This is the first book in a new series and I already can’t wait for the follow-ups! For Tawny, the sudden disappearance of her father and the ransacking of their family home is only the tip of the iceberg; soon, she finds herself running for her life from the threat she could never believe existed, accompanied only by two “policemen,” one of whom she finds herself more and more attracted to.

The secret of her ancestry, the ancient feud between the two clans, the old family secrets that surface w

Dangerously Close to Extinction is the first book in the Knollville Legends series by C.A. King. I have read all of Ms. Kings books now and have loved exploring all her work. She is definitely one of my ‘no questions asked, just one-click it, authors’. Her stories never disappoint, so I didn’t even read the blurb for this story- I just snatched up a copy as fast as I could. So, I really had no idea of what to expect going into the story. I didn’t even know it was the first book in a new s

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King was a fun and exciting fantasy novel. I loved Tawny and Felix and the variety of shifters in this novel. The author did an amazing job and was very creative with them. I also really enjoyed the plot and felt that the storyline was easy to follow. The reader is immediately pulled in at the start of the novel with the mention of Tawny's dad disapp

Dangerously Close To Extinction (Knollville Legends Book 1) by C.A. King was a pretty okay read that kept me reading.

The first book in a new fun series, I went in with an open mind and excitement. As an avid reader of this authors works I knew I was in for something original, twisted and action packed. I will say that this book hit most points, but it did, for me, lacked a little when it came to the romance. But I think that more so had to do with the fact this book is a pretty short read. Comi

CA King gives her readers a bit of insight into the history of why dogs and cats are mortal enemies. It goes back to a time when dragons flew and werewolves and feline shifters lived in harmony, until one group made a deal with a demon. Fast forward to the present. Tawny's father is a researcher, gone without a trace and she has no idea where, more than one group is trying to use her to find him. Living a sheltered life with her father after her mother left, Tawny is ill-prepared to face adversi ...more

I do not know about you, but when I see my favorite author releases a new book I am all about getting it first and fast. The problem is that I usually finish it right away and need to wait for the next book to read. C.A. King is that author. I love her stories. She really puts in her heart and soul into her work. You can always bet there is action, adventure, likeable characters, characters you do not like, far off lands, and many more exciting things. Dangerously Close To Extinction is no diffe ...more

This is a story of werecat shifters. Tawny is a werecat but has no clue. Her father disappeared and now there are a bunch of people looking for him. Werewolves and werecats are the two main shifters here. I like the idea of this story but it seems unsettled. There is just something about this that doesn’t seem to flow. The conversations or the actions of the characters. I felt the “mate” situation need more time to grow. There were harsh words/actions between the two MC’s. Then the next page all ...more

Dangerously Close to Extinction is the first novel in the Knollville Legends series by C. A. King. This is my second novel by this author.

Finding herself caught between not knowing about her past and being abducted by someone unknown to her, Tawny begins a journey to discover more about herself before it’s too late.

This was an interesting take on the shifter genre and one I hope there is more of. Tawny was a different protagonist then what I normally see and I felt her name fit her character bec

New series and new world to explore.

I've read previous books by this author and had no hesitation deciding to be an early reader starting this new series. As expected, I wasn't disappointed. This is a YA paranormal/shifter story steeped richly in the conflict of two feuding rival gangs and it has everything; suspense, drama, search for missing person, action, secret to reveal, and a young heroine facing tense and dangerous situations. The plot moves along at a good pace and kept me turning the p

She also has no idea why people are after her dad but when all these secrets from her past start coming to light it begins to make sense. Throw in one of the guys after ...more

Dangerously Close to Extinction by C.A. King is the first book in the Knollville Legends series. This is clearly going to be yet another brilliant series by an author that never fails to please.
I don’t bother to even read the blurb of the book anymore when it comes to this author. Her work is always so entertaining and thrilling. This book is no exception. You are instantly swept away by her writing and her characters.
I just loved Tawny. She was vulnerable and yet so strong. You can’t help but w

C.A. King is a one click author for me and I always enjoy her stories.

This is the first book in a new series about a (fictional?) town called Knollville. Knollville isn't on a map, can't be found by GPS and the road is hidden in plain sight.

This story has a different flair than then the stories previously written. It set up as more "horror" with a softer edge. It was fantastic and I was 100% invested from the STUNNING cover to the very last page.

One of my favorite lines: "Beware of the eyes of t

Another good book by this author. I always like reading shifter books with a twist. Something that is a little different than the norm. And this one did not disappoint. There was enough drama and twists in the story to make it interesting and not at all predictable. It also included a bit of romance, which I like. Dangerously Close to Extinction is definitely worth a read and I look forward to reading more from C.A. King.

This book is a great adventure story with wolves, leopards and many more.

Tawny is a young woman who's father disappears. A strange set of sliver eyes seem to be following her but she doesnt know what or who it is. As far as she's concerned she is just an ordinary girl but when she is kidnapped things become even stranger.

Its a great story full of twists and turns and adventure. I couldn't put it down

I loved this book! I never hesitate to pick up one of this author’s books as I know there is an adventure waiting for me. This story is creative, full of mystery and twists and turns that kept me turning pages. The characters were a little different but they are interesting and made the story flow. Tawny has had a sheltered life and is now tasked with finding her father or face the consequences. Will things explode when fates are revealed and secrets exposed? A must read.

King continues to impress with the books that I read. This book was no exception. It was full of rich detail, great characters, fantasy, drama, truly a little bit for everyone.

Dangerously Close to Extinction by C.A King was a great read! I really struggled to put this book down. I would give this book a five out of five stars. I loved the air of mystery and all of the questions that you get right at the beginning. Tawny was a fun character to read, I loved her quirks and had a lot of the same questions she did.
