He's a wolf… She's a jaguar…
Raphael is a former agent of the shape shifter secret police, forced into retirement after a very public scandal.  Now he's assigned to help the victim of a hideous crime -- a woman who has been attacked by a serial killer, and accidentally turned into a were-jaguar.
Worse yet, Catherine turns out to be Raphael’s fated mate.  But the serial k

This book of the Sazi was very good. In fact, I thought it was great. In this story, you will find more than just your usual shift shaping, murdering were creatures. Along side with your usual paranormal romance that is to be expected. You will also discover prejudice and betrayal. Even in a wolf pack, there are hatred towards another shifter ( shifters ). When one of their own falls in love and becomes mated to another were creature that is not of their own, prejudice and tension rises, especia ...more

Hated this book. Raphael is a slut and his sexual addiction to cats is the cause of much death and suffering in the Sazi world. Catherine is a spoiled elitist blonde. I agreed with the pack. I wanted her GONE. It was worth reading once for the other characters, but it will never be on my reread list.

The first half was kind of interesting, although the plot made no sense. I kept reading, but it made less and less sense as I went. Felt like an unfinished book that was tossed out to make a quick buck.

Howling Moon is book 4 of the Sazi series about shapeshifters living hidden in plain sight amongst humans in the everyday world. I read the first book of the series, then picked up this one, thinking it was the 2nd book, realizing later it was the 4th book in the series, however, each book follows different characters within the world of the Sazi so it was easy enough to follow.
This story follows a woman who was attacked by a jaguar (a serial killer shapeshifter) and is destined to become a ja
Not as exciting as the previous Sazi book I read, Moon's Fury. I think one of the downfalls of having 2 authors collaborate on a story like this is that it can make the prose very jumpy. There were several parts I had to go back to reread because the style changed in the middle and I lost my train of thought.

The other problem I had with this book was that it seemed like it might have gotten rushed to publishing because there seemed to be a few plot holes and the grammar and spelling mistakes we
The book is both good and not so much. I think that some of the problems are that its written by two authors. Sometimes the language changes between chapters and even I (who is not primary an English speaker) found spelling errors so I think the editor should have read it one more time before it went on market.
But apart from that I really like the series about the Sazi. I like the thought trough world building. That e g when you are a wolf you run in packs and have obligations to the pack and it
Jan 27, 2016 Lindsey rated it it was ok
I was disappointed. This installment was confusing how it took place before and during one of the earlier books. AND I had just read all the previous books! But regardless of that, there was so much jumping around. Even that's not really an apt description, it was like the authors had ADD. Subjects didn't flow together, like the two authors sometimes weren't even communicating about the characters and their frame of mind. What are editors for if not to help iron out stuff like this. It was an en ...more
Okay I liked it but if felt seperate from the events though some of it is, as per the note to the reader page, made sense in the time line. I felt though that alot of the things said werent thuroghly described and I kept wondering what this meant, or how something was possiblebecause it want desribed in the previous books. I could follow most of the plot and it had really good parts like the ending.

This book had a bit more intrigue than previous books. While not as good as the first in the series it was better than the last one. Unfortunately there were some gaps in the story. At times I had to flip back a page thinking that I had missed something. Several things went unexplained. I will not give any spoilers, but it was a problem.

3.5 stars.

I like these authors. The writing style makes sense to me and I am willing to go along for the ride. The story was necessary to clear up several elements in the storyline for the series and I was satisfied with the progress.

Another Sazi novel, this one mostly focuses on wolf packs and how they interact with non-shifter family members. It also reveals some pack politics and how packs are controlled or protected. Great story and great characters!

I enjoyed Catherine and Raphael and their story. It was a nice shape shifter book, then end was a little sad but happy. I liked the action and how Raphael fell for her and new he shouldn't and then all his feelings erupted into something more!

Not a winner. I stuck it out, thinking it had to get better. The writing just feels very cold and detached from the characters.

This book was my first supernatural read, and I was impressed with how complicated it must have been to build the world, lore, and characters and have it seem smooth and seamless.

This is such a great book. But I suggest you read the first 3 books in the SAZI series first to get all the people and their gravitas. But it is funnier that way!

I loved it! So far I have loved every one of the Sazi tales. This one was really fantastic. I just could not put it down. I can't wait to read more of the Sazi tales!

I really liked this book, the series is not bad for shape-shifters. The characters are not limited to just their own species, that's a nice twist.
