When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror.
John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life.
It’s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods. When Sergeant Steven Wilkinson begins an investigation, with the help of a specialist hunter, he soon realises that this is no ordinary animal attack. Werewolves are real, and the trail of bodies is just beginning, with young John and his friends smack in the middle of it.
Twenty years later, John returns to High Moor. The latest attack involved one of his childhood enemies, but there’s more going on than meets the eye. The consequences of his past actions, the reappearance of an old flame and a dying man who will either save or damn him are the least of his problems. The night of the full moon is approaching and time is running out. But how can he hope to stop a werewolf, when every full moon he transforms into a bloodthirsty monster himself?

A 'howling' good time!
The story is well written and highly engaging. Chris Barnes brings it to life with his top-notch performances. From start to finish, the story is gripping, edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. It's hard to push the stop button and go about regular life.
I'd compare it to Twilight if only to highlight what a werewolf-or any supernatural novel-is supposed to be. Werewolves are supposed to bite, they're supposed to claw, they're supposed to rip people in half with no moral conscience whatsoever. They are not supposed to protect people from vampires or a seventeen year old girl who can't develop her way out of a brown paper bag.
High Moor delivers on the good stuff. The bloody stuff.
Tonia Brown's THE COLD BENEATH. This performances far surpasses the other.
Creepy and heart-pounding! Adore this narrator!
My review for: High Moor by Graeme Reynolds
Narrator: Chris Barnes from Dynamic Ram Audio
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars (if I could give more, I would)
Where do I begin? This is my first time reading Graeme Reynolds and I wasn’t disappointed. He has nailed the whole horror gory, fast paced thriller and nailed it well.
In the 1986, a strange beast stalked High Moor and its residents. With the death of a young boy and the horrific state of his body, the law enforcement knew they were dealing with a predator unlike any they have ever encountered and that they needed to call in the big dogs so to speak…
American hunter, Carl Schneider has been hunting these creatures for more than half his life. When the call came from the UK that there had been a boy killed, tore to ribbons, he knew what had done it. And he knew how to stop. With the help of Sergeant Steven Wilkinson, they try and hunt the creature down. And as the bodies pile up, it is clear that whatever is in the woods in High Moor isn’t your average dog. It’s something preternatural and its bloodlust can’t be slaked.
The plot was a mix of terror and raw emotions of adolescence and it flowed seamlessly between scene to scene as the horror played out. It’s brilliantly written with an ending that will shock you and have you wanting more. So much more.
Chris Barnes brings the story to life in an amazing ways. While his natural Scottish accent is one of my personal favorites, he’s a master at all dialects. But the difference with Chris and other male narrators that I have come across is the change in voices. You can clearly tell who is talking just by listening the change in pitch. The professionalism of the actual recording is beyond impressive, from the actual crackling of a CB radio to the muffled sound of a radio program in the background, it totally makes the narration into a full on performance. It is very easy to get lost into such a reading and in my humble opinion, Chris Barnes is a voice artist to look out for. Here’s hoping that he will read book two of this incredible series. Fantastic reader, fantastic writer. I loved it.
