Moon's Web By CT Adams and Cathy Clamp

You just KNEW I had to read the second book. It was just sitting there on the shelf calling to me!

CT Adams & Cathy Clamp developed the world of the Sazi by leaps and bounds in this continuation of the story of Tony and Sue. The plot was a little more complex in this book, and in fact, there were several plotlines carried throughout the book. Most of the characters from the first book return for at least a scene or two, though the setting has moved to Chicago.

By the end of the story we are completely set up for the next book in the series. Actually, it sets us up for at least a couple of the plots to come.

When I responded to a post about this book on the McNally's email group from Jim Butcher's website Cathy herself responded with these words:

"... You'll be happy to know that we have TWO Sazi books in 2006 (plus one that's the beginning of a new world, called TOUCH OF EVIL. That one will be out in March.) The next Sazi is CAPTIVE MOON and will be out in August. However, it WON'T be in Tony's POV. We're going to start to follow other characters as well, but we're planning another Tony book in 2007. Captive Moon features Antoine Monier, the French councilman for the cats at the end of Moon's Web. HOWLING MOON will be out in mid-December and follows Raven's father, Raphael Ramirez, in Boulder (Lucas's pack). Hope you'll like them too! :D Cathy"

I, for one, will be watching for their new releases. Although, I really hate waiting almost a year for the next book! :-D
I enjoyed the development of both Tony and Sue throughout the story. Meeting the new characters was a bit overwhelming at times, but it is evident that each and every one of them will eventually have a part in the plot. The main mystery was sidetracked a bit by everything else was going on but the climax was really well written. However, there were parts of this story that I thought were a bit rushed at the end, almost like "oh my gosh we better get these plot points in before the deadline". The overall feeling I was left with though was very good.
