Cat's Eyes quick review
THIS IS A QUICK REVIEW BECAUSE I CAN"T SAY TOO MUCH WITHOUT SPOILING ANYTHING.
Cat’s eyes by Karen Lee Field
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews
This is going to be a very quick review.
Twelve year old Kate Dawson is unhappy at home. Her widowed mother has remarried and Kate has a stepfather and a six year old half-sister, Emma, who is nothing but a pest. She knows the resentment she feels towards Emma and her stepfather is making her mum unhappy, but Kate is confused by the deep feelings of guilt and jealousy that plague her.
One morning, Emma disappears down a mystical looking well. Irritated but worried, Kate follows and the two girls are thrust into the tunnels of Miu, an unknown place built within the lava tunnels of an extinct volcano. They meet a young Miuan princess and her guard, who are on the run, and the girls are instantly swept into a danger that will test their skills, their friendship and their love. (Synopsis by good reads)
This is a very easy read and more for middle grade I would say then anyone else. It was still an enjoyable story and very light hearted. I did enjoy the adventures that Kate had in this book.
Like other reviewers, I wish that we got to learn more about the Miuan people as a whole, but it didn’t take away too much from the story. This is a good book for a rainy day. I would recommend it for younger kids that want something light but that also has a fun adventure in it.
Over all rating:
*** 3 out of 5 stars
I like the cover art really lets you know what the story is about.
I won a copy from good reads first reads. Thank you.
