Darkly comical

This one's not for the squeamish readers, but I like a dark read every now and then so I really enjoyed it. The story and characters pull you in, but maybe what I loved most was the author's commentary of how crazed society has become from too much junk food, junkier TV and the rabid (and undeserved) worship of celebrities, most of whom have zero talent and basically get famous (and rich!) by exploiting themselves and others. Highly recommend this novel if you appreciate a deep plot (you see what I did there, right?) and are sick of the whole "reality" TV culture.

It's definitely dark, but once you get past the premise, it's quite funny.   Unfortunately, some of the characters seem to just get tossed aside as a convenience.  Can't think of how to do anything more with this character? Just kill him off.  The climax feels rushed, and then the book ends -  there's not a whit of denouement..

    Owlmist

    "Um, you accept cats who have been crossbred with an owl? My dad was an owl and my mother was a cat. Twolegs forced them to mate, and came up with me. They stuck this odd thing on my paw..." she says, looking down at the metal ring attatched to her front paw. A red light flashed at each of owlmists motions.

    Ferntail

    Ferntail clawed at the badger's eyes, her claws filling with coarse black fur. The badger shook its head, swiping at Ferntail with a heavy paw. Ferntail leaped away, and Oakbark bit down on its ear to distract it. The badger roared and flung Oakbark away, where he landed with a sickening thud. Shadeleap crept up to him, and pressed cobwebs on his wounds. Ferntail nodded in gratitude and spat at the badger. The badger charged Ferntail, jaws snapping by her neck. Ferntail screeched as the badger scored its claws on her face, leaving three bleeding gashes running across her face. Blood filled Ferntail's gaze and she staggered, disoriented, as she braced herself for the next attack. But the badger had been attacked by Oakbark, who was swiping deftly at its face, snarling. The badger shook its massive head and backed away, retreating back into the forest.
