About The Book

Life has been going well for Travis Grayweaver recently. The Grand Council of High Magick hasn’t summoned him for anything. For a witch without a Guild, he’s still getting plenty of work. And best of all, he’s spent the last six months falling more and more in love with his best friend Niko, a rambunctious and playful cat familiar, who happens to love him back.

Tonight, they’ll be celebrating the Yule with lots of candlelight and a feast for two and a festival in town as they honor the start of winter and wait for the sun’s return. Only Niko’s been acting a bit off lately, obviously keeping something from Travis.

Travis is trying to be patient with him, but this thing from Niko’s past might be more than he can handle. Old demons and long-kept secrets will be revealed, but can the love they have for one another endure these revelations during the longest night of the year?

The Review

I enjoyed the overall story line, and with just a little work I’d have bumped it up to 4-stars. Although this is a sequel to a book I hadn’t read, I was able to catch up to the plot fairly quickly.

From the beginning, I wasn’t sure what the werecat was. Did he transform into a human, some sort of semi-cat, or was it a regular cat the MC had fallen in love with?

As a gay male reader, I want, if not need, the MM stories I read to reflect gay men and their relationships. This book could just as easily be a book about a straight couple.

Also, the constant reference to the werecat as ‘kitten’ became a bit cringe worthy and at times felt condescending. Coming from a southern born and raised man, that says something, as I tend to love my endearments.

With just a little more development (which probably couldn’t be achieved in 45 pages) this could’ve been a 4-star review. Three stars.
