Publisher's Summary

A human spirit banished to the body of a cat.

Merliss has seen centuries of change, centuries of trouble.

Something nasty has come through one of the ley gates. It walks upright. It talks. And it looks like an oversized cat, but as Merliss can attest, it doesn't smell like a cat.

It's a cat sidhe on the hunt for slaves, anyone with opposable thumbs. Merliss travels to unknown territories to rescue a friend and encounters more trouble making her way home. The situation on the moors is far more dire than Merliss and her friends could have imagined.

Cat Sidhe is the first in a fantasy trilogy. Join Merliss on her prowls through dangerous lands.

What a delight!

What a delightful story... The book follows Merliss, a cat who's not really a cat at all, but a human spirit that was ensorcelled centuries ago... And boy does she have her work cut out for her in this story...
The Cat Sidhe are crossing over into human territory and they're up to no good... Merliss loses herself crossing the ley-lines and needs to get home quick so she can sound the alarm... To find her way Merliss accepts aid from some very unlikely sources, such as wolves and birds. This tale just whet my appetite, leaving me wanting more, and more, and more (please, sir, may I have some more?)!
Jannie Meisberger shot her way up onto my favorites list for her narration of Merliss' tail!

Slow Start but Solid Ending

The first half of the story seemed to be a bit slow to me but once it picked up I really enjoyed it. It took me a while to get into it as it was mainly conversations between animals in the beginning but was definitely worth it in the end.

Wasn’t expecting this level of fantasy but was surprisingly pleased. The characters are all quite interesting and the story gets quite exciting. Now that the setting has been set I think the next books in the trilogy will really take off.

Jannie Meisberger did a really good job with the narration. I really enjoyed her voice and accent. Both are perfect for this story and I really hope she continues with the rest of the trilogy.

A fantastic fantasy story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a bit of a slow starter, but it picks up significantly about midway through. The story is actually quite an interesting take on fae lore. I would consider it worth powering through the slow first half to get to the latter half. The narration, though, is what got me past that. Jannie Meisberger's voice is full of character and really lends itself to this story so well. She gave it a very magical "feel" that I really enjoyed. All in all, I thought this was great fantasy and well worth a listen. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.

A bit slow at first but magical to the bone...:)

The first in any series is a tough one for the writer, I think. It has to introduce the characters, it has to set the events for the whole series, it has to literally drag the reader into the world created so that they want to stay and read on... Sometimes that means that the pace of the book is a bit slow, especially at the beginning. And that's the case here, thus one star deducted for the story... But that's the only fault of the book I can pinpoint for you:)

The book is narrated through two different characters (the kind of narration I really like), one of whom is a very wise cat (who is not really a cat:)) and the other a girl (not so wise, as it turns out, well, not in the cat's eyes, at least:)). This parallel narration adds quite a lot of dynamics to the story, but it also adds that almost undescribable magical feel that you can find in fantasy classics, books in which the magical takes precedence over action - think The Witch World series by Andre Norton or Mercedes Lackey's stories... Some of those tales, when you think of that, are books where nothing much happens - they are more about the journey inside and discovering yourself than action-packed adventures - and yet we read them, we are enchanted by them, we don't want to leave their worlds... And this is exactly how I felt listening to 'Cat Sidhe' - there's definitely magic in that book:)

The interpretation by Ms Meisberger is perfect, as usual. She's one of my favourites, very good both in the narrative parts and when it comes to conveying emotions and adding personality to the book's characters. She's an ideal narrator for the kind of tale that Jeff Chapman is weaving here...

Good story

Interesting story full of magic. The main character is interesting and different and the plot, while simple, is executed well. It is a very good quick listen.

Excellent Story!

I'm very much looking forward to the next installment of this perfectly written tale. The narrator immerses the listener into it flawlessly.

New discoveries.

This is a first for me, a new genre a new adventure.
Because this genre is new to me it took me a while to understand what’s going on but once I got it and into it there was no stopping me from getting all the way into the story.
Jeff Chapman can surely tell a tale and Jannie Meisberger have done a great job narrating the whole thing beautifully.
I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out, I feel that it will be full of surprises and twists.

Absolutely recommend this audiobook !!!

A portal to an other world

I was given this free review copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review.
I wasn't sure if I would like this book. I gave it a go and It turned out I loved this book. If I'm completely honest I never wanted it to end and hope for a sequel. when I realised there was talking animals it kind of put me off. This book was written in such a way that it feels natural for animals to be talking. If you like magic, mystery, witches & shapshifting creatures this book is definitely for you. I must add the narrator was perfect for this book which for me is very important as I've purchased books before and been disappointed by bad narration that has spoiled my listening.
Overview is, great author and also great narration so definitely worth a listen.
