Format: Paperback
Neva Grant, a werewolf of the golden fur pack would never, on a normal occasion, be caught seen at the Sinclair's mansion participating in the moon dance. That is because her pack is known for their almost strict lifestyles, with a heavy emphasis on correct morals. Neva's pack looks down on the silver-haired Sinclairs, who are notorious for their drinking, taking more than one mate, and of course hosting the moon dance where everyone completely throws away their inhibitions.

However, Neva has a reason for being at the Sinclair's mansion this night: there is a killer on the loose, who has already killed three women and left Neva's twin Savannah in the hospital. At every scene of attack, the killer has left silver hairs, which makes the rangers believe that it is one of the Sinclairs doing the killing. The only person Neva and her sister know for sure is not the killer is Duncan Sinclair, a son of the leader of Ripple Creek's Sinclairs. Neva will do anything for her sister, so she attempts to seduce Duncan in order to gain access into the Sinclair mansion. On the night of the moon dance, she links herself to Duncan for the remainder of the moon phase.

In Arthur's world of werewolves, each is subject to the call of the moon, which heats the werewolves blood and fills them with the need to mate. The moon also has a hold over the females, who, once they agree to be a male's mate for the moon phase, can be forced by the male and the moon's power to honor this agreement. When Duncan realizes her reason for becoming his mate, he decides to push and push at her until she goes running back to (as he believes) the person who hired her to snoop around. He embarasses her in front of her parents, who are very old-fashioned, and leaves them not on speaking terms.

For Neva changing into a wolf is who she is. She is also a woman bent on trying to track down the wolf that tried to kill her twin sister. And to do so, she bonds for the duration of the moon dance with Duncan Sinclair; the long absent son of the family that throws the moon dances where her sister was attacked. However, Neva quickly looses control of the situation as Duncan is trying to solve the same mystery, because in addition to Neva's sister's attack, several women were killed.
Wow - so I've never read a werewolf novel like this. I think I've always had the misconception that werewolves were humans that turned during the three days surrounding a full moon and where discontent with the existence because they turned into mindless killers. (TV I guess...) Keri Arthur has woven together a very sensual love story with a well-written mystery.
In a Colorado that has accepted the paranormal, the moon dance will have you rethinking the term casual sex. While Neva and Duncan have a mystery that threatens more than the women attending the nightly dance, the focus of the book is trusting your heart, rather than just what you know as fact. Duncan was a playboy in every way. Can he reform or more to the point, has he reformed so that he could be happy with only one mate? Neva represents tradition where although she believes in a life mate, fears breaking the mold set by her parents.
This is a fabulous story that will accelerate your heartbeat both from the characters radiating sensuality and the mystery surrounding Duncan's family. I was worried that the book would be too scary for me (I'm a wimp). I was amazed that while it is a mystery, I wasn't traumatized as a reader so this was awesome! BENEATH A RISING MOON is a werewolf novel you won't want to miss! I hope Ms Arthur writes the story of Neva's sister, Savannah.

Format: Paperback
Keri Arthur once again creates a believable alternate reality in which the paranormal exist among us. In this first of the Ripple Creek novels, Neva Grant, a golden werewolf with psychic powers, investigates the assault of her twin sister Savannah. Savannah is a ranger on the werewolf reservation and was attacked by a silver werewolf while investigating a series of murders. Neva infiltrates the stronghold of the silver werewolves and becomes involves with one of them to further her investigation. It quickly becomes apparent that both she and Duncan are in danger from the murderer.
Ms. Arthur has created a werewolf society similar to, but very different from out own. The characters of Neva and Duncan are very well drawn and the romance elements very good. The mystery is interesting. I can't wait for the sequel.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book for my Kindle in exchange for my honest opinion.
With the Riley Jensen series ending, I was excited to see a "new" series from Keri Arthur. The problem: it's NOT a new series. "Beneath a Rising Moon" and "Beneath a Darkening Moon" (Savannah's story) were both published in 2003/2004. It annoys me that this information isn't easy to discover in the product description from the publisher.
However, the fact it's not a "new" book doesn't change how great it is. A synopsis of the story can be found on the product detail and in other reviews so I'm not going to repeat it. I'll just say I love Keri Arthur. Her stories are interesting, fun, and sexy. This book is no different. There is language, supernatural themes, and HOT sex. If those types of stories aren't your thing, don't read the book. Yes, there's a submissive/dominant storyline but they are WEREWOLVES. The writing style is very readable and there are few (if any) typos, errors, etc. A great book.
