Fifteen-year-old Rachel Stone and her family move into historic Seasonstown House. Then the terror begins - fires, intruders who leave no footprints, the frenzied destruction of the library. Who, or what, wants the Stones out . The police suspect terrorists, but is it something far more sinister? When Rachel tries to discover the truth she gets caught up in a wild and dangerous plot. At Hallowe'en, nightmare becomes reality, when the unimaginable horror of an ancient curse comes to claim the family of Seasonstown House - and all that stands in its way is Rachel and a green-eyed wolf.

About the Author:

Michael Scott is an internationally-published and award-winning author of numerous books for children, teens and adults. Born and brought up in Dublin, Michael has spent all his life with books. He worked in various bookshops and was an antiquarian bookseller before turning to writing. His first book appeared in 1981, and he has had up to sixty books published since then. Michael has a special interest in mythology and fantasy and his books for young readers include stories from Celtic mythology, fairy tales, horror and the supernatural: The Last of the Fianna, The Seven Treasures, House of the Dead, October Moon, and Wolf Moon as well as the Virtual Reality thriller, Gemini Game. Michael Scott's books for adults include horror and the novel Lottery. OCTOBER MOON was the first in the O'Brien Press OTHERWORLD Series which covers fantasy, horror, magic, the supernatural and science fiction. It was followed by a sequel entitled WOLF MOON. October Moon caused the RTE Guide to call Michael Scott "The Master of Scariness" and from Orson Scott Card, world-famous fantasy writer: "A compelling story of dread, Scott is the master of the naturally unfolding mystery, and the tension never lets up". Married, with two children, Michael Scott lives in Dublin.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-When 15-year-old Rachel Stone's wealthy parents purchase a stable in Ireland, complete with a 400-year-old house, the family goes there to look over the property. Immediately, mysterious events begin to occur. Occasional glimpses of shadowy creatures let readers know that something horrible and dangerous is lurking in the wings. As the plot unfolds, Rachel learns that a clan of ancient werewolves seeks to pass their curse on to her family on Halloween. Cliff-hanging chapter endings contribute to the suspense. The horror is intensified because the true nature of the attackers remains somewhat vague through much of the story. Characters are not particularly well developed. Rachel is brave and plucky in a manner reminiscent of Nancy Drew. The police are conveniently skeptical, and everything is a bit melodramatic. However, the action moves along at such a brisk clip that none of this really matters. A clever, ironic ending saves the story from being too pat. A sure bet for readers who like their adventures scary and on the gruesome side.
