Book Review: Reserved for the Cat
I think at this point you people can probably tell what type of books I like. Sci-fi fantasy chick lit? Sign me up! Reserved for the Cat is another in the Elemental Masters series by Mercedes Lackey, and she totally brings it in this one. If you like this author or Anne McCaffrey, Kate Elliot and their ilk, you will love this one.
The plot follows a young girl who is basically destitute, and is working hard as a ballerina to try and make ends meet, as well as find a wealthy benefactor. Her mother passes away, and poor Ninette struggles even more. Once she ticks off the prima ballerina, however, she is toast. Comtemplating becoming a “lady of the evening” to put food on the table, she discovers there is magic in the world, and sets off on her adventure.
Now I know I am terrible at book and movie reviews. I desperately hate spoilers, and I try to avoid them at all costs. I try to give you guys a small sample of what occurs, and let you know whether or not I liked it so that you (hopefully) have an idea of whether or not you will. If that’s not helpful, sorry. Really by now you should all just trust my opinion on everything and just follow my advice. What the hell else are minions good for??
To sum up: this gets a Clever Chick rating of “Earns a place on my shelf, and will only be loaned out grudgingly, and with constant badgering until it is returned”. This puts me at a total of twelve books completed so far this year. Not too bad, but I’ve gotten bogged down recently in a couple different books, so we’ll see how it goes.
