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.
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!!!
This is not great literature, or even a particularly haunting tale. There were elements of the plot that seem contrived and forced. This is particularly evident in the light treatment the writer gives the rape of one of the female protagonists. Throughout the book female sexuality is treated in a shallow and used only for sensationalistic effect. This distanced me from the characters and kept me from being drawn into the story. Still, the book does manage to entertain, much like a good B-movie. There are worse ways to kill a rainy day.
