I just finished the Sorority trilogy and I loved it, I didn't want it to end, lol.  I want to read more of Tamara's books, but am not sure what to start next, any suggestions?  I saw in the sorority that one of the characters mentioned Moonfall and I saw that was the name of one of her books, is it similar to The Sorority? Thanks!

I've had the second and third book of that trilogy on order but haven't gotten them yet. It's excrutiating having to wait.

But Brenda, Eternity was very good by Tamara Thorne. I think that's the only other one I've read by her, but I'd recommend it.

Tamara Thorne has also published under the name Chris Curry (both are pen names).   there are 4 book under the Curry name:

Trickster

Panic

Thunder Road

and Winter Scream

 

Panic was retitled to Bad Things, and rereleased under the Thorne name (Thorne states her husband's name is Damien, an ode to the Omen).  Also, Thunder Road was released with the same title, under the Thorne name.

 

As Thorne, her works are:

The Sorority Trilogy (Merilynn, Samantha, and Eve)

Moonfall

Haunted (Originally called "Body House", you will find references to it, but it was only published as Haunted)

Candle Bay

Eternity

Bad Things (aka Panic)

and The Forgotten

I have read Panic/Bad things, and it was quite good, but I think Haunted is her best.  Candle Bay wasn't that bad either, and is centered around Vampires.

Trickster, Thunder road and Winter Scream are all TBR, so no comments there, as are Eternity and Moonfall.  I recall liking The Forgotten, but cannot honestly recall what it was about, other than TV/radio waves. 

 

Thorne also does some supernatural research, ala Ghost Hunters.

I can't comment on which ones are like the trilogy since I haven't read those yet but Haunted seems to be her most popular and I did enjoy it.  I have also read Moonfall which I enjoyed more but that's just me.  I have Eternity on my TBR and intend to read the rest of her stuff too.

Thanks Ellen, I'm going to order Eternity.

Steven, thanks so much for letting me know about her writing as Chris Curry,  I have to check and see which books are available.

Hi Lisa, I ordered Haunted and going to start it soon. 

I came across The Forgotten and have started it, so far it's good, but it did have me laughing in the first few pages.
