about

"A werewolf epic. Can't stop thinking about it."--Stephen King

They live among us.

They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers.

They change.

When government agents kick down Claire Forrester's front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is.

Patrick Gamble was nothing special until the day he got on a plane and hours later stepped off it, the only passenger left alive, a hero.

Chase Williams has sworn to protect the people of the United States from the menace in their midst, but he is becoming the very thing he has promised to destroy.

So far, the threat has been controlled by laws and violence and drugs. But the night of the red moon is coming, when an unrecognizable world will emerge...and the battle for humanity will begin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it I'm scared of werewolves and I wanted to be scared reading this but I just wasn't. I guess that might be a point the author was trying to make but meh. I found this book extremely long and just skimmed a few of the later chapters. There were parts that I really did like but it just dragged for too much of it for me to enjoy it. I'd like a more personalized story. I'm on the fence as to whether I'd recommend this or not. Since I can't imagine ever reading it again myself I'll say no.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read!!! As soon as I saw Stephen King's name on the front cover extolling this book, my curiosity was piqued. And I was not disappointed. Benjamin Percy's post-9/11 novel about a divided world of humans and lycans serves as a metaphor for society's issues dealing with minority rights, paranoia and terrorism. The book is long but the characters are well-written, the landscapes are vivid and the realistic overtures mirror our present fears as featured on the nightly news. Cannot wait to read more stuff from this author. After all, Stephen King is rarely wrong. 'Red Moon' is one of the best fiction books I have read in a long time. Read it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh! Felt like i was reading a book in the middle of a series. Not enough of a background story. Jumped all over the place. Very forgetful read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drags Very political and seems to take forever to reach the point. It also ends on a pretty lame note.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Esquire was right.. I enjoy this book very much and it has my most favorite monster of all in it. The back story is so interesting and intriguing that u get engross in the book. The story has a serious terrorist theme and a country which it's inhabitants are werewolves. There are two sides on the werewolves who are against the US for the US government is trying tame the werewolves with a drug that makes the werewolves more tangible to comply to the US government. The second group don't want to partake in violent protest as their so called leader Balor wants them too. The US and those who agree to the massacre of the Lycans are no better than those Lycans who follows Balor in almost destroying civilization. It's a good read and everyone would enjoy this book very much.

Editorial Reviews

"There's no other way to say it: Benjamin Percy has written a stunner, a genre-bending novel of suspense and terror but with Percy's usual force-of-nature language and his deep insights into character. I cannot recommend this novel highly enough, nor could I put it down."-Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, Hell at the Breech and Poachers
