The Red Claw

I am so happy I got to read this arc with my 9 and 11 year old as well as fur babies (though Miss Livie Lou Who said there where to many cats and not enough dogs...what can I say chihuahua's) The rest of us enjoyed reading about Xander's travel to save Esmerelda and since reading the kids have been asking to know more about Jamaica. They want to sail their one day like Xander did. They are really looking forward to reading book number two of the series and have been following the authors blog for sneak peaks...
Thank you, Jeanne, for writing a family friendly story for thous of us in mixed human and furry families. There are few books both kids agree on and this one made the top of their lists. In fact my oldest is doing her book report on it.

I loved this book when it was published as Peacekeepers and I love it even more with the slight changes. It has a Amazingly magical story and plot. Larwin is a galactic fighter from another word where they have ruined all their natural resources so things like trees are like gold to him. He accidentally crashes his ship and ends up going through a star bridge (we call them wormholes) and ends up running into Nimri who's planet is full of natural resources. She is the tribes newest leader who is worried because she has yet to learn to use her myst and staff, and a Maddox (dragon) is coming to destroy her village, as well as her tribes rivals across the river are suspected of plotting a attack. All while she is confused about the feelings she has growing for Larwin who she believes is a Guardian (kinda like a god).

I did not think it could get much better then the first book but it did. I loved how the author mixed worlds in this book and how while it is a sequel it could be a stand alone easily. I was so happy for the Nimri updates and loved meeting new characters as well as having Kazza (a magical tiger) as a main character. (I admit Kazza is my favorite character as I am a tad bit cat obsessed.)

It felt like the kids and I waited forever for this book to come out! My daughter and her best friend compare the Purrtectors to the Warrior's cat series. I have not read that one but they love it.
I appreciate how the author always manages to touch on subjects in a round about fashion. While offering good advice/ life lessons and a dash of education.
My son loved the snake bird things in the book... while I admit they gave me the creeps.
This book has a little of everything in it alchemy, vooddoo, witchcraft, mad scientists, creepy crawlies, comedy, and so on.
If you want an unexpected adventure that will keep you guessing up until the last moments that is family friendly (ahhh or just an adult fun read).. this is worth a read.
Latitudes & Cattitudes

We loved this short story. It had the kids laughing so hard. They loved how Xander kickboxed and Merlin liked water sports. They could relate to Xander as he faced his fears and tried to do so without admitting he had any. I think this is the purrfect family read.

I have loved every book in this trilogy. The only issue I have had is it it only 3 books long! I fell in love with these characters and am going to miss them. The books can be read as a stand alone but once you fall for them a few things you will know ahead of time.
This series has magical giant cats, dragons, family bonds, star crossed lovers, people full of hate and adventure. It truly is magical. Not one time was I able to guess what would happen next or how the author would lead them out of a situation which had me on my toes. None of the books in the series I was able to put down. So warning do not open them unless you have time to get caught in a world far far away.
My fingers are personally crossed for a spin off series!

We love this series. It is perfect for any cat loving family. We loved getting to know more about Mischief in this book and the kids could relate to her antics. As an adult I can see how the series gently touches on today's big issues. I also appreciate the accurate history of disasters during the story.
If you like lizards, rats, or cats and slightly suspenseful plots this is the book for you.
