Great pet fiction - which is a theme that I love. If only it didn't feel like the setup for a first volume of a series, and if only I didn't have the sinking feeling that the rest of this series will never come about. I saw a comment from the co-author Michael Barnette that Auburnimp has retired from writing, which immediately made me sad about this very promising story now doomed to non-completion. (There is closure in this volume, it just didn't feel like an all problems resolved HEA end.)
Oh well, authors can change their minds too and my hope for this series will be that the author misses writing and comes out with the second volume, which I will be waiting to buy.
