Captive Moon by Cathy Clamp & C. T. Adams is the third book of the Sazi Tales. And surprise this story is not of Tony Giodonne, our hero from the previous two books. In Captive Moon we learn of different groups of Sazi and how they are interacting with each other C. T. Adams and Cathy Clamp has given us yet another fascinating story of the Sazi.
Antoine Monier,the shape-shifting half-lion, half-cougar leader is not only a World-class entertainer but also Sazi council-member. He finds out that there’s a shape shifter captive along with other tigers and goes to rescue them to find a woman, a woman from a legendary family thought extinct. California-born Tahira who is a were-tiger had been in Turkey with her brother Rabi, visiting their grandparents, when Rabi disappeared. While searching for him, Tahira was captured. Also they discover that she is very special… a mythical “power well” who can store up the energies of others. Together they find out who wants Tahira for her powers and also they fight another Were spider.
Well like the previous other two books Captive Moon too is very captivating in its read. The adventure faced by Antoine and Tahira,the race against time, and the phases of the moon, to get to the bottom of what is really going on keeps you enthralled. The character I most liked is the arrogant were-snake Ahmad who is also a council member. What I liked most about him is that in spite of his hauty manners n arrogance he fights along side Antoine and Tahira and shows that he is one who can be trusted in times of need. I hope that Cathy Clamp & CT Adams write a separate book about Ahmad the were snake. All in all Captive Moon is as enjoyable as the previous two books Hunter’s Moon and Moon’s Web.
