Slave: The Cat Star Chronicles Review

Finally, after waiting for just a few days, I received my own copy of Cheryl Brook's very first supernatural-romantic novel, Slave: The Cat Star Chronicles.

I thank Danielle, Ms. Brook's lead publicist, for sending me a copy of Slave and I apologize that it took me a while before I could make my review. But here it goes.

I received my copy just before the day that I was scheduled to go to Manila and I have to say that it was great timing indeed because I now know that I have a great book to read whenever I'm bored or have nothing else to do.

Slave is nothing like the books that I have read before and this is very true indeed. Sure I am fond of reading supernatural stories but I have never encountered a work such as Slave that is very descriptive that I could actually see, feel, taste, smell, and hear what the protagonist of the novel, Jacinth, is experiencing!

The words used in this novel are so stimulating and so descriptive that it actually keeps you up all night and you are addicted to it and I find it hard to drop and leave the book because the urgency to know what happens next is so strong!

I also showed my friend the book and just by looking at the cover she knew immediately that the content is hot and spicy but as the saying goes, "Don't judge a book by it's cover!" She just read the first line and she was already hooked to it! No kidding! She has my book right now because she practically loved it and thanked me for lending it to her.

The novel is romantic in nature but I loved the way Ms. Brook's incorporated witty jokes into it. The plot is very easy to understand and follow and Ms. Brooks makes it a point to discuss how things in the story came to be.

I am looking forward to reading the next installment of the Cat Star Chronicles: Warrior which I heard is going to be released this October 2008.
