The Cat

The Cat by Jean Johnson
Amara is wary of mages––they chased her out of her homeland. Yet there is something about the mage Trevan of Nightfall that Amara can’t resist. But can he be trusted with her most fiercely guarded secret? Courting such a pretty yet prickly outlander won’t be easy, but Trevan is determined to try. She may be fierce, proud, and from a different culture, but after all, he is the Cat, and none but the most fascinating and challenging of women could satisfy him…

Like all the other books in "the Sons of Destiny" series, this is another winner. I don't know how Ms. Johnson does it, you'd think that after 4 books, this one, the fifth would be more of the same. But here's the best part, there is an over arching storyline and plot for the whole series and each book and each brother's bride we see more and more of this storyline. Even better is the way she brings the older characters into the fold. They are not merely background flavor but active participants of the story.

If you're just jumping on the wagon, start with book 1, The Sword, its the best way to enjoy the series.

I'm hooked on this series and have already pre-ordered the remaining 3 books. Now if they could just be released sooner.

Overall Rating : 5/5
