Volcrian's Hunt (The Cat's Eye Chronicles #3) by T. L. Shreffler Blog Tour - Book Review by Mallory Farnham

on Sep 27, 2013

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 the Dark God and unleashing a wave of unimaginable destruction. They only need to collect the three sacred weapons, and Sora has already found two....

Review: So if you've been living under a rock and haven't picked up the Cat's Eye Chronicles yet...well, what are you waiting for?!

Prepare to enter this fantastical world of magic, pirates, assassins and mischievous races. Volcrian's Hunt picks up where Viper's Creed left off and jumps right into the adventure, action and fascinating characters that readers have come to love.

Volcrian, the mage, out for revenge against Crash is still hot on the trail of our heroes. I like that throughtout this series we have been able to see Volcrian's journey. Specifically in this book I think you see some moments where he has doubts about his mission and his dark motives.

Sora and Crash become a lot closer as well. I love these two! I'm so glad we got to discover more of Crash's past and who he is. I felt like Sora has been changing as well. She is definitely more confident and it's been wonderful to see this character grow.

T. L. writes beautifully and her descriptions take you deep into the story. I personally loved the Lost Isles, they were amazing and so interesting.

There is a lot more I could say but I don't want to give away any spoilers. You will just have to read the awesomeness for yourself.

Volcrian's Hunt is definitely my favorite installment in the series so far!
