I love this book, and it's one of my favourites.

But it also reminds me of something pretty embarrassing:

I first read it when I was about 13 (ie: puberty), and, as it happened, I started getting a patch of red hair in my bangs, much redder than the rest of my hair. So, of course, I jumped to the only logical conclusion: OH MAH GAWD I"M TURNING INTO A FOX!!!!!1

This is the first fantasy book I ever read in high school. It drew me in and kept me captivated with its interesting story and lovable characters. I love the concept of sharing a soul with an animal. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

I loved the story in this book. The cat that kept changing his name was one o my favorite characters. I enjoyed how it played out the ending seemed a bit rushed though. The writing seemed simple but I still loved the book for the story itself.
The best character in this book was the cat who often changes his name, sometimes called Furry Purry, sometimes Cat Who Bites Priests. I'd have to read it again to report some more funny names, but he was totally adorable.

The foundation of magic is strong and reliable. The culture is absolutely amazing. Even the bad guys' agenda is totally believable. The characters are interesting, especially the eldest brother and his romantic interest. No spoilers!

The only thing that was a let down was the cl...more
This was such a good book! Reichert doesn't usually write except in series, nor does she usually write with a partner, but IMHO this is her best book, and the Nightfall books are a hard act to beat!

I would have LIKED more story, but it would have probably detracted from the existing story, so I guess we'll have to accept that there will probably be no more of this story/world.
I wish I could give this book a higher rating. I really loved it to the end. IT was a fun read, I really liked the characters. They were all there own person. But the end was so rushed and not very believable to me.

I should admit I took one star away for killing off my favorite character. Otherwise the story was quite good, even if everything seemed to work out a little too perfectly at the end.

I loved this book - I read it first when I was about 14 and adored it so much that I went out, six years later, to find the exact edition I checked out of the library all those years ago.

This started out as an interesting story with some well-drawn characters; but it fell apart toward the end and had a very rushed-seeming conclusion, both of which annoyed me immensely.
Skye Person
It was amazing. It was well written and the Storyline was beautiful. I couldn't put this book down!
I read this book in middle school, and have never forgotten it. I loved the story, characters, and plot. I will admit, the ending was rushed.
I really like the one book Jennifer Wingert wrote, and I liked this earlier one she co-wrote. But I wish she would write another one.
Light reading. I liked most of the story, but it suddenly wrapped up in a nice, clean, everyone-is-happy ending.
The themes of miscommunication and defining the 'other' added to this fantasy/romance.
