Moonfall by Vanessa Morton
When sixteen-year-old Rachav drinks the Moon Temple’s forbidden wine, she hardly expects it to result in the death of a priestess. But when King Nur orders Rachav to serve the Queen of the Night—the kingdom’s powerful goddess—as restitution, Rachav’s identical twin, Zaron, has her own reasons for joining the priesthood and offers to take her twin’s place.
But choices have consequences.
Now Rachav’s family is in danger. As she uncovers the shocking reason why, she finds an ally in Salma, a brooding nomad who wields an ancient force powerful enough to destroy the entire kingdom. While the epic showdown rages above the city, Rachav plays a dangerous game of her own. Can she rescue her sister and right the wrongs of that fateful choice? Or will the king succeed and trap her in the doomed city?
Today, Vanessa is going to chat about Moonfall on the Big Screen. Take it away, Vanessa!
I’d be thrilled to see Moonfall made into a movie (and in case there are any producers reading this, the major characters are shown on my Pinterest board)! I haven’t pinned the Queen of the Night, though, and after reading Moonfall, you’ll know why. A goddess gone wild … that’s how some readers have described her.
I first met the Queen of the Night at the British Museum. Also known as Ishtar, she was the sexual goddess of love and war. If Moonfall makes it to the big screen, Ishtar needs a strong actress to carry her! She’s evanescent, seductive, and deadly.
Rachav—Moonfall’s heroine—and her identical twin Zaron, are near opposite personalities. Each one embodies opposing elements within the Queen of the Night.
Either Gloria Estefan or Salma Hayek could portray the twins. I hope readers will comment with their favorite!
Salma—shown without his shirt—is the male lead, but Nuzi (on the right) was Rachav’s first crush. Who will she choose? Neither Rachav nor readers will figure it out until late in the book, but both of these guys are hunks … which one would you choose?
I would love to hear from readers!
