About the Author
Though born in Mesa, Arizona, Sean has spent most of his life in Missouri. After college, Sean went into social and investigative work, primarily with disabled adults and seniors. Sean’s background in sociology, criminology, and philosophy and his experience as an investigator for the State of Missouri, are heavy influences in his writing. While Sean has been writing most of his life, he did not consider doing so professionally until he was inspired by a terrible vampire movie. During the film, Sean amused himself by imagining the vampires being attacked by a dragon. His imagination resulted in his series, The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles, featuring dragons and vampires. Sean enjoys watching and reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, and thrillers. His hobbies include playing Xbox, fantasy role playing games and collecting firearms. Moth is Book 1 of The Max Hollingsworth Paranormal Mysteries. Sean’s other books include The Shadow of Tiamat and The Will of the Darkest One, both from The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles.

I had a little bit of trouble caring about the deep history flashbacks, but otherwise, I was glued to every paragraph, and will definitely be watching for the next Max Hollingsworth mystery.
The writing is smooth, the narrative always in character, and I enjoyed Max's relationships with his empath girlfriend, Sadie, his co-workers, and his friends. One of my favorite lines went something like, "Yeah, but wouldn't it be nice if we could just be normal? Or at least normal-er?"
Horror, humor, sex, vigilante justice - it's all here. I do recommend.
Max and Sadie's relationship is quite a complex one at that. She can't help but hate him for being obsessive but still with him. Quite a complex relationship. So many details to them alone.
The main characters in this dark paranormal is vampires and yes they are quite evil in this book. Not a hint of glitter in sight.
This novel is quite impressive. It contains, everything nightmares are made of literally. I can't even explain how deep this book is lol. I am quite impressed with how well written is was with such sensitive topics. I've never read anything by Sean Poindexter before but I will certainly look for more books by him if he can be so gritty and in depth.
I have to say I love this cover. It's so befitting of this novel. Highly recommend if you want a raw Vampire paranormal with tons of depth to it where just get sucked into the story until you can't breathe to find your way out at the end. Many thanks for the chance to review this!
Max Hollingsworth is a social worker who specializes with abused children. Not the most pleasant of subjects, but Sean Poindexter handles it well. We all know it happens, but not many authors are brave enough to approach the subject in a novel like this one. Those who’ve tried haven’t always come across as well as this author did. He was able to make me feel for the lost children without completely disgusting me, taking a risk I might toss the book. Being a mother, and grandmother, I couldn’t imagine my own being placed in the hands of a pedophile.
Max not only has to deal with human monsters, some of them the children’s own parents, he also has to deal with a gang of neo-nazi vampires running a child slavery ring. Somehow these vampires are able to make parents completely forget they even have a child. It can be difficult to prosecute if no one remembers the child even exists.
I loved the story and what Max was willing to put himself through to try to help these kids. The only reason I’m not giving it five stars is because of the side stories. They could be a little difficult to follow as far as time was concerned. It was necessary information for the most part, but I still found it hard to realign my thoughts at times.
Bottom line, if you like detective type stories with a little paranormal edge, then I can pretty much guarantee you’ll enjoy this one. I can’t wait for the next novel in this series to be released.
Sean Poindexter is a new to me author. I will definitely be reading more from him as I thoroughly enjoyed Max Hollingsworth and his shenanigans. He's an awesome character that is a bad a$$ that doesn't take crap from anyone, whether they are human, vampire, or other paranormal being. He just wants to help the kids in his crappy city and he won't let a little thing like the paranormal world get in his way.
I loved the blending of this character's world and the real world. The descriptions in the book were so vivid but not overly metaphorical. I didn't so much as read this story as devour it. It was such a great read that it didn't feel like a chore or a job or something I had to do. It was an easy read in that I was attached to the pages and couldn't tear myself away. The subject matter, child trafficking, is not an easy subject to write about but I think the Sean did a great job with this topic and didn't take it over the top. I highly recommend this story and will definitely be adding Sean to my list of favorite authors.
