There are some scary scenes for imaginative young ones. The religious aspect is still there. The editing got a bit sloppy with mixing "they're" and "their."
While I think you could read this as a stand-alone, I wouldn't suggest it. If you enjoy Harry Potter or Narnia and like cats, you would enjoy this series. If you like the Joe Grey mysteries and also like fantasy, I think you'll be interested in the series.
The setting is semi-fuedalistic with touches of scientific discovery and magic. The fact that talking cats choose to be loners or paired with humans is interesting. The fact that not all humans care for cats, and vice versa, gives depth to the story. Additionally, themes addressing the dangers of blind fanaticism and over-blown bureaucracy were balanced against gentle faith and logic.
As with many ebooks, this one could use a good proof reading. Unlike the aforementioned authors this is not an epic work...although it seems to carry the earmarks of one.
The cats of Journeyman Cat, despite their ability to speak, are very convincingly feline, from twitching eye-whiskers to a warm fine winter coat. The magic is pleasantly natural and low-key. Dialog, feline and human both, never feels forced. Death and danger are real but not overly graphic. And Christian faith feeds smoothly and convincingly into faith in the One, without ever seeming preachy. Forgiveness is a powerful theme. And somewhere there might be dragons.
Not having read book one of this series made me slightly confused at the start, but the novel really does stand alone. Clues to the past are nicely spaced, and promises for future books wait pleasingly until the end. This looks like a great read and a great series for middle-grade readers (and older) who love cats, Harry Potter, and exciting fantasy.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it
This book is another clean Christian fantasy read from Virginia Ripple, and noone need fear that the language and situations here get out of line. This one can be enjoyed by all ages. I now look forward to reading book 3. Well done!
