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!
