The Halloween themed anthology Entangled contains novellas by authors I know and love, and by authors I have yet to try. Edie Ramer was one of those new -to-me authors, but after reading The Fat Cat, Ramer’s contribution to the anthology, she has become one of those authors that I love.
In a battle for the souls of seven women, a wizard has the god of war on his side; all the witch has is a fat, black cat.
The Fat Cat was, simply put, hilarious. Tory, a new witch, wanted a cute female kitten to replace her nasty ex. Instead, she wound up with Samson – an old, fat, black, male cat. But Samson does have good qualities too – he’s telepathic and has a wicked sense of humor. Tory, for her part, was a strong heroine. Both in the sense that she was able to carry around her fat cat and that she had a backbone that wouldn’t let her cower from the evil wizard.
The Fat Cat was short, energetic and had one epic battle of good vs. evil. Even though Tory, her brother Max and his wife Sorcha all first appeared in one of Ramer’s other ebooks, Cattitude, you don’t have to read it to understand and enjoy The Fat Cat.
If that doesn’t entice you to try out Entangled, then I should add that all proceeds are being donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. A totally worthy cause and all the more reason for you to go out a buy this anthology!
