review by SusanAshlea

*Warning: possible spoilers ahead.*

Angel of Vengeance is the never before published novel that inspired the TV Series, Moonlight, featuring Alex O’Laughlin (side note: yum). As a huge fan of this series, I jumped at the chance to read and review this book. I wasn’t sure what to expect, as we all know that adaptations can be…less than expected. What I discovered was an intelligently written detective novel .

From the first page, I was sucked into the narrative of Mick Angel, a...more

A book about Mick from the CBS series Moonlight? Hell yes, I had to read this one. Angel of Vengeance is not really like a tv series but not only because of the different story. The whole feel of the setting and characters is much darker- I, with my humble genre knowledge, would say it's a noir story.

We find ourself in Mick Angel's POV from the first page. He is in essence the same guy from the series but he doesn't feel like it. He's darker, moodier and not at all as nice and good as this guy....more

This book was FANGTASTIC!!

Finally! Something that is so awesome I want to sick my teeth so deeply into it that I come back with a fang missing just because I just didn't want to give it up.

You don't have to be a Moonlight Fan to enjoy this story. No sir re bobby! You don't even need to know what Moonlight is to enjoy it. It explains everything perfectly.

While this book is based on the series it was actually written before the series and just recently published.

Like all books and shows they both...more

It's good and well-written, but this is a very different Mick; much darker, pre- adult Beth (I can't see Beth falling in love with him to be honest) and with a different backstory in some particulars. His turning by Coraline, for instance, isn't the same and Coraline is a stone-cold monster also with a different backstory.

I don't know when the book was written but I can see why they made the changes they did for the show; no one could've really liked this Mick very much. He has flashes of herois...more

Any vampire fan worth their salt has heard of or watched the short-lived 2006 CBS series Moonlight. This show was created by Trevor Munson and centered around a Private Eye named Mick St John and his love interest, Beth. What few people knew was that this story actually began as a novel about Mick Angel.

This novel is set in the dirty, drug-infested underground of LA. We meet Mick Angel who is a self confessed Heroin addict turned vampire. He is also a private eye who's been hired to find the run...more

I didn't like vampires ever. Never. Absolutely not. Ok, if you want to know the truth I didn't like detectives more than vampires. I wasn't really interesting in artful designes of criminal's sick mind. I've never read detectives, 'cause I was pretty sure to find there art sence impossible.



But that night I've got a novel “Angel of Vengeance”, became especial. That night was marvelous. It has changed me and my attitude to detectives.

"ANGEL OF VENGEANCE", BY MR. TREVOR MUNSON, IS AN EXCELLENT READ. FROM PAGE ONE YOU ARE HOOKED INTO MICK ANGEL'S STORY..I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN. ALTHOUGH,A VAMPIRE STORY, IT IS ALSO A MYSTERY, THRILLER, THAT I COULD NOT READ FAST ENOUGH TO FIND OUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN ON THE NEXT PAGE...THE END OF THIS BOOK IS JUST THE START OF THE STORY, AND I HOPE PART TWO WILL BE RELEASE VERY SOON...I CAN'T WAIT TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS WITH MICK ANGEL..I HAVE READ "ANGEL OF VENGEANCE" TWICE MORE AND ENJ...more

As a diehard Moonlight fan who was very disappointed and angry with CBS for their short sighted decision to end the series, I can't wait to read this book. I am eager for Mick to live on even if only between the pages of a book.

As a fan of the CBS TV series “Moonlight” I was very excited to read Trevor Munson's “Angel of Vengeance”, the novel that inspired the series. I'm pleased to report that the novel was a thoroughly enjoyable read. And that's coming from someone with no previous experience reading “noir” stories. The story's atmosphere is palpable, almost a character itself. You're sucked into a dark and seedy world populated by criminals, cops, strippers, prostitutes and, of course, vampires. The way Munson descr...more

Blew threw this book in a matter of hours. Simply could not put it down.

This novel is the inspiration for what eventually became the short lived tv series, 'Moonlight'. I've not yet seen the show, so I can't make a comparison of the two, but a friend who has read the book and seen the show tells me that the book is much darker than the series.

This book reads like a pulp detective novel whose lead protagonist just happens to be a vampire. It's a combination that sounds like it shouldn't work all...more

Angel Of Vengeance is The Bestest Novel Book that Inspired the TV Show Moonlight but the Story in the book and the Story in the Moonlight Show are both totally different from each other because the story in the book is more in the darker side,hard-boiled,thrilling,wild,sexy,funny,pulp,bloodly actions and excitement in it. Myself sort of picture or imagines the story in the book seems more like the characters are of the in 80's and or in Classic style type clothing but with today's up to date stu...more

As a huge fan of Moonlight the series i could not wait for the release of Trevor Munsons book as all Moonlight fans crave more Moonlight, but having heard that it was much darker than Moonlight i didnt expect to see a rewrite of the show and wanted to see what trevors darker film noire story would be like and was not disapointed it is a gritty story and it screams old black and white films like the mateese falcon but be warned it is not the gentle lovestory Moonlight was. Coraline had some redee...more

"Blutige Nacht" (Angel Of Vengeance), written by Trevor O. Munson, inspired the American TV series "Moonlight". Even though I'm a native German girl I prefer to read the original versions, but in this case I couldn't wait to finally get my hands on "Blutige Nacht".
The translation is pretty well and you don't get the feeling that there's something missing from the original version.

While most "Moonlight" fans prefer the more softer Mick (St. John), played by the very talented Alex O'Loughlin, I pe...more

My life has been busy such that it's been hard to find time to read. So when I started reading this book and finished in 3 days it made me happy that it kept my interest and attention. I didn't want to put it down.
It is darker than the TV series and for TV, yes the changes made sense. This is a different Mick, so don't expect it to be the same. Though the character is still likable. The backstory of all the main characters is different as well.
The story as written is not drawn out reading, st...more

I loved it!!! I am a big fan of Moonlight and even though there are not a lot of similarities between AOV and Moonlight - there were enough for me to imagine Alex O'Loughlin's voice over and his face. It was a lot darker than Moonlight which I loved. I read it in a matter of hours and was left wanting more so I for one am hoping Trevor will write a few more sequels:)

The best book about vampires!

I was a big fan of the TV Show Moonlight when it was on CBS, so much so that I remained affiliated with several online email groups and Facebook groups after the show was cancelled--just to keep apprised of any further developments. Back when the show was on, the show's creator had posted several of the first chapters of the book up on his webpage. I had read them way back then and really, really enjoyed them. I was very excited to hear that this novel was being punished and I'd finally get to f...more

I think most people come across this book because it was the inspiration behind the TV series Moonlight. I certainly fall into that category. I loved the show, and when I found out there was a book, I had to have it. I had heard that it was very different from the show, but I didn't care. I'm a die-hard fan of vampire literature, and I'm usually pretty good about regarding derivative works as separate entities. "Different" was an understatement. But I still enjoyed it as a separate, and therefor...more

"Angel of Vengeance" is as every bit as good as the reviews I read of it promised. It's a gritty, fast-paced novel that works both as a hard-boiled detective story and a horror novel. For those who don't know, this is the book that inspired the CBS series "Moonlight". However, this is a different and darker Mick than that depicted in the series. If you're only looking for a soft, fluffy continuation of the show, this isn't the book for you. But if you're the kind of person who's open to a darker...more

I loved "Angel of Vengeance". I loved the tv series Moonlight and Trevor Munson inspired it with this book. I enjoy reading SciFi books but mostly vampires. I really like the way he portrayed Mick Angel(the main character)in this book. It is darker than the series but it has the added depth of the Private Eye that I liked in the tv series. Trevor Munson is very talented and writes a good mystery with plenty of twists in it. I truly hope he continues the Angel series. I will certainly buy and rea...more

This book was written and evolved into the tv show Moonlight before it was published. It's a much darker and edgier Mick then we saw in the tv show. Every time I picked up this book I could not put it down. It took two of my favorites, vampires and mysteries, and combined them into one very riveting and easy to read book. It kept my interest from start to finish. As much as I loved the tv show, I really wish it would have been more like this book, darker and grittier with an even more flawed Mic...more

Wow finally a more mature take on vampire stories amongst all the (pre)teen novels. I love the dark side of Mick Angel which makes it seem that being a vampire is much more like being a drug addict rather than a romantic thing. A well put together story of a P.I who happens to be a vampire and all the blood thirst and decay that comes with it. I really recommend reading it, whether you've watched Moonlight or not, it's an absolutely fresh take on the over romanticized vampire stories floating ar...more

This book was a welcome relief to my Moonlight withdrawals. It was a lot darker and grittier than the TV show, but I liked that. It brought a different perspective to vampires. Usually, lead vampires are portrayed as tortured, mysterious, kind, and an object of desire. I like how this book blurred the vampire lines and had a lead vampire who does what is necessary and is neither completely good nor completely evil. I'm waiting on the edge of my seat for the sequel. I would recommend this book to...more

Much different vibe than the TV series Moonlight. Quite a bit darker, but I still enjoyed the story. Mick isn't as nice in this one. He does many things that TV Mick would not approve of. I really liked the story of Vampire Mick, but I much preferred the TV version of the Human Mick story. All in all, a good, entertaining, fast read!

Since I am a fan of the Canceled tv series Moonlight, I love this book, it showed a darker side of Mick that we never got to see on the tv series and when I read about some of the things that he did in the book that never happened in the show I was surprised that mick did such things ,for example, he did drugs in the book which didn't seem like what mick would do on the tv show another thing was getting lap dances from strippers the mick on tv would have turned them away. A couple of of things t...more

I've always known that adapting a book to television or movies means big changes, no matter how well the book is written. I'm not sure why these changes have to happen because odd are that fans will like the book better. At least that's my experience and Angel of Vengeance was no exception. Moonlight was a good show (so don't start cursing me or writing nasty emails) but I prefer the grittier, decidedly darker Mick Angel over the softer, gentler TV version.

The noir vibe really worked for this bo...more
