Dark Side of the Moon

I liked the premise of the book because there is something about a vampire receiving the kind of injury Harley suffered and have it affect his senses to the degree it has is very appealing.

Aside from that, I have mixed feelings about the story for a few reasons.

First, the length. The story is well told and covers all the bases in the page length that it does. That works for me as far as it goes. Having said that, the timeline is about 36 to 48 hours (if I read it correctly), and the timeframe does not work for me.

Next, the setup. I liked how Harley and Matt met through the machinations of Matt's mother and uncle. But, I would have liked to see more of a story of how they met, what comes next, etc.

Finally, the overall story. Well told over the short format and I liked reading it. However, as said in the paragraph about setup, I would have liked to see more of it. The story, while liking what there was of it, seemed pared down to the bare bones of what was needed and that was it. I would have liked to see more of how Harley's and Matt's relationship develops, the dynamics within the pack, what the pack thinks of Harley, etc.

Good read, but wished there was more of it.


Book Blurb for Dark Side of the Moon

Recovering from a near fatal injury, vampire Harley Scott just wants some peace, quiet and a long night filled with darkness. The wilds of icy Canada sounds like the best place to make that happen-- if he can make it past blizzards, werewolves, and -- oh, yeah, a death squad of fellow vampires on his trail.
