What I love about L.M. Pruitt is that she just doesn't do "standard" paranormal plots. Her narrative is always a fresh perspective, and it will hold your attention until the last page. New Moon Rising was full of all those things I love: romance, mystery, paranormal activity and great story-telling.

In this book, we meet, Carolyn "Cari" Gravier, whom I could only describe as an "abrasive town hellion". It just seemed that she had more people who wanted to take her down a peg or two, than people who genuinely appreciated her. Her parents adored her and an ex-husband who couldn't seem to move on, but she just had a chip on her shoulder. When strange things started happening in their little town of Selene, like dead animals and people turning up ravaged by some kind of wild animal, Cari asked questions. The more she asked, the more vague answers she got. We were able to deduce that whatever was going on, the occurrences had a connection to Cari.

Then the unthinkable happens, her ex-husband Mike is forced to reveal to Cari the secrets that he had been keeping from her. After that, everything Cari thought she knew about herself, her parents and her hometown began to unravel. It devastated her to find out the depths of their deception and the fact it seemed that everyone (including her parents and her own best friend) knew, but didn't share the town secrets with her.

As the events unfolded, Cari showed a resolve and strength that it seems that people didn't think she was capable of. She assumed a leadership role and fought to protect her town instead of running away. Finally, Cari and Mike are able to come to an understanding about their past and arrive at a common ground. The ending was not a cliff hanger, but it definitely left room for a sequel (and I am crossing my fingers hoping for one).

I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and those who love a great storyline.

As a huge fan of L.M. Pruitt, I was not surprised I loved this book as much as I did her others. I could NOT put it down. I've never really been interested in werewolves other than as secondary characters in my favorite fantasy books. New Moon Rising HAS changed that. The story itself kept me enthralled, not once lacking in excitement or emotion. One thing I love about Pruitt's characters is I either want to hang out with them, Cari for example, or smack them, like Amelia. This is another series I eagerly await the next book in.

One thing I'm guaranteed when reading a book by L.M. Pruitt is that I'll get something dark, something juicy, and something completely engrossing. I loved her Jude Magdalyn series so when I was asked to review her new book, NEW MOON RISING, I jumped at the chance. This author has an amazing way with words for me, telling a story that pulls me in deep and by the end I was left wanting.. craving more.

Driving home one night, Cari is surprised by the sudden appearance of her friend Will, who is wide eyed and terrified, pounding on her car door to let him in. Repeating over and over "they're coming", the appearance of eyes in the dark completely freaks Cari out and sets the stage for a suspenseful and emotion packed story. Dead animals appear on her porch and her relentless ex-husband Mike seems to be everywhere she turns. People are turning up dead, mauled by what looks like animals and when it happens to her beloved parents, Cari demands answers. Something is happening in her town and regardless of past pain, she is adamant about getting to the bottom of it. What she doesn't expect is the answer she's given and how tightly the town's secrets wrap around her. Dealing with the death of her parents and coming to grips with a legacy she was unaware of, Cari finds herself once again in the company of Mike, who wants her back and grudgingly she admits to loving him still. Chemistry flames between them as she works through the painful reason for the divorce and begins opening her heart again. Problem is - are some betrayals too hard to forgive? Can love overcome any obstacle? And will the frightening menace and its supernatural nature destroy any hope of a future? Seriously, this is one heck of a story.

I really do not know how to put into words how much I loved this book by L.M. Pruitt. I loved all of her other books. I could not put this book down from the minute that I started reading it. L.M. Pruitt has a way of drawing you into to the story and having you wanting to stay there. I just loved the plot and the story line. There was so many emotions in every page of this book from first page to the last page. This book really brings out the emotions in you. I either wanted to cry or hit someone throughout the whole book.

Cari lives in a town where everyone is hiding something from her. She also still lives in the same town as her ex-husband Mike. When people in the town start getting murdered by wild dogs Cari starts getting suspicious about everyone. When she finds out the truth she is forced to make a choice that will change her life forever. Also it is hard for Cari living in a town where the people treat her as a little kid and also like she is stupid. When Cari's parents are murdered by the same wild dogs that changes the way that the town sees her. She grows up in their eyes overnight.

We follow Cari and her group of humans and werewolves through all kinds of twists and turns in this book. The four main characters are so well written that you forget that it is just a book. They turn into your friends and you find yourself hoping that everything works out for them and that they get a bit of happiness in their lives. It is heart breaking reading about when Cari lost her child. And also you feel such happiness and love when she describes the love between Cari and Mike, and that love can stand the turmoils of death and divorce.

Please do give this book a chance and you will not be disappointed. And do read the other great works of art by L.M.
