"Fantastic Shapeshifter story!"

Once again, we're back in Tony's world of werewolves and WOLVEN. When we pick up this story, Tony is now living in Chicago and is a part of the Nikoli Molotov's pack. Since it's the full moon, Tony is out on a hunt with the rest of the pack. When he awakens the next morning, another pack member, Yurgi, is there and telling him they have to bury the bones of their last night's dinner since they're the Omegas. After Tony hears his wife, Sue, telling him to hurry home, he manages to subdue Yurgi and races home to his apartment, where he finds a bunch of kids terrorizing his wife and his old WOLVEN friend, Bobby is there as well. It turns out Bobby is here for a reason, Babs, the werewolf that turned Tony, has been kidnapped from his old boss, Carmine and Linda's home. Since Carmine will only trust Tony to find her and "take care" of the kidnapper, it is vital he go with Bobby.

It turns out Babs wasn't the only Sazi kidnapped, which is how Bobby came to be involved in the whole mess. After getting Sue settled, Bobby and Tony go to the pack headquarters and Tony ends up shooting the second in command with a silver bullet. Whereupon, he's introduced to the pack's disciplinarian, Asri, who turns out to be a Komodo dragon. Sparks begin flying between Bobby and Asri before Bobby and Tony go to Carmine's place. When the two of them begin investigating, they find a really strange smell, one neither one of them recognize.

Will Bobby and Tony be able to the find the one kidnapping and killing Sazi? Will anything happen between Bobby and Asri? Will Tony ever be able to handle pack life?

MOON'S WEB is a thrilling continuation to HUNTER'S MOON. C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp have outdone the wonderful job they did with HUNTER'S MOON! The action begins on the very first page and doesn't let up throughout the story. There are plots and subplots galore, but they never become overwhelming. In this story, we get to meet a lot more of the Sazi people and begin to understand a bit more about them and their culture, including their various "gifts". This is also where Tony learns of his "gift" of being a seer with hindsight. And I loved the way Tony discovered his gift. Not to mention, the way everyone kept trying to help Tony by blocking his connection with Sue. I was immediately drawn into this story from the very first page and found myself enthralled discovering new things about the Sazi. This is definitely a book you don't want to miss reading and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

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.
