Rezension

Sora wächst in einem noblen Haushalt auf. Doch als ihr Vater sie verheiraten will, fasst sie einen Plan: Die Flucht. Sie möchte sich auf die Suche nach ihrer leiblichen Mutter begeben. Doch an dem Abend ihres Geburtstagsballs kommt alles anders als erwartet. Ihr Vater wird umgebracht – und zwar von dem Assassinen, der sie kurz daraufhin kidnapped, obwohl sie doch weglaufen wollte. Schon bald wird ihr klar, dass sie auch vor ihm und seinem Kumpanen Dorian fliehen muss – doch bei diesem Versuch gerät sie in die Fänge der königlichen Leibgardisten und wird des Mordes an ihrem eigenen Vater bezichtigt. Befreit wird sie durch ihre Kidnapper selbst und beschließt, nun eine Gesetzlose, vorerst mit ihnen gemeinsam zu reisen. Doch die Tragweite der Geschehnisse wird Sora erst bewusst, als sie erfährt, dass sowohl Crash, der Assassine, als auch Dorian selbst von einem mächtigen magischen Wesen gejagt werden. Und nur Sora und ihre Katzenaugenkette, kann ihnen helfen, zu überleben…

Mit dem Debüt „Sora’s Quest“, dem ersten Band der „Cat’s Eye Chronicles“ schafft Autorin T.L. Shreffler eine phänomenale Geschichte ohne Gleichen. Die Story? Rasant, Emotional, überraschend und humorvoll, tränenraubend und sehnsüchtigmachend. Die Charaktere? Unglaublich nah, authentisch, ein perfektes Wechselspiel von retten und gerettet werden, Aufopferung und Hingabe, eine Harmonie von unglaublicher Vielfalt und voll unterschiedlichster Gefühle. Das Setting? Der Traum eines jeden Fantasyfreaks und genau das, was sich ein Leser wünscht – Details, wo Details hinsollen, Informationen, wo welche sein müssen, Cliffhanger, welche die Atmosphäre zum Zerreißen gespannt machen.

Das erste Buch dieser Reihe erfährt einen spannenden Auftakt. Die Geschichte ist interessant und in recht schönem Stil verfasst. Wenige und vor allem wenig störende Ungereimtheiten und nicht unbedingt sehr tiefgründige Charaktere fallen dabei nicht sonderlich negativ auf.
Wie bereits erwähnt, der Auftakt der Chroniken ist angenehm zu lesen und interessant genug, um auch die nächsten Bände zu erwerben und zu erfahren, wohin die Geschichte noch und schlussendlich hinführen wird.

Ist nicht besonders tiefgründig - aber sehr gut zu lesen, spannend und unterhaltsam. Genau das richtige um abends abzuschalten. Ein paar Ungereimtheiten in der Story fallen auf - tun aber dem Lesevergnügen keinen Abbruch. Band 2 und 3 sind ebenfalls erhältlich.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Editing is important, people. 26. September 2015
Von Julie Shuff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Has a lot of promise, but someone seriously needs to edit for consistency. The main character doesn't like wine, yet she knows what a wine hangover feels like. She had a dagger in her satchel when she ran away, but when Crash buys her two daggers she claims to never have used one. They take their horses into the bog with them, and then exit the bog on foot (presumably they were left before or after our merry band was captured by cat-people). It's like one of those movies where things are added for convenience but make absolutely no sense. Sora is helpless and can't fight, but knows how to identify a rapier on sight from "her past fencing lessons." A little too convenient if you ask me, and at times blatantly contradictory.

The plot is not bad, and the idea of different magical beings is intriguing, but I felt like I was going insane throughout the entire book, wondering why what I was reading contradicted what I had read a few pages before. It was compared to Tamora Pierce on the front jacket, but to me that seems a bit blasphemous at this point.

On a side note, I doubt it was a coincidence that the characters' names were Crash and Burn....

3.0 von 5 Sternen When is a Good Book Not a Good Book? 23. Januar 2016
Von Gordon A. Long - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
When is a good book not a good book? When there are so many writing errors that readers are constantly removed from their immersion in the action.
Miss Shreffler’s writing is very smooth with a reasonable number of grammar and punctuation errors, but still shows a great need for good editing.
Positives
At first glance, this should be a four- or five-star book. The story line is good. The main character is empathetic (although a spoiled twit at the start, but that’s the point) and develops realistically through the story. There is plenty of action, great suspense, and good management of conflict. Many youngsters without a great deal of reading experience may consider it a good read.
However…
The whole book is full of errors that should have been picked up by a good editor:
1. She hides in the back of a broom closet, but somehow can still see out to scan the hallway.
2. “The man pressed against the horse and the beast leapt into a gallop.” How do you “press against a horse” to make it go?
3. One moment her father’s estate is going to be broken up and given to distant relatives, but a few pages later his younger brother shows up and takes over.
4. Her father was killed by a weapon from the side, but she saw the assassin on the roof.
5. One man is described as lean and wiry, but later he has a broad back. In fact, all the men are dark and wiry, with broad backs. I found the two supporting characters, Crash (now, there’s a medieval name) and Dorian, undistinguishable from each other in their attitudes, their actions and their speech. Except for Dorian’s wolf ears, of course.
It is not my intent to drive this book into the ground with examples of bad writing, only to give enough to demonstrate that it is a serious problem that could have and should have been solved before publication.
Genre Fiction
And last, the book is missing the atmospheric “voice” of the sword-and-sorcery genre. It is full of expressions like, “let’s cut out” and “gross.” I know that for many young people the 1950s and 60s seem like a long time ago, but not exactly medieval, please. In the opening scene, the heroine performs a ritual dance in boots with 6-inch heels. This is an image lifted from a Playboy porn flick. What we end up with is a medieval fantasy with the voice of a modern paranormal work.
So, while this young writer shows great promise, she has a standard Indie Writer flaw of having done a whole lot of writing without anyone coaching her on her mistakes so that she can correct them. I suspect she writes quickly and intuitively, without going back and looking at the work later to see what it actually communicates to the reader.
I must rate the book by its overall merit, and urge the author to get the appropriate assistance that all writers need to hone their craft.

Meeeeeehhhhhhh. The main character was obnoxious, at least in the beginning, and a lot of the decisions made didn't make any sense. I finished it, but I couldn't be bothered to read the next one.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not quite as good as I remembered 12. September 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I first read this book years and years ago on Fictionpress, I think, and then on the author's website. I remember it being such a compelling story with an amazing romance. Well, years later, I remembered the name of the story and decided to look for it here on Amazon, where I was happy to find it as an e-book. Unfortunately, the book isn't quite as amazing as I had remembered.

First of all, the positives: the story is very readable. The author has worked to flesh out characters, create convincing dialogue, etc. There's no doubt that the author is a good writer. The two main characters both have some development over the course of the book. I like the romance between them still, because it is subtle, and it is just budding in this first book.

The negatives: I dislike reading books where the hero or heroine doesn't ask questions. Even the best books have this downfall sometimes. I can understand why Sora wouldn't ask questions at the beginning, because Crash is pretty scary, but within a few days she's at home with them, and still doesn't ask them anything. We have no idea where they are going. Why didn't Crash just kill her when he first ran into her? The reason given, that she had seen him, so he had to bring her, is really weak. Also, they know she's the daughter of the man killed, even though she's dressed like a peasant and never tells them. And only days into their journey, they arm her and teach her out to fight. That just doesn't really jive. Is she a prisoner, or isn't she? Sora wonders this once or twice, but once again, doesn't ask questions. And anytime she snaps and asks questions, someone laughs heartily and admires her spirit. Really?

I agree with another reviewer that the world-building is a bit weak. Now, I know some of the secrets, because when I first read this book, some scenes were in different places, and I'm pretty sure I got to read most of the story, even parts not included in this book. But I think to someone completely unfamiliar with the book, that part would feel a bit weak.

Another thing that bothers me is that 16 seems way too young an age for Sora. Maybe that's just me, but if you're going to have a main character who falls in love with an assassin, it just seems a bit easier to swallow if she's not practically a child.

Will I keep reading? Probably, out of sentimentality--I remember really loving this story, and I am interested in continuing to find out what happens.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly Good 5. Februar 2016
Von Empty=P - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I've been gathering up free kindle books lately, looking for something good and light to read, and after a million badly written and poorly thought out self published novels, I found this gem. The writing is quite good and the story is interesting and fast paced enough to hold the reader's attention. This isn't a deep thinking novel or anything like that, but it's great for it's genre and for those of us who occasionally need to put down our super-meaningful-filled-to-the-brim-with-symbolism-and-irony books and just read something fun. It's a well crafted fantasy with an interesting and refreshingly unique world. The heroin, Sora, is fairly realistic. Some people who need buff warrior women might not like that she gets hurt in fights all the time and has to be saved quite a bit, but really, do we honestly want a girl who has never fought before to suddenly be macho woman just because she's thrown into an adventure? So I say she's real, her skills only come after she works for them and not out of some magical I'm a woman so I am capable of all things mumbo jumbo. I think she's a great heroin because she just keeps trying no matter how many times she gets beat up. I'll try to be vague so as to not spoil things, but I think her discontent when she finally gets what she thinks she wants is also satisfyingly realistic. I won't spoil who the "hero" is because it's an interesting development readers should experience for themselves (I kept going back and forth on who I thought was going to be the "good guy" and the "bad guy." The villain just makes me sad inside, which usually mean he/she was created well. There is one part near the end where I felt like there was an unrealistic shift in the character's attitudes/actions towards each other, and I think it happened in the name of romance, but it wasn't so bad that I'd skip reading this book or anything. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a quick, action pact, fantasy with interesting characters on their way to development.

very short synopsis-I'll try to be generic and not give anything away!:
Sora is a noble of the second tier. She's discontent with her dull life and affectionless father, and so on the eve of her coming out she decides to run away. An assassin spoils her plans by murdering her father and inadvertently kidnapping her. Sora ends up in a dangerous situation with an assassin and two wolvens (magical beings thought to be extinct). Unfortunately for Sora, her disappearing at the same time as her father's murder puts her under suspicion.
