'A sweeping tale of dark magic, artistic obsession, and a love unbound from the limits of time' Paulette Kennedy
A vanished star. A haunted film. A mystery only love can unravel . . .

1968
Gemma Turner once dreamed of stardom, now she's on the cusp of obscurity. When a radical new horror film offers her the leading role, her luck looks set to change. Until one dark night, Gemma disappears on set and is never seen again. But this is only the beginning... Gemma has been pulled into the film itself, where the script - and the horrors within it - are more real than she ever imagined, and she must play her role perfectly if she hopes to survive.

2007
Gemma Turner's disappearance is one of Hollywood's greatest mysteries - one that's captivated film student Christopher ever since he saw the infamous L'Étrange Lune for the first time. The film is screened just once a decade, and each time there is new, impossible footage of Gemma that simply shouldn't exist. Compelled by curiosity, Christopher dares to unravel the truth. But answers to the film's mystery may leave him trapped by it forever...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Be warned! The Star and the Strange Moon will cast its spell on you. Constance Sayers has created a book of worlds within worlds. Like the main characters, the reader is irresistibly drawn into the dangerous intrigue and dark truth at the heart of the story. Highly recommended! - Paula Brackston, New York Times bestselling author

At once a sweeping tale of dark magic, artistic obsession, and a love unbound from the limits of time, The Star and the Strange Moon captivates with lush prose and moments of poignant, heartbreaking beauty. A soaring celebration of female agency and the power of free will, this is Constance Sayers at her finest - Paulette Kennedy, bestselling author of The Witch of Tin Mountain

A wonderfully creepy tale of ambition, loss, and the lure of an unsolved mystery . . . Sayers masterfully weaves a tale of multigenerational secrets, creating an enticing dance between past and present that will keep readers on edge. The psychological depth Sayers brings to the core mystery invites comparisons to Gillian Flynn - Publishers Weekly

Obsession and dark magic collide in this labyrinthine blending of horror, fantasy, romance, and a touch of mystery - Kirkus

The mystery at the heart of the novel propels the reader through the story at a lightning speed, and it gets more and more interesting as the story goes on. With the atmosphere of horror and some fantastical elements, this multi-genre read will speak to a lot of different readers - Booklist
