Luna Rising: Book 1

(6 customer reviews)


Xavier Blackwood is the man every girl at my college dreams about at night, myself included, but I’d never let anyone know that.

Standing at 6’8 with steel grey eyes, he’s a walking dream, but he’s also a world-renowned a-hole.

Who would have thought that one night, after dragging myself home after doing double shifts at the diner, I’d be jumped by three men…only to have Xavier come to my rescue.

Oh yes, Xavier bloody Blackwood saved my life…but the thing I saw, the CREATURE that ripped those men to shreds wasn’t the Xavier everyone knows.

He wasn’t human...

He was a wolf, a demon, a creature from myths, and it was the most amazing sh*t I’ve ever seen until he attacked me, too and knocked me out.

Humans that learn about the existence of werewolves have to die.

…There are NO exceptions.

The Werewolf Xavier saved me, but now I am condemned to death…


To make things worse both Xavier and Axel claim I am their mate


…this can’t be good.

    Exciting Story!! Oh wow!! Absolutely loved this story! It’s filled with intrigue and danger along with the unwelcome realization of the discovery of an unusual human being the improbable mate to two future alpha lupine pack leaders. As the story progresses, danger and intrigue grows right up to the cliff-hanger ending. This is one story that I’ll be anxiously awaiting to listen to the next book in this exciting series. The narrator does an excellent job bringing this story to life.

    I received this book free from audiobooks unleashed and I am leaving an honest review.

    Ruby is new in town and when she’s walking home one night she attacked by a gang of men but someone comes to her rescue. Xavier Blackwood saves Ruby however she sees he’s a Werewolf and their laws say any human that sees the must be killed however Xavier takes her to his home. When his Father confronts him about Ruby he admits she’s his fated mate but things are never that easy and it turns out she also a fated mate to a rival Alpha. Really enjoyed listening and as usual Meg Price does a fabulous job of all the characters.

    Wow, this book was amazing, I was glued to it from the beginning, and felt so disappointed when I finished the book! It had a great premise and was an emotional rollercoaster, the characters were easy to identify with and kept me invested. There is a cliff hanger but hopefully we won’t be kept waiting for the next book, Meg Price’s narration was wonderful.

    First. I am not really into shifter books. I’ve never been able to get into them. With that being said, I found Luna rising very captivating. Like a previous reviewer stated, it’s a roller coaster of emotions. The narrator did an amazing job and Sara Snow does a terrific job of keeping your attention with the story.

    I received this book from audiobooks unleashed and am leaving an honest review.

    To be honest I didn’t even finish the book. It wasn’t very descriptive. It went from the first day of school to suddenly a library with the first bit of Xavier and then to the dinner weeks later with more Xavier to after work at the dinner to getting attack with more Xavier to being at xaviers house. Everything revolves around her and Xavier there is no day to day life like Exploring the campus, her first class or meeting her boss for the first time and getting the job or her first opinions of the apartment she moved into. I don’t feel that the book is very well written. It’s to boy focus and not descriptive enough and feels hurried.

    I really enjoyed Luna Rising. It was nice getting to know the character of Ruby purely through her personality and interactions with other characters. The reinvention of some of the werewolf lore is interesting too and very different from most books of the same genre.

    Although we know nothing about Ruby’s past, we are given scattered hints throughout the story but nothing concrete, we are still shown a strong, competent young woman who is smart enough to get herself a scholarship to college and find a job she is competent at and clearly fits well with the small team there if the few conversations we see between them are anything to go by. She also warm, funny with a touch of snark but not cruel,theres also an odd mix of brave and incredibly vulnerability to her character, she will fight against attackers and slap a werewolf all the while wanting nothing more than to be allowed to study and make a life for herself.

    The lack of background to Ruby just makes her so much more interesting to see the young woman she is, the strength she has, and what she has had to go through to get there? When she has a troubling encounter with Xavier, what situation has she been in the past that makes her think he’s going to hit her because he’s angry? There are so many questions about why she is so used to fending for herself, why when she is in trouble even though she fights does she expect no one to help her, why does it seem she has been alone all her life? These are questions I hope will be explored in later books.

    Ruby isn’t scared of the werewolves, which is no surprise, considering the hints of her past and her outlook on the world that pretty much everyone has the right to exist. Seeing the friendships start to develop between her and some in the pack is nice, the conversation with Randal being the main one, seeming so open and honest and I hope that Ruby noticing the scars of bitemarks on his neck doesn’t have significance later in the books.

    The development of feelings between Ruby and Xavier is nice yo watch too his wolf knew they were mates but the human part of him wanted to give Ruby a choice, to let her come to care for him on her own terms, to decide for herself. He wants his Luna to be an equal to him, to support him and the pack and by allowing Ruby to explore her feelings about Xavier and the pack in her own time he’s allowing her to make that choice and form her own bond. The playfulness that grows between them is sweet, especially seeing the bonding between Ruby and Xaviers wolf, telling him off for growling at her and threatening never to kiss him again made me smile, it felt like a natural progression in their relationship.

    I really enjoyed Sara Snows way of telling the story from multiple view points, it really drew you in and helped you warm to the characters in a very short space of time. The pacing of the book was great. You just wanted to keep going and find out what happens next. Yes, darn you, you cliff hanger ending you! The curiosity this story fills you with is excellent, like Ruby you find yourself wanting to learn more about this new realm of shifters and myths come to life, add to that the mystery of our protagonists past and you have the recipe for a really great series and I can’t wait to devour the rest of the books.

    Meg Price is an absolutely brilliant narrator. Each characters personality comes through in her reading, and you really share in the emotions of the characters.
