About the Author
Graeme Reynolds has been called many things over the years, most of which are unprintable. By day, he breaks computers for a living, but when the sun goes down he hunches over a laptop and thinks of new and interesting ways to offend people with delicate sensibilities. He lives somewhere in the UK with two cats, a flock of delinquent killer chickens and a girlfriend that is beginning to suspect that there is something deeply wrong with him. He has over thirty short story publications to his name, and is a member of the Horror Writers Association and the British Fantasy Society. http://www.graemereynolds.com http://www.facebook.com/HighMoorNovel @graemereynolds --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!
In a sleepy town, something's killing animals and people. If it weren't for two young boys and a gun-toting Yank, the entire town would have been eaten alive! But there's even more to the story than that - there's a family nearby, sitting in wait for a sign. When to make am move and when to destroy. Lastly, there's a man (Steven), who's trying to keep a promise and battle an age-old evil - even if it kills him.
This story was pretty good, but I had a few issues with the interaction with the characters. With such an unorthodox situation, it was odd to have the characters trust so quickly, so easily! Everything seemed to happen at an accelerated rate, causing me to side-eye the book. I enjoyed it, but... I don't know.
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!

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!
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.
I have been wanting to get to this one for a while, so when I had the chance to get a hold of a review copy of the audio book from Chris at Dynamic Ram Audio Productions/Horrific Tales Publishing for an honest review, I jumped at the chance. (Incidently, Chris also did the audio work for this novel and did a fantastic job)
High Moor by Graeme Reynolds is fast and furious story with a ton of action and plenty of blood. Just the way I like it! This one moves quickly and the plot flows at a good pace. The characters were well drawn and I really was engaged in the story from the get go. The heavy accent only took a minute to get used to and once the action got moving it added a lot to the ambiance of the story.
Can’t wait to sink my teeth into the sequel. Very solid!
If you are not a fan of gore... don't read this book. You'll hate it, because the gore is not only a big part of the story, it's also so well written that you feel you're there as a twisted little spectator. I would recommend anyone with delicate sensibilities to stay away from this book, because I've heard people complain about the swearing too. I personally think it suited the setting, and made the characters more realistic.
The story is very tight, the characters are wonderful and very realistic. I recognized friends in it, but also myself a few times. Not a word is wasted in the writing, and the descriptions really blew me away. Even though the story and the concept are pretty straight forward, the author put some interesting layers that set this story apart. There are a few twists that really had me going, and I might have cursed a few times. The end left me slack-jawed.
After reading this I need a moment to pick myself up, and get back to reality. I have a bit of a reader's hangover now, and I feel as if I just stepped out of a roller coaster ride. I can't wait to get started on the second book. The narrator Chris Barnes deserves a big pat on the back too, he really brought the story to life. I listen to a lot of audio books, and he managed to do what a lot of narrators can't. I'm a fan!
I'm not one of those people who will blow smoke up someone's backside. This book blew me away, plain and simple. I don't tend to like werewolf stories, but I think I might have just changed my mind on that whole genre. This gets a solid five stars from me, in writing and storytelling. I would recommend it to anyone with a taste for intense horror.
