"A real page turner. Great world building"

On an alternate earth, werewolves live on reservations and for the most part receive the same respect as human beings. They have strict birth control methods so they don't overwhelm the human population and different packs live in the same area. On the Ripple Creek Reservation, the Golden pack is more traditional believing that one's morals prevent a mating until the true soul mate is found. The Silver pack holds that free mating is necessary and hosts wild parties at the mansion the week before the full moon.

This month, Neva Grant of the Golden pack is at the mansion to infiltrate the Sinclair pack because several women were attacked and killed except for her twin sister Savannah who nearly died. She seduces Duncan, the wildest one of the bunch, and he claims her, through magic for the rest of the week. He too is looking for the murderer and thinks Neva might be a link to the culprit. By the time these two lovers have sorted things, Neva is attacked and Duncan kidnapped by two werewolves with hidden agendas.

Fans of Laurell Hamilton and Charlaine Harris are going to love this werewolf series. Keri Arthur creates a whole culture out of the werewolf mythos and makes the reader believe in the species because of her intricate plotting. The werewolves police themselves by the rangers who are part of their society, a situation very similar to Native Americans living on the reservation. BENEATH A RISING MOON is howling good fun.

On the werewolf reservation of Ripple Creek, a killer is on the loose. Three women are dead, their bodies mutilated and faces slashed. A fourth, Neva Grant's twin, lies in the hospital, fighting for her life.

Psychically linked, Neva shared the horror of her twin attack and makes a silent vow by her sister's hospital bed. She'll hunt down the killer, if Savannah finds the strength to live.

The Rangers believe the killer is a member of the Sinclair pack, but Neva knows the Sinclairs will never talk to an outsider. To begin the hunt, she first has to seduce a Sinclair -- and then she has to keep him interested long enough to find the killer. The only Sinclair not under suspicion is a wolf with a hard drinking, hard loving reputation. But has she got what it takes to attract a man with such experience? Neva doesn't know, but for her sister's sake, she has to try.

Duncan Sinclair has been called back home to find a killer, and he wants nothing more than to complete his task and get out of the town for which he has no love. Then he's approached by a wolf who obviously has more than seduction on her mind, and he finds himself ensnared in a growing web of desire and deceit.

As the murders continue and the killer's shadow draws ever closer, Duncan and Neva find themselves having to trust each other in order to survive. But can they trust the emotions flaring between them? Or will the lies of the present, the deeds of the past, and a killer's bloody intentions tear them apart?
