Wait...I want more!

Ferran's Map (The Cat's Eye Chronicles #4)

by T.L. Shreffler 

"The bloodmage Volcrian is dead, but a new enemy lurks in the shadows. The Shade, a fanatical cult of demonic assassins, is trying to resurrect the Dark God and unleash His power back into the world. In their wake, a deadly plague is spreading across the land.

Sora and her companions are the only ones who know of the plague’s true source. As the disease spreads, Sora must journey to the City of Crowns to retrieve The Book of the Named, her only hope of stopping The Shade. She and her companions arrive just in time for the winter solstice festival, a notorious two-weeks of fine wines, grand parties and legendary debauchery. Sora must don the guise of a noblewoman and infiltrate the First Tier nobility to stop The Shade before it’s too late.
Meanwhile, the assassin Crash is confronted by a ghost from his past. As he uncovers more of the Shade’s plot, he finds himself face-to-face with his old Grandmaster. Can Crash lay to rest his past, or will he succumb to his inner demon and rejoin the man who once made him a killer?"

Another great installment of the Cat's Eye Chronicles indeed and wonderfully written. I'll admit I bought this the day it was released on Kindle. You get to experience a bit more of Soda and Crash's relationship and experience more exciting danger. I must say that Ferran is growing on me and I have a new found curiosity to see further interactions between Sora and Lord Gracen Seabourne. I eagerly look forward to the next installment in the series!

In the process of book signing events and finishing up changes to the final Priestess Trilogy book, I have discovered that I have horribly neglected my blog. Well, it is a new year and, as long as my laptop continues to hold up, I shall do my best and make more frequent blog posts. Once Defiance is released, my attention shall return to writing the third installment of the Chronicles of Midgard series, Opening of Lost Doors. I know of a few devoted readers who are quite eager to get their hands on it and I, by no means, want to make them wait any longer. I myself and eager to get back to Maeja's story.

On another note, I recently finished reading Thorn by fellow author and good friend Intisar Khanani. Based off a Brothers Grimm fairytale, Thorn takes an interesting and intriguing twist of its own, following the trials faced by Princess Alyrra and the difficult decisions she is faced with. I found it highly captivating and admit that I just read nearly the entire book over the course of four hours! With each chapter, I found myself wanting to learn more and before I realized it, I had finished. Definitely a recommended read for lovers of both fantasy and fairytale. Thorn offers magic, betrayal, vengeance, and so much more. Be sure to give it a look!
