Smashwords book reviews by Michael Horton

  • Cat and Meese on Jan. 04, 2012

    I rarely write reviews for books, but Cat and Meese combines two of my favorite things in fantasy (magic and guns). The writing is quick and sharp, the action is visceral, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of these characters in the future. Fans of action-oriented modern fantasy shouldn't miss it.
