About CC Wyatt

For C.C., the joy of reading came later in life. When it did, it was as if she'd been placed under a spell with the desire to read. It wasn't until her imagination started going wild that she realized her desire to read had evolved into something else. At first, she didn't know what to do with the images; she just wanted them to go away so that she could get some sleep. But it didn't take long to realize that it was time to pick up a pen.

She resides in Arizona with family and friends.

"Ferret” by C.C. Wyatt is a brilliantly crafted story, original and with amazing, believable world-building (even for being a paranormal/fantasy) and Wyatt’s writing really is really descriptive and easy to follow. I liked how this story started off really intriguing (with us learning about the weird experience Pia had) and just got bigger and more complex. It is romance/fantasy/mystery/suspense all in one, but is more surreal than many I’ve read. Not only is it beautifully written, but it is impressively complex and layered, with an almost psychological edge that makes you really think—just the way I like my fantasies, and I suppose my reading generally. And while it still has the familiar vibe that most standard YA/NA Paranormals have, it still feels fresh and original enough and is definitely unpredictable, especially towards the end. I chuckled at some of the dialogue and really enjoyed watching Pia and Cameron ‘evolve’ as the story progresses, and was genuinely surprised by the ending. But it worked perfectly and makes us want the next one ASAP!. Recommend for fans of Paranormal/scifi who want a more complex, original tale than most that’s out there.

"Ferret” by C.C. Wyatt was an entertaining, emotional, almost surreal, fantasy/sci-fi novel that pushes the boundaries of typical YA literature. It probably took me until almost half way through to really get hooked, but once I was, I was all in and didn’t want to put it down until I was finished. I’ve read a lot of teen/young adult and it’s hard to surprise me, but this book did more than once. I am in awe of the author’s imagination and ability to weave together a story that is both fun, but also complex enough to keep us interested and has several good messages for younger readers to consider. It was actually quite profound at times, especially at the end. Well-written and unpredictable, even if it does contain some familiar tropes necessary for a YA paranormal/romance. C.C. Wyatt gives a unique spin on the magical-heroine-adventure motif, and I don’t feel like it’s just a clichéd re-telling. In fact, I’ve never read anything that felt like this before, and it was entirely unpredictable. Oh, loved that Oprah makes a cameo too, haha. This is the first book in a series so the story is only just beginning – can’t wait to see what happens next! Appropriate for most ages, teen on up. Recommend.

wow, what a crazy ride! I’m not one for rehashing the plot (that’s what the summary is for on the book description page), but trust me when I say you’ve never read anything like this before! This is a great book for high-schoolers on up, and I thought it had a great combination of creativity, mystery, and intelligence, paranormal activity, friendship, family, danger, facing challenges, learning to be strong, overcoming adversity and obstacles….. I like how everything came together at the end, but I do almost feel like the ending was very rushed and abrupt… almost anticlimactic after all that had happened! But it does wrap up nicely in a way (explains some things to us) but also leaves us wanting more! C.C. Wyatt writes descriptions very well without overdoing it, and I almost felt like I was watching a movie at times. Pia is a fun and likable heroine who grows as the story progresses, and even thought it has all sorts of YA/fantasy/romance tropes that are quite commonplace, Wyatt’s unique take is one that I haven’t read before and I thought it was great. Great supporting cast all around, and while I would have preferred more of a solid conclusion (this one is quite bittersweet and is unfinished for the next book), overall I very much enjoyed it and was more impressed than I expected to be. Will definitely want to read book 2 when it is available. Hopefully not too long! Recommend for ages 14 and up.

I really enjoyed “Ferret” by C.C. Wyatt for many reasons, but I think what I liked the most about this book was just the overall feel the author managed to create where it felt intimate, like a close friend was telling me this really awesome story that I didn’t want to stop listening to, with more ups and downs than a twisted roller coaster. We really feel like we are inside Pia’s head experiencing it all with her- really INSIDE the story as opposed to being on the outside looking in (which seems to happen so much!) There are some surprising parts that really catch you off guard… but that just made the book even more addicting. Loved the Bermuda Triangle element and while I don’t normally love time travel as a plot device it does work well here. Great tension throughout and it was unlike anything I’ve read before and I read a lot, especially YA. Great pacing and editing. I hope the next book is published soon because that is a serious cliffhanger ending!

just a heads up…when starting “Ferret” by C.C. Wyatt make sure you don’t have anywhere you need to be or anything you need to do because you won’t want to stop reading until you’ve finished it all!! Trust me on this! The book starts off with an intriguing beginning that establishes the strange experience that Pia had, as well as taking her back to the place where it happened (beach house in Florida) and intrigue of the mystery in her life. We then meet the other characters (Cameron, Stephanie, Brian, etc) and we slowly learn how everything is connected while she experiences these strange hallucinations. The main characters are so well-developed and fully realized, I feel like I know them personally, and I commend Ms. Wyatt for just how authentic it all felt – like how teens really think and talk and act. There are some pretty standard elements here, naturally, but I thought that Wyatt did a terrific job of making the story completely her own and unique in its own right, and also incorporated more emotional issues that teens can relate to. I could see this having cross-genre appeal so even if YA romance/fantasy/action isn’t your fave, the terrific scene-building, suspenseful and action-packed plot, and engaging, authentic characters and beautiful writing will appeal to a wide variety of readers. Hope part 2 is available soon! Recommend.

"Ferret” by C.C. Wyatt is one of the more interesting and creative YA/ paranormal/ mystery novels I’ve read lately! I was completely drawn in from the opening pages as we meet Pia (and her family and friends) and Pia is troubled over a mysterious incident in which she has “lost” a night of her life and doesn’t know how or why. She also has these strange ‘visions’ and is trying to figure out what it all means. Enter the sexy Cameron and things really start to get interesting. I won’t give too much away, but I was surprised that even for a premise that sounded familiar enough in this genre, it felt very fresh and unpredictable, and not like something I’ve read a million times before, which is refreshing (and rare in this genre!). I think that C.C. Wyatt has a great ‘voice’ for writing YA, as the dialogue was very authentic and the narrative was very well written (and flawless editing!) Lots of mysterious events happen in this book to keep us engaged throughout, and it was a fun escape from reality, and had a totally action-packed ending that nearly left me breathless… and on a cliffhanger (almost mid-scene). I will say that I am NOT a fan of that, especially when the next book is not available yet (or even any mention of when it would be). So I deduct half a star for that, but otherwise I loved it. Looking forward to the next one, and I recommend to fans of YA/NA fantasy/scifi/suspense/romance.
