Candle Bay is a small, isolated California coastal town where the Darling family of vampires live and peacefully run The Candle Bay Hotel and Spa. But now the Dantes, a rival vampire clan, have returned to seek vengeance for a century-old grievance. They intend to make Candle Bay all their own...even if it means spilling human and vampire blood.

This was the first novel I ready by Tamara Thorne. It kept me hooked to the very last page and is an entertaining read with a smooth flow. She has a very smooth writing style and her writing is crisp and clear.
Be WARNED: Tamara is not some feminist horror writer who writes what is politically correct. She is a much better writer than Anne Rice, who OVER-WRITES! Tamara paints a bloody and sexy read that keeps you wanting to read to the very end.
Tamara is a very nice person who RESPONDS to fan mail. She is witty, funny, and very left wing. Her writing has gotten better with each novel and she continues to come up with new and original ideas; not overused cliched plots.
Two thumbs up for this story about Sara Hawthorne who returns home to teach at a girl's school. Strange things start to happen and a budding romance with the police chief make things erotically charged. The two collaborate on how to stop the EVIL taking place at the school and the ending is shocking!!
Keep 'em coming, Tamara!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tamara Thorne hasn't disappointed me yet! July 29 2002
By Tigger
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't say enough good things about Tamara Thorne. The first book of hers that I read, "Haunted", remains one of my favorite books of all time. Moonfall delivers another great story, a compelling account of St. Gertrude's (better know as St. Gruesome's), a Catholic girls' school that isn't at all what it seems, complete with terrifying nuns, local legends, witches, gargoyles that come to life in the night, and nasty, evil secrets.
Thorne (a pseudonym) is one of the better modern horror writers out there, and deserves far more attention than she receives. Unfortunately, the horror genre is the least popular of all genres in the U.S., (a puzzle I still haven't figured out), so she's in a tough market. Why she hasn't won a Stoker award is beyond me, because she certainly deserves one. Her stories are original, well-written, and entertaining from word one. I recently bought the rest of her books (Eternity, Candle Bay, and Bad Things), as well, and can't wait to read them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good, solid and highly entertaining horror story but shies away (as I do) from the too-intense, too-dark tales of King and Barker (though both King and Barker are undeniably fantastic authors). The entertainment factor is simply off the charts!

4.0 out of 5 stars Creatures Of Habit July 5 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Strange accidents and the odd suicide are not that uncommon in the idyllic little Southern California mountain town of Moonfall. Every quarter century, they even come in pairs. Funny thing, though - no one's ever that clear on the particulars concerning them. It's almost as if their memories are partially blocked. And the official records don't always jibe with what people do remember. The deaths always seem to occur around St. Gertrude's School for Girls, that creepy place with the gargoyles on its ramparts. Oh, but surely a bunch of nuns couldn't have anything to do with murder - now, could they?
This is a nice, simple, straightforward little horror story, made all the livelier by Tamara Thorne's likeable and believable characters and her usual wicked sense of perverse humor. The plot is nothing you haven't seen before, it's just very well done. It has witches and warlocks, secrets and sacrifices, devils and demons, horrors and hypnosis, and perverse nuns in shocking undergarments.
What's not to love?
The only problem with this book is that its ending is a bit abrupt and anticlimactic for such a well-sustained buildup, but it's quite good in spite of that. Thorne always writes well. Even her villains are entertaining - those in Moonfall, especially. I recommend all of her books, without hesitation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let this one fall away.... March 28 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first book I read from Tamara Thorne was Haunted. I enjoyed that book so much, I rushed out and got Moonfall. What a disappointment!!!! Gone was the fast-paced, struggle of good and evil that kept me so glued in Haunted. I found this book boring, lacking the excitement and creepy crawlers that I fully expected. I trudged through this book just waiting for it to be over with, not caring much what happened to the characters and almost cheering for the satanic nuns with garter belts to kill them all! Don't start with this book, go for another one of hers instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Would Make A Good Movie June 27 2001
By Deanna
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read this book twice and will read it again. I get something new each time I read it. I love her characters and would like to see them on the big screen. Any movie made from this book should follow the book completely. I am very picky about what I read and this one is great. Very hard for me to put down. I can't even think of a boring part in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Follow Up to Haunted May 8 2001
By "leh75"
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first book I read by Tamara Thorne was Haunted and I loved it! I was also impressed with her second book, Moonfall. Although Moonfall was not as scary as Haunted and the story is not original, it was still well put together and suspensful. Also, the dialogue between the kids in this book was so funny and realistic that often times I read the book with a grin on my face. The pace in this book is good. You get enough background on each character but not too much that it slows down the story. I have not been dissapointed by Tamara Thorne so far and I'm looking forward to reading her next book, Eternity.
