There's something about the Sazi series that doesn't quite work for me, and never has. I think it's because I'm never entirely sure what's going on and everyone always seems to be rushing around on hunches which come right. The same is true in this book, with several plot lines which somehow all merge together.
Tony Giodone is a wolf and former contract killer. He finds himself strangely linked to the snake Ahmad which means that together they are able to investigate a plot within the snake community. At the same time there are issues with a newly-turned woman who is a badger shifter, Tony's wife Sue seems to be ailing as a result of their bond, and various mafia people seem to have got onto Tony's trail. These disparate threads didn't all work too well for me, particularly as I often wasn't sure what was actually going on.
The writing is good, as usual, and there's no hint that it's the work of two different authors. However I didn't find it gripping as I was reading it and also felt that the characters were all rather one-dimensional. Those who like this series know what they're going to get with this book but it's not one I expect to want to read again.

I have enjoyed all of this series and would like a lot more (please) and it is very interesting to see exactly how far both Tony and Sue have come in dealing with the abrupt changes in their lives. Tony does his usual and seriously annoys Ahmad (who also gets a bit of comeuppance!) but Ahmad has to deal with it and finds out that the lower classes are maybe not quite so bad after all!
More is revealed about the centuries long plot that Sargon was involved in and we find out what the drugs in Timeless Moon are being used for.
If you have followed this series it is well worth reading but could be a little confusing if you try and read it as a stand alone novel.
