Overview

A sweeping, original digital story by the acclaimed Rae Carson, set in the world of her epic The Girl of Fire and Thorns—a debut novel Tamora Pierce described as "engrossing."

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness. And it was not Alodia.

Alodia is the crown princess of the realm. The sister who knows how to rule, the one who is constantly reminded that she has not been marked for a grand destiny. But Alodia has plans, and she will be the greatest queen her people have ever known. So she travels—with her hopeless, naive, chosen sister—to a distant part of their land, to begin to secure her supporters. This region needs its princesses, for it is plagued with a curse; the crops don't grow, spring doesn't arrive, and a fierce jaguar stalks in the shadows, leaving behind only empty homes splashed with blood. If Alodia can save them, no one will be able to deny her strength and her sovereignty.

But what she discovers could change the fate of her kingdom, if not the entire world. And it will most certainly change her opinion of her younger sister.

The Shadow Cats is a prequel to the riveting Fire and Thorns trilogy: Book One, The Girl of Fire and Thorns; Book Two, The Crown of Embers; and Book Three, The Bitter Kingdom.

I am somewhat biased since it was written by the daughter of my friend. I originally thought it was a sequal to Girl of Fire and Thorns but found it was a prequel. Good job Rae!!!!

I thought it was intetesting to see things from Juana-Alodia's point of view. A nice adventure & a great way to wet the appetite for the next book!!!
