Description from Authors' website:
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.
Serpent Moon is the latest exciting and explosive addition to the Sazi series by C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp. I am still a newbie when it comes to the Sazi saga but luckily for me, Adams & Clamp give enough background to keep me up to date on what’s going on so I wouldn’t be lost.
Eric Thompson is trying to do what’s right as future alpha of his pack. He is put to the test to see if he is worthy of being alpha. Yet there are those who don’t believe Eric should be free to be the alpha. Eric has a strange power that when he howls things go crazy like electronics not working and even worse aircrafts tumbling from the sky. This particular power makes him being wary to be around people and fellow his Sazi.
There are things that are set in motion that puts Eric solitude is put on hold. He lets his fellow Sazi about a healer Holly Sanchez. A healer is hard to find in their world. Luckily for the Sazi they have Eric and Holly on their side.
An ancient evil has risen and hate group is out to destroy the Sazi. With danger surrounding from each side Eric, Holly and the rest of the Sazi have their hands full. The attacks get even more intense as it soon becomes known that the Sazi enemies are working together behind the scenes.
Holly Sanchez has yet to get over her trauma from being attacked and no longer just a human being. She’s come a long way but still has trouble dealing with her new reality. She is reunited with her former crush, Eric. Things have come full circle now that Eric is finally able to be with Holly.
Holly has always cared for Eric but there was an issue of jailbait age. Just as things are looking good for these two the shit has hit the fan. *Excuse the expression*
Serpent Moon is a remarkable story and well deserved addition to the Sazi saga. I found it a quite enjoyable book to read. So much that I simply could not tear my eyes away from it to the very end. Adams and Clamp gives newbies to the Sazi history that readers will not feel lost from reading Serpent Moon.
Holly is one kick ass heroine who has had to overcome many obstacles that didn’t just start when first was turned. Eric really knows how to charm “his” woman. Oh how I enjoyed the building of their romance in midst of all the chaos going around them.
Serpent Moon, like Eric will charm many readers! I hope you all will enjoy reading this latest Sazi addition as much as I do.
I give Serpent Moon (Book 8 of Tales of the Sazi) a 5 Star rating.
