Kurzbeschreibung

A plague is spreading across the land. Crops are rotting. People are dying in the streets. Sora, with the help of her magical Cat's Eye necklace, is the only one who can stop it.

She must travel overseas to the Lost Isles, a place of legend and mystery. Only there can she destroy the bloodmage, Volcrian, putting an end to the curse. She is accompanied by Crash, a lethal assassin who once threatened—and saved—her life. But Sora is beginning to question her dark companion. He seems to be carrying a secret; a hidden past that could endanger them all.

Meanwhile, they are hunted by an underground society known as the Shade. For centuries, the Shade has waited for the perfect opportunity to step into the light. Now they are perilously close to resurrecting a Dark God and unleashing a wave of unimaginable destruction. They only need to collect the three sacred weapons, and Sora has already found two....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Volcrian's Hunt (The Cat's Eye Chronicles) 30. September 2013
Von Zephyr Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not sure how to describe this book. It was everything I was expecting and so much more. It picked up right where the second book left off so there was no confusion as to what was going on, and it jumped straight into the action.

Its told from a couple different point of views, but once again mainly from Sora's. I liked this but at the same time I wanted to hurry up and get back to Sora to see what was going on with her, but if it was from Crash's point of view I wanted to read slower to hear more of his inner thoughts. It was a weird feeling for me.

You get a lot more of Crash's background this time around, which was great. I have a feeling he still has things hiding up his sleeves but I got enough this time around that instead of being frustrated by that thought I'm excited to learn more about him when the time comes again. He is the one character that I'm literally dieing to know everything about, his background is just that good.

I find myself liking Sora more and more with each book. I remember thinking she wasn't anything special in the first one, but by this one I'm fully behind her and love her. She is flawed in all the right ways, she isn't whiny about how things are going for her. She excepts them even if she doesn't like it. Though she has her moments when she doubts herself, or acts like how a person her age would about certain things *cough* Crash *cough*. She has really grown a lot from the first book to here. She is constantly surprising me with the way she reacts and handles things. I really like that the main character isn't getting boring for me, if anything she gets more and more exciting.

This time around Burn kinda takes a backseat on things, though he is still around he isn't in anyway the main focus of things. I couldn't be disappointed by this because he just didn't fit into all the things that were going on and I did get enough Burn time to keep me happy.

There are a few new characters introduced in this one, though they seem to hold a bigger part to play than Liana did the last book. Though she did have her part to play this time around, I still felt like she was just there making comments and getting on every one's nerves.

The romance side of things starts to really develop in this book as well. Sometimes I just want to smack Sora and Crash's heads together and tell them to get on with things, but at the same time I love the way their relationship is moving. Not to fast and not to slow either. It feels real, they seem to get closer and closer through everything they are going through.

The plot was good, we finally get to meet the Harpies and I have to say they weren't what I was expecting them to be, but at the same time they were perfect. I could picture them being the way they are. We are also introduced to a new race as well, but I'll leave that for yourself to read about. A lot of what happened is what you would expect from this book, and if you read the first two books you really had a heads up to what was going to happen. But even knowing a lot of what was to come didn't stop me from reading so fast that I skipped paragraphs and would have to stop myself take a breath and try and force myself to slow down (which really didn't work out for me). To me it is a sign of an amazing book when I do this to myself, I ending up reading so fast because I'm excited about what's going on and want to hurry up and know what is going to happen next.

Everything flowed really well and with the way the different point of views all come together was amazing. I love when point of views meet up at some point and when this is done well I want to high five the author. A lot of different plot points got tied up nice and neat in this book, but new ones opened up at the same time.

Would I recommend this book? Heck yeah I would. I really love the Cat's Eye Chronicle's the only complaint that I have is that I have to wait for the next book to come out.

**Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.**

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fangirling is like to occur. You were warned 7. Dezember 2013
Von Inkspelled Faery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Note: This review may be less professional and longer than most because fangirling is likely to occur. You were warned.

This is by far one of my All Time Favorite series. Volcrian’s Hunt picks up a few days after Viper’s Creed left off, with Sora and Co. on board a ship destined for the Harpy islands. It doesn’t take long for the adventure/trouble to start and once it does, there’s never a dull moment! I find myself becoming more and more engrossed in this series, this world, and these characters with each new installment. This is by far one of the better books I have read and Ferran’s Map cannot arrive soon enough for me!

The plot:

This book caps off the word count at over 100k, but it felt much, much shorter. I became so caught up in the story that before I knew it I had reached the end and was yearning for more. The plot is well structured with no loopholes and a cocktail of suspense, action, and magic with a shot of romance. We learn more about the Harpies as well as their archenemies, the Unnamed or the Sixth Race, Crash’s race.

The characters:

I understand that the bad@$$ heroine has come into vogue and while I can be fond of the Xenas and Celaenas, I find a character like Sora, with a certain vulnerability and innocence, to be refreshing. Sora isn’t a fool or completely helpless, but she’s not a smoldering virago either. She does what she does for the sake of doing the right thing and while she has her fears and doubts, it’s her courage that pulls through in the end.

Crash has grown a lot since the first book, but the author still does a good job of reminding us who he is and where he comes from. That doesn’t change the fact that he is my favorite character and I have shipped him with Sora since the scene they met. He’s become very protective of her, but not in a possessive way (possessiveness is overrated in my opinion). I thought I couldn’t adore him any more, then came this one part where :SPOILER: he could have seduced Sora :END SPOILER: and you could tell he wanted to, but didn’t because he respected her and wanted what was best for her. My thoughts at that point were simple—AWESOME!!! If I didn’t already love him to bits, I certainly would now.

On a side note, Crash’s shirts seem have a rather short life expectancy in this book. I didn’t think the poor articles of benign clothing deserved their untimely demises, but if dear T.L. Shreffler disagrees…oh, well.

There was a female character called Krait introduced toward the end of Viper’s Creed of the same race as Crash. I’m not sure why, but I think I like her. She has that certain creepy zealot appeal and I’m looking forward to reading more about her. We also meet Caprion, a Harpy general who becomes fast adversaries with Crash. Caprion came across as a bit lofty and self righteous to me, but I’m kind of wondering if my opinion will change when I read Caprion’s Wings, the prequel novella set to come out in January. Apparently, Caprion and Krait have something in common according to the author’s website and I’m twisting my mind into knots trying to figure it out. I have my suspicions, but…

I thought Volcrian had lost it in the second book, but it was nothing compared to this one. He’s become a psychotic sociopath, hardly able to tell his own thoughts and desires from those of the Dark God who, unbeknownst to him, is using the mage to gain a foothold in the world of the living.

Though the bloodmage is a more than adequate villain, we also see a brief glimpse of Cerastes, Crash’s former mentor, who is bent on reviving the Dark God and ending all life. Though we meet him in only two scenes through the eyes of Krait, it is more than enough to tell he is going to be an unprecedented antihero for Ferran’s Map.

I think I’ve rambled on long enough, so I will sum up by saying this is a YA Epic Fantasy series worthy of obsession and definitely one to watch.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Best yet in the series! 30. Oktober 2013
Von leesaw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Being a perpetual reader has some downfalls.

One of them is the tedious task of trying to remember who's who and what's what when the next book in a series comes out. Often I find myself scanning the previous book and reading the last few chapters to catch myself up or else I'm confusing it with other books I've read in the same genre.

Well, that's not an issue here because the author imo is truly a master of "the recap". I decided to jump right in to book 3 and see if things would start to come back to me and I wasn't disappointed. Most of the time you didn't even realize she was recapping because it was done in such a way that flowed naturally with the progression of the story. Moving the story forward without having to take you back. Friggin fabulous!

I was so excited to see what happens with Sora that I was originally annoyed when the focus would change to other characters not in her group. However, after the first couple of chapters it slows down, and then I ended up getting completely sucked into the storyline with Lori and Ferran!

We get to see more of a relationship develop between Sora and Crash in this book, and I was happy with how it was handled. I've never been a fan of insta love, so this is right up my ally.

******this may be a bit of a spoiler for some*******

I was also very happy to see the story arch with Volcrian wrap up. It was a good call to make to keep the story fresh and move it in a different direction for the next book.

Overall I don't have anything bad to say about this series and if you love fantasy novels with a strong female lead and a touch of romance you should definitely check this one out. Reminds me of my favorite series, Emperor's Edge by Lindsay Buroker.

Very excited for book 4!

Von Nubia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I love it! Though I feel like in the end I'm left a cliff hanger. I hope there is more from this series!! Make it a tv series aing jk. Anyways I finally saw some romance between Sora and Crash! The action was amazing!! The sub character simply the best in supporting he main character. I got give them some props. Well pretty I want more stories from this series. This time the evil doers will be the sixth race (crash's descendent). How will Crash overcome his battle between his own race and his demon!! Would he ad Sora have a chance of being together? Would Crash's old master and his new pupil assassin Kiat will create between all different race? Ah! Just giving out ideas here T.L Shreffler, so you can write another novel I this series or make it new series with the same characters of course!! So I recommend to anyone because it simply the best!!

When I bought this book I thought it wasn't going to be as well written and thought out as the past two books. I was wrong, this book actually may have been my favourite of the series soap far and I can't wait for the next book to come out!
