Book Description

Sept. 30 2008 Tales of the Sazi (Book 3)
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't Spellbound Sept. 25 2006
By Anna Hope - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a good book, but not one of the better ones this year. The opening chapter,in which Antionne finds and rescues Tahira, was probably one of the best ones in the book. It grabbed your attention. But the rest of the book largely left you hanging, waiting and waiting to see would happen next.

Tony Giodonne, our upstart anti-hero from the previous two books makes a passing cameo in a phone call. And plenty of Sazi are mentioned in this tale, although if you haven't read atleast the previous book, Moon's Web, your just not going to have a clue about who a large amount of these characters are, nor will you fear the evil spider-lady nearly as much.

The best character was oddly the snearing Ahmad, 2,000-plus-some year old king of the snakes. I kind of want to see him fall for someone now. Which is surprising after Moon's Web when you couldn't stand the guy.

I was annoyed that the authors never explained why Antoinne's sisters changed their names nor why there is so much emnity among them after all this time has passed. We did get to learn a tiny bit more about Wolven, however, the Sazi police force.

Also, Tahira's brother was a bit of an idiot though he was made out to sound like hot stuff. He was held captive for over a month. His tribe is known for the fact that they can all turn invisible...and in that whole month it didn't once occur to him to use this ability to escape???

I loved the first two Moon books and if your a big fan of the series or a die hard were-book lover than pick this up. If not skip it, it's not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next thrilling tale of the Sazi Aug. 11 2006
By Kelley Hartsell - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of CK2S Kwips and Kritiques

The writing duo of C T Adams and Cathy Clamp has given us yet another fascinating story of the Sazi that readers will love.

Antoine Monier is the "Rex," or leader, of all the cats in Sazi society. He also just happens to be one of the best known performers of big cat shows in the world. He's always been content with his choices of careers until he arrives in Germany and trouble finds him. One of his most beloved tigers is stolen and slaughtered. When he finds out what happened, he's in for a surprise. As it turns out, there was one tiger who escaped the brutality and she just happens to be a shape shifter as well!

Tahira Kuric is one of a very rare race, the "ghost tribe," or Hayalet Kabile. When she is rescued by the thrillingly sensual Antoine, she wants nothing to do with him, for he is Sazi, sworn enemy to her kind. Trouble still beckons however, for Tahira's brother is missing and she needs to find him. When Antoine comes to her aid, they discover that she is very special... a mythical "power well" who can store up the energies of others.

Antoine must find Tahira's brother, help her learn to control her powers, and get a handle on the impossible-to-resist passion between them, for their greatest battle is yet to come. Can they overcome their differences to save both races from extinction at the hands of a deadly enemy?

Readers get to meet Antoine in previous books in the series, but that only gave a slight hint of his personality, just enough to intrigue. In this novel, we get to delve deeply in to the heart and mind of Antoine, learning just how complex a person he is. More insight is also given into his abilities and readers experience his struggles with him as he tries to control them. Old fears and bad memories rear their ugly head for Antoine and he has to conquer them in order to take his true place in Sazi society.

Tahira has always felt like an outsider in her family, never quite living up to their expectations. When she was imprisoned, she thought any chance of gaining respect was over. As she learns more about herself, and her abilities, after Antoine rescues and shelters her, she comes to realize that maybe she finally has the chance to prove herself to everyone. As her relationship with Antoine grows, readers see her confidence blossom and her powers strengthen in the light of his love for her.

Once again, readers are gifted with a unique story full of action, passion, and mystery from the minds of these two very talented authors in Captive Moon. Readers are catapulted in to one adventure after another with Antoine, Tahira, and company as they race against time, and the phases of the moon, to get to the bottom of what is really going on in Germany. The introduction of an ancient race, the Hayalet Kabile, adds another dimension to the tale, for their society is very traditional Middle Eastern, where they originated. Watching the modern Sazi deal with the more conservative ways of the Kabile will be quite interesting to readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, but not great, either Feb. 2 2007
By Neker - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed the second book in this series and was looking forward to this one. I was a bit disappointed. I think the authors had a good idea, but didn't push it into as much depth as they could. I didn't feel they brought out the culture of the Turkish and German lands they were visiting enough and the characters were not as relatible as they could be. Again, I think it was a lack of depth of the character. I get that Antoine had a bad childhood and that is what is holding him back from wanting to let go with his visions, but for Tahira to be able to know him so well in only a few days and one sexual encounter to be able to diagnose his problem and advise him on it was silly. Also, the scene where her brother escapes completely annoyed me. The thought that he could have so easily escape for over a month! and didn't because he simply never thought of it?! I know this is fantasy, but that is simply unrealistic human behavior.

I'll continue reading, simply because I liked the first two books, but I certainly hope this was a one time only goof.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on the previous 2 books Jan. 7 2007
By yogarttime - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was as dull as dishwater. Too many details crammed together which didn't make any sense. The sex wasn't very good. I found some of the writing actually a bit childish. I didn't care about the two main characters, and the female lead was just annoying. This is not a patch on Hunters Moon and Moon's web.
