      OH-kay. The teenage heroine actually says, "AW HECK" and plays chess with her significant other (who looks like James Bond. In denim). No, Dream Cat has (thankfully) ZERO in common with "Twilight", but I still reserve the right to post these:AND ***********************************************INTERLUDE: Extra! Extra! From the author herself - a great summary of what she was trying to accomplish in this book. Love it! -----------------------------------------------------------------------Back to ( [...]

      I won this book through the Giveaways! Thank you for the copy!!3.5/5 stars This is a really interesting book. At time I was laughing and so eager to turn to the next page. The book is very simple. There are just a few characters, and the storyline progresses very quickly. In a nutshell, the book is about a girl who never fit in, who finds out she is a part of an old secretive line of humans who slay demons. The story chronicles her training in the various types of combat as she prepares to take [...]

      You don't have to worry about having to trudge through wordy descriptions to get to know the characters in Dream Cat. This story just races forward and keeps you right on track as you are introduced to the most interesting characters with both human and supernatural relationships and abilities. There is plenty of humor and it doesn't detract from the very serious situations. I'm sure you too will be hoping the continuation of this story is published soon.

      I’d like to begin by thanking GoodReads and their First Reads program for giving me the opportunity to read and review Kat Lowe’s “Dream Cat”. I’m going to be very honest; I disliked this book, and it was a struggle for me to finish it. If this hadn’t been a First Reads win, I probably wouldn’t have bothered to finish it. BUT because the publisher/author took the time (and money) to mail this copy to me, I felt that I at least owed them a commitment; beginning to end. Firstly, I wa [...]

      Say the truth, I really am very disappointed. It was not as great as I expected - that or I do not know how to appreciate it. It is confusing and messy, the story don't really make sense (to me), and the ending was too drama, to the extent that it was damn fake. Sorry for my harsh words, but my vocabulary is quite limited. No offence, but I really don't like the book.

      Need to be willing to accept this is satire before reading - including the writing style being a satire of the styles of "popular" (read Twilight) fiction.Love the premise - if I can put aside the deliberately annoying language tics I think this will be fun.

      A good first effort.This book is hard to classify. The title and cover art seemed to be directed at a young YA audience. The story is very simple, and might appeal to middle school aged boys; however, the protagonist and 1st person narrator is an 18-year-old girl, who sometimes seems much younger, but at other times much more sophisticated. There are no child characters.As I said, the story is very simple. On her 18th birthday, Elizabeth learns that she is an Argonaut, a member of a secret socie [...]

      Okay, so admittedly, I was introduced to this book after filling out hours of forms and essays and the like for scholarships. I saw the front cover of Dream Cat and I thought, 'Finally! Something simple!'. I was completely unprepared for what I was about to read. To be perfectly honest, I am an 18 year-old high school senior that has maybe read 3 or 4 books of her own free will over the course of her life (though I do love to write), and somehow I find myself sitting here, two hours passed, engr [...]

      I won this book through the First-read program. The book's description piqued my interest in it, and then the cover sealed the deal. The personal's ad at the front made me laugh, and the cheeky little sheep made me want to pick it up. Unfortunately, the rest of the cover design gave me the distinct impression that the book was geared more towards children but then the book itself disavowed me of that notion through clever writing and some rather pointed adult references that never really crosse [...]

      (I received this book for free through First Reads program.) The rating is actually 2mething stars. I can't give it a 2 star rating because it was actually a fast read, with good, solid writing, but 3 stars would not be quite accurate since I didn't "like it".As can be gleamed from the blurb, in Dream Cat the Argonauts are warriors, made by a single Creator, who fight demons and, specifically, Lucifer. This premise doesn't really work, since Argonauts are from Greek mythology and Lucifer belong [...]

    • Chandni says:

      This is a really hard book for me to review. I feel like it had a really unique idea, but it didn’t really deliver. It seemed like it didn’t know who its audience was. It felt like a cross between a young adult and an adult novel, but didn’t really fit the mold of either. The pace of the book is also slightly off. It’s hard to put my finger on it, but it just seemed to jump around a lot. I think the best word to describe the novel is arbitrary. It was lacking cohesion.The characters fell [...]

      I won a copy of this book through a giveaway.1.5/5 starsThe concept of this story really interested me, it seemed to have lots of potential. However, the story was very fast paced and felt quite rushed, which took away from the plot and caused it to lack in areas of character development, background, detail and descriptions. It was probably because of this that the story didn't really draw me in as most books do and I didn't really find it that hard to put down. But that's not to say that there [...]

      Elizabeth knows she doesn't fit in, she's known since childhood. So when she finds herself chased and mauled by a bear whose chest appeared to contain a writhing black bag, healed by Andrew - a man with James Bond eyes who tells her she is a demon slayer, an Argonaut-in-training so to speak, well, she's ready. They need to travel the globe to complete that training and she discovers time is short, in bare weeks she'll have her 'final exam' involving more writhing black bags (demons, she'd learne [...]

      A GiveawayI loved this short book, I sat up till 2am to finish it.Argonauts are demon slayers, Elizabeth is a young girl who has always had strange dreams and unusual things have repeatedly happened around her.As she nears her 17th birthday she is introduced to her training partner Andrew. They can speak with one another telepathically, he is the man of her dreams in more ways than one and he is training her to be an argonaut.It is a fast paced novel with believable characters, the dream times [...]

    • Becky Condit says:

      Actually 4 1/2 stars.Even if the reader is unfamiliar with the historical figures and established fictional characters who have already been empowered as Argonauts, there is enough explanation and discussion to interest the reader, if not encourage him or her to do a little more investigation. This is sci-fi, history, fantasy, adventure, mystery and morals in human life rolled into one book. It’s a lengthy book but any young adult who waded through the seven book series of Harry Potter would n [...]

      Won a copy of this book through a giveaway! :) Thank you!The story is interesting. It was easy and fun to read. I just couldn't get if this book is intended for YA readers or middle school readers. The cover is a little animated for me. The book itself has potential though. It's funny and light although the protagonist can be a little childish and off sometimes. I also felt that the book is fast-moving. Maybe a little too rushed. I could have enjoyed it more if it was a little slower. I actuall [...]

      I won a copy of this book through the GoodReads First Reads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. So here goesOverall I found this an enjoyable read. It is not at all like anything else I have ever read and so I kept on reading because I wanted to find out what happened next. I enjoyed the diferent characters and the around the world, the incorporation of religion and mythology. The book has a fast pace, which at times left me feeling things needed expanding on to make full sense. Also the [...]

      Dream Cat had some good ideas that never came to fruition. The writing style was too choppy for a smooth read. With a little more editing, this could be a great book. Also, the cover does nothing for this book.

    • Meagan says:

      I read this book for the scholarship oportunity and was pleasently suprised at how good it was. It was a bit fast paced and short for my liking, and I wish it had been a bit more detailed. Other than that I liked it very much I hope to see a continuation sometime in the near future.

    • Farzana rahmann says:

      Well i win this book from yay!!! But just found the time to read it and i have got to say it was a easy read but with alot of interesting concepts in it. I loved the story line and was hoping for a sequal as it was a short read with only 184 pages.

    • Cheryl says:

      Stayed up all night to finish this book. Initial reaction: WOW, I am not a history buff. Haha. More after a few hours of sleep. SO TIRED.Alright. Dream Cat is hilarious, fresh, and educational! Super fast, super cute. Not so religious, so no need to worry about that. It's a great read.

      I simply adored Andrew's fair, mature rationalization of Lucifer's perspective!Great comedy, sarcasm, and fun to be found here.Won this book on giveaway.

    • Erin Cataldi says:

      Great idea, but a little choppy, hard to understand and follow in most places. Great attempt but more description and explanations were necessary.
