World-class entertainer and Sazi councilmember, Antoine Monier has taken his big cats all over the world without any trouble--until his latest trip to Stuttgart, where one of his tigers is stolen and killed. To Antoine's surprise, the German police have another tiger in custody--a tiger who is actually a lovely Turkish-American woman, Tahira Kuric.
Like Antoine, Tahira is a shapeshifter, but of the Hayalet Kabile, the ghost tribe of shapeshifters. And despite their immediate attraction, Tahira wants nothing to do with Antoine--the Sazi are the enemy of the Hayalet Kabile.
But Tahira doesn't have a choice, because she and Antoine have discovered that she is a fabled "power well," able to store magical energy from other shapeshifters--and something is hunting her, eager to use her powers for itself.
Only if they can set aside their peoples' ancient rivalry and rely completely on each other--body and soul--can Tahira and Antoine save themselves and their people.
Cathy Clamp and C. T. Adams have been writing partners for almost as long as they've both been writing. They are the creators of the Sazi universe, in which they've set several books -- the duet of Hunter's Moon and Moon's Web, as well as Captive Moon, and the forthcoming Howling Moon. They are also the creators of the universe of the Thrall, evil, parasitic vampires, which can be read about in their book Touch of Evil. Cathy Clamp and C. T. Adams both live in Texas where they are hard at work on their next novel for Tor Romance.
"I read the book in one sitting. I look forward to the next book in the series, because it has to be the beginning of a series. A world this enjoyable deserves more than one visit. This book has some new twists in the werewolf's tail that were very cool."--Laurell K. Hamilton on Hunter's Moon
"Adams and Clamp are a powerhouse team that have opened the door to an amazing new world." Romantic Times BookClub Magazine Top Pick, 4 1/5 stars, on Hunter's Moon
"Adams and Clamp are adept at writing intensely sensuous, hot lovemaking scenes, but where they really shine is in the creation of an unforgettable world where secret shape-shifters live, love, and scheme. Laurel K. Hamilton readers will enjoy this edgy world."--Booklist on Moon's Web
