Missy the Werecat

Missy the Werecat by P.G. Allison

Missy the Werecat: Book I 

When puberty brings on her first Shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years until finally learning to Change back. She can Change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two year disappearance was because she’d been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats and no alpha. She’s a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do great things in today’s world, amongst humans. She only has her instincts to guide her and those drive her to train herself to extremes. She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work for meDecember 8, 2014
This review is from: Missy the Werecat (Kindle Edition)
**I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
I just couldn't enjoy this book. The whole first half of the book is an overabundance of backstory. The author is talking at you instead of telling a story. It felt wrong, with too much explanation, too much description and way too much information. It didn't flow well.

Missy was too mature for her age. I found it hard to believe that a young girl, living in the woods on her own for years, as a cat, would come out and be as cognizant, grown up and able to re-enter society like Missy did. The second half of the story seems too far fetched. Yes, I understand this is fiction, it just didn't click right with me. I found myself rolling my eyes and wishing I could put this book aside and not finish it. I struggled through it, but I wish I hadn't. It just didn't sit well with me.

Also, they say don't judge a book by it's cover, but that is what you do when you scroll through amazon looking for a book to buy. I would have scrolled right by this book had I been looking to buy something. The cover does nothing to tell me what type of story it is. It's bland and blends with the Amazon white background. I would have scrolled right past this book. I feel the author needs to have a content editor go through and help make the story flow better as well as maybe liven up the cover a bit. Then maybe this series would take off a bit more.
