Book Review: Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur #bookreview #paranormalbooks #booktwt


To get information on a killer, Neva Grant needs to seduce a male from the Sinclair pack.

The fourth and only surviving victim is her twin sister, who is fighting for her life from a hospital bed.

The only way for Neva to break into the circle of trust is to offer herself to Duncan Sinclair.

Duncan is known for his appetite for women, but when Neva catches his attention, he’s drawn to her more than anyone else he’s ever met.

When he realises she’s playing games, he is determined to push her to her breaking point.


The soulmate trope is obviously at play here, even if the author tried hard in the beginning of the book to not make it obvious. It’s a book about werwolves, so the predictability is present.

There were many word for word repetitions of phrases that I didn’t find a purpose for and the technique didn’t enrich the plot in any way.

There were also strange inconsistencies with some characters not knowing certain details and then later on knowing every detail of them, but there are no explanations to explain how it even happened, which damped interest in the book.

You have physically perfect characters, not just the main ones but pretty much everyone in the book. While I know this is a paranormal book and you have to be opened minded, that aspect just seemed too unrealistic to believe.

The main characters, Neva and Duncan are these physically flawless beings that have everything going for them on outside appearance yet are shallow and boring on the inside.

The couple shared no levels of attraction besides a physical one and that was lacking in perspective. The romantic parts that were written in were cheesy.

The parts of the book when Neva is pushed into doing things she doesn’t want to do by Duncan were dodgy and uncomfortable, and the concern of proper consent is troubling.


Neva is a gullible character way in over her head, Duncan is a jerk and the villains were way too obvious to keep me in proper suspense to get down to the truth.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.00 on GoodReads. I gave it a 3.
