Deathcat Sally by P.S. Brooks

Before you open this book, get ready to open your mind to new worlds and unusual events.  This is not a typical book; it's a book about horror and fantasy and even a bit of magic.  I can guarantee you one thing:  You won't be bored...

The author and Publishing Push invited me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy on Amazon now.

Sally is seventeen.  She's working as a classroom assistant and heads home from work, fretting about being late.  When she hits something in the road, she stops to see what it was.  It's a cat and her heart hurts because she's injured it or maybe killed it.  As she runs back across the road to call for help, she gets hit by a truck.  When she awakens after being in a coma for a while, she finds that the cat is attached to her shoulder.  She has half a cat on her shoulder.  No one else sees it except her.  That's a good thing but the cat doesn't like water and she can't take a bath!  She also ends up being clawed while they are adjusting to each other.  This is not an easy partnership.

She's amazed she can talk to the cat and he understands her.  Not only that, she understands him, too.  She can even talk to other animals.  They attempt to help her with her unusual condition.  She'll need them.  When she goes to sleep, they go to another place.  It's not a good place.

This is a war between good and evil and it will take all of Sally's talents to stay alive.  There are bad animals (made that way by human mistreatment), extinct animals live, and Sally has to figure out how to save the animals in this no man's land of the dead.

This tale was very different and a bit odd, but it was entertaining.  It also makes you think about how many animals are mistreated in the name of science as well as abused by owners.  The author is going to donate any royalty profits to animal and environmental charities.  This book in unique and unusual.  Are you ready to scare yourself?
