Review

"Graeme Reynolds has written a real-deal werewolf story. In these dull days of nice, friendly lycanthropes, it is refreshing to see some brutality and animal instincts in what is a very fine British horror novel. Reynolds draws vivid pictures with words. His descriptions of High Moor the town is excellent, portraying an area in decay, one that suffered during the 1980s, and has yet to recover into the 21st century. The transformation scenes, where humans become wolves, are brilliantly done, and you can feel every crack of bone, every tear of flesh. High Moor is a worthy addition to the werewolf canon. - Thomas Emson, Author of Maneater, Prey, Skarlet, Krimson, Zombie Britannica"

Ripe for a film or TV adaptation and left open for a sequel, High Moor is an excellent example of great British writing that deserves to be read. - Starburst Magazine. 9/10

If you're craving some good werewolf action with well-developed characters and a fantastic plot, skip the Hollywood films and go straight for this electrifying novel, which is far more entertaining. - Hellnotes.com

Graeme Reynolds has written a captivating, action packed, this-should-be-a-movie werewolf novel in High Moor and if this is going to be a series of some sort, count me in for the ride. It should be a fun one. - Horrortalk.com

It takes a writer of tremendous skill to imbue a an action packed novel with as much depth, as is displayed here. - Gingernuts of Horror.

Just finished reading this on my Kindle, and it really was a very good book. The author does a great job of telling the story, and you could identify with the characters, like they were real people. The descriptions of the werewolf transformations were so realistic, you could actually visualize it as you were reading it. It had just the right amount of "gore" when people were being killed, without being too graphic or drawn out. And even through all the fast-paced, scary moments of the book, there were funny comments that made you laugh.
I would give this 4 1/2 stars though, if I could. Only because I felt like it ended VERY abruptly, and left quite a few unanswered questions. Like what actually happened to the main character's parents ( and a few other characters)? And the differences in werewolves could be confusing at times. I can't say too much more than that though without giving away parts of the book.
I know it probably ended the way it did so that there can be another book, but it still left me thinking, "That's it?!"
After all that though, I'm hooked....and hoping for a sequel of some kind! I would definitely recommend this book!

A modern take on the werewolf concept---sort of like Blade was for vampires. More action than horror but lots of fun. The story was well-paced and interesting; there was plenty of tension, suspense, and surprises; the characters were well drawn and believable; the writing style was very fluid and mature; the plot made sense and could easily sustain another installment to further develop the story(ies).

And the werewolves were big, vicious and nasty as they are supposed to be. And some of the people were too....

I will be watching for this writer.

Right off, I have to admit that I am a sucker for werewolves. I have always had a place in my heart for them, and I find them the most fascinating of all the creatures who go bump in the dark. So I am a willing reader of lycanthropic stories.

High Moor mostly delivers. The novel opens with an outbreak of werewolf-related violence in the UK some 20-plus years ago, people being torn apart in bloody orgies of destruction. The police are baffled by the deaths, and fear pervades the community. The storyline initially follows a young brother and sister and their friend, a cop who discovers the truth in the cause of the killings, and an American werewolf hunter.

It turns out that the initial killings are being done by a "moonstruck" werewolf, someone who cannot control her animal urges and becomes a mindless creature of death and destruction. Other weres try and keep a lid on the situation. They can control their changings, and they strive to blend into society, letting no one know of their abilities.

I will write up front that many of the prime characters meet their end, both back in the early part of the novel and then again when the timeline jumps up to the present. And most of their deaths are quite graphic in detail.

One of the difficulties in writing a tale where so many people die is how to describe their deaths in a way which elicits horror, but does not become mind-numbingly repetitive. Just how many ways can a writer describe a bite to the throat and still evoke a sense of horror? In this case, the author does a very credible job of managing this difficult task. The violence is quite gory, but each scene brings something new.

Characterization is a strong point in the novel.

High Moor is a really well done Werewolf novel. Half the novel takes place in 1986 and the other half takes place 12 years later in 2008 following John and the people around him getting caught up in werewolves and death. The story was pretty good and kept me interested throughout. I enjoyed reading about John and his friends as kids and the parts of Steven and Carl hunting werewolves. The plot wasn't anything new, but it was done pretty well. The dialogue was more fit for the area it takes place in, which is a little different then what i'm used to, but still wasn't anything hard to understand. Some books I've seen take the local dialogue a bit far and can make some characters almost unreadable, but that wasn't the case here. The story ended in a great cliffhanger and sets up for the next book really well.

Overall a great story, i look forward to reading the sequel whenever it comes out.

I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of books based on werewolves. I've seldom read any that have truly impressed me and if I'm honest, I'm of the opinion that there's only so much you can do with a werewolf story.

Against that background, I started reading Graeme Reynolds' High Moor with some hesitation.

I found the synopsis for High Moor to be uninspiring and fairly generic. However, this is not a fair reflection of the contents of High Moor. There are no cursed noblemen here or hybrid vampire/ werewolves; Reynolds takes the lycanthropic legend and drops it off in the North East of England of the mid-1980s; replete with unemployment, urban decay and other realities associated with the area at that time. Moreover, Reynolds central characters being children are not the naive youngsters might see in many horror films or books but streetwise, with mouths like sailors; and an attitude that is appropriate for kids growing up in such surroundings. Reynolds clearly remembers the 80s with numerous references that were a real blast from the past for me: computer games on cassette, World Cup sticker albums, etc. It's little flourishes like these that start to set High Moor apart from other werewolf tales.

Where some authors would have been content for their work to finish, I found that Reynolds continued. In fact, I felt that there were two natural points during proceedings (setting aside the open ending) when the story could have been satisfactorily concluded. Instead, Reynolds chooses to advance his werewolf tale and at no point, did it feel like it was dragging out. It gave me a great sense of fulfilment to know what ACTUALLY happened to characters after the dust had settled on their own werewolf encounters and how it had impacted on their lives.
