Books to Look For

Feral Nights by Cynthia Leitch Smith Young Adult Fiction (2013)

When Yoshi’s sister Ruby goes missing, he strikes out for Austin to try to track her down, where he must deal with not only with homo sapians, but also vampires and all kinds of werepeople, human and animal mixes. Yoshi, a werecat himself, heads to the vampire-themed restaurant where his sister last worked, and meets Clyde, a werepossum who is haunted by the ghost of his best friend, Travis, and Aimee, the human girl he is crushing on, who also works at the restaurant. Clyde believes Travis was killed by Ruby, so he is less than thrilled to see Yoshi. But appearances can be deceiving, and the three uneasy partners eventually set out to both find Ruby and the truth about who or what caused Travis’s death.

Based on characters from the author’s previous book Tantalize (YA Fiction), you don’t have to read one to enjoy the other, but why not try both exciting paranormal mysteries? They’d make great summer reading!
