A Gothic fantasy set on a college campus from the author of Wylding Hall Sweeney Cassidy is the typical college freshman at the University of the Archangels and St. John the Divine in Washington, DC. She drinks. She parties. And she certainly doesn’t suspect that underneath its picturesque Gothic façade, the university is a haven for the Benandanti, a cult devoted to suppressing the powerful and destructive Moon Goddess. But everything is about to change as Sweeney learns that her two new best friends are the goddess’ Chosen Ones. Rich and engrossing, Waking the Moon is a seductive postfeminist thriller that delves into an ancient feud, where the real and magical collide, and one woman is forced to make a decision that will change the world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blending the ancient with the modern, the fantastic with the real, Hand has created a violently sensual fable helped by smart pacing and vibrant prose.” Publishers Weekly
“Superior. An author worth watching, not to mention recommending.” Booklist
“Elegantly written…Lush and decadent…A marvelous fantasy thriller” Denver Post
“Hand is a superior stylist.” New York Times Book Review
“An ambitious, erotically charged thriller” Clive Barker, New York Times bestselling author
“The unstoppable narrative just might make Waking the Moon a cult classic. Literally” Spin
“A potent socioerotic ghost story for our looming millennium rooted in ancient nightlands of myth and next week’s politics of gender. Hand’s high-resolution narrative never falters.” William Gibson, New York Times bestselling author
