What a great little story! The author chose to write this book, like its prequel novella, from the amusing, snarky POV of a magical cat. Romeo holds a very high opinion of himself, yet he reveals a heroic heart and a touch of romance in his soul.
This story is a quick read, packed with adventure, appealing characters, snappy dialogue, and some high drama. Definitely appropriate for kids as well as adults. The story world and danger are clearly portrayed, and the heroic quest is quick and exciting

Overall, I would give The Witching Hour a 3.5. It’s a book that you can sit down and read through in a few hours. The voice of the story is genius and playful, but there are some lacking elements in the area of development of the world. However, Romeo is definitely one of my favorite animal narrators. It’s a sparkling and fun read with lots of laughs and a heart-warming lead character.

Snarky cats, evil hounds, and dashing rogues, oh my! This instalment in Romeo’s adventures has everything I love in a story: eerie atmosphere, men and women that stand as equals, snarky commentary, and a dash of magic and romance. Highly recommended to any and all cat admirers/servants.

Decided to read this as part of the blog tour for the book release because, you know, magical cats. (So disclaimer, I guess, that I received this copy for free with no review guarantees, blah blah blah.)

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Light vs dark, good vs evil, all the good stuff you'd want and sassy cats to go with it.

If you haven't read Part 1, there is a link to get it for free at Amazon at the beginning of the book--it's really a short story, not a full book.

A great read for kids and the YA audie
