together and omg so close to losing her son! Glad it turn out good


  • Deborah Yunevich

    Another thrilling bookSamantha is a continual surprise. I love how she is evolving, and the interaction with the people around her. Her sister is a constant supporter. What else will Samantha and her friends get into? I can't wait.


  • Brigitta Moon

    An Enjoyable SeriesI'm getting ready to read the next book in the series. I love it. I definitely recommend this book to vampire readers.


  • Lisa

    EntertainingI enjoyed this book, as I have the others before it. The family bond and courage of motherhood was awesome. Evil verses good is not knew but fun to read about.


  • Anthea

    2.5 starsFourth book of the series, and I just couldn’t gel with this book. It was difficult for me to keep interested in continuing. I just didn’t really enjoy it.


  • Stella Kydd

    This was a good read, but it's almost getting a tad aon the black and white side, I like my shades of grey.


  • Vicki

    Loved it, loved it, loved it! Really like Samantha Moon and her family.


  • Charity

    Took me longer to get through this one. The first few books were interesting. This one not so much.


  • Cheryl Liacos-Halstead

    Mother's LoveAnother winning book by J.R. Rain. Never doubt a mother's love. We will care for our children with our dying breath. Sam's son Anthony is very ill. Many choices will be made by Sam and relationship will change. New friends and Sam is growing at n many ways. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.


  • Tamara

    Generally speaking, the book was good, I liked it. But on the downside it was very predictable and too short (same as the previous books)! There was one small twist toward the end which seemed interesting, and had lots of possibilities, but the author corrected and our favorite werewolf was redeemed. It would have been interesting if Kingsley was actually a bad guy. Poor Fang, he got booted into the friend zone, which didn’t surprise me. One thing that bothered me, was Sam saying every several [...]


  • Sharon Powers

    Book Review by: Sharon Powers. Moon Child by J.R. Rain, is Book 4 of the Vampire for Hire Series (Samantha Moon as protagonist). Pages number at 214--a relatively short book, I consider 400 pages to be an average book in size. This edition I read on the Kindle e-reader; I read it for free because I got it from the Kindle Free Lending Library (I can choose one free book per month from the lending library). "Text-to-Speech," "X-Ray," and "Lending" are features enabled for this book. BRIEF SYNOPSI [...]


  • Kat Lebo

    Moon Child (#4 in the Samantha Moon/Vampire for Hire series) by J.R. RainFor those of you who have read my other reviews of this series, please note my rating. Yes, there was no cliffhanger ending on this episode, and that, coupled with a slam-bang story, I'm very happy to give a 5-star rating. All the things I've said before that I like about Rain's writing are evident in this book: great proofreading and editing, wonderful characterizations, amazing multiple storylines, all woven together mast [...]
