I enjoy J.R. Rain's stories. But it felt like this book was just an ad for other stories. It took only a couple of hours to read this. For the price, that feels like a rip off. I checked the download size of the file. It was about 1/2 to 2/3 of the size of other books I read. When I came to the end, I was only 2/3s of the way through the download. The rest was excerpts from other books. Then when you add in that he included the Christmas story, the actual Vampire Dawn had little content. I enjoyed the story, but again, felt ripped off. This should have been a $.99 download for what was there.

With such a long awaited arrival for Vampire Dawn, I snatched it up as soon as it was available. After waiting so long for it to come out and paying the full $3.99 for it, boy was I disappointed to see how short it was. I read it in just a couple of hours. Although it was nice of the author to include Christmas Moon, most of us dedicated fans have already paid for that and read it months ago, so I feel kinda shorted there too. So instead of 5 stars, I have to give 4 for this one. But I do love Samantha Moon and I do love JR's writing style, which probably makes the disappointment hurt more than it normally would. We need more!!

I rarely have to put down a book because I simply can't deal with it any longer. I LOVED Rain's first 3 books, I really did. I found her premise to be unique and original. And, to be fair, the fourth was far from my favorite, but it was tolerable, I've read a lot worse. However, in the fifth book, it seems to me that Rain has gotten lazy. I don't want to include any spoilers, such that I have because I didn't finish the book. But I will say that if you want to write about Vampires, accept that usually includes some built in limitations for your characters. Or, if an author wishes to "push the envelope" and break away from the more mainstream constants, i.e, sunlight, silver, etc., by all means go for it, but use creativity. Using shortcuts like rare magical medallions that just keep cropping up handily for your main character, leave me feeling cheated. This series has so much promise, I'd highly recommend the earlier ones to readers, but my discontent began in the fourth series, and unfortunately, Rain did nothing in the fifth book to dispel those feelings.

I love the Samantha Moon books. I don't mind that they are short stories. I do mind that 35% of the book is parts of other books. One of the 1st things I do when I get interested in a book, is look to see how long the book is. In this case it says 4530 ( location count). Yet the story itself is done at only 2978.
So I am giving the book only 4 stars for not forfilling my expectations in length.

Now that Samantha has officially turned into a "Mary Sue" what can we expect her to pull out of her hat next? Eating real food? Something a little more crazy to help her solve the next case? Some new otherworldly creature to show up and prove what a wonderful thing she has going? Perhaps a reincarnation of the Dali Lama will show up next? Maybe God? All she had to do was to have faith and she could live in the sun? Why does that sound like a fairy tale to me. All you need is to believe.

I did find what was going on with her son to be very interesting and it is a story line I would like to see completely played out, but that is not enough for me to keep going with this series. Book by book things are getting out of hand and I see the author walking into the abyss like Laurell K Hamilton did.

So many people had complaints as to how short the book was---I did not. Had it been any longer I would have been compelled to not finish it since it really stretched the idea of "suspending disbelief". I so loved the first few books since Samantha at the time was still a flawed creature trying to find her way in this new world she found herself in. Now, not so much. *sigh*

Vampire Dawn is another fun entry into the world of Samantha Moon, mother and private detective but it's very VERY short. Despite its brevity, Rain packs a good amount of story into this one. Not only is Samantha's humanity more rapidly slipping away but she's also noticing that the aid she gave to her son last year is changing him in ways she's not sure how to handle. He's getting stronger and faster, healing more quickly. Is he becoming what she hates most about herself?

The meat of the story, or the main case, revolves around a series of serial murders and disappearances. People have been disappearing and found in the mountains drained of blood. Samantha helps Detective Sherbet in finding the culprit behind the brutal murders. What's probably more interesting than the actual case is how the supporting characters are tied and affected by their involvement. Sherbet is closely tied to Samantha now and is now getting to know what it's like to be in her head. Literally. Samantha is a psychic supernatural creature of the night and Sherbet finds out the hard way what it's like to be so close to her. In addition, the case of the disappearing/bloodless victims sheds some new light on Detective Hanner.

Not one to fear changing the status quo, JR Rain throws another loop into Samantha's life in the form of the emerald amulet she found in Christmas Moon. What are it's powers and how will they change Samantha going forward?

My one real knock on the story is how short it is. By the time I hit 65% completed on my kindle it was over. I was hoping some more time would have been spent on Samantha's only other vampire companion, Detective Hanner as well as an appearance from her guardian angel that showed up in Christmas Moon.
