The war has begun...As the humans make their move against the werewolf threat in their midst, and civil war threatens to break the pack apart, John and Marie struggle to free the only person who can unite the werewolf factions against their common enemy: Marie's brother, Michael. However, their efforts may be for nothing. As tensions mount, the Moonborn prepare to combat the human aggression with an assault of their own; an attack that could spell doom for both man and werewolf alike.

High Moor 3: Blood Moon picks up right where Moonstruck left off. Daniel moves in with John and Marie, and together, they have to rescue their pack alpha and Marie’s brother Michael from a military hospital.
Thanks to the actions of the now-deceased Connie Hamilton, all of Europe knows of the werewolves’ existence and in order to survive, a battle ensues between werewolf and human. Ports are closed and airports have special anti-werewolf security devices installed. There is no escaping Europe for the werewolves and whether the beasts are to be studied, killed or captured, all are at risk.
As Michael is held captive by the military, Lukas and Krysztof begin their ploy to help Krysztof take over as pack alpha. After he becomes the alpha of the pack, Daniel is given a mission. When he finds Marie, Michael and John, his orders are to kill them. Things begin to unravel for our werewolf friends as Daniel, along with other werewolves, plan a brutal attack on the town of High Moor and Michael and Marie try to stop the pack from tearing itself apart.
I won’t go into any more plot points, because I truly feel you need to experience this for yourself. It’s that good. Reynolds does a tremendous job of putting us right into the action in the final installment of the High Moor trilogy, and this book has everything that made the first two great: gore, violence, lovable (and not-so-lovable) characters, hyphens, plenty of “f-bombs, “and more than enough action throughout. If you’ve grown to love these characters half as much as I do, go into this book knowing that no one is safe.
I was a little concerned about this High Moor audiobook. It was a long time between the release of High Moor 2: Moonstruck and this third and final book in the series, Blood Moon, and I was afraid the narrator, Chris Barnes, after recording several other books in the interim, would have a hard time getting back into the heads of these characters after such a long hiatus. My worry was completely unfounded.
There are a lot of characters in High Moor 3. Some are British, some are German, and some are from other countries. Barnes nails each accent of each character perfectly. Michael, John and Marie sound just as I remembered them, and even Daniel, Lukas and Krysztof are perfect. The listener is never left wondering which character is speaking at any given time. Barnes brilliantly adjusts the volume and pacing of his narrative to match the scenes in the book and you feel everything the characters feel.
The end of the book was sad when I read it. I cried and I’m not one who cries easily. When I heard the raw emotion emanating from Chris Barnes as he read the end, well, let’s just say he upped the emotion factor 10-fold.
Werewolf fans and fans of brutal, gritty horror need to listen to this book. It will be the best 10 hours you've spent in a very long time.
Fantastic, Brilliant, Epic, Amazing, and any other word I think think of to describe this book!!!
I re-listened to book 1 and 2 before diving into this and I'm so gad I did. It brought a lot of the details fresh into my mind. Anyway, this starts straight after book 2 ends. Everyone now knows that werewolves are real, thanks to Connie, and the government are intent on wiping them out. Drastic measures are taking place and any werewolf found is thrown into a camp. Of course, the wolves don't take this lightly so war is inevitable.
It's hard to say too much about the plot in case of spoilers, but I will say that it's as deliciously dark as ever. As I said in previous reviews, this isn't a shifter book, this is a down and dirty and gory read. The wolves are brutal and tear people apart. This edition is as action packed and tense as ever. The author also adds in a pretty intense and sad event that tore my heart out. I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through.
The characters, as always, were well written and developed and it's phenomena that the author can make you care so much for so many characters.. All our favourites are back and in trouble, as always ;) We even get some interesting new ones.
I started listening to this and couldn't take out my ear phones. The pace of the book is incredibly quick but so engrossing. There is so much happening in this book that I know I will relisten to it soon, just to savour it all again. The series as a whole is incredible and this author is one to watch. A satisfying conclusion to the series, though I do hope we haven't seen the last of these characters.
Once again, Chris Barnes performance was flawless. He has such an amazing range of vocals and accents, which he portrays in this perfectly. He was able to inject the right amount of emotion at the right time,to make this story come alive. An excellent performance for a brilliant book!
