Book Review of -- The Familiar by Jill Nojack

Overall star rating --- 3 stars 

About the book:
Sometimes a cat has to man up.

Tom has been mostly cat for a long time, but when the witch who enslaved him dies, he has one last chance to become a man again and maybe to find love, too. He just needs to tell Cassie, a sensible girl who knows nothing about the witchy business all around her, that he's trapped in the body of the kitten she cuddles at night. But cats aren't known for their conversational skills, and a powerful warlock is determined to take Cassie for himself. To make things worse, Tom is rapidly running out of lives.

The review --
This was a quite good book, and I enjoyed the adventures of poor Tom. The character of Cassie is quite likeable too. It's a good, fun read. If you like witches, with a bit of humor thrown in, then this is your book. But, the epilogue was a mistake. It was a blatant plug for the next book, and it sort of ruins what is an otherwise quite good book. That should have been left for the next book, or listed as a preview of the next book.

It's always been my feeling that the epilogue should tie up the loose ends of a book, not be a preview for the next book. Otherwise, the book was rather good and quite enjoyable.
