This was even better than the first, and that's saying something!! I loved book 1 but this surpassed it. Don't read the next paragraph if you haven't read book 1 because there are unavoidable spoilers in it!! When we left book 1, John was captured and accused of multiple murders, Maria was in the morgue, presumably dead and Steven is turning into the thing he despises the most. Michael and his pack of Werewolves are coming though and no one is safe. They have to protect the secret no matter what, even if it means killing his own sister. First things first, they have to kill Sampson before he turns in the prison!! Once again, Graeme Reynolds brings his A game to play. I usually find that book 2 is mainly a filler book, if you get my meaning. In most cases, not much happens in a second book, but that's not the case here. Reynolds upped his game and this book is so much better than the first. He ramped up everything, more action, more Werewolves, more character development, more violence and a lot more twists. He even introduces more characters and manages to wrench out our hearts with what happens to them! Everything about this book, and indeed the previous book, is amazing. The action starts straight away and never lets up, the characters have so much depth that it's hard not to like each one, and the author put so much into the book, that it shows. The different Werewolves was, again, fascinating and I loved finding out more about them. Everything about the book was captivating and engrossing. Again, the author doesn't shy away from violence and gore, nor does he shy away from killing off characters, which I loved. The story is dark but deliciously so! I so want to see these books made into a movie because I think they would rock. Anyway, I could keep gushing about the book but I may spoil things so I'll stop! All I'll say is Go Buy This NOW. You will not be disappointed. I listened to the audio and once again Chris Barnes delivered. Like the first, he really knows when to add tension and when to pull back. He draws you into the story and makes you a part of it. If you are looking for some new audio books then check out his work!

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! *For full review: http://www.areneehunt.com/the-reviews/high-moor-series-by-graeme-reynolds High Moor Series Graeme Reynolds Horrific Tales Publishing November 17, 2011

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.

Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite High Moor 2: Moonstruck by Graeme Reynolds is the second episode in the High Moor series, and may be even better than the first episode. Graeme Reynolds is a master of the werewolf legend, and Moonstruck is one of his brilliantly detailed narratives. The name Moonstruck refers to a type of werewolf who cannot control his transition from man to wolf, but always turns when the moon is full. He cannot restrain “his wolf,” nor does he have any recollection of whatever he may have done while a wolf. According to pack law, moonstruck werewolves must be hunted down and killed, in order to protect the anonymity of the pack. If a moonstruck were allowed to live, and subsequently slaughtered indiscriminately so that people were made aware of the existence of the mythological werewolf, humans the world over would seek and destroy all werewolves. Packs are ruled by their own laws; they can “turn” any time they want, and control what they do while in their wolf phase. To maintain their “mythical” reputation, they do not feed on humans, restricting themselves to rodents and the like.  High Moor 2: Moonstruck is a story about an exhaustive effort by a pack to find and kill a single moonstruck who has been discovered. To the surprise and dismay of the pack, this moonstruck has far greater strength than any they have previously encountered, and capabilities unheard of for a moonstruck. The story is packed with action, subterfuge, and betrayal, and is quite an enthralling tale. Reynolds’ narrative is as thorough as documented history, but as entertaining as any Hollywood blockbuster. Reynolds writes about werewolves as if they truly exist, and he makes the reader “suspend disbelief” every bit as well as any author of fiction ever has. Reynolds is an exceptionally gifted, superbly skilled storyteller. Any reader who wants a meticulous account of “real” werewolves must read High Moor 2: Moonstruck. This story is a riveting delight.
