REVIEW

"Another winning story by this writing team"

Moon's Web is the second book by this writing team (Hunter's Moon was the first,) and it is another winner.

Tony Giodone, former hit man for mob, now a werewolf, has moved with his human mate, Sue, to Chicago. Because of the events in the first book, Tony and Sue have gone into a shape-shifter-protection-program and have become members of Nikoli Molotov's Sazi clan.

It's not easy for Tony, a formerly alpha-human to become the lowest wolf on the totem pole, and he quickly comes up against Nikoli's rough justice for dumping his assigned omega duties to another lowly wolf. His punishment? Being subjected to an attack by Nikoli's enforcer Asri, a were- Komodo dragon. Only Bobby Mbutu, the Wolven agent and were- python, manages to convince Nikoli not to hurt Tony too badly, because he has a job for Tony - - to find out who has been killing Sazi and to find Carmine's mistress Babs, the werewolf who'd changed Tony.

As Tony, Bobby and Asri hunt for the threat to the Sazi way of life, the day-to-day interactions of the Sazi and the incandescently hot romances between the characters are deftly woven into the fabric of the story.

Adams and Clamp write a really rollicking good time of a book. The action is fast, the plotting is solid, and Tony and his friends, associates and enemies are totally believable within the context of the Sazi world. The authors have managed a great ending hook into the next in this series -- and I can't wait to see how Tony adjusts to his new job.

SUMMARY

Tony Giodone made his living as an assassin—until one of his marks ripped his throat out and turned him into a werewolf. Now he's the best hired killer there is.

When a curvy woman in an expensive suit tries to hire him to kill her, his wolf senses insist that she is his mate. One kidnapping, a plethora of gunfights, a psychic coma, and two faked deaths later, Tony and Sue have new identities and are hiding in a community of Sazi shapeshifters. All seems well, until Sue begins to pull away from Tony and he realizes that if he can't be more open with her, he's going to lose her.

To add to his problems, Tony is getting flashes of other peoples' lives. He doesn't know if they're memories or fantasies—but he wants it to stop, because he's learning things he shouldn't about his friends and neighbors.

What's more dangerous than a psychic-powered werewolf assassin? Whatever it is, it's kidnapping and killing female Sazi . . . after it sucks out their powers. Its latest captive is the girlfriend of Carmine, the Mafia don who used to be Tony's boss. To get her back, Carmine will make war on all the Sazi—and while the Sazi would win, they can't afford to be exposed to humans. Now it's up to Tony to save Carmine's girlfriend—and all of the Sazi.

He could really use the help of Bobby, the python member of Wolven, but Bobby is a bit preoccupied. It seems that Chicago's pack enforcer, Asri Kho, a deadly Komodo Dragon on the full moon, makes his knees weak. That is, whenever she's not trying to kill him.
