Woah. That's the only word to describe Hand's mythological thriller. A novel that takes the wonder and intensity of the first month of being a college freshman and turns it into a lifetime of chaos. Equally tragic, terrifying, and engrossing, the book starts starts in the academy but finds that truth and despair are real-world disciplines. Hand's mastery of setting and her rich prose make the reader feel in the moment, whether in the sweltering D.C. summer or on an abandoned archaeological dig in Eastern Europe. And I haven't even mentioned the fascinating gendered themes and the rereading of ancient cultic practices into modern context. If you can settle in to her lush style, Hand will show you what the darkness in the moon is all about.
