The people of High Moor are united in horror at the latest tragedy to befall their small town. As dawn breaks, the town is left to count the cost and mourn its dead, while breathing a collective sigh of relief. John Simpson, the apparent perpetrator of the horrific murders, is in police custody. The nightmare is over. Isn't it? Detective Inspector Phil Fletcher and his partner, Constable Olivia Garner, have started to uncover some unsettling evidence during their investigations of John Simpson's past - evidence that supports his impossible claims: that he is a werewolf, and will transform on the next full moon to kill again. However a new threat is now lurking in the shadows. A mysterious group have arrived in High Moor, determined to keep the existence of werewolves hidden. And they will do anything to protect their secret. Anything at all...… (lisätietoja)

This guy is one of my favorite narrators! His name is Chris Barnes and his voice carries a Scottish brogue that makes my ears tingle when I'm listening to my audio horror- thus introducing the book series that he told me was awesome. At first I wasn't sure, but he convinced me, it was worth the listen. He was right!

The High Moor series, by Graeme Reynolds, is werewolf hell! The stories are shared book by book below, so prepare for a wild ride of a book review!

High Moor, Book 2: Moonstruck
It's all about revenge with these people! And so many angry cops! Man- everybody was angry in this book! The action was full and the killings were gory as ever! The voice of Barnes kept me happy as I read in to the series.

I enjoyed this one much more than the first. The surviving victim of the attacks in book one has been on the run. He's Moonstruck, meaning a wild wolf that needs to be taken down, according to the law. But there's a lone werewolf hunter who's working the job way too well. His actions set a string of catastrophes- rage, revenge and mistakes.

When you've not changed for a while, your inner-wolf can become a Bezerker, I guess. That's what also happens to those who change and forget their human side Also, if you've been bitten by a MoonStruck werewolf, you take on those traits. That's what was going on in this tale. Everyone was afraid of him, because MoonStruck's are known for an their animalistic animal behavior, but that's not the case for our hero.

​ I didn't have high hopes, but this one was fab! There was action throughout the story and tons of gore for the true werewolf fan! I didn't think I'd enjoy Moon Struck, but I did.

If you like werwolf horror, these books do not fail. There's tons of gore, horrific attacks and Russian accents for days. I enjoyed it and can happily say, I was proven wrong when I thought the other books wouldn't be likable. Happy to say! So check out the High Moon series, while I move on to the next read!

My full Moonstruck: High Moor 2 audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

Often times I compare many second books in a series to The Empire Strikes Back, story climax was early, then much of the story and character building is for the next part of the trilogy, that’s exactly what happened here. Picking up immediately where High Moor left of, letting us know what happens after the final battle of the previous book. While the Moonstruck John Simpson is the main suspect in a series of brutal murders, the werewolf clan has sent a, for lack of a better term, hit squad to clean up any and all loose ends, and Simpson is one of those loose ends. Reynolds was able to keep the same feeling, the gut wrenching, the brutality, the violence and gore, keeping the horror feel to the story, instead of a cutesie paranormal story. There was a ton more werewolf action than the first book, which I appreciated greatly. Along with a few plot twists that I did not see coming. If you were a fan of the first book you must give this a listen. If you have listened to neither and are looking for an original story to disturb your soul, full of action, brutal violence, and yes even some humor and love, you must listen to this series.

The best way to start off this review of Graeme Reynolds’s High Moor 2: Moonstruck is with a glance back at what I had to say about the original High Moor:

I truly loved this book. Once I started to really read it, I finished the novel in a day and a half. Whenever I put it down, I found myself coming back to it almost impulsively. I haven’t been this addicted to something since I downloaded Angry Birds. Recommended without reservation to anyone who is a fan of horror or anyone that wants to be. High Moor is the kind of book that will make converts of us all.

It goes without saying that I was anticipating High Moor 2 immensely, but also with some trepidation. After such a great debut, could Reynolds keep it up? Was there any way that he could match the intensity of the original, the page-turning ferocity of its werewolves? Would we end up with a mindless retread? More werewolves, more killing, more boring? I was afraid, my friends. Well, now I’ve read the book and I have my verdict.

Not only is High Moor 2 an incredible ride worthy of my expectations, indeed, it accomplishes something truly rare—it surpasses the original.

SPOILERS AHEAD

High Moor 2 begins precisely where High Moor left off. John Simpson is in police custody, accused of brutally murdering (and eating) several people. The love of his life, Maria, is in the morgue, the authorities under the impression she is dead. Meanwhile, werewolf hunter Steven is in a coma, with the first stirrings of the beasts he has spent his life hunting surging through his blood. Meanwhile, teams of werewolves are on their way to High Moor, intent on destroying the evidence and keeping the existence of the pack a secret. And that means killing John Simpson.

END SPOILERS

One thing that is certainly the case—if you liked High Moor, you will like this book. Reynolds writes as if the last book never stopped. The style is crisp, the story doesn’t seem forced, and the action doesn’t let up. New characters are introduced with ease, and Reynolds makes us care for them almost immediately. Which just makes it all the better when werewolves start eating them. I’m going to repeat from my original review, because it is appropriate here.

The werewolves in Reynolds’s novel are of two varieties. Most can change at will, controlling the beast within while also harnessing its power. Others are “moonstruck,” able to change only upon the full moon. They are wild and vicious, and the pack werewolves hunt them down, lest they reveal their secret to the world. And let me tell you, there is a lot of hunting, a lot of fighting, and a lot of killing. No character is safe in Reynolds’s world, and that he establishes this fact early on heightens the tension in every werewolf encounter. His descriptions of the attacks are so rich and vivid that you will see them in your mind’s eye with a clarity normally reserved for movies. And it is that talent with description that may be Reynolds’s strongest suit. The man isn’t just writing a scene. He is creating a world for his characters to inhabit.

This book is amazing. It has some of the most gut wrenching scenes of horror I have ever read, and Reynolds is an absolute master of an action scene. If you haven’t read the High Moor series, don’t worry. These books are so good that I fully expect they will have a Hollywood treatment at some point in the future.

Verdict: Reynolds has knocked it out of the park. High Moor was shortlisted for a Bram Stoker Award. I wouldn’t be surprised to see High Moor 2: Moonstruck win the whole shebang.
