Sora's Quest (Cat's Eye #1)
MAY 18TH-19TH ONLY
Sora planned on running away from her wedding, but she never expected to be kidnapped! Dumped into a world of magical races, arcane jewelry and forgotten lore, she finds herself at the mercy of a dangerous assassin, haunted by an even darker past. She yearns for freedom, but he won’t let her go—not when her Cat’s Eye necklace is the only thing that can save his life.
But the necklace itself presents a problem. It is an ancient device from the long forgotten War of the Races, and its magic has the ability to steal souls. Can Sora learn to wield its power—or will the power wield her? (Winner of the SKOW 2006 Best Fantasy Award)
Sora's Quest is getting five star reviews!
What Makes YA Beautiful: "Sora’s Quest gets a big high five from me because it’s as close to completely original as it can get. The story is full of non-stop adventure, a cast of characters that are hilarious as much as they’re relatable and a slow-burning romance that’ll leave you hanging mercilessly. Needless to say, it’s guaranteed to have you slobbering after the sequel like a dog after a bone. A huge part of the reason why I enjoyed it so much is the quality of the writing. It’s much, much, much better than what’s usually found in indie books and I think it could actually outdo some of the novels in the big publishing houses. It pulled me in from the start and only when I reached the end did I realize that I’d devoured the book in one sitting."
Lindsay & Jane's Views and Reviews: "I became a fan this author after reading ‘Mark of the wolf’ a few months ago and I have not been disappointed in any of the books I’ve read by her since. T.L Shreffler has the skill to paint a very visual setting, creating a believable and exhilarating world to escape to. Her characters have depth and feel real with natural flowing dialogue and interesting personalities. Sora’s Quest is a steady paced fantasy moving forward with a good dose of action followed by a comfortable amount of down time. It has me itching to read the next installment."
Books to Infinity & Beyond: "Sora's Quest was such a fun read! During the whole time I was reading this, I felt like I was whisked away to a brand new world with endless possibilities of adventures and wonders. I really liked the world building, especially the mythology and all the different races. I also loved the way how magic was perceived in this book, how it was mysterious and powerful and even dangerous."
