Review

"If you are a fan of shifter stories, than you will really love this. You've got wolves and panthers, but on top of that this story also has demons and vampires. Really, its terrific. The sexual tension and chemistry between Z and Fiona is palpable. You are on pins and needles waiting for "the moment"."  -- Fictional Candy

"Fast-paced, lively, and entertaining, The Catalyst was an intriguing and sexy read. I enjoyed agoraphobic witch Fiona and her escapades with were-panther Z as they share responsibilities in watching over a werewolf pup, a therian."  -- Reader Girls Blog

"I really loved Fiona. Her agoraphobia, and surprisingly enough, the fact that she still had her v-card. That's not normally something I enjoy in contemporary heroines, but it just fit with her character much better than the alternative.

...

I loved Cain. Somehow I never really saw him as the protective type, but I really enjoyed seeing that side of him in this."  -- Romanceaholic.com

**Without including spoilers** The Catalyst begins to tie the preternatural characters together, as well as, set the stage for something dramatic! The romance between Z and Fiona feels secondary compared to the action and events taking place in the book, however, it doesn't diminish the story in any way. I also recommend reading BloodLust & Save my Soul before this one. Zoe's books can stand alone but to really enjoy this one you will need the back story! I have thoughly enjoyed the preternatural series but, I have to admit Cain is by far my favorite Zoe character! I look forward to his story,LifeCycle, the most!

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down, except I had to work *frowns*. It is the third book in the series. Book one was actually three short stories, which were great short reads. Book two wasn't as good in my opinion, but still a good read. This one really sealed the deal for me on this series. We have a agoraphobic novice witch and a very dominate and independent panther. Oh, and there is a werewolf pup who was born as a pup and can't shift human until he is 4 or 5. How cute is that?

So, the panther finds the pup and takes him, except the pup wanders. He is found by the witch who ventured out to get the mail. The panther proceeds to kidnap her to get her to babysit will he finds the pup's pack.

This book brings back many characters from the previous two books. So, we have witches, demons, vampires, shifters (both panther and wolf), did we miss anyone? I don't think so, oh wait, a witch that is quite corporeal. That covers it. Just an all around great story. I will be starting book four tomorrow.

Zoe Withers is a lovely writer so reading her books is not exactly a difficult feat. There is also good continuity with the previous books in the series to orientate us back into the world she has created. One of the qualities of her writing that appeals is that her characters always have distinctly human qualities, annoying at times, but always lending them a vunerability that keeps us interested. In this case our were-panther has no idea of romance but we still fall in love with him just like our heroine. She cries and he is at his wits end. It is delightfully sweet and captivating. Can't wait to read the next one.

I like how all her characters are not what they seem.
Anthony from an earlier book, was the ,"hero" in the previous book,
In catalyst he was the villain. Another twist.
This is the story of all the characters from her preternatural series.
They enter twine thru all the novels "so far"😊

Dreadful. Just dreadful. I actually enjoyed the first book. The characters were compelling and eventually worthy of their happiness. This book goes in 13 different directions at once. And by the end, most of the characters are just weak and undeserving of happiness. The King of the Vampires is willing to muscle/go to war with the werewolf pack because his political position is weak. And his wife allows him while standing there wringing her hands. The werewolf crawls into a bottle and almost loses control of his pack and is willing to do anything to get his wife back even if she's a sex demon. But that's OK because this author sneers at the idea of Christian heaven as a boring, sexless place. Naturally, the heroes are all demons because sex is fun, angels make demons because they feel sorry for them, and God is just a snooze. I love a great paranormal story. I love great, steamy writing. Sadly, this book provides neither.

Oh, man. There were so many little things I liked about this book - Fiona's agoraphobia, her ineptitude in spell casting, her social awkwardness, Z and his rocking bachelor pad. Did I like the lengths Z went to to make sure Fiona would help him? Well... no, but it did shock her out of her very regimented life and forced her to reevaluate her fears. Frankly, the fact that she allowed the whisperings of the birds to dictate how far she was willing to walk from her front door tells me that she desperately needed a good shaking up.

Now, I did have some problems remembering who Jane and Cole were and how they fit into the overall world at first. It's been a while since I read the first book and their characters didn't pop into my head right away. However, once I placed them, I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting their tumultuous relationship. As long as I'm on the subject of reoccurring characters... Cain! Love the dude. His book is going to be so fun. I can't wait to see him fall and fall hard! And Father Hadrian. Wow. His story should be very interesting.

While I enjoyed the story overall, I wouldn't have minded a little more time spent with our hero and heroine. I do love the setup we're getting for the overriding arc but Fiona and Z were interesting and I felt like we spent a lot of time with Cain, the demons and the wolves when we could have been watching Fiona and Z get all tangled up emotionally in one another. Still, I did like the book and I'm excited by the hints we got about upcoming shenanigans.

Zoe Winters has fast become one of my all time favorite authors. From the Blood Lust Trilogy all the way to this newest book in the Preternaturals series, she continues to write books that are easy to fall into an in love with. She artfully weaves all the various characters to create a flawless and entrancing series. I can't wait to find out what happens next in Life Cycle.
