World-class entertainer and Sazi councilmember, Antoine Monier has taken his big cats all over the world without any trouble--until his latest trip to Stuttgart, where one of his tigers is stolen and killed. To Antoine's surprise, the German police have another tiger in custody--a tiger who is actually a lovely Turkish-American woman, Tahira Kuric. Like Antoine, Tahira is a shapeshifter, but of the Hayalet Kabile, the ghost tribe of shapeshifters. And despite their immediate attraction, Tahira wants nothing to do with Antoine--the Sazi are the enemy of the Hayalet Kabile. But Tahira doesn't have a choice, because she and Antoine have discovered that she is a fabled "power well," able to store magical energy from other shapeshifters--and something is hunting her, eager to use her powers for itself. Only if they can set aside their peoples' ancient rivalry and rely completely on each other--body and soul--can Tahira and Antoine save themselves and their people.… (mehr)

She's from a separate tribe from the Sazi, and has a rare ability that is coveted by the bad guys. Lots of traitors in this story. I liked the section where they played with Babette and her cubs.

Cougar, Tiger, Snake, Spider shifters. He's Cougar-Lion mix (cougar is dominant), she's a Caspian Tiger. ( )

Antoine Monier finds out that there's a shapeshifter captive and goes to rescue them to find a woman, a woman from a legendary family thought extinct. He finds himself attracted and finds himself having to save her.

It's a fun read, the characters are interesting and the situations, while farfetched are believable within the world of the story. The romance develops well and they have issues and problems with the past and families, as well as with the people trying to use them for nefarious purposes. ( )

And the trend continues. I loved this one as well.

But first, a brief PSA: Phone lines in Germany are underground--thus, the phones do not go out regardless of how bad a winter storm is. Cars drive on the right in Germany, and the driver sits on the left, just as in the U.S. You won't find a roast beef sandwich, or indeed a sandwich at all in a typical German restaurant--you might possibly find one in an English pub or an American diner. When flying from the U.S. to Germany, you'll never arrive at 5 p.m. Note: this is all stuff that you wouldn't notice unless you live here, and it really makes no difference to the story.

I was a little sad to discover that this third Sazi book didn't feature Tony again, nor was it written in first person, but it didn't take me long to get caught up in the new characters--maybe a page or two.

Antoine Monier, the shapeshifting half-lion, half-cougar leader of the Sazi cats, and world-famous entertainer, discovers a were-tiger being held in a cage after poachers killed several tigers. He rescues her, only to find that she's a member of the Hayalet Kabile, a tribe thought to be extinct--a tribe that views the Sazi as enemies.

Meanwhile, Antoine's grandmother has challenged him for control of the clan, charging that he's allowing those under his care to come to harm and that he's not making full use of his gifts.

Tahira is the were-tiger Antoine rescued, and it quickly becomes apparent that it's not a simple case of poachers. She'd been searching for her missing brother Rabi, and had been missing herself for a month--of which she has little memory. The abductors are clearly looking specifically for shapeshifters.

The search and investigation are exciting and will keep you turning pages long after you should have turned out the lights. But it's exciting because you care so much about the characters. Both Antoine and Tahira are very powerful, but neither of them knows much about their more unusual gifts, and as a result neither uses them to the fullest.

Antoine is a seer, but his visions make him feel worried and helpless, so he ignores them as much as he can. Tahira is a power well--that is, she can absorb and store power from other shapeshifters--but she has no understanding of what that means, and instead has always thought the powerful members of her clan had avoided her because she was useless.

It's fascinating to watch them discover their potential while they discover their attraction to each other, while dealing with danger, mystery, winter storms, and the leader of the snakes who's there to witness the challenge and sees himself as a rival for Tahira's affections.

The secondary characters--Antoine's grandmother and employees, as well as the villains--are all realistic and have plot threads of their own. I'm hoping to see more of several of them, particularly the Australian Matty; Margo, Antoine's secretary; and Larry and Bruce.

As with the previous two Sazi books, Captive Moon is a dense, rich story that seamlessly combines fantasy, mystery/adventure, and romance. I hope this series continues a good long while. ( )

As leader of the Sazi were-cats, Antoine Monier takes his duties seriously. While hunting for one of his stolen non-were tigers, he stumbles across a captive young woman named Tahira who can't hold her tiger shape much longer. Antoine convinces the police to release Tahira to him, and he's startled to discover she's not Sazi, but of the Hayalet Kabile, or ghost tribe.

California-born Tahira had been in Turkey with her brother Rabi, visiting their grandparents, when Rabi disappeared. While searching for him, Tahira was captured. Rescued by Antoine, Tahira is now desperate to find her still-missing brother. Despite the longstanding enmity between their people, Tahira accepts Antoine's assistance. They discover that the kidnapping is only the tip of the iceberg in a much larger plan as a legendary evil gathers its horrifying strength.

Firmly grounding these extraordinary characters in the modern world helps increase the emotional stakes in the gripping Sazi reality. Like few others, Adams and Clamp's writing style successfully blends romance, adventure and the magical. As their latest confirms, this outstanding duo is unbeatable! (Aug., 384 pp., $6.99) ( )

Latest in the series, first not about Tony. Very enjoyable, but felt as though I was missing some things, though I had read some of the previous novels. ( )
