    "Vampire Sun” is Book 9 of the “Vampire for Hire” series. The series is not lesfic, but features a generally entertaining MC who is trying to figure out how to be a good person, mother and friend while also being a vampire. You have to read the series in order for the events and characters to make any sense. Some of the books are terrific, and some are so-so.This book is slightly better than so-so. It does advance the story arc, and the detective mystery that PI Samantha Moon works on is better than some of the other books. The narrator continues doing an excellent job.Overall, though, this book offered nothing particularly new or interesting, other than moving the story along. It’s a 3.5*, rounded up to 4* on the strength of the narrator.

    Vampire Sun 3.5 starsSamantha Moon has been hired by a man that could very well be losing his mind over the loss of his wife. Having gone into a Starbucks to get them both a drink, she went in and never came back out. Even weeks later the police have no clues, she went in and disappeared end of story or is it. Really, how can someone simply vanish?When Samantha teams up with the new detective that has been assigned to the case, she’s able to find things that most would have missed but once again, not all is simple cut and dry in Samantha Moon’s world. Her children are getting stronger every day both physically and super naturally as is her friend Allison. Her love-hate relationship with Kingsley is still just that and there is still the ongoing question of what happened to Fang and the diamond medallion. The very powerful medallion that could release her from the demon inside her that is growing stronger each and every day.While I didn’t like this story as much as I did some of the other ones, it was still good. You get answers to some of the age old questions that if you have you read the stories you may have been asking yourself. You still get the inner dialog of craziness that Samantha thinks about all the time but I didn’t the final outcome of what happened to Lucy Gleason. I was hoping that it would have been some great climatic super natural ending and it didn’t. I debated on giving it simply 3 stars but I feel it was better than that since you do get answers to other questions but it’s just not quite a 4 stars either.

    This Samantha Moon episode contained a great 'mystery on the side' while we learned much new information about Samantha (as did she!). This was funny, cute - totally how I remember the Vampire For Hire series. I don't know why I didn't follow through with the series, instead taking a far too long break from it. While reading Vampire Sun it was easy to recall just why Vampire For Hire has been one of my favorite all time series. If any indie vampire book series deserves a tv buyout, this is the one. A movie couldn't do it justice as there are just too many details to fit in to a 2 hour sitting. Lots of imagination and story building in this series! Samantha is truly good, defying any evil inclinations vampirism has brought her. With it's great cast of characters, I believe this could be something fabulous for weeknight tv! I listened to the audio version of Vampire Sun, with Dina Pearlman narrating, and if even possible - this fine narration takes my favorite series/book character to even higher levels. I found myself laughing out loud many times - laughing along with the reader who skillfully played out the emotions of the characters throughout the book. My favorite was an outburst by Sam while in a restaurant with Kingsley - with Kingsley later reiterating the outcome. So funny! I also enjoyed the references to Knighthorse and the PI gang - wish there were more Knighthorse episodes. Read those all years ago and still recall that I loved Jim Knighthorse!Perfect 5 star read and 5 star narration!!! Loved it!!!

    Finally!!! Finally I got an ending I enjoyed!!! After staying with this series, fighting frustration and annoyance over several issues, I got my wish, and the ending I’ve been wanting!!! I’m almost giddy with amazement that I got to the end of a volume, and didn’t want to pull out my hair!! I won’t spoil anything for anyone here, though I wish I could gush on for paragraphs, but so far this has been my favorite book of the series!! After reading of Samantha’s struggles that never end, it was so refreshing to have a book that actually delivered some good news, that gave her hope for the future, and helped her focus on who and what in her life made her the happiest and healthiest. I have to admit that I’m already worrying that this may just be a high before a long, dark fall, but I’m at least glad Samantha got to experience some happiness, and I along with her, before anything else happens!! Also, I really, really enjoyed this book, but please Author Rain would you let up on the skid mark references?!! Or at the very least add a conversation between Samantha and her son in which she respectfully, but clearly makes her point that he needs to pay more attention to his personal hygiene, gives him the instruction and extra education he obviously needs, teaches him how to wash his own underwear, and provides him with the readily available, easily flushable personal cleansing cloths that could end the nightmare for everyone involved?!! Please!! I’m a mother, and I would never let this situation continue, if for no other reason than a kid is going to be mercilessly teased if he walks around in that condition on a regular basis, or even if it’s a one-time horrendous accident at school!!! Children can be cruel, and it’s irresponsible parenting to treat something like that as a joke all the time!! It’s also extremely gross to read about in every single book!!! I’m begging you, please stop!!

    Another good one.I missed this one when I was reading the series. Glad I found it. Most of the series is really good reading, but some of the later ones were a huge disappointment for me. This one I recommend.

    Vampire Sun, a Vampire For Hire mystery, by J.R.RainI’m always struck at the difference between reading a novel by a so-so or sorta good novelist and reading one by an author who has worked at and mastered his or her craft. While many of the first type are enjoyable reads, picking up a novel written by a real master is a sensual delight. The writing flows so that the reader is unaware he/she is reading, but just keeps turning the page (or in this case, signaling the screen to turn the page!), oblivious to the passage of time, conscious only of experiencing the story. And J.R. Rain is often one of those masters. Does it help that I have followed this series from Book 1? Sure. That means that I know Samantha Moon and her friends and family very well. Old friends that I am happy to see and welcome into my life for a brief time. Too brief a time, in fact, as I devour each episode just as if it were a chocolate caramel turtle cheesecake. So, does that mean there was nothing to comment on for this novel? Now, you all know me better than that. But my questions aren’t so much for Rain as for the digital publishing community. Here’s one: Is it not possible, when digitally mastering an e-book, to do a hard page break? In this book, all too often, the bottom of the page was “Chapter Whatever,” with the actual chapter starting on the next screen. I’ve seen this before, but also feel that I’ve seen novels where the digital mastering included clear endings of chapters on one page and the start of the next chapter on the next page, and managed to do so uniformly throughout the novel. Just asking, it obviously didn’t impede my reading, as I finished this book in a little over 24 hours (plus watched some tv, did some cross stitch, did housework, laundry, gardening, and even slept). It occurred so often with this novel (reading on a first generation Kindle Fire) that it became sort of a running joke with me whenever it occurred. I also noticed at least twice in this novel, in a relatively short span of time, that Rain mentions, in a sort of aside to the audience (one of the things I like about his writing style – that “thinking” that is directed almost as conversation to the reader) that Sam could see auras. I first noticed it at about location 133, then again at location 1237 (the novel ends at about 3484). Was that intended or just making sure the reader understands? But there is so much more to love about the writing. Great pacing, realistic dialogue, characters the reader cares about, real life concerns, great humor, as well as great pathos. Here’s one thing Rain does that I really like – he inserts references to current pop culture: books, TV, movies, tech toys. I feel it does a lot to bring the stories into the reader’s everyday life. I know every writing coach I ever had would say it also degrades the story as to its relevance to readers, say 20 years in the future, but it certainly appeals to readers who are ingesting (yes, ingesting) these stories within the same timeline that the writing is done. Maybe this has to do with the way Rain publishes his works, which seems to allow him an opportunity to write, edit/proof, and publish in a much shorter time frame that traditional publishing. In this episode some of the references would include Sam’s ever favorite TV personality, Judge Judy, who, of course, appeared on the very first page of the novel, and the TV series Vampire Diaries, the book-to-movie series Twilight, the book (also a movie) Beautiful Creatures, and, of course, everyone’s favorite social media, Facebook. This particular episode explores Samantha’s struggle to understand and best the demon who resides within her, her need to live as normal a life as possible, her continuing concerns for her son, Anthony, and her relationships with her sister, with Kinglsey, Fang, and even a scene with the ghost of her ex-husband, Danny. It advances her quest to find a way to walk in the sunlight and to once again experience the joy of just eating everyday foods. She has a mystery to solve, and she does so, in a way. The ending leaves a door open to seeing further growth and further intrigue in coming novels. Maybe Vampire Sun was not the most exciting or dangerous episode of the series, but certainly one that kept me reading, reading, reading straight through to the end.

    3.5 Stars — Vampire Sun is a paranormal mystery/urban fantasy by J.R. Rain and the 9th book in his Vampire for Hire series.The series revolves around Samantha “Sam” Moon, former federal agent and divorced soccer mom, turned private investigator after an attack, six years ago, turned her into a vampire. In Vampire Sun, Sam is hired by a distraught husband to investigate the bizarre disappearance of his wife who was seen entering a Starbucks, but never leaving.Additionally, Sam's ten-year-old son, Anthony, whose own supernatural strength continues to develop, begins boxing lessons with her trainer, Jacky, and the two instantly form a very unusual bond. Her daughter's psychic powers are growing exponentially, as are her best friend Allison's, while her sister Mary Lou—the only one without any obvious extrasensory abilities—begins to feel like the odd woman out. Sam’s former guardian angel—now a fallen angel—makes another, startling appearance. And though not quite over the loss of her former friend Fang, Sam finally comes to realize, even as the demoness within her threatens to kill the last shreds of her humanity, that she'd rather re-establish her friendship with Kingsley—her cheating werewolf lawyer ex-boyfriend who's been trying to win her back—than have none at all.Sam needs to get her hands on the fourth medallion, which reputedly will restore mortality, yet allow a vampire certain powers. And when suddenly, killing for blood doesn’t seem that heinous, she 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.Vampire Sun is another entertaining read in the Vampire for Hire series, in which Sam is slowly coming to terms with the loss of her relationship with Fang, and learning to forgive Kingsley his past discretions. While her feelings for Fang are still all over the map, mostly there's just confusion. He’d done much to help her in the early days, and, later, had turned her life upside down. But in the end, Fang had made the decision to go behind her back; to move forward without her. And his siding with Hanner had broken her heart. Despite the fact that Sam had been treating Kingsley like shit, he had, in fact, proven himself to be a good man the past year. He’d come through more than once, saving her ass more than once. Being there for her, through thick and thin. And though I do not condone infidelity—there were supernatural extenuating circumstances involved—I must say that I'm really happy, because I always liked them together!Content: graphic language and mild violence.I also recommend:

    Seriously? Has Samantha Moon (or JR Rain) never heard of a strainer? She couldn't strain the animal blood before she devours it?

  • IslandRiverScribe
    2018-10-27 21:27

    As our story opens, Samantha Moon has two major problems, one professional and one personal. The professional problem ensues from being hired by a distraught husband whose wife disappeared three weeks prior. Now, spousal disappearances are relatively common compared to other potential tragedies, but this woman disappeared from a Starbucks. She went in, she ordered, she headed toward the bathroom and then was never seen again. The surveillance tape clearly shows her entering the store but it never shows her leaving, not by any entrance or window. The woman has fine and truly disappeared, as in “Beam me up, Scotty” disappeared.The personal problem is far nastier, however. The demon inside Sam, the entity that makes her a vampire, is getting stronger every day. The demon’s thoughts are coming through more often and it is getting harder for Sam to distinguish between her own ideas and those of the demon. Sam is beginning to enjoy the taste of the animal blood she used to despise. She finds herself evaluating people as potential straight-from-the-vein sources of nutrition. And she no longer abhors the sight of death. In fact, she’s beginning to think that violent death is normal.Sam knows that she has to retrieve the Diamond Medallion soon. She knows that she is only one slip-up, one crack in the armor, from losing her soul completely to the demon. Activating the medallion will force the demon from her body, will negate the need for drinking blood, and yet will allow Sam to retain all her other vampire skills and her immortality. And Sam has learned that Fang is the only person who knows where the medallion is located. Oh, joy!J. R. Rain stated earlier this year that “Vampire Sun” would be the final entry in the Samantha Moon series. He has since rescinded that decision, with several more entries now in the works. However, had this actually been the final book, it would have been a fine last hurrah. This novella brings together all the major themes from previous times – her work, her resident demon, the four medallions, her guardian angel, the Librarian, Fang, and Talos (the bat creature). Her children are still struggling with their grief over the recent murder of their father. Her son’s super-human strength is still growing. And then there’s Kingsley.Each of these plot lines is resolved satisfactorily, if not perfectly, by the end of the story. As stated previously, Rain intended it to be the last. But apparently, those imperfections provided Rain with a jumping-off point for yet another story arc. And, of course, as long as there is life, there is always another tale to tell.

    So glad to see Samantha moving on in both her love life, her relationship with Fang and two ex's, and striving to fight her inner demon with a little more zeal by the end of this story. I just wish her dark master was less in charge than she is or that Sam fought harder than she seems to at times. And personally for me....Samantha needs to get a bit tougher and stronger in her personal relationships and not just her business relationships. How a badass ex-Fed, PI vampire, with a stinking dark master riding shotgun can sit back and take so much shit from the men in her life is beyond me. Seriously, they are all a bunch of cheaters and users and I'm sort of tired of her mopping over any of them. (view spoiler)[.......My guardian angel loves me sooo much he set me up to be attacked by a vampire so I would be immortal like him (even though it means I'd be possessed by a demon dark master). In fact he loves me soooo much that he set up my then boyfriend to cheat on me so I would see that he wasn't worthy of me. And said boyfriend did cheat, but you know...he didn't really mean it because he was set up by the Angel. And let's not forget my BFF/crush, the ex-murderer, prison escapee who was my closest confidant until he decided I wasn't going to give him the immortality he wanted so desperately (or at least not give it to him fast enough to suit him) and was, let's face it using me to get, so he sold me out to another vamp the first change he got so she would turn him. And let's not even get started with my ex-husband who abandoned me, tried to take my children, etc, etc..... Seriously there are some great male character in the cast, the detective and the alchemist/librarian, so why is she dating such horrible characters? (hide spoiler)]

    One reason I've enjoyed reading the Vampire for Hire series is because in a literary world heavy laden with young, rich and incredibly beautiful characters it is nice to read about a normal person who struggles with the everyday issues like laundry with the added bonus of the supernatural.In "Vampire Sun" Samantha Moon almost comes full circle. She is dealing with the aftermath of her ex-husband's death and it's effect on her children. Meanwhile, she is asked to investigate the strange disappearance of a woman by her husband. It seems she went into a Starbucks for coffee but never existed. The police are baffled but of course Samantha manages to uncover the truth.While investigating the disappearance, Sam will have to come face to face with the details of her past and what effects these details will have on her future. This read has all of the typical aspu that have made this series so successful including incredible humor and kickass detective work. However. what was missing for me was depth. We get a cursory glance at Sam with various favorite characters such as Allie, the angel, the kids and Kingley. I wish more time had been spent with one or more of these great supporting characters especially since this was such a short read. As much as it pains me to say. it is clear that the series is losing some of its shine and should probably come to the end soon. I always think it is best when you can end while you are on top. With that being said, I think "Vampire Sun" is another solid read in the series and I definitely recommend it.

    J.R. NEVER DISAPPOINTS!Where do I start, first of all, I think this is my favorite book in the series. What I love about this series and this book in particular is even though Samantha, the main character is a vampire, her human qualities, especially her mothering qualities, and the need to do good always take precedence in the end. We do see see Sam fighting with herself to not let the demon within out. A couple of revelations come out in this book that grab you by surprise, which tells you just how good of a writer J.R. truly is, because after nine books in this series he is still able to surprise us. Love the characters and the enticing plot that keeps us wanting more. This was supposed to be the last one in the series but thank goodness J.R. listened to the fans and decided not to end the series. The author also has a seamless way of intersecting pertinent information from previous books but at the same time, as the series gets longer, more of the book is devoted to that. I understand this need but at the same time, maybe a little less would be sufficient to jog someone's memory of previous books. This is definitely a series that you want to read as a whole and in order. To those Samantha Moon fans out there this book is a must read, you won't be disappointed!

    This book felt like the end of a series to me. There were a lot of loose ends tied up and we got cameos from all our favorites of the series (the Librarian, Fang). We even get a pretty good HEA for Sam (as much as can be expected at this point). This is a really solid read.Sam is fighting her inner demon with all she has. She's adapted over the years, but it looks like the final fight is here. Using love to fight the evil inside of her appears to be the only reason she is surviving. She and Kingsley are still in their adorable love-hate relationship, complete with sarcastic wit. She and Fang are trying to reconnect in a new way that challenges them each. Sam's bloodlust is resurfacing and she has to make some tough decisions. All of this is happening while her children continue to grieve for their father (while keeping his death a secret). A lot changes in the end and all of it for the better. Sam is able to address some old issues and find a really wonderful path forward. The end of this book left me with warm and fuzzy feelings for everyone (even some of the previously jerky characters). I'm almost sad to open things back up again in the next book (but will read it anyway, because I love these characters!).

    I thought for some reason that I had read this was going to be the last book in the series, obviously I was mistaken.Vampire Sun may be one of the best books in the series, Sam always has problems to work out , some monumental and many very normal (like dealing with her sister and kids). What never happens for me in these novels is being bored, her life interests me, her newly discovered skills interest me, and her shambles of a love life make me sad but looks like that might be picking up a bit.In addition to her different vampire problems she has to solve, she actually has a real case that has nothing to do with vampires but seems to be something really strange when a woman disappears completely and Sam is hired to find her. Great story and I still love these books and hate to even think about them ending.Bottom Line: 5 Stars because I am addicted to reading about her life, Samantha Moon is an exceptional story because there is no other characters like her being written, she has enough human feelings to allow people to connect to her while fighting off everything from demons to cheating husbands and boyfriends. Whats not to love, 5 Stars ...

    Samantha Moon books have been my addiction since the very first one and I'm like a little kid at Christmas when I see Rain has released a new one. Some are better than others, some are scarier, some more emotional, but all of them go too fast for me. This newest is no different. It was over before I knew it, which happens when I enjoy a book so much my mind escapes into the pages (electronics??) of the authors creativity. I felt like this one tied up some ends for me, like questions I had about the medallions, questions about Sam's ex, and questions about where Sam might be heading in her love life. Sam's new case was fun too- a real brain teaser that brought on a new detective who was really likable, and an ending that kind of surprised me but was very much in line with Sam's beliefs. If you're Samantha Moon fan, grab this one up now. You won't be disappointed. And if you haven't started the series yet, go back to the first and read through- you'll become a fan fast. Gotta love J.R. Rain's books!

    A totally devastated man hires private investigator/mom/vampire, Samantha Moon, to find his wife who entered a Starbucks but never came out. A lot more both on the home front as well as what Samantha learns about the dark master inside her and Sam’s bloodlines.One of the things I like about this series and this book is the slow reveal of information to Sam and the reader and that the story line changes enough to keep the series interesting.There are things I dislike and it pertains to the entire series. One of them is editing issues and the other is that the author doesn’t appear to know how to express emotions very well in a female character other than with a hug, worry or crying. I’ve never felt like I’ve been in Sam’s head, feeling her emotions. However the characters and situations are definitely interesting and the author tells a good story that slowly gets darker with each book and reveal.

    Absolutely fantastic!I absolutely love the Samantha Moon series and what J. R. Rain has done with it. Vampire Sun was fantastic. Still has all things classic Samantha Moon. Her humor and sarcasm keep you entertained throughout the story. She still has so much to learn and figure out about herself and her growing powers. But now she has to figure out what's going on with her son too. I always enjoy the private detective work she does and how she works hard to figure out her cases. J.R. Rain did a great job with this book and gives us glimpses of more things that come to light regarding Sam and her life fighting the evil she feels in herself. I was a bit surprised at the ending but in a good way. This was another highly entertaining book in this awesome series. Can't wait to see what JR has in store for us next. Highly recommend this series if you enjoy a strong...funny....sarcastic...heroine.

    Sam has a new client: a man whose wife disappeared inside a Starbucks. While it’s an interesting idea with a cool twist and solution, I could tell it was just a framework to hold the real story about Sam’s vampire problems. They didn't quite mesh. I wish something more would happen interesting with Mary Lou. Yes, she was kidnapped and almost killed, but other than being a second mom to the kids, she’s kind of been short changed. She can’t read minds, but has to stand by and wait while everyone else rudely ‘talks’ around her. She’s done a lot for Sam and deserves to have something special for herself. Quick Thoughts: 1) I like how Sam’s made am intelligent partnership with her flying beast.2) The Librarian is getting very existential, but I still like him. He’s definitely a good guy. Fave Scenes: Starbucks men’s bathroom, Sam & Kingsley’s dinner argument, revisiting the cave and the two rings.

    I really enjoyed this book.There are several story threads in this book; Sam's PI case of the missing wife, the alchemical medallions, Sam's evolution and her kids & "normal" life. Although the narrative frequently recaps past events from previous books, I do think that you have to have read the others to truly understand this one (not that I've read all the novellas associated with this series but I have read all the main novels). But I suppose that is the case for most books in a series. Anyway, I was obviously involved in this book as I found myself chuckling out loud, tense on the edge of my seat and had a lump in my throat (I actually shed a tear at one poignant moment).The Vampire For Hire series continues to entertain me, I look forward to reading the next novel "Moon Dragon"

    So glad to see Rain starting to tie up some of the many threads he's spun out through this series. (view spoiler)[ We get lots of information about what's going on with the medallions, her son's weird abilities, and the "demon" inside her. Even better, she seems to be resolving the romantic issues. Don't get me wrong, cheating is usually a deal breaker for me, but Kingsley's redeemed himself pretty well by risking his life for her multiple times since she dumped him. And Fang should be making her skin crawl, not debating whether or not she still loved him. Just ewww.. (hide spoiler)] The case was pretty obvious but nonetheless entertaining. I understand that the next installment is the end of the series. I hope it's satisfying.

    'Vampire Sun' is just as good, if not better than the first eight books in this series. The storyline is packed with action, drama, mystery, hints of romance and tons of humor. I love the characters. Samantha is just as sarcastic as ever, which I love. She keeps me guessing at times with her decisions, but in the end I know she will always kick-ass. I enjoy the references of the creative author that sounds a lot like J.R. Rain himself in quite a few of these books. Maybe Sam 'should sue his ass'. :) I look forward to reading the next book in the 'Vampire for Hire' series. A must add to your tbr list. Definitely recommended.

    Still philosophic but more detective orientedThis one achieved a better balance--the philosophy and religion aspects were there, but it didn't consume or overwhelm the story. This one leaves Sam with quite a personal conundrum, even while she manages to clear up her detective work quite tidily. And exhibits more of her slide under her dark master's thrall, despite a thrilling discovery. Looking forward to seeing how she kicks its butt. (Rain still needs to run an edit check on sound-alike and missed words, FYI, on most of the series. This book is not as bad as some, but there were a few head-shaking moments.)

    I completely love this series, and this book kept me laughing through the whole thing. I love the story J. R. Rain weaves with samantha moon, you cant help but laugh with her or feel like things are crazy as much as she does. This newest book is amazing, with so much happening you wont want to put the book down. This is one vampire series I am happy I own and I cant wait for the next book in Samantha Moon's saga. If you havent read this series, what are you waiting for??? The author is never a disappointment, he amazes, delights, and keeps you laughing and wanting to know what happens next.

    I love this series. Samantha's adventures continue in this book and keep you on your toes, wondering what will happen next. Will she find the Diamond medallion? Will she be able to use it? Will she get everything that she wants? What about her and Kingsley? I love how JR Rain keeps things interesting, and each story has different problems, but still builds off of the previous story. There are too many series out there, that are the same thing, over and over and over again. This is not one of them.
