This is a well written story with none of the obvious spelling or other editing mistakes of many kindle books. However this is not a complete book. The story is of a man whose family have been killed by vampires and is now a vampire hunter. Initially he is on his own but very soon becomes part of a team. He ends up training with this group in a castle in Switzerland and then...

...well basically nothing because the story stops before anything really interesting happens. The background has been given but the plot basically stops with a now read on message.

I would strongly suggest that you do not pay for this book. As an appetizer it is alright but annoying and the last 3rd of the book is actually previews of other books. Personally I have never bought a sequel to books that end this abruptly, I want to learn whether the author is actually any good before investing my cash. This doesn't really do this. The set-up is ok but hardly original and there isn't enough of an ongoing story to tell whether the author can do character development, plot development or indeed anything much else.

I expected it to be in the same style of J R Rain and in that respect, was underwhelmed. However, the book has a good plot and Samantha Moon does make a cameo. I will buy the sequel.

JR Rain at his best yet again, well up to his usual standard, and a jolly good read. Well done

5.0 out of 5 stars It May Not Be Vampire for Hire But This Is VERY Good 26 April 2013
By Douglas C. Meeks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Even though JR Rain is not the author you can see his hand in it since he edited it a bit as he did it the other book he co-authored/edited with this lady Witchy Business (Witch Detectives #1) . It has the required revenge motive and a start where the hero has to learn the skills he needs to accomplish his mission (rather than POOF you are a hero).

This is a very good read and it is a incredible chance to get some quality reading. In case you have read the Vampire for Hire story where she leaves the guy on a ship at sea, this is the guy :) Don't pass this up this is great stuff BUT the reader should be aware, in the fashion of JR Rain, this appears to be a short novel, because this book ends at the 65% mark and everything past there is teasers for future books and other books. What it really means is that there is a LOT of stuff added after the book itself.

NOTE: It should be mentioned that you actually get more original story of Samantha Moon in this book than you do in the latest collection called Blue Moon: A Samantha Moon Story which was a pleasant surprise to me as a reader and I hope we see more in follow-up books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires and Vamp Hunters - Samantha Moon and Rand 28 April 2013
By Linda I Adams-Ackerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Burning, the first book in the Brotherhood of the Blade Trilogy, is based on characters created by J.R. Rain in his Samantha Moon: Vampire for Hire series. Ms. Paludan takes Randolf (Rand) Sebastian, a vampire hunter in the original Sam Moon books, and creates a situation where Rand is coerced into joining forces with his brother's ex-girlfriend to kill the vampire who killed Rudolf Sebastian, Rand's brother. Gabrielle DuBois, the ex-girlfriend and popular Torch Singer in one of the ship's lounges, is the leader of a band of vampire hunters who want Rand to join their team and use his special skills in finding and killing vampires. There are a lot of twists and turns in this book. The ending leaves me wanting more and eagerly waiting for the next book in the series. Burning (Brotherhood of the Blade Trilogy #1)
3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, sorry to say. 19 Feb. 2017
By jcat - Published on Amazon.com

First of all, it's short. The listed 174 pages included part of another book series, so it was nowhere near 174 pages. This book is apparently the first book in a trilogy. It did introduce characters and a basic storyline.

The World Building isn't much to rave about, because I still can't figure out how ordinary humans can manage to be effective Hunters of Vampires. If it's that easy, then Vamps should have faced extinction sooner. And unfortunately, the main character doesn't have much depth to him, so I didn't really care enough to get properly involved.

OK for a quick and easy read, I guess. I do have the second book, so I'll read it to see if things improve.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT START TO A TRILOGY 9 July 2014
By Bill Gutman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I think of vampires, I picture Bela Lugosi portraying Dracula with that wonderful accent of his in movies older than I'd like to imagine. So when I began reading Eve Paludan's Burning, the first book in the Brotherhood of the Blade trilogy, I wasn't sure what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. I found a sharply-written, fast-moving read with a well-defined hero to root for, and vampires that were both harrowing and human at the same time. The book is full of action, snappy dialogue and introduces both good and evil vampires. Bela Lugosi wouldn't have survived in Eve Paludan's world. My only regret is that Burning is part one of a trilogy and I was left hanging. So it's on to the next two.
