Publisher's Summary

His human father named him Cam, as he and his clan were chameleon cats. Kol-ha is what the clan called him, which means shame in clannish. Being a half-breed, Cam was not allowed to take the test to become a clan member. Cam decides that rather than not being worthy to be part of the clan, the clan is not worthy of him. Taking nothing, he leaves the clan to find his place in the world. Though ignorant of the ways of the "outside" world, Cam is a quick learner. His first lesson is the outside world is at war, and he is inadvertently drawn into it. 

Saving the life of a nobleman’s son, from an invading army’s scouts sets him on a path to meet the King of the Eastern Kingdom. As a reward, Cam is given lands and becomes a pawn in the King’s chess game. Cam sees it for what it is and decides he doesn’t want any part of the King’s game. Fate, however, has a different plan. Cam discovers two moored airships in a plague-stricken village with a single survivor, La-mar. He also finds new weapon innovations and information that will change the balance of power in the Kingdoms. 

With La-mar’s help, Captain Cam finds himself and his ships back in the King’s chess game. This time it’s with more than one King and Kingdom playing, and they’re playing for blood. When they kill some of Cam’s friends, he spoils their chessboard when he starts playing by his rules of fang and claw.

Hidden gem

I bought this book on a whim, thinking it would be a good book as a buffer between two series to listen too. What I did not expect is how much I enjoyed and was enthralled by the story and the characters. The Mc not only shows intelligence and wisdom in his choices, but also respects and honors the people around him. The author also creates this world and gives so much detail, that it is easy to picture it in your mind.

For the narrator, Daniel Wisniewski is one of the best narrators out there and a personal favorite. I have listened to many books that he has narrated and everyone he embodies the character. Not going over the top nor doing a monotone voice. He gives real emotion and understands the mindset of the character he is preforming. All in all, fantastic book and narration.

Really enjoyable

A Rags to Riches story following a steampunk Cat-Man in a world built for his taking. Ready for #2! I'm a Science Fiction reader but delved into the series after finding it on GoodReads recommendations and couldn't be happier. My only regret is that there is only one book! Great for a snowy winters day or a window chill session with the family's cat. light listening and no doubt fun for young and old alike.

My favorite one!

I recently discovered James Haddock and have been binging on his books. Some reviewers complain about the MC being overpowered, but sometimes I want to read about a superhero or James Bond rather than someone who struggles the whole way through.

A most enjoyable Audible.

This was a fun Audible, Daniel Wisniewski once again showcasing another aspect of wide range of voices dialects with all characters being unique. Note too that this Audible narration was very different from "Mage Throne Prophecy".
It was left open ended so there must be another book in the works. At least I hope so. Loved the conniving greedy Royals.

Enjoy!

Nararors should avoid sudo Scots/ Irish accents they caused much hilarity having said that who doesn't like to laugh.
if you enjoyed the other books you will love this one.
