Title: Cat Sidhe (Into the Witch Lands #1)
Author: Jeff Chapman
Narrator: Jannie Meisberger
A human spirit banished to the body of a cat.
Merliss has seen centuries of change, centuries of trouble.
Something nasty has come through one of the ley gates. It walks upright. It talks. And it looks like an oversized cat, but as Merliss can attest, it doesn’t smell like a cat.
It’s a cat sidhe on the hunt for slaves, anyone with opposable thumbs. Merliss travels to unknown territories to rescue a friend and encounters more trouble making her way home. The situation on the moors is far more dire than Merliss and her friends could have imagined.
Cat Sidhe is the first in a fantasy trilogy. Join Merliss on her prowls through dangerous lands.
Different kind of fantasy than I was expecting, but interesting all the same. Merliss, banished into the body of a cat, has learned a dangerous secret. There’s danger coming, and she must sound the alarm. On the way home, however, she gets lost and must rely on the help of creatures she meets along the way to survive.
As the first in the series, this was definitely a hard hitter. While the beginning was a bit slow, it hooked me once it started to pick up. Merliss was a very strong character, and I related to her. She didn’t back down easily, and that made me root for her more.
The narration was perfect for the story.
