"Dark of the Moon" is the second installment of Susan Krinard's Vampire/Werewolf trilogy. This hard-hitting and gritty story was filled with romance, danger, and mystery from cover to cover!

Based in the roaring twenties, the story picks up at the end of book one, and details the now former vampire enforcer Dorian Black trying to fight his personal demons and find peace after the life he had led. One night he meets aspiring news reporter Gwen Murphy while she is investigating mysterious deaths i

I don't usually say this about most books, but until the story picked up towards the end, I was left with a 'meh' feeling. It was good, but I could put it down and not think about it at all even though the small twists were good. I did like how the term vampire didn't show up too often except with the humans while they themselves called themselves 'strigoi.'

I didn't understand the whole gang thing :S Some parts dragged on for too long, causing me to skip a lot. I also found Gwen a bit annoying, and Dorian's character wasn't consistent. Some parts weren't explained well, and others were explained in extreme detail, so the story felt a bit 'meh'. Overall is was a bit confusing and I couldn't get through it :S Stopped reading after chapter 5
Paranormal Romance
On the hunt for the story left behind when her father died, the heroine finds herself saved by ruffians by a very tortured and somber soul. Down on his luck and living in a warehouse by the waterfront, the heroine can see painful memories in those gray eyes of his and feels an instant connection to the stranger. He is quiet, reserved but very intelligent and speaks in a way that shows he’s well educated. Though he tells her to leave him alone, to void any debt she may imagine she owes him- she’s ...more

Cuando inicio el libro tiene un buen ritmo en las primeras páginas y capítulos que hacen que me llame la atención y me pregunte por personajes del libro anterior.
Pero todo eso cambia entre más avanzo en el libro, los puntos malos que encuentro son sobre todo sobre la protagonista, en un principio no me quejo de sus actitudes ni nada pero a medida que avanzo en los capítulos llego a odiarla por ser tan tonta, patética (en cierta forma) e ilusa, simplemente no podía soportar eso, por que prim

Set in NYC in the 1920s, Gwen Murphy, works to establish herself as one of the first female reporters in the cutthroat newspaper business. She's working a story about a cult of blood drinkers haunting local docks and warehouses. Getting to the "heart" of the matter involves Gwen restoring the reputation of her deceased father who fell from grace as a newspaper reporter following the same story. She also encounters a dark, mysterious man Dorian Gray who can help her navigate the territory of vamp ...more
It's a great premise--vampires in 1920s New York--but Krinard got a bit lost in the telling, adding too many characters and too many twists until the reader is forced to lose interest in either halfway through. To Krinard's credit, though, the premise is far more interesting than most of the paranormal romances on the market now and should be carried through in a series, although with far fewer characters and plot cliches.

Fizzled about 1/4 before the end. Just wasn't going anywhere... so I moved on.
Didn't particularly like the authors style of writing.

Didn't like the writing style at all. I didn't even manage to read the first hundred of pages.

The book was okay it did drag alot. The relationship between Dorian and Gwen happens way to fast. Their relationship was difficult and never coming together until the last five pages.
