Review - The Full Moon Rises

I am very happy to share a new review of my latest release, The Full Moon Rises (A Howl in the Night, Book 2).


The Full Moon Rises
Courtney Rene
By Jeffrey Ross 

5 stars out of 5

The Full Moon Rises: A howl In the Night Book 2 by Courtney Rene continues the dramatic life of Abby, a nearly seventeen-year-old shapeshifter who tries to balance her wolf and human “selves.”

This unique coming-of-age narrative details Abby’s struggles with her own special nature and the patriarchal wolf clan to which she belongs-- and climaxes as she confronts the wolf-destroying group The Hunterz.

A successful strain of feminism persists in this second book of the Howling as strong-willed Abby exerts her emerging personality and successfully defines her relationships with humans and shapeshifters.

I only hope a third book is in the works for this gritty, naturalistic, and enticing series.


Very nice review, eh?  Thank you, Mr. Ross!  Woo hoo.  Now this leaves me with a quandary...several actually.  One, how soon can I start book three, as I have several projects I'm currently working on; and two, how to finish up the series with action, excitement, and all that comes with it, but not make it too busy and overwhelming and stupid.  I will have to let you know what I decide.  

First up to finish though is my current WIP with a working title of Possessions.  I am almost done with the edit.  Almost...but if you know me at all, you know I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to editing. 


  1. That is brilliant, Courtney--congrats! I couldn't agree more with his review. And knowing you, you also get a hell of a lot done. So I'll expect book three next week. ;)

  2. Great review! Ha ha to CarrieBoo's comment. I expect book three next week too! However, no matter when you finish it, I know it will be great. I'm also just as excited to read your new WIP Possessions. So quit eating bon-bons and get to it! Actually, I know how busy you always are so I'm willing to wait for however long it takes you. Patience is worth the wait!
