First, there were the "UnderWorld" movies, then came the TWILIGHT craze (Go Team Jacob!). Now comes a new voice and a new battle between vampires and werewolves. Now you must choose. Whose side are you on?
REVIEW: THE RISING MOON is an exciting and “howling” debut for Rodriguez. (I couldn’t resist.) It’s easy to read, fast-paced and full of interesting and likeable characters. Rodriguez has taken the vampire vs. werewolf phenomenon and made it her own, with a fresh voice and a new hook. YA paranormal readers will be pleased by this series. Rodriguez is definitely an author to watch.
SUMMARY: One morning she was an ordinary and human High School senior, the next, Angelia (Lia) Lafosse is a reincarnated immortal werewolf. Now she must discover the secrets of her past and her past lives in order to survive. For if the Lobison realizes she is alive—again!—it will only mean her death and of those she loves. And to complicate matters, she is torn between her feelings for Lyle Ulric, a werewolf with a bloodline as ancient and powerful as her own, and Adam Ambrose, the mysterious and alluring vampire from her past who is determine not to be separated from her again.
Lia has to make a choice….Destiny or Love….Run or Fight….Live or Die.
