5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow-up to "Foul is Fair", 20 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Brinded Cat (The Witch Hunters) (Kindle Edition)
I like Sam's (Samhain) character. Upon beginning this review I looked for further literature about our magically-challenged witch. There is a novel ("Death's Daughter") in the inning, but I do not know when it is going to be published. "The Brinded Cat" (striped cat) is even more fun than "Foul is Fair".

Witches and their cats! Or maybe it is witches and their familiars. In this case Mrs. McGinty's cat is caught in a tree and Sam is asked by her boss, Fin, to climb up and rescue it. Fin is involved with Mrs. McGinty and therefore amenable to granting her small favors, but Fin is also afraid of heights. So Sam has to step into the fray and keep Fin in Mrs. McGinty's favour, and she does. That is after all what good friends do. We support our friends in their affairs of the heart, but only to a certain point.

When Sam meets Mrs. McGinty's cat, she realises that perhaps the cat needs rescuing but not rescuing from the tree. And off we go.

Sam is adorable. Ms. Halpin has made her strong, vulnerable, insightful, experienced and funny. I think perhaps I like people who protect under-dogs (well, in this case a cat). The vulnerable need protecting and once upon a time Sam herself found such protection when she most needed it.

How old would you have to be to read "The Brinded Cat"? Well, "The Brinded Cat" is safe enough for a five-year old to read the story, but I doubt they would get much out of it. There is extremely little violence and no sexual content. Beyond that I haven't got a clue. There is plenty of action, some fighting, lots of magic, and a look at trust.
