When amateur astronomer Jason Blake and his son are out star-gazing one night, thousands of meteors suddenly fill the sky. Some of them fall nearby, but when Jason and Ritchie go to investigate, they are attacked by a werewolf-like creature, and Ritchie is injured.
This is a novel of relationships, of apocalyptic adventure, and very personal sacrifice. Fast-paced and gaining speed with each minute, Moonbane is a poetic novel that works on a number of unexpected levels, running the gamut from taut suspense to outright mayhem.

“Al Sarrantonio’s Moonbane is a stylish B-movie of a novel. Fast paced and poetic, and scary in the old-fashioned sense of such fine B-chillers as The Cat People and I Walked With a Zombie.” (Joe R. Lansdale)
My taste vary. I love a good, blood stained horror, but also a well written kids story. Lots of Sci-Fi, but also Hist. Fiction. No boring!!!
Terrible, bad. Bad writing, old stupid plot, not good. Bad, bad, bad, bad, got to get to 15 words.
Amazingly bad. The five star review must have come from someone at the publishing house. The narrator mispronounces simple words. He actually says "imperceftivly". He also drops out of character in places. If you could get beyond the narration you would still have a laughable horror/sci-fi. Crazy plot combined with dialogue that reads like Shaft vs. the Werewolves. This should be reclassified under comedy. Nothing redeeming here. You have been warned!
