First, let me say that I love Samantha Moon. She is so different than the average vampire female. Samantha is a mother, a wife, a sister and a detective trying to make her way in this new vampire world on her own, well, almost alone. She is funny, quick, and sympathetic. The people that Sam meets on her journey are as interesting as she. Her relationship with her husband, soon to be ex, is very recognizable to any person having gone through a divorce. The tension between Sam and her estranged husband, Danny, can be felt, and makes the reader feel uncomfortable when they are together.

Having said that, J.R. Rain needs to hire a better proofreader. In each Vampire for Hire book, the proofreading mistakes were very distracting. When a reader gets into a flow of reading, an error is like a stop sign out of nowhere. It pulls you up short, and then you have to find your place and get back into the flow. Also, Samantha told Fang, her Internet "friend," twice about her decision in regard to her son, once on the phone and then in the bar later. The dialogue was the same. What?? Also, some of the dialogue seemed like it was repeated from the other books. Another problem for me was the spiritual beings guiding and helping Samantha. They just seemed a bit too convenient. I also thought the ending was rather contrived. The connection with Fang was so played up, but then he is just cut loose without much storyline. I felt the loose ends were wrapped up too neatly. The reader is asked to suspend their disbelief a bit too much this go around with the Lifetaker in the hills, Leland the Ghost, the spirit guides, and Archibald Maximus coming in with happy ending.

Finally, before I get too many haters out there, let me say that, over all, I loved Moon Child.

I have throughly enjoyed the Samantha Moon series but I feel as though this one could have been longer. As one other reviewer observed the story could have been fleshed out a lot more but I am guessing that Mr. Rain wants to keeps us guessing until the next one.

If you are a Samantha Moon fan you will definitely enjoy this one. Just be prepared for the book to end at 76% and then you will be bombarded with excerpts from all his other books, most of them you have probably read before.

I did enjoy this book quite a bit. Out of the other books in the series, I have to admit, this was my least favorite. I like seeing Samantha as a real kick-butt type of gal, but in this book, she spends half her time weeping. That is not the Samantha I know. I also know, as being a mother myself, that if my child was on the brink of death, I would have done exactly what she did, but I would not leave his side. When my own son was in the hospital, I did not leave him except to find a decent cup of coffee. Samantha hardly ever seemed like she was there. Her daughter, was kind of an after thought. What I did like was her coming clean to Shebert, and him not being surprised by her revelation to him. His acceptance of her was completely believable because of the past books, and the development of their relationship. I was also pleased to see her and Kingsley make peace with each other, and admit, at least to herself, her true feelings for him. The relationship with Fang, I could do without and seems like more of a distraction, rather than playing any key role in her journey. I do no understand their telepathy with each other. Fang is not a real vampire, but a wanna-be. For what reason that I cannot figure out, Samantha, knowing his brutal and deadly past, even keeps him in her life at all. She alternately hates and loves Kingsley because of what he does, but completely accepts Fang? Kind of a double standard if you ask me. Fang seems to be a means to an end for the author to have Samantha verbalize her feelings. I hope if the series continues, Fang takes a long walk on a short pier.

Seriously?
I looked forward to this book for months only to be surprisingly disappointed. The Moon Dance series had been a very interesting read but, I was extremely disappointed in the 4th book, Moon Child. It seemed the author droned on and on about the same thing. I feel the author could have summed up Samantha's decision in two chapters. Just as the story was starting to pick up, the book had ended.

Although I intend to read book five in the Moondance serious, I hope it is more interesting than book 4.

JR has quickly become one of my favorite authors! In this 4th installment of the Vampire for Hire series, he does not dissappoint! This is a great emotional rollercoster. I love Sam and how she tries to balance her "new" life with her "normal" life. I love the characters and way JR mixes up Sam's work life, home life and love life. Great read!

I read the first three books with great interest and totally enjoyed them all. Like others here, I couldn't wait for the next in the series. Wellll, now I'm not at all happy with what I waited for. I quit reading Patricia Cornwell because the main characters whined all the way through her books. In this one, JR Rain's Samantha goes on and on ad nauseum about her dilemma and frequently repeats it several times in the same paragraph! Yes, it's a tough situation for any parent but I read for pleasure, escape and, honestly, for ideas for my own writing. This book was a complete let down and I can't believe I actually stuck with it to the end. Sorry JR. No more of my truly hard earned bucks for you.
