Review of Bane County: Forgotten Moon
July 8, 2016
Maybe it is not the best werewolf horror I've read, but it is damn close to it.
Bryce McNeel and his cousin an best friend, Jackson, live in Bane County. It is 1991 and the start of their last year of high school. September is also the month of the harvest moon--the one that only happens every nineteenth years. A beasts rises from one of the abandoned silver mines in the Refuge, a National wildlife refuge. It stalks prey; not deer or fowl, but humans. It relishes prey that can beg for it life, meaning that this is no ordinary beast like bear or mountain lion or wolf, but something out of man's legends and myths. Like in succeeding years of this harvest moon , people are killed and eaten, what is left found, while others vanished without trace. And Bryce began reading up on werewolves and legends and even formulates a scientific theory of something that may be an unknown creature that inspired these legends. It is obvious this theory will lead to the sequel.
As a horror author myself and the werewolf and other shapeshifters my favorite supernatural beings (along with ghosts, of course), I always enjoy a different way of writing the werewolf story. Like The Wolfen by Whitley Strieber, where another race of intelligent beings live with us on this planet, and no doubt, behind the legend of the werewolf. J. R. Rice did it sort of this way, twisting it to be his own story.
Want something to scare you? Then Banes County: Forgotten Moon will get your heart racing and maybe even have you double-check to make sure your doors and windows are locked. So grab something silver and visit Bane County for a hair raising time.
