Took me a bit to get into -- the beginning was a big shift from book 1 -- but the ending was a lot of fun. Can't wait for book 3!

Feral Curse is the sequel to Feral Nights, a spin-off series to the Tantalize quartet. This time, the story is told from the perspective of Yoshi, the Asian were-cat who was in Feral Nights, and Kayla, an African American were-cat. Kayla was adopted and wasn’t aware of her were-cat heritage until she hit puberty. Her parents are both human, her father is mayor of the small town of Pine Ridge. The day after she tells her boyfriend Ben that she’s a were-cat, he is mysteriously hit by lightning and ...more

This was the second book in the Feral Night series. It was AMAZING! When I finished the first book I was thinking, "What happens to Yoshi?!? Does he ever find his true love?!?" In this book I found out! I was really excited and this book is something that everyone with a mind for the weird and freaky (I'm all about weird and freaky!) should read! In this book there are cursed pieces of a marry-go-round and the one who can reverse the curse is dead! It is an amazing mystery and love story to read ...more

Kayla loves Ben enough to tell him her deepest secret...she is a werecat. The love of her life is repulsed but thinks he can 'help' her. He tries his hand at a spell that results in his death and the cursing of the town carousel. Strange were-creatures start showing up in town and they all seem to be after Kayla. Yoshi and Aimee befriend her and they work as a team to try to make things right. The story was a little bit fun and a little bit goofy. And sometimes that is just what I'm looking for.

At first, I thought this was a nice change of pace from normal paranormal books. Instead of wereWOLVES, we had wereCATS! I thought this book started out with great potential and it had a great beginning in my opinion. However, it got more boring and stayed in a slow pace (until the last 6 pages where the book ended in a metaphorical blur) and I just wanted to be done with reading it by the last quarter of the book. This book was too fast-paced in the beginning in comparison to the ending. The be ...more

Kayla knows nothing about being a werecat. She is the adopted daughter of two human parents and although they are very accepting of her differences, the town and world are not. After she comes out about her were-ness to her boyfriend, a tragedy occurs and she becomes even more determined to know about this hidden heritage. Answers appear unexpectantly when a sexy male werecat comes into town and a few other were-animals help out with a possessed antique carousel causing magical mischief.

*I received this for free.

I really liked this book. The story flowed really well and didn't get boring at all. I even laughed at some parts. The reason why I rated it 4 stars and not 5 stars is because this book wouldn't be a book that I could read many times without getting bored.

Loving this evolving world. Yoshi & Kayla seem like a good match. I'm guessing a war is coming & I'm dying to know what's going to happen.

I think the first book was better because I can relate to the city life more than the country life.
