About The Book- An Ancient Prophecy. A Powerful Relic. An Insatiable Evil. When all three converge, the fate of every living thing will be in peril. All her life Catherine had hoped to see a fairrier cat. No book, no scroll provided to her by her tutors had ever mentioned this legend, much to her frustration, and now-at the worse possible time-she was getting her wish. Only, in her wish the cat wasn’t about to kill her. A 732-year-old fairrier cat the size of a horse has killed his fair share of hunters. Driven to the brink of extinction for the supernatural powers of his coat, is he indeed the last of his kind? Sheltered, 16-year-old Catherine is about to find out. Unwitting heir to the Ancient Onyxes, she flees an arranged marriage only to stumble upon the cat’s secrets, the force of the ancient relic she wears, and the dangerous mission they must undertake. Hidden under a desert that was once a fertile land, millions of predators are waiting to feast again. Catherine must discover the secret of the Ancient Onyxes and stop the creatures known as trodliks before they consume everything in their path. A whispered prophecy becomes her only guide and a rejected suitor just might be the one warrior she desperately needs.

My Review- Very rarely am I ever at a loss for words when it comes to a book. I was a little trepidatious when I agreed to join this tour. I don’t usually go near historical fantasy. The language tends to be cumbersome and I lose interest because it can be a bit confusing. I have to say though that I am so glad I decided to read this book! I was absolutely blown away by this book. The story line was something new and original that I haven’t come across personally before. The depth of the characters and the descriptions of the settings were amazing.The action had my heart pounding and the underlying love story in the book had me smiling and swooning. The ending was perfect with just enough of a taste of intrigue to make sure you look for the next book. Amazing book all around and I highly recommend!!

C. Bailey Sims was born in CA. and as a teenager moved to the Colorado Rockies where she attended a very small high school, learned how to ski race, ride a horse, mountain climb, and target shoot at tin cans. She now lives with her family in the much tamer but equally beautiful hills of Connecticut in a very creative household of artists and musicians. This book is a book that I had to write because Spelopokos wouldn’t leave me alone.
