I was lured in by the promise of a talking cat but stayed for the story. I follow the author on Twitter and when she talked about the book it sounded interesting.

Cats with psychic powers! (I was quite amused by how Pumpkin was, like most cats, a bit of a jerk and not a team player, but still loved his snuggles.) The Trash Planet setting, a garbage picker heroine (who also owns her own factory) and a dancer hero made this story feel fresh.

I really had fun reading this story! It isn't a short story, but I honestly couldn't put it down until I found out what happened to Su, Wil and Pumpkin. Love the adventure, romance and humor in this unique and wonderful sci-fi romance.

I am leaving a voluntary review for an advanced copy of the book.
