VAMPIRE DREAMS (A Samantha Moon Short Story) by J.R.Rain
BOOK BLURB: Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.
Samantha Moon is a mother, an agent and a vampire, but not a vampire by choice. Over the previous several days, Samantha is besieged with a nightmare showing a young human woman obliterated by a city bus. Usually nightmares and dreams are just that, but Samantha has a gift of ESP, and she believes she is actually seeing the future. Although nothing about the woman is familiar, she will soon discover the place and time will be closer than she thought.
Samantha would soon recognize a young woman sitting on a bench waiting for a bus. Hoping to stop a disaster from happening, Samantha tries in vain to ‘push’ the young woman into moving. Thinking Samantha is crazy lady, the potential victim of the accident blows Sam off. When the nightmare never occurs, Sam will soon realize she is at the wrong stop. Hoping to save the other woman, Sam takes off but knows she will never make it on time. But no sooner is she heading to the other stop, does something strange and overwhelming happen-she finds herself flying to her destination and has no idea what has happened.
VAMPIRE DREAMS is a very short story, approximately 19 pages, in J.R.Rain’s Samantha Moon series. Although it is an intriguing novella released on September 17, 2012, it isn’t necessarily worth $1.99. In June 2012 the author released SAMANTHA MOON: THE FIRST FOUR VAMPIRE FOR HIRE NOVELS anthology which includes Vampire Dreams. If you are interested, I would suggest this particular anthology as it includes the first 4 Samantha Moon novels and a couple of short stories.
