The beginning has you gritting your teeth at the horror happening.
It starts out going back in time to the Great War and is very upsetting with all the evil and treasonous things happening that make up some of the past history of the Sarafin and the war between the Curizan and Valdier.
I will admit to liking this story very much but not loving it. Found it missing that trademark spark of Ms Smith and lacking the humorous and romantic aspect of the previous books.
Thought the actual Heart of the Cat philosophy was sweet. It is what is inside your heart that matters.
I found it slow going at a couple of parts and then felt rushed at the ending.
Did not do this series justice and has left a lot of things open ended.
It was just too condensed with what happens to Raul, Vlad getting away, with no descriptive explanation from any point of view. We then are jumping weeks and months ahead
Things must be carried over in future books but I do like a tidier ending.
What happened with Vlad the Hunter? His being able to get away from a Sarafin Prince was shocking. He must be returning in Katarina’s, the sisters, story. Did they get any information from Ranker?

I have really enjoyed the offshoots from the Valdier series and had high expectations for this book. After all, Riley and Tina's stories were action packed and most importantly, they were full of humour. I mean who doesn't enjoy a cat shape-shifter being tasered?
Unfortunately, I found that this book lacked the humour of the previous books and the lead in to the main event was quite long. Maybe it concentrated a little bit too much on the introduction of new characters, who will probably have their own books.
There has now been 3 Sarafin books but only 1 Curizan. I am hoping that Ms Smith returns to giving them more attention in the future.
Until then, enjoy peeps 😉
Some time later, the Princess now married to human Ivan and living with their two daughters in isolation, caring for wild big cats, when she is killed by poachers for her coat. The poacher suddenly sees, at first two big cats, but looking again sees a small girl and a woman.
Meanwhile, Walk'r d'Rojah, chasing the traitors has arrived in a strange place. He has been sent to find the artefact Heart of the Cat and return it to Sarafin. After stopping one traitor, he is accidentally injured and taken to a sanctuary for care. The sanctuary call on the help of big cat expert Trescina Bukov. With confusion and misunderstandings before all is revealed and all ends well.
Lots of laughter
Truly a great book to read
Can't wait for the next book
You've really done great with this story
