This book is listed for kids 9 to 18 but I would recommend it for middle school kids as it may be thematically complex for younger readers and a bit predictable for older readers. It will appeal to kids who enjoy modern fantasy novels. There is a strong focus on values from a specifically Christian viewpoint with subsequent books encouraging truth seeking over blind following.
The first chapter of the book is more of a prologue, the kind often found in popular genre fiction. Not expecting that, I found it confusing. Also, I hate cats. I put the book down with no intention of picking it up again. But my brain kept reminding me of the quality of the writing so I gave it another go. Apprentice Cat is not only well written, it is an excellent story. The author balances the adventure of the main story line well with Toby and Lorn’s struggle to find their place in a new school.
For parents of precocious readers: Just as the Harry Potter series got darker in book four, the second book in this series may not be appropriate for younger readers. Fortunately, the first book stands on its own and parents can “discover” the rest of the series when their child is older.
The writing is so well thought-out that I couldn't put the book down. I like the way the author works religion into the story without preaching. This is an excellent book, and I highly recommend it.
Harry Potter for cats it may resemble in the beginning, but it doesn't limit itself to that at all as the mystery aspect does show itself more and more as the action develops, and the puzzle solving becomes a huge part of the fun. The ending is a good resolution, yet leaving room for more. Thanks to Ms. Ripple for a very fine and excellent job.
Having said that, this book needs editing by a good proofreader. Occasionally punctuation is either missing or in the wrong place. The author also sometimes uses a possessive pronoun ("your") when the contraction ("you're") is called for. There is also some misuse of "farther" & "further," "its" & "it's" and "whose" & "who's." Normally I wouldn't be so picky about the grammar, but this novel is meant for children, and they deserve to be shown words used correctly. I hope the author will make the proper corrections, at least to the Kindle edition.
Reminds me of Brian Jacques, Redwall series
I just finished apprentice and dived right into journeyman...
Can't remember if I received this free for review or not. ..
Would love to see this made into movie!
A must read for cat lovers!
Happy reading all!
