2009: #104 – Hunter's Moon (C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp)

huntersmoon Book #104 was Hunter’s Moon, the first book in C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp’s Tales of the Sazi.  The back of the book reads:


Sue Quentin has reached the end of her rope-she’s desperate, and there’s only one way out. Her plan doesn’t include falling for Tony, the mysterious hit man she hires. He listens when she speaks and somehow convinces her that maybe her problems aren’t entirely insurmountable. He even thinks her little potbelly is sexy. So he’s a werewolf–everyone has flaws!

Sue enjoys being coddled by Tony, and, for his part, Tony likes the way Sue moans when he touches her. She begins to think she and Tony might have a shot at a future together, despite his unorthodox profession . . . and even though she doesn’t know his real name.

But when Tony’s enemies-not all of whom are fully human-decide Sue makes a perfect target, will Tony risk letting his darker side out during the day to save her?

This started out so promising, with a really great premise: a professional assassin has a potential client who has a strange request – the person she wants killed is herself. Add to that the fact that the assassin is also a werewolf, and you’re ready for a rip-roarin’ good time! Except that’s not really what you get. The story is narrated by Tony, the assassin, and I just didn’t like his tone. I found him to be flippant and overly emotional, when I really wanted him to be hard and cool. And if the werewolf stuff isn’t enough for you, there’s some extra weird metaphysical stuff at the end that really makes no sense at all.  I generally enjoy paranormal/urban fantasies, but this was a little too much for me.  I’m not interested in finishing this series.
