"Another fascinating peek into the Sazi world!"

Once again, we find ourselves in the world of the Sazi. Only this time, we're visiting with the werecats. Councilmember Antoine Monier has been forced into performing with his cats in order to hold onto his estate in France. After filing all the necessary paperwork when one of his cats goes missing, Antoine finds himself with the police outside of town. He can smell the slaughter, and of course, Simon is one of the corpses. While talking to the police, Antoine finds out they're holding a female, so he uses a bit of his Sazi magic and goes to the station. Once there, he can smell the female is a werecat, but different somehow. Rescuing the female just in time so she doesn't end up changing, Antoine loads her up in the van. It turns out the female is one Antoine has been seeing in his visions (yes, he's a seer) for quite some time now; her name is Tahira Kuric and she's a member of the Hayalet Kabile. The Sazi have wanted friendly relations with the Hayalet for quite some time now, but it just hasn't come about.

The last thing Tahira can remember before Antoine rescued her, was being captured by the same men who took her took her brother, Rabi. When Rabi didn't show up in their grandparents' village, Tahira's grandmother told Tahira she would be able to find him. Of course, she lost a couple months during her capture. Tahira is determined to find her brother and so, she asks for Antoine's help. Since Antoine is the rex cat, he has resources available to him Tahira cannot even imagine. With Antoine being Sazi, Tahira does her best to deny the attraction between the two of them.

What are these visions Antoine is having telling him? He can see Tahira in grave danger, along with others he knows. Will Antoine be able to discover what is going on and stop it? Will Antoine and Tahira be able to deny their attraction? And just where is Rabi?

CAPTIVE MOON is a mesmerizing story. C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp have once again outdone themselves with this thrilling story of the Sazi world. We are once again treated to a sneak peek, this time into the Wolven organization within the Sazi. Not only that, we get to learn about the werecat society. And when we meet Ahmad, the leader of the snakes and not a friend of the cats, we get a very unique twist to the story. As with all books by these two authors, the action is non-stop from the very first page and there are plots and subplots galore, but in this one, we have the addition of a betrayal by one close to Antoine. But this is a Tor Romance, and as such we also have our very fulfilling heartfelt sigh at the end. C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp are on my autobuy list, and with very good cause!

World-class entertainer and Sazi councilmember, Antoine Monier has taken his big cats all over the world without any trouble—until his latest trip to Stuttgart, where one of his tigers is stolen and killed. To Antoine's surprise, the German police have another tiger in custody—a tiger who is actually a lovely Turkish-American woman, Tahira Kuric.

Like Antoine, Tahira is a shapeshifter, but of the Hayalet Kabile, the ghost tribe of shapeshifters. And despite their immediate attraction, Tahira wants nothing to do with Antoine—the Sazi are the enemy of the Hayalet Kabile.

But Tahira doesn't have a choice, because she and Antoine have discovered that she is a fabled "power well," able to store magical energy from other shapeshifters—and something is hunting her, eager to use her powers for itself.

Only if they can set aside their peoples' ancient rivalry and rely completely on each other—body and soul—can Tahira and Antoine save themselves and their people.
