i don't often read romance book, but i picked it up because of the title. to my surprise it was much more than a romance, it was an uplifting novel about redemption hope and just pure fun. something that i have not seen in a book in a very long time. the author took the time to take you back to a time when life was different and one that if you lived through it you could relate to it. from beginning to end you get to know the characters and fall in love with them. i highly recommend this book
A small sleek black shecat with dark purple eyes padded in. I am not the goa, but rather a lone assassin, but better than any of those idiots. They do not know how to plan and scout out a clan or specific cat.... nor how to attack properly. I am the bringer of death and destruction, the planner and strategist, the dark warrior. I am the Shadow.
