Poor Thomas everyone wants him but he refuses to become someone's pet familiar. He finds that there is a magical world coexisting with the normal human one, and now he's definitely on the wrong side of the line and there is no way back. Action, danger, magic, mystery, shocking discoveries, and daring escapes keep Thomas quite busy but throughout he maintains his ethics and personal honor. This is a really different idea than your normal paranormal, magical fantasy. Off hand the only other series with a familiar as the focal point that I can think of would be Dara Joy's "Rejar" and some others in her Matrix of Destiny Series. Unfortunately for Thomas, he has lost his human body at this point and can't switch back.
“This was no fantasy kingdom of wonder from a children’s book full of oddly flavored jelly beans.”:
Synopsis: “When Thomas Khatt awakens to the magical world following the sudden, violent death of his elderly Archmagus neighbor, he doesn’t get the standard package of awesome power combined with a hero destiny. Nope, he trades his thumbs in for a tail, tawny fur and four feet with a very low co-efficient of friction on linoleum. His destiny as one of three talking mountain lions in the magical world? To be sold at auction and bonded to some pimply faced apprentice for life.
Thomas would rather eat dirty kitty litter.
Armed only with an impressive set of chompers and buckets of snark, Thomas faces off against a lightning-bolt throwing granny and a sexy union recruiter as he desperately tries hold the threads of his old life together. To stay off the leash he’ll have to take advantage of the chaos caused by the Archmagus’ death and help the local Inquisition solve his murder. A pyromaniac squirrel, religious werewolves, and cat-hating cops all add to the chaos as Thomas attempts to become the first Freelance Familiar.”
Thomas Khatt, a man without a lot going for him, suddenly finds his existence turned upside down when he witnesses the violent death of his next door neighbor. There's much more to it than that as he wakes in his home to find he's become a cougar. Not that kind, the kind with fur and a tail.
After that, he's rudely submerged into the world beyond the Veil, where magic exists and magi turn animals like him into their personal servants to help them with their spells.
It's a rousing action story told in a world within our own, but hidden by mystic forces so that we mundanes can't see it. The characters are outstandingly created. The details describing the transition of Thomas' body and mind from man to cougar is just amazing! The plot is never dull for even a split-second. I am looking forward to the next installment!
I give this debut novel from Daniel Potter five stars, and call it a Khatagorically Stupendous Read!
PS - The few pieces of artwork found in the e-book are ASTOUNDING!
