Overview

Makita whirled through a billowing mist traveling faster than she could breathe.
The cylindrical vacuum of air, that carried her, widened. She went sliding through it.
Thump. She hit the ground hard, knocking the wind out of her with a whoosh.
The earth tilted as she raised her head. In the distance, she smelled the nauseous scent of gas fumes and--she nodded her nose up and down--Bennie.
Makita glanced around as she staggered to her feet. She’d landed on the slope of a hill. Below her stretched a highway and on the other side, next to her dead body, lay Bennie.
She limped down the hill stopping every few feet to catch her breath and try to get her legs to work.
Glancing toward the road, she noticed a car–no a van–slowing down by Bennie. Her eyes narrowed as she tried to focus. Was it the same black van she and Tadji had seen from Catarau?
Makita broke into a trot, grimacing with each jolt to her joints.
The vehicle pulled off the side of the road and a man got out.
Even being a novice, she could see the dark aura that surrounded the human. She began to run, sliding on the cold damp grass.
“Run, Bennie!” she yowled at the top of her voice.
Engines whined. A semi blocked her view.
As soon as the noisy truck passed, she screamed again, “Run, Bennie.”
The dog rose to his paws, looked around and whimpered. He watched the man’s approach.
“Now, Bennie. Run, run, run,” Makita shouted.

    I was hooked as soon as I started reading this book. Cox wrote

    I was hooked as soon as I started reading this book. Cox wrote an interesting story about the love, determination and bonds between cats and dogs as well as between them and their human owners. It's a beautiful tale demonstrating the value of friendship, loyalty, love and the importance of ending a horrific type of animal cruelty, dog fighting.

    From the beginning, I fell in love with Makita. She is the protagonist in this book. I felt her pain and fear throughout the story and enjoyed learning more about her relationship with her dog friend, Bennie. She is a protector, loyal to her animal friends. Makita is strong, smart and has a weak heart for her brother/friend dog, Bennie.

    Cox's writing was descriptive from beginning to end. For example, she writes, "Terror and desperation hung in the air so thick Makita could taste it on her tongue." She nailed her imagery, especially when Makita and Bennie meet Jack, an old cocker spaniel, and travel through the forest together to help save the other animals. Cox painted a very vivid image of the forest and how these three animals felt going through the chilly, scary woods.

    I can't express how unique the entire story is. I never read anything like this before and to be honest, wasn't even sure I would enjoy reading about cats and their thoughts and emotions. I seriously can't wait to read the next installment and will be sharing this series with all of my friends and family. It's a great book for people of all ages, especially those who have cats or dogs as pets.
