Publisher: Runaway Pen
Series: The Cat's Eye Chronicles
Sora Fallcrest always dreamed of adventure, but as a member of the nobility, she learned the ways of a Lady instead. Now seventeen, she is expected to choose a husband and marry. She plots to run away, but just as she is stepping out the door, she runs into a mysterious man--and is kidnapped.
Abducted from her manor, Sora is plunged into a world of magical races, arcane jewelry and forgotten lore. She finds herself at the mercy of a dangerous assassin, haunted by an even darker past. She yearns for freedom, but he won't let her go--not when her Cat's Eye necklace is the only thing that can save his life.
But the necklace itself presents a problem. It is an ancient device from the long forgotten War of the Races, and its magic has the ability to steal souls. Can Sora learn to wield its power -- or will the power wield her? (Winner of the SKOW 2006 Best Fantasy Award)
OLD REVIEW MADE NEW*:
The plot was a little warbled though, swaying one way or the other. It didn't find purchase until the end and unfortunately only tied one loose end, but there are three books total to this series. That's ample time to knot the rest. There were entertaining fight scenes, which are also well written, though there wasn't much gratification except for one or two.
Scheffler's story is entertaining for sure, and a decent start to a series. I'd recommend checking it out if you like fantasy with some butt-kicking action scenes.
*This is an old review from the old blog. I still recommend that people read this one. It's free, it's a great adventure and it had a wonderful writing style. Happy Reading!
