This is pure furry fun. Set in an alternative reality with horse-drawn carriages the mode of transportation, young Toby must prove to his mother...and himself...he's a chip off the furry block when he applies to be an Apprentice Cat in a school for magical kitties who partner with equally magical humans. The writing is so seamless and matter of fact, the reader quickly becomes drawn into this world--magical cats? talking felines? evil magic? OF COURSE! In the book, it all makes sense. The author includes accurate cat behaviors to lend even more originality and credence to the fully drawn feline characters. Bravo!
Toby's father disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and young Toby is partnered with the nephew of the traitor who did him in. Talk about tension! Was the fellow really a traitor? What happened to Toby's father? Will he be able to uncover the bad guys (and kitties) before he suffers the same fate?
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read and will appeal to YA and New Adult readers--as well as folks like me, a much more mature cat! Four paws up!
I received Apprentice Cat as a prize in an online contest and have given it a fair and honest review.

One of the things I enjoyed about this book was the way that Ripple built the world. She never spent too much time explaining the way things were through narrative. It was almost all through dialogue. She made everything fit together well, and the world just seemed right.
I highly recommend this book! I couldn't put it down! Also superb job on the audiobook!
I think if you enjoy Harry Potter and like cats, you would enjoy this book. If you like the Joe Grey mysteries and also like fantasy, I think you'll be interested in this book. I wouldn't hesitate to let a young adult read this book.
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.
The world building and character development in this story is fantastic.
Virginia takes ordinary cats and turns them into so much more add humans and there is a partnership that epics are made from.
Cannot wait for book 2
