“According to legend, when the world was young, the goddess Issaura appeared among men. Those who treated her with kindness received the gift of the gods—the ability to transform into an animal form. This was a great honor but one that separated this race from other humans. Before Issaura departed the mortal realm, she promised to return if her people were ever at the poin ...more

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow. This read – just wow. Honestly, it was so much more than I’d anticipated. I was so very close to giving this one a five star rating.

If the truth is to be known, I went into this one not expecting much. The synopsis was interesting, yet I wasn’t one hundred percent sure what I would be receiving. A fantasy novel – yes. Some kind of shifter creatures – yes. A new mythology to wrap my head around – yes. Prejudice against women that would be overcome – yes to the former, hope

Issaura's Claws by Katharine E Wibell is an impressive fiction work that focuses on breaking the stereotype of women as a weak gender. Lluava is a headstrong seventeen-year-old girl. She is not a human, though. She is a theriomorph -- a special race that looked like a human but could convert into an animal form. Although the law of Elysia does not divide the humans and theriomorphs, the animosity between these two races is evident on a daily basis.

Issaura’s Claws was written by Katharine E. Wibell and published by Phaesporia Press in 2016.

Wibell centers on racism in this story. She tells how the theriomorphs are oppressed by the humans and how, as a result, both groups don’t trust each other. She also tells how the two groups put aside there differences and work together to stop a new threat.

Lluava is the main character in this book. When the king announces a draft she volunteers to go not knowing that as a girl, she will not be trained t

**This book was reviewed via Lola’s Book Tours**

Issaura's Claws tells the story of Lluava, a Theriomorph tigress conscripted into the Elysian army, and sent Thowcelemine to be trained as all Theriomorph women are trained, as support roles to the warriors, such as being healers.

Lluava soon proves there is much more fire to her than most first believed. She doesn't want to sit behind the lines. She wants to fight as the men are being trained to fight. After much debate amongst the heads of the tr

From a very young age, stories and storytelling pursued me like a child’s imaginary friend. I created make-believe characters for every toy that my sister and I owned. Each had an individual personality, back-story, hopes, dreams, and reason for being. The villains were even more intriguing than the heroes and heroines. Why were they so evil? Had something horrible happened to them in their past? ...more
