The Great Purrby Catherine Holm

From Amazon: In a northern Minnesota mining town, cats have always maintained the Great Purr, a force that holds the Real World, the UnderEarth, and the Spirit World together. But when the Great Purr becomes corrupted and threatens to destroy the world, the magical cats of Ironton must work together to prevent disaster. Can Karma use her exquisite sensitivity without it destroying her? Will Target harness his gift of focus at the right time? And will sensual Kali be able to resist the temptation of the Evil that threatens to unravel The Great Purr?

The Great Purr is the winner of a 2014 Muse Medallion award from the Cat Writers’ Association.

My Review: Cat Fantasy at its best.

It’s not often a book comes along that transports the reader to a brand new world. The Great Purr, by Catherine Holm, is one of those books. This feline fantasy is no cute kitten story, nor is it for the faint of heart. The cats of Irontown have a mission, and if they fail, all will be lost for both feline and mankind.

As a cat person and member of the Cat Writers’ Association, Holm’s anthropomorphic cats are totally believable and cat-like. Each has a distinct personality as befits their role in saving the world.

If you enjoyed the Barque Cats series by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, or my Cat Seasons Tetralogy, Books 1 & 2, you will love The Great Purr.
