Growing up poor Ninette Dupond¿s mother made sure her offspring would be accepted by the Paris Opera Ballet in Montmartre. She now hopes to find a wealthy a wealthy patron. Ninette loves to dance and is given the starring role in La Sylphide when the lead hurt her ankle. She attracts the interest of the star¿s paramour, but that leads to her being fired with no money to pay for food or her rent. A cat telepathically tells her that he was sent by her father, an Elemental Master to help her. --- The stray persuades Ninette to go to Blackpool, England pretending to be the famous Russian ballerina Nina Tchereslavsky, who they will say vanished during a ship wreck. The dancehall her feline guide escorts her to is run by an Elemental Master of Air while his closest friend, a magician is an Elemental Master of Fire. They accept her and protect her while Ninette tries hard to fit in. Nobody is aware that the real Nina knows about the impersonator and is furious plotting revenge for stealing her name and reputation. Nina is an Earth Elemental who got freed of her Master and likes living on the mortal plane she intends to keep doing so by absorbing humans in order to take over their form and intellect. Assimilating Ninette is the perfect disguise as the pretender has already taken up her role. --- The Elemental novels are beautiful romantic adult fairy tales. RESERVED FOR THE CAT contains a wicked villainess who makes the Snow White Queen seem benevolent, a courageous cat to rival Puss n Boots, and a fine brave heroine in peril (take your pick). Ninette is a strong willed intrepid individual who believes she must actively help in her defense. Master magician Mercedes lackey writes a charming fantasy. --- Harriet Klausner

I really enjoyed this book because it gave me a chance to see a heroine who instead of learning to use an active ability has to learn to deal with daily life and magic but without a major magic ability. Ninette must develop the talents she does have and find the courage to help the ones she loves. I also really love the idea of a talking cat.

Mercedes Lackey has a great writing style. I enjoy her books and eagerly await any new ones. This is a realy good read for enjoyment. Her Elemental Masters Series has been at times touching, suspenseful, and always enjoyable reading.

It's just boring me to death, don't care about the main character who used deception to get ahead, even if it was someone else doing it. Don't care for the "unfindable" villain...it's just hard to plow through. I've enjoyed all the ones (7) I've read, but this one, is just written under the gun of get something out there. Theater background and dance is...dull.

I like the idea of the elemental masters and Mercedes Lackey writing the tales. She has had many ideas and I have been reading her books for years. Her books are an invitation to think about the world as we perceive it and as it can be perceived by those who think a bit differently. I enjoy reading her books. You will too!
