What happens when you have spent your entire military career fighting monsters and keeping the human race safe only to discover that you are one of the monsters? An elite squad of men and women has been keeping the human race safe from vampires and werewolves and other paranormal “monsters.” What they didn’t know was that their superhuman strength and abilities to move at the speed of light was far more than a mere drug to heighten their innate skills.
In this book Jack returns to this squad a married man with a mother-in-law – Nadia and Natasha both have realized something dark and deadly is coming and they try to help the hunters. Bombarded with new information on the augmentation, the squad is fighting internally, struggling with the information that they are now werewolves. Not only do they have to accept what they are but now they are joining forces with vampires and others to defeat a common enemy. The Sicarii are deadly and making their moves – wait until you discover who is behind the Sicarii and what he is planning!
The author, Heath Stallcup did an amazing job with details, planning and executing a clear plot; the plot could easily have become convoluted and confusing. It is evident that Stallcup took his time developing characters, story lines and twists and turns. I did appreciate his paying homage to Mark Tufo (one of my favorite zombie authors as well) – when I heard the name of the ex-monster squad member I have to admit my mouth fell open. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
I have not experienced the first book yet, but plan to do so soon. I thought this book was a good segue into the next book in the series. Although I have not read or heard the first one, I can honestly say I will be finishing this series.
Jack Voorhies was a solid narrator. His talented voice made the characters realistic and different enough to tell them apart. There were no hokey or annoying voices – the characters were represented much like I envisioned. He seemed as caught up in the story as his listeners. He spoke with a rhythm that was engrossing. One knew when there was action coming as he began to pick up appropriately. Voorhies brought the characters to life in my opinion. He has moved onto my “love to listen to” list.
There were no issues with the production.

I enjoy the monster squad books alot.
Good characters, interesting and fun fast paced plot.
Unfortunately I find the narration a bit stilted, the voices are good he just seems to pause when he shouldn't and it doesn't seem to flow very well, my only other gripe is the little chime that goes off every now and again.
If you could sum up Full Moon Rising in three words, what would they be?
Exciting, Intelligent, Funny
What was one of the most memorable moments of Full Moon Rising?
The first appearance of the Sicarii - VERY chilling!
What about Jack Voorhies’s performance did you like?
Jack Voorhies is a great narrator. He captures all the characters so well - male/female/monster/human. He brought the whole book to life perfectly.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
It's time to embrace your wolf.
Any additional comments?
I loved this audiobook. Can't wait to read the next in the series.
