This was my 2nd Amanda Ashley book. The first was such a disappointment, I almost didn't read this book, but I had purchased them at the same time. Sunlight seemed heavily borrowed from Starman (movie and TV series), thus lacking much in the way of originality. Lainey didn't impress me, and, while I did rather like Michah, I couldn't get engaged in the plot (which included a rather bizarre evil scientist, and characters that didn't really 'fit'.) I ended up skipping to the end without feeling I missed much in the middle. Moonlight, on the the other, started off quite well - the birthing of the vampire was novel to me. 2000 years later, however, the contemporary story was rather pedestrian, mared by Andrianne naivete, and Navarre's goodness. (None of the torment of Buffy's Angel, for example) I did, however manage to read this through.
