Red Moonby Benjamin Percy
Synopses & Reviews
"A werewolf epic. Can't stop thinking about it." —Stephen King
They live among us.
They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers.
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.
"Percy has a lusty flair for describing destruction....When Claire and Patrick take the field, the book lights up, and the writing possesses a resonant, emotional honesty....The story is imaginative and lots of fun, and it will deservedly charm many readers." Justin Cronin, New York Times Book Review
"Atmospheric....While some writers of paranormal novels wrap their creatures in romance and comic subplots, Percy has chosen a darker, more literary path. Red Moon is a morality tale cloaked in fur, fangs and social injustice. Werewolves are the monsters in the story, but the bête noire is humanity's moral decline." USA Today
"Red Moon is a serious, politically symbolic novel — a literary novel about lycanthropes. If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it." John Irving
"Percy is an ace world-builder, creating a massive cast of characters and a surprisingly believable alternate history....Devastating and darkly funny." Entertainment Weekly
