|Plot Summary of Savage Moon|
Leisure, Feb 2002, 5.99, 349 pp.
In 1852 Wyoming, eight year old Mitzi "Misshi" Bradley has had plenty of recent sorrow with the death of her mother in childbirth and that of her father from an Indian attack. Left with only a teenage brother to care for her, Misshi is abducted by renegade Chief Bear of the Bannock tribe during a raid of the wagon train that included the two Bradleys.
A decade later, Chief Bear's son Soaring Hawk knows that the confrontation between he and his sire is coming soon. Ten years ago, Soaring Hawk left his father's tribe to start anew in peace and has succeeded in his endeavor. However, he knows he needs help before challenging his father. He turns to Chief Washakie where he meets Misshi, who was kindly raised by this benevolent tribe. Misshi and Soaring Hawk immediately recognize in the other their soul mate, but their shared past converging at the pivotal figure, his evil father, makes a permanent relationship seem impossible.
Though Cassie Edwards has often told tales of star-crossed lovers in her “Savage” series, her latest tale SAVAGE MOON is a well-written entertaining entry. The story line is action packed and loaded with angst as the lead couple falls in love while just about everyone except for Chief Washakie (who has doubts) oppose this relationship. Ms. Edwards is one of the best at emotion-laden forbidden lovers' tales and this book will enhance her esteem amidst sub-genre readers.
