Review: Promised at the Moon (Shifter Rising #1) by Rebekah R. Ganiere

If he can save her from her past, she could be his future.

Natasha Moon is running for her life. Though she’s managed to evade a forced mating, she arrives at a California safe house with no idea if the parents who entrusted her to an enigmatic Alpha are alive or dead.

The lone wolf who gets her to safety draws her like a magnet. But to him, she seems to be just another shifter in need. Just another female he thinks he can boss around.

Liam Grey avoids attachments at all costs. With his own demons to fight, he sticks to relocating shifters in trouble, not playing social worker. But when beautiful, fragile Natasha shows up desperate for more than just a place to stay, his inner wolf howls for a chance to give—and be—everything she needs.

Liam has his hands full keeping Natasha safe from other shifters, and from his own desire. But when Natasha’s ex-boyfriend tracks her down, Liam will have to push beyond the brink to keep her for himself—or lose her for good.

Warning: Contains an Alpha who can’t help sticking his nose in where it’s not wanted, and a feisty female who secretly wishes he’d rethink his paws-off policy.

Promised at the Moon had potential to be a great read. It started out strong with Natasha running from her crazed boyfriend, Daniel. She relocates to California and starts a new life. Things back home are unanswered: Are her parents safe? Is Daniel still hunting her? She starts to form a friendship with the wolf that helps her. Liam has his secrets and has a delicious mystery about him. Cara is sweet and she also has a mysterious past. Natasha, now Asha, begins building her life encounters other shifters at school. Are they good/bad/or something in between? Lots of buildup in the story, I could see things were shaping up nicely. And then…


Right around the halfway point everything started to become predictable. Not only predictable but the excitement and build-up just rather petered out. As this is a series, I was hoping there would be some unanswered questions left to be carried over, some lingering issues to draw me in hungering for the next book. Nope, things were neatly finished off cleanly and tied up with a pretty red bow. I’m not saying pretty red bows are a bad thing because I do like good HEA. However, when the magic that is present at the beginning fizzles out, it just makes the ending seem anticlimactic.


Promised at the Moon is my first book by author Rebekah R. Ganiere. I’m on the fence on whether or not I would like to read the next in her Shifter Rising series. Promised at the Moon was a okay read, and fans of short PNR stories will probably like it. Personally, I like my PNRs stories to have a bit more bite (no pun intended) and excitement that carries from cover to cover to them.
