Can a fugitive budding sorceress and her brilliant cat escape the enraged mob pursuing them?
An outburst of her newly awakened, uncontrolled sorcery talent made twelve-year-old Dory a fugitive. Trouble, her indomitable cat, led her into a walled garden minutes ahead of the mob pursuing her. There they encountered the owner, Martin, a powerful sorcerer. He listened to their story in growing excitement and offered to teach and conceal his guest – but the price would be high.
This book has a little bit of everything: a mystery, a young girl running from a bad crowd and paranormal elements. And let's not forget a clever cat. For anyone who knows these animals well, the author did a top notch job incorporating everything feline into the character and story. Despite being seemingly targeted toward a young adult audience, I think all ages will enjoy this story.
Trouble The Cat has two parts and I won’t spoil it by telling you about the second half but let’s just say it had me reading on to find out what happened to Dory and Trouble. The pacing is fast, the dialogue very natural sounding and the second part of the story has lots of action that seems to quicken the pace even more.
I found Trouble The Cat intriguing even if it wasn’t intended for an adult audience. I liked both the human and animal characters and will definitely be looking out for more books featuring this duo. It’s one to put on your must read list if you like paranormal stories and adore cats.
