A Review of Serpent Moon by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp

If you are into the complex hierarchy of shifters- this book is for you.

A new spin on shape shifters- The Sazi- this series of books takes complex world building to a whole new level.

The authors have turned the world of shifters into a complex system of politics, military and scientific experimentation rolled into a story line that includes drama, suspense, murder, and romance- an urban fantasy world like no other.

Now I feel a little out of the loop since this is the first book of the Sazi that I have read. It looks like there are 7 before it though in the front of the book it said this one is based on a minor side character and a brand new character but that it answers a lot of questions and completes a couple story arcs.

Ugh. I feel like I received the answers to the test but not the actual test. No real big deal though- it was still a fabulous story full of action, adventure and yes...some romance. It was a great book and this series is now on my to- read list. I am going back and starting from the beginning.

Here's more info about this book:

"Lions and tigers and bears. Oh MY!"

Shapeshifters live among us, their very existence a secret they're willing to die . . . or kill, to protect. Welcome to the world of the Sazi, a dangerous world of passion and intrigue where human and animal natures clash in a continuing struggle for dominance.

Serpent Moon Book 8, Tales of the Sazi
Publisher: Doherty, Tom Associates, LLC
Pub. Date: March 2010

Eric Thompson has always lived in the shadow of his older brother, the Alpha of the Canadian werewolf pack. While he has strength and speed and a howl that can truly make his pack whole, he doesn’t have his brother’s viciousness—and the pack wasn’t worth either of them dying. To Eric, a leader should lead wisely and well, and his brother has done neither. So he left to become a lone wolf.

Holly Sanchez has likewise lived in the shadows. A full human born to the Omega of the Boulder pack, she was attacked and turned into the very thing she had come to hate. Worse still, she became an alphic healer—except that as a wolf, she now terrifies the very animals she’d hoped to one day treat as a veterinarian.

But as the world goes mad and species begins to attack species, Holly and Eric learn that they may only have their special gifts, and each other, to rely on to hold together the fragments of what was once a mighty shapeshifter population.

For She has finally come, and the world will never again be the same.
