Missy the Werecat: Book I
puberty brings on her first Shift, Missy goes into the mountains for
two years until finally learning to Change back. She can Change from
fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone
assumes her two year disappearance was because she’d been kidnapped by a
sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature
a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats and no alpha.
She’s a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do
great things in today’s world, amongst humans. She only has her
instincts to guide her and those drive her to train herself to extremes.
She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often
necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong
controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.
Missy the Werecat by P. G. Allison
Have you ever longed to know just what to say or what to do in almost any situation? Have you ever wanted to find justice for another while finding the perfect punishment for the tormentors? Meet Missy, a young teen who has suddenly become a werecat. No warning, no family history she was aware of, nothing. Instead of crumbling to pieces, she lives in the wild for two years, as her family and the world search for and mourn her. An accident brings Missy home, older, wiser, more self-confident, no longer the young girl she was. Evil is lurking, hitting close to home and Missy finds a way to bring justice to the victims. From electronic surveillance to brute force, she takes on one monster after another. Using a thought-process far beyond that of her age, and of most humans, period. Her one fault was her obsession with her body, how good she looks, how developed she had become.
Missy the Werecat by P. G. Allison was a huge surprise! I had no previous knowledge of this book, nor read reviews prior to reading. What starts out as what appeared to be a middlegrade/YA read, from the simplicity of the presentation to the fantasy with a young heroine who is independent and brilliantly daring, suddenly crossed appropriate age groups into what I would find in an older YA, NA novel. A wonderful mystery, adventure grew up before my eyes! I can’t say I was totally pleased. What showed tremendous promise as a delightful and strong enticement for the middlegrade, YA age group attempted to draw in an older group with many of the events. As one or the other, this proves to be a well-delivered presentation, but as a blend, it misses on both counts.
I was disappointed that I had not found a book to share with my grandchildren, young or old.
I received a review copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
