Overview

"A werewolf epic. Can't stop thinking about it."—Stephen King

They live among us.

They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers.

They change.

When government agents kick down Claire Forrester's front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is.

Patrick Gamble was nothing special until the day he got on a plane and hours later stepped off it, the only passenger left alive, a hero.

Chase Williams has sworn to protect the people of the United States from the menace in their midst, but he is becoming the very thing he has promised to destroy.

So far, the threat has been controlled by laws and violence and drugs. But the night of the red moon is coming, when an unrecognizable world will emerge...and the battle for humanity will begin.

Editorial Reviews

James Lee Burke
"Benjamin Percy is one of the most gifted and versatile writers to appear in American publishing in years. His degree of craft and natural talent are extraordinary; his ear for language is absolutely perfect. His prose has the masculine power of Ernest Hemingway's, but also the sensibilities and compassion of Eudora Welty. His writing is like a meeting of Shakespeare and rock 'n' roll. Benjamin Percy knows how to keep it in E-major, and what a ride it is."
John Irving
"Red Moon is a serious, politically symbolic novel-a literary novel about lycanthropes. If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it."
Peter Straub
"With Red Moon one of our most blazingly gifted young writers stakes his claim to national attention. Benjamin Percy has one great advantage over most writers who attempt 'literary horror': he understands the literature of real horror from the inside out, and he speaks it like a native. This is a novel with the power to thrill and transport, also to lead the reader well out of her comfort zone and into emotional territory few people have ever seen."
Tom Franklin
"There's no other way to say it: Benjamin Percy has written a stunner, a genre-bending novel of suspense and terror but with Percy's usual force-of-nature language and his deep insights into character. I cannot recommend this novel highly enough, nor could I put it down."
Booklist (starred review)
"A splendid read. . . . Percy focuses on a trio of engaging and beautifully drawn characters. . . . [Percy] humanizes the werewolf, turning him from snarling beast into a creature for whom we feel compassion and affection."
Justin Cronin
"Percy has a lusty flair for describing destruction. . . . When Claire and Patrick take the field, the book lights up, and the writing possesses a resonant, emotional honesty. . . . The story is imaginative and lots of fun, and it will deservedly charm many readers."
USA Today
"Atmospheric . . . While some writers of paranormal novels wrap their creatures in romance and comic subplots, Percy has chosen a darker, more literary path. Red Moon is a morality tale cloaked in fur, fangs and social injustice. Werewolves are the monsters in the story, but the bête noire is humanity's moral decline."
Entertainment Weekly (grade: A-)
"Percy is an ace world-builder, creating a massive cast of characters and a surprisingly believable alternate history. . . . Devastating and darkly funny."
Entertainment Weekly's "Must List"
"Percy's latest novel is a smart, action-packed political thriller. . . . It's a high-wire literary act that the author pulls off with panache."
Christian Science Monitor
"Audaciously complex and hauntingly composed. . . . [Percy] ballasts his nightmare with a poet's more natural magic. . . . Fear, this book reminds us, is a beast that's always hungry."
Vanity Fair
"...a terrifically hairy werewolf novel."
O Magazine
"[A] stunning new read."
Ron Charles
"Smart and brisk and often poetic...Percy knows how to draw intense, dramatic scenes as the world goes feral."
Chicago Tribune
"Terrifying and tense."
Nylon
"Evocative, poetic prose...Percy's panoramic portrait is a welcome addition to literary horror."
New York Observer
"Don't mistake this book for anything less than a great literary achievement; Red Moon is, in all likelihood, the most well-written werewolf novel you will come across."
Roxane Gay
"[Percy] deftly negotiates the delicate balance between crafting commentary and a compelling literary creation. . . . A gripping and violent story."
The Oregonian
"It would be tempting, or at least easier, to put Percy's book in the werewolf subgenre, but Red Moon is much more than that. Dark, bloody, violent, relentlessly grounded in the post-9/11 world and the Pacific Northwest, not without humor but sparing in its application, Red Moon could well serve as the Heart of Darkness of a new, more anxious generation, one that must somehow come to terms with the enemies, real or perceived, who live quietly among us."
Minneapolis Star-Tribune
"A remarkably rendered speculative history of America, as well as a gripping, grisly horror story. . . . Poetic . . . In Percy's plagued fictional reality the allegorical connections to current affairs are complex and clever."
The Inlander (Spokane)
"One of America's promising young writers. . . . [Percy] crafts sentences that drip with the same drool of the lycans who both terrorize and save his protagonists. . . . Literary fiction with a menacing tone, a thrilling pace, and no shortage of bloody imagery."
The Missourian
"The prose in this page-turner is purposefully cinematic. . . . Reading Red Moon involves a personal connection with a diverse set of characters, some of whom we may recognize. Percy seems to foster this connection, hoping we relate on a grand scale of humanity. He challenges readers to acknowledge a kinship with the enemy and to 'make yourself heard. Howl.'"
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A remarkably rendered speculative history of America as well as a gripping grisly horror story... Complex, clever and on occasion wonderfully ironic."
Book Page
"Spellbinding . . . RED MOON is a cross between Stephen King and the Michael Chabon of The Yiddish Policeman's Union . . . . A fat, multilayered page-turner. . . . If you haven't read Percy, get started."
The Strand
"RED MOON is a complex novel, and a thriller of real power. The action sequences are fast moving, often gruesome, and delivered with an edge-of-the-seat pace. The descriptive scenes can take your breath away with the power of the writing."
All You Editors
"Packed with suspense, political intrigue and an against-the-odds romance, Percy's latest has all the makings of a summer blockbuster. . . . If you toss this supernatural thriller into your beach bag you're unlikely to regret it."
The Guardian (UK)
"Red Moon is that rare beast, a genre novel that is literary, politically aware and thought-provoking."
Austin Chronicle
"A heady mix of political allegory and urban fantasy. . . . Percy is a skilled writer, able to sympathetically portray both sides of this conflict, never resorting to a good-vs.-evil delineation. His novel examines the themes of race, religion, social injustice, and the war on terror while also providing a provocative update on the werewolf mythos. . . . Those looking for some contemporary politics mixed in with their modern horror will definitely find something to sink their teeth into."
Tampa Bay Times
"A powerfully written alternative history."
Wisconsin State Journal
"Engrossing. . . . Readers shopping for some juicy literary horror to bite into this summer, perhaps starring hungry werewolves, would do well to pick up Benjamin Percy's Red Moon. . . A beast of a tale. . . . tense, slick and as gory as anything you'll read. But Percy's story possesses an unexpected depth, one that forces the reader to hold up a mirror and examine some uncomfortable prejudices."
The Nervous Breakdown
"I can't think of another book that is more timely and relevant to the world we live in at this precise moment-the post-September 11th, post-Boston Marathon bombing landscape of heightened xenophobia and security-than Red Moon."
Publishers Weekly
Reviewed by Stefan Dziemianowicz. Benjamin Percy’s extraordinary new supernatural thriller is a blend of alternate history and weird fiction that holds a mirror up to contemporary America to reflect its fears and biases.The novel opens with scenes that will resonate powerfully for anyone attuned to global events of the past decade: a father saying goodbye to his son before the father, a military reservist, deploys to a remote country where a fanatical sect holds sway, and an engineered terrorist attack that brings three jetliners down on American soil in a single day. In both instances, the antagonists are not jihadists, but lycans: lupine shapeshifters who have lived among regular humans since prehistoric times, and who in 21st-century America are a stigmatized subclass, forced to suppress their bestial nature pharmacologically. In quick succession, Percy introduces the characters who are the major players in his novel’s drama: teenager Patrick Gamble, the sole survivor of the airplane attacks; Claire Forrester, a teenage lycan on the run from government agents who killed her parents; Chase Williams, the opportunistic governor of Oregon (where most of the tale is set) who hopes to exploit fears engendered by the terrorist attack in his bid for the presidency; and Miriam, Claire’s aunt, who has defected from the lycan resistance movement (headed by her husband), which takes credit for the terrorist attacks. Patrick briefly falls in with a group of scary antilycan skinheads who call themselves “the Americans” before befriending Claire. Patrick’s father becomes a victim in the military occupation of the Lupine Republic, which is situated between Russia and Finland but is seemingly modeled on Iraq and Afghanistan. Chase becomes infected with the lobos prion that causes lycanthropy, and struggles to hide this from the public until a vaccine can be perfected. And the resistance, responding to increasingly inflammatory antilycan laws, plots ever more outrageous terrorist acts that escalate to an explosive denouement. Percy lends his novel’s events credibility by working out a convincing pathology and epidemiology for the lobos prion, and situating the lycan struggle at the center of historical moments that echo 20th-century eugenics experiments, the civil rights movement, the ’60s Days of Rage, and the current “war on terror,” whose rhetoric he adapts brilliantly to his story’s purposes. His precision-crafted prose conveys an astonishing amount of detail in as few words as necessary, as in this description of Claire’s lupine transformation: “Her bones stretch and bend and pop, and she yowls in pain, as if she is giving birth, one body coming out of another.” The confidence and assuredness with which Percy tells his story compel him to take some risks that pay off in a shocker of a finale that follows through audaciously on the possibilities of his tale’s premise. By tapping the zeitgeist of the contemporary sociopolitical climate and distilling it into a potent myth concerned with the tyranny of the majority and the demonization of the Other, he has written an ambitious, epic novel that deserves to reach a larger readership beyond genre audiences. Stefan Dziemianowicz is co-editor of Supernatural Literature of the World: An Encyclopedia.

"...a terrifically hairy werewolf novel."—Vanity Fair

Library Journal
Fans of Max Brooks's zombies (World War Z) and Justin Cronin's vampires (The Passage) will enjoy the dramatic breadth of Percy's (The Wilding) tale of werewolves, here called lycans. A prion is the cause of the infection that leads to lycanthropy, and Percy includes public health and minority rights in his depiction of a society that has been trying to deal with the infected for centuries. A lycan rights group launches a terrorist attack on an airliner that shocks the nation, and the main characters deal with the aftereffects. Claire is a lycan who lives an uneventful suburban life with her parents when a post-attack government raid sends her on the run. The lone passenger who survived the attack is Patrick, whose father's National Guard unit has just shipped out as part of the U.S. peacekeeping mission in the werewolf homeland (which happens to be rich in uranium). As the lives of these two young people connect, questions about what it means to be human and how and whether modern society can survive are asked and answered. VERDICT This literary thriller by an award-winning young writer will excite fans of modern horror who enjoy a large canvas and a history to go with their bloody action.—Dan Forrest, Western Kentucky Univ. Libs., Bowling Green
Kirkus Reviews
Percy tries his hand at horror in his latest novel. Here, he envisions a world divided between those infected with a disease that turns them into lycans and those who are disease free. Patrick climbs aboard a plane headed to his mother's as his military father leaves for an assignment. After takeoff, a lycan wreaks havoc, killing everyone in the cabin area except for Patrick, who hides under a pile of dead bodies. Dubbed "Miracle Boy" by the media, the teen tries to live down his instant fame but seems destined instead to be haunted by it. Meanwhile, lycan Claire witnesses the terrifying murder of her parents and flees ahead of the mysterious avenging agency that seems dedicated to killing off the lycan population. A man with questionable character who may or may not run for president, a woman married to a lycan ringleader and a lycan rebel round out the large cast of characters in this novel about the struggle between the lycans and their uninfected counterparts. At stake: the lycan nation's place in society and a country that was once theirs and the toll the escalating war between the two is taking. The smaller story follows the growing romance between Patrick and Claire. Running with gore--almost every page drips blood--and soaked in violence, the book switches back and forth between characters. Percy elbows his way into the horror genre, adding literary polish along the way, but this tale rambles on much too long, with page after page of superfluous detail. Percy leans toward colorful and obscure terms or word usages that will propel many casual readers to pause and pull out their dictionaries, often with unsatisfying results. Percy births an interesting concept that he then submerges in a writing style that is both affected and self-consciously literary.

    Reading the blurb, I couldn¿t wait to get a copy of this book. I

    Reading the blurb, I couldn’t wait to get a copy of this book. I wanted to know who “they” are. I was guessing “they” might be aliens or some underground species of monsters or something really exciting and unimaginable. My imagination was going wild wondering what “they” could be. Imagine my disappointment when I started reading Red Moon and discovered that “they” aren’t that interesting at all. They’re only lycans. And no, I don’t read werewolf-themed books, but since I requested it for review through NetGalley, I had no other choice but to give this 500-page plus novel a go and see if maybe I’ll enjoy it. So I’m subtracting one star because the blurb was misleading and another star because I didn’t enjoy the story as much.

    The good things first. Benjamin Percy is a phenomenal writer. Even if the story sucked completely (which it didn’t) I would’ve given it a high star rating because of his eloquent prose, vivid descriptions and exceptional action sequences and fight scenes. Seriously, this author can write up a storm, but there were times I couldn’t refrain from eye-rolling at some of the analogies he used. Although I avoid books with werewolves (lycans) and other paranormal creatures such as vampires, shifters, witches, etc, I have to applaud the author for cleverly underlining issues such as racism, prejudice, xenophobia and terrorism by creating a novel where humans and lycans are at odds with each other.

    What irked me about the story is that the author builds up the suspense and reader’s expectations to the point where you feel you just can’t take anymore, and then he goes and wraps up the final scenes in a few sentences, which left me feeling deflated and let down. The descriptions were vivid, which contributed a lot to the world building and made it easier for me to immerse myself in the story, but many times it got too lengthy and ended up being page filler. It was clear the author did a lot of research for this book, but the scientific terminology and complex explanations went right over my head, so eventually I started skimming through those.

    Overall, Red Moon was an okay read and I think fans of books with paranormal elements will enjoy this novel without complaint. It just wasn’t for me. I’ll definitely read more books by this author if he writes anything in my preferred genres (or anything which doesn’t contain overused paranormal themes/characters) as he undoubtedly is a very talented writer.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

    This must be the first of a long series of Red Moon stories, since it has no real end. The characters are unsettled and the future is seriously in peril.

    I like a story that ends. Series are popular with authors, I believe, because they use the same thread for future stories, characters and plot lines being already developed.

    One never really understood the impact of the virus on the mind, since some went nuts while being changed, and others could function somewhat.

    I feel that this may be best suited for early teens. The lapses in the plot would not be noticeable. By that I mean: "What? How did that happen? Or how did we get to this stage?

    Politically inclined thriller that addresses not only the obviou

    Politically inclined thriller that addresses not only the obvious segregation of lycans and humans, but also the underlying social aspects of such segregation. We are guided through the lives of two individuals who, although opposite in nature, share a similar path.  Patrick, a young man living with his mother in an unfamiliar town, must deal with his forced celebrity status that came about by an act of terrorism. Claire, a lycan by birth, feels direct repercussions of the attack as well.  Being forced to leave her home, she wanders through Northern Minnesota with nothing but the envelope her father gave her.




    Percy does a good job of incorporating each character into the plot.  Upon first reading, the story seemed fluffy and drawn out, but the author's tenacity becomes apparent shortly after chapter 8, when this supposed fluff takes on real value, and society's opinion falls into a new light.  The characters come to life in a way unseen by the multiple other fantastical thrillers out there.  Percy has found the balancing point between brazen topics and taciturn opposition, creating his own genre of sci-fi thriller.




    Definitely a book worth reading, if you can withstand the immediate staccato of garrulous description.

    Great premise, dissapointing results

    I was riveted and could not put this down for the first 50 pages or so. But by about half way through the book, things started having a sketchy, half-finished feel. For example: the main characters would meet people, begin important relationships, and then poof - these 'extras' would die. Also, there is an excessive amount of gore and horrific abuse, most of which doesn't really serve the storyline much, and several plot twists that defy reason even in this alternate reality. Percy leaves many, many threads untied at the end, and I assume this will lead inevitably to a sequel, which I will not be buying. This book was greatly dissapointing.

    Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

    Red Moon is a deliciously frightening horror book written and read by author Benjamin Percy. In this horror fantasy, Lycans/werewolves and humans live together…but for how long? The Lycans are infected with a highly contagious plague, causing them to lose all control and become violent. Patrick Gamble is flying home to be with his mother when a Lycan on his plane goes crazy and kills all on board except Patrick. A small violent faction called the Lycan Liberation Army proudly proclaims responsibility for the attack, appalling the nation. Government agents attack Lycan Claire Forrester’s home, killing her parents, and forcing her to flee. Oregon Governor Chase Williams throws his hat in the ring for the Presidential election. His platform? Anti-Lycan attitudes.

    Red Moon proves the great talent of Benjamin Percy. For most authors it is very difficult to write smooth transitions when the action is repeatedly moving from the past, to the present, to the future. However, the author makes it appear effortless. His transitions are as smooth as glass. Red Moon has a character-driven plot. Both the good guys and bad have flaws and redeeming qualities. Red Moon has a social and political message concerning civil rights and discrimination. I came to care deeply about the welfare of the characters. The reader does need to be prepared for the violence and bloody gore. Benjamin Percy gave it all to Red Moon: romance, horror, thriller, paranormal, and political statement. This review concerns the audio format. Move over vampires, werewolves are back in style.

    This was a good book, but slow in spots... it didn't really have an ending so I figure there will be at least one more... I would most likely read the next one just to figure out what happened to the characters.
