Overview

Being only half-vampyre in a high school like Danny Gray's makes you a whole loser. But Danny manages to escape the worst of the hounding thanks to genetic treatments that mask his werewolf side. So far, he's been able to live the privileged life of a vampyre.

Vamps are society's elite, while wulves like Danny's father are less than second-class citizens. During the full moon they become inmates, forced to undergo their Change in dangerous government compounds.

But Danny never had to worry about any of that. Until now. Lately, every time there's a full moon, he's been getting weird symptoms: keen night vision, skull-splitting headaches, and increased strength. Now his new girlfriend, a human named Juliet, is wondering what's wrong with him. She's asking questions questions he can't answer.

If his fears turn out to be true, everything in Danny's life could be destroyed. Is there any way he can get through the next full moon without everyone finding out what he really is?

Set in a paranormal world not too far from our own, Peter Moore crafts an unforgettable coming-of-age story that will raise readers' hackles.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
Dante Gray is passing for vamp in a society where vampires are the superstars; humans looked down upon; and werewolves the subspecies at the bottom of the food chain. Dante is a cross-breed, the product of a vampire mother and a werewolf father and, despite genetic treatments to suppress his werewolf tendencies, it seems he is about to cross over to his lupine side. Pursued by school bully Gunther Hoering (a not even vaguely disguised Nazi vamp), Danny plans to become a "moonrunner," hiding from the monthly concentration camps where wolves are sent to fight it out among themselves during their monthly "change." That's right. Becoming a werewolf is compared to menstruation as there is even a Midol like over-the-counter medication to control the "symptoms" of metamorphosis. Serious vampire and werewolf fans will have many problems with the liberties Moore takes with the mythology. Vampires eat dinner as families, are uniformly blonde and blue-eyed, and treat human blood as an addictive drug. They survive on synth-heme. Thoughtful readers will have greater problems with comparing the vampire-werewolf wars as analogous to Nazi Germany and wolves as Jews hidden in basement chambers, while Civil Rights' era activists fight for the rights of wolves for equal pay. In trying to create a metaphor, author Moore cheapens two very serious historical subjects. Red Moon Rising is really a pedestrian YA problem novel with lots of wulfen and vamp references to sell it to the Twilight crowd. With the summer release of the new Teen Wolf movie, there may be more call for lycanthropic fiction, but recommend Klause's Blood and Chocolate or Jenning's The Wolving Time for good wolf books.

Meet the Author

Peter Moore has been writing fiction since he was eleven years old, and became an amateur lycanthropologist even earlier. Because he studied hard in high school and ate all his vegetables, he was able to attend Vassar College and Columbia University. Though he briefly considered a career in the FBI, America can rest easy: it didn't work out. Instead, he has worked as a screenwriter, college professor, English teacher, and guidance counselor. He lives with his wife and two kids in Westchester, New York. This is his third book for young adults. He strongly denies all rumors that he is a werewolf. Still, he won't say where he goes every month during the full moon.

    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.

    Decent Werewolf 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.

    My friend saw this book on a B&N store and it caught her attention so she bought it and read it. After she finished, she completely loved it
    and pressure me to read it so I went and bought it and absolutely liked it. I'm usually not up for paranormal books especially about
    vampires and werewolves but this story was original and fresh. I really enjoyed reading it and hope that more people read it so we can
    get a sequel!

    I had high hopes that this book would balance out the overabunda

    I had high hopes that this book would balance out the overabundance of teen paranormal books with female protagonists. Danny is half-vamp, half-wulf in a town where wulfs are not at all welcome but since he is believed to be half-vamp, half-human, he fits in well. He joins the rest of the teen vamps who attend school at night, staying out of the sun during the day. The treatments Danny had as a child to keep his wulf features hidden and to stop the change from happening appear not to have worked which brings Danny closer to his wulf father. There is a sweet romance that does not (thankfully) overpower the rest of the story, there is family tension and there is danger. The main detractor was the overuse of pop culture names spelling a bit differently—David Bo.E, Delicious Couture, Gwenbeth Paltroff, Kray-Mart. Really? That put me off quite a bit, but my teen readers might not even notice.

    The paperback edition will be released August 7th and the cover illustration is quite different from the hardcover edition. I like both versions—the hardcover shows more of a nod to the masculine point of view while the paperback illustration points to possible paranormal romance with the boy and girl standing in sunlight, with the boy casting a shadow shaped like a wolf. I’ve decided I like both covers. My students will love this book. Thanks to Puget Sound Council for this review copy.

    Quirky, Original....

    When I picked up Red Moon Rising my fears were that I would be getting another run-of-the-mill werewolf story. It wouldn't have been a bad thing, I just wasn't expecting anything as quirky as Peter Moore gave us.

    Told from a teenage boys point of view, we are already one upping lots of YA paranormal reads available. No matter how you look at it, the workings of a teenage boys brain and that of a teenage girl are going to different. The emotions, their boiling points, their ability to react and how they view the world. Danny, our main character, is not only a teenage boy but also part-wulf making him part of the lowest of the classes after the Vampires and Humans. Teen angst ran sort of thick in this book, but so did the outwardly quirky thoughts and quick witted, funny comments. Something else about Danny that truly stood out to me was the fact that beyond his being part-wulf he was normal. He wasn't the completely hot brooding guy against the cafeteria wall and he wasn't the nerd tripping over his shoes. He was just normal. A normal personality with normal problems beyond being half-wulf.

    Something I tend to notice in novels is when there are underlying morals. Sometimes people over look these because they are so slight and hidden within the story but Red Moon Rising laid a great foundation for pushing some of these morals forward between the prejudice and the division of society. Acceptance and tolerance are what I saw slightly encouraged and pushed which was a great way to add an added depth to the story.

    Overall, I think Red Moon Rising is a great YA read, especially for those male YA book lovers who don't have much of a chance to read books from a guys point of view and for those who enjoy getting inside a guys head. This book really was all about Danny and it worked.
