Publisher's Summary

The people of High Moor are united in horror at the latest tragedy to befall their small town. As dawn breaks, the town is left to count the cost and mourn its dead, while breathing a collective sigh of relief.

John Simpson, the apparent perpetrator of the horrific murders, is in police custody. The nightmare is over.

Isn't it?

Detective Inspector Phil Fletcher and his partner, Constable Olivia Garner, have started to uncover some unsettling evidence during their investigations of John Simpson's past - evidence that supports his impossible claims: that he is a werewolf, and will transform on the next full moon to kill again.

However a new threat is now lurking in the shadows. A mysterious group have arrived in High Moor, determined to keep the existence of werewolves hidden. And they will do anything to protect their secret. Anything at all...

    "More bite than bark."
    Would you consider the audio edition of High Moor 2: Moonstruck to be better than the print version?

    I definitely would, being out and about at work doesn't really give me much time to read on breaks and being a father of a demanding 3yr old takes up more time at home.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of High Moor 2: Moonstruck?

    A stand out moment would be the breakout/assassination attempt on john after the court hearing, the author inserted a wee soul tug moment (but i wont spoil it for you)


    Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the third audiobook I've heard by Chris Barnes, this being a sequel to one. The narrator once again goes to prove that an audiobook done properly can be a great benefit to an author. His style and flow are once again spot on with a nice clear rich tone to his story telling and good voice acting thrown in, the recording is crystal clear and I feel that he is growing in confidence in his abilities and following him on social media know he is improving his recording facilities all the time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    MORE BITE THAN BARK.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for something new to listen to, check out this (obviously book one first) and if there is a sequel to this hopefully Chris Barnes will be producing/narrating it again.

    Graeme Reynolds keep up the good work, a great series of books and cant wait to see what comes next.

    "Moral of the story- Don't piss off a werewolf."
    What did you love best about High Moor 2: Moonstruck?

    This is a fantastic sequel! Full of action and gore- just the way I like it. The main focus is on the werewolves this time around and it works out perfectly. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next book, and find out what Graeme Reynolds has in store for the wolves.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of High Moor 2: Moonstruck?

    Olivia. That's all I'm going to say.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my second book by Barnes, the first High Moor got me hooked. Chris has an absolutely amazing voice, and his accent is perfect for this story. He has the characters spot on, and does the emotions and excitement of the book extremely well.

    "Moonstruck Dead and Loving It!"
    If you could sum up High Moor 2: Moonstruck in three words, what would they be?

    Bloody. Good. Listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything about this book. It's the sequel I wanted and then some. No spoilers here!


    Have you listened to any of Chris Barnes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is the fourth story I've listened to with Chris Barnes narrating. Every time I listen, he gets better and better. He has a knack for bringing the written word to life and immersing you into the story where you forget about everything else going on around you.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Run. Don't stop. Just run.

    The third book needs to hurry the hell up!

    Gory
    Gripping
    Heartbreaking


    What was one of the most memorable moments of High Moor 2: Moonstruck?

    Olivia vs Connie


    What does Chris Barnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the accents he does. The narrator has a wonderful way of bringing the characters to life, and really letting the reader feel the 'setting'. In my head they would have sounded different.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between John and Marie. But there were many points that tugged at my heart strings.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful read. I never liked werewolves too much, only read this because a friend recommended it, but I might have actually changed my mind after these books. Great work by the author and the narrator added an extra layer of awesome.

    "This is What a Werewolf Story Should Be"

    Often times I compare many second books in a series to The Empire Strikes Back, story climax was early, then much of the story and character building is for the next part of the trilogy, that’s exactly what happened here. Picking up immediately where High Moor left of, letting us know what happens after the final battle of the previous book. While the Moonstruck John Simpson is the main suspect in a series of brutal murders, the werewolf clan has sent a, for lack of a better term, hit squad to clean up any and all loose ends, and Simpson is one of those loose ends. Reynolds was able to keep the same feeling, the gut wrenching, the brutality, the violence and gore, keeping the horror feel to the story, instead of a cutesie paranormal story. There was a ton more werewolf action than the first book, which I appreciated greatly. Along with a few plot twists that I did not see coming. If you were a fan of the first book you must give this a listen. If you have listened to neither and are looking for an original story to disturb your soul, full of action, brutal violence, and yes even some humor and love, you must listen to this series.

    My review for: Moonstruck (book two of High Moor) by Graeme Reynolds
    Read by: Chris Barnes
    My rating: 5 out of 5 stars


    This series just gets better and better. Being a huge fan of horror, I was intrigued when I first picked up the High Moor series by Graeme Reynolds but by the end of the book two, I am totally addicted to his style of writing! Pairing up again with narrator- extraordinaire, Chris Barnes, Moonstruck, the continuation of this series is a fast-paced, gore-filled horror show. And I do say that in the best way possible.

    With Moonstruck starting right where it left off in High Moor and the aftermath of that explosive ending, John Simpson finds himself in quite the predicament. In the light of day, John is painted as a blood-thirsty monster that kills without regrets and the media is eating it up especially when he claims to be a werewolf. After the horrific murders that rocked the small town of High Moor, the whole town is on edge and wanting justice. But while their focus is on the only suspect they have in custody, a more deadlier threat stalks the shadows. And with a false sense of security, no one is safe from the beasts that will do anything to keep their existence hidden…

    Graeme’s dark and twisted style of horror is a perfect match for the very skilled talent of voice artist, Chris Barnes. It never ceases to amaze me the incredibly professional recordings Dynamic Ram Audio Productions produces. From all of the sound effects like the muffled radio or walkie talkies that completely sets the mood and makes it impossible to stop listening! I really can’t wait for book three! There better be a book three! Amazing series.

    "Amazing Second Book."
    Any additional comments?

    This was even better than the first, and that's saying something!! I loved book 1 but this surpassed it. Don't read the next paragraph if you haven't read book 1 because there are unavoidable spoilers in it!!

    When we left book 1, John was captured and accused of multiple murders, Maria was in the morgue, presumably dead and Steven is turning into the thing he despises the most. Michael and his pack of Werewolves are coming though and no one is safe. They have to protect the secret no matter what, even if it means killing his own sister. First things first, they have to kill Sampson before he turns in the prison!!

    Once again, Graeme Reynolds brings his A game to play. I usually find that book 2 is mainly a filler book, if you get my meaning. In most cases, not much happens in a second book, but that's not the case here. Reynolds upped his game and this book is so much better than the first. He ramped up everything, more action, more Werewolves, more character development, more violence and a lot more twists. He even introduces more characters and manages to wrench out our hearts with what happens to them!

    Everything about this book, and indeed the previous book, is amazing. The action starts straight away and never lets up, the characters have so much depth that it's hard not to like each one, and the author put so much into the book, that it shows. The different Werewolves was, again, fascinating and I loved finding out more about them. Everything about the book was captivating and engrossing.

    Again, the author doesn't shy away from violence and gore, nor does he shy away from killing off characters, which I loved. The story is dark but deliciously so! I so want to see these books made into a movie because I think they would rock.

    Anyway, I could keep gushing about the book but I may spoil things so I'll stop! All I'll say is Go Buy This NOW. You will not be disappointed.

    I listened to the audio and once again Chris Barnes delivered. Like the first, he really knows when to add tension and when to pull back. He draws you into the story and makes you a part of it. If you are looking for some new audio books then check out his work!

    "Another Winner!"
    What did you love best about High Moor 2: Moonstruck?

    The story was brilliant and the narration really brought every aspect to life.


    What other book might you compare High Moor 2: Moonstruck to and why?

    High Moor 2 is the sequel to High Moor. It has more action than its predecessor and continues the story beautifully. Since I don't typically read werewolf stories, I really don't have anything else to compare it to.


    Which character – as performed by Chris Barnes – was your favorite?

    Gregorz and Oskar were two Russian characters that had similar, yet slightly different personalities. When Chris narrated these two characters, it was easy to forget there wasn't another person in the room with him, voicing these two characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is one particularly brutal scene, about halfway through the book, that was very emotional and disturbing. I'm glad Graeme didn't shy away from that moment, but it was still difficult to listen to, and touching when it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    Like High Moor, High Moor 2 is intense, brutal, and spellbinding. It's well-written, and narrated beautifully and has characters you love and characters you love to hate. This is how werewolves should be done.

    "Bone crunchingly good"
    What made the experience of listening to High Moor 2: Moonstruck the most enjoyable?

    Graeme Reynolds has stepped it up a notch since originally introducing us to the werewolves of High Moor. Moonstruck still has a great storyline but this time, the action rules over it. This isn't a bad thing, not at all. The action scenes are gruesome and bloody and just what you need from this type of book.


    What does Chris Barnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As much as I love the sound of my own voice, Chris Barnes brings something new. I can't pull off a Newcastle accent, Barnes can. I can't speak with a believably feminine tone, Barnes can. From Russian, to English, to Scottish, to Romanian, Barnes has got it all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not only was it a book I wanted to listen to all in one sitting, it was good enough for me to complete 'High Moor' and 'High Moor 2: Moonstruck' in two days. Great fun.
