I am an all black she cat with white on my ears muzzle tip of my tail chest and paws. I have no clan but if I did I would be very loyal. My father was Brokenstar and my sisters Scareyes and Darkeyes. Please don't judge me by my kin's actions. All I want and all I need is someone to love me for me. And stop thinking about my kin. If I had kits they would be my pride and joy. I would never leave their side or abandon them like my father did to me. Please respond.

"Kestrel's Midnight Song" by Jacob R. Parker
I have a few things to say about this book. First of all, AAAUGH!!! I know the author! (Which is, by the way, just WAY TOO COOL.) I've been following Jacob's blog since he was still writing KMS (Kestrel's Midnight Song), and I'm very happy with the result of his work. Second, that has got to be the coolest dragon/bird/BIG THING I've ever seen. Thumbs up to the cover art. Third, I'm about ready to write the review now. Here we go.Was this review helpful?

In the tower of a castle, high above the sea, a prisoner waits to be freed. James Kestrel is his name, and a name that inspires terror throughout the land. Renowned for his knowledge of the Caelum Flute, an instrument with the capability of controlling any bird, he would be able to rule Gable, a land renowned for its exotic birds.
At an Inn near the Kepled Sea, a slave girl hides without any protection save secrecy. If she were to be discovered as a run away, anyone could claim her. With this horrible secret, she tries to live a normal life at the inn, catering to guest as if nothing were different. She has no knowledge of the fire, or the journey with the giant, which is so soon to come.
Farther still, deep in the mountains lives a shepherd boy, who likewise knows nothing of his impending fate. He spends his days tending to his sheep, which he loves like siblings. Soon, though, he'll have much more on his mind than just sheep. A trek is coming that will last many days, and will cause him to meet with many new friends- a giant, a slave, a former guard to the King, and many more.
All the right characters + all the necessary writing skill + flaming sheep = A pretty cool book. Some of the characters lacked developement, but there had to be a weakness somewhere, right? :-) Mr. Parker, I am satisfied in every way. (And ready for a sequel!)
