I looked back, but apparently I wasn't reviewing books regularly when I read the first two books in this series. The most dominant thing I remember from the early books is that lycanthropes can smell emotions as food odors. Kind of novel concept.

This book was placed in the same universe, but focused on different characters. Nice for a type of clean start when you don't quite remember the earlier books.

In the end, there were two things that really irritated me about this book. Can't recall if the
I had three chapters left and I could not find the will to finish it. The plot was okay and it would have been better if the characters were better. I was looking forward to reading this one. I thought it was going to be about weretigers and the like...but...oh my it just wasn't good. Antoine is extremely hard to like. Tahira was okay but I found her to be unbelievable.

I found myself skimming the pages as the characters ate and shopped. -_-
Antoine is an acquired taste. His insecurities as hard to reconcile with the typical Alpha attitude found in paranormal romance. He does grow and that saves him. The introduction of a new set of lycanthrope a with no loyalty to the Sazi made it a transitional story with plenty of future implications on the world building that is taking place.

I've really liked C.T. Adams' and Cathy Clamp's Thrall series and even though this Sazi book was pretty good too, I couldn't help but feel that something was missing. I can't put my finger on it, maybe it's because things seemed to stand still for most of the book, and didn't really move forward except for in the beginning and then in the end. I also felt rather indifferent about the characters, which is always a bad thing. :/ I've only read this book in the Sazi series so far though, so maybe t ...more
This book was ok. I just couldn't get into it like the other two. I don't think I liked Antoine as much as Tony. I also couldn't really get swept into the romance because there seemed to be chunks of random story thrown in. I assume it for setting up future storylines but it just bored me to tears. I will continue the series because I loved the first two so i'm putting it down to just one bad story.
In Captive Moon we learn of different groups of Sazi and how they are interacting with each other. We also learn of groups that are trying to destroy or control different groups of Sazi, and who they are and how they are attempting their takeover of the Sazi and humans, alike. Great Story, and incredible ending!

since I had to skip a few books in this series..I went back and ordered them. This was a story about a guy who doesn't have a clue. It takes him forever to get one. Gee. Someone should have hit him over the head with it. the story was still good.
Needs more Tony, but....still a good book. The intrigue of the hidden tribe was very cool and I liked the way the authors tied the world together with the earlier events in previous books.
I just love this series! I think the author's are wonderful and I love them for bringing me a fresh new type of paranormal romance and I am so looking foward to more from them!

I thought this book was okay. This is a different part of the Sazi story that is about werecats, snakes, and spiders. It pretty much opens your eyes on the paranormal world.
Was ok. I figured out a few pages in I have read it before. Oops. :) Like the world. ANd I want one of those Quilts! You'll see when you get there.
