"Lions, tigers and werewolves! Oh My!"

Assassin for hire, Tony likes to intimidate his clients. So, when he sets up a meeting with Sue, they met at his favorite seedy bar in the bad part of town. He doesn't want to know the whys behind someone getting marked for death he just needs the stats: name, address, how would you like to know the job is completed, etc. So when Sue tells him that she is his target, he suddenly finds himself involved in a whole lot more than he bargained for.

Sue has a horrible, overbearing family. Her mother moved in and promptly chased off all her girlfriends as well as her boyfriend. Adding insult to injury, good ol' mom then hooked her ex-boyfriend up with her older sister. Then Sue won the $268 million lottery, which made her family even worse. Because she didn't have any confidence in herself, a "backbone" as she called it, she really thought her only alternative was to have herself killed because she couldn't do the job herself.

HUNTER'S MOON is fantastic! I will admit I was starting to loose interest with the beginning of the book because it's a very long dialogue between Tony and Sue even though it was very enlightening and relevant to later parts of the book. I started laughing when Tony (who is also a newly changed werewolf) realizes he forgot about the moon cycle, and wakes up the next morning terrified he had killed Sue. The story continued to make me laugh, but I think my favorite scene was at the airport. However Sue's revenge against her family is pretty good too!

Adams and Clamp seamlessly combined their writing talents, and having the story told from the first person male perspective was really different. I got a hoot out of his confusion at times while trying to adapt to being a werewolf but really liked the fact that he was not depressed about being one. Rather he just accepted it as something he couldn't change...and wanted to kill the person who turned him.

Excellent book! I didn't think a were-story could be so funny! I highly recommend HUNTER'S MOON and am really looking forward to reading its sequel, MOON'S WEB.

Sue Quentin has reached the end of her rope-she's desperate, and there's only one way out. Her plan doesn't include falling for Tony, the mysterious hit man she hires. He listens when she speaks and somehow convinces her that maybe her problems aren't entirely insurmountable. He even thinks her little potbelly is sexy. So he's a werewolf--everyone has flaws!

Sue enjoys being coddled by Tony, and, for his part, Tony likes the way Sue moans when he touches her. She begins to think she and Tony might have a shot at a future together, despite his unorthodox profession . . . and even though she doesn't know his real name.

But when Tony's enemies-not all of whom are fully human-decide Sue makes a perfect target, will Tony risk letting his darker side out during the day to save her?
