Description

Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks, but then she gets a lead on a story that could salvage her extinct career. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a hot news tip, which she gets in the form of a major police cover-up...for a ring of soul-sucking vampires out to take over Seattle. So much for saving her credibility. And if that isn't bad enough, she gets talked into adopting a cat and finds she's allergic to it. A cat that turns out to be a shapeshifter who claims to be an immortal vampire slayer on the prowl for the same corrupt cops.

Her first thought: Seek professional help. But as Susan's drawn into Ravyn's dark and dangerous world, she comes to realize that there's a lot more at stake than just her defunct career. Now it's no longer a question of bringing the truth to her readers; it's a matter of saving their very lives and souls.

Ravyn's life was shattered over 400 years ago, when he mistakenly trusted the wrong human with the truth of his existence. He lost his family, his honor, and his life. Now, in order to save the people of Seattle, he's forced to confront that nightmare all over again and to trust another woman with the secret that could destroy him. In the world of the Dark-Hunters, life is always dangerous. But never more so than now, when a very human woman can shatter their entire world with just one story. The only question is...will she?

Great Book, only one nagging issue

What other book might you compare Dark Side of the Moon to and why?

Kiss of Night. This one deals with a lot of the deimon politics and underlying goings on.

What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

I am usually a huge Holter Graham fan, and I am giving him the benifit of the doubt that simply no one bothered to give him a pronunciation guide on the names. There is a character named Cael, pronouced KALE, but he pronounces it Kyle. This wouldn't be nearly as annoying if there weren't another character actually named KYLE in the book. It gets really irritating when you can't tell who is being referenced. I waited 10 years for this audiobook and its a more than a little irritating when you are dealing with a mythos as complex and involved as the Dark Hunter world.

Most disjointed reading ever

I love these books, however, Holter Graham cadence of speech is awful. It took me 2 hours to get used to his overly breathy and over enunciated reading. Seriously ruined the story.

Poor effort on the performance

I did not like the narrator, not even a little bit. The narration made it difficult to enjoy the story. The mispronunciation detracts from the story. Kyle/Kale, same person or new person? What is a Spothy?

Good story, voices are not so great

The story is good but the voices that the reader did don't go with the characters. malles Acheron who is suppose to be like 20ish when he died sound like an old man.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

I love this series and this book was of the same quality I have come to expect from Sherrilyn Kenyon, but with this narrator, it sounded like Beetlejuice was reading the book to me. I really didn't like the voices he used to try to make the men sound more masculine.

Still going strong!

Yes, the change in narrator made it a little more difficult to get into this book since Fred has really breathed life into the characters and world we've enjoyed listing too. Nothing against Holter Graham, he's actually a fabulous narrator, but his voices and pronounciation of names and other words were different in most cases making it hard to pick up where the last book left off. I caught myself correcting him out loud on a number of occasions.

With that said, I still enjoyed this story even thou this series is very cookie cutter. Troubled hunter meets girl who teaches him how to love again while the daemons cause trouble. Even so, I still enjoy these books. My heart goes out to Acheron, he has such a heavy burden to carry and always seems to get this sh*t end of the stick. Nick also has made a choice in anger and grief that will no doubt be his undoing. Looking forward to what happens next!

Other PRN books I think are fantastic are anything by Jeaniene Frost, Heather Hunter's Irin Chronicles (really beautifully written and narrated), Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardian Series, Jacqueline Frank's Nightwalker Series, Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter Series, J. D. Tyler's Alpha Pack Series and Tessa Dawn's Blood Curse series (very dark take on vampires). Patricia Brigg's Alpha and Omega series is really good too, thou more just paranormal than a PRN, romance is subtle but totally worth a listen unless you require steam. Most of these are available in the Romance Package which is a bonus if you like to binge.

Audio Reader

This book would have been fantastic if there was someone else anyone else that was reading. I drive quite a bit during the day and listen to audible while I ride around. While listening to this I was thinking that Google maps would honestly have more inflection in their voice. Mumbling hard to understand whiny Male voice when betraying beloved characters.

Great author - Worst narrator voice on Audible

Could NOT finish past the 5th chapter!
The narrators voice was just horrible! WAY TO BREATHY! Manages to make a breathy nasal voice a reality! I think he was attempting to sound sultry but FAILED at every sentence! He made this story so completely unable to finish!
I LOVE this series... rather irritating I will not get this story arc for the series due to his voice.
Can't believe I had to pay for that!

great book

Kenyon continues to add more to her already great dark hunter series. Lots of new characters but appearances of old.

Leider nein!

Der Sprecher ist Grauenhaft! Sehr Schade die anderen Bücher waren sehr gut gesprochen... Besonders die Acheron Stimme hat mich echt geärgert.
