This is the first book by Cynthia Leitich Smith I have read and it definitely won’t be the last. After a little research, I found out this is a spinoff title from Smith’s Tantalize series, which I now MUST read. Feral Nights is fresh, comical, romantic, and action packed. Books with all of these characteristics are few and far between, so make sure to add this book to your reading list.
“Sorry about your loss,” I counter. “But you’ve got the wrong Cat.”
What do a werecat, werepossum, and a human have in common? Epic adventures, that’s what. Yoshi, Clyde, and Aimee are on a mission to find Yoshi’s missing sister Ruby and to find out who killed Clyde’s brother. What they find instead is themselves kidnapped and deep in the heart of a tropical island rampant with mythological creatures. Can they unite the other island creatures to escape the island before it’s to late?
Even if this isn’t your favorite genre, or you are just looking for some good character banter and sarcasm-filled action, look no further and pick up this title.

This is a cute read. It isn't the norm for me, but I did enjoy reading it. For some reason, I had trouble connecting to any one character which was a little annoying. But still, all in all, it was a fun read.....and one you could read in one day.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I've been a fan of the Tantalize quartet and i was really looking forward to Feral Nights. Only Cynthia Leitich Smith could create a funny yet serious story that has comedy, love and action.
Feral Nights takes place in the same universe as the Tantalize quartet. The story opens to Yoshi (cool name) looking for his older sister Ruby who was in Tantalize. Yoshi and Ruby are both werecats. And in this world, werepeople are often discriminated for not being human. When arriving in Austin, Yoshi learns 3 facts about Ruby. 1) She is nowhere to be found. 2) She killed an evil chef who was a vampire. 3) She is also a suspect in the murder of Travis, a werearmadillo (yes there are werearmadillos). Yoish is confused as to why Ruby would kill two people. His quest to find ruby turns interesting when he meets Clyde and Aimee. Clyde was Travis's best friend and is a wereopussum. Clyde (introduced in Tantalize) vow he would exact Travis's death. Along to help him is his human friend and possible crush Aimee (introduced in Blessed). The three are kidnapped by a mysterious species and their followers and are shipped off to an island where werepeople are being hunted for sport by the mysterious species and those of high power. The trio decides in order to survive, they must work together and stop the mysterious species and get off the island.
Fereal Nights lived up to my expectations with the plot, funny conversations bewteen Yoshi, Clyde and Aimee (the story is told from each character in 1st person) and the will to survive while overcoming impossible obstecles. Just like with the Tantalize quartet, Feral Nights will keep my mind busy with wondering when the next book will come out. Good luck Cynthia Leitich Smith! Never stop writing!
