This story takes place in the late 1800s and focuses on the evil ways of loggers enjoying themselves at that time. Big John is seen as the camp golden boy. He's been logging and throwing his money to drink for many years. There are a few men that take the logging job to save for their future. Bill is one of the good ones. Big John sees an easy way to steal the naive Bill's money and belongings in Red's Saloon. Fortunately for Bill, the saloon keeper and his wife are watching out for him and will call on a Mooner to save his life and small fortune. This was a really good, creepy read.
Bill has his life planned out: earn a fast paycheck in logging, get out of town, and settle down with a new wife. Big John, however, has other plans for his friend. When the two enter Red's Saloon, everything changes. A mysterious recluse has a proposition for the two men. Bill must figure out how to satiate the recluse's strong thirst, or he might lose everything he's worked for.
MOONER builds the tension to a surprise ending. Janel does a brilliant job making readers feel like they're in this late 19th century saloon in a cold logging town. The dialogue felt realistic. A few of the characters were a bit clichéd, such as Big John, but I enjoyed how the story progressed. The creepiness seeps into the pages. The mention of the Mooners is brilliantly placed, and the creation of this vampire-like creature is fascinating. For me, some of the details slowed the pace at the beginning, but it picked right up to the very end.
MOONER by Selah Janel creates a tense horror leaning toward the psychological and building up to a gory ending. It's a quick and fun read.
