Eric Thompson is an Alpha wolf who has chosen to live a solitary existence to save those around him from his unique gift, one he's never been able to control. His howl is so powerful that it can bring down planes and disrupt electronics. Even his own kind cannot explain how he acquired his gift, let alone determine how to dampen its monstrous effects.

After being attacked by a gang of renegade Sazi, Holly Sanchez discovers she's not only been turned, but that she's also become a powerful healer. Her gift also gives her the ability to see the ancient, invisible snake goddess Marduc who resurrects her quest to kill those who stand in the way of her reclaiming her former glory.

As if Marduc's deadly power play isn't trouble enough for the Sazi, Holly also discovers that there are militants within their world who would see their entire civilization turned back to humans. Now it's up to Holly and Eric to find a solution to both threats before their entire race is decimated.

Many fans will be disappointed to learn that Serpent Moon is the eighth and final instalment of Adams' and Clamp's long-running Sazi series. The story is again a bit character heavy as both previous and new cast members join the fray, detrimental to Holly and Eric's relationship and character growth. However, the authors do keep the action and excitement going full tilt as the Sazi overcome various plot twists, thwart their enemies, and ultimately save the day.
