    On the book

    it was okay, but it was seventeen pages long. The plot of it was also okay, and would have been great if it had been longer.

    A great short! Kit Colbana belongs to an ancient line of warriors, but
    she’s not a pure-blood. When a mother calls Kit to find her missing
    daughter she agrees to go searching the lair of the wererats for her.
    Unfortunately, her mission goes sideways. Fortunately, one of the many
    messages she left for the supernatural community leaders was received
    and acted upon. Otherwise, Kit might have been a tasty meal for the
    wererats. I loved this short story. The writing was smooth and the plot
    flowed easily. The two main characters have caught my interest and this
    story whetted my appetite for more. This is apparently a prequel for
    'Blade Song' by J.C. Daniels which is a pen name for Shiloh Walker. I’ll
    be picking up 'Blade Song' (published 1 August 2012) as soon as
    possible. *I read this short story in July when it was offered free to
    all and sundry on Shiloh Walker’s blog.
