Review from Blkosiner's Book BLog

I enjoyed Red Moon Rising. It was refreshing to read a book from male POV, as this doesn't happen a lot in YA.
I liked Danny and his friendship with Claire. It was nice to see a LGBT who was comfortable with herself and prominent in the book. I also liked that there were people fighting and unhappy with the species divide, and there were "halfings" and interspecies relationships.
There was a section near the end that I didn't particularly like the setup, but I understand why it was done the way it was. I also feel like the conflict was resolved too easily, but since this is the first book in a series, I have a feeling its not really resolved.
I liked how the relationship was sweet and not "instant love." It took backseat to the paranormal which was also refreshing. The involvement of the parents was also a positive in this book.

Red Moon Rising started out as a interesting book but then towards the end it just seemed to drag on a bit and just didn't have the drive that the beginning had, in my opinion.

It has a different sort of concept about werewolf's and vampires that I thought was interesting. It sort of mirrored the way things were back in the 1950's and 60's with the Civil Rights movement. If you are a vampire then you are sort of like the elite society, but if you Wulf then you are considered to be lower class citizens, they get the worst jobs, they live in the bad parts of town. So if your part vamp and part wulf then your not really considered to be a person of interest.

When Danny was young he had genetic treatments to help him look more like a vampire to fit in with the others at the school he attends, but he got sick during his treatments and they were never finished. His friends all know that he his part wulf and they don't mind but he doesn't like to just spread the word around about who he is, but then he starts changing.

One of the things you have to do if your a wulf is get yourself registered and go to the compound during the full moon. Its a very dangerous place and Danny's father doesn't want to see him half to do this, so he gives him some other alternatives. He could tell his mother and see if his stepfather would spend a huge amount of money to have him put in a facility where they pretty much put you to sleep during the whole full moon experience or he could be a moon runner and avoid the law and be free during the full moon.

If your looking for a serious werewolf book then this is not a book for you. It definitely has a lot of humor and sometimes to me it was a bit much. One thing I really hated was the fact that they would make up names that were so close to the actual product name or person that it just sounded really cheesy. There is a little bit of romance but its not what the book is really about. I like that it has a male point of view though I think it will appeal to both boys and girls.

If you want a interesting werewolf story with a bit of humor then I would recommend you picking it up and giving it a try. Though I can't say it will be going on my favorites list I still liked it.
