Book Description

Sora is having visions. Strange, terrifying visions brought on by her Cat's Eye necklace, an ancient and magical device. Spurred to action, she leaves her mother's cabin to find Crash, the mysterious assassin who once changed her life. She is certain that together, they can discover what the necklace is trying to tell her.

Crash is still on the run from the dark sorcerer, Volcrian, but now a plague is spreading across the land. Volcrian's quest for vengeance has awakened something far more evil than himself; a force that could destroy the entire kingdom. Together, he and Sora must harness the power of the Cat's Eye and kill the sorcerer before it's too late....

3.0 out of 5 stars The pounding of the serf and why language matters June 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked book one enough to immediately buy book two, and I wasn't disappointed with the story itself. There are no real plot surprises. If you are looking for something very original or suspenseful, this is probably not the book for you. The real gold in this story is the tension between the assassin, Crash, and the heroine, Sora. She manages to be strong and independent, while at the same time finding herself regularly in need of rescue. He is the greatest killing machine on Earth, but he still gives our heroine plenty of chances to rescue him as well. I find that aspect of the story interesting enough to keep me reading.

Now for the not so good stuff. First, there are lots and lots of editing issues in this story. There are timeline problems. There are internal inconsistencies in the descriptions of people and events, and there are a few logic problems as well. These are annoying, but they are also somewhat expected. The thing that I just can't get past is the butchery of my native language. In a way, I consider this story to be an indictment of the educational system in America. In reading the author's bio, I learned that she is a professional editor. I find that incredibly disheartening. Indeed, it fills me with a sense of despair. This author uses the word "taught" when she means "taut," she uses the word "reign" to mean "rein," she uses the word "bare" when she means "bear," and "barred" instead of "bared." Perhaps the word usage I found most depressing was the author's use of the word "serf" when she meant "surf." Really? Surf just isn't a hard word to get right, but it certainly illustrates the problems that arise when you use the wrong word. Who wants to listen to the pounding of the serf?

5.0 out of 5 stars You NEED this series in your life! November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Viper's Creed is a fantasy and quest lovers dream come true. The stage was set in the first book, and now in this book you just get to sit back and enjoy every single page. I completely loved it. It seemed so different than most books that I have been reading lately. Especially the romance. I am a huge fan of this series.

Viper's Creed picks up a year after Sora's Quest left off, and Sora has been staying with and training with Lori. A strange and dangerous disease starts spreading over the lands and soon Sora finds herself off on another adventure. Along with a new sidekick, and two old ones. I am not sure what I think about the new addition to the group. Something about her seems off. But I do know that I love good ole Burn and bad ole Crash. And Crash is just as closed off and enigmatic as ever.

I said before that the romance is so unlike most I have encountered in a YA book. There is no insta love, no love triangle, no long time pining. But it is still so cute to watch Sora and Crash interact. Crash is a man of very, very, very few words. So pretty much everything about him is non-verbal. You can catch glimpses of him emotions and feelings through his actions. T.L. Shreffler has done a really amazing job telling a story without much dialogue at all from Crash, and that is not something that is easy to do. I do wish we saw a little bit more of Crash's point of view. We saw glimpses, but I found myself enjoying his parts of the story the most.

The Cat's Eye series is riveting. I loved it and I would put my review pile on hold if I had book 3 right now to read it right away. The adventure is really underway now. And we got more answers in this book so now I have a better idea of the next few legs of the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent followup to Sora's Quest! October 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
At long last I get to travel with Sora, Crash and Burn again! That's what this series is, it's an adventure that Shreffler takes you on. Wether it's through Sora's eyes as she fights to save the world as well as her friends and family from the Evil that Volcrain has unleashed. Or Crash's eyes as he does what Crash does best; kill people, keep secrets and push you away. So why are these two so drawn to each other? Let's not forget Burn; the big burly Wolfie is as outspoken as ever. When their little group takes on a stray, he immediately takes her under his wing relishing in his role as protector. Volcrain, still Evil, enough said.

This story takes place a year after Sora's quest when Crash and Burn left Sora with her mother. Sora has learned a lot and grown even more determined to stop the plague that ravishes the lands. Volcrain has unleashed something even he doesn't understand in his attempt to destroy the assassin that killed his brother. The problem is the more he learns about the evil power he wields, the more he likes it and the darker his soul becomes. Crash as well is struggling to deal with his own dark side while protecting Sora on their journey to rid the world of the Wraith's and Volcrains evil magic. All the while the chemistry and attraction between Sora and Crash keeps trying to break the surface. But Volcrain is coming, he's coming for Crash and by association, Sora.

There is so much going on in this book, but it still flows well and keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens on the next page! I love Shrefflers ability to convey Crash's character with little dialogue by using lots of emotions and inner turmoil. And managing to show the selfless young women Sora is becoming while maintaining an innocence about her.
