This is one of the most anticipated stories to come out of the Cassie Scott universe! For me personally, I have been awaiting this follow up tale since the conception of baby Jay. A mother who will do anything to protect her baby is a fierce and powerful read. Kaitlin’s Tale is no exception.

Realization has hit Kaitlin that her human life and the life of her child are very much in jeopardy. Xavier is beginning to grow impatient, and Jason? Well, anything that was once left of his humanity seems to be all but gone at this point. Feeling the end of her time as human coming, she must push herself beyond extremes to get her son to safety.  With the help of some unlikely allies in the hunter community Kaitlin must humble herself to obtain her ultimate goals.

Kaitlin’s Tail is very much a story of self-discovery and personal growth. Learning to navigate a hostile environment, keep secrets hidden, decide who is helping and who just wants you dead has Kaitlin in a constant struggle for truth.

Unlikely heroes and a heart-stopping race for safety will keep you on the edge of your seat. One of the best reads to come from Amsden to date. Smart, edgy and full of adrenaline!
