This review is from: Captive Moon (Tale of the Sazi) (Mass Market Paperback)
Antoine Monier, leader of the Sazi cats, is a strong alpha with excellent illusion abilities. He is also a seer; however, he has tried to bury that particular ability since he was five. The story begins in Germany. Antoine is escorted by local law enforcement to where several tigers were recently captured by poachers and slaughtered. It is too late to help them, but he learns of a female tiger being held. The LAST thing Antoine expects is to end up rescuing a were-tiger from a tribe believed long extinct.
Tahira Kuric is a member of the Hayalet Kabile (Ghost Tribe) in America. Her brother, Rabi, had been kidnapped and she was captured while searching for him. All their lives, Tahira and Rabi had been warned of the deceitful Sazi. But she needs his help if she is to have any chance of locating Rabi. It soon becomes apparent that a great war loomed within the near future unless they somehow avert it. The war would be species against species and if Rabi were to be killed by his captors, even the humans would become involved, and blood and fire would rain down on the world.
To make matters worse, Antoine is being challenged for his seat as leadership. This brings Ahmad al-Narmer, councilman for the were-snakes, into their residence, as witness to the challenge. Ahman and Antoine, equal in position and power, clash constantly and they both vie for Tahira's affection. And Tahira has a unique power, not seen for thousands of years, that even SHE did not know she possessed. Unless she learns to control it, Tahira will unwillingly kill any shifter that ever comes near her.
***** This is a fabulous addition to the Sazi tales! Things happen quickly and the pace moves along at a good speed. The authors have several surprises in store for you as well. You will never find yourself getting bored in the slightest. In fact, you may find yourself breathing quickly in anticipation. Authors C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp corroborate so well, you would think they were one person. Riveting! *****
