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.
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.

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