In this exciting debut, author Keri Arthur explodes onto the supernatural scene with a sexy, sensuous tale of intrigue and suspense set in a world where legends walk and the shady paths of the underworld are far more sinister than anyone envisioned. A rare hybrid of vampire and werewolf, Riley Jenson and her twin brother, Rhoan, work for Melbourne’s Directorate of Other Races, an organization created to police the supernatural races–and protect humans from their depredations. While Rhoan is an exalted guardian, a.k.a. assassin, Riley is merely an office worker–until her brother goes missing on one of his missions. The timing couldn’t be worse. More werewolf than vampire, Riley is vulnerable to the moon heat, the weeklong period before the full moon, when her need to mate becomes all-consuming.… Luckily Riley has two willing partners to satisfy her every need. But she will have to control her urges if she’s going to find her brother….Easier said than done as the city pulses with frenzied desire, and Riley is confronted with a very powerful–and delectably naked–vamp who raises her temperature like never before. In matters carnal, Riley has met her match. But in matters criminal, she must follow her instincts not only to find her brother but to stop an unholy harvest. For someone is doing some shifty cloning in an attempt to produce the ultimate warrior–by tapping into the genome of nonhumans like Rhoan. Now Riley knows just how dangerous the world is for her kind–and just how much it needs her.… (mer)

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this book on my first read-through. It really is quite fun.

This book spans a single week of time so it's able to cover events quite nicely. The scene is set well with all necessary information communicated but it doesn't feel 'forced' or 'omg..get ON with it'.

Yeah.. I do like this series.. definitely not high literature and doesn't drag me in compulsively... but perfect for a 'stay-in-bed lazy Sunday morning' ( )

It was ok I mean I liked it but I wasn't all to keen on the whole hey I'm a werewolf on the week of a full moon so I'm going to be a slut...but other than that I liked the book and willl continue to read the series. ( )

Honestly I'm not sure what to think about this book. From reading previous reviews I can see that there are basically 2 camps. The "I hate this book" camp and the "I'm going to read the series" camp. I fall somewhere between the two. While I thought that it was slightly ridiculous that she was so overwhelmed by the moon fever that she had a hard time functioning, but at the same time in this world there are thousands of werewolves. How so if once a month for an entire week their basically incapacitated by their libido? On the other hand, her love for her brother, the beginnings of a romance with Quinn, and the betrayal by someone she trusted were very well written. I felt almost as mad as she was each time those were mentioned. I do think I will read the 2nd in the series to see how the story progresses and develop my understanding of this world better. ( )

Listened to audio narrated by Justine Eyre. Riley and her brother are dhampir twins, working for the Directorate. When Rhoan goes missing Riley is determined to find him. Riley finds Quinn naked outside her and Rhoan's appartment door, neither of whom trust each other at first. They work together to save Rhoan and working to solve the mystery of the clones. There's so much going on and a lot of world building, as we follow Riley. There's the moon madness, making for frisky wolves, multiple partners and variety of sex. Quinn's distrust of werewolves due to his past history with them. Riley's sex partners planning more for her than she realized. Great read but the end was like abrupt, like slamming into a brick wall that you have to climb over to get to the next book.

In Full Moon Rising, Riley Jenson along with her brother, are what considered half breeds. Riley is half vampire and half werewolf. But her werewolf side is dominant from her vampire side. Riley despises vampires, and it still boggles her mind about what her brother Rhoan does. He works for the Melbourne’s Directorate of Other Races, this organization is basically the police force for supernatural creatures. But when Rhoan goes missing on his latest mission, she knows that something is wrong. That Rhoan is alive but has been taken by someone., Riley is shocked when Rhoan's friend and a vampire shows up on her front door. What is worse, is that Riley is about to go through the "Moon Heat" a weeklong affair, where the full moon affects her body in a carnal way. Thankfully she has two partners already available, but while on the hunt for her brother. But who she really craves is Quinn, the vampire that heats her blood like none other.

In Full Moon Rising I was highly impressed with this story. This is a author I have heard many things about, but haven't read her...until now and I can tell you right now that this won't be my last read from her. This one was a bit more sensual than I was expecting, but the scenes were pretty short but plentiful. What I enjoyed the most was Quinn and Riley and seeing the beginning's of their relationship. We see how much they are beginning to care for each other, even though a relationship can never happen. Quinn was recently betrayed by a wolf that he was in love with. And he will never risk himself ever again. I really liked Riley as the main feature of the story. We see her spunk and her charming personality. She isn't afraid to have sex when she has the need for it...she isn't ashamed of who she is. But we also see how much she craves a mate as well, someone to share a life with and have children with. So even though she is a bit brazen at times....she was refreshing and I am eager to see her in the rest of the series.

Overall this was a wonderful book and this one left me excited to try out book 2 especially with a bit of a cliffhanger, not to the story but to the romance, and since I like my HEA....it seemed like a cliffhanger for me. But in all honesty...I truly felt swept away into this story and I couldn't get enouhg. Job well done Keri Arthur....you have me hooked. ( )
