Overview

Moonfall, the picturesque community nestled in the mountains of Southern California, is a quaint hamlet of antique stores and craft shops run by the dedicated nuns of St. Gertrude's Home for Girls. As autumn fills the air, the townspeople prepare for the festive Halloween Haunt, Moonfall's most popular tourist attraction. Even a series of unsolved deaths over the years hasn't dimmed Moonfall's renown. Maybe because anyone who knew anything about them has disappeared.

Now, Sara Hawthorne returns to her hometown...and enters the hallowed halls of St. Gertrude's where, twelve years before, another woman died a horrible death. In Sara's old room, distant voices echo in the dark and the tormented cries of children shatter the moon-kissed night.

But that's just the beginning. For Sara Hawthorne is about to uncover St. Gertrude's hellish secret...a secret she'll carry with her to the grave...

Editorial Reviews

MidWestBookReview.com - MidWest BookReview
Tamara Thorne continues to be one of my favorite authors in the horror field. Her stories are well plotted and utterly fascinating in their detail. The scenery and history she creates in her stories is so lifelike you would almost expect to read about the events in your local paper. With the expert attention she pays to make the story come to life, she continues to raise the bar, for new and old writers, and never fails to meet or surpass that bar in her own works.
BookLovers.com - W.D. Gagliani
Tamara Thorne deftly weaves sly humor and genuine chills into the fabric of this update of "Satan's School for Girl's," blending in a generous helping of her own style of twists and turns. The chess game between the good and the bad is engrossing precisely because it's played out right up to an inexorable finale every bit as melodramatically cinematic as that of "The Exorcist" and "The Omen." Great fun.

    An awesome read

    Wowza, what a great book. It was like watching a movie. So easily visualized. Tamara showed this story so well I really felt like I was watching it. As for the ending not just perfect but can't wait for the special effects people to pull this off when they make the movie.

    Awesome!

    This story had me hooked from the beginning to the end. It was extremely intense, scene by scene. As for the ending, it was just perfect. Not what I expected but better. I really hope this gets made into a movie cause I will be first in line for tickets.

    A Page Turner

    I was engulfed in this book from the beginning. I was actually afraid to sleep with the lights off!! However I was slighly disapointed by the ending, it seemed so generic, I could have pretty much told you how the book would end before I read the last chapter. Overall, Moonfall was great. Sara Hawthorne has a new loyal reader, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
