review 1: I know what this book was trying to do, I wanted to like this, but I just didn't. I really love Scott Nicholson as an author but I just did not find this funny. This may well just be me, as a rule I don't find things funny that are supposed to be funny (if you know what I mean). ...

review 1: I've only read J.R. Rain's Jim Knighthorse series, so I wasn't sure what to expect here. Here we have another Jim, who's also a PI. There the similarities end. Jimmy Booker is dying, past dying actually, and he's brought one final case to work on before he goes into that bright l...

review 1: I thoroughly enjoyed 'Rainy Nights'. Each novel brings you into three different stories yet intertwine with each other throughout each series.'Moon Dance' is book one from the series 'A Vampire For Hire'. I loved the storyline and it's not your average vampire read. I was pulled ...

review 1: 'A Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo' is not what I expected, it was better. I loved the storyline and how Spinoza's character completely took me by surprise. I kind of expected him to be a little more passive, yet, you get in his way when he's on a case and he breaks out his inner ...

review 1: I am not much a fan of vampire fiction.. It's not that I hate it.. mostly I feel they don't do justice to the characters or they don't develop them enough to give them individuality to separate themselves from the cliche of vampire fiction...But this book clearly exceeded expec...

review 1: 'Vampire Dawn' turned out to be another great book in this series from the talented J.R. Rain. The storyline was exciting, thrilling, full of action and full of humor. I love Samantha's sense of humor. She keeps honing her skills and becomes more bad-ass in each book. The way thi...

review 1: Finally a Vampire mystery series! Sam Moon is a P.I. Ever since she became a vampire 6 years ago. She was a federal agent but she couldn't stay out in the daylight...although I have to say she is out during the day quite a bit with her super powered sunscreen, gloves and big fl...

review 1: I enjoyed this book, it was an easy read, but predictable in places perhaps. There are three cases running side by side through the book, and although it's a fairly short read they all get resolved. It's odd that Knighthorse comes along and solves a 100 year old mystery in a ma...

review 1: I have enjoyed nearly every one of Rain's stories that I have read and this one was no exception. Jim Knighthorse, a former rising star in football is sidelined by a terrible injury and goes on to become a private investigator.He is hired to find an animal rights activist who ha...

review 1: An intriguing plot, fairly well written, pacey and with sprinkling of humour amongst the action, and all set in a stunning location. Sounds like it all should add up to a very good book, right? Well I did enjoy it but it's a bit cliche-ridden, and the events that unfold just get ...

review 1: Too short. As with most of Rain's books, I wanted more. Since this isn't a subject (vampires)I usually choose to read about, those two sentences are a big compliment to the author. It was actually a compliment to his work that I downloaded it at all. I am a major fan, and have su...

review 1: 'Moon River' grabbed me from the beginning and did not let go, just like the other books in this series. I loved how this storyline played out. Full of thrilling scenes, action, suspense and humor. The characters were great. This series keeps getting better. I love how so many be...

review 1: Well, this is one of those books that had many 5-star and relatively minimal critical, so I went ahead and borrowed it through the KLL.The premise of the book is what gets some stars; the writing and the actual story get no stars from me. Very abrupt. Fragmented style. Kinda. Wor...

review 1: I enjoy the Knighthorse series. However, this one had some animal cruelty that I found both disturbing and heart-breaking. Disturbing because it was probably, at least partially, taken from actual events. It was heart-breaking for the same reason. It also make me laugh and cr...

review 1: A short Samantha Moon story. A nice addition to a series I enjoy. Took so long cause I started it late the night before I worked the elections and didn't get a chance to read at all the next day. There isn't much humor in this story like in many of his other stories, but then a...

review 1: Interesting take on the zombie apocalypse. This is the first book in a trilogy. The authors take their time setting everything up. We get to know the characters, which is good. The story has some aspects that may make a ZBook lover cringe. I won't go into detail though. I do not ...
