They live amongst us. They are your neighbour, your mother, your lover. You think they are safe. They change.
Every teenage girl thinks she's different. When government agents kick down Claire Forrester's front door and murder her parents, Claire realises 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. President Chase Williams has sworn to eradicate the menace. Unknown to the electorate, however, he is becoming the very thing he has sworn to destroy. Each of them is caught up in a war that so far has been controlled with laws and violence and drugs. But an uprising is about to leave them damaged, lost, and tied to one another for ever.
The night of the red moon is coming, when an unrecognizable world will emerge, and the battle for humanity will begin.
"Benjamin Percy is one of the most gifted and versatile writers to appear in American publishing in years.... His prose has the masculine power of Ernest Hemingway's, but also the sensibilities and compassion of Eudora Welty. His writing is like a meeting of Shakespeare and rock 'n' roll. Benjamin Percy knows how to keep it in E-major, and what a ride it is." (James Lee Burke, author of Feast Day of Fools)
“With Red Moon one of our most blazingly gifted young writers stakes his claim to national attention. Benjamin Percy has one great advantage over most writers who attempt "literary horror": he understands the literature of real horror from the inside out, and he speaks it like a native. This is a novel with the power to thrill and transport, also to lead the reader well out of her comfort zone and into emotional territory few people have ever seen." (Peter Straub)

Lost the plot
Gothic horror story
I wouldn't choose another book by Benjamin Percy.
The story was bad enough, but (sorry Mr Percy) the delivery was so slow, every sentence drawn out for gothic effect, it almost succeeded in putting me to sleep.
No, I found the pace of the delivery, milking the 'atmosphere' into thick slurry, extremely boring.
Most of the totally unnecessary graphic gore, descriptive death scenes...
I can't recommend this book. Can I delete it from my library?
