Cynthia Leitich Smith and FERAL PRIDE!

Posted by Tami Brown on Wed, Feb 25, 2015 @ 08:02 AM

A double round of cheers for fabulous faculty member, friend, and YA and children's lit champion Cynthia Leitich Smith and the launch of not one but two great books into the wild! Feral Pride, the last book in the Feral trilogy is brand new in bookstores, joined by the paperback release of Feral Curse (the middle child in that series.) HIP HIP HOOORAY for Cyn!

0763659118.medAnti-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.

You can buy both books (along with Feral Nights, the first in the series) at a bookstore near you!
