Feature Friday

#FridayFeature Wildcat by Rebecca Hutto

Woot, it’s Feature Friday time! Today’s book is one written by a friend and coworker & it’s pretty newly released (this summer). The synopsis sounds great so I’m exited to share it with you guys and get started reading it! I’m hoping to finish it up by the end of September then move on to some other mysteries as well as more Moby Dick.


‘Am I going to die today?’ Ember thought. Her breathing became shallow and irregular. Wind cut through her sable brown fur, rustling leafless trees and making her shiver. She rubbed her white forepaw against the maple branch supporting her. ‘And why do I do this? This job?’

History is important, loyalty is everything, and everyone has at least one secret they will guard with their life; these are the only things Ember is certain of. As sure as the sky is pain blue. Everything else is a toss up—including whether or not she should still be breathing.

Being the chief advisor means Cloud is used to making tough decisions. Those decisions don’t always grant him the respect of his colonymates, but when it comes to family, the approval of the council can wait. Some rules only work when broken—and some threaten to rip his family apart by the roots.

Nearly a century ago, the appala cats of ARC united to form the Colony. After a power struggle, the Colony was divided in half, with the resulting settlements positioned on two facing mountain slopes: the East and the West.
Now, in 2110, life in the Western Colony is not easy. With every inter-colony meeting, tensions rise. A second war, one far bloodier than any fights before it, seems more inevitable by the day. However, when Westerners start to turn against each other, the father-daughter duo is forced to question everything they thought they knew. Are they really above the rogue gangs and mercenaries stalking the Lowlands, or are they no better than the wildcats?

“We’re fine. Thanks for check on us though. Just finishing up, right Ember?” Ember looked at her paws. ‘I certainly hope we’re done. I’m not sucking on any more roots.’ “Yes, ma’am,” she whispered.

Have you ever enjoyed the same book in two or more formats (print, ebook, or audiobook)?

Yes & routinely. For most of the books i read, i have the audiobook in my car for driving and the physical book in my bag for “waiting”. I noticed though that a lot of my waiting time has switched to phone games or emails though. But since my phone is frowned upon at work, i’m glad to have the physical book handy.

This post is part of the “Friday Feature” series, which consists of “First Line Friday”, hosted by Hoarding Books, “Books Beginnings”, hosted by Rose City Reader, and “The Friday 56”, hosted by Freda’s Voice.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
