Publisher's Summary

Jacky Leon is a member of the strongest werecat family alive; a family that commands the loyalty of every werecat that walks the face of the earth. Her family is the definition of power, and none have dared challenge that for millennia. It’s not a legacy she’s comfortable with, but it’s the one she’s been given, and Jacky is resolved to do her best with her new responsibilities.

When rogue werecats begin to test Jacky’s territory, paranoia mounts as questions go unanswered and lives are potentially at stake. The greatest werecat family of all time is about learn a valuable lesson, and Jacky is going to have to suffer the most before it’s through with them.

Loyalty is worthless when it’s broken.

Good, Just Missing Something

If I've gotten this far, it's most likely I'll finish this series, so nothing to worry about there. With that in mind, please understand that the next part of my review is just what I would like to see more (or less) of. If I didn't like the series this much, I wouldn't spend time finding out what's keeping me from putting it in my top 10.

1. The is a large world. There are werewolves. Werecats. Vampires. Fairies. Werekitsunes. Witches. And many other supernatural creatures that roam the land. When these beings (who aren't werewolves or werecats) are introduced, they are barely explained or utilized throughout the text. Sure, we get to interact with a fairy in the first book, but do we get to speak with him again? No. Sure, his gift is used through the series, but we never really get any follow-up from him. As for the half-witch from the first book? She's gone. I actually forgot about witches until the end of this book. And yes, we got vampires in the second book, but the type who are introduced as enemies and without morals. There are civilized vampires out there--these are the people I want to hear more about. I suppose the short of it is, the world is literally at the tip of your fingers but we've barely interacted with it. I feel as though we are just skimming on the surface and I'm getting antsy.

2. There is a pattern in this writing style that I can't "unsee" now that I've caught on--there's a lot of repetition to solidify points. Example: Jacky does something and explains why she does it to readers. Another character comes in and is angry at Jacky for doing that something. Jacky then repeats the same reasoning why she did something, gets angry about it, and then the other character is like--oh! Okay, I get it now. And then the other character finds more characters and repeats Jacky's story all over again. That group then has their own aha moment, and the process continues. This particular framing device occurred frequently in the second book but still lingers in the third.

3. I feel like this book would have been better as the 2nd one. That way there were direct circumstances from the first book. By introducing this plot point right now, it just feels too late. And I know that family bonds are stronger and relationships are better here, but it felt like the second book was just filler to get to this one. Or if there had to be a second book that focused on family ties, I wish the plot really had been concerning book one's consequences instead of a hive of unruly vampires.

4. The first part of this book was slow. No getting around that. We are introduced to two characters that end up not being permanent to the story around halfway through. In fact, all that these two characters did, all of their hard work, literally goes into flames. What was the point of having them come in if their characters weren't going to be utilized in the rest of the story?

Okay, those were my gripes or the thoughts that just wouldn't leave my head while listening to the audiobook. Here are a few quick reasons why I will keep reading because, heck, I'm already sad that I have to part ways with Jacky.

1. Loving the slow burn romance. I think Heath and Jacky are totally adorable.
2. I like seeing and learning more about Jacky's werecat family.
3. Very excited that we may see more of Jacky's human family in book 4.
4. When there's action in this series, it's always very engaging and fast-paced.
5. Love Jacky 10/10

Ready for the fourth book! Too bad audible doesn't have it yet :-(

Another great one in the series

This is the 3rd book in the series and I can’t wait to listen to more. You get a better idea of how Jacky’s family works and who everyone is and you get to watch how Jacky’s character grows. I’m really enjoying listening to this series!

Awesome. I can’t wait for more

This book does the first two even better. The narration by Savannah Gilmore was outstanding. It boggles my mind how she can use so many voices and always spot on.

This book is a wonderful escape into a mystical world right here at home. Thank you.

Another TSTL Heroine

So werecats, according to the author, have an awesome sense of smell. They can smell a cut gas line from a long ways off but can’t smell explosives in a house while inside it? Little things like that are making me crazy about this series. I’m done with it. Narrator is ridiculous with main and love interest. I gave 2 stars because it is an original idea.

A slow burn that won't stop drawing you in

Normally i would find a book where it takes this long for character development and world building to happen to be really annoying. However the stories within each book are compelling and interesting enough that i find myself oddly not minding the long wait for the romance or the deeper intrigues of the world. I'm not sure how the choosing of a narrator works, but however it happened i don't think there could be a more perfect match for a werecat loner than Suvannah Gilmore. She has a certain low growl to her voice that just screams don't ef with me. I dig it a lot. I love the interactions Jacky has with her family and hope to see them a lot more. I'm not sure if i like Jacky and Heath though, their dynamic seems a little off to me. Maybe i'm just sexist and am not used to the man taking the beta role, but it seems to me that Heath relies on Jacky far more than she does him. He usually helps her despite her wishes rather than because she wants him to. Seems like to me that would irk a guy's pride if he had to run away from trouble over and over again, because his girlfriend doesn't think he could handle it. Don't get me wrong, they are cute with their dancing around how they feel about one another, but for now the relationship doesn't feel very balanced. Possibly something they will have to work on later. The book itself was great, the only real problem i had at any point was the same problem i have with a lot of urban fantasy books. I don't really get the whole putting humanity on some kind of sacred pedestal thing. Why exactly is the ability to die of old age so coveted in these types of books? Why is having super powers seen as a tragedy? As a person with a disability listening to someone with super...everything whining about how they just want to be "normal" just feels insulting, exasperating, and bewildering at times. "Awww you have super senses that make it possible to perceive the world better than anyone else in the world. That's so horrible!!! i'm so glad i'm blind and have a brain that could kill me at any moment with out a special medical device drilled into my skull, because it means i'm human." LMAO Yeah totally relatable. Anyway besides that silly emo crap, which again is pretty common for urban fantasy, this book earned every one of the five stars i gave it.
