About the Author

Cynthia Leitich Smith is the acclaimed and best-selling author of the first book in this series, Feral Nights, as well as the Tantalize quartet: Tantalize, Eternal, Blessed, and Diabolical, and the graphic novels Tantalize: Kieren's Story and Eternal: Zachary's Story, both illustrated by Ming Doyle. About Feral Curse, she says, "In small towns, everybody knows one another. That pushes secrets deeper and occasionally makes them more dangerous." Cynthia lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, author Greg Leitich Smith.

Reviews

Campy humor is paired with themes of social justice in this fast-paced, clever second volume in the Feral series. ... [T]he dynamics among characters are fascinating and are well-served by the first-person narration alternating between Yoshi and Kayla. A neat, smart middle novel that clearly sets the stage for an epic showdown between those who champion the rights of shifters and those blind to their humanity. --Kirkus Reviews This well-written, action-packed story perfectly blends serious topics such as self-worth, acceptance, and tolerance with witty dialogue and humorous banter in a modern yet supernatural world. The alternating narrative between male werecat Yoshi and Kayla allows for great depth of character while keeping the plot fresh, edgy, and thoroughly entertaining. Readers will eagerly look forward to the next entry in the trilogy and the ultimate confrontation between shifters and humans. A satisfying read for fans of paranormal and the occult. --School Library Journal This second entry in the Feral series (a spin-off of Smith's Tantalize quartet) features as kooky a cast of supernatural characters as ever (including a juvenile yeti in addition to the various werepeople and the occasional human), but they're all relatable in various ways and easy to root for. Debut character Kayla--level-headed, religious, but also quietly proud of her shifter nature--holds her own, nicely complementing Yoshi's swagger, Wild Card shifter Clyde's newfound confidence, and human Aimee's resourcefulness. Witty banter peppered with pop-culture references keeps the tone light even as the stakes ramp up. --The Horn Book An enjoyable glimpse into the world of were-animals and the intolerance that encompasses their existence. It is a fun ride. --VOYA Smith's adept hand with her action is accented with her trademark wit. --Austin-American Statesman
