Summary

Jacky Leon isn’t someone who goes looking for trouble. She owns a bar, pays her taxes, and serves her drinks cold outside a small town in Texas. The fact that she’s a werecat is just something she’s had to live with. Alone in her territory, she’s lived a secretive life for six years: under the radar, avoiding her past and the baggage that comes with it. 

Trouble finds Jacky, though, in the form of an 11-year-old girl and a werewolf turf war just outside her borders. Forced to honor an ancient treaty and the Laws of the supernatural world, Jacky swears an oath to protect Carey Everson, the human daughter of a local werewolf Alpha from Dallas. 

When his enemies come after Jacky and her charge, she’s going to have to embrace the more dangerous side of who and what she is. She’s going to have to challenge the very Laws that govern her kind. 

And nothing is going to stop her from honoring her word.

Great listen!

I love these books and had read them before getting the audiobook. I am quite picky about narrator's voices but love this one. She expresses the feelings fully without it seeming overacted. Jacky Leon is a great character and I want to hear what will happen in her life next.

Okay Read

The story has a okay plot about the conflict between honour and law. After a very slow start - I almost gave up - the plot line improved with a few surprises and plot twists before a somewhat predictable ending. That said, I enjoyed it and would buy the next book in the series and look out for other books from this author.

Jacky Leon is up there with Mercy Thompson

Jacky Leon is up there with Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels in terms of quality Urban Fantasy books. She is compelling and the world is rich and expansive. This plot revolves around protecting the human daughter of a werewolf alpha, when called to Duty. Jacky is justice. She knows what is right and what is wrong. And no matter how hard she will do what is right, even if it means breaking one or more of the Laws that govern supernaturals. I love her and I cannot wait for the more.

Jacky Leon is BadA$$ with a heart

KN Banet never fails to bring it! No matter the series, she keeps you hooked and wanting more! I am not a fan of Audible books, but this was well done! I read the book as well as listened and the Narrator did a great job of keeping me engrossed in the story line. Jacky Leon is tough and I love that the main story line is completed, so you are not left in a cliffhanger, yet the back story keeps you intrigued and looking forwards to the next issue.

LOVE IT!

The best action packed book I’ve read in a while. I laughed out loud and got tears in my eyes also. Exceptional writing of a down to earth personality in Lead character. Can not wait to read book 2. This is a long book, but it seemed to fly by because I was so engrossed. Thank you K. N. Banet.

Great book with good narrationyy66yuu666uu66uuu666

Jacky Leon is a different type of shifter story. This book is about a cat shifter protecting a human child. When things go wrong, Jacky pursues the only course that her honor allows. Jacky is a strong female alpha character with principles that guide her to do the right thing even if it could result in consequences for herself. I originally read this book. When I saw the audio available I picked it up. I enjoyed the narrator and enjoyed listening to Jacky's story again. I really like this series. This is the first book. The world building and characters evolve as the story progresses. I recommend this series.

Really enjoyed this book!

I really enjoyed the story of Jacky Leon. I really liked that I didn’t know who the bad guys were until K.N. Banet was ready for me to know. ( that doesn’t always happen) I’m ready to see what happens next in this series.

Decent world-building; uneven pacing

The most realized aspect of this were/shifter story is the way the various species interact, especially cat-shifters, wolf-shifters and humans. The story lags in places with the lead character doing a lot of internal dialoguing. The characters are sufficiently interesting that I'd try another by this author. The audiobook's narrator does a good job; I particularly like the main character's voice.

A great book/listen

This was a surprise book. I truly enjoyed this book. Great character development. Great narration. It’s a clean book with no adult situations that would call the book into question. I look forward to listening to the nest books in this series. I high recommend this title if you looking for a great story without the mature content.
