Praise the Three Little Piggys!! Finally a werewolf book a boy can sink his canines into without rolling his eyes at dreaded love triangles and lip gloss and wardrobe changes.

Totally something to howl at!!

"Red Moon Rising" is about a 9th grade boy (15 years old) who is half vampyre/half werewulf.

Being a werewolf is a big social NO NO! They are treated unfairly and when the full moon comes every month they are dumped into compounds that to me were like concentration camps for wulves. They are even tattooed at birth, having to wear the symbol of the wolf on their hand.

The book doesn't go into what the compounds are like on the inside but you get the idea that this is a fight for civil rights.

Taking place at Capathia Night High (a supernatural school for vampyres and werewolves) we follow Danny through out his day. We learn here that wulves are not treated equally.

Danny doesn't really worry about the wulves until he starts to notice hair growing in funny places and his senses starting to heighten.

Since Danny is half wulf/half vamp his family had him go through a series of treatments to basically put the wulf to sleep. They worked for Danny's sister but for some reason Danny didn't get to be so lucky.

"Red Moon Rising" is a really funny book at times. I really enjoyed reading it and I loved the fact that these wulves are the kind of beasty that stands up on two feet and not down on 4 paws like a bow wow.

I definitely think that boys and girls would both equally enjoy this book. Sure, there is a tad bit of cussing but it's not anything your kid hasn't heard on "The Jersey Shore." Actually it's probably way tamer than that.... and less scary ;)

I'd recommend this to all sons out there that are into werewolves but don't want a love story. Sure, there is a tad bit of romance but because this book is written by a man it's not a swoonfest and will leave your boy laughing out loud with the way Danny is thinking.

Totally worth checking out and letting your little teen/tween howler take a bite at.
