Running for his life because fellow vampires have labeled him defective after being shot in the head at point blank range, Harley Scott ends up on the far side of Canada. Who knew a vampire could survive a head injury though it has severely dampened his senses, strength, and desire to feed which is why he’s barely healing.
It is the help of strangers, human strangers, that save Harley from the Eliminators and Harley meets Matt Rush who invites the weakened vampire to his home. There’s something different about Matt that interests Harley, which calls to him with comfort and need. Harley doesn’t yet realize it but his undead life is about to change forever.
Dark of the Moon is a skillful blend of drama and heart, with a carefully constructed character driven flavor as well. Harley is a scrappy survivor, kind of cranky which is understandable since no one is at their best when ill. His lover Matt is simply scrumptious. Author Laura Baumbach knows exactly how to bring characters to life and Dark of the Moon is no exception. My only complaint is that it ended.
