The Rising Moon by Nilsa Rodriguez
How many lives do you have to live to realize that love is stronger than time and death? Orphaned at the age of five, Angelia (Lia) Lafosse was left with questions about whom and what she truly was. One thing was clear. Lia was different. Some might even say cursed. With the help of her best friend, Ryan Woodruff, she begins to unlock the secrets of her families past and discover answers that prove more startling than she ever imagined. Not only was she a werewolf, but a reincarnation of the immortal werewolf, a werewolf with immense powers beyond any of her kind. A werewolf that if discovered by the Lobison’s to have returned, can jeopardize both Lia and those she love. As destiny finds her love does too and they couldn’t be more different. Torn between Lyle Ulric, the charming werewolf whose bloodline is as ancient and powerful as her own. And Adam Ambrose, the mysterious and alluring vampire who’s determined not to allow fate or anyone tear their love apart again. Lia has to make a choice… Destiny or Love…Run or Fight…Live or Die
My Review: By Leigh Savage
Right from the beginning you feel drawn into Lia’s life as the outsider…never quite fitting in. That was until she meets Ryan who shows her that being different wasn’t a bad thing but could in fact be a great thing, if only you embraced it and accepted who and what you are. After all Ryan had first had knowledge about being different, only his wasn’t so visible to the outside world. Ryan knew the legends that surrounded Lia and with the help of his family he would teacher the truth to her about who she was and hopefully how to embrace it.
Lia’s never had to worry about boyfriends that was until Ryan seemed to not only want to be her friend but also wanted her as his girlfriend; however she didn’t feel the same way about him. Form the moment she met Lyle she felt like she’d finally met the one…that is until the name Adam is brought up and even then she’s doesn’t believe that a love from a past life would sway her emotions for Lyle. That was until she finally meets the mysterious Adam and all those old emotions came rushing back making her feel as if time had never torn them apart.
Lia had to make a choice; be with Lyle who knew firsthand what it was like to a werewolf, or Adam who was an immortal vampire and who had been waiting around for centuries for her return to the living world. How could she choose between the two?
