Review: Cathy’s Ring

January 31, 2009


18 year old Cathy is running from trouble.  It seems that Ancestor Lu (an immortal) wants her boyfriend Victor (another immortal) to find a way to make mortals immortal.  He threatens to kill Cathy if Victor doesn’t comply.  Rather than endangering her friends and her boyfriend, Cathy runs.  Her friends catch up with her and stand by her.  They find Ancestor Lu and confront him.  I won’t tell you anymore because I don’t want to give away too much of the story.

I found the plot of Cathy’s Ring by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman a little bit hard to follow.  I’m not sure if it’s because it’s the third book in the series (and the first I’ve read) or because I am not the target audience.  This book is intended for teens and does have a sappy love line in it.  It also has some great illustrations and doodles throughout.  It will be published on May 4, 2009 by Running Press.

    I’m going to read the first two before I read this. I think it’s pretty interactive and that everything is going to relate back to something else. But then again, I’ve always wanted to read this series so it’s a good excuse to start at the beginning!

    I think that some of the problem may be that you didn’t start at the beginning. I haven’t read any of these yet, but the series is on my wish list.

    Kathy, I’m always impressed by the great variety of books you read!

    The first one is Cathy’s Book, right? I have that in my TBR. (I’ve left a similar comment so many times on so many books that I’m starting to think I have a problem!)

    I’ve left you an award! Stop by when you get a chance and pick it up!

    I got this one unsolicited and I passed it along to a friend who has two youngsters who are avid readers. Sounds like they’re really going to enjoy it!

    Well… lately I have been feasting on teen and sappy love… sounds like it might be up my alley? Thanks for the review.

    I got this one too and am trying to decide whether to read the whole series or just the one. It’s not my usual style…and yet they seem pretty quick. So, Hmmm.

    Haven’t heard of this one. Doesn’t sound like my cup of tea, but the cover is neat.

    I asked Nona and she said the first two books should be read first. Each book is a journal and builds upon the previous.
