Publisher's Summary

When puberty brings on her first shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years - until finally learning to change back. She can change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two-year disappearance was because she'd been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats, and no alpha. She's a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do great things in today's world, amongst humans. She only has her instincts to guide her, and those drive her to train herself to extremes. She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.

    "Narrator sounds like Nanna reading a bible story"
    Would you try another book written by P. G. Allison or narrated by Meghan Kelly?

    Yes - I'm in enjoying the book, but I don't like the narration. I find myself either getting irritated or tuning out.


    What other book might you compare Missy the Werecat to, and why?

    Hard to say - it's nice having a "coming of age" were story for once.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Meghan Kelly’s performances?

    Nope


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Probably not


    Any additional comments?

    I'm enjoying the story, but I don't think that this has the right narrator

    Story
    "Missy the Werecat"
    If you could sum up Missy the Werecat in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, entertaining, LOL


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Missy the Werecat?

    From her having to change with out knowing, to her standing up for her friend, to her falling in love.


    What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She has a lovely voice to listen to, and is great to relax with.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Missy is very sassy and the banter with her fiends makes you chuckle out loud. I don't think this is a very sad story so no tears.

    "A brilliant and gritty coming of age story"
    If you could sum up Missy the Werecat in three words, what would they be?

    Great pace
    Werecat
    Original


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is not the typical shifter paranormal story, she has no pack, no-one to learn from or relate too. She needs to figure out everything herself. It's not just about being a Werecat but about learning how to be a young woman with unique and special abilities and how to best use those for herself and others.


    Which character – as performed by Meghan Kelly – was your favourite?

    Missy. She is a very complex character and she is very likeable. Strong but not too much so that it makes her untraceable.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What would you do if you turned into a Werecat. Where would you go?

    Story
    "Not the Worst Story I've Listened too!"

    Missy the Werecat by P.G. Allison is a coming of age story about a young teenage girl who can shift into a Werecate. Due to recessed genes passed down through the generations, she's born with the ability to shift into a Werecat and comes into her abilities once she hits puberty. This story follow's Missy as she comes into paranormal/shifter abilities, fine turns her fighting skills, matures sexually, and helps other's.

    Unfortunately, this story was not for me. It had a slow start, was very fact oriented, and felt more like a prequel than a novel which I could have dealt with, but what put the nail in the coffin for me was Missy's character was too young and one dimensional for me to relate too. She's comes across as a 15 year old overachiever, perfect, very attractive and sexually mature.

    While this story was not for me, I could see how a younger generation may like the story or where the series is heading. As for me, I will not be continuing with any of the other stories in the series. However, in the future, if P.G. Allison writes other stories or in other genres, I would consider reading/listening to them.

    Meghan Kelly did a great job narrating this story.

    I gave the story an overall two stars due to the writing and lack of character development.

    Story
    "Please show me, don't tell me"

    This felt more like listening to someone describe what happened in a book they read than actually reading a book myself. There was very little dialogue or action and way too much dry "this happened and then this happened." The whole book felt like a preface and I kept waiting for the actual story to start.
    I tried to like it. A YA Paranormal story about a werecat with my name seemed super fun and light but it was just not engaging or entertaining. So boring.

    Story
    "Young Adult or Elementary School?"
    Would you try another book from P. G. Allison and/or Meghan Kelly?

    The author? Maybe. The narrator? I really don't think so.


    What was most disappointing about P. G. Allison’s story?

    I'm halfway through this book, and I'm not sure I can finish it, which is extremely rare for me. I generally don't write reviews and try not to be critical of authors, but I'm honestly horribly disappointed that I purchased this book based on the star counts that it has.The story was written with hugely broad generalization of story lines and extremely contrived and unrealistic dialogue. The story felt like an elementary school book written for small children with storybook like occurrences such as Missy telling a young child she saves to call her if she ever needed to talk and how everyone in the room could see they were now bonded like sisters. Someone in an earlier review mentioned how this book seems more like a summary of a plotline for a book and you keep waiting for the story to start, this is EXACTLY my sentiment. Another way to look at it is that it reads like a Disney story telling you how everything happened with no descriptive language about the events. Missy ran away to the mountains, she was attacked by a bear, she got shot by a hunter (this is all in chapter one or two not really a spoiler) nothing describes any of these events, you are just told they happened. At first you think "OK so back story explaining how she came to be" but No! It never stops. The whole first half of the book so far is written like that.The dialogue?? Just, wow. Conversations between FBI agents and doctors, or doctors and nurses that would never happen filled with language they would never use and completely contrived to summarize a story line. This is one of the biggest negatives of this book to me. I could live with the summarizing of events if, when she did she decide to go into detail, the author made it realistic, but she doesn't.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    When reading story elements, the narrator is great, I enjoy her reading. However, I would prefer she continued to use her natural voice rather than attempt to give the characters voices as the voices she creates are, sadly, awful. The women all sound like 40 year old blueblood snobs (or as someone else said, Nannies) and then men are just... I can't even decide. Listening to her voice dialogue is painful, and when combined with the extremely contrived dialogue the story suffers from in the first place, makes for a bad listening experience.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I've come across so far.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said, I don't normally write reviews. If I don't enjoy a book I simply don't buy books from that author anymore. I have 210 books in my library purchased since 2011 and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.

    Where does Missy the Werecat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very good story and lively blend of action and character development.


    What did you like best about this story?

    easy pace to listen and not overly developed on any one scene


    Have you listened to any of Meghan Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only criticism is the voices of many of the males voices lack realism and I wish the narration could include male and females for a proper effect.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a few chuckles but the story wasn't one that should make a person laugh or cry


    Any additional comments?

    On to Book 2

    "Good book could have less random crimes in it"
    What made the experience of listening to Missy the Werecat the most enjoyable?

    I liked how it was a coming of age story. Though I found the amount of rape and criminal activity to be unlikely. The main character was always stumbling upon some crime or something, then rescuing the hapless victim, it got a bit repetitive after a while. Without the crimes it reads like someone's experience of high school, only with more turning into a mountain lion. I got this book in exchange for a review

    "Hope to see all the series."

    I have read these books on Kindle first and I reread them every now and then (mostly when a new one comes out). I really enjoy audible books so I try and get audible versions of print books I enjoy. This is the first book in the Missy story and the story is a little rough but the series, in my opinion, gets better and the writing style gets better. These are quick, fast past adventures. The reader does a good job and I hope that the rest of the series is also done.

    "could of been better"

    the narrator made every other women sound like a nasally jersey queito, like Rosann or Fanny. it was almost to annoying. Also they gave Missy a little too much common sense and too smart for a hormonal teenage girl which eventually she eventually grew into.
