Tails Always Wins is the first book in the Chasing Tails Series by C.A. King. This is a paranormal thriller- with an interesting and thought provoking story, which has a distinct dystopian feel to it. The story is everything I have come to expect from Ms. King- well written, intriguing, engaging, dramatic- and with a bit of a hidden ‘message’. The characters are quite complex, fully developed individuals with their own unique personalities, quirks and flaws- and written so well that they seemed very realistic and believable. We are introduced to Brodie, who lives in a world where the government had imposed quite sever laws- which resulted in the extinction of several species. Now the government has targeted shifters, and Brodie is swept up in the net. He has always led a peaceful life, but now he has to choose to either face imprisonment and possible death- or join in the fight. He is sure there is more to the resistance and the situation than first meets the eye. Is there a hidden agenda? Will he uncover the truth? What will he do when the truth is revealed? And what part does Tails play in the story? All these answers and so much more can be found between the covers of this terrific story. There are challenges to be faced as this adventure unfolds. Brodie and Tails will have to work together to beat the odds and figure things out. I followed along every step of the way as these two grew and developed over the course of the story, learning much about themselves, each other, about the past, and what the future may hold. It was so well done; with a few unexpected developments I definitely didn’t see coming. What a brilliant way to start a new series. I can’t wait to see where we go from here! Bring on Book #2!
Tails Always Wins (Chasing Tails Book 1) by C.A. King is a paranormal suspense thriller and is a story about shifters and prejudices of humanity. Where shifters fight for the right to exist without fear of just being alive. A world where anything other than human is enough to put you away or find your life forfeit. It is engaging and intriguing, and as always, C.A has popped a surprise just to keep us one our toes. The story is well crafted and unique and the MC’s are likeable and their treatment will make your heartache. Then there are others that you will really, really dislike.
It is a great start to this new series and I can’t wait to see where C.A. takes us!
