Lunar, by Paul Kane

A feature adaptation of the novel Lunar (currently in development stage):


It should have been the perfect evening. But for blue collar delivery man Nick Skinner, the romantic time he spent with the love of his life, Dawn, has just turned into his worst nightmare. Waking suddenly, he’s attacked by something feral in his room...and it’s not alone. The clock is frozen at just gone midnight and only certain things work—only some lights, only some vehicles. The city has become a hunting ground for the ‘loons’: humanoid creatures with claws and completely white eyes, just like the moon above that seems to be influencing them. As Nick attempts to work out what is going on in this never-ending night, he must also fight to survive. But are there any others still left alive? And what has happened to Dawn?

‘A very original, riveting tale that will force me to search out more work by this very talented writer. This story grabbed hold of me from the very first page and refused to let go. It is atmospheric, violent, and action packed. I found the characters to be fully realized and three dimensional, especially the main character, Nick. I came to care about him and the situation he found himself in, which enabled me to really lose myself in the story. Though the premise of the tale has been done countless times, Mr. Kane manages to put a fresh spin on the whole end of the world mythos. It was especially satisfying when the truth behind what had happened is finally revealed. Throughout the story, I was trying to guess what was behind the events, and I didn’t even come close. I just love it when that happens. If you are in the market for something original, well conceived, and well written, you need not look any further than Lunar by Paul Kane. I highly recommend it.’
