Link to buy Missy the Werecat
Story Rating: 3 out of 5
When 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.
I do love shifter books and PG Allison is a new to me author. this was a good story, I did wonder if the writer was used to writing papers of if she was a professor because this was very detailed to the point of explaining more than the reader needs to know. This also brings the book to a bit over 300 pages.
I like the concept of what the writer was trying to convey but it took a bit for me to actually get into the story, I did find myself drifting a couple of times.
The story wrapped itself around some dark subjects and made it more difficult to read. This book definitely needs a warning label that it is not intended for readers under 18.
