Clare Bell just friended me on Amazon.
*has dragged her battered 20+ year old copy of Ratha’s Creature off the bookshelf and is just sort of staring at it in awe*
This was one of my favorite books back in, err, junior high? It’s held together well only because I -destroyed- the library copy (I think I checked it out like 97 times). I drew fanart, I wrote fanfic, I loved it almost as much as ElfQuest! (Nothing beats ElfQuest, sorry. ^_~ *grin*)
And she has no clue what a pathetic fangirl I was/am of the first two books in the series. She’d just emailed me because I have reviews of a bunch of cat-focused books and she thought I might like the series. (She wrote more! While I wasn’t looking!! MORE!!!! *FLAIL*) … Well, okay, she didn’t know until she sent me the email and I flailed happily at her. Because, yeah, shameless fangirl here. ^_~ *grin*
Um, so, yes… just in case you haven’t seen these books before, I can highly recommend the first two and will be soon adding all of the rest to my collection in the near future. If you liked Watership Down or Tailchaser’s Song or, or– well, any darned animals-as-protagonist books (The Wild Road, The Heavenly Horse From the Outermost West, etc) you’ll probably enjoy these as well.
*flails* I loved these books! And now there are MORE! Wooooooo! ^_^ *dance*
