While all the books can stand alone, there’s likely best appreciated in concert.
This finale unites protagonists of the two series and brings back a number of other fan-fave characters.
What’s more today’s paperback release of Feral Curse by Candlewick means that all but that last book in the series are available in paperback from Candlewick (plus, they’re all available in e-format and most are available on audio).
Then there are the three short stories, “Cat Calls,” “Haunted Love,” and “Cupid’s Beaux,” which releases as part of Things I’ll Never Say: Stories About Our Secret Selves, edited by Ann Angel (Candlewick, March 2015).
So to sum up, we’re talking nine novels (including two graphic novels, illustrated by Ming Doyle) and three short stories set in the Tantalize-Feral universe.
The early notes on the first book are dated 2000 and the last novel is out today.
The whole shebang totals out at 458,169 words (and I write tight).
Thanks to all who’ve joined and supported me along the way!
“Kayla is only baby steps into recovering from the death of her first boyfriend and Yoshi, who has legendary experience with ladies, is suddenly faced with the first one with whom he could have a real relationship, a real future, if they both survive.”
—Cynthia Leitich Smith, author of Feral Pride, on Fans Inspiring a New Series from Adventures in YA Publishing.
Anti-shifter sentiment is at an all-time high when Kayla’s transformation to werecat is captured on video and uploaded for the world to see.
Suddenly she becomes a symbol of the werebeast threat and—along with fellow cat Yoshi, Lion-Possum Clyde, and human Aimee—a hunted fugitive.
Meanwhile, a self-proclaimed weresnake has kidnapped the governor of Texas and hit the airwaves with a message of war.
In retaliation, werepeople are targeted by law enforcement, threatened with a shift-suppressing vaccine, terrorized by corporate conspiracy, and enslaved by a top-secret, intelligent Cryptid species.
Can Clyde rally his inner lion king to lead his friends—new and old—into battle against ruthless, media-savvy foes? A rousing blend of suspense, paranormal romance, humor, and high action.
The explosive finale to the Feral series by New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith.
“…witty, smart and moving—sure to satisfy…”
