A Warning from someone who knows...
“We all like to believe we are masters of our fate. However, usually it isn’t true. Somewhere, a person exists, sometimes completely unknown to you, whose slightest action impacts your life.”
Jason Connors, the head of the FBI, becomes involved in a simple immigration case in which a doctor from Africa has married an American woman so he can enter the United States. Some claim the doctor is not human, but rather a cat-like alien species that can mimic the human form. Determined to discover what is really going on, he sends his brightest agent, Carmella Ginkabo to Africa, to uncover the facts. Courageously, she travels deep into the jungle to learn the truth from the first of this species who originally landed on Earth two hundred years prior. Her discovery alters the future of Earth forever.
Catina’s muscles ached from straining against the vines that bound her wrists to the stakes. Sweat rolled down her sides, then dripped onto the thick green bed of the jungle floor. Hours had passed since the Marobi tribe had stripped her naked and tied her, kneeling on all fours, like a sheep waiting for slaughter.
A sharp pain on her thigh jolted her from her exhaustion. She tossed her head back, swinging her long sweaty strands of blonde hair against her side, much as a horse uses its tail to swat away flies. The scent of her sweat-drenched body seemed to attract every damn insect within five miles. Their constant biting and burrowing in her skin was far worse than what she initially thought the Marobis planned to do.
When they cut away her clothes and pushed her down on her hands and knees, she expected to be raped or sodomized. Yet, once they had her secured and defenseless, the men silently disappeared into the dense jungle. That had been hours ago. At least she felt it had been hours ago. Time had a way of distorting when insects burrowed in your flesh.
Her body went rigid as she felt the cool caress of a snake crossing her leg. Her weary mind ran through the countless deadly snakes that inhabited this jungle as she remained perfectly still. A hard blow and piercing pain struck her thigh. Bitten.
I’m going to die. Staked to the ground like a sheep to slaughter. I’m going to die.

Cat Refuge is a unique story which tells of shifters who have settled on Earth. They are stronger and more intelligent than ordinary humans. They are here with a specific purpose and set about to ensure the survival of their species.
Ms. O'Connor has the best imagination as she weaves tales which keep you on the edge of your seat or up at night reading. I've learned that her characters will dig their ways into my heart, even if they aren't always on the good side.
Cat Refuge is a story with many twists and turns. Just when you think the characters will finally find a happy ending, another crisis changes things. Luckily, Ms. O'Connor has a heart and does give the reader (and her wonderful characters) a happy ending...but it is the first in a series so there's bound to be more danger ahead!
A great read for fans of fantasy and shifters. You'll not be able to look at your cat in the same way!
