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 VAMPIRE DAWN, Samantha Moon tackles her most frightening case yet. Someone is leaving victims drained of blood, and all signs point to the killer not being a vampire. Meanwhile, Sam can't help but notice the changes coming over her son...fantastical changes that will leave her searching desperately for answers.
As Sam tracks down a ruthless killer, and as her own humanity slips further and further away, an ancient relic holds a secret that will rock her world...and open up a whole new one.
How would you feel as a mother who couldn’t go out in the sun? A mother of two who has to wear long sleeve shirts or jackets and hats even in the summer to cover up from the sun or her skin burns. How would you feel seeing your son with amazing abilities you know are linked to the time you saved him? What does that mean and what do you do?
This is book five of the series. I read all the others before I began blogging and so I don’t have individual reviews of the others. As with those, this one was again a light and fun read. Samantha Moon is a soccer mom raising two kids after a recent divorce due to her condition. Her condition, that of being a vampire, is amazing, awe inspiring, but really just a crimp in her style as she tries to be a regular every day mom. But Samantha does an amazing job of trying to find that balance.
The author has created great characters who complement one another in the whole aspect of the enjoyment of the novel. Kind of a love triangle going on, but they don’t really cross over the lines too much. Great guys she has in her life; both supportive and sexy.
