Ratha's Creature

Ratha's Creature
by Clare Bell

Ratha's Creature is about a clan of sentient prehistoric cats who are trying to survive in a new world. It mostly centers around Ratha, a strong willed female of her species who starts out as a herding female (which is rare, in their clan, that a female becomes a herder) that becomes a vital part of her species by harnessing the power of fire. This is the first book of the series that started, I believe, in the 1980's and was recently re-released and continued just last year. I enjoyed the humor, the drama, and the refreshing excitement the author brings. This book and series is on my top 5 list. -- recommended by Jessica C. - Gere Branch Library
