Kae is a werecat, a little tabby domestic cat; out of boring, he cruises Tyress, a middle-age man who is more or less trying to pick up every man passing him in the pub and not having any success, on the contrary, he is regarded as a pity case. But Kae sees something in Tyress and it’s not with pity that he starts talking with him, only to find out Tyress is an Huntsman, i.e. a deadly enemy of any wereshifter. Tyress claims to be retired and he more or less, lets Kae go without any harm if not some spiteful words, but you know, curiosity kills the cat, and Kae is not satisfied until he doesn’t push Tyress to action.
The story follows with a cat and mouse hunt (or better a man and cat hunt), mixing sex and passion, almost non con sex with funny moment, and boys, was that a masterly proof of Katica Locke’s skills, it was something almost impossible to manage, but I have never felt like Kae or Tyress were hurting from each other behaviour even if I was at the same time trying to understand what was their final target.
Katica Locke recreated a perfect werecat in Kae, a cat when he was in shifted form, but a man with some “feline” behavioural traits when he was in human form.; Tyress on the other hand was one of the best middle-age characters, with that bittersweetness of men who come to realize their youth is gone and they will be never able to catch it again, with too many regrets and too little good memories.
Very good story, highly recommended.
