Peek Inside Under the Moon

Their power gives them strength…and makes them targets.Quinn Caldwell is the epitome of a modern goddess. Her power source is the moon, her abilities restricted only by physical resources and lunar phase. She runs a consulting business and her father’s bar, serves on the board of the ancient Society for Goddess Education and Defense, and yearns for Nick Jarrett, professional goddess protector and the soul mate she can never have.
But someone has developed the rare and difficult ability to drain a goddess of her powers, and Quinn is a target. With the world thinking Nick has gone rogue (whatever that means) and that Quinn is influenced by “family ties” she didn’t know she had, keeping themselves safe while working to find the enemy proves harder each day.
But not as hard as denying their hearts…

Review

"Under the Moon was a good start to the Goddesses Rising series. It’s got action, romance, mystery, AND a pretty badass heroine. What’s not to like about that?" —Grave Tells

"Wow, Under the Moon is a great book. It grabs you at the beginning and doesn’t let go until the very last page. The action is non-stop, the plot is full of twists and the tension is palpable. I also liked the fact that, although there are quite a few characters in the book, they were given enough time and backstory for you to grasp who they were before the story carried on, meaning you genuinely cared about them and what would happen." —Lucy Felthouse

"...overall this book had everything I look for in a book, characters I can connect with, action and maybe just a bit of smexyiness. Though as most of you know I am a sucker for a good romance and while this book leaned more towards the action it still had the romance I crave sometimes. I can't wait for book 2 in this series..." —Book Lover's Hideaway

"Natalie did a brilliant job in establishing each character and the world they live in. The lore behind goddesses walking amongst us and gods being practically extinct was quite interesting. Enjoyed it immensely. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series soon. Truly recommend it." —Lissette E. Manning

"Intense emotional story with a great paranormal plotline that just kept giving." —Nicole, Romance Books Forum

"An enjoyable read with a deliciously alpha protector our to ensure his goddess stays safe." —Shannon, Cocktails and Books

"What a good book, hard to put down, if you put it down. An excellent combination of characters keeps things tense all the way through. The trio's banter is witty and quite comical at times, and the author keeps throwing curve balls to spice things up. I'm looking forward to the next episode!" —Wanda Plourde, Bookloons

"Under the Moon was an enjoyable read with a fast-moving plot full of suspense and sexual tension. The story reminded me a bit of Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden series, the way it was set up... A good amount of action will keep your turning the pages as well. Overall, Under the Moon was a good read that I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy with a touch steamy." —Reading Between the Wines Book Club

"There was a good mix of action and and downtime where the characters were racing to find out what happened to each individual goddess, and how each character fit into their own place within the plot. Also, things weren't just handed away like they are in so many other stories. You were given a chance to figure it out on your own with the characters. As the characters were lead one way, you were lead that way, believing it could be one person when a chapter later you were presented with another aspect that had you believing it was someone else. It was not predictable which is very refreshing!" —Scrawled in Blue

"The world building was full of great explanations and imaginative powers. I loved the whole Goddess storyline. I liked meeting the different goddesses and hearing about what they could do. The action was not lacking. There were plenty of scenes that had my heart beating and had me wondering how the trio would get out of a particular situation. The ending wraps everything up nicely and I'm looking forward to reading what comes next." —Stacy at Urban Fantasy Investigations

"The story builds to a sizzling climax (literally) and a very satisfying conclusion. I loved this book, give it 5 stars and recommend it for all lovers of urban fantasy and romance." —Tahlia Newland

"All in all, I found this to be a good read with lots of potential! I'm looking forward to reading more in this series in the future. This was my first read on my Kindle Fire and it was a great experience (although I do think I will always prefer an actual book). Recommended to fans of paranormal romance!" —Booked on a Feeling

Under The Moon is book one in the Goddesses Rising series by Natalie J. Damschroder. As many paranormal books as I have read, this is my first Goddess book so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was so pleasantly surprised.

For the most part, Goddesses are pretty normal, just like you and I. They... ...more

Goddesses among us well that definitely caught my attention, and I knew I just had to read more. Being a fan of all kinds of mythology, I thought that is what I would be reading about. I was pleasantly wrong and enjoyed this book tremendously.

What I found unique about it was the goddesses and how... ...more

Quinn Caldwell has always enjoyed running the Under The Moon bar she'd inherited from her parents when they unexpectedly died several years ago. Yet hers is not the usual bar normal people would patron. You see, she's a goddess - one who's affinity is tied to the moon. The bar is a haven for godd... ...more

They have certain gifts/skills and areas of expertise and usually use this to enhance others’ lives. They are governed by a Society on which Quinn Caldwell is on the... ...more

Under the Moon is an urban fantasy romance novel. It tells the story of Quinn Caldwell, a goddess who draws her power from the moon - a skill that's incredibly useful when the moon is full, but leaves her utterly powerless when there's a new moon. Enter Nick Jarrett, professional goddess protecto... ...more

By Tahlia January 12, 2012

‘Under the Moon’ is a terrific story, tight and well written, about a goddess, her assistant (and ex lover), her sexy protector and their efforts to stop a man who is on his way to steal Quinn’s power.

In the world of ‘Under the Moon’, goddesses live amongst us, using their power to help people, b... ...more

By Niina December 21, 2011

The plot was very interesting, when goddesses come to their powers at 21 they have a source of power be it flower water or rain or in Quinn's case the Moon. Suddenly two goddesses turn up drained of power, and her protector when the moon is new is coming to her weeks too early to protect her. Tog... ...more

By Samantha February 02, 2014

I'm torn between a 4 star and 5 star so I'll go with a 4.5 rating overall. I very much enjoyed reading this and loved the characters, though I felt that there could have been just a little more development for that area. The concept of the Godesses was interesting, even more so since there wasn't... ...more

TLDR Recap

Quinn Caldwell is your average, everyday woman- aside from the fact that she’s a goddess who draws power from the moon, of course. When a leech begins stealing powers from goddesses around the country, Quinn sets out to find the culprit with her assistant, Sam, and her sexy protectorat... ...more

“Goddess wasn’t only a job description – it was a state of being.”

And for Quinn Caldwell the power of the moon holds much influence over her state being. For one week every month she needs to be “recharged” and sex is the only way to overpower the moon lust she experiences. However, Quinn is ti... ...more

Quin Caldwell is one of the hundred goddesses that live in the United States, and like many she uses her powers to help others. You can usually find her in the bar Under the moon that was given to her when her father died.
Like all goddesses she has an element she draws energy from, hers is the mo... ...more

By Traci December 26, 2011

I was a bit apprehensive at reading this book at first but now I'm glad I did. The goddess concept is starting to trickle into literature now but it hasn't really taken off. I think it's such a hard thing to do correctly to turn it into a great read. However, I'm very happy I read this. It was su... ...more

By Stacy January 12, 2012

I have to start out by saying that the cover of UNDER THE MOON does NOT in any way match the story. There is not one motorcycle/motorcycle rider in the whole book and I just don't get why they have someone on one on the cover. Makes no sense.

UNDER THE MOON was a page turner with some nice twist a... ...more

By Vicky January 15, 2012

This is an urban fantasy romance novel with steamy, but not erotic scenes. The main character is Quinn Caldwell, a goddess who draws her power from the moon. This is great when the moon is full, but not so good when there's a new moon. It also cause her to be extremely needy sexually at certain t... ...more

By Emily May 24, 2014

***May contain Spoilers***
This is a very steamy book (non erotic) that changes up what you think of Goddesses, as Gods not not exist.

Quinn is a Goddess who owns a bar and is only powerful around the full moon, otherwise she is as weak as a human. All Goddesses use their powers to help humans from... ...more

By Lillie December 02, 2013

UNDER THE MOON was a very enjoyable read. Most of the story was borne out in action and dialog, which made the pace quick but informative, and served to keep my interest as a reader.

There's been a spate of novels about goddesses in the past 18 months, but I like the aspect of a power source (almo... ...more

When reading this book I was pulled in by the goddess mythology based story-line.

I received this book as a e-ARC from NetGalley.
I really loved this book! I became invested in the characters very quickly and when something huge (no spoilers) happens to one of the main characters fairly early on I simply refused to stop reading until I found out how it turned out!

Found this in a Barnes and Noble bargain bin and was pleasantly surprised. It had a unique set of concepts - goddesses, protectors, the leeching of powers - and interesting characters.

Under the Moon introduces the reader to the idea of goddesses living among us normal mortals. not goddesses as in Aphrodite or Hera, more like very talented witches with specific powers. it was an interesting and intriguing read. not life... ...more

By Angarad September 07, 2013

Interesting and original book. I thought it was a bit weird that there were only goddesses as supernatural beings but it works pretty well.
