Overview

Andy McNab meets Buffy the Vampire the Slayer in this razor sharp fast moving supernatural thriller from an exciting new author.
 
"My name is unimportant, but you can call me Jack. I'm a musician by choice, a magician by profession, and a bastard by disposition.

I'd been doing the magic thing for about five years when they found me. They said I had a talent, that I was smart enough and fit enough and enough of a shit that I could serve my country in a way most people never even get to hear about. And I did want to serve my country, didn't I?

I didn't really want to contemplate what might happen if I said no."

And so Jack found himself on the front line of a secret war that most people simply wouldn't believe was possible. Working for a secret organization tasked with defending our country from whatever supernatural threat faces it. MI5 know nothing about and would laugh if they found out. Well at first they would. Whether wiping out a group of demon summoners, infiltrating a coven determined to assassinate the PM, or rooting out a neo-nazi sect who are trying to bring back Hitler from the dead Jack is a very modern sort of magician—trained in a variety of the dark arts but also a dab hand with a Heckler and Koch, skilled in unarmed combat and electronic surveillance. David Devereux has combined the action writing of McNab and Ryan with dark supernatural thrills and produced a blistering new breed of supernatural thriller. This is Dennis Wheatley for the 21st century.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Bad-to-the-bone radical separatist witches are out to kill England's prime minister in Devereux's satirical, scary and weirdly funny debut, already on its third U.K. printing. When Jack, an agent of the Service's Special Branch, learns that the magic-wielding Enlightened Sisterhood has joined forces with the all-male anarchist group Eleven-Eleven, he sends his partner, Annie Hargreaves, to infiltrate the coven. Shortly after her initiation into the inner circle, Annie vanishes along with nine key Sisterhood members. Jack swings into action to save her and deal with the dangerous nutters. Self-proclaimed former exorcist Devereux doesn't flinch when it comes to odd magic rituals, gory violence, kinky sex or hilarious spy escapades, and Jack's brash narration is disarmingly addictive despite his quaint descriptions of "the dumbass Yank" and "Goddess-worshipping, man-hating, we-know-everything-because-we're-women" feminists.

From the Publisher
"Satirical, scary and weirdly funny."  —Publishers Weekly

"Sparky inventiveness and lickety-spit pace."  —The Daily Telegraph

"While America employs the services of cute blonde teenagers to fight demons; the British way is uglier and more brutal but makes for an absolutely cracking read!"  —SFX

"Sharp-edged, violent. It's a measure of Devereux's skill as a writer that you find yourself rooting for his protagonist."  —Fortean Times

    If you even slightly like this you'd probably like Jim Butchers Dresden files even more.

    Hunters moon is fairly well written, but anyone that is into the supernatural scene will feel that for what it should be, it slightly falls short. It's almost purely a cross between James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, CSI and a spot of magic thrown in to keep today's witch and wizards yuppies from putting it down. Overall It's not a bad read, but it isn't the most thrilling. If you really like James Bond and those others then it's the book for you, but if you want something exciting, cleverly written, and fun to read, go for Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, or Kim Harrison.
