In honor of the recent publication of the fourth Guardian Cats story, I’m going to be holding a free giveaway for each of Guardian Cats stories over each of the next four weeks. This week, we’re going back to where it all began, at Shin-Nephura’s Neighborhood:
They are still among us, hidden here and there; the cats who remember the Old Compact: you provide a home for us, feed us, take care of us in our illness, and we will protect you from the dangers of the night. They operate below the sight lines of humanity, dealing with dangers that we would never notice until it was too late. They remember the old magics of Freya, Bast and Hecate. They are the Guardian Cats.
Shin-Nephura is the Guardian Cat of the neighborhood of Inwood, at the northern point of Manhattan. And tonight, something terrible has crawled out of the Hudson River to prey on sleeping two-legs of the neighborhood she protects. Something that may be too much for her to handle.
You want to know something crazy? The neighborhood in question has changed enormously in the few short years since this story was first published. The bodega on the cover is gone now, replaced by a trendy restaurant.
Anyway, if that sounds good to you, head on over to Amazon and download yourself a free copy of Shin-Nephura’s Neighborhood. And as always, while you’re there, be sure to check out the rest of the library!
