Gotham Kitty Kindle Edition
This heartwarming imaginative story is about a half-feline half-human extraterrestrial, Catusapien, from another galaxy, who escapes her cell aboard a Brozian insectoid cargo vessel and flees in an escape pod after the ship slips into a wormhole and spits out into the Milky Way Galaxy. The spaceship explodes in mid-air and crash lands in the forest of Arusha National Park in Tanzania right before Allison Banes' very eyes, who is in East Africa working on a Doctor of Philosophy degree in zoology from Cornell University. She discovers the Catusapien sleeping next to the escape pod, takes the alien to her house for observation and names her Kitty. What Allison doesn't know is that according to Chagga prophecy, the alien is necessary to partake in a ritual that will end the nearly two hundred-year-old supernatural curse of the Evil Shadowy Figure, a havoc wreaking spirit, on the Bantu tribe. Desperate to stop the ritual from happening, the Evil Shadowy Figure, wants to eliminate the alien and anyone who gets in its way including Allison Banes. While members of the Chagga try to find the alien, Cassidy Mkama, an 11-year-old African girl, stumbles upon her in the forest surrounding Lake Duluti. They soon form a lifelong bond and Cassidy names her Gotham Kitty.
" besides the extraterrestrial life, the story is fairly grounded and feels like a story focused on characters rather than wild sci-fi ideas. This helps readers build a strong connection to the characters" - Literary Titan --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The scenes with Alison and Kitty are some of the best I have ever read in my entire life. Had the book been solely focused on this relationship and the hijinks that could have been, it would have made this book possibly the finest book ever written. That this literary gem is merely part of the story is a touch melancholy for me.
There were parts of this book that simply passed over conceivably great scenes. I could have read a book about the life of Kitty living in a treehouse and never gotten bored.
Fans of sci-fi that mixes with paranormal will want to read this book. There are scenes of intense thriller that could captivate a reader. A book that could mean something different to each reader. A creative story that could have been so much more if it had been a little less.
