Overview

The Cat In The Cradle by Andreas Bell

To set out into the world, to be surrounded by the unknown and become a stranger. Only then would he be free to reinvent himself. Or fall in love.

Dylan wanted one last adventure before the burden of adulthood was thrust upon him. And to confront the man he hadn't spoken to since their intimate night together. Stealing a boat with his faithful companion Kio, their journey is cut short when they witness a brutal murder. A killer is loose in the Five Lands and attacking the most powerful families. Dylan-a potential target-seeks sanctuary from an unpredictable bodyguard named Tyjinn. Together they decide to turn the tables by hunting the killer down. Along the way, everything Dylan thought he knew about himself will be challenged, but if he survives, he stands to win the love he never dreamed possible.

The Cat in the Cradle is the first book in the Loka Legends series and features twenty-five original illustrations created by Andreas Bell, the author's husband.

About the Author

After moving to Germany and getting married, Jay found himself desperate to communicate the feelings of alienation, adventure, and love that surrounded this decision, and has been putting pen to paper ever since.

Just Finished the Cat in the Cradle. Having read Something Like Summer only a few days ago, I decided to read this book and now this author has rocketed to my number 1 slot for fiction writers. The breadth of Bells capabilities as a writer is astonishing, The Cat in the Cradle proves beyond a doubt that he is as accomplished a Fantasy novelist as he is a Romance writer. The world you are thrown into from the first few pages was at times bizarre and at others preposterous, but in an ingenious way at no point did you ever feel that in the world Bell has created, any of it was out of place. As Usual, Bell has created characters that leap out from the page, with likeable qualities. There is always an underlying suspense that drives you forward, wanting to know more. The relationships are sometimes complex, but it adds depth to the characters. There were a couple of times, especially near 3/4 of the way through the story that I felt parts of the story where not really adding anything to the overall picture and it did start to drag, and I openly admit to flicking through a few pages, skimming until I got to something that seemed more relevant. I think the whole Black Oligarch plot device could have been dropped without any real effect on the overall story. Thankfully though, this didn't last long and we were back up-to speed at a blistering pace, for the final showdown. Another thoroughly enjoyable read.

A good read. I always have trouble finding a scifi d&d book with a gay lead character but that is not about being gay. Well written, good scenes, characters and plot line. Some things came together a bit too easy and predictable leaving me feeling like it was a child's book, there was one rape scene to know it wasn't. No slow points so it was hard to put down and kept moving.

The whole thing was unrealistic, even for a fantasy novel. The main character was extremely unlikeable, and his inner thoughts made no sense; they were all over the place. The whole thing was wriiten choppily, and it seemed like the author completely made everything up as he went along. I know he was trying to be creative, but some of the things described made me roll my eyes and say "oh please". Fantasy is a hard genre, and Mr Bell unfortunately can't pull it off.
